Resource consents for combustion discharges

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Nelson City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Alex Harris to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Nelson City Council,

The Nelson City Council controls discharges of contaminants from large-scale fuel burning appliances (> 70 kW) under Rules AQr.28 - AQr.32 of the Nelson Air Quality Plan. Small-scale combustion and the use of a backup generator are generally permitted activities, provided conditions (including on heat or power output) are complied with - the exception being light or heavy fuel oil, which is a controlled activity. Larger-scale combustion is generally a discretionary or restricted discretionary activity, requiring a resource consent. I would like to request the following information under the LGOIMA:

* a list of all the resource consents in force for discharges from large-scale fuel burning appliances under Rules AQr.28 - AQr.32 of the Nelson Air Quality Plan. For each consent I would like the date of issue, date of expiry, the fuel source for the combustion, and the power in kW or MW (if known) or maximum combustion rate (e.g. in tonnes per hour, if known).

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
