Notice of insertion of housing bottom lines to the Operative Kapiti Coast District Plan 2021
The Kāpiti Coast District Council has amended the Operative Kapiti Coast District Plan 2021 (the District Plan) to give effect to Clauses 3.6(2)(b)(i) and (ii) of the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020.
The amendments incorporate “housing bottom lines” into the District Plan, which represent the additional development capacity over the short-medium (2021-2031) and long term (2031-2051) that must be enabled to meet expected housing demand in the Kāpiti district. The housing bottom lines are drawn from the Council’s 2022 housing capacity update of the Housing and Business Development Capacity Assessment, which is available at https://wrlc.org.nz/project/regional-housing-business-development-capacity-assessment-2022.
Clause 3.6(4) of the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 requires the housing bottom lines to be inserted into the District Plan without using a process in Schedule 1 of the RMA (this means submissions cannot be made on these amendments).
The amendments are effective from 19 July 2022.
The District Plan can be viewed on the Council’s website.
The amendments have been made under section 55(2) and (2A)(a) of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). This notice has been published in accordance with section 55(2A)(b) of the RMA. The date of this notice is 21 July 2022.
