Future Development Strategy Submission (FDS) – An imbalance between brownfield and greenfield development for Auckland
The recent release of a new Draft Future Development Strategy (FDS) for Auckland has drawn much interest, and concern. Our submission sheds light on critical concerns surrounding Auckland’s development trajectory and emphasised the need for a balanced and well-considered approach to ensure a sustainable and thriving urban landscape.
We discuss how Auckland Council could incentivise the creation of ecological corridors across the region.
Auckland Council Future Development Strategy. The FDS introduces major changes which will have a significant impact on landowners. We discuss the implications for your property.
Auckland Council has introduced a plan change (Plan Change 78) that incorporates the new Medium Density Residential Standards (MDRS). Over much of Auckland’s residential urban area, and subject to meeting the new standards, the new housing rules now enable 3 storeys and 3 dwellings per site as of right.
Auckland Council has recently given notice of several Notice of Requirements (NoRs) to protect land for future implementation of strategic transport corridors/infrastructure. These NoRs relate to the Supporting Growth Alliance which is a collaboration between AT and NZTA to plan transport investment in Auckland’s Future Urban Zone (“FUZ”) areas over the next 10 to 30 years. We discuss what you need to know as an affected property owner.
