Affected Part of District Plan:

Chapter 85 - Designations

Contact Person:

Sarah Brownie – Planner, District Plan Department, Whangarei District Council

Summary:

​PC 134 forms part of Council’s rolling review of the District Plan and proposes to update Chapter 85 -  Designations.

 

Plan Change 134 Specifies proposed changes to the operative Whangarei District Plan text and maps for designations.  In summary, these changes include:

  • The carry over and retention of existing designations within the operative Whangarei District Plan which have not lapsed
  • Review of existing designations within the Planning Maps
  • Two new notices of requirement
  • Update of chapter format and consequential changes

What is a Designation:

Land, water, subsoil or airspace required for infrastructure or public works can be identified and provided for using an enabling method expressly prescribed in the Resource Management Act 1991 called designation.

A designation:

  • Enables the identification and use of land required for a public work or for network utility infrastructure 
  • Can only be sought by an approved requiring authority
  • Restricts the use of land, water, subsoil, or airspace where this is necessary for the safe or efficient functioning or operation of a specified public works or network utility infrastructure
  • Requires written approval of the requiring authority responsible for the designation before a third party can undertake an activity within the land designated
  • Enables activities to be undertaken without resource consent that may have otherwise required a resource consent in the underlying zone provided the activities are in accordance with the designation

Requiring authorities include ministers of the Crown, local authorities and approved network operators. A public work or project could include a school, police station, road, park, or a network utility (such as electricity transmission lines, airports and associated airspace, public water supply damns and treatment facilities, sewage reticulation and treatment facilities).
