The Landscape Guidelines are a set of guidance tools for preparing landscape plans as part of a subdivision or land use consent application. They are non-statutory and aim to encourage best practice approaches to landscape planning associated with consent applications.

A landscape assessment practice note has been prepared to help you meet the District Plan requirements. This note provides guidance on what landscape information should be provided as part of any resource consent application, and how such information is assessed by the planning staff. To download the practice note, follow the link below.
