Plans to transform Drury and Pukekohe adopted

Plans to support significant future business and residential development in Drury-Opāheke and Pukekohe-Paerata to help tackle Auckland’s unprecedented growth have been adopted by Auckland Council.

The structure plans – which provide a long-term framework for managing sustainable land use for urban development – cover 1900 hectares immediately surrounding Drury-Opāheke and a further 1300 hectares around Pukekohe-Paerata. The land is zoned Future Urban.

Over the next 30 years, the plans could facilitate about 22,000 homes in Drury-Opāheke and 12,500 dwellings in the Pukekohe-Paerata area, accommodating up to 100,000 people.

They are the result of community and stakeholder feedback on draft proposals in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
