A total of 57 submissions were received on new housing intensification rules, which allow for more housing and at greater heights in relevant residential areas in Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton.

The further submission consultation in November followed the notification of mandatory variations to the Proposed Selwyn District Plan and to eight private plan changes to the Operative Selwyn District Plan earlier this year.

45 further submissions were made on the submissions received on the variation to the Proposed District Plan, and a total of 12 further submissions were made on the variation to private plan change (PC) 68 and PC72 in Prebbleton, PC69 in Lincoln and PC71, PC73, PC75, PC76 and PC78 in Rolleston.

Our planning team is considering these and preparing a series of officer reports with recommendations regarding the submission points made ahead of the public hearings. We expect to hold the hearings in May to June 2023, where independent commissioners will consider all submissions, staff recommendations and evidence received.

Anyone who has made a submission will have the right to attend the hearings and present their ubmission if they wish. We will let submitters know when we reach this stage.

The Council will notify a decision on the variations by 20 August 2023. Given all variations must proceed through a new streamlined planning process, there is no right of appeal to the Environment Court.
