Sub­di­vi­sion rules first up in rolling re­view

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil is re­view­ing the ru­ral sub­di­vi­sion rules in the district plan and needs com­mu­nity feed­back.

The Re­source Man- age­ment Act re­quires the coun­cil to re­view the plan within 10 years of adop­tion.

The Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Plan was adopted in 2005 and the coun­cil is plan­ning on com­plet­ing a rolling re­view by 2015.

The ru­ral sub­di­vi­sion eval­u­a­tion is the first stage of the re­view.

Part one of the re­view re­quires the com­mu­nity to think about what they like and do not like about the present rules.

‘‘It’s im­por­tant that the com­mu­nity tells us what it thinks of our rules dur­ing the feed­back stage.

‘‘ We will then con­sider all re­sponses and come up with op­tions for mov­ing for­ward,’’ the coun­cil’s group man­ager en­vi­ron­men­tal ser­vices Den­nis Bel­lamy said.
