​​Proposed District Plan Variation 1 - Minden Lifestyle Zone (September 2010)

Enabling the Lifestyle Zone and Minden Structure Plan to go ahead is a key step in progressing rural growth in the Western Bay District.

In 2009 the Proposed District Plan First Review introduced the new concept of Lifestyle Zones. These are to provide semi-rural living choices that have good views, privacy and are close to urban areas.

Western Bay of Plenty District Council notified Variation 1: Lifestyle Zones and Minden Structure Plan Area to the Proposed District Plan First Review on 9 September 2010.

Variation 1 has now been through the submission and further submission phase and hearings and further hearings have been held. Decisions on Variation 1 were publicly notified on 30 July 2011. Two appeals were made against decisions and have been resolved. Variation 1 is now Operative.

The different stages of the Variation 1 process are summarised below including all relevant documents. They are listed in reverse chronological order with the most recent stage appearing first.

OPERATIVE DATE

Variation 1 became Operative on 16 June 2012.

APPEALS

Two appeals were made against the Decisions on Variation 1. These appeals were resolved by way of Consent Order in November 2011 which can be viewed below.

​DEVELOPMENT CODE

HEARINGS/FURTHER HEARINGS

Hearings on submissions were held on 14 and 16 March 2011.

Further Hearings on submissions were held on 14 July 2011.

Further Hearings were required to give submitters the opportunity to speak to any submission points affected by revised Planning Reports 3A, 5A, 15A, 19A and 27A.

PLANNING REPORTS

A number of Planning Reports were revised for the Further Hearings. The revised Planning Reports (3A, 5A, 15A, 19A and 27A) replaced the original Planning Reports of the same number e.g. Planning Report 3A replaced Planning Report 3.

These Planning Reports needed to be reviewed following requests for further information from the Hearings Committee at the Hearings on 14 and 16 March 2011. Further information was requested on the walkway and bridleway proposals, structure plan roads, the costs of infrastructure and for further traffic modelling to be undertaken.

BACKGROUND ON TRAFFIC MODELLING

It was agreed between Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency that further traffic modelling was required as a result of new dwelling and lot calculations for the Minden Structure Plan Area tabled at the Hearings on 16 March 2011.

The traffic modelling is necessary in determining the impacts of further subdivision on the strategic roading network and hence the amount of subdivision that may be allowed for within the Minden Structure Plan Area.
