Aucklanders have until 5pm on Sunday (17 July) to give their feedback on what they value most about the region’s freshwater, Auckland Council says, helping to inform upcoming changes to the Auckland Unitary Plan (AUP). These changes will affect how we can use and develop land where freshwater is affected, i.e. sediment discharges; and protect freshwater to ensure it is allocated appropriately and that threatened species can flourish.
