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 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 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.
