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.

Hudson Associates Landscape Architects - Natural Character Assessment of the Central Hawke's Bay Coastal Environment January 2019

Central Hawke’s Bay (CHB) District Council is currently in the process of undertaking a District Plan Review. As part of this process, Hudson Associates Landscape Architects have been engaged to provide a Natural Character Assessment of the District’s coastal environment.

Kessels Ecology has been contracted to undertake an assessment of natural heritage of the Central Hawke’s Bay District as a part of the Central Hawke’s Bay District Plan Review. Currently, natural heritage of the Central Hawke’s Bay focuses on ‘Areas of Significant Nature Conservation Value’ (ASNCV), which are generally based on the Department of Conservation’s Recommended Areas for Protection (RAP). The Central Hawke’s Bay is undergoing a full review, and therefore natural heritage and natural features are being reviewed to fulfil obligations under the Resource Management Act (1991).
