The Environment Court has overturned council commissioners’ rejection of Bunnings Ltd’s application for consent for a trade supplier warehouse on the Frankton Flats outside Queenstown.
Orakei Point village developer OP Trustee Ltd (Kerry Knight & Chong Du Cheng has filed an appeal in the Environment Court over the rejection by Auckland Council’s planning committee of the company’s application for a private plan change.
Auckland Council’s planning committee approved 3 private plan changes for consultation last week, while rejecting one for a boundary move at the Orakei Point development.
Auckland Council’s planning committee went close a month ago to rejecting a private plan change request from Orakei Point Trustee Ltd to rezone 413m² from open space to mixed use, and on Wednesday the committee did reject the proposal.
Auckland Council’s planning committee meets on Tuesday and has a full agenda, but it looks a dreadful prospect because of the opportunities – bound to be taken up – to spout hot air.
The developer of the Orakei Point apartment & mixed use precinct beside the Orakei railway station has been turned down – sort of – in an 11-10 council committee vote over a proposed 15.75m shift in position of the Peninsula apartment building.
