District Plan

The District Plan has been operative since 1 December 2002. District Plans, which are a legal requirement under the Resource Management Act, place controls on land use and subdivisions. They specify particular environmental outcomes that Council should aim for.

This document contains the District Plan's policies and rules. The accompanying document contains a series of planning maps. Hard copies of both documents can be purchased from the Council.
