District plan change 25

About this plan change

The plan change amended the District Plan in each of the existing activity areas to specifically provide for the tertiary education activities of WelTec whilst retaining the underlying zoning provisions. To ensure the particular amenity of each of the surrounding areas is best protected, and at the same time the activities of WelTec can be provided for in an appropriate way, rules were applied differently throughout the campus. Specific additional controls are provided for in the Tertiary Education Precinct where the precinct boundary abuts residential activities within the General Residential Activity Area.

In addition to creating a Tertiary Education Precinct for the campus, changes were made to Chapter 14A (iii) (Car and Cycle Parking) and Chapter 14B (Signs) of the District Plan to more appropriately manage on-site car parking and signage
