Proposed District Plan open for submissions

22 September 2019

New Plymouth District is changing and NPDC is preparing for that change with our Proposed District Plan.
Built on your feedback on our Draft District Plan, the Proposed District Plan is the  basis of our new District Plan, which will set out for the next decade what can be built and where and will help manage parts of the environment.
It aims to give certainty to property owners, business and industry while protecting the things our community values.
We’re now calling for formal feedback. You can have your say on the Proposed District Plan from 23 September to 22 November. 
We’ve made it easier than ever to see the proposed NPDC plan online here and make a submission.
You can also check it out at the Civic Centre or speak to a planner at a local library near you on these dates: (see graphic below)

  • Inglewood Library: 9am-3pm, 14 October.
  • Bell Block Library: 9am-3pm, 15 October.
  • Puke Ariki: 11am-5pm, 16 October.
  • Urenui Library: noon-4pm, 18 October.
  • Ōākura Library: noon-6pm, 23 October.
  • Puke Ariki: 9am-3.30pm, 24 October.
  • Waitara Library: 9am-3pm, 25 October.

The top four issues of the Proposed District Plan are a vibrant central city, planning for growth, managing industry, and caring for our ever-changing coastline. 
NPDC is on track to be the first council in New Zealand to publish a Digital District Plan, so you can easily find out what you can on your property.
