District plan review sees rule changes
Waikato District Council is in the process of reviewing its District Plan and talking to property owners who will be affected by any changes.
The Council has identified around 60 new heritage buildings that it is proposing to add to the heritage register. This means that there will be new rules around use and development of land associated with the heritage building.
Those with significant natural areas on their property will see rule changes in regards to the clearance of Manuka and Kanuka. For those with a notable tree, there are will be new rules around trimming, destruction and removal of the tree.
The Proposed District Plan also provides protection to Ma¯ori sites and areas of significance. These could be ancestral land, waahi tapu, pa¯ sites or other taonga. Around 500 property owners will be consulted as they’ll have this as an addition to their property. The main change will be around earthworks.
