The Unitary Plan
Auckland's predicted growth is one million people over the next 30 years. This means that more than 600 people per week will be born, move here or come back for the opportunities and quality of life Auckland offers. The Unitary Plan is a document prepared by the new Supercity to allow Auckland to accommodate this growth through proper planning and quality development. Some of the proposals are controversial. It is very important that Aucklanders take advantage of their right to make their views known about the most far reaching proposals ever advanced in this city.
The East Coast Bays
The East Coast Bays is a wonderful place to live. It has its own style centred around outstanding beaches. I have resided here for more than 30 years and have a great appreciation for just how special this area is, and how much it means to the people who live here.
Along with other suburbs in Auckland, we too will experience substantial growth in the coming years. The Unitary Plan sets out a vision for the East Coast Bays that will, in some way, affect us all. I am always concerned with any plans to develop the East Coast Bays, and I have been paying great attention to just how the Unitary Plan sets out the future development of this area.
A number of people have contacted my electorate office requiring information about the Unitary Plan, as well as voicing their concerns over how it affects their property and neighborhood. I understand that it is not easy for everybody to access or locate Unitary Plan information and therefore I have included on this page some direct links to Auckland Council websites that provide further information on the matter.
In the new proposed Unitary Plan, released on the 30 September 2013, there have been numerous changes to the plan for the local areas as a result of the community feedback and elected representative input. I would recommend that you take the time to open the below links to see how the plan for your area may have changed.
