District Plan

The District Plan outlines what people can do with their land in the city and whether or not they 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. Put simply, the District Plan sets the scene in terms of what people can  do with their land in the City and whether or not they require Council approval.

Operative District Plan

The District Plan is currently under review in a project called Shaping Our City. Some sections of the District Plan:

  • must be treated as operative pursuant to Section 86F of the Resource Management Act 1991; or
  • have legal effect but are not considered operative because they have been appealed.

This applies to the following plan changes:

Please contact Council’s regulatory planners on 06 356 8199 to confirm the status of provisions as they apply to your development or activity.
