Mission Estate Plan Change 12 website

Submissions for the proposed Plan Change 12 to Napier City's District Plan provide for a new Mission Special Character Zone on the land best known as Mission Estate Winery and concert.

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.

More information (and how to make a submission)

This is a very brief summary of what is a very detailed proposal. You'll find 17 PDFs, including the Summary Report, Schedule of Changes and the Mission Special Character Zone Structure Plan on the Plan Change 12 project page. You can also make an online submission on this page.

Please note that the closing date for submissions is 12 noon, Friday 9 March, 2018.
