Council has received a record number of submissions, just over 1000. The largest number of submissions ever received for a plan change process run by council.
The policy team are now entering these into the system and summarising them. We are pleased with the number of people who chose to have their say on the proposed plan. We will continue to work with sectors to try and resolve issues ahead of hearings.
We will call for further submissions, mid-year, asking people to indicate whether they are in support, neutral or in opposition to any of the summarised points. Hearings are expected in late 2017, early 2018. You can read more here. Or find out more on our webpages here.
