In the next 30 years new communities will be established in
future urban areas. These will be on the fringe of Auckland's
existing urban area, and in rural and coastal settlements.
Forming new communities
Around 15,000 hectares of rural land and coastal areas that could accommodate approximately 137,000 homes and 67,000 jobs over the next 30 years have been identified as suitable for urban development.
Expansion into greenfield areas will be managed within the Rural Urban Boundary.
Development will be sequenced, and timed for when these areas will be 'live zoned' and the necessary
bulk infrastructure is in place. The
Future Urban Land Supply Strategy (PDF 3.98MB) outlines this approach in detail.
