What we are proposing
We are proposing a Draft District Plan that will help us protect the Far North’s outstanding landscapes and features and significant natural areas. We now understand more about people at risk from natural hazards, and we propose to better manage activities in these vulnerable locations.
We know more about the growth pressures in the district, and the state of our assets. This will help us to integrate land use with infrastructure plans. It means we can ensure suitably-zoned and serviced land is available for economic development.
We have heard from our communities that they are concerned about inappropriate use of the districts highly versatile soils, so we have created some new provisions to address this.
Our proposed integrated planning approach addresses the nine Significant Resource Management Issues (SRMIs) you helped us identify in 2016. These are listed below, click on the icon to find out more.
