Draft Unitary Plan Māori Purpose Zone Review Report

The following report constitutes a Peer Review of the Māori Purposes Zones within the proposed Auckland Unitary Plan.

This report provides discussion on a number of key issues, with a view to providing greater context to the proposed additions and amendments to the draft provisions.

The Māori Purpose Zone provisions in general provide a culturally supportive and flexible planning framework for the development of both Māori and General land blocks covered by this zone. 

While this report focuses on proposed amendments and additions the author strongly supports the overall content and direction of the Draft Auckland Unitary Plan Māori Purpose Zone provisions.
