As decisions are made by the Independent Hearings Panel and become operative, they are included in the new Christchurch District Plan.

How will you be affected by the District Plan Review?

Use the property search to see what zones, overlays (including natural hazard overlays) or designations are proposed relating to your property, then go to the relevant chapter to find out more about the proposed objectives, policies and rules that will apply to your property.

There is a short video showing how to use the online property search.

Another way to find out more about how your property is affected is to go straight to the planning maps to see what zones, overlays or designations are proposed for the area you are interested in.
