District plan change 52

About this plan change

The purpose of District Plan Change was to ensure that all heritage features in the district that are listed, or were nominated and anticipated to be listed, in the New Zealand Heritage List were protected through the objectives, policies and rules of Chapter 14F (Heritage Buildings and Structures) of the City of Lower Hutt District Plan.


Through the Plan Change, the following amendments were made to the appendices of the Chapter 14F of the District Plan:

  • Nash House (14 St Albans Grove, Woburn) and the former Lower Hutt Central Fire Station (155-157 Waterloo Road, Hutt Central) were added to Appendix Heritage 1.
  • The former Naenae Post Office (27 Hillary Court, Naenae) was added to Appendix Heritage 2.
  • The ANZAC Memorial Flag Pole (Petone Railway Station, Hutt Road, Petone) and former Petone Magistrate’s Court (13 Elizabeth Street, Petone) were transferred from Appendix Heritage 2 to Appendix Heritage 1.
  • Dudley Cottage (formerly on Seaview Road, destroyed in fire) was removed from Appendix Heritage 1.

In addition, the Plan Change replaced terms used in Chapter 14F which, due to legislative amendments, became out of date.
