District Plan 2004

District Plan 2004

The Council is required to have a District Plan under the Resource Management Act 1991. The main purpose of the District Plan is to ensure that land use and subdivision in the South Taranaki District are sustainably managed. The District Plan controls the way land is used, developed, protected and subdivided in the district.

The Council is currently reviewing the existing 2004 District Plan and has notified a new Proposed District Plan (2015). The existing District Plan will continue to apply until the new District Plan is completed. You may need to refer to both the existing 2004 District Plan and new Proposed District Plan for some activities and development. (see note below).

 

Proposed District Plan: Legal Effect

Note: Some of the Proposed District Plan rules already apply. Certain types of rules have immediate legal effect from the date of notification of the Proposed District Plan (15 August 2015). It is important to check what rules apply before carrying out works on your property. Further details about these rules can be found on the information sheet here: Rules that have legal effect
