If you are building or making changes to your property check the Christchurch District Plan to find out what you can or can’t do.
Until the new plan is complete, use the new Christchurch District Plan(external link) as well as the proposed Christchurch Replacement District Plan and either the Christchurch City Plan or the Banks Peninsula District Plan to get a complete view of the district plan for Christchurch.
The provisions in this operative plan are current but may be subject to change as the Independent Hearings Panel is issuing decisions in stages and has the authority to reconsider any decision it has already made if it is considered necessary or desirable to do so to ensure coherency and consistency. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about this plan.
As a consequence of that withdrawal, the provisions of the Christchurch City Plan and the Banks Peninsula District Plan that relate to coastal hazards continue to apply. The provisions of those plans that still apply are set out in this table(external link).
The Christchurch District Plan includes all planning maps, provisions, features and zoning made operative up to and including 11 August 2017.
