District Plan

The Mackenzie District Plan assists the Council in carrying out its functions under the Resource Management Act 1991 so that it may achieve the purpose of the Act which is to "promote the sustainable management of natural and physical resources." The Plan was developed in consultation with local communities and interest groups.

The Plan controls such activities as:

  • Erection, relocation, or demolition of structures, buildings, network utilities and signs.
  • Commercial activities.
  • Earthworks.
  • Use of hazardous substances.
  • Planting, trimming or removing vegetation.
  • Subdivision of land.

Plan Changes

The Council reviews and updates the District Plan from time to time resulting in Plan Changes. These are summarised on our Plan Changes Record Card.

The online plan was updated on the 17 October 2011.

The online plan includes all operative plan changes and shows the changes from Plan Change 13, which is subject to appeal (PC13 changes are shaded in grey).
