Information session hosted by the Grey Lynn Business Association
On 15 March, Auckland Council unveiled its draft Unitary Plan – the planning rule book which will shape Auckland’s development over the next 30 years. An extra million people in Auckland is projected by 2040.
Population density has to be increased to accommodate this growth without excessive urban sprawl, and will mean building upwards in selected areas. Listening to word around the area there is a fair amount of confusion and concern amongst some. Here is an opportunity to hear from an expert.
David Wren, an experienced planning professional, has agreed to present an information session for GLBA members.
Venue: Surrey Hotel, Great North Road, Grey Lynn
Time: starts 4.30pm on Tuesday 9 April. The session is expected to last 1 hour
Members: The session is free to members of glba.
Non-members: Non members may attend, at a fee of $20. Or can join up to glba on the night ($65 pa) and have free access to other seminars arranged by glba.

Other local opportunities to hear more about the Unitary Plan
Waitemata Local Board hosted meeting on 18 April at 5.30pm
Civic Forum Central Freeman’s Bay Community Centre
Saturday April 20
10.00am – 2.00pm
52 Hepburn Street, Freeman’s Bay Community Centre
Civic Forums are an opportunity for members of the public to talk to elected representatives and council staff, learn about the Unitary Plan and put forward their ideas. The day will involve presentations on issues relating to Auckland’s future, along with the opportunity to provide feedback on the council’s proposals.
We do not expect you to be an expert on these issues or how council works. We are keen to hear from people who wouldn’t normally get involved, as well as those who have taken part in council consultations in the past. Interpreters will be available to assist people who aren’t confident English speakers – you will be asked what special requirements you have when you register
Auckland Council staff who are experts in a range of subjects relating to the Unitary Plan (from heritage to wetlands and planning to stormwater) will be on hand to provide expert advice and to support the discussion.
A light lunch will be served.
If you would like to take part, please register your attendance using the online registration form
