|A big week for heritage decisions in Auckland
We have come to the end of a week that saw a rather overwhelming array of decisions being made as Councillors work through the final changes to the Auckland Unitary Plan.
But, wait! Before your eyes glaze over at the words “Council” and “Unitary Plan” please stick with us, there are some big issues to get our heads around…
On Wednesday there was the hugely disappointing decision to delist all sites of significance to mana whenua, against the advice of council planners.
On Friday zoning changes were confirmed which make other blocks surrounding the Ōtuataua Stonefields more vulnerable to development. In better news, the proposed rezoning of Crater Hill was voted down. More on these decisions below.
Also in this edition, another chance to learn about the Ōtuataua Stonefields with a Ranger Walk next Tuesday, and we report on a win in the Environment Court for the Three Kings campaign.
