District Plan

The District Plan is the primary document that manages land use and development within Palmerston North. It contains rules that may affect you if you're preparing a land use proposal or development. 

Tell us what you think about our plans for housing and city growth

We're asking your views as part of consultation on our Long-Term Plan 2024-34, which is open for feedback until 9 May.

Development at Aokautere, Ashhurst and Kākātangiata is subject to Council seeking external funding for new infrastructure required to service growth in these areas.

We encourage you to read about what we're proposing and have your say.
