Open Days for the proposed Auckland Unitary Plan

UPDATE:  IT’S 6 PM 18 NOVEMBER FOR RURAL AND WAITAKERE RANGES.  REGISTER YOUR INTEREST BY FOLLOWING LINK BELOW.

I know. Again.  Another Meeting.  But it’s the rules for Auckland and Oratia and your property!  And once it’s locked in it will be hard to change.  So lets get it right.  18 November Old Council Building.

Unitary Plan Open Days

The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan is now open for submissions until 28 February 2014. Auckland Council is holding six open days around Auckland during November, where you can find out more about the proposed plan and hear what changes have been made as a result of feedback during the informal engagement period earlier this year.

The open days will feature displays on specific issues and areas, printed copies of the plan’s text and maps, access to view the plan online and experts on hand to answer questions. There will also be seminars on a range of topics such as residential zones, heritage and the environment as well as an opportunity to learn how to find your way around the online plan.

To find out more about the programme for each event and to register your interest to attend, click on the links below. Each open day will run from 1-8pm and you can drop in at a time that is convenient to you:

While we understand that there might be a desire for more presentations or events across Auckland, the council has more limitations during this statutory submissions phase. This is because the process of receiving, considering and hearing submissions is independent, must be transparent and treat all parties who may wish to make a submission equally. As such, council officers are not able to receive requests for changes to the proposed plan, or provide a view on suggestions for changes outside of the formal process. We therefore encourage you to attend one of these six open days.

If you have any queries, contact us on 09 301 0101 or email unitaryplan@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

To see how the plan is progressing and to have your say, please go towww.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/unitaryplan. You can view factsheets on the key issues and your local area, as well as an overview of the plan (which is also available in Māori, Chinese, Korean, Samoan and Tongan).

We hope to see you there
