Spatial Planning Sessions

So what is a spatial plan? it’s a plan that maps out how you want your town and/or district to look in 10, 20 or 30 years’ time. Spatial plans help us to think about current development issues, and needs of future generations. It considers the constraints and opportunities for the appropriate use of land that may influence future development and growth.

Taking a long term and bird’s eye view of the District will provide the Kaipara District with a spatial plan that informs the strategic direction of the District Plan.

The Kaipara District Plan is designed to manage natural and physical resources that are important for our cultural, social, environmental and economic well-being. All land use, subdivision, site usage and development within the Kaipara District must comply with the Kaipara District Plan.

The aim of the spatial plan is to:

  • Provide one picture of where the district is heading and highlight significant and key areas for growth and change.
  • Provide a guide for investment decisions at a local, regional and central government level.
  • Identify the key issues facing the district and the priorities that need to be advanced to address these.
