New zon­ing to be pub­licly no­ti­fied

North Harbour News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - AMY BAKER

In­ten­si­fi­ca­tion of a once-ru­ral West Auck­land sub­urb draws closer as no­ti­fi­ca­tion of changes to land zon­ing is ap­proved.

Auck­land Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee ap­proved pub­lic no­ti­fi­ca­tion of the re­zon­ing of 360 hectares of land in When­u­a­pai for in­dus­trial and res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment on Septem­ber 5.

The first precinct to be re­zoned stretches along the north­ern side of the Up­per Har­bour high­way. It in­cludes part of Kauri and Brigham Creek roads, and the western end of Hob­sonville Rd. The area will al­low for around 4000 houses, along with light in­dus­trial and busi­ness ar­eas.

Light in­dus­try is sched­uled for much of the area be­tween Trig Rd and Brigham Creek Rd. Res­i­den­tial zon­ing, in­clud­ing ter­race hous­ing and apart­ment build­ings has now been ap­plied at the western end of Hob­sonville Rd.

Pub­lic no­ti­fi­ca­tion of changes of zon­ing as set out in the Auck­land Uni­tary Plan is the next step in ur­ban­is­ing the area, af­ter ap­proval of When­u­a­pai’s twostage struc­ture plan in Septem­ber 2016. In July, the Govern­ment agreed to lend $300 mil­lion to Auck­land Coun­cil to help ac­cel­er­ate the con­struc­tion of homes, in­clud­ing an up­grade and re­align­ment of Trig Rd. Se­quenced de­vel­op­ment of the first stage of When­u­a­pai’s struc­ture plan is sched­uled to start be­tween 2018-2022.
