District ‘rule book’ up for re-write

Nov 10th, 2017 | By | Category: Hot Topics, Latest News

Consultation is underway on the draft Waikato District Plan – the ‘rule book’ that manages the way land is used, developed and subdivided in the Waikato district.

It’s an important time for residents to give feedback because the plan governs how we live, work and play across the district but there can be different rules depending on where we live and what we want for our area.

The plan roadshow will be in Tamahere, 2pm to 7pm on Wednesday, December 6 in the Tamahere Community Centre.

It’s a chance to look at what’s new in the plan and talk to the district policy planners to offer your views, said General Manager Strategy and Support Tony Whittaker.

“Whether you’re planning to divide your section, renovate, build, want to run a business from home or organise a community event, then you need to join the journey,” he said.

“Once we have your feedback on the draft District Plan it will be finalised and then notified in early 2018.”

As well as the December 6 drop-in session comment can be made here on the council Facebook page and more information is here on the council website.
