Proposed District Plan Decisions Version 2017


Note: We are currently operating under two District Plans. At this time both the Operative District Plan (ODP) and the Proposed District Plan (PDP) Appeals version 2018 have legal effect.

The ODP will continue to have legal effect where any corresponding objectives, policies and provisions in the PDP have been appealed. As appeals are resolved, the ODP provisions will fall away and the PDP will be relied on.

While we still have both an ODP and a PDP it is necessary to comply with both Plans. However, rules in the PDP that are not subject to appeals must be treated as operative, and the corresponding ODP rules fall away.

Any rules in the PDP which cannot be treated as operative still have legal effect and are afforded 'weighting' on a case by case basis, depending on the nature and extent of the appeal. 


Proposed District Plan Decisions Version 2017

On 22 November 2017, the Council publicly notified the Decisions version of the Proposed Plan.

This replaced the Proposed District Plan 29 November 2012 Notified version.

The table below shows the Proposed District Plan 2012 as amended by Decisions (9 November 2017) and the Recommendation Reports for the Plan and its submissions.
