The Rodney District Council has released its August 2008 decision on submissions to district plan variation 58, which was delayed until the residential chapter of the district plan became operative.
Variation 58, which became a change to the council’s 2000 district plan, relates to high intensity residential & integrated residential developments.
The variation introduces a new rule 8.10.7 which contains a number of specific design rules for integrated residential developments in both the medium & high intensity residential zones. It also introduces new assessment criteria to assist in assessing the design aspects of new integrated residential developments, and makes changes to the policies &strategy.
The variation reduces the number of multiple household units allowed as a permitted activity from 3 to 2/site. There is no change proposed to the 1 unit:275m² density rule applying to such developments.
