At the Extra- ordinary meeting of the Auckland Council on 24 February, the Council voted by 13 to 8 to withdraw the Out of Scope zoning changes. This was a huge win for us and for democracy in Auckland.

We have our main hearing regarding residential zoning on 24 March. The main concerns we have, now that the Out of Scope changes have been withdrawn, relate to the generic zoning changes being sought by some submitters to bring back changes on a similar scale to the Out of Scope changes and with the same issues of lack of consultation with affected parties.

The scale of the changes at this late stage in the process is unprecedented in New Zealand planning history and is, we believe, an abuse of the process set up for the Unitary Plan.
