The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
As part of the Waimakariri District Plan review, the list of heritage items and the rules managing them are being reconsidered. This means we are looking at the current list of heritage items, whether they should remain listed; if any other items should be added and also if the current policies and rules protecting heritage items need to be updated.
These guidelines have been developed to assist you to nominate a new heritage item you consider should be included in the proposed Waimakariri District Plan. Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 3 August 2018.
The Heritage Items Schedule of the Waimakariri District Plan is a list of significant heritage items in the Waimakariri District. When an item is on the list it means that item:
Historic heritage items can include:
Any person or organisation may nominate a heritage item for evaluation by completing and submitting the nomination form.
Before you complete the form you should check our current Schedule of Heritage Items to ensure that your heritage item is not already listed.
Please read the assessment criteria to check whether nomination is appropriate and to assist you to complete the form correctly. You should only nominate an item if you consider it has significant heritage value to the District. Nominating an item does not automatically guarantee that it will be evaluated or considered for inclusion. Priority will be given to nominations that clearly identify the values associated with a place, its significance to the community, and any supporting background information. Therefore we encourage you to make a persuasive case for the significance of the item.
The following factors will be considered when assessing nominations:
Once the nomination period closes the Council will evaluate all submitted nominations. This may involve seeking further information from the nominator and a site visit to the nominated heritage item.
There is a planning process that must be followed before the new District Plan is finalised, including adding a new heritage item.
Once the proposed Plan (including the amended schedule of heritage items and associated policies and rules) is notified for formal submissions, and before any final decisions are made, the owner and any other person with an interest in the heritage item can lodge formal submissions for or against the proposal. After this, submitters will have an opportunity to speak to their submission at a formal hearing. Following the hearing decisions will be made on the content of the District Pan.
