Proposed Selwyn District Plan

8 days ago

Selwyn District Council has notified the Proposed Selwyn District Plan for public consultation (see the official public notice and media release ). The Proposed ePlan is available in digital format only and can be viewed at

For more information on the proposed plan, visit where you can find all the supporting information, including the consultation summary document Because it matters and Section 32 reports.

Most of the rules in the Proposed District Plan will not come into effect until after the Council has released its decisions on submissions. It’s expected that the new District Plan will be in full effect by the end of 2022, subject to any Environment Court appeals. Until then, current rules in the Operative District Plan also apply.


HortNZ will review the proposed Selwyn District Plan and prepare a submission in the best interests of growers. We plan to hold a meeting with growers to inform the submission.  Look out for the date. 

Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 4 December 2020.

If you have any queries, please contact Rachel McClung or 027 582 7474.
