Planning documents, such as the Auckland Unitary Plan (AUP) are constantly being updated. On Rico, we update our references to the AUP when plan changes are made operative.
It is important to note, however, that Plan changes can have legal effect before they are made operative, as explained on the Environment Guide website here.
Plan changes are also annotated throughout the AUP. On Rico, we directly link you to the live planning documents so you can see these as they apply to rules you’re dealing with. If you see a plan change, you can investigate these changes further on the Auckland Council website here.
