Strategy development process and timeline

Phase 1 of HPUDS 2010 – Data Needs Review

Phase 1 involved a data needs review and a gap analysis of all existing strategies. It was completed in May 2009, drawing together relevant Council discussion documents and consultation with Council staff.  The data needs review report identified what research needed to be done, as well as the process for developing, evaluating and consulting on the strategy.

Phase 2 of HPUDS 2010 - Further Research

Phase 2 involved further research to fill the gaps identified in Phase 1.   A Key Findings Summary Paper gives an overview of the 7 pieces of further research work that filled in gaps in existing strategies and plans as identified through the Phase 1 Data Needs Review Report.

The Phase 1 Gap Analysis identified a need to complete further research into seven broad areas.  Consultants were engaged to complete these work packages in collaboration with Council staff.

The seven works packages are summarised HERE

Phase 3 of HPUDS 2010 - Scenario Development and Evaluation

Phase 3 was comprised of two stages. The first involved scenario development and informal consultation, and the second involved an evaluation of scenarios.  The papers associated with Phase 3 are HERE.

Phase 4 of HPUDS 2010 - Draft Strategy Development

This involved development of the draft strategy.

Phase 5 of HPUDS 2010 - Consultation, hearings, decision and adoption June 2010

Submissions made on the Draft HPUDS 2010 were heard by the HPUDS Joint Committee during 14 - 21 June 2010. The Joint Committee's Report on submissions to the Draft Heretaunga Plains Urban Development Strategy, an executive summary, and associated documents and the Final Draft Strategy Document are HERE.
