Unitary Plan recommended for notification
Councillors today recommended that the revised version of the draft Unitary Plan be approved for notification and the formal submissions phase.
Auckland Plan Committee Chair Penny Hulse says the recommendation underlined the many important decisions made by elected members over the last two weeks.
“Today’s decision is a significant milestone in the Unitary Plan process. We now have a plan that prior to going out for public submissions has already been shaped and changed based on the feedback of thousands of Aucklanders.”
The proposed Unitary Plan which includes amendments to the maps, policies and rules will now go to Auckland Council’s Governing Body who will be asked to officially endorse the plan for notification.
Once approved, a date will be set for notification which marks the start of the formal public submission phase, and the next opportunity for people to have their say.
The Governing Body will meet on Tuesday 10 September.
