Development Phases

Changes to the Unitary Plan.

The AUP is changing and Auckland Council has released preliminary proposed changes in response to the National Policy Statement on Urban Development and the Enabling Housing Supply Act requirements - Medium Density Residential Standards MDRS. The intent is to enable higher-density housing across Auckland and some 'up-zoning' of urban areas. 


There are new zoning and removal of some existing zones. Some Heritage protected and Special Character houses may have these overlays removed.

The MDRS will replace existing Unitary Plan controls and will enable us to develop sites more effectively. We also expect to see even more accommodating developments than the MDRS for the existing THAB zone.

If you'd like to see how your site could benefit from upcoming rules, please get in touch and our team will be happy to help.
