*14 June 2019 || Land Use/Subdivision ||12 Abbotts Way, Remuera || This resource consent application relates to a proposal for a residential development at 12 and 46 Abbotts Way Remuera. The land use development involves construction of 53 new residential dwellings. The subdivision will create 53 lots around the residential dwell ings and two vacant lots for future development. Total, there are 55 residential lots proposed for the development.
This large undeveloped land holding has been ear-marked for development for many years and some of that history is reflected in the AEE. Previous proposals were for development half as intense as what is now proposed.
Overall this is a non-complying activity that it is preferable to publicly notify the matter using general discretion under the RMA, or to use the ‘special circumstances’ provisions to do so.
The site is mostly non-visible from the surrounding road networks. The surrounding residential area is intensively filled. However the potential visual effects of the infill will be visible from parts of the surrounding street network and reserve, and create more than minor character effects. The particular type of terrace housing will also be very different from the existing dominant pattern of housing around it. This character or design for that intensity in this area however is not anticipated and clearly breaks dominant residential character.
The site is bordered by very busy traffic networks: Ladies Mile and Abbots Way.
A 53 lot development with 55 lots in total inclusive of 2 future development lots is a significant development. Staged development is proposed and generates cumulative effects that may be more than minor.
The creation of a new road and effects on Abbotts Way are more than minor and will impact on users of the area and residents.
Proposals for stormwater and connectivity to existing man hole infrastructure in Koraha reserve also potential effect surrounding properties and users in ways that are more than minor.
The Koraha Reserve’s downstream stormwater reticulation is already almost full given existing development in the area. The effects of this proposal will therefore be more than minor on stormwater reticulation.
