Auckland Unitary Plan declaration proceedings

​The purpose of declarations

Declarations are a type of application made to the Environment Court.

The purpose of a declaration is to get judicial direction on certain disputed matters, which may include:

  • the existence or extent of any function, power, right or duty under the RMA
  • whether a provision in the Auckland Unitary Plan carries out a national policy statement or national planning standard
  • whether there is any inconsistency between Auckland Unitary Plan provisions
  • whether an act or omission contravenes the RMA, a rule in a plan, a rule for a designation or heritage order, or a resource consent.

For more information, see sections 310 to 313 of the Resource Management Act 1991.
