Current District Plan

What is a District Plan?

Under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) Council is required to have a district plan to assist us in carrying out our functions to achieve the purpose of the RMA. The purpose of the RMA is to promote the sustainable management of natural and physical resources.

The Waitaki District Plan is the community's rulebook that sets out the provisions governing the use of land within our district. It has a major role in shaping Waitaki's future and what you can do with your land.

How to use the District Plan

The District Plan contains rules that may affect you if you are doing something on your land. To find out what is allowed to happen on a piece of land refer to the District Plan Maps, locate your property and identify the zoning. Each zone is identified by colour and notated in the map leged. Each zone has its own chapter containing the rules.
