Controversial marina apartment development back on drawing board
Controversial plans for 300 apartments on Bayswater Marina are back, after earlier being defeated in court, and residents were welcomed to an information day ahead of the next resource consent attempt.
A long-time Bayswater resident and rower's parent, Sharon Norman, said she was worried about the proposed development.
"There are very few places with access to the water for sports. It's a unique space. We could do something incredible with it, but I am not in favour of apartments," Norman said. "I just want to protect access to the water for future generations of people."
The Planning Committee today approved the draft revised Auckland Plan for formal public consultation from 28 February 2018.
It also considered two private plan change requests and received reports on the National Policy Statement on Urban Development Capacity.
Councillor Chris Darby, Planning Committee chair, says the Auckland Plan is an enormous task that sets out a grand vision for the next 30 years that is dynamic, exciting and almost changing by the day.
