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.
Note to Plan Users: please check Appendix 1 of the Plan Change 15A-H decision document for provisions that:
- must be treated as operative pursuant to Section 86F of the Resource Management Act 1991; or
- have legal effect but are not considered operative because they have been appealed.
Please contact Council’s regulatory planners on 06 356 8199 to confirm the status of PC15A-H provisions as they apply to your development or activity.
