QLDC Proposed District Plan

Part of the service Reset Urban Design offers clients are urban design expert reviews and assessments.  We have been working with Queenstown Lakes District Council over the last three years on reviewing their Proposed District Plan (PDP) on urban design matters, which are particularly central to the new provisions for activities and land uses. Last month we represented Council at a series of mediation conferences, which were convened under the auspices of the Environment Court, to seek a resolution of matters of difference between appellants and the PDP. These mediation sessions went very well and all parties worked together to reach agreement which will save further legal challenges and provide for mutually conducive planning outcomes.
