Housing density in the district’s outer, more green areas will be reduced to ensure land is retained for rural production if the plan is approved.
Selwyn District Council released the draft plan last week and a public consultation period has now started for people to make submissions with their feedback on the plan.
The plan was last reviewed 10 years ago.
It is expected that the new plan will be in place by the end of 2022.
Meanwhile, a resource consent application has been received for the construction of a new 41-house subdivision in Lincoln.
The land is considered appropriate for this development because it lies close to a commercial area.
Flynn said the location of the subdivision will also be appropriate because it is close to Lincoln University.
"This application is still being considered by our consenting team," she said.
"This was considered appropriate due to its location in close proximity to the commercial area and the university."
