Review of the Ahuriri Mixed Use Zone Draft Plan Modification (12) – To City of Napier District Plan

Public notice is given that the Napier City Council has prepared a draft plan change to the City of Napier District Plan for the Ahuriri Mixed Use Zone.  Although not legally required for release, Napier City Council has released the draft plan change in order to obtain feedback on the proposed direction of the document. Please note the draft plan change has no legal status. There is now an opportunity to submit comments on any aspect of the draft plan change.

The Mixed Use Zone provisions of the Operative District Plan – Ahuriri Subdistrict were reviewed in 2013. The review assessed the strengths and weaknesses of the Mixed Use Zone provisions in the District Plan with a view to identify how effective these provisions have been in managing land uses within the zone.  A report on the findings of the Mixed Use Zone review was presented to Council in September 2013 (‘Review of the Effectiveness of the Ahuriri Mixed Use Zone’). This document can be viewed on Council’s website.

Draft Plan Modification 12 (Ahuriri Mixed Use Zone) includes new issues, objectives, policies and rules for the Ahuriri Mixed Use Zone. The draft plan change also includes some adjustments to the zone boundary near the Ahuriri Suburban Commercial Area.

The primary changes proposed in the draft plan change are:

  • Amendments to the Issues, Objectives and Policies;
  • Change to the rule controlling the maximum permitted height of buildings and structures;
  • Change to the rule controlling the height in relation to boundary;
  • Change to the rule for outdoor storage;
