About the private plan change

On 9 October 2020 GW Wilfield Limited lodged a private plan change request with the Council. The request seeks a change to the Operative Selwyn District Plan by rezoning approximately 33 hectares of current rural land in West Melton to residential land. This would enable approximately 131 residential sites.

On this page you can find all the information on the plan change request, including material that has been made available at each stage of the application process.
