Summary of key issues with the current District Plan

over 1 year ago

As a result of the review of current policies and rules specific to the management of vegetation planting, we’ve identified the following issues with the current District Plan:

  • Potential confusion between the newly introduced term plantation forestry and the term plantations in the current District Plan.
  • Some of the definitions used in the current District Plan aren’t as effective as they could be.
  • Some rules are difficult to administer, and some readjustment of these rules would improve their effectiveness. Additionally, the current rule structure doesn’t align with the draft National Planning Standards.
