w ww.w dc.govt.nz Whangarei District Council gives notice that it has prepared the following proposed plan change to the Whangarei District Plan: Plan Change 120 – Kamo Walkability Environment (KWE): Seeks to introduce an „Environment‟ (zone) and three „Precincts‟ to the Operative District Plan and will include objectives for the Environment, objectives, policies and rules for the Precincts, and updated District Plan maps. As part of Council‟s rolling review of the District Plan, those urban areas experiencing the most rapid change have been identified as “change areas”. Kamo is one of these “change areas” and the first to have community consultation through the “Kamo Place Race”. Themes raised in consultation have informed the drafting of the proposed plan change. KWE is generally defined as „the walkable catchment around the Kamo commercial centre and contains a Primary and Secondary Pedestrian Network‟. It comprises areas currently zoned Business 3, Living 1, and Open Space Environments. KWE is made up of three precincts: the Kamo Activity Precinct which is a mixed-use business precinct, and two residential precincts (Kamo Medium Density Living Precinct and Kamo Low Density Living Precinct). The extent and boundaries of the precincts have been determined by current zonings, existing open space, topography, known hazards (particularly mining hazard areas) and recommendations of the 2009 Kamo Structure Plan. Pursuant to Section 86B of the Resource Management Act 1991, Whangarei District Council has resolved that all the rules in Plan Change 120 shall have legal effect only once the proposed plan change becomes operative in accordance with Clause 20 of Schedule 1 to the RMA Act.
