Plan Change 5 - Hanmer Springs design standards
Plan change 5 ('PC5') is a Council initiated plan change to the Hurunui District Plan.
PC5 is a review of the design standards applied to buildings within Hanmer Springs Township and the Hanmer Basin Management Area. Design standards have been applied in some form since 1989. The design standards applied to maintain the alpine character of the Township and the landscape character and amenity values of the Hanmer Basin Management Area.
PC5 seeks to ensure the design standards are as efficient and effective as possible, so they balance maintaining the identified character of Hanmer Springs and the Basin Management Area, while better enabling the built environment.
