The six terraced houses at Buckley Avenue are part of a wider masterplanned development at Hobsonville Point. The redevelopment of the old air base is intended to become a mixed use urban village which will incorporate schools, shops, a marine industrial precinct and a wide range of house types. The housing has been developed as a large series of blocks called ‘super-lots’ which have been sold by the Hobsonville Land Company (HLC) to four separate building companies. In 2010 Universal Homes purchased 13,000m2 from the HLC to develop a range of 3 and 4 bed houses. A key driver was to ensure the delivery of high quality houses, that are visually appealing, provide variety in the streetscape, but still have a visual coherence with their neighbour. The properties on 59-64 Buckley Avenue have been designed as energy efficient, low maintenance houses for a young family, or for older ‘empty nesters’ who have sold their existing house.
The terraces comprise of two corner units and four courtyard houses.

The Auckland Design Manual provides supplementary guidance to the Unitary Plan on design matters,
which will be updated by the Council from time to time. The Manual is not part of the Unitary Plan
and the Unitary Plan doesn’t incorporate the Manual by reference in the terms of the provisions of
Part 3 of Schedule 1 to the Resource Management Act 1991. While the Manual sits outside the Unitary Plan,
advice notes are occasionally included in the text of the Unitary Plan
to alert the reader to the existence of relevant guidance in the Unitary Plan.
