New Proposal by Auckland Council for Auckland’s Share of Multi-Storey Housing

New Proposal by Auckland Council for Auckland’s Share of Multi-Storey HousingThe Auckland Council for long has been reworking on the housing densities that was settled in 2013 followed by the argument from the independent hearing panels that the plan did not suffice for providing adequate housing capacity.

In its revised plan the Auckland Council has increased the proposed housing density which will be presented for the consideration of the independent panel next year which will mull over the thirty year blueprint or the Unitary Plan.

In the new proposal, most of the up zoning is planned for the central isthmus as the main focus is on areas that are well connected through public transport. According to the council in spite of the changes that have been proposed, greater than seventy five percent of the residential land in the city will have a limit of one or two storeys.

The share of Auckland residential areas which are exclusively zoned for single dwellings would drop from the current thirty one percent to a little over twenty six percent.

Among the other big change that is proposed is the mixed housing urban zone that permits medium-density up to three storey's high. It will occupy almost seventeen percent share of Auckland which is much more than the eleven percent that was planned earlier.
