Melissa McGrath – Manager, District Plan, Whangarei District Council.
Council has proposed plan changes 82 A & B, 88 A-J, 109 115, 136, 143, 144, 145, 147 & 148 to the Whangrei District Plan.
This package includes rezoning of urban and open space areas and the introduction of new district wide chapters.
The hearings have closed as of 20 March 2020.
This package is proposed as part of the rolling review of the Whangarei District Plan and can be broken down into three major sections:
Proposed Urban Plan Changes
Rezoning is proposed throughout the Urban Area, this includes new Living and Business Zones as well as special purpose zones and precincts.
Proposed District Wide Plan Changes
This package includes proposals for chapters containing provisions that apply to the district as a whole. Subdivision, strategic direction, transport, earthworks, signs, lighting and a three waters management chapters are included.
Proposed Plan Change 115 - Green Space Zones
This plan change proposes new zones with associated objectives, policies and provisions:
PC115 Conservation Zone, Open Space Zone and Sport and Active Recreation Zone.
Note: No resolution has been included to identify rules with either early or delayed legal effect. In the majority of cases this will mean that rules do not have legal effect prior to a Decision in terms of Clause 10(4) of Schedule One to the Resource Management Act 1991.
However, legal effect of all proposed provisions should be evaluated under the provisions of the Resource Management Act 1991.
