Operative District Plan

The District Plan outlines what you can do with your land in the city and whether or not you 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. It's a living document that is regularly reviewed and updated.

Please contact Council's regulatory planners to confirm the status of provisions as they apply to your development or activity.
