About the private plan change

On 17 December 2020 Marama Te Wai Limited lodged a private plan change request with the Council. The request seeks a change to the Operative Selwyn District Plan by rezoning approximately 50 hectares of current rural land in West Melton to residential land. This would enable approximately 525 residential sites.
