The structure for the new LWRP will follow the format prescribed by the National Planning Standards, which requires the new LWRP organised into three separate parts.

Part 1 of the LWRP will contain sections that outline how the plan works and should be interpreted. It will also provide an overview of relevant National Direction Instruments and will include a Tangata Whenua section.

Part 2 will include sections on the integrated management of resources and on the region-wide and area-specific provisions.

Finally, separate schedules, appendices and maps will be included in Part 3
