Guides and forms related to planning and resource management in are available here.
Please note the guides below relate only to the provisions of the Proposed District Plan, which came in to effect on 29 October 2016. The Proposed District Plan is currently subject to appeal and so the provisions may yet change. It also means that until such time as all appeals are resolved and the Proposed District Plan is beyond challenge, there will be provisions in the Operative District Plan that still have effect and that any land use and subdivision developments will need to take into consideration alongside the provisions of the Proposed District Plan.
