The District Plan guides land use and development across our district. It sets out what activities you can do as of right, what activities you need resource consent for, and how certain activities may be carried out. It covers things like residential development; noise; location and height of buildings; activities on the surfaces of rivers and lakes; and protection of indigenous vegetation.Open for submissions Your zone Contact us
