Creating the Te Tai o Poutini Plan

Every district in New Zealand must have a working plan. Plans identify community values and how to achieve them by managing where and how services are delivered, and how resources are used.

Rather than each of the three West Coast District Councils preparing individual plans, Te Tai o Poutini Plan Committee is now responsible for preparing and approving a new combined district plan covering the whole of the West Coast.

Te Tai o Poutini Plan Committee is a joint committee comprising:

  • Buller District Council
  • Grey District Council
  • Westland District Council
  • West Coast Regional Council
  • Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Waewae
  • Te Rūnanga o Makaawhio

In order to ensure that the Te Tai o Poutini Plan is progressed at a good pace, and to allow sufficient time for the important community and stakeholder dialogue that needs to take place around complex matters, a work programme which smooths the workflow across a 5 year period to notification of the Plan is proposed.
