6A Making of submissions under clause 5A


If limited notification is given under clause 5A on a proposed change to a policy statement or plan, the only persons who may make submissions or further submissions on the proposed change are—


the persons given limited notification under clause 5A(3); and


the persons provided with a copy of the proposed change under clause 5A(8).


However, if a person with a right to make a submission could gain an advantage in trade competition through making a submission, that person may make a submission only if directly affected by an effect of the proposed change that—


adversely affects the environment; and


does not relate to trade competition or the effects of trade competition.


The local authority in its own area may make a submission.


Submissions must be made in the prescribed form.
