de Joux Consulting have developed experience in water resource management issues, and have been involved in the preparation of submissions and consultation process for a number of Regional Plans and the Rangitata River Water Conservation Order. 




  • Preparation of submissions for resource consent applications

  • Preparation of submissions for Regional Plans and Conservation Orders

  • Presentation of submissions at regional council or Environment Court hearings


Regional Plan submissions

de Joux Consulting were directly involved in the consultation and preparation of submissions for the Opihi River Regional Plan, and provided consultancy services on water management issues for the Timaru District Council and for Opuha Water Limited.  We have prepared submissions on behalf of clients in respect to the Environment Canterbury Proposed Natural Resources Regional Plan (PNRRP)

Resource consent submissions and negotiations

We have been involved in numerous submissions in respect of resource consent applications, most of which have been resolved through negotiation and mitigation.  Some consent applications inevitably cannot be resolved through consultation and progress to the Environment Court for resolution.  de Joux Consulting has represented a number of clients for resource consents at the Environment Court.

Preparation and Presentation of technical information at Special Tribunals or the Environment Court

We have recently been involved in the preparation of technical evidence on hydrological and water management and have appeared in the role of "expert witness" to hearings on the Rangitata Conservation Order (Environment Court), and the Waitaki Catchment Water Allocation Regional Plan (Waitaki Catchment Water Allocation Board)
