Guide for businesses
A new guide to help businesses understand how the proposed unitary plan could affect them has been released.
Shaping a businessfriendly city identifies strong centres, new business land and better transport links as essential for Auckland’s growth.
Deputy mayor Penny Hulse says it is important businesses have their say on the proposed plan.
The document summarises the key aspects relevant to businesses, she says.
‘‘That includes enabl- ing business clustering and the innovation that comes with it, safeguarding existing business land and securing new land for business growth.’’
Submissions on the proposed unitary plan are open until February 28.
The council is urging businesses to have their say on the parts of the plan they support as well as those they want to change.
