Requiring Authority Decisions

On 3 May 2018 Queenstown Lakes District Council made decisions on stage 1 of the review of the District Plan. This included recommendations on Designations (Chapter 37 of the Proposed District Plan). A designation is a ‘spot zoning’ over a site or area that authorises a Requiring Authority’s work and activity on that site and controls the activities of third parties on land affected by a designation. A requiring authority includes Ministers of the Crown, local authorities and network utility operators approved as requiring authorities under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).

Following the issue of these recommendations to Requiring Authorities they notified Council with their decisions on whether they accept or reject the recommendations.  Those decisions are provided below.
