Future Development Strategy Hearings Panel Subcommittee

Context

The Greater Christchurch Partnership is comprised of local authorities, iwi, health board and key government agencies. Governance for the Partnership is provided by a joint committee established under the Local Government Act 2002.

The Partnership oversees the Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy (UDS) which provides direction and a framework to guide long term growth and development across Greater Christchurch.

The Partnership is reviewing the settlement pattern aspects of the UDS necessary to meet the requirements of the National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity (NPS-UDC). The NPS-UDC requires high growth councils to prepare a Future Development Strategy (FDS) to provide sufficient, feasible development capacity for housing and business growth to meet demand in the short (3 years), medium (10 years) and long term (30 years).

The Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee resolved to collaboratively prepare a FDS (a ‘Settlement Pattern Update’) and to release a draft document for public consultation, allowing for submissions to be heard by a Hearings Panel. Consultation will be undertaken in accordance with Part 6 of the Local Government Act 2002 and the significance and engagement policies of the partner councils.
