Property Council submission on Auckland Council Our Future of Water

We generally supported Auckland Council’s proposed ‘Future of Our Water’ strategy.  We noted the lack of detail on how it will be achieved and that as a key stakeholder we look forward to further engagement.

Auckland Council asked a question at the hearing regarding the ‘Earthworks and Sediment Runoff’ requirements under the Unitary Plan.  We noted we are generally supportive of these requirements and that they are superior to the legacy plans and others around the country.  Members suggested effective monitoring and enforcement is required to ensure the provisions are effective.
