District Plan Review - Proposed District Plan
Council formally commenced a review of the District Plan in April 2014. The review sets out to provide a more accessible and transparent plan that provides more certainty to property owners and a clear strategic direction for the district as well as additional scope for intensification in suitable locations.
Stage 1 of the review was notified in August 2015 with a proposed plan containing 33 key chapters including the residential, rural and commercial zones. Decisions on the matters heard were notified on 7 May 2018 and these decisions are now under appeal.
Full details of appeals to Stage 1, including the mediation schedule, can be viewed here.

Stage 2 of the review was notified in November 2017. This stage is made up of six topics: Transport, Earthworks, Signs, Visitor Accommodation, Wakatipu Basin Land-use and Open Space and Recreation. Decisions on the matters heard were notified on 21 March 2019.
