Summary
Policy needs caveats against conversion of non-residential buildings in isolated rural locations.
Comment

Council feels strongly that this policy needs the addition of caveats against the conversion of existing non-residential buildings in isolated rural locations to create additional visitor accommodation.  This is for the same reasons as Council strongly objects to proposed new policy 9, i.e. adding more people, activity and vehicles in isolated rural locations has negative environmental impacts that simply cannot be adequately mitigated or balanced by other benefits.

Proposed Change Add explicit caveats against the conversion of existing non-residential buildings in isolated rural locations to create additional visitor accommodation.
