The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan occasionally refers to publications that act as a measure to help applicants comply with rules or provisions in the plan. These publications are known as 'material incorporated by reference'.
Submissions on the material incorporated by reference closed on 20 September 2013.
Most of the publications are available for viewing through the links below. You can also request a copy of the material incorporated by reference (with the exception of standards) on a CD through council service centres, libraries or local board offices, or by calling 09 301 0101.
Auckland Council is unable to provide copies of standards (New Zealand and international) due to matters of copyright. These must be obtained directly from the source. We have provided links below.
