    AUCKLAND COUNCIL DECIDES SHOOTING AND CAMPING ARE ILLEGAL

    Auckland Council has changed how it interprets the Resource Management Act, by denying that there is a provision for some level of discharge under section 5.5.41 of the act. It has recently
    revoked a certificate of compliance for the Auckland Shooting Club on the basis that there "may be" discharge of contaminants, despite a High Court ruling that the activity is allowed, and processes in place to ensure that no discharge will occur. Auckland Council was required by the High Court to simply reconsider the issue of the certificate taking into account the discharge permitted under the act.

    On 19 December of last year, Auckland Council wrote in a letter that the Auckland Shooting Club ranges “..may need a consent to discharge contaminants in the long term, at this stage there is no evidence of any discharge to trigger the need for a discharge consent.”

    However, Auckland Council has reversed its own interpretation that it has applied to all permitted activities until now.

    The RMA prohibits any discharge unless there is a specific rule. As Auckland Council has decided on its own that the only rule that allows for discharge up to a certain level has no meaning, there is no provision for any activity that has a small discharge. This means that legally Auckland Council can’t ‘give you a pass’ because a discharge is small. By its own interpretation,
    Auckland Council no longer has a legal basis for allowing even small discharges and must require a consent for any discharge. Auckland Council has now made many past-times illegal for
    New Zealanders in the Auckland region.

    The result of this Auckland Council decision is that no minimum discharge is allowed without a consent. This means that no matter where you live in Auckland the following will require a
    resouce consent for every property on which they are conducted:
    • pest control shooting (e.g. possums);
    • duck shooting;
    • other shooting for hunting purposes;
    • target shooting of any kind;
    • camping
    • painting your house;
    • building where there is any run-off- e.g. from concrete slabs;
    • etc.
    There will be many other things that you now cannot do without a resource consent. Using Wet and Forget? - Forget It. This will now need a resource consent. The application fee alone for a
    discharge resource consent is $11,500, and you will need consultant reports and be required to pay any other council costs. All discharge consents will also require iwi consultation.

    Smash it into all the skirting leaving black marks.
    I am not allowed to vacuum anymore

    I have heaps of advice on how to fuck up daily chores so that you get banned from doing them.

    Yeah I started out all helpful like and initially buggered everything up, by just being a mutton.
    Now it has become a science on how to muck up the simplest of tasks. I am quite good at it for some reason

    @upnorth uplander until I see an abatement notice or notice to rectifiy there is no issue where you are. And then I'd pull out the current consent for other stuff and argue it would be covered under that.
    Otherwise they need to shut down the railway and clean the rail corridor for asbestos contamination while they are at it
    I have the tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

    World famous in NZ @Rushy!!!

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/977...shooting-event

    Comments on the New Zealand Hunting and Shooting website suggest Auckland Shooters Club members have permission to still use the Makarau property, but that no events can be held.
    PS - Don't bother reading this article unless you want to be disappointed, it is complete rubbish by a writer that didn't bother doing any research just basically printed some hearsay and rumour... not surprising as it is Stuff.co.nz

    Think of all the research they must have done to find quotes on this site yet they never bothered to call the organiser and ask if it was one and the same as the pistol club.

    There is an agenda there and it was better for them to try and have a club 'deny' an allegation than for them to spend minutes to find there should not have been an allegation in the first place.
