DRAFT PLAN CHANGE 10 TO THE OPERATIVE CITY OF NAPIER DISTRICT PLAN
Public notice is given that the Napier City Council has prepared the following Draft Plan Change to the Operative City of Napier District Plan and now invites comments on the proposed changes.
Draft Plan Change 10: Incorporating the Ahuriri Subdistrict Plan into the Napier District Plan; Harmonising provisions where practicable between the Napier and Hastings District Plans and; Incorporating recent Council policy changes and decisions into the Napier District Plan
Draft Plan Change 10 is largely a community-driven Plan Change that aims to harmonise District Plan provisions in the Napier District Plan and the Hastings District Plan wherever practicable while retaining a primary focus on ‘place-based’ planning. There are three distinct ‘arms’ to this Plan Change; incorporating the Ahuriri Subdistrict Plan into the Operative City of Napier District Plan; harmonising primarily non-‘place based’ provisions between the Napier and Hastings District Plans; and incorporating recent Council policy changes and decisions into the Napier District Plan.
The primary changes proposed in Draft Plan Change 10 are:
To integrate the Ahuriri Subdistrict provisions into the Operative Napier District Plan so that all planning rules for Napier are held within one planning document.
To harmonise wherever practicable the following district wide activities (and in some instances also ‘place-based’ activities) between the Napier and Hastings District Plans in order to achieve consistency between the two authorities.
District Wide Activities
Place Based Activities
