Know­ing how to read and un­der­stand the Uni­tary Plan is crit­i­cal for those plan­ning on mak­ing a sub­mis­sion on the mas­sive doc­u­ment.

To that end the Auck­land Coun­cil is run­ning a se­ries of open days, start­ing next week, to help peo­ple bet­ter un­der­stand the plan.

The open days will in­clude dis­plays and sem­i­nars on key top­ics, hard copies of the text and maps, in­ter­net ac­cess to the plan and ex­perts on-hand to an­swer ques­tions.

Man­ager of re­gional and lo­cal plan­ning Penny Pir­rit says the open days will be help­ful for any­one want­ing to un­der­stand the pro- posed plan so they can make a sub­mis­sion.

‘‘Coun­cil staff will be at the events to ex­plain how the plan has changed fol­low­ing feed­back on the March 2013 draft.

‘‘They will also be able to walk peo­ple through this more for­mal process of mak­ing a sub­mis­sion,’’ she says.

An open day will be held at the Auck­land Cen­tral Li­brary from 1pm to 8pm on Novem­ber 11.

There will also be open days at Manukau, Hen­der­son, Taka­puna and Franklin.
