Private Plan Change 56 - Lockerbie, Morrinsville
What is being proposed?
Matamata-Piako District Council has accepted a private plan change request to the Operative Matamata-Piako District Plan from Lockerbie Estate Limited and Lockerbie Estate No. 3 Limited (Lockerbie) under Schedule 1 to the Resource Management Act 1991(RMA).
Proposed Private Plan Change 56 (Lockerbie Plan Change) is a proposal that seeks to rezone approximately 78 hectares of land (described below) at 76 Taukoro Road, 182 Morrinsville-Tahuna Road and Lockerbie Street, located at the northern extent of Morrinsville.
This proposed plan change seeks to rezone the land from ‘Rural Zone – Future Residential’ to ‘Residential Zone’ and ‘Medium Density Residential Zone’ (MRZ), as well as introducing a supporting Development Area Plan (DAP) and a precinct which will overlay part of the MRZ.
This plan change will provide additional infrastructure and 1,200 additional mixed typology dwellings which include single dwellings, duplexes and terraced housing. Increased housing density in the MRZ and precinct seeks to provide for affordable housing to accommodate the District’s growing population.
In addition to this, Lockerbie Plan Change also seeks to introduce The Lockerbie Development Area Plan (LDAP) which offers a future development framework. This includes reserve space, road networks, pedestrian linkages and new transportation networks including:
- Connection to Morrinsville-Tahuna Road/ Studholme Street
- Two additional transport connections to Taukoro Road
- Two additional east-bound connections, future proofing adjoining for potential residential development
