This paper discusses the inconsistent use of terminology and use of different planning tools and how this affects plan structure overall. It also discusses the need for National Planning Standards for zone provisions such as objectives and policies, to set basic parameters for a set of key urban zones.

Initial feedback on the papers closed on 31 July 2017. There will be an opportunity to make a formal submission once the Standards are formally notified in April 2018.
