Updated: Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 5-11 November 2018

Updated 7 November 2018 with Auckland Council regulatory committee agenda links:
Auckland Council’s planning committee has a number of important items on its agenda on Tuesday – starting with public input (from the proposers) on the latest central waterfront proposal, another on Unlock Panmure, and a third on the metropolitan centre plan as it affects Papakura.

Council staff have a long list of changes to be made to the unitary plan – mostly small fixes, but I haven’t gone right through them. One that will be contentious concerns the special character areas overlay, in response to an Environment Court declaration.
Earlier story, 12 September 2018: Council wants overlay precedence over zone rules, even after court findings

There’s also a report on the proposed regional public transport plan – the council version of how it ought to be, distinct from the Auckland Transport version of these issues, which is about how to do it.

A report to the council’s strategic procurement committee contains an update on the $1 billion of central city capital projects the council has its budget for the next 10 years.

Among consent applications open to submissions, one is for an extension to the Half Moon Bay marina, a second is for the works to unscramble the entrances to Warkworth from State Highway 1, and a third is the public safety & nuisance bylaw, which contains a council proposal to ban fireworks.

The diary is updated weekly and lists auctions, council meetings & agendas, hearings & submissions, economic release dates, events, Parliament order paper items and securities.

Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 22-28 October 2018

I usually enable links to a new page. This week I’m trying to convince my typing machine to co-operate, as I’m overseas. The machine knows this and has been mostly obstructive, so the website links over the next few days aren’t to a new page.

Several new consent hearings, environment committee has notable items on agenda

Several resource consent applications around Auckland have moved from the submissions stage through to hearings during the next 2 months. You can check the applications below.

The one Auckland Council scheduled to meet this week, environment & community, has a number of notable items on its agenda – no matter what your perspective on environmental issues.

Other business before that committee includes quarterly updates on targeted rates for water quality & the natural environment.

The committee has a confidential item on the acquisition of open space in 3 Kings (precise address not given), and the chair of the Puketapapa local board has a motion before his board on Thursday regarding the council’s deal with Fletcher Residential Ltd over allocation of open space & development of sports fields in the company’s 3 Kings quarry project.
