District Planning


The Manawatu District Council's planning team ensures that development of the natural and built environment is undertaken in a sustainable manner.

Planning is responsible for preparing Council's environmental plans and strategies.  These documents ensure that Council looks after the natural and built environment and assists in achieving the outcomes established with the Long Term Plan and the statutory requirements set out in the  Resource Management Act 1991www_Globe.jpg

Note: Boundary Change Area : Land Previously Under The Jurisdiction of Manawatu District Council

The Manawatu District Plan continues to apply to the land affected by the boundary adjustment with the Manawatu District Council until such time as a District Plan Change is promoted to incorporate the land into the Palmerston North City District Plan. It is anticipated that a District Plan Change to achieve this will be promoted by Palmerston North City Council in 2013.
