Subdivision > Natural environments >
This has resulted in a wide choice of living options for Aucklanders, from flat and well connected, to elevated and outlook-based. Subdivisions should celebrate and reflect these differences instead of hiding or removing them. The most important features of a site should influence the subdivision design. This means that very sloping land will not suit a flat-site-based development, and a development that wants to capitalise on views will not suit a flat plain. For both landform scenarios the designer/developer should anticipate different residential amenities and design accordingly.
