District Plan Review - Stage Four

District Plan Review

Mackenzie District Council is updating the Mackenzie District Plan to ensure the district can grow in a sustainable way, while protecting the things that make the area so special.

A District Plan is essentially the rule book that sets district-wide rules for sustainably managing how people use, subdivide and develop land, what and where they can build and also what kind of activities they can undertake without being required to obtain a resource consent.

The Mackenzie District Plan largely became operative in 2004, and many elements are well out of date and do not meet our statutory requirements under the Resource Management Act 1991. This means Council is required by law to meet certain obligations.

Stage Four

This Mackenzie District Plan Review is being undertaken in stages - click here to see the delivery plan.

Stage Four of the Review is now well underway, and we are looking to notify the below Plan Changes in November 2024, subject to Council approval. We have kicked off the second round of community consultation for the stage four topics. The first stage was held in September 2023.

Community Information Evenings

The District Plan Review project team are holding a series of community information evenings. These are an opportunity for you to discuss the issues relating to Stage Four with Council Staff and the project team, let them know what you think, and learn more about the process.

The dates for these are below:

Tuesday 23 July: Fairlie – 5.00 – 7.30pm – (Fairlie Community Lounge)

  • This will include specific time to discuss Historic Heritage for Burkes Pass (5pm – 5.45pm)

Wednesday 24 July: Takapō – 5.30 – 7.30pm (Tekapo Community Hall)

Thursday 25 July: Twizel – 5.00 – 7.30pm – (Twizel Community Lounge)

  • This will include specific time to discuss Hazards, including Hydro Inundation and the Ostler Fault (5pm – 5.45pm)

Have your say

We are running a survey which seeks to understand what people think about the proposed plan changes.

We’ll be using the feedback we receive to help fine tune the provisions before taking them to Council for adoption and notification.  

Council intends to formally notify later this year in November. Following formal notification there will be a period of further statutory consultation with the community meaning anyone can lodge a submission of the Plan Changes.


The survey can be found below.
