What’s the maximum size you are considering a family flat should be allowed to be?
In residential zones it is recommended that the maximum floor area of 70m2 is kept, while in the Rural Zone it’s recommended to increase it to 90m2.
Currently the maximum gross floor area of permitted family flats in the District Plan is 70m2. However, for those family flats where resource consent has been required, the average floor area is 90m2. The majority of the oversized family flats consented were in the Rural Zone (Inner Plains), which gives support to a larger floor area being considered within the Rural Zone.
Why are you proposing to remove the limit on who may occupy a family flat?
What do the proposed changes to family flats related rules in the current District Plan mean for the property rates and Development Contributions?
Where can I find more information about the District Plan Review of family flats to date?
