The Southland District Plan is the primary document that manages land use and development within the Southland District. The plan was made fully operative in 2001. The majority of this plan has been replaced by the Proposed District Plan which is currently being reviewed. Nine appeals were received on the proposed plan and the areas these relate to are still covered by the current plan below.
