What is the Auckland Unitary Plan?

​The Unitary Plan will help Auckland meet its economic and housing needs by determining:

  • what can be built and where
  • how to create a higher quality and more compact Auckland
  • how to provide for rural activities
  • how to maintain the marine environment.

The Unitary Plan replaces:

  • the former Regional Policy Statement
  • 12 district and regional plans.

The Unitary Plan does not replace the Auckland Council District Plan Hauraki Gulf Islands Section - Operative 2013.
