Proposed Private Plan Change 20 (PPC20) seeks to rezone an area of approximately 194 hectares to the south of the Te Kauwhata township from Country Living Zone and Rural Zone to Living Zone: Te Kauwhata Lakeside and Business Zone with the inclusion of an open space overlay over a portion of the Rural Zone.
PPC20 seeks to enable high and medium density residential development to the south of the existing township with provision for a community hub in the proposed business zone. The proposed zoning has a suite of specific planning provisions to enable the development of the area at medium and higher density. These provisions seek to ensure that development happens in a cohesive manner through the requirement for large portions of the plan change area to be consented at a time.
Details of PPC20 can be viewed on the Council’s website www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz/sayit or in Council offices and libraries from 22 September 2017.
