Plan Change 10

Decisions issued 24 June 2015

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 provisions where practicable between the Napier and Hastings District Plans; and incorporating recent Napier City Council policy changes and decisions into the Napier District Plan.

The primary changes proposed in 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 Plan provisions between the Napier and Hastings District Plans in order to achieve consistency between the two authorities.
    • Natural Hazards
    • Network Utilities
    • Renewable Electricity Generation
    • Activities on the Surface of Water
    • Earthworks
    • Signs
    • Hazardous Substances
    • Noise
    • Transport (primarily, but not limited to, car parking ratios)
    • Contaminated Sites
    • Heritage including provision for safety alterations (earthquake strengthening) of heritage items
    • Temporary Activities
    • Non Rural uses within the Rural Zones (Home occupations, Supplementary Units, Residential Care Facilities, Day Care Centres, Education Facilities, Travellers' Accommodation)
    • Introducing Non-Complying Activity status particularly for subdivisions not meeting minimum lot sizes
    • Providing for seasonal workers accommodation
    • New provisions requiring the use of inert roofing materials in specified areas
    • Tyre storage
    • Stage One Implementation of HPUDS (Heretaunga Plains Urban Development Strategy)
    • Noise standards associated with Temporary Activities
    • Definitions
  • To update existing Napier District Plan provisions where they are affected by recent Napier City Council policy changes and decisions, including;
    • Temporary signs in rural areas
    • Realigning the parking exemption boundary with the differential rating boundary in the inner city
    • Sports Park Rezoning at Park Island
    • Rezoning Western Hills and Park Island Cemeteries from Sports Park to Reserve Zone
    • A proposed change to the boundary of the Sports Park Zone as it applies to Sir Donald McLean Park
    • Updating Code of Practice for Subdivision and Land Development to reflect current best practice
    • Rural Settlement Zone site coverage rules
  • To update planning maps to reflect the harmonised zonings and for consistency in style and colour with the Hastings District Plan.
  • Update and amend Appendices in the Plan as a result of any of the above changes.
