Subdividing in a terrace housing and apartment buildings zone

Te wawaetanga takiwā tūnga kāinga tuāpapa me ngā whare noho tāpae

Terrace housing and apartment buildings zone

This is a high-intensity zone enabling a greater intensity of development. This zone provides for urban residential living in the form of terrace housing and apartments of between five to seven storeys.

The zone is predominantly located around metropolitan, town and local centres and the public transport network to support the highest levels of intensification.

Terrace housing and apartment buildings 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 1200 square metres.

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