Further submissions closed at 5pm on Friday 7 May 2021.


Our new Proposed District Plan was publicly notified on Monday 5 October 2020.

The summary of submissions on the Proposed Plan was notified on 19 April 2021 and the further submission consultation closed on 7 May 2021.


We received 470 submissions on the notified Proposed District Plan, covering around 7,700 individual submission points. Of these, 62% of submission points were fully or partially supportive of the Proposed District Plan.

(Important note: our online Summit Up database can be viewed on a computer, laptop or tablet but it does not work when using a mobile phone.)




What happens next?


  • We are now considering all the submissions in detail and we will produce a series of Officer Reports with recommendations regarding the submission points made.
  • From July 2021 onwards, we will hold public hearings on the submissions received. At these hearings a panel of accredited commissioners will consider all submissions, Officer Report recommendations and any supporting evidence. We will contact submitters before the hearings start to let them know about how they can speak to their submission and when any expert evidence will need to be provided.
  • Following the hearing we will give notice of our decision on the Proposed District Plan (and matters raised in submissions, including our reasons for accepting or rejecting submissions).
  • Every submitter then has the right to appeal the decision on the Proposed District Plan to the Environment Court.
