District Plan Review

About the Draft District Plan

The Waitaki District Plan is the community’s rulebook, setting out how land use and development is managed within our district. It has a major role in shaping Waitaki's future and what you can do with your land.

The aim of our ‘first cut’ Draft District Plan is to ‘check in’ with the community to ensure that we are on the right track before we commence any more formal steps with the notification of the Proposed District Plan. As a draft the Draft District Plan has no legal effect.

The engagement process has now closed, since commencing on 1 June 2022 and running for 3 months. However, conversations with landowners and stakeholders are ongoing and will continue where required.

The Council will now start collating and analysing the feedback received. The information received will be used to inform the Proposed District Plan.
