- The definition of residential centres will be split in two representing these two different categories. These new categories will be known as 'Residential Centres' and 'Managed Care Facilities' respectively.
- All future Residential Centre developments will be required to apply for resource consent and will be judged against design guidelines, the density of existing development in the neighbourhood, the extent of existing Residential Centre development already present and the amount of parking provided. Council will have discretion to refuse consent.
- Managed Care Facilities will remain a Permitted Activity in the Residential Zone, however the standards with which they will be required to comply have been significantly strengthened. Resource consent will be required where any of these standards are failed.
- Facilities established under S.364 of the Children, Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989 or to which people are referred by a Court Order will no longer fall under the category of Residential Centres or Managed Care Facilities. Council does not consider these types of facilities to be compatible with the residential areas of the city.
