About Central Hawke's Bay's draft District Plan

 

Our draft District Plan consultation has now closed

What is a District Plan and why do we need a new one?

A district plan is the ‘rule book’ that directs how we will use, develop and subdivide our land over the next 10 years. Required by law, it describes policies, rules and standards to ensure we balance economic and residential growth with protecting Central Hawke’s Bay’s natural environment for future generations.

Our current plan is nearly 20 years old - and it’s time for Central Hawke’s Bay to have a plan that reflects who we are today and our aspirations for the future.  In November 2016, Central Hawke’s Bay embarked on a bold and ambitious new journey as a Council and Community to create a new vision for Central Hawke’s Bay – Together we Thrive! The District Plan review is a key tool to bring the outcomes of Project Thrive alive for our community.

What does the draft District Plan cover?

Our draft District Plan covers many areas, including providing for sustainable growth, coastal and rural settlements, recognising our cultural values and heritage areas, protecting our unique landscape and protecting our land resources.

Some of the proposed changes in the draft District Plan are significant, while others are just common sense. You can download and read an overview of the draft District Plan  or the full draft District Plan here. You will find the Urban maps here and the rural maps here
