District Plan Proposed – Jan 2017

The Proposed District Plan and the related planning and hazard information maps are available on this page, as is a link to the appeals, decisions and related information on the Review Process.

Decisions on the Proposed District Plan were released in October 2016. Sixteen appeals were lodged against the decisions. These were processed through the legal Environment Court process, and have all been resolved.

This Appeals Version of the Proposed District Plan now incorporates all of the Council’s decisions on the submissions to the Plan and changes made through the appeal process.

All provisions are to be treated as operative, and the corresponding provisions of the Operative District Plan are therefore treated as inoperative. There is administrative work and a regulatory process to be followed by the Council before the Proposed District Plan can officially be referred to as the Operative District Plan.

Environment Court Consent Notices relating to the appeals are available on the District Plan Appeals page.

You will be responsible for checking this page to make sure you have the most up-to-date provisions of the plan.

Note: Information from the District Planning and Hazard Information maps can now be viewed on the Invercargill Maps page.
