Business Resources

Highlights from the Council’s Zone State:


The Business 2 Zone applies to the suburban shopping centres of Oamaru and the commercial centres of Weston, Omarama, Otematata, Kurow and Palmerston.

The primary function of the zone is to provide for local retail and service needs of the community within which they are situated and in the cases of Omarama, Otematata, Kurow and Palmerston to provide some services to the travelling public.

Due to changing economic and retail patterns many small shops are no longer viable and a broad range of activities is provided for to encourage the continued use of buildings. The zone therefore offers convenient and accessible services and shops and opportunities for establishing small businesses.

Performance standards aim to maintain the quality and amenity of the business environments as well as providing some flexibility in site development. Where the commercial centres encompassed by this zoning are located adjacent to residential areas the Plan imposes strict standards on activities and new buildings to ensure that the visual amenity and quality of the residential environment is not detrimentally affected.
