Notices of requirement to designate land (NoR)
A notice of requirement is an interim notice that protects land for a designated purpose until the designation is final. It is most often a public consultation but can be limited if appropriate.
A designation is a planning technique used by requiring authorities. These can be:
- Ministers of the Crown
- local authorities i.e. Auckland Council
- network utilities.
