The Auckland Design Manual provides supplementary guidance to the Unitary Plan on design matters,
which will be updated by the Council from time to time. The Manual is not part of the Unitary Plan
and the Unitary Plan doesn’t incorporate the Manual by reference in the terms of the provisions of
Part 3 of Schedule 1 to the Resource Management Act 1991. While the Manual sits outside the Unitary Plan,
advice notes are occasionally included in the text of the Unitary Plan
to alert the reader to the existence of relevant guidance in the Unitary Plan.
