Map showing spatial extent of submissions requesting rezoning

Council has prepared a map that shows the indicative spatial extent of submissions seeking rezoning.

Each request has a label which indicates the site’s zoning within the notified Proposed District Plan, and the zoning requested by the submission, along with the submission point number. Labels that include a * show that such a request’s spatial extent is approximate only due to the nature of the submission. These submissions typically did not provide specific addresses or areas, rather they broadly described locations sought to be rezoned.

E.g.,: ‘125.159 RLZ > GRZ*’ – this indicates the submission point number is 125.159, the zoning in the notified Proposed District Plan is Rural Lifestyle Zone, the zoning requested by the submission is General Residential Zone, and the spatial extent of this area on the map is approximate only due to the broad nature of this submission.

Many areas have multiple rezoning requests and this is shown by a darker shade of grey depending on the number of requests that are overlaid.

Some rezone requests were not able to be shown on this map due to their broad, or very refined, nature.

The zone acronyms used on the map are:

  • RESZ – Residential Zones
  • GRZ – General Residential Zone
  • MRZ – Medium Density Residential Zone
  • LLRZ – Large Lot Residential Zone
  • LLRZO - Large Lot Residential Zone Overlay
  • SETZ – Settlement Zone
  • CMUZ – Commercial and Mixed Use Zones
  • LFRZ – Large Format Retail Zone
  • MUZ – Mixed Use Zone
  • LCZ – Local Centre Zone
  • TCZ – Town Centre Zone
  • GIZ – General Industrial Zone
  • RLZ – Rural Lifestyle Zone
  • GRUZ – General Rural Zone
  • SPZ(PR) – Special Purpose Zone Pegasus Resort
  • SPZ(KN) – Special Purpose Zone Kainga Nohoanga
  • SPZ(KR) – Special Purpose Zone – Kaiapoi Regeneration
  • SPZ(PBKR) – Special Purpose Zone - Pines Beach and Kairaki Regeneration
  • OSRZ – Open Space and Recreation Zones
  • NOSZ – Natural Open Space Zone
  • OSZ – Open Space Zone
  • DEV – Development Area
  • DEV-WR – West Rangiora Development Area
  • DEV-K – Kaiapoi Development Area
  • DEV-NER – North East Rangiora Development Area
