Proposed Change Number One - Putauaki Industrial Zone
Kawerau District Council proposes to rezone an area of approximately 171 hectares of land located to the north east of the township of Kawerau. The purpose of the Plan Change is twofold; firstly it is to provide additional industrial land to address a shortage of industrial land supply in the Kawerau area, and secondly it is a statutory requirement as a consequence of a recent boundary alteration between Kawerau District Council and Whakatane District Council.
Proposed Change Number One to the Operative Kawerau District Plan was publicly notified on 9 May 2012. Decisions on submissions have now been publically notified and can be viewed by clicking on the documentation below. Appeals to the Environment Court close on 18 January 2013.
