The Central Hawke's Bay District Plan (also called the Operative District Plan) is a first generation plan developed for our district under the Resource Management Act (1991). The Operative District Plan contains objectives, policies and rules for managing adverse effects on the environment and primarily addresses land use and subdivision activities.
The Operative District Plan has helped Council carry out some of its main functions, including:

Central Hawke's Bay District has changed and we are preparing a District Plan that reflects who we are today and our aspirations for the future.
We started our District Plan review in 2018 and received a lot of feedback from the community and stakeholders on a Draft District Plan. That feedback helped us develop this Proposed District Plan for everyone to consider. It was publicly notified in May 2021, Council received 123 submissions and 29 further submissions.
Council prepared a Summary of Submissions, and are now organising the hearing of submissions in 2022.
