Mokau Structure Plan

What is a Structure Plan?

A Structure Plan is used in areas where we expect growth to happen. It helps us to identify where that growth should be located and how we can service it. It also establishes what we would like our towns to look and feel like. These plans also support the District Plan by providing important information about community aspirations and by identifying matters we should address through our rules. 

How does the draft Mokau Structure Plan work?

WDC has collected the community feedback and now we would like to share the draft plan 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.

This is the draft Mokau Structure Plan:

This draft plan outlines four Key Moves for Mokau. These key moves were identified by the community as being important to support future development and growth in Mokau. All of the key moves are equally important:

  • Create attractive, safe gateway entrances and public spaces in Mokau.
  • Mokau is changing - how do we protect its character?
  • Improve footpath connections and access.
  • Improve viewpoints and access to the coast and river.

Using these key moves as themes, we took the community’s ideas and developed them into actions and plans to create a MAP. The diagram below shows how this is structured and the draft Structure Plan document provides details about how the MAP might be prioritised and implemented.
