District Plan Index

The intention of this District Plan is that you can determine which Chapter of the District Plan is most relevant to you and then largely only refer to that Chapter.

For example, if your property is in the ‘Rural Zone’ you should be able to look at that Chapter only, to determine whether your proposed activity is permitted or if you will need a Resource Consent. All policy elements and rules applying to that particular Zone (and any Overlays) are contained in each Chapter and these can be read without having to cross-reference to other parts of the District Plan (other than the Planning Maps).

An exception to this will be if your property also has a specific Site, Feature or Unit identified on it. You can determine this by finding your property on the Planning Maps (Map Series 2). If your property does have a Site, Feature or Unit on it, you will need to refer to the relevant Chapter in Part C of the District Plan. 

Another exception to this will be if you do require Resource Consent for a Discretionary or Non-Complying Activity or you are seeking a Plan Change. In these cases, it may be appropriate to consider your proposal against the Objectives and Policies of the District Wide Section (Part A). Remember, the District Plan needs to be considered if you are changing the use of land (or increasing the intensity of activity on land) or if you are subdividing. In other words, land can continue to be used in a manner that is not provided for the in the District Plan (or is only provided by a Resource Consent) if that activity was lawfully established before the District Plan was notified (this is an existing use right under Section 10 of the Resource Management Act).
