District Plan

The District Plan outlines what people can do with their land in the city and whether or not they require Council approval.

In statutory terms the role of the District Plan is defined as controlling the effects of the use, development and protection of land within the context of promoting sustainable management. Put simply, the District Plan sets the scene in terms of what people can  do with their land in the City and whether or not they require Council approval.
