Public Submissions sought for District Plan Change
A proposed change to the Napier District Plan - Plan Change 12 - would see a Special Mission Character Zone replace existing zones on the 288.6ha surrounding Mission Estate Winery. NCC are taking submissions on the proposed change until Friday 9 March.
Napier City Council has adopted Plan Change 12 to the Operative City of Napier District Plan to provide for a new Mission Special Character Zone.
This proposed zone will replace existing zones across 288.6ha of land owned by Marist Holdings (Greenmeadows) Limited, on the land best known as the site of the Mission Estate Winery and concert.
Under the proposal the land will be divided into four precincts: residential, landscape and visitor, productive rural, and rural residential.
What are the objectives of Plan Change 12?
Development objectives for the proposed future of the MHL land have been formulated in consultation with Council. These development objectives are to:
- Protect the visual amenity value of this landscape as a backdrop to Taradale and the City of Napier and in particular the integrity of the skyline.
- Provide connectivity as a walkway link across the Western Hills.
- Provide connectivity as part of an ecological corridor within the City Reserves Network.
- Provide a different style of residential opportunity in Napier.
