Otamatea West Rezoning - Plan Change 46
A study of residential demand in Whanganui has identified demand for approximately 630 new dwellings in Otamatea by 2065. These dwellings would mostly be accommodated within existing areas already zoned for residential activities and a structure plan has confirmed an area where development could also be accommodated, including efficient and effective provision of infrastructure services. Plan Change 46 proposes to provide for residential growth by implementing recommendations of a structure planning technical report, including rezoning additional land to Residential.
All reports and relevant documents are available on the Council website Plan Change 46 page with hard copies of the hearing documents at the Davis Library, Gonville Library, and Whanganui District Council Customer Services.
