​The Auckland Urban Design Panel was established to provide independent design review of significant projects, for both private and public developments across the region. 

For significant planning projects, it means you can get an independent peer review from the Panel before you apply.

Complex issues can be dealt with, reducing time delays when resource consent applications are lodged. It also means you get consistent advice during the consenting process and, where needed, co-ordination of council departments.​
