Not about us without usDesign Guidelines

Not about us without us !

I asked the Chair of the Waitakere Ranges Local Board, Sandra Coney, if we might have some input.  The answer we haven’t decided !!!

Waitakere Ranges Foothills guide“The Waitakere Ranges Foothills Design Guide assists landowners and design professionals to understand design solutions that, while not being compulsory, will aid in manage the effects of development in the Waitākere Ranges Heritage Area.  This updated version of the guide was adopted by the Waitākere Ranges Local Board on 14 August 2014.”   This ‘guide’ will be referenced by consents and planning staff but we had no say in it!

Now our Local Board is starting to develop another ‘guide’ called ‘Building in the Bush Design Guide’ for the forested parts Waitakere Ranges Heritage Area.

I asked the Chair of the Waitakere Ranges Local Board, Sandra Coney, if we might have some input.  The answer “we haven’t decided”  !!!  Not good enough – not about us without us.

Surely all this is included in the Unitary Plan.

This is not democracy.
