Changes sought to Drury plans
Submissions open on developers' plans

Submissions on private plan changes seeking to increase residential, commercial and retail development in Drury are open until October 22.

Developers Oyster Capital, Fulton Hogan and Kiwi Property want about 330 hectares of future urban land rezoned as residential, business and open space.

Accepted by Auckland Council’s Planning Committee, any changes still need to be signed off by the full council, after public consultation and any hearings.

Council staff have added a fourth private plan change, Karaka and Drury Limited’s request to rezone 34 hectares for mixed use housing to the public notification.

Apartments planned for North Shore church site

Plans have been unveiled for 231 apartments to be built on a former harbour’s edge church site on Auckland’s North Shore.

KBS Capital is seeking resource consent for the Amaia development it expects will cost $350 million, on the 2.1-hectare site of the former Harbourside Church on Esmonde Rd.

The proposed development is the latest to be located close to key dedicated public transport routes on the North Shore, with a concept unveiled in 2019 for up to 1300 apartments by the Smales Farm busway station.

Home improvements cheaper as building consent rules relaxed

Homeowners, DIYers and builders are set to save both time and money as rules that make basic home improvements easier and cheaper take effect, Building and Construction Minister Jenny Salesa says.

“It means certain structures can be built for less without any unexpected hold-ups that may have resulted from needing building consent. And it will also help to improve the productivity of the building and construction sector, supporting the COVID-19 recovery,” says Jenny Salesa.

The new exemptions cover single-storey detached buildings up to 30 square metres – including sleep-outs, sheds and greenhouses; as well as carports, awnings, and outdoor fireplaces.
