Council clears Wairoa River maritime village

Published 7 September 2007Manukau City Council’s hearings committee has decided to generally uphold the district plan change which allows for the creation of the Wairoa River maritime village.

The committee received more than 1000 public submissions on the village proposal. Submitters now have 30 working days to decide if they will appeal the decision to the Environment Court.

The Wairoa Canal Development Partnership – a successor to the property interests of Force Corp Ltd – sought approval for private plan change 13 in 2005, to establish a new coastal settlement  based on a canal housing scheme in the lower reaches of the Wairoa River, 5km north-west of Clevedon, between North Rd & the river. Force Corp first put its proposal to the council in 2001, and other parties had put up schemes for years before that.

Hearings committee chairman Jan Sinclair said the village was “a unique development in a unique area. It’s a one-off which offers another choice of lifestyle in Manukau. The committee heard expert evidence that gave us confidence the proposed canal housing won’t be bad for the environment.

“It will be self-sufficient with its own infrastructure for sewage & drinking water. 34ha of wetland & native planting will encourage new life in the river – we’re quite confident this will mitigate any potential environmental effects.

“The rules of the plan change will protect the natural character of the surrounding rural landscape and ensure a carefully managed urban development.”

Among other reasons the committee gave for upholding the plan change:

It will bring economic & social benefits to the Clevedon area in the form of employment opportunities & enhanced facilities that can be supported by a growing populationIt will facilitate the provision of enhanced boating facilities in the Wairoa River and result in generous open spaces & a walkway system for the publicNorth Rd will be upgraded considerably.

Manukau seeks expressions of interest to develop Flat Bush town centre

Published 4 October 2006


Tomorrow’s Manukau Properties Ltd, a subsidiary of the Manukau City Council, has hired former Westfield (NZ) Ltd managing director Grant Hirst to help conduct an expressions-of-interest programme for the Flat Bush town centre project.



Mr Hirst is now at Munro Corp Pty Ltd.


Expressions of interest close on Friday 10 November.


Negotiations from this programme are likely to lead to a joint venture with Tomorrow’s Manukau Properties, although the company still has to discuss that with the council.


The Flat Bush area of Manukau is being turned from farmland into a suburb which will contain 40,000 people by 2020. The council has created a masterplan for the 18ha town centre and Tomorrow’s Manukau Properties has launched a marketing campaign in Australia & New Zealand to attract interested participants.
