SHA feedback sought – 12 Wakpuaka Road
Council is seeking feedback on an Expression of Interest (EOI) to develop a special housing area (SHA) at 12 Wakapuaka Road.
The site is in the rural zone, located just north of Clifton Terrace School, on State Highway 6. A map of the proposed SHA is shown below. The EOI is for the development of approximately 80 residential lots.
As a SHA the proposed development would be limited to achieving the following criteria:
- Buildings in the SHA may have a maximum of two storeys
- Buildings in the SHA must not exceed a height of 7.5m
- The minimum dwelling or residential capacity of the site is 70 residential lots
Public feedback will be reported to Council on 8 June for consideration in making a decision on whether to recommend the SHA to the Minister for Building and Housing.
While the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act doesn’t provide for formal consultation on the establishment of SHAs, the Council is interested to hear local views on this proposal. Please be aware that feedback comments will be public and available via our website at the end of the feedback period, which closes on 3 May.
