New Supermarket Included In Lynfield Development

New Supermarket Included In Lynfield Shopping Centre Redevelopment

A new Countdown supermarket and specialty shop will be included in a redevelopment of the existing Lynfield Shopping Centre, says Auckland City Planning Fixtures Sub-Committee Chair Cr Juliet Yates.

The existing Three Guys supermarket will continue to trade until the new one is completed and the applicant will meet the cost of installing traffic lights at the intersection of The Avenue and Hillsborough Road.

Mrs Yates said the applicant had advised that extensive community consultation had taken place. “A copy of a petition with 1300 signatories in favour of the supermarket and the lights was produced.”

Plunket will relocate into the new building which required approvals for, among other matters, removal of protected trees, earthworks and excavations.

Council arborists concluded that nine trees would need to be removed and the applicant’s offer to establish trees within the street reserve along The Avenue and Hillsborough Avenue was accepted.

“A detailed landscape maintenance plan is required and strict conditions have been imposed for all tree work,” Mrs Yates said.

The planning assessment stated that the proposal reinforced the existence of the Lynfield shopping centre, offered the opportunity for new businesses and services for the convenience of residents and should reduce the need to travel long distances to a supermarket. Traffic assessments concluded there would be minor effects on the roading network.

“Consent was granted after careful consideration of all the reports,” Mrs Yates said.
