An independent consultant planner is to run a workshop on how to write an effective submission on a proposed rezoning of the western end of Petone.

District Plan change 29 proposes allowing a greater range of activities, including residential, commercial, retail and some industrial uses.

Gina Sweetman of Sweetman Planning Services will give tips and advice on how to prepare a good submission as well as outline how the submissions stage fits within the wider process defined by the Resource Management Act 1991. The workshop is not intended to discuss the merits or otherwise of the plan change.

The workshop is on July 18 at the Petone Rugby Clubrooms, starting at 7pm.

The workshop is open to everyone. For more details or to register, call Judy Randall on 570 6892 or email Judy.Randall@huttcity. The closing date for submissions is August 10. The plan change can be found in full at the council’s offices, libraries and website.
