Silverdale, 2076 East Coast Rd, application by Snowstar Group Ltd (Eduard Ebbinge & Alistair Yates) to establish & operate a ski-slope entertainment facility.
It will have an indoor snowsport arena with associated facilities that include an alpine-theme restaurant & bar, conference facilities & lifestyle retailing designed to accommodate up to 550 people at a time. Submissions close with the Rodney District Council on Thursday 19 September.
The site is on a newly rezoned strip of land between the Silverdale exit of State Highway 1 and the East Coast Rd junction, with the entrance above a golf driving range and new King’s Plant Barn and Fruit World retail outlets. A separate go-kart rink is under construction by the motorway exit.
The property, across the road from the Silverdale Rugby Club and a short distance south of Silverdale village, is among numerous properties between Silverdale & Orewa likely to undergo significant change in the short term.
Silverdale North catchment plan
The district council has just advertised a public display for its Silverdale North stormwater management solutions and catchment plan, for the area north of Wainui Rd, west to the highway & up to the Orewa River.
At the instigation of mayor John Law, and following a series of council-run forums on increasing the mainly rural district’s wealth from other sources, the Silverdale North catchment has been designed to take a major technology park on its western side, as well as more intensive housing on the eastern side.
The council is seeking comment on the catchment plan by Friday 6 September.
