Variation 7 - Hamilton's District Plan supports heritage & special character areas in Templeview

The Hamilton City Council has today unanimously supported changes to its planning regulations (District Plan) that provide stronger protection for the special character of the Templeview village, including the Church College of NZ campus (slated for closure & demolition by the Salt Lake City-based LDS Church hierarchy) and the iconic LDS Temple.
This marks a great move forward for heritage protection in Hamilton City, with Templeview now joining Frankton's 'Railway Village' settlement, Hamilton East's 'Hayes Paddock' and the Claudelands West area as deserving of recognition and preservation of their special characters. The main Hamilton East block is next to be looked at, early in 2010.
