Status of the District Plan

Once a District Plan has no submissions or Environment Court appeals against all or a part of the Plan it can be formally made operative.

The Queenstown Lakes District Council started making parts of the District Plan operative in 2003.  All appeals have now been resolved and the Plan became operative in 2009.

Below is the list of all of the Operative Decisions made by the Environment Court and the Plan Changes made operative by Council (since the 2005 RMA Amendment Act the Council has the power to make parts of the Plan operative without applying to the Environment Court).
