Draft Unitary Plan Feedback

Auckland Council is developing New Zealand’s biggest single resource management plan, known as the Auckland Unitary Plan. A bold and transformational plan, it will become the council’s key tool to manage development on land and water. It will have a direct impact on the shape of the city and the quality of Auckland’s built and natural environment.

Providing consistency and simplified rules, it will replace the existing district and regional plans and policies of the former councils. The Auckland Unitary Plan will be the principal regulatory tool to implement the The Auckland Plan, the council’s overriding 30 year strategy to turn Auckland into the world’s most liveable city.

As part of an enhanced public engagement programme, a political working party and council officers produced a discussion draft that was released to the public for informal feedback on 15 March 2013. After incorporating feedback, a proposed Unitary Plan will go to the council in September 2013 for a decision on notification and formal public consultation.
