Hi everyone,

Thanks for visiting Japan Homes blog.

(For Japanese please see at the bottom of this post).

 

There is updated news about building minor dwellings (MD) in Auckland that Resource Consent (RC) for these new buildings needs to be approved by August 19, 2016.

Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan and RC Application

As some of you guys already know Auckland Council is going to introduce a new district plan called “Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan (PAUP)” this year (most likely in September).

Currently there is still on-going talk about the details of the new regulations but most likely PAUP will not accept building MDs in Auckland.

However, there is possibility that a MD attached to a main building may be approved in PAUP but this is being discussed and the outcome is unknown at the moment.

As such, you should consult with professionals (Architects, Town Planner, etc) immediately to apply for RC which is normally processed within 20 working days if you are planning to build a MD.

In addition, once you get RC, Building Consent for your MD will not have any particular deadline related to PAUP.

For your reference I list here what is possibly required for RC application.

-Stormwater report

-Septic report

-Town planner ( to do reports for the Resource Consent application)

-Geotech report

-Survey (to position the dwelling )

-Overland flow path report

-Acoustic report (in close proximity to the airfield)

 

Thanks for reading!!

既に何人かの読者はご存知かもしれませんが、今年オークランド市役所は“Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan (PAUP)”という新しい建築、市街地規制を施工する予定です。

今現在どのような規制を盛り込むかということについて、いまだに検討されているようですが、MDについては今後建設を認めないという方向で固まっているようです。

しかしながら、母屋に増設をしてのMDにかぎり許可される可能性もあるようで、この辺りはまだ検討中で現時点では答えは分かりません。

もし読者の中でMDの建設を考えおられる方がいましたら、すぐに専門家(設計士、Town Plannerなど)に相談し、通常申請してから許可取得まで20営業日ほどかかるRCの申請を迅速に行うことをお勧め致します。

ちなみにですが、RCを取得すればBuilding Consent(建築許可)については、特にPAUPに関して期日の期限はありません。

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.
