Waimakariri District Council has accepted for public notification a District Plan change request from the Waimakariri District Council under part 1 of the first schedule of the Resource Management Act 1991. In conjunction with the Plan Change, a Notice of Requirement to designate the site for use of airfield activities has also been lodged.  Details of the Plan Change and Notice of Requirement are set out below.

Plan Change P045

This change seeks to amend the District Plan provisions to provide for limitations on development within the proposed 55dBa Ldn noise contour lines and the Obstruction Limitation Surfaces associated with the existing and future use of Rangiora Airfield. The purpose of the plan change is to insert provisions into the District Plan to align Obstacle Limitation Surfaces with current runway lengths, and to require noise sensitive activities (new dwellings or additions to existing dwellings) within the 55dBa airfield noise contour to be insulated from aircraft noise, to prohibit noise sensitive development within the 65dBa airfield noise contour, and to require noise from aircraft operations to not exceed 65dBa Ldn outside the 65dBa Ldn airfield noise contour.

Notice of Requirement for Designation

The notice of requirement application seeks to designate the whole of the Rangiora Airfield site at 219 Merton Road Rangiora, being RS 38634 for airfield purposes, as well as the adjoining land within the 65dBA Ldn noise contour in other ownership. Addresses and Legal descriptions of the sites in other ownership are 172 Priors Road, Lot 5 DP 410643, 80 Priors Road, Lot 2 DP 426606, 207 Merton Road, Lot 1 DP 410643, Ashley River Riparian Area, Crown Land, 385 Lehmans Road, Pt RS 33396 and Closed road SO 5157.

A hard copy of the application is also available to view at the Rangiora Service Centre, 215 High Street, Rangiora, Rangiora Library, 141 Percival Street, Rangiora, Ruataniwha Kaiapoi Civic Centre, 125 Raven Quay, Kaiapoi and Oxford Service Centre/Library, 34 Main Street, Oxford.

Any person may make a submission on this Plan Change and designation.  This feedback must be in writing and in the format prescribed by Form 5 of the Resource Management (Forms) Regulations 1991 or similar - see Submission Forms below.

Once all submissions have been received, the Council will prepare and publicly notify a summary of the feedback which will be available for public inspection.  There will be an opportunity for anyone to make a further submission in support of, or in opposition to, any of these submissions.  A Council hearing will then be arranged to consider all submissions, and decisions will be made.  Anyone who has made a submission will have the right to attend the hearings and present their submission. Generally, anyone who has made a submission also has the right of appeal against a Council decision to the Environment Court.
