where are we now?

The Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) requires all councils to start a review of their District Plan 10 years after it was made operative. The RMA requires the District Plan to sustainably manage the natural and physical resources of the District to meet the needs of current and future generations and to provide for their social, economic and cultural well-being and for their health and safety.

Reviewing the District Plan involves looking at the Plan we’ve got now. Does it need changing? Are there new issues to deal with? Or new rules from parliament we have to put in our Plan? The answer is, YES, there are new issues to look at and new rules and regulations to obey.

Thank you! We had lots of responses to the District Plan Review Discussion document feedback form and survey plus many others via email, post and in our public engagement meetings. We have been analysing your feedback and we are using it to help draft the new District Plan for Waitaki. We will be releasing the draft District Plan in 2021 for another round of public consultation and a chance for you to have your say.
