Subdividing in a mixed housing suburban zone

Te wawaetanga takiwā kāinga noho ā-rohenga tāone hanumi

Mixed housing suburban zone

This is the most widespread residential zone, and covers many established suburbs and some greenfield areas.

Buildings in this zone are usually one or two storey, mainly stand-alone, and are set back from site boundaries with landscaped gardens.

Mixed housing suburban zone subdivision guidelines

If you want to create a new lot, under the Auckland Unitary Plan, each site in this zone needs to be a minimum of 400 square metres, although there are some specific exceptions.

You should expect that a comprehensive land use consent would be required to determine the specific detail of any higher density development on the site before subdivision would be approved.
