6.1.19 Implementation Methods - Other Activities Discretionary Activity Rule – Asphalt Plants

The discharge of contaminants into air from fixed or mobile asphalt plants is a discretionary activity (requiring resource consent).

Advisory Note:

  • Information requirements to enable the assessment of any application under this Rule are as set out in Section In addition, assessment shall also take into account the matters identified in the policies in Section 6.1.3.

Explanation and Principal Reasons for Adopting Method
Rule is included because Waikato Regional Council recognises that asphalt manufacturing plants have the potential to release significant quantities of particulate matter, steam and odour. A discretionary activity rule is needed specifically for discharge of contaminants to air from asphalt plants because this Rule encompasses both fixed and mobile sources. This provides the ability to assess these effects relative to the receiving environment on a casebycase basis.
