Proposed District Plan unanimously adopted by KCDC

Proposed District Plan unanimously adopted by Kāpiti Coast District Council today

Kāpiti Coast District Council has today signed-off the long awaited Proposed District Plan (PDP).

After considered debate, Council unanimously voted to adopt the recommendations of the independent hearing panel around the PDP, which is regarded as the standing rule book for development in our community.

Mayor K Gurunathan is pleased that the PDP was approved and acknowledges the contribution submitters and council staff put into helping bring this PDP through to its final stages.

“The new PDP provides for the on-going growth and development of our district over the next 10 years.

“One of the key elements of the PDP is ensuring that both our rural and urban communities flourish while making sure that the Kāpiti Coast’s unique and natural character continue to thrive.”

The Council’s decision will be publicly notified shortly and this will allow for any appeals to the Environment Court.
