Here’s your last Property Report diary for 2019.
Auckland Council is unsurprisingly quiet, with no meetings scheduled.
Parliament sits, there are a few auctions, a couple of resource consent hearings will be held and further submissions close on a private plan change.
Among hearings & submissions to check out, I’ve added plan changes this week after realising they were missing from these pages.
While you take a holiday, the Property Report newsletters will too.
The newsletters will be posted out this week – Monday 16, Wednesday 18 & Friday 20 December – and return on Monday 20 January. The following Monday, 27 January, is Auckland Anniversary Day, making it a newsletter-free day.
The diary is normally updated weekly and lists auctions, council meetings & agendas, hearings & submissions, economic release dates, events, Parliament order paper items and securities.
All Auckland Council agendas can be reached via http://infocouncil.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/. The council livestreams (and archives) Town Hall meetings and some other meetings. You can check those at http://councillive.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/.
