We’ll be asking you to have your say on NPDC’s Proposed District Plan in mid-2019. The Proposed Plan will determine what can be built and where, and help manage parts of the natural environment.
We have almost finished working through the huge amount of feedback we received on the Draft District Plan (October 2016) and Draft Digital District Plan (February 2018). We’ll keep meeting with interested groups as we finalise our approach and fine tune the provisions in the plan.
Before we notify the Proposed District Plan we must ask for your feedback on the documents we intend to incorporate in the Plan by reference. These documents provide technical standards or recommended practices that help with implementing the Proposed District Plan provisions, but they’re often too large to be included in the plan text.
We want to know what you think about the documents that we intend to incorporate by reference. Of particular note is the Draft Code of Practice for Land Development and Subdivision Infrastructure Standard (NSZ 4404: 2010 with local amendments). The Code outlines clear standards of infrastructure design and construction that are applied through the Proposed District Plan. It has recently been changed.
You can see a full list of the key documents and download the submission form on the Proposed District Plan Page.
Let us know what you think by getting your feedback to us by 5pm on 4 April 2019.
