Minimum car parking rules removed

Auckland Council has today, 11 February 2022, amended the Auckland Unitary Plan to remove minimum car parking requirements for developments across the city, as directed by central government.  

The government has changed how councils nationwide can provide for on-site car parking, one of a number of new requirements set out in its National Policy Statement on Urban Development (NPSUD).

The NPSUD directs all New Zealand councils to remove minimum car parking rules from their planning documents by 20 February 2022, except for accessible, or mobility, car parking which councils can still require.

John Duguid, General Manager Plans and Places, says the council is required by law to implement the NPSUD.

Have your say on plans for The Landing

The Landing is located on the seaward side of Tamaki Drive. Orakei Local Board is seeking input from various communities who use the area to help consider the current 2013 plan’s effectiveness in being able to address stakeholder issues and ensure open space outcomes continue to meet current and future (2021-2041) community plus regional needs.

Located just 4km from the city centre, nestled between Pokanoa Point and Ōkahu Bay beach, The Landing accommodates a range of water-based sports clubs and provides infrastructure for the public (boat ramp, pontoons, trailer parking, etc) to access the Waitematā Harbour.  It also includes a commercial haul-out and hardstand (boat yard) facility as well as providing space for boat owners to maintain and service their craft.

Growing demand is putting pressure on The Landing and facilities located there, and so Ōrākei Local Board is looking into the need to refresh the 2013 Landing Concept Plan (Pathways to the Sea), so that the document can continue to guide management decisions for growing community needs as well as ensuring that it remains in line with a shared vision for the area.
