Re-zoning of MOE land in Auckland Council's Unitary Plan process

Julie Fairey made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

The request was successful.

From: Julie Fairey

Dear Ministry of Education,

I am requesting written confirmation of information received
verbally that the Ministry of Education has requested that all school and public tertiary institutions be given under-lining zoning reflecting surrounding zones through the Unitary Plan process by Auckland Council.

I would additionally like to know:

1. How was the request communicated by the MOE and who did it come from? Ideally I would like a copy of the request

2. What rationale has the MOE given to change the zoning approach for public education sites in the Unitary Plan? Why is this necessary? In particular why has the Ministry requested that the sites not be zoned to reflect the current use of the land, i.e. educational, as opposed to seeking the zoning to reflect surrounding zones?

3. Has the MOE pursued a similar approach with any other local authorities regarding giving public education sites underlying zoning?

I look forward to receiving a response. I can be contacted on 021 287 9900 or by email (email preferred).

Yours faithfully,

Julie Fairey
