The Southern Gateway Consortium’s plans to open up 150ha next to Auckland Airport at Wiri for development must be nearing the last hurdle this week.
The Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board has a recommendation for its meeting on Tuesday to approve the application providing for a bridge & collector road from Prices Rd to McLaughlins Rd.
That follows the same recommendation to the Manurewa Local Board last Thursday (I haven’t checked yet if that went through).
This land was caught up 15 years ago in the same rezoning mix as the Ihumatao land which protesters are occupying now. Politicians were aware back then that Ihumatao had distinct cultural issues relating it to the Otuataua stonefields, but eventually proceeded with rezoning anyway.
The Southern Gateway Consortium’s development plans have been held up by a long line of regulatory impediments – rezoning, shifting the metropolitan urban limit and, over 5 years ago, the requirement for a structure plan.
