The stage two proposals are now available at www.proposeddistrictplan.ccc.govt.nz. There are also hard copies available for viewing at all Council service centres and libraries, including the civic offices at 53 Hereford Street.
Stage two includes definitions, papakainga, general rules, transport, Christchurch City Council designations, utilities, energy & infrastructure, hazardous substances, rural, open space, specific purpose zones (Defence Wigram, cemetery, Styx Mill Road transfer station, hospital, school, tertiary education and golf resort) and parts of the commercial, industrial residential, subdivision, development & earthworks chapters.
The Council has written to the owners and occupiers of all properties directly affected by the stage two proposals. We are also delivering a newsletter to all households and out of town property owners. This newsletter highlights some of the changes and includes a copy of the submission form.
The Specific Purpose Lyttelton Port Zone is not being notified with the remainder of the specific purposes chapter as it will be included within the Lyttelton Port Recovery Plan. People are encouraged to submit on that recovery plan regarding port issues. More information is at www.ecan.govt.nz/port.
