Update 19 August 2022

As per the Commissioners Hearing Minute, the following Officer's S42A report has been prepared and circulated to submitters and the Commissioner for consideration at the hearing.

Given the commonalities between this plan change and Plan Change 81, in terms of the proponent, location, submitters and planning context, both plan changes are to be heard jointly, and the s42A report considers both. While they remain separate requests, issues common to both are dealt with jointly, but matters specific to only one of the plan changes are assessed separately.

Update 16 August 2022

The proponent has provided the following documentation confirming a number of minor amendments to the plan change as notified, as follows:

  1. Removal of any reference to a ‘qualifying matter’, insofar that this term is used in the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other Matters) Amendment Act 2021 (‘EHS Act’) and section 77I in particular, and the removal of reference to a ‘maximum’ number of households.

    It is still proposed that the plan change retains a method for assessing (and if necessary mitigating) transport effects of further development of the land in the future. This is proposed to be managed through the inclusion of an assessment matter for subdivision consent that would require consideration of any recommendations in an integrated transport assessment (‘ITA’) where a specified number of allotments or dwellings over the plan change area is exceeded. For PC81 this rule would apply to any subdivision resulting in more than 350 allotments, or which provides for more than 350 dwellings, in total on the subject land.

  2. In response to matters raised in the submission by the Ministry of Education, it is proposed to include wording regarding the potential provision of educational facilities in policy, assessment matters and outline development plan text.
  3. The proponent has also taken the opportunity to formally propose minor amendments in response to matters raised in the course of the hearing on Plan Change 73 (PC73). Specifically, it is proposed to include assessment matters that concern:
    1. 'Whether the pattern and staging of development commences adjacent to Dunns Crossing Road and/or adjacent land development to maximise connectivity and the efficient provision of infrastructure'; and,
    2. 'The appropriateness of any mechanism proposed to address boundary treatment requirements identified within the Outline Development Plan'.
