AUCKLAND 2040 UNITARY PLAN SUBMISSION
Auckland 2040 has finalised its submission on the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan which you can find below. We have also done a summary of the main points of our submission.
We welcome supporters of our submission. Please submit in support.
Auckland 2040 is committed to ensuring that the future development of Auckland under the Auckland Unitary Plan balances the need for intensification with protecting the character of our residential areas.
Auckland 2040 is currently working on a detailed submission on the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan, primarily focussed on the Mixed Housing Suburban Zone. We still have major concerns about the type of development that will result from the rules in the Proposed Plan, particularly since, under the proposed rules, design requirements will apply to very few residential developments in this zone. They will only apply to developments of 4 dwellings or more. With the increase in the bulk of the buildings and coverage allowed under the proposed rules there is real potential for some very poor developments which will be a blight on the character of the residential areas covered by the Mixed Housing Suburban Zone.
WHAT AUCKLAND 2040 HAVE ACHIEVED
We have summarised the changes in the rules as a result of the Auckland Planning Committee meetings in the last weeks. It does not take into account decisions on Monday 2 September as we need to confirm some of the details of height limit changes in some areas.
HOW COUNCILLORS VOTED ON ISSUES THAT AFFECT YOU
During the meeting of the Auckland Plan Committee on 28-30 August to consider changes to the draft Unitary Plan, Councillors considered a package of amendments proposed by Councillor Ann Hartley which Auckland 2040 supported. While quite a few of these were passed, several were lost. We have obtained the voting results for the most significant of these.
