Variation to provisions of the Large Lot Residential and Subdivision & Development Chapters

The variation amends rules in the Large Lot Residential Zone and the Subdivision and Development Chapter of the Queenstown Lakes Proposed District Plan. The variation seeks to make it easier to undertake anticipated subdivision within the Large Lot Residential A Zone, of sites that are 4000m² or greater, while maintaining an average area of 2,000m2 per site.

The variation also amends Policy to clarify that the requirement for colour controls applies only to the Large Lot Residential B Zone, located on Mt Iron in Wānaka.
