The District Plan manages all land use and subdivision activities in the District, controlling what land use activities are allowed and where. A review of the Timaru District Plan has commenced and is an opportunity to reconsider everything in the District Plan including heritage.

Heritage Steering Group

Timaru district is fortunate to have much Historic heritage, found in buildings, places and monuments.  It is important to protect these resources to safeguard them for the benefit of today and the future.  It is also important to involve local experts and people who value our heritage in the decision making on how to protect these assets.  For that reason, a Heritage Steering Group is being established, to consider what items, and how items will be protected in the Plan.

To assist in the vetting of nominations of Historic heritage items, for inclusion in the Plan, we are calling for people to serve on the Heritage Steering Group to make recommendations to Council’s Environmental Services Committee, on what buildings and places are listed in the District Plan and what provisions should apply in relation to historic heritage.
