Proposed Zone Definitions
These definitions are abridged from Part 2, Chapter D of the Proposed Unitary Plan.
Mixed Housing Suburban 61.1%
This zone is the most widespread residential zone in Auckland. Its density controls allow a moderate level of intensification, while retaining a relatively spacious quality consistent with a suburban residential character, compared to the Mixed Housing Urban and Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings zones. Development within the zone will generally be two storey detached and attached housing in a variety of types and sizes to provide housing choice. The zone encourages new housing types, including attached housing on smaller sites facing the street. To facilitate the efficient use of these sites and promote quality design outcomes, when assessed through the resource consent process, dwellings may have building bulk closer to site boundaries, provided that shading and dominance effects on adjoining sites are minimised.
Mixed Housing Urban 22.9%
This zone is generally located between the Mixed Housing Suburban and the Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings zones. It provides a transition in density between these two zones and allows three storey dwellings in locations close to the rapid and frequent service network. The zone provides for housing in a variety of sizes and forms, including detached dwellings, terrace housing and low-rise apartments, that will increase the supply of housing, create diverse neighbourhoods and provide housing choice.
The zone encourages new housing types, including attached housing on smaller sites facing the street. Through the resource consent process, four or more dwellings at a higher density may be built on large sites with wide road frontages. This is because larger sites are capable of accommodating a wider range of housing types, integrating development into the neighbourhood and achieving high quality on-site amenity.
