What is a design statement?Print

​​​​As a tool to help support a quality design process and outcomes Auckland Council promotes a five-part design statement model. These firstly explain the analysis undertaken of the projects context (both the site and the surrounding neighbourhood), secondly a summary of the key components of the planning context (district plan etc.) as relevant to the site, thirdly the primary opportunities and constraints identified from the analysis and finally an explanation of how the proposed design responds to them.  The following sections provide an overview of each part of a design statement and provide an example drawing as a guide.  ​​​
