What will your town look like in 15 years’ time?
Selwyn District Council is developing new Area Plans for Ellesmere and Malvern and we’re seeking your feedback on proposals to guide the development of local townships.
Last year we asked residents for their views on what’s special about their area, and how townships should develop. We’ve now put those contributions together with an analysis of trends over the next 15 years, and information about the opportunities and challenges local townships are facing, to develop these draft plans.
What’s in the Area Plans?
The Area Plans aim to provide high-level direction to guide the growth and sustainable management of townships in Ellesmere and Malvern through to 2031. For each township the plans propose options for where growth and development could occur. They also detail the projects, facilities and infrastructure that will be needed.
Although the plans do not specifically rezone any land, they will inform key planning processes including the District Plan Review, which starts this year, along with future Long-Term Plans, other Council management plans and strategies, and privately-initiated plan change requests.

We want the Area Plan to reflect what local people think is important and how they want the area to develop in the future. And we want you to be part of developing your local plan.
