Proposed Plan Change 5 focused on rezoning an area of land to the east of the existing Waitārere Beach settlement. The area covers over 100ha and focused on future residential and commercial development in the Growth Area.
Proposed Plan Change 5 Withdrawn
At its meeting on 13 December 2023, Council resolved to withdraw Proposed Plan Change 5.
The plan change was withdrawn for a number of reasons, including delays in the process and the need to understand the effect of groundwater changes that were observed in 2022 and the management of the resulting overland stormwater flows across the settlement.
Withdrawal of the Proposed Plan Change means that existing Operative District Plan provisions remain place.
Once the above issues are resolved, Council can revisit the plans for Waitārere Beach and initiate another plan change process, utilising the work done so far.
Although PPC5 has been withdrawn, the documents remain available for viewing below.
