Horowhenua District Council recently sought feedback on Proposed Plan Change 1 which proposes the extension of the historic heritage buildings, structures and sites that are currently listed in Schedule 2 of the District Plan and Proposed Plan Change 2 which focuses on amending a limited number of provisions specifically relating to residential development.
What is a plan change?
A plan change is when Council proposes to make changes to the provisions or zones in its District Plan. The District Plan is the document which outlines what people can do with their land in the district and what activities require Council approval.
Council is required to follow a formal process to undertake a plan change and this involves publicly notifying the proposed changes to the District Plan to give the community the opportunity to have their say on what's proposed.
Submissions on Proposed Plan Change 1 and/or Proposed Plan Change 2 closed on 5 December 2017. Documents are available for viewing under 'Related Information'.
