First rezoning land

The first sizeable chunk of Pukekohe land potentially being rezoned from a Future Urban Zone to a Residential/Business/Light Industrial Zone under the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan has been placed on the market for sale.
The 4.3639 hectare site in Pukekohe’s Buckland Road – directly opposite Counties Racing Club and Pukekohe Park Raceway – is currently zoned for rural use. The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan has the land identified as a proposed Future Urban Zone. Auckland Council’s Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan defines Future Urban Zones as areas suitable for supporting the development of new suburban centres – including the provision of schools, healthcare premises, parks, roads, public buildings, public transport services, and housing development.
However, the Pukekohe site owner, along with a group of adjoining land owners, is seeking a residential, business or light industrial zoning for their properties. Plan changes are required to change the zoning from Future Urban Zone, and these zoning requests are currently before Auckland Council.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
