Housing plan change 'visionary'

Lindy Laird, Northern Advocate, 1 December 2016

Phase One of the Whangārei District Plan's Papakāinga policy became operative on 28 April 2011. Applications for Papakāinga currently require a resource consent as a discretionary activity. The existing provisions have not been formally utilised since they became operative.  94B represents Phase Two of Council’s Papakāinga policy.
