Landsdale Development Limited have prepared this private plan change to create a new Medium Density Residential Zone and to reconfigure the existing Greenbelt Zone over the land located at 120 and 125 Upper Ohauiti Road.

What is proposed by the Plan Change?

This proposal seeks to urbanise land located on Upper Ohauiti Road through the creation of a new Medium Density Residential Zone. This proposed new residential zone would cover approximately 23.5 hectares (42%) of the total land area and include provisions that control the requirements and timing for future development.  These requirements include the medium density residential standards (MDRS), when upgrades to existing road corridors are to occur, the creation of new local roads and reserves within the site, and connections to Council reticulated water and wastewater services. The proposal also includes consideration of a range of stormwater management options to guide future development within the plan change area.
