You will need a consent if your farm is not covered by Central Plains Water consent and: Yes, if you are a farming activity on a property greater than 10 hectares wholly or partially within the Phosphorus and Sediment Risk Area.
Costs will be based on actual processing costs of each application. The size of the initial deposit is set in the Environment Canterbury annual plan. At the end of the process, you will receive a refund or a bill of the difference between actual costs and the deposit. If however your farming activity has not changed in character, intensity, and scale you have a 6 month window in which to apply for a resource consent.

Your Farm Environment Plan will require you to set objectives and targets around minimising the movement of sediment and phosphorus into waterways. The Industry-agreed Good Management Practices relating to water quality should be used to guide your practices.
The industry-agreed Good Management Practices are available at www. As a result these farming activities are able to choose whether to receive a specific nitrogen discharge limit or not. The primary way your farming activity consent will be monitored will be through auditing of the Farm Environment Plan. Your first audit will be required 12 months after your consent is granted. The frequency of subsequent audits and follow up by Environment Canterbury compliance staff if necessary will be based on your audit grade.

The introductory text of the notified version of PC5 also stated submissions lodged on Plan Change 5 could not seek to amend the provisions in PC1 If the intent of Plan Change 5 had been to change the PC1 thresholds from which reductions were to be made, then the catchment load and percentage reductions would have been recalculated and changes made to the PC1 policies accordingly.
This will however need to reflect the minimum level of farm practices as contained in Policy This means the modelling of a farms nitrogen baseline needs to reflect the type of farming activity, the drainage characteristics of soil, climatic considerations and topography, the type of irrigation system used and the practices in Schedule Schedule 24 states irrigation application  needs to reflect use of soil moisture monitoring  , a soil water budget, or an irrigation scheduling calculator.

Please note there are further exceptions to these conditions for stock crossing points. Contact Customer Services for more information if you have a crossing point. If these conditions cannot be met and unless it is prohibited; as above , then you will need to apply for a resource consent.
The Canterbury Land and Water Regional Plan defines the bed of river in most situations as the space of land extending between the outward extremities of any stop bank or any flood protection vegetation. Where these are not present, the bed is defined as the space of land which the waters of a river cover at its fullest flow without overtopping its banks.
However for the braided rivers listed below, the bed is land through to the outer edge of any flood protection vegetation, or where no flood protection vegetation exist, the lesser of:. For further information on braided river tributaries in the Waimakairi and Rakaia river catchments please contact Customer Services.

The following Canadian provinces and territories observe Central Time in the areas noted, while their other areas observe Eastern Time:. Major exceptions include Lloydminster , a city situated on the boundary between Alberta and Saskatchewan.
The city charter stipulates that it shall observe Mountain Time and DST, putting the community on the same time as all of Alberta, including the major cities of Calgary and Edmonton. As a result, during the summer, clocks in the entire province match those in Alberta, but during the winter, clocks in most of the province match those in Manitoba.
Although all of Alabama is legally on Central Time, Phenix City and the nearby community of Smiths Station unofficially observe Eastern Time, as these areas are part of the metropolitan area of the considerably larger city of Columbus, Georgia in the Eastern Time Zone. Lanett and Valley observe Eastern Time historically because they were textile mill towns and the original home office of their mills was in West Point, Georgia.
The federal entities of Mexico that observe Central Time:. In Canada, Saskatchewan does not observe a time change. One reason that Saskatchewan does not take part in a time change is that, geographically, the entire province is closer to the Mountain Time Zone's meridian.
