The Proposed District Plan is scheduled to be finalised in mid-2019. As part of a statutory process it will be publically notified in accordance with the Resource Management Act 1991.
The Proposed District Plan will be aligned with the Government’s new National Planning Standards, which are scheduled for release in April 2019. It will help shape what the district will become, determining what can be built and where. It will also will help manage some parts of the natural environment.
Prior to formal notification of the Proposed District Plan, the first stage of statutory consultation is to seek feedback on the list of technical documents that we intend to incorporate by reference in the Proposed Plan. The following documents provide technical standards or recommended practices which will assist with implementing the Proposed District Plan provisions. Consultation on the documents we intend to incorporate by reference closes at 5pm Thursday 4 April 2019.
Code of Practice for Land Development and Subdivision Infrastructure (NZS4404: with local amendments)
A key change we’ve made is to the Land Development and Subdivision Infrastructure Standard. This document outlines standards of infrastructure design and construction that are applied through the Proposed District Plan.
