The Vincent Spatial Plan
Since autumn last year we’ve been talking with our Vincent communities about the development of a spatial plan to address the challenges and opportunities for growth and land use in the Alexandra Basin, Omakau and Ophir.
We’re now seeking feedback on the draft spatial plan to help fine-tune these plans before they go to Council for adoption.
Check out the flipbook style booklet below or download the PDF version What do you think? Draft Vincent Spatial Plan engagement document (PDF, 2MB) and then head to the link below to give your feedback by 30 September.

What is the Vincent Spatial Plan?
The Vincent Spatial Plan will set out a visual blueprint for the next 30 years showing what could go where and how aspects such as infrastructure, housing and productive land use could fit together.
It is a vision of what the future could look like, offering guidance to the private and public sector, including direction for infrastructure investment and CODC’s future planning. It will also be used to inform a review of the District Plan.
How will the Vincent Spatial Plan be used?
The final spatial plan will be used to guide future zoning in a District Plan Review. The District Plan is the community’s rulebook, setting out the framework that governs how land is used and developed within our district. When Council adopts the final spatial plan, a series of changes to the District Plan will be prepared. The community will have another opportunity to give feedback at this point.
Providing for different types of housing is one of the considerations of the Vincent Spatial Plan. Housing in Vincent tends to be traditional, standalone single dwellings. We are used to larger sections, larger houses and plenty of space. With social, demographic, financial and environmental changes, there is greater demand for different types of houses with good access to open space and facilities.
The graphics here show a range of housing types and densities (how many houses there are in a given area) that are being considered for the future.
Our community conversations
We’ve been talking with our Vincent communities about the development of a spatial plan that addresses the challenges and opportunities for growth and land use in the Alexandra Basin, Omakau and Ophir.
Our engagement process began in Autumn 2020 with the Vincent Ward community survey.

We also held public drop-ins in Omakau, Alexandra and Clyde in August 2020. You can also click through to an interactive model of the feedback we received at these sessions here: https://arcg.is/eG48L
From these community conversations and the other information we gathered, we drafted up spatial plan options for the Vincent area that we asked the community to provide feedback on from mid-December 2020 to mid-February 20201.
