The Auckland Unitary Plan is operative in part
On 29 September 2016, Auckland Council resolved to make the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan 'Operative in part'.
On 8 November 2016, the council gave public notice that the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan shall become 'Operative in part' on Tuesday, 15 November 2016 under:
- section 160 of Local Government (Auckland Transitional Provisions) Act 2010 (LGATPA) and
- clause 20 of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).
The public notice was placed in the New Zealand Herald.
The Auckland Unitary Plan Operative in part text is available in PDF format. You can also view the planning maps. The text will be available in e-plan format at a later date.
This replaces the Annotation of decisions version of Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan that was made available on 4 November 2016.
The Auckland Unitary Plan Operative in part has been annotated to show the parts of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan that are excluded from being operative due to:
(a) The parts that remain subject to Environment Court and High Court appeals under the LGATPA and
(b) The regional coastal plan component of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan requiring the Minister of Conservation approval of that part of the plan. This approval is required under section 152(3)(b) of the LGATPA and clause 18(3) of Schedule 1 of the RMA.
Note: the Hauraki Gulf Islands section of the Auckland District Plan remains operative in full.
Once all appeals are resolved, the council will notify the date on which the plan is fully operative.
