URGENT Action Required: National Policy Statement on Urban Development and Special Character Areas

The Future! 37 Upland Road gone

The Past! View from Mt Hobson, 1940 (Auckland Libraries Heritage Collections 1370-33-1)

Remuera Heritage and the Ōrākei Local board continue to advocate for retained special character areas, challenging Council’s approach and looking at alternative ways of optimising qualifying matter opportunities under the centrally driven housing enabling regime.

Things are coming to a crunch with our governing body needing to approve a proposed plan change for notification on 20 August 2022.  Read more.

If you disagree with what Auckland Council is proposing, then nominate your property to be added to the Historic Heritage List asap. And email the Heritage Manager Noel Reardon directly about your concerns over the removal in Remuera of the Special Character Area Overlay and about your wish to nominate your property to be added to the council’s Historic Heritage Schedule.

Email: Noel.Reardon@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz
Also, copy Troy.Churton@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz, Scott.Milne@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz, desley.simpson@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

So that our voices are heard before the 30th June 2022. Just saying that you wish to do this is enough at this stage. Remuera Heritage can help you with this process, if you wish.
