District Plan Review Update and Further Consultation - Autumn 2019

The purpose of this consultation was to provide an update on the key strategic issues, following an initial consultation at Issues and Options stage, which will help guide the District Plan Review and outline the next steps towards developing a preferred spatial strategy and accompanying policies.

This consultation sought views on a number of considerations which will guide the direction of travel for strategic issues which could appear in the Preferred Option version of the District Plan Review, providing the next ‘step’ in the plan making process. The key questions asked were:

  • Is the broad direction of travel as articulated the correct high level approach?
  • If not, what else should be considered or included?
  • Are there any strategic issues that we may have missed?
  • Are there any other pieces of evidence that you feel the Council will need?

Call for Sites

Alongside the District Plan Review Update, the Council launched a ‘Call for Sites’ exercise, where we invited landowners, their agents and the public to submit sites to us which they feel have development potential. To guide this process, we produced a Call for Sites form and a table of Identified Considerations. These considerations provided guidance to developers and landowners on some of the factors and constraints we will be using when assessing all submitted sites.
