Proposed District Plan hearings starting in September

Proposed District Plan hearings starting in September


Hearings on our Proposed District Plan will begin on Tuesday 16 September.

At its first meeting our Hearings Panel is expected to sit for three days, and focus on submissions relating to the whole of the Plan, forestry, transport, festivals and events, airfield height and noise.

Hearings are expected to go through until the end of March 2015.

A large number of submitters, individuals and organisations, have indicated they want to speak to their submission at a hearing. Submitters will be advised when hearings are being held that relate to matters they submitted on.

The Proposed District Plan was publicly notified on 13 December 2013 with the submission period running until 14 March 2014. During the submission period 1,236 submissions were received, covering around 7,500 submission points.

The "summary of decisions" sought in the submissions was then notified and further submissions were called for.

The further submission period closed on 16 June 2014 resulting in 286 further submissions, covering 2,662 further submission points.

The District Plan Hearings Panel is made up of one elected councillor (Sandra Goudie) and two external commissioners (Mark Farnsworth and Ian Munro). To find out more about the Hearings Panel click here.


Six submissions publicly notified for further submissions

The original "summary of decisions" contained some omissions so there are six submissions, which are now being re-notified for further submissions.

The submission period on these six submissions opens on Friday 25 July and closes 5pm 8 August.

Anyone can make a further submission on these submissions. A copy of the submissions, the summary of the decisions requested and the further submission form are on our website here All of this information is also available from our Council offices.
