The Land Use Recovery Plan - The Land Use Recovery Plan (LURP) took effect on 6 December 2013. It is a statutory document that directs the Waimakariri District Council to make changes to its District Plan. Some of these changes have already occurred, while others are to be developed by the Council and provided to the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery within specified timeframes. Comments are now invited on Actions 12, 21, 26 and 28. Comments will need to be received by 5 pm on Friday 17 October 2014.

Building Consent Applications - Delay - Please note that, in the interim period while the Council is in the process of changing over to its new computer system, there could be delays in the processing of Building Consent applications. We, and our IT contractors, have allocated extra resources to addressing these delays and we hope to be able to return to a more satisfactory level of service as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience delays may cause.

Infrastructure Recovery - The Council's infrastructure rebuild programme also involves infrastructure works in the Red Zone.  We have undertaken necessary investigations and prepared cost estimates to determine preferred works in most instances, but cannot progress all required works until future Red Zone decisions are made. The report is available on our Infrastructure Recovery page.
