25.1.1 Purpose

​​​​​​a) The purpose of this chapter is to provide guidance on the development of land when it occurs in isolation from, or in conjunction with, a subdivision of land. This chapter provides linkages to provisions in other parts of the District Plan that must be considered when undertaking a development such as those identifying site-specific cons​​traints to development, the provision of infrastructure, and the design of the development.
b)​ This chapter also provides objectives and policies complementing the National Environmental Standard on Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health with regard to managing use, development and subdivision on land affected by, or likely to be affected by contaminants. This District Plan concentrates on contamination that poses a risk to human health. The Waikato Regional Plan manages effects on the natural environment with respect to contaminated land.​
