These documents have been prepared by Mackenzie District Council as a result of the most recent Plan Change 13 Decision

Plan Change 13 s293 process and documents

Current Status: Plan change operative as of 1st of July 2008

The primary purpose of the Plan Change and of the Variation is to control and manage growth and development at Twizel primarily through rezoning of specific areas of land in and adjacent to the Twizel township and by changes to objectives, policies, rules, methods and maps in the District Plan. The rezonings, and Variation 1, do not affect Rural zonings at large but relate to Twizel only. It further includes district wide changes relating to small diameter pressure sewage systems, storage and re-use of stormwater, and extending the outdoor lighting restriction area.
