District Plan review
When we started the District Plan Review we had intended to review the entire District Plan, as much of the plan is now 10 years old or older. However, at the moment there is a lot of uncertainty about what our future planning framework will look like. The Government is currently reforming the Resource Management Act 1991 into the Natural and Build Environment Act (NBEA). You can find out more about how we are managing the review at the link below.
