The Hastings District Plan is a legal document which sets out our council's policies and strategies for managing the use, development and protection of the natural and physical resources of the Hastings District. We are currently in the process of reviewing our Plan.
This is the current District Plan that was made operative in 2003. The Operative District Plan remains in place until the submissions and hearing process for the Proposed Hastings District Plan has been completed.
The District Plan sets out the strategic direction and rules that manage land uses and subdivision in the Hastings District. All local councils are required to review their district plan every 10 years under the Resource Management Act.
