Where are we now? Where are we heading?

Notice of Requirement documentation was lodged with Auckland Council in late 2022 to protect the land we need for future transport projects in the North West. The lodgement documents are available for you to read by going to Auckland Council's website.

The Detailed Business Case for the North West recommends that some local roads should be progressed by Auckland Transport at a later stage, rather than through this Notice of Requirement (designation) process.

This means upgrades to Nixon Road, Riverhead Road, Station Road and Northside Drive will be considered as part of Auckland Transport’s regular Regional Land Transport Plan process.

The public hearing and appeals process

Public submissions closed on 24 April. A public hearing, indicatively scheduled for September/October 2023, will be held where the requiring authority (Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and /or Auckland Transport) and all submitters are able to be heard.

Auckland Council will make a recommendation as to whether or not the designation should be confirmed in the Auckland Unitary Plan (with or without modification to the conditions) or be withdrawn.

There will be an opportunity for any submitter to appeal Auckland Council’s decision. Appeals are lodged with the Environment Court.
