The hearings on the Unitary Plan have started. Check out the website here for the Independent Hearing Panel for information on the hearings.The process is very complicated compared with traditional hearings on district plans.
There is a lot of concern about the process and the timetable that the panel has set. Auckland 2040 has made representations to the panel on these issues, especially our concern that it is very difficult for community groups and individuals to participate effectively.
What can you do?
If you made a submission or further submission and asked to be heard, make sure you confirm with the IHP that you want to be heard for each hearing you are involved with. If you have made a submission supporting us or requesting similar changes to the Unitary Plan and would like Auckland 2040 to represent you at the hearings, please let us know by email.
Note – we are only involved in Auckland-wide issues, not specific areas.
It is difficult to work out which hearings relate to issues you have made submissions on. To assist you with working out which hearings you need to attend, we have prepared a step-by-step guide you can find here.
We desperately need financial support to engage experts to assist us at the hearings.
