Draft Town Concept and Structure Plans

WDC has developed draft Town Concept Plans or draft Structure Plans for five of our townships. A Town Concept Plan is a method of planning which helps to identify the issues, features and opportunities available in our townships. A Structure Plan is very similar. It is used in areas where we expect growth to happen and helps us to identify where that growth should be located and how we can service it.

WDC would like to share the draft plans to make sure what we have identified properly reflects community aspirations, and most importantly, is practical to implement. This means we will also need to understand how and if we can fund these projects once the document is finalised, and that might mean making applications for funding from other sources.

You can read these plans by clicking on the links below:

Waitomo Caves Village Draft Structure Plan

These plans also support the District Plan by providing important information about community aspirations and by identifying matters we should address through our rules. In addition, the feedback we received from these communities has influenced some of our draft zoning decisions. You can see the draft zoning for these townships here.
