District plans govern how land is used and developed.
The Christchurch City Plan and the Banks Peninsula District Plan, which have been in force since the 1990s, have been reviewed and a new plan (the Christchurch District Plan) is nearing completion. Until this new plan is fully operative any proposal for land use or development may need to be assessed against the provisions of more than one plan. For help working out which plan to use please email the Duty Planner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
