This layer is a spatial representation of an overlay in the Proposed District Plan and indicates where land use will be regulated by various associated rules. It will be used as a guide in the regulatory process of implementing the Proposed District Plan and managing land use, subdivision, the environment and economy. This dataset is subject to changes undertaken through the Resource Management act. Note individual Proposed Plan rules can have different statuses, some may have current legal effect and others will not until the Proposed Plan becomes operative. This data is provided for use in the District Plan only.

Defended Areas are areas of land that would be at risk from flooding during a 1% Annual Exceedance Probability (AEP) flood event if it were not for a structural defence such as a stopbank (These areas are not defended from all flood events. They are defended from flooding from a specified water course up to a specified design flood event). This belongs to the series of data relating to Natural Hazards which includes the following groups - coastal erosion, coastal inundation, inland flooding, and land subsidence. This layer belongs to the inland flooding group. Use in conjunction with High Risk Flood Area, Flood Plain Management Area,and Flood Ponding Area.
