Plan Change 88 approves major development

A private plan change that will rezone 307 hectares of Beachlands land from Rural-Countryside Living to Residential and Business zones, as well as Large Lot and Future Urban zoning, has been granted.

Independent hearing commissioners decided PC88 after a lengthy hearing and several months of deliberation since then.

With respect to transport related matters, the Commissioners advised they were satisfied Beachlands South Limited Partnership’s modelling was appropriate, that upgrades identified by the applicant were those necessary to address any adverse effects, and that they could be provided before or at the same time as development.

Franklin Local Board made extensive submissions on the application, including that Beachlands had few council-managed facilities, gaps in footpath provision, no secondary school or emergency medical facilities and largely relied on tank water.


Annual inflation at 4.0 percent

New Zealand's consumers price index increased 4.0 percent in the 12 months to the March 2024 quarter, according to figures released by Stats NZ today.

The 4.0 percent increase follows a 4.7 percent increase in the 12 months to the December 2023 quarter.

“Price increases this quarter are the smallest since June 2021. However, they remain above the Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s target range of 1 to 3 percent,” consumers prices senior manager Nicola Growden said.
