Notice of removal of minimum parking requirements from the Operative Kapiti Coast District Plan 2021
On 17 February 2022, and in accordance with Policy 11 and clause 3.38 of the National Policy Statement for Urban Development 2020 (NPS-UD), the Kapiti Coast District Council amended the District Plan to remove all objectives, policies, rules, or assessment criteria that have the effect of requiring a minimum number of car parks to be provided for any development, land use, or activity.
The parking design standards and minimum loading space requirements in the District Plan are not impacted by the NPS-UD and remain applicable to new development proposals that choose to provide on-site car parking.
As required under Section 55 of the Resource Management Act 1991, these amendments to the District Plan were made without using a Schedule 1 process (the typical public submission process for plan changes).
These amendments to the Operative Kapiti Coast District Plan 2021 may be inspected on the Council’s website at District Plan.
The Operative Kapiti Coast District Plan 2021 is available on the Council’s website at Operative District Plan 2021.
