We are seeking an experienced consultant(s) to support the review process, working closely with the Wairarapa Councils.
We want the process, supporting information and resulting Plan, to be both legally sound and innovative, reflecting best practice and the aspirations of our Wairarapa community.
The successful consultant(s) will work with representatives from each of the Wairarapa Councils to develop a detailed project plan.
The project team would consist of both staff and elected members from each of the Wairarapa Councils.
The three Councils have resolved to undertake the review on a one-time but comprehensive basis to:
• Give effect to new or revised National Policy Statements, National Environmental Standards, the revised Wellington Regional Policy Statement and Proposed Regional Plan (and amendments likely to come as a result of the Whaitua Process – noting the plan changes and section 32 analysis for
these is currently in development).
• Give effect to the National Planning Standards making any adjustments needed to the structure, definitions and zoning and to make the plan align with requirements for electronic plans and address any consequential amendments required
• Consider the need to rezone areas to accommodate growth pressures and/or modify existing zones and standards to enable growth and conversely to tighten up protection of resources with important values (and in line with national direction from National Policy Statements, Environmental Standards
• Enable opportunities to align the Plan with recent strategies, such as the Wairarapa Economic Development Strategy and Action Plan, the Water Resilience Strategy and the Regional Growth Framework (the latter two are currently in development)
• Revise any objectives and policies in response to any issues arising from their implementation or to respond to any statutory amendments (for example, the two new section 6 matters of national importance since 2009) and
• Revise any rules and supporting requirements in response to any implementation issues since 2009.
