The Auckland Unitary Plan has presented lucrative opportunities for property owners to profit from subdividing land.
With the rules changed, it’s now possible for many that weren’t previously eligible to take advantage of their space and
begin developing their lots. Throughout Auckland, the Council’s adjustments to city planning legislation have opened up
possibilities for development as they came into effect.
Many Lots Are Now Eligible for Development Under New Rules
The largest factor of the Unitary Plan impacting property owners is in its alterations to minimum site size
restrictions. Across Auckland, a large portion of properties that were previously barred from carrying out development
and subdivision are now eligible to be split into different titles. This means that for those whose land was once
considered too small to be altered for profit, it may now be possible to transform the section.
The potential earnings from property development are mainly determined by the number of titles that can be procured from
a piece of land. In the past, an Auckland resident may have been able to subdivide a section of their property and
separate this into two titles – choosing to either build a house on and sell this new property or to sell it off on its
own. While this path is still possible under the new city planning rules, it is also now an option to construct terraced
units and duplexes to maximise the new titles created. This possibility is due to the Auckland Council’s goal of
supporting concentrated growth in the region and vastly improves the earning potential from land development.
