The District Plan is about sustainable land use, environmental protection and enabling growth in the most suitable places.
It is a balancing act. Its purpose is to protect our environment, historic places and cultural taonga for future generations (through sustainable management of our resources) while supporting our communities to live and grow.
This District Plan looks 30 years ahead. It is updated every 10 years to make sure its rules strike the right balance. We released a Draft District Plan in March 2021.
