Minden Lifestyle Structure Plan – Update

minden photo

Council have been working on a new Minden Lifestyle Structure Plan which will provide for subdivision in this area for up to 30 additional lots total in this zone at the time of writing.

I was asked by an affected Landowner to prepare an application for subdivision in anticipation of the council releasing the new Minden Structure Plan Rules. We met with council on 2 June to discuss the new rules and progress being made for their eventual release.

I have continued to monitor progress with council and the latest advice I have is that the new rules will be notified this Saturday July 30. Contact me (Paul Ellison) for further subdivisional advice if your property is situated in the Minden Lifestyle Structure Plan Area.

UPDATE – 5 August

We mentioned last week WBOP District Council’s intention to publicly notify the Minden Lifestyle Structure Plan. The notification occurred on Saturday 30/7/11. This change to the District Plan creates a limited opportunity to subdivide for landowners in this area.

Council’s District Plan Policies restrict the number of new lots that can be created within this zone until future strategic roading is in place. Council have advised that they have already received a handful of applications today (Monday 1 August). We will continue to monitor the uptake of this opportunity to create new lots in the Minden Lifestyle Zone.

Contact me for further subdivisional advice if you think your property may qualify for subdivision under the new Structure Plan rules and you are considering taking advantage of the opportunity provided under this rule change.
