District Plan Review - Background Documents

The District Plan review relied on a number of policy documents and specialist research. This page provides links for many of them.

A lot of technical information has been used to inform the District Plan review and shape the Proposed District Plan. These documents are linked below.

Many legal and policy documents have also informed and directed staff. These include: New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement 2010; Community Plans; Coromandel Peninsula Blueprint; Hauraki Iwi Environmental Plan; Waikato Regional Policy Statement; Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Act 2000.
