NEXT STEPSWhat Do You Think?
Oakura Farm Park Ltd will be seeking a Private District Plan Change to enable the Wairau Estate proposal to proceed. As part of this process we are inviting public feedback. After reviewing the Wairau Estate proposal we would appreciate you taking a few minutes to give us your Feedback using the form below.
While part of the area proposed for Wairau Estate has been identified for further urban development (FUD) within the New Plymouth District Plan (Ref: Planning Map A61) the land is currently zoned as Rural Environment Area.
To enable the Wairau Estate proposal to proceed to development, Oakura Farm Park Ltd has applied to the New Plymouth District Council for a Private District Plan Change Request. The Request was lodged with the Council on 15 March 2018. You can view a full copy of the Request document here.
The Request was lodged with the Council on 15 March 2018. It is understood public notification will occur sometime during June 2018.
At it’s meeting on 2 May 2018, the Council’s Planning Committee, acting on behalf of the Council, resolved to accept the proposed Plan Change (for public notification) and to publicly notify the Request in accord with the provisions of the Resource Management Act 1991.
It is understood public notification will occur sometime during June 2018. When this occurs any persons’ who consider themselves affected by the proposal will have the opportunity to make a formal submission to the Council within the period specified in the notification.
Later in 2018, the Council will appoint an independent Commission to hear the Request. In due course (estimated late 2018/early 2019) following the hearing, the Commission will report to the Council and the decision will be publicly notified.
