The Auckland Regional Council has opposed a proposal to subdivide 3ha at Waimauku into 5 lots, saying the proposal is before its time as the land is zoned future urban.
The development proposal is:
62 Muriwai Rd, application by John Grafton to create 4 residential lots of 1500-6800mÂ² & a 1.9ha balance lot.
Regional policy analyst Blair Firmston said in his report to the regional council’s strategy & planning committee on 10 May the proposed Rodney district plan made it clear this land, zoned future urban, shouldn’t be opened up for development until untility services can be provided to it.
Although the subdivision would allow for a future road, proposed by the Kumeu-Huapai-Waimauku structure plan, to go through the balance lot, “it would still compromise the potential for the site to be efficiently subdivided at an urban density in the future.”
