What is being reviewed?


A: Basically, we have to review everything that hasn't been changed since 2002 - when the District Plan came into force.

The Review must also include anything required to be reviewed by other legislation or mandatory RMA documents including: National Policy Statements, National Environmental Standards, Regional Policy Statement and RMA Amendments.

There is a lot in our existing District Plan that works well but there are some areas where we need to modify things to take into account emerging issues, e.g., renewable energy and urban design.
