Updated: Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 5-11 November 2018

Updated 7 November 2018 with Auckland Council regulatory committee agenda links:
Auckland Council’s planning committee has a number of important items on its agenda on Tuesday – starting with public input (from the proposers) on the latest central waterfront proposal, another on Unlock Panmure, and a third on the metropolitan centre plan as it affects Papakura.

Council staff have a long list of changes to be made to the unitary plan – mostly small fixes, but I haven’t gone right through them. One that will be contentious concerns the special character areas overlay, in response to an Environment Court declaration.
Earlier story, 12 September 2018: Council wants overlay precedence over zone rules, even after court findings

There’s also a report on the proposed regional public transport plan – the council version of how it ought to be, distinct from the Auckland Transport version of these issues, which is about how to do it.

A report to the council’s strategic procurement committee contains an update on the $1 billion of central city capital projects the council has its budget for the next 10 years.

Among consent applications open to submissions, one is for an extension to the Half Moon Bay marina, a second is for the works to unscramble the entrances to Warkworth from State Highway 1, and a third is the public safety & nuisance bylaw, which contains a council proposal to ban fireworks.

The diary is updated weekly and lists auctions, council meetings & agendas, hearings & submissions, economic release dates, events, Parliament order paper items and securities.
