Proposed Plan Changes
The Council is constantly reviewing and updating the District Plan to make sure it’s fit for purpose and enabling good development in Hamilton.
Plan Change 6 - initial consultation
We are currently seeking initial feedback on Proposed Plan Change 6. Its main purpose is to incorporate recommendations from the Regulatory Efficiency and Effectiveness Programme (REEP), where resource consent applicants provided feedback on what would make developing in the city easier while still delivering the outcomes the District Plan is seeking.
At the same time, we’re taking the opportunity to make two other minor changes to the District Plan to:
- correct a mapping error in relation to the National Grid Yard and National Grid Corridor
- rezone Council-owned land (Lot 2 DP 425316) bordering Waiwhakareke National Heritage Park to reflect the site’s purpose as a reserve (Destination Open Space Zone).
Feedback is open until 4.30pm on Friday 10 May
. For more information including maps, the full list of draft changes (including the chapters with consequential changes) and how to provide feedback, go to hamilton.govt.nz/planchange6
