On the road in the Waikato – the District Plan review
Waikato district is a vast and unique area. From beaches to ranges, expressways to gravel roads, we’re distinctive from top to bottom!
To protect the uniqueness of our district we have a District Plan that guides the way land is used, developed and subdivided. This means we can manage undesirable effects on our district’s identity.
There are a variety of ways the District Plan can affect you:
• If you own or rent property in Waikato district, the District Plan regulates what type of activities you can do on that land. This includes how much noise you can make on your property, whether you can operate a business and where buildings can be located.
• The District Plan guides aspects of building design and regulates subdivision.
• It also restricts what can or can’t occur on other properties in your neighbourhood.
It’s these rules and many more that we want to chat with you about as we take a road trip around our district and review our District Plan.
Tony Whittaker, General Manager Strategy and Support explains “The District Plan review is about revisiting all existing provisions and seeing if they’re still working effectively. It’s not quite starting from scratch, but it’s a great opportunity to chat with the community about their concerns and reconsider our approach to particular issues.”
From June we’re making pit stops throughout the district and holding a series of drop-in sessions where we’ll chat about any topic in the District Plan that’s important to you!
Whether you’re planning to subdivide your section, renovate or build, run a business from home or organise a community event, you need to join the journey.
All ideas and suggestions made by Waikato residents in online conversations and at the drop-in sessions will guide the review of the current District Plan.
