Plan Change 10

The purpose of Proposed Plan Change 10 is to review the Designations Section and Schedule within the District Plan, in particular reviewing the requirements for designations of the relevant Requiring Authorities.

Intent of Proposed Plan Change 10

Proposed Plan Change 10 can be summarised as:

  • A review of the District Plan's Designations Section (Section 24);
  • The rolling over of existing Designations in the District Plan pursuant to the Clause 4 process under the First Schedule of the Resource Management Act 1991; 
  • Updating the requirements of Requiring Authorities (as identified in the current District Plan) for public works, including modifications to existing designations or new notices of requirement.

Two new Notices of Requirement which include:

  1. Minister of Police, Police Purposes, 22 Connolly Place, Palmerston North.
  2. Palmerston North City Council, Road Widening, Featherston Street between Ngata Street and Taonui Street.

Significant existing Designations subject to modification include:

  1. Horizons Regional Council, Flood Protection Purposes, Citywide - amending extent of Designation.
  2. Airways Corporation NZ, Air Navigation Aids, Roberts Line - inclusion of Designation of Air and associated landuse controls.

Proposed Plan Change 10 can be summarised as:

This proposed Plan Change seeks to review the provision for Designations and the requirements of the relevant Requiring Authorities in Section 24: Designations of the Palmerston North City District Plan that relate to public works.  The review is necessary as Council has an obligation under the Resource Management Act 1991 to review provisions within a District Plan once they have been operative for ten years. Also, the review is necessary as the Council has an obligation to provide for the 'roll-over' of Designations within a proposed plan change under the Resource Management Act 1991.
