    would sure help address the affordability debate everyone keeps ranting about with more subdivision in prime spots but the government wants to delay these changes for 3 years. Not sure if they have other agendas and backs to scratch on this. Doesnt seem logical to wait that long. So much for their free market policies, only when it suits them it seems.

    yes turning one home in to 2 homes will be interesting to see what becomes of this.

    Thanks

    On the viewer in the layers field at the bottom there is an icon "view the full legend". Click this at up should pop up the colour key.

    Cheers RHarris

    So basically there will be 3 residential Zones
    - Single House
    - Mixed Housing
    - Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings

    Obviously the "Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings" will become the most valuable land for its development potential.

    What does "Mixed Housing" actually mean? I am guessing this will be more valuable land than "Single House" zoned property.

    With particular reference to Pt Chevalier area south of Meola Rd or Walker Rd:

    A site with an original doer upper 3 bedroom bungalow or ex state that has a total land area of say 600m2 to 700m2 is not currently worth any more than about $800,000 to $850,000 if it is in the Res 6a zone.

    If the Unitary Plan was active right now and that same property was in the Mixed Housing zone it would be worth, in separate lots, around $750,000 for the doer upper on a front site and the rear section would be worth around $500,000 for a total of around $1,250,000 less subdivision costs of say $90,000 = $1,160,000 less original purchase price a developer would be prepared to pay.

    So the question is how much will the property be worth under the new zone versus the old zone?

    Probably increase in value by $100,000 to $150,000 immediately.

    Of course this will all depend on how many people suddenly want to sell or subdivide off the back yard - a surge of subdivision activity may see an over supply of sites which could impact on values - hard to predict the outcome but would be interested in other contributors thoughts.
    Has anybody found other areas like this?

    I'm looking forward to seeing how Henderson, Massey and Takapuna turn out.

    Zone Dwellings
    Single House One dwelling per site
    Mixed Housing One dwelling per 300mē net site area where up to four dwellings are proposed

    No density limits apply where five or more dwellings are proposed and the requirements of clause 4.3.1.3.1.2.a and b are met
    Large Lot One dwelling per site
    Rural and coastal settlements One dwelling per 4000mē net site area

    2. In the Mixed Housing zone:
    a. where three or four dwellings are proposed on a site, the site must at least 15m wide:
    i. at the road boundary
    ii. for at least 80 per cent of the length of its side boundaries.
    b. no density limit applies where five or more dwellings are proposed and the site:
    i. has a minimum net site area of 1200mē
    ii. is at least 20m wide:

    • at the site frontage
    • for at least 80 per cent of the length of its side boundaries.

    c. development that exceeds the maximum density or does not comply with clause 4.3.1.3.1.1 or 4.3.1.3.1.2 is a discretionary activity
    d. this rule does not apply where a dwelling is converted into two dwellings as a permitted activity complying with clause 4.3.1.3.3.

    You have to drill down deep to get this info.

    And so a 600sq site in Grey Lynn Westmere - can now be subdivided for 2 dwellings - as Ross says.

    At least thats how I think that reads.
