Central Hawke’s Bay District Council will release its draft District Plan to the community for consultation on May 20.
Required under the Resource Management Act (RMA), a District Plan directs how land is used, developed and protected for the future. CHB District Council’s current District Plan is nearly 20 years old, and doesn’t reflect the Central Hawke’s Bay of today or its communities’ aspirations for the future, says council chief executive Monique Davidson.
“A major priority of the new council elected in 2016, was directing the District Plan as a key tool to bring the outcomes of Project Thrive alive for the Central Hawke’s Bay community,” Davidson says.
“Some of the changes in the draft District Plan are significant, while others are just common sense, however there is still more that could have been done.”
