Waipā District Plan
The District Plan is a legal document prepared in accordance with the Resource Management Act 1991. It assigns zonings to all land within the Waipā district to ensure that a sufficient amount of land for each is available and it is used for its intended purpose. It also identifies features such as landscapes, heritage and natural hazards which require special consideration.
Within each zone and feature, the Waipā District Plan sets out what land use and subdivision activities are permitted or require resource consent. It also sets out the requirements for each to ensure that adverse effects on people and/or the environment can be managed.
Find out more about resource consents on the webpage Planning and Resource Consents.
Material incorporated by reference
The Operative Waipā District Plan occasionally refers to publications that act as a measure to help applicants comply with rules or provisions in the plan. These publications are known as 'material incorporated by reference'. You can view the publications either at the Te Awamutu or Cambridge Office, or you can request a copy of the material incorporated by reference (with the exception of standards) by calling 0800 924 723.
Council is unable to provide copies of standards (New Zealand and international) due to matters of copyright. These must be obtained directly from the source: http://www.standards.co.nz/default.htm
Our District Plan Snapshot tool is a quick and easy way to find out which rules and policy overlays apply to the property you are interested in. It generates useful information into a report that you can save or print for future reference.
