Plan Change 82 A & B, 88 A-J, 109, 115, 136, 143, 144, 145, 147 & 148 : District Plan Changes: Urban and Services

This page contains an overview of the draft Urban and Services Plan Change: 82 A & B, 88 A-J, 109, 115, 136, 143, 144, 145, 147 & 148
Updated: 6/12/2019 2:45 p.m.

Affected Part of District Plan:

Large sections of the Operative plan including all urban areas (e.g. Living and Business Environments), all Open Space Environments and provisions relating to a number of different topics are affected by these proposed changes.

Contact Person:

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.



  As at 25 November the hearings are now open.

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.


How to learn more:

This is a large Package of Plan Changes which will effect a large number of people in our district, it is important that you are able to understand how you will be effected so that you can consider if you would like to make a submission.

With over 3,000 pages of provisions and technical reports available for these Plan Changes it's tough to know where to start. In order to help out we've prepared a separate website which includes interactive mapping and summaries of the proposed Plan Changes.
