Plan Change 6 – Making the District Plan more enabling

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Where are we no​w?

What does Plan Change 6 cover? 

The Regulatory Effectiveness and Efficiency Programme (REEP) was set up to ensure the Council’s regulatory functions are delivered in an effective, efficient and customer-focused manner. Plan Change 6 incorporates recommendations from REEP to make our District Plan more enabling and workable. A summary of the changes can be viewed here.

​At the same time, we're taking the opportunity to make two other changes to the District Plan to correct a mapping error in relation to the transmission line buffer zone and rezone Council-owned land bordering Waiwhakareke National Heritage Park.
