Operative as of 20 January 2021

Kirwee Central Properties Limited have lodged a private plan change request with Council. The Plan Change seeks to rezone approximately 17.9 hectares of land from Living 2A to Living 1.

The requested plan change does not seek to introduce any new objectives, policies or rules into the District Plan. Rather it proposes to utilise the existing Living 1 zone rules to facilitate development of residential sections with an average minimum allotment size of 800m2.

If approved, the plan change may result in the ability to provide for 164 residential allotments, which is an additional 118 lots above the 46 that already have subdivision consent.

A public notice [PDF, 404 KB] advertised in the Selwyn Times on 13 January 2021 identified that no appeals were received on Plan Change 60 and that the provisions will become fully operative on 20 January 2021.
