Subdivision Design Guide


The Design Guide for Residential Subdivision in Living Zones was adopted by Council on 23 September 2009. It outlines ways to design attractive subdivisions which make the best use of their surroundings and context. It provides guidance for developers on how the Council will use its discretion in the assessment of applications.

The Subdivision Design Guide complements Plan Change 7 to the Selwyn District Plan, which manages the development of Greenfield sites in Lincoln and Rolleston.
