How to use the Proposed District Plan Decisions Table
The recommendations are required by the Resource Management Act 1991 to 'accept', 'accept in part' or 'reject' each point of submission. In cases where the changes requested by submissions are accepted or accepted in part, there is a corresponding change to the Proposed District Plan as a result of the recommendation.
The net result of all the submissions that have been accepted or accepted in part, is a new version called the 'KCDC Proposed District Plan Decisions Version'.
This new version of the plan is displayed in two ways in the table as below:
- Column 1 shows the Proposed District Plan as amended by Decisions on Submissions by chapter, without highlighting the changes (clean copy) to the Proposed Plan.
- Column 2 shows the Proposed District Plan as amended by Decisions on Submissions by chapter and highlights all the tracked changes.
- Column 3 contains the Panel Recommendation Reports.
The tracked change version shown in Column 2 also shows the differences between the Plan as Notified (in Nov 2012) and the Proposed District Plan Decisions Version. Words that were added to the Proposed District Plan are underlined and words that were removed are shown as a strikethrough.
Only chapters 3,5,6 and 7 of the Proposed District Plan have appendices, which are listed below the Decisions table.
There is no Freight Hierarchy Map in the Proposed District Plan Decisions Version.
