Insertion of housing bottom lines
The Operative Kapiti Coast District Plan 2021 was amended on 19 July 2022 to incorporate “housing bottom lines”.
This change is required by the National Policy Statement on Urban Development (commonly referred to as NPS-UD). The housing bottom lines represent the additional housing development capacity to be enabled by the District Plan over the short-medium (2021-2031) and long term (2031-2051).
The NPS-UD requires the housing bottom lines to be inserted into the District Plan as soon as practicable after a Housing and Business Development Capacity Assessment is made publicly available, and without following a public consultation process.
The housing bottom lines are drawn from the Council’s May 2022 housing capacity update of the Housing and Business Development Capacity Assessment.
