Operative Selwyn District Plan
In this section
Our current Selwyn District Plan was made fully operative on 3 May 2016. You can find the Operative Selwyn District Plan* online. Our new Proposed District Plan* was publicly notified on Monday 5 October 2020.
The Resource Management Act requires councils to review all operative provisions of a district plan every 10 years. A review of Selwyn’s Operative Plan began in 2015 and the Proposed Selwyn District Plan was publicly notified on Monday 5 October 2020 . All land use and subdivision activities will be considered under both the Operative and Proposed District Plans until the Proposed District Plan becomes operative. This is expected to take around two years, ie until the end of 2022, subject to any Environment Court appeals. During this period, you should check both plans to fully understand the planning rules for the district.
