District Plan Review Discussion Document

Public consultation on the District Plan Review Discussion Document closed on 16 August 2019.​ The Discussion document was a first look at what may be in the new District Plan. There were no maps or detailed rules because we’re still working on those. It looked at the big picture and asked you: Are we on the right track? Are these the key issues? Are we dealing with them the right way?

Representation Review 2018

The feedback period for the Representation Review 2018 closed on 9 December 2018. 

On April 10, 2019, the Local Government Commission’s Determination on the Representation Review 2018 for Waitaki District Council was received. It upheld Council’s final proposal to allow the Ahuriri Ward to not comply with section 19V (2) of the Local Electoral Act (commonly known as the ‘+/- 10%’ effective representation rule).

A key consequence of this determination is that the Ahuriri and Corriedale Ward boundaries will be redrawn (to replicate the Otago and Canterbury Regional Council boundaries), and Duntroon will become part of the Ahuriri Ward as there was felt to be a community of interest between those in the Duntroon area and the balance of the Ahuriri Ward. The new arrangement will come into effect for the Local Elections on 12 October 2019.
