Developer looks at fast-tracking Drury redevelopment plans

One of the country’s biggest developers hasn’t ruled out using Covid-19 recovery legislation to fast-track redevelopment of Drury, the rural town expected to become a city the size of Napier.

Under the Covid-19 Recovery (Fast-track Consenting) Act, the Environment Minister can refer resource consent applications to an expert consenting panel, bypassing the normal council and public consultation processes.

Fulton Hogan's Graeme Causer said using the legislation to speed up the process remains an option.

“We put an immense amount of work into our previous fast-track application and it cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars. The work has already been done and the legislation is already there [to use],” he said.

Trentham Racecourse on track for 850 new homes

Upper Hutt’s rapidly expanding economy has received another boost, thanks to a $12.4 million investment from government.

Funding from the Infrastructure Acceleration Fund will kick-start a new 850 home housing development and shopping centre on Trentham Racecourse land.

Upper Hutt mayor and Wellington Racing Club president Wayne Guppy said the development was great news for the city and for the racing industry.

It will “future-proof” the club allowing it to upgrade its facilities and continue to operate, as well as boosting the Upper Hutt economy.

Connecting Onehunga’s malls: Dress Smart set for upgrade, with wider town centre to share in benefits

Our Transform Onehunga regeneration programme has taken a step forward with confirmation that the town’s retail outlet centre, Dress Smart, is set for a major expansion.

Lendlease Investment Management has announced plans for a three-level extension to its Onehunga Dress Smart centre, including new shops, more dining options and improved car parking.

The new development will also feature a prominent, inviting and convenient visitor entrance and plaza area on Paynes Layne, and a direct pedestrian link through to Onehunga Mall and the Waiapu Precinct.

The planned expansion of Dress Smart is great news for Onehunga and follows the successful conclusion of a development agreement between Lendlease and Eke Panuku Development Auckland for two properties at 3 Paynes Lane and 45 Waller Street.
