Auckland Council’s planning committee approved 4 plan changes yesterday, at its first meeting for the year.
The committee then went on to debate the merits of the Government’s Urban Development Bill, largely finding fault with the override powers the Government would grant itself.
There was a common perception that the Government was enabling potential conflicts in Auckland which it could avoid, after the region had undergone a decade of drafting a unitary plan (now almost fully operative) required as a result of central government structural changes.
I’ll have more on that debate on Friday.
Meanwhile, here’s the list of approved plan changes:
- Plan change 4, correcting technical errors & anomalies
- Private plan change 6, rezoning 83ha at Drury West from future urban to a combination of residential – mixed housing urban & mixed housing suburban zones, and to extend the Drury 1 precinct provisions (with amendments) to the land
- Plan change 18, Tamaki open space rezoning
- Private plan change 19, St Johns, 90 Felton Mathew Avenue.
The relevant agenda items:
- 10, Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) – Request to Make Plan Change 4 (Correction to Technical Errors and Anomalies in the Auckland Unitary Plan), and Plan Change 18 (Tamaki Open Space Rezoning) Operative
- Plan Change 18 decision maps
- 11, Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) – Request to make Private Plan Change 6 (Auranga) fully operative
