Auckland Unitary Plan submissions online

Auckland Unitary Plan submissions online

More than 9,400 submissions on the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan received during the five-month formal consultation period are now online.

Along with the original submissions, a summary report that captures each of the 93,600 requests is now available. The report is the largest of its kind since the Resource Management Act came into effect in 1991.

The most frequently addressed topics in the submissions included rezoning, residential rules, urban growth, and business rules.

Unitary Plan Committee Chair Councillor Alf Filipaina says official notification of the submission report is one more step completed in the process.

"Today is another milestone for the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan. We now have all the input from our communities available on council’s website and have officially kicked off the further submission phase,” he said.

The submissions can be searched by submitter details, or by themes such as air quality, business, residential, earthworks, natural hazards, flooding and transport.

People now have 30 working days to make a further submission if they are a person with an interest greater than the general public or represent a matter of public interest.

Hard copies of the summary of decisions requested report will be available at selected Auckland libraries, service centres and local board offices.

To view the submissions and for information on the further submission phase visit www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/unitaryplan
