District plan change 49

About this plan change

District Plan Change 49 rezoned a 8,288m2 portion of the Copeland Street Reserve (Lot 11 DP 25931) from General Recreation Activity Area to General Residential Medium Density Activity Area.


The purpose of the plan change was to rezone the area to the most appropriate zoning following the revocation of the reserve status of the area.

The northeastern part of the reserve was retained for recreation purposes. The portion that was rezoned was previously vested as reserve. The Department of Conservation agreed on 1 July 2016 to revoke the reserve status.

The Plan Change also rezoned 51 and 53 Hall Crescent (Lots 6 and 7 DP 25931) from General Residential Medium Density Activity Area to General Recreation Activity Area.
