Decision Information (15 October 2016)

The Proposed Hurunui District Plan as Amended by Decisions on Submissions (October 2016) was publicly notified on 15 October 2016. This is the result of the Council adopting the District Plan Hearing Committee's Decisions on Submissions 2016.

View the Council decision document here.

The decision document follows a similar structure to the officer Section 42A reports, following a chapter layout with a discussion on the notified provisions, submissions, Council decision on changes to provisions and then reasons for each topic.

Giving effect to the Proposed District Plan

As of 15 October 2016 the Proposed Hurunui District Plan as Amended by Decisions on Submissions (October 2016) has legal effect.

As the decision on submissions are still subject to appeal, the Operative Hurunui District Plan also continues to have legal effect. This means that the two plans are operating in parallel and for a land use activity to not require resource consent it would need to be a 'Permitted Activity' under both plans.

At the end of the appeal period, any provisions of the Proposed Plan that have not been appealed are beyond the point of legal challenge and therefore will have full effect, so the equivalent provisions of the Operative Plan will cease to have effect.
