We are now onto Day 3 on the Unitary Plan process.
On now is the last major topic which is zoning. This includes Rural Urban Boundary changes, including contentious areas like Okura. There are also ‘catch-all’ votes to accept the panel zoning in the South, West, North, Rodney and Central. After that there is just technical amendments and votes on designations to be done.
This morning so far:
- Residential rules have passed. Officer proposals to shift land use consent requirements from 5 to 3 dwellings were passed without debate.
- The zoning for the South, West and Rodney has already passed, though a few exceptions where office changes voted on.
- The council rejected the panel’s zoning for Crater Hill 10 – 9. This opens this up for Environment Court appeal.
- The Council accepted the zoning for a Clevedon Waterways Development that the staff reccomended to be turned down.
