The hearings on the Regional Policy Statement have started.
There is a lot of concern about the process and the timetable that the panel has set. The IHP is doing its best to make it easier for community groups to be involved within the constraints of the timetable
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.
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.
The process can seem overwhelming for community groups and individuals. If you made a submission or further submission please stay involved. Contact the IHP support staff with any concerns. 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 and also advise the IHP of this.
Note – we are only involved in Auckland-wide issues, not specific areas.
