landowner information

Waitaki District Council is starting early engagement around the District Plan Review.

We want to make sure that landowners are aware of any changes to the status of their land. This early engagement is about starting a two-way conversation with those landowners who manage important values in the district about the significance of the District Plan, what the review process is, and how they can contribute.


If you’re visiting this page, you’re probably a landowner that has received a letter from Council about the District Plan Review along with maps showing where we think important values occur on your property.


Follow the links below to find more detailed information about the overlays that have been used to map those values and areas, as well as some background information about how we got to where we are today.

If you are looking to undertake work or activities on your property, please check out our current district plan - at www.waitaki.govt.nz

Council has a legal obligation to protect habitat with important biodiversity values and it’s important that we strike the balance between protecting livelihoods and looking after our indigenous vegetation.
