The draft Auckland Unitary Plan

Detailed factsheet on proposed residential controls

The draft plan proposes a series of controls on things such as height, density, site coverage and setbacks from boundaries. This is to ensure that new development strengthens the character of residential areas and limits the impact on neighbouring properties, while at the same time providing the greater supply and choice of homes that Auckland needs.

Generally, the greater the density of housing, the greater the number of considerations that have to be taken into account. These include:
