District Plan

The District Plan explains how Council will manage land use in the Southland District. It outlines what activities you can do as of right, what activities you need resource consent for, and how certain activities may be carried out. It covers things like the location and height of buildings, gravel extraction, subdividing land and removal of indigenous vegetation.

The District Plan was made operative on 22 January 2018.
