NOTE: All provisions of the Operative District Plan have now been superseded by the Proposed District Plan. Please refer to the Proposed District Plan for the current planning Objectives, Policies and Rules for the Invercargill City District.
Council carried out a full review of the Operative District Plan. The Proposed Invercargill City District Plan has been through the submission and hearings process, with decisions released in October 2016. Sixteen appeals were received on the decisions to the Proposed District Plan. All appeals have now been resolved and the provisions of the Proposed District Plan are now to be treated as operative, meaning that the corresponding provisions in the Operative District Plan have essentially been superseded.
