The Local Government (Auckland Transitional Provisions) Act 2010 (LGATPA) process allowed the Panel to make recommendations to the council that are beyond the scope of submissions made on the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan (PAUP) i.e. 'out of scope' recommendations. The council, in making its decisions, has accepted the out of scope recommendations.
There is a specific right of appeal available in relation to decisions made by the council that accept the Panel's out of scope recommendations (see section 156(3), LGATPA). See Rights of appeal.
The Panel's recommendation reports and maps explain how to identify the out of scope recommendations. See Appendix 3 of the Report to Auckland Council overview of recommendations and the Panel's GIS viewer, with properties depicted with a bold black outline indicating a change to zoning.
