District Plan Review

Hearing on Plan Change 52, 55, 60

Every Council has to write and produce a District Plan and then review it every 10 years. A lot can happen in 10 years - different development pressures emerge, economic situations change, legislative changes are enacted and new issues need to be taken into account. The Manawatu District Council is reviewing our District Plan in sections.
