Some 95,000 primary submission points have been lodged on the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan, with further submissions due by 22 July. The outcome of the hearings process into those submissions will affect the residential, commercial and leisure aspirations of Aucklanders for years to come as well as providing a robust policy framework for the management of natural and physical resources in the Auckland region. 

This On Demand webinar provides an update on the Proposed Plan since our October 2013 seminar. It will address the timetable and management system for the first tranche of pre-hearing meetings, mediations and hearings; identify key issues and cross-issues that are emerging from the submissions process; and how the bespoke hearings process is likely to operate, having regard to the sheer volume of submissions and the timing constraints imposed by the relevant legislation. Take advantage of this opportunity to hear about what’s happening from lawyers who act for Auckland Council and developers respectively.   

Who should view?

Commercial, property and resource management lawyers. Planning consultants would also benefit from attending.
