Matamata-Piako District Council has prepared a summary of submissions on proposed Plan Change 47. It looks at the planning controls and zoning for Matamata, Morrinsville and Te Aroha. Council needs to ensure the right amount of land is zoned for housing and to accommodate new business or industrial activities. The plan may be viewed at any council office, library, or online at mpdc.govt.nz. Those who may submit include anyone representing a relevant aspect of public interest; any person who has an interest in the proposed plan change greater than the interest the general public has; and council itself.
