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.
How to use this plan
Chapter 01 - Introduction includes a guide on how to use the plan and determine if a resource consent is required. Staff can also provide advice on the matter. Details on how to contact them is at the bottom of this page.
