Plan Change 46 - Development Concept Plan for Poultry Processing and Manufacturing, Waitoa

Plan Change 46 amended the Development Concept Plan for the Inghams Enterprises (NZ) Pty Limited poultry processing factory in Waitoa.

Progressive development of the Inghams site meant that the Development Concept Plan ('DCP') had effectively been superseded by resource consents and no longer provided for future growth of the facility. The purpose of the Plan Change was to ensure alignment between Inghams' existing resource consents and the DCP contained within the Matamata-Piako District Plan, and to provide for additional growth and development.


This plan change has been adopted by Council and became operative on 23 December 2015.
