About this plan change
District Plan Change 29 created a mixed use area and promoted more diversity in activities in the area. The plan change area is generally bound by Hutt Road, Petone Avenue, Campbell Terrace, Victoria Street, Sydney Street and The Esplanade. The new area incorporates land previously included in the Petone Commercial Activity Area 2 and the General Business Activity Area (including the Esplanade West area) to promote its transformation into a mixed use environment primarily for residential, commercial and larger scale retail activities.
The changes include, but are not limited to, amendments to the following provisions:
- Building Form, Height and Design
- Traffic and Parking
- Residential Amenity
- Cultural Heritage
- Natural Hazards
In addition Plan Change 29 introduces a Petone West Design Guide.
Three properties on the eastern side of Victoria Street immediately south of Campbell Terrace were rezoned from ‘General Business Activity Area’ to ‘Jackson Street Historic Retail Precinct - Petone Commercial Activity Area – Area 1’.
