The Auckland Unitary Plan has earmarked Franklin as one of the prime Green Fields development areas within the wider Auckland supercity. While zoning changes have created significant opportunities for property owners within our district, anyone carrying out property development must contend with increasingly complex and constantly evolving zoning rules and property law requirements. You can draw on our local expertise for anything from a minor boundary adjustment to a major subdivision to help make your project a success.

Franklin Law has worked on many of Franklin’s successful subdivision projects and employs local solicitors with significant property development experience within the Franklin area. Our local experience means we can form an integral part of your subdivision team no matter the size or scale of your project.

Our property development experts are skilled at drafting and negotiating contracts, drafting restrictive covenants and dealing with local councils and their legal advisors. We have the contacts to be able to negotiate and liaise with infrastructure providers, such as Chorus and Counties Energy, and assist on a practical level with managing your project.
