Due to the statutory limitation, all existing underlying zonings of the HHAs will remain the same as part of this plan change. The existing rules, which can be found under Chapter 5.3 of the Operative District Plan, will continue to apply and you must follow them. If your property is listed within an HHA there will be additional rules within the District Plan that you must follow.
Nevertheless, Council is also working on a Plan Change, known as Plan Change 12, to respond to the government's National Policy Statement on Urban Development. As part of Plan Change 12, we will be looking at the appropriate zoning for the majority of residential areas across the city, including the ones within the HHAs. More details on Plan Change 12 will be available to public in the near future.
