Iona residential rezoning
The rezoning of this the land at Iona (through Variation 4) is now complete. The rezoning has been subject to aStreamlined Planning Process with the Environment Minister making the final decision on the rezoning. The decision was informed by the recommendations of three independent Commissioners with significant experience in planning and resource management law, stormwater, landscape and urban design issues, who heard the submissions on the rezoning.
The rezoning now has full effect (from 19 September 2018) and means that some 55 hectares of land is available for residential development. The extent of the rezoning area is depicted on the Iona development area map. The ePlan (Council's on-line version of its District Plan) is being updated to give effect to the Minister's decision.
