Plan Change 12: Further 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 called for submissions, then further submissions, which closed on 16 May, 2018. A hearing has been scheduled for 17 and 18 September.
Proposed Plan Change 12
In case you missed the original notification of Plan Change 12, here's a quick summary.
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.
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.
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.
We received 19 submissions on Plan Change 12 during our initial consultation period in February/March 2018. We then prepared a Summary of Submissions and took further submissions on these until Wednesday 16 May, 2018.
