Is your section sub dividable under the new unitary plan?

The Unitary Plan rationalises the city's 99 old residential zones down to the following six:

* Single House - allows a single house on a single lot

* Mixed Housing Suburban - allows a mix of types of homes up to two storeys

* Mixed Housing Urban - allows a mix of housing types up to three storeys, and more density

* Terrace Housing and Apartment - allows for apartments from four to six storeys, and terraced houses

* Large Lot Residential - land that has physical or landscape constraints and is generally not serviced

* Rural and Coastal Settlement - applies to small rural and coastal villages, provides for single dwellings on a lot.

The Single House zone requires a minimum lot size of 600 square metres.
