Minimum carpark rules to be deleted from District Plan

Friday December 11 2020

We're updating our District Plan to remove minimum car parking requirements, other than for accessible carparks.

The change is prompted by the government's new National Policy Statement on Urban Development.

The policy is intended to remove "overly restrictive barriers to development".

This particular change will allow developments to have smaller footprints.

Local authorities have until February 2022 to implement the change.
