The Auckland Plan Committee today met for the final draft Unitary Plan workshop before decisions are made later this week.
A legal overview and the draft Section 32 analysis, which is an evaluation of the process undertaken during the development of the plan, were discussed by councillors and local board chairs.
Auckland Plan Committee Chair Penny Hulse says “Today was important in order to give elected members confidence that the plan has been tested and evaluated from a legal perspective and in accordance with the RMA.”
Elected members were also taken through the process that follows notification including the submissions phase, engagement with Aucklanders on the notified plan, and information that will be provided to the public to explain the changes and assist with submissions support.
The Auckland Plan Committee will start making decisions on changes to the draft Unitary Plan on Wednesday this week.
