New Plymouth District Plan review

New Plymouth District Council has been undertaking a review of their district plan – the Proposed District Plan was notified for submissions in September 2019.

This means there is currently the operative District Plan and a proposed District Plan.

For the most part, it is the operative District plan rules which still apply and the new (proposed District Plan rules) will not apply until the plan making process is complete, However, a small number of rules – relating to significant historic sites, native bush and notable trees, and special waterbodies – do have effect now and these are indicated with a gavel icon in the proposed plan.
