Dear Grace Ray,

Thanks for the prompt reply. Sorry I wasn’t more clear in my initial request.

By correspondence regarding the remit I mean correspondence that relates to how the survey process was defined, why it was defined in that way and how it changed over time (if it did indeed change).

By correspondence about preferred outcomes I mean any correspondence that mentions what the end result of the survey was expected or preferred to be. For example, whether it should result in Special Character Areas that are substantially the same as equivalent areas defined in the Auckland Unitarty Plan.

If you think it we’ll takeaway while to gather all the correspondence, then please send me what you can now and then update me at a later date. I’d like to have the methodologies ASAP, so I can use them in response to the preliminary plan, which is due before 9th May.

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Punnett

Dear Grace Ray,

My interest in the survey is not limited to the way individual properties were scored, it also extends to the choice of area boundaries and the choice of the 75% and 66% coverage figures that were used to determine whether an area had enough strongly contributing properties to be marked as a Special Character Area (SPC).

Please include correspondence relating to those in your response. If you'd prefer me to make a seperate request for those details, then please let me know and I will make a seperate request.

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Punnett
