A resource consent application was received from James Bridge on 23/12/21 for a rural lifestyle subdivision located at the end of Punawaitai Rd, Pourerere. The proposal is to create 48 rural lots as an extension of the current resource RM180160A for 22 rural lifestyle sections.

The resource consent application is in the very early stage of processing with technical peer reviews now in progress. A s92 request for further information will follow these technical and engineering lead reviews.  While there may be an expectation of community consultation, Council in its function under the Resource Management Act 1991 is not able to pick and choose what it notifies for public consultation. The Act and the current Operative District Plan sets those things out. Our team are working through the normal processing approach and will not be in a position to ascertain whether there are grounds or not for public notification until all outstanding information requirements are received and reviewed. Council will work with the developer to obtain the information necessary to complete a thorough assessment of the application.

For clarification, a resource consent has not been granted – the application is in the very early stages of assessment.

We appreciate and recognise there is high community interest with this potential subdivision being one of a number of potential subdivisions that Council is currently processing.
