Plan Change 7 seeks to better protect and maintain indigenous vegetation while still providing for its clearance, where it is small scale and low impact, to provide for the continuation of farming activities.

It will also amend the policies and rules around the type and size of native trees and plants (indigenous vegetation) that can be cleared generally across the district, and within areas of existing pasture (otherwise known as improved pasture) on coastal farmland.
