What is a District Plan?​

The District Plan tells us what we can and can’t do with our land. It makes rules about where we can subdivide, what activities we can do and where we can do them. It also controls things like nuisance – so that the places we live in are comfortable and safe.

Every 10 years, we have the opportunity to shape the future of our communities and our rural environment by reviewing the District Plan.

Our new District Plan will manage the use of land in the Waitomo District by setting out a policy framework and rules to achieve the sustainable management of natural and physical resources.
