Waimakariri District Council are wanting to hear from residents about a draft strategy which identifies potential areas for future rural residential development.
Council’s draft Rural Residential Development Strategy is out for consultation from Friday 8 March to Friday 5 April 2019.
The draft strategy reviews the original Rural Residential Development Plan adopted by Council in 2010. Almost a decade on, it is timely to update the plan to manage the next 10 years of rural residential development and respond to the growth expected over this time.
In developing the strategy Council consulted with residents as well as planners to identify potential areas which could cater for rural residential growth.
Locations shortlisted for further rural residential development are Swannanoa, Oxford, Ashley/Loburn and Ohoka and Gressons Road (north of Woodend).
“It is important to consider rural residential development locations for future planning and to ensure that diverse living options are available,” says Development Planning Manager Trevor Ellis.
“We are seeking feedback on the proposed locations. This strategy is a draft only and there is plenty of time for people to have their say before anything we have proposed is finalised.”
Following consultation and taking into consideration any further expert advice, a final Rural Residential Development Strategy will be presented to Council for adoption in mid-2019.
The Rural Residential Development Strategy is part of the overall Waimakariri District Plan Review will be the vehicle through which the final strategy will be implemented.
A series of drop-in sessions are being held for people interested in speaking directly with a staff member involved with the strategy.
