The Council’s district plan review process is governed by an Order in Council which requires any private plan change requests received during the review to be referred to the Independent Hearings Panel. The Panel’s secretariat has directed the Council to notify the plan change request as a proposal to change the existing district plan.
The Panel’s decision on the plan change request will also become part of the Christchurch Replacement District Plan (the proposed district plan).
The Council has notified the plan change request and it is now open for submissions.
More details on the proposal and how to make a submission are available on the website at www.ccc.govt.nz/planchangerequests. Submissions close on Friday 30 January 2015.
The next steps of the process for this proposal are:
- Submissions close: Friday 30 January 2015
- Submissions published & further submissions open: Monday 16 February 2015
- Further submissions close: Monday 2nd March 2015
