Have your say and help shape the Waiheke Area Plan

Led by the Waiheke Local Board, the area plan is a 30 year vision to help shape the future of Waiheke and the other inner Hauraki Gulf Islands (Rangitoto, Motutapu, Motukorea, Rakino, Ponui, Pakatoa, Rotoroa and several smaller islands) to ensure a more sustainable and liveable future. Having a shared vision will help support the key challenges of population growth, shared prosperity and environmental degradation at a local level, guiding future decision making and investments.

The primary focus of this draft area plan is Waiheke Island where most people live. While the wider Hauraki Gulf marine area is not part of the study area, its health and vitality is fundamental to the wellbeing of people and ecosystems. This close relationship is recognised throughout the draft area plan. The Te Ao Māori (Māori world view) provides a holistic way of understanding our environment and is woven through this draft area plan. Information from the Ngāti Paoa and Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki strategic plans has formed a valuable understanding of local iwi values and concerns.

What we'd like your feedback on

  • the general direction of the plan
  • the proposed vision
  • challenges around housing needs and maintaining clean waters in local streams, wetlands and the coast
  • anything that we missed that you think should be included in the Draft Waiheke Area Plan

When you can have your say

You can have your say from 13 July to 13 August 2020.

    Is subdivision of property in Oneroa on the agenda in The District Plan .

    Patricia Wise asked 3 months ago

    The Draft Waiheke Area Plan is looking to guide integrated and transformational decision-making and investments.  It does not set rules for controlling development such as subdivision rules or allocate funding.  The next review of the Auckland Council District Plan – Hauraki Gulf Islands Section – Operative 2018 will comprehensively review all district plan provisions including subdivision.  No date has yet been set for the timing of this review.
