As part of the District Plan Review, we have been looking at natural hazards in Selwyn. The Council has been addressing questions like: are the areas currently identified as being at highest risk from flooding and coastal hazards up to date with the latest available data and effects of climate change? Have we got up-to-date rules and policies in place to manage areas of the district at greatest risk from these hazards?

Latest science has now confirmed areas in the district that may be at risk from these natural hazards during more extreme weather events and when taking into account climate change effects. We are now in the process of sharing our findings with affected landowners and what that may mean for them. To find out more, click on the relevant natural hazard below.





Following initial public consultation in late 2018 on the general direction of the future Plan, the Council has been working on proposed rules and policies across a range of topics relevant to business, rural or residential communities and getting them ready for the Council to endorse. Following the endorsement, the Proposed Plan will be notified for consultation.

After the formal public consultation, submitters will have an opportunity to speak to their submission at a formal hearing. Following the hearing, the Hearing Panel will make recommendations on submissions and the Council will then make final decisions.
