Summary of the PC 1, PC 8 and NES changes that are coming up

Please see attached below a summary of the PC1, PC8 and NES changes that are coming up. I expect that the various provisions are likely to have a potentially significant impact. Particularly the time frames for upgrades, term of discharge consents (which everyone spreading effluent will need to obtain) and possibly the controls around winter grazing, waterway setbacks etc. Perhaps more concerning are the potential inconsistencies and confusion between the two frameworks.
