RNZ – Special zone for Gloriavale on the cards
By Laura Mills – RNZ – 06/11/2021
The Gloriavale Christian Community is set to have more relaxed planning rules and its own sub-zone in the new combined district plan for the West Coast.
The community of more than 600 people is located on land zoned rural at Lake Haupiri, east of Greymouth.
But with a high birth rate, it is expanding fast and is developing plans for a second site it owns at Lake Brunner Station, on the remote western shore of the lake.
