The hearings on the residential zoning provisions of the PAUP (Topics 059-063) start on 14 October. Auckland 2040 is being heard on 16 October, straight after the Auckland Council finishes its case.
Auckland 2040 has been instrumental in achieving agreement between a number of key submitters on a range of residential controls. In return for more relaxed density controls we have secured tighter bulk and location controls. We believe the key to maintaining neighbourhood character is more prescriptive controls on coverage, height and height in relation to boundary. See Here for a copy of Auckland 2040’s evidence to the IHP for Topics 059-063.
A major issue of concern that remains is the Council’s proposal to change the purpose of the Single House zone which would inevitably have major consequences for a range of suburbs such as Mt Eden, Herne Bay, Mt Albert, Remuera and Cockle Bay. If it goes ahead these areas would likely be zoned Mixed Housing Suburban.
We have engaged legal and planning expertise to help with these hearings.
Hearings on zoning
Hearings on specific zones will take place in January and February. If you put in submissions supporting or opposing zoning in particular areas you need to make sure you ask to be heard. There are submissions asking for very large areas to be zoned for more intensive residential development
