Wairarapa Combined District Plan

 

The three Wairarapa District Councils (Masterton, Carterton and South Wairarapa) have prepared a Combined District Plan, under the Resource Management Act 1991. It was the first Combined District Plan in New Zealand and the first 2nd generation plan to become fully operative.

 

The District Plan.

The District Plan is set out in the following two volumes:

Volume 1: Objectives, Policies and Rules

Volume 2: Maps

Hard copies of the District Plan are available for viewing at the Council offices and public libraries.

The two volumes of the Plan can be purchased for $125.00 (incl GST) or a disk of both volumes can be purchased for $30.00 (incl GST).

Further general information about District Plans can be found at the Ministry for the Environment website.
