Documents included by Reference in the Proposed District Plan

Status: Open
Consultation Period: 4 March to 4 April 2019

We’re reviewing NPDC’s District Plan, which will determine what can be built and where, and help manage parts of the natural environment. We’ll be asking you to have your say on the Proposed District Plan after it’s notified in mid-2019.

First we must ask for your feedback on the documents that we intend to include by reference. These are documents that provide technical standards or recommended practices that will help with implementing the Proposed District Plan provisions. 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.

We want to hear your comments on the technical documents that we intend to incorporate by reference. Please get us your feedback by 5pm on Thursday 4 April 2019 via our online survey click here.
