8/11/2016 

At its meeting on Thursday, 29 September 2016, the Auckland Council resolved to make parts of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan ‘operative in part’ and requested that the Chief Executive complete, as soon as practicable, the necessary statutory steps to publicly notify the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part). 

Pursuant to section 160 of the Local Government (Auckland Transitional Provisions) Act 2010 (LGATPA) and clause 20 of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA), the Auckland Council hereby gives notice that the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan shall become ‘Operative in Part’ on Tuesday, 15 November 2016.

The Auckland Unitary Plan Operative in part is the first combined plan for the Auckland region and is made up of a Regional Policy Statement, Regional Plan (including a Regional Coastal Plan) and a District Plan. 

Exclusions

The Auckland Unitary Plan Operative in part has been annotated to identify those provisions of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan which are excluded from operative approval under section 160 of the LGATPA and clause 20 of Schedule 1 of the RMA, namely: 

(a) Those provisions that remain subject to Environment Court and High Court appeals under the LGATPA; and
(b) The Regional Coastal Plan component of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan (due to the separate requirement for the Minister of Conservation's approval of that part of the Plan under section 152(3)(b) of the LGATPA and clause 18(3) of Schedule 1 of the RMA).
