Rangiora Airfield - Proposed Plan Change and Designation

Published: 15-Jul-2019

Waimakariri District Council has accepted a District Plan change request for public notification under the Resource Management Act 1991.

This plan change seeks to amend the District Plan provisions by introducing noise contours and obstacle limitation surfaces around the Rangiora Airfield, which may affect a small number of residents and future development in the Rangiora West/Arlington area.

The proposed plan change is accompanied by a Notice of Requirement for a designation of the Rangiora Airfield for the purpose of airfield activities. The designation process allows for activities to be carried out on the airfield site without consent, as long as they comply with the purpose of the designation.

All ratepayers in the Waimakariri District can expect to receive a notification letter with more information on these applications.

Both the plan change and the designation will be notified and decided upon together, and the two applications are now open for public submissions.

Anyone is welcome to submit their feedback on either or both applications.

Visit the Private Plan Changes page to make your submission and view further details of the proposed plan change (including the proposed noise contour area) and the associated designation application.

Submissions close at 5pm Friday 16 August 2019.
