Toll-free number for One Plan information

12:38 pm on 12 September 2012

Manawatu-Rangitikei Regional Council has set up a toll-free number for farmers wanting to know what the Council's One Plan could mean for them.

The plan which the Environment Court endorsed last week, will result in existing land use on some properties and conversions to intensive land use, becoming controlled activities for which a consent is needed.

Council Chairman Bruce Gordon said there has been a lot of mis-information about the plan, from Federated Farmers.

He said he and at least four others on the council are farmers and they were not about to put people out of business.
