Inoperative Hurunui District Plan 2003
The Inoperative Hurunui District Plan 2003 can be accessed here. This version of the Plan has been superseded by the second generation Hurunui District Plan 2018.
The Inoperative Hurunui District Plan 2003 was made operative on 7th August 2003. During the lifetime of this Plan the Council processed nearly 30 changes to parts of the Plan.
Details of all of the plan changes can be found here.
The Inoperative Hurunui District Plan 2003 is divided into three main parts:
This part of the Plan identifies important issues within the Hurunui District based on broad concepts such as:
- Use of non-renewable resources (eg. land and soil)
- Protection of resources with significant value (eg. heritage)
- Protection and enhancement of environmental quality (eg. open space, privacy, sunlight, visual amenity)
- Hazards mitigation (eg. flooding)
Under the broader heading, issues are identified and objectives established to address those issues. Policies are developed for each objective and more specific methods for achieving those policies are set down.
The first section of the Plan establishes a hierarchy of management tools on which the remainder of the District Plan is based.
This section of the District Plan implements the objectives and policies set out in the Management Strategy. The Management Code is the rule section of the Plan and is divided into the following sections:
- District-wide Rules
- Environments of Special Concern (eg. urban areas, Hanmer Basin and coastal environments)
- General Procedures (including assessment criteria*)
* The Assessment Criteria contained in the General Procedures assist planners in processing resource consents and should be considered when preparing consent applications.
The Planning Maps are contained in a separate volume to the text of the Plan. The maps are divided into two sections for ease of use:
- General Management Area (rural)
- Urban Area (eg. residential, business, industrial and open space)
