Minor dwellings: what you need to know
Recent changes to planning rules under the Auckland Unitary Plan provide huge potential in terms of the development of minor or secondary dwellings on larger sites.
The Unitary Plan highlights areas of Auckland where higher density developments can be built - areas where minor dwellings may not have been approved previously.
“The changes open the doors to new possibilities for minor dwellings, work from home or home and income developments on existing residential sites,” The House Company’s Philip Powney says. “It’s a great opportunity to add additional accommodation on sites within existing communities where the infrastructure is already in place.”
