have your say

​thank you!

You told us your vision for the future of development in the Waitaki District

Public consultation on the District Plan Review Discussion Document closed on 16 August 2019.


Nominations for the Heritage buildings and sites as well as Notable trees nominations are now closed.

The Discussion document was a first look at what may be in the new District Plan. There were no maps or detailed rules because we’re still working on those. It looked at the big picture and asked you: Are we on the RIGHT TRACK? Are these the key issues? Are we dealing with them the right way?

As well as feedback gathered at our engagement events, we had 34 responses to our letterboxed Discussion Document summary flyer, 33 Individual feedback forms and emails, 28 Agency responses, 59 responses to our District Plan Review online survey and 151 responses to our Housing Amenity and Preference survey. We have been analysing your feedback and are using it to help draft the new District Plan for Waitaki. You can read the District Plan Review Engagement Summary Report here.
