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.
private plan change
Auckland Council’s planning committee opted on Tuesday for the slower course of accepting a plan change for a potential 1200 houses at Warkworth rather than adopting it.
Representatives of the Milford Residents’ Association were surprised at a council meeting last Thursday that a private plan change could be approved without outstanding payments being met by the applicant. Private plan change 34 was approved – but a debate also ensued over how these changes should be handled.
