Advocacy in a Minute | Auckland's Future Development Strategy
We’re reaching out with questions about Auckland Council’s proposed Future Development Strategy and the delay of Plan Change 78.
Auckland Council’s draft Future Development Strategy is the 30-year plan for urban growth across Auckland. The proposal would see Auckland Council prioritise growth in existing urban areas and restrict current and new greenfield development.
Advocacy Advisor, Logan Rainey, explains more.
Plan Change 78 is the vehicle through which intensification across Auckland will occur. Implementation of Plan Change 78 has now been delayed for 12 months, leaving developers with a high level of uncertainty over what can be built and where.
We’re calling for our Auckland members, ideally with development or planning experience, to aid in our advocacy work by completing a brief three-minute survey. We understand the commercial sensitivity of some of this information and we will treat it with the strictest confidence. This data will be presented collectively and anonymously to Auckland Council; thus, we are not collecting individual names or company information within the survey.
