Regional Policy Statement Change 4 Managing the Built Environment

  • Status: Operative 1 January 2014
  • Publicly notified: 7 December 2011Change 4 Construction Roadmap
  • Decisions issued: 26 March 2013

Change 4 introduced new provisions relating to the built environment and infrastructure into the Regional Policy Statement parts of the Hawke's Bay Regional Resource Management Plan.

Change 4 assisted in the implementation of the Heretaunga Plains Urban Development Strategy (HPUDS). HPUDS was jointly developed by the Regional Council, Hastings District Council and Napier City Council, and then adopted by all three councils in August 2010.

Change 4 included a number of new policies intended to provide guidance and direction to Hawke's Bay’s local authorities when making decisions on urban activities, infrastructure and associated effects, and had a particular focus on the Heretaunga Plains sub-region. Those specific policies embed the HPUDS’s settlement pattern and principles into the Regional Policy Statement, which local authorities will implement via regional plans and district plans.
