This Proposal will expedite the planning changes required for further development of the sports and recreation facilities at the Yaldhurst Recreation and Sports Facility at 466-482 Yaldhurst Road (known as ‘Christchurch Football Centre’).

  • change Planning Map 29 and 30 to rezone 466-482 Yaldhurst Road, Christchurch legally described as Lot 1 DP 78059, Lot 2 DP 511394 and Lots 2 and 4 DP 64235 from Open Space Community Park Zone to Open Space Metropolitan Facilities Zone;
  • insert site specific rules for the Yaldhurst Recreation and Sports Facility site at 466-482 Yaldhurst Road, Christchurch into the Open Space Metropolitan Facilities Zone provisions in Chapter 18 – Open Space;

  • make changes to Appendix 18.11.4 Yaldhurst Recreation and Sports Facility Development Plan.
