Variation 5: Amendments to District Plan Change 48 (Central Area Review)
Variation 5 has been prepared to allow the Council to consider the potential effects of any new exceptionally large retail development. Council seeks to ensure that any new development enhances the sustainability of existing retail centres (including the existing hierarchy of centres), does not compromise the sustainability of the transport network, and does not result in the unsustainable location of retail activities.
Please note that District Plan Change 66 (amendments to Suburban provisions and associated definitions) has been withdrawn and replaced by District Plan Change 73 (Suburban Centres review).
Submissions closed on 7 July 2008.
