Proposed Opotiki District Plan

Opotiki District Council recently released its Proposed District Plan for public comment.

Your Community's District Plan

The District Plan applies to all land across our District, regardless of what type of title it is held under. Because of this, Council has taken a practical​ approach to reviewing the Operative Plan.  We want to make the plan clear, concise, easy to interpret and most of all user friendly. 

A key objective of the project is to develop a plan that is representative of our people, our aspirations, our goals and our environment. ​

What is the District Plan?

Every council must have a district plan under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).  The District Plan controls the way we use, subdivide and develop land in the district​.  It identifies where activities can take place, what land can be developed and what features should be protected. ​​
