The District Plan sets out the policies and rules council uses to manage the use of land in the district.
The District Plan is available as an electronic map-based, searchable tool, combining a traditional plan document with mapping capabilities and user-friendly features.
To find the District Plan provisions that apply to your property, simply go to our e-District Plan and type in your address in the search field.
District Plan review
The Resource Management Act 1991 requires councils to prepare a District Plan and review the different parts at least every 10 years. Most of the District Plan is now due for a review so rather than do that in pieces we have decided to look at it all together. Taking this integrated approach will allow us to make sure that the District Plan works better.
