Last Day for Feedback!

As I am sure you all know the last day for feedback is tomorrow. If you have not submitted feedback it is not too late

Copy and paste the Coalition's bottom lines into an email and send it to 
unitaryplan@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

  • Interim blanket demolition controls on pre 1940’s buildings – where the case for demolition has to be proven, rather than at present where the case for retention must be made. (partially met in the DUP)
  • All demolitions of pre-1940’s buildings require consent and must be publicly notified.
  • Any replacement building must satisfy a design code, requiring sympathetic design, scale and materials to be used. The Auckland Design Manual must be statutory.
  • Local Plans to recognise differing characteristics and issues of each area, to ensure private and public sector development proposals are consistent with local aspirations. Regarding development proposals, Local Plans can change and raise conditions of compliance, public notification requirements, and other standards.
  • Adequate council resources to be allocated to the identification and assessment of heritage and character of an area, as the local Area Plans are completed, and BEFORE intensification rules are applied to an area.
  • Adequate budgets and resources applied within council to build up an experienced and knowledgeable heritage department.
  • Continuing engagement with interested community groups on how to best preserve our heritage.

The Deputy Mayor has promised there will be more collaboration during the period that the feedback is being analysed. The Coalition will make sure that we are part of those discussions.

Great work everyone.

Regards
Sally
