Access planning under the Auckland Unitary Plan

Recently the Matakana Trails Trust appealed a decision made by Auckland Council relating to a large rural subdivision. The Trust argued that by not requiring a connecting trail through the subdivision, the Council had not followed the Auckland Unitary Plan. The connecting trail sought by the Trust forms part of the Puhoi to Pakiri Greenways Trail promoted by the Rodney Local Board.

The judge found that under the Auckland Unitary Plan “…failure to provide for integrated transport connectivity can be an adverse effect as well as a failure to meet plan objectives.â€
