Wairarapa Combined District Plan
The three Wairarapa District Councils (Masterton, Carterton and South Wairarapa) have prepared a Combined District Plan, under the Resource Management Act 1991. It was the first Combined District Plan in New Zealand and the first 2nd generation plan to become fully operative.
The District Plan is in two volumes:
Volume 1: Objectives, Policies and Rules
Volume 2: Maps
You can view the maps online.
You can view a hard copy at the Council offices or at the public libraries.
You can buy a hard copy of the plan for $125.00 or a disk for $30.00.
More information about district plans can be found on the Ministry for the Environment website.
