During the notification period the Council will hold a series of drop-in sessions across the district, as was done for the stage one chapters, where people can come along and learn more about proposals relating to their property or other matters in the stage two chapters. Planners will also be available to respond to email queries and answer phone queries about the stage two chapters and how they might affect individual properties.
There will also be a district plan review newsletter delivered to all households and Post Office boxes across the district. The newsletter will have full details about the process and highlight some of the issues under review.
After submissions close, the process shifts to the Independent Hearings Panel, which hears submissions and makes decisions on the proposals. Dates for the hearings and panel deliberations are still to be confirmed by the Independent Hearings Panel. These will be available on the panel’s website www.chchplan.ihp.govt.nz.
