The Auckland Urban Design Panel

Good urban design is critical in enabling Auckland to become the world’s most liveable city.Wynyard Crossing

As part of meeting your aspirations for a better built environment, an Auckland Urban Design Panel has been established. This Panel provides independent design review of significant projects, for both private and public developments across the region.

For those significant planning projects, it means you can get independent peer review advice from the Panel before you apply. Complex issues can be dealt with reducing time delays when resource consent applications are lodged.

It also means you get consistent advice during the consenting process and, where needed, co-ordination of council departments.
