Mandatory Change National Policy Statement on Urban Development - Waikato District Operative Plan

The National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 directs the council to incorporate housing bottom lines for sufficient, reasonably expected to be realised development capacity for housing in district plans as soon as practicable after a Housing and Business Development Capacity Assessment is made publicly available. This change is made without using the process in Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).

In accordance with section 55(2A)(b) of the RMA, the Waikato District Plan was updated on 16 December 2021 to meet this mandatory requirement.
