Information about NES for Contaminated Soil

The National Environmental Standard (NES) for Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health is now in force.

Further information on the effects this change will have on our District Plan is in the report "Important Information For All Subdivisions and Changes of Land Use, especially in Rural Subdivisions"

The full details are available on the Ministry for the Environment website.

The requirements for soil contamination are also available from the Ministry for the Environment.

Listed Land Use Register

ECan have developed an online Listed Land Use Register (LLUR) so that you can request information by visiting their website and completing a request form. Please note their disclaimer, this is an additional tool to help you.
