King Salmon is no longer seeking automatic right of renewal in its application to expand salmon farming in the Marlborough Sounds.

The company's application has been changed so that, if successful, after 35 years it will need to apply again for the right to farm for another 35 years.

Instead of automatic renewal, the right will have to be approved by the Marlborough District Council.

The change involves moving from a controlled to a discretionary activity.

King Salmon chief executive Grant Rosewarne said it was a response to public submissions.
