Unlocking business land

Planning for the development of future business areas in Silverdale West and Dairy Flat is expected to begin before the end of this year.

Auckland Council’s structure plans are the first step in considering how and when Future Urban zoned land should be made available for development and this month Council’s Planning Committee pushed the start button for development of structure plans for Silverdale West and Dairy Flat business land.

The development of these plans is taking place earlier than originally proposed, due to development pressure and community concern over growth directions.

There will be public consultation along the way, and the structure plans are expected to be in place in early 2019.

Once structure plans are finalised, the next step is to ensure that infrastructure funding is in place and plan changes to the Auckland Unitary Plan are prepared to change the current future urban zones to urban zones allowing development.

The Future Urban Land Supply Strategy, adopted last month, identifies the Silverdale West/Dairy Flat business area as being development ready between 2018-2022.
