Why review the District Plan?
District Plans must be reviewed and updated every 10 years. They must also give effect to National and Regional direction. The current District Plan is out of sync with the national and regional direction and no longer responds to the issues being faced by the district. In January 2016, we launched a community engagement project called Lets Plan Together as the first step of this process.
The diagram on the right shows what other influences we must consider as we develop the new plan. Links to these legislative documents are listed below.
