District plan change 47

About this plan change

Plan Change 47 was a result of a private plan change request form from Urban Edge Limited, on behalf of F.L.Y Building Limited.

The purpose of Plan Change 47 was to enable further residential development at 280 Major Drive, 50 Kaitangata Crescent and 204 Liverton Road, Kelson.

In brief, the plan change involved:

  • Rezoning the area to a combination of General Residential Activity Area and General Recreation Activity Area,
  • Adding new policies to the Subdivision chapter of the District Plan to address stormwater management and traffic effects on Liverton Road,
  • Amending the restricted discretionary activity and discretionary rules of the District Plan, and
  • Adding a new non-complying activity rule to the Subdivision chapter of the District Plan.

At its 8 December 2020 meeting, Hutt City Council approved the plan change, as recommended by the Independent Hearing Panel for the plan change.
