Plan Change 55 District-wide Rules to the Manawatū District Plan - OPERATIVE IN PART

At its meeting on 26 July 2018 the Manawatū District Council (Council) approved and resolved to make parts of Plan Change 55 District-wide Rules operative, pursuant to clauses 17 (2) and 20 of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). The Council now gives notice that Plan Change 55 District-wide Rules to the Manawatū District Plan will become 'operative in part' on 16 August 2018.

Exclusions: The Manawatū District Plan has been annotated to identify those provisions of Plan Change 55 District-wide Rules which are excluded from becoming operative under clause 20 of the RMA; namely, those provisions that remain subject to Environment Court appeals.

Plan Change 55 introduces a new Chapter into the Manawatū District Plan bringing together all the information and provisions relating to Network Utilities, Transportation, Earthworks, Noise, Signage, Temporary Activities and Relocated Buildings. These provisions apply District-wide. Plan Change 55 amended the Manawatū District Plan, as follows:

  • Inserted a new Chapter 3 District-wide Rules into the District Plan with related objectives, polices and updated rules for Network Utilities (3A), Transport (3B), Noise (3C), Earthworks (3D), Signs (3E), Temporary Activities (3F) and Relocated Buildings (3G).
  • Changed Chapter 2 (Definitions) to reflect the new terms used in the Chapter and to reflect provisions in National Policy Statements and National Environmental Standards.
  • Deleted Chapter 1 of the operative District Plan which is no longer required as Plan Change 46 – Feilding Town Centre included a new introduction section for the District Plan.
  • Consequential changes to cross referencing throughout the District Plan and some deletions as a result of the new proposed chapter.
