9A.1.1.1  Policy - Location of Hazardous Facilities

By ensuring that facilities involving the manufacture, storage, use, disposal and transportation of hazardous substances are located so the risk to the wider environment is prevented or mitigated.

9A.1.1.4 Policy - Storage and Use of Hazardous Substances

By ensuring that the storage or use of hazardous substances does not result in cumulative adverse effects, particularly through increased risk to the natural or physical environment, or to the safety, health or wellbeing of people and communities. 

9A.1.1.5 Policy - Management of Hazardous Substances within Height Area 1 at the Port of Tauranga

By ensuring that transitional storage of hazardous substances within the Port Operational Area of the Port Industry Zone is managed to prevent or mitigate adverse environmental effects and/or risks to human health, property and/or the receiving environment, while recognising the complexity of port operations.
