Over 9000 Unitary Plan submissions soon to go online

21 May 2014

Over 9000 Unitary Plan submissions soon to go online

The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan received over 9,000 submissions containing more than 100,000 individual requests for changes, the Unitary Plan Committee heard at yesterday’s meeting.

The submissions and a summary of the decisions requested by submitters will be notified on 11 June and available to search online at aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/unitaryplan

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

Some of the more than 9,000 submissions received contain only one page, but others cover many hundreds of complex changes to the proposed plan.

Hard copies of summary of the submissions will be available at most libraries and council offices. Individual submissions can be downloaded from the website after June 11 or will be made available on request.

Online information will be available for searching by submission number, submitter name, street name and address, and by topic such as rezoning, residential zones, heritage, overlays, urban growth, rural zones and transport.

The most frequently addressed topic in submissions is rezoning in the central city and isthmus.

"The summary report is a further step on the Unitary Plan journey and is the largest report of its kind under the Resource Management Act," said committee chair Councillor Alf Filipaina. "Input from the public and from our Local Boards is key to securing a successful outcome for the city's future."

He added: "All submissions and further submissions will be considered by the Independent Hearings Panel which will conduct hearings until July 2016 when it makes its final recommendations to the council."

This succession was well planned. Lets not forget that English was told by Key in September of his intention to resign, and English was the only member of Cabinet entrusted with that information before it was sprung on everyone else on Monday morning. More>>

Latest: Judith Collins and Jonathan Coleman have withdrawn from the leadership race, leaving Bill English the only candidate to replace John Key as Prime Minister.
