LandVision Ltd - Assessment on the Need for a New Rural Zone for Subdivision in CHB District

There has been a history of indiscriminate subdivision of small lifestyle blocks within the Central Hawkes Bay district for many years. Many of these blocks are located on highly productive and versatile land or soils. The effects of this are land fragmentation and the potential for reserve sensitivity issues.

 LandVision Ltd - Report Maps 1

Maps include: The extent of Lifestyle Properties in the District, The extent of properties less than 12 Ha in size, The extent of the LUC Classes in CHB, LUC classes 1 to 3, Levels of Versatility on Highly Productive land. 

LandVision Ltd - Report Maps 2

Option 1 minimises the amount of ‘other’ (non-highly productive land) that is incorporated into the zone. However it would be difficult for the planners to properly define this boundary and write rules around it.  Option 2 would have a large area of ‘non-highly productive land’ incorporated within the zone but it is far easier to adapt into the planning documents. Option 3 in some ways is similar to Option 2 but there is possibly more clarity as to where the boundary is located. Option 4 is very similar to option 3 but excludes the area of highly productive land to the west of Porangahau. There is a strong argument to exclude this land due to its proximity to services and ease of transport. The use of excluding cadastral parcels with a lower percentage of ‘highly productive land’ provides more fairness to the approach.
