Regulatory & hearings committee, 4 April 2002

Glenfield, 145 Manuka Rd, the committee amended its consent for a 5-lot subdivision granted in January after the developer, John Scott, objected to 1 condition requiring all power & telecommunications wiring to go underground. 3 of the dwellings are already standing, but are served by lines which fall below the UnitedNetworks guideline of 4.5m for rights of way.

Mr Scott agreed to underground wiring to the 2 new lots, at existing flat 4. Overhead wiring will be allowed for the other units, but will be brought up to the guideline height.

Paremoremo Prison, 8 Sanders Rd, the committee approved an application by the Corrections Department to build 3 prototype prison cells to test designs for future prisons, but also decided the cells could not stay once trialling was finished. [This is a corrected item: Original story said the cells could stay; they have to be removed.]

Albany, 62 Parkway Drive, the committee received an outline plan of works from the city council & Transit NZ for earthworks to stabilise the site for the Constellation Drive busway station & parking area, and agreed changes affecting onsite management, silting, noise & dust control. The Environment Court confirmed the site’s designation for a bus station last June.

Council challenges 9m public strip at Bayswater

North Shore City Council has decided to challenge the Conservation Department’s decision to retain a 9m marginal strip round the 3.4ha main reclamation at Bayswater, for a usable width of 6.5m.

The council wanted a 15m strip and will seek a judicial review of the department’s 2 May decision (there’s no provision for an appeal). Bayswater Marina Developments Ltd (Marika Jones & Keith Goodall) wanted a strip ranging from 3.6-9.7m.

The council issued a draft structure plan in May 2001 for 5.5ha, including the marina land, and a development concept plan is contained in proposed variation 65 for the marina.

Under both those documents buildings would be set back 15m. Bayswater Marina has appealed relevant parts of the coastal provisions in variation 57, but those proceedings are adjourned in the Environment Court until variation 65 reaches the same stage.

The council is aiming to have a hearing in July on variation 65. Once that’s decided, the draft structure plan will be finalised.
