On August 30 there was an article in the Timaru Herald about residents fighting an industrial zone plan change. This area is to the east of State Highway 1 at Washdyke.
The residents are appealing to the Environment Court. After comments made to me, I feel there is a need to clarify queries about this zoning plan and plan change 18 to the west of the highway.
Plan change 18 applied to the area from the intersection of SH1 and SH8, north to the Ken Wills complex. The area was changed from Residential 1 to Industrial L.
It is in no way connected with the area east of State Highway 1. The rezoning (plan change 18) was completed and signed off in March and there were no objection or appeals.
This change reflects the predominant use of the area and should make properties easier to sell.
