Amendment C96

Amendment C96 is proposing to implement the recommendations of the Heyfield Low Density Residential Land Supply Study, which was adopted during the Council Meeting of 18 April 2017.

The Heyfield Low Density Residential Land Supply Study provides independent recommendations to Council in relation to the availability of suitable, viable locations in proximity to Heyfield to provide for low density residential land (1 acre lots), which are developable within the short term (0-5 years).

In summary, the Amendment proposes to:

  • Include the recommendations for Low Density Residential Development into Clause 21.08 – Heyfield Strategic Framework of the Wellington Planning Scheme;
  • Make the Heyfield Low Density Residential Land Supply Study a reference document within the Wellington Planning Scheme; and
  • Rezone two areas (Draper Road and Burrnett Court) in Heyfield to the Low Density Residential Zone.

The specific details relating to this Amendment can be found in the Fact Sheet (2MB).

The exhibition period closed on Monday 7 August and submissions to Amendment C96 will no longer be accepted.  Several submissions were received and are now under consideration. 

Having considered all submissions at its meeting of 3 October 2017, Council resolved to adopt Amendment C96 and forward it to the Minister for Panning for approval.

The Amendment documents can also be downloaded from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website or can be viewed as hard copies at the following locations:
