New consenting data shows the Unitary Plan is working by providing housing options in the areas where Aucklanders want
to live, with more than 90 per cent of dwellings being consented within Auckland’s existing urban area.
The figures also showed that in the year ending December 2018, 10,637 dwellings were ‘completed’ by having a Code
Compliance Certificate (CCC) issued, setting a new record for building activity in a 12-month period on Auckland Council
“The Unitary Plan removed much of the regulation around density and since it became operational we’ve seen most of
Auckland’s housing growth happening within urban areas.” - Penny Pirrit, Director of Urban Growth and Housing.
