Quick Link to Decision dated 28 June 2013

The Palmerston North City Council received a Private Plan Change 
Request to the Palmerston North City District Plan.  The Plan Change seeks to amend the specific landscape provisions at the southern end of Pacific Drive. More specifically the change relates to the land zoned residential on the western side of Varsity Heights Drive. The change has
been put forward in order to make provision for further development of
the Residential Zone land in that area.

Proposed Plan Change A can be summarised as:

Amending the existing Landscape Protection Areas and associated setback and height rules for buildings and structures.

Replace the current landscape provisions with one 10 metre setback line for
residential buildings and structures, including a co-ordinate schedule
for the precise location of the setback line.

Amend the relevant objective and policy to make reference to residential buildings and remove reference to height of buildings adjacent to the escarpment.
