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 has an extensive agenda again for its meeting on Tuesday, starting with public input on zero emission electric ferries & public transport fares.
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.
Plan change 260 for Orakei Point won its final approval to be made operative on Tuesday, completing an often acrimonious regulatory journey that began in 2006.
