Frost Protection Fans:

Changes are proposed to better provide for the operation of frost fans in rural areas, while still managing potential effects on surrounding neighbours. An option being considered is to allow frost fans without the need for resource consent if certain performance standards are met. Minor edits are also being proposed to make the rules easier to use.
