EDS releases its summary on proposed Auckland Unitary Plan

The Environmental Defence Society is currently preparing its submission on the proposed Auckland Unitary Plan.

“The Auckland Unitary Plan process is the largest planning exercise ever undertaken in New Zealand. It will determine the future of New Zealand’s largest city,” said Gary Taylor, Chairman of EDS.

“To assist individuals and groups, we have prepared a summary of the key issues which will be covered in EDS’s detailed submission.

“We invite individuals and groups to use these key points to inform the preparation of their own submissions.

“The proposed Auckland Unitary Plan is a large document but it is important that everyone is able to have a say.

“We also welcome any constructive feedback from community groups, resource management professionals, or our members and supporters on our draft. Any comments will be carefully considered when we finalise our submission.

“Submissions close on Friday 28 February,” Mr Taylor concluded.
