We are currently reviewing the District Plan which sets the rules for how the district’s land can be used, developed and subdivided and it is reviewed every 10 years.
Further submissions closed in July 2019 on nearly 1,000 submissions that it received following notification of the Proposed Waikato District Plan (Stage 1) in July 2018.
Stage 2 is currently in progress. This stage includes the review of issues relating to natural hazard risk and climate change. The review investigates how natural hazards and the effects of climate change may affect land use and development across the district and considers options for managing these effects.
