Proposed District Plan closes this week


Proposed District Plan closes this week - check for impacts around building and resource consent applications

An overlap period while our Operative District Plan and Proposed District Plan merges, may have an effect on some of Council's planning checks around building and resource consent applications.

Submissions to our Proposed District Plan close at 5pm this Friday 14 March. From that date there'll be up to a fortnight where staff continues working out whether any differences between the current Operative District Plan and the Proposed District Plan has an impact on any planning checks for any building and resource consent applications.

In some cases, the merge of the current Operative District Plan and the Proposed Plan may see changes in whether a particular activity or building requires a resource consent or not, or what sort of information Council Planning staff may require as part of the Building Consent

"Right now our staff are looking at both Plans to see what changes could affect any building or resource consent applications," says Council District Plan Manager Leigh Robcke. "However we won't get a clear direction until all the submissions for the Proposed District Plan are in."

Council staff will be in touch with anyone whose building or resource consent application may be affected.

"We want to make this transition process as smooth as possible for our customers during this period," says Mr Robcke.

"We're also suggesting if you have just submitted a resource or building consent, or thinking about any sort of construction in the next 6-12 months, get in touch with us and we can talk it over," says Mr Robcke.

We have a Duty Planner service running Monday through to Friday from 10am-midday and then 1pm - 3pm. Just call our customer services team on 07 868 0200 and ask to be put through to the Duty Planner. You can also make appointments to talk to one of our planning team in Thames, Whangamata and Whitianga.

If you want to make a submission to our Proposed District Plan you still have until Friday. Go towww.tcdc.govt.nz/dpr to read the Proposed Plan, find out some of the changes we're proposing and information on how to make a submission.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
