About the private plan change

On 9 November 2020 Hughes Developments Limited lodged a private plan change request with the Council. The request seeks a change to the Operative Selwyn District Plan by rezoning approximately 63 hectares of current rural land to residential land. This would enable approximately 800 residential sites and a small commercial zone.
