Unitary Plan in Grey Lynn

 Information session hosted by the Grey Lynn Business Association

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.

Please rsvp to info@glba.co.nz if you wish to attend

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
