To confirm if your forestry activities are managed under the NES-PF see the additional information attached to the NES-PF form, plus the National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry page on the Ministry for Primary Industries website
Forestry activities that fall outside those covered by the NES-PF are managed by the Auckland Unitary Plan.
- Forest quarrying: Prepare a management plan and lodge a proposed setback document and calculations.
- Earthworks and harvesting: Prepare a management plan.
- Afforestation: Lodge a proposed setback document and calculations along with a copy of the wilding tree risk calculation sheet and score.
The NES-PF notice allows us to request a copy of management plans when these are required. It is our policy to request management plans.
You will need to give these to us at least 15 working days before work starts.
Operators also need to advise us of material amendments to management plans to enable us to request a copy of the updated plan.
