The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan is now online, marking its official notification and the start of the formal submission phase, that will run until 28 February 2014.
The plan includes changes based on feedback from 22,000 Aucklanders and the decisions made by Auckland Council’s elected members.
“Today we officially kick off the formal submission phase with a plan that has been developed in partnership with our communities. This gives us a great head start as we enter the next step in the process,” said Deputy Mayor Penny Hulse.
Changes made to the plan since the release of the first draft in March have been summarised in factsheets based on local areas and key topics including residential zones, heights in centres, heritage and the Rural Urban Boundary.
Following the five-month submission phase, there will be further submissions, hearings and appeals that will take place over the next three years.
