Ferrymead Tavern site gets green light

Independent commissioner gives Ferrymead Tavern site green light
The resource consent application for a 14-storey office block on the Ferrymead Tavern site has been allowed to proceed without public notification by an independent commissioner.
The commissioner found that the environmental effects of the matters that breach the Council’s City Plan (vehicle access and parking layout) are less than minor. Furthermore, the recommendation that the resource consent be granted has been approved.
The commissioner was not able to take into account other issues such as the bulk or height of the building (the structure complies with the City Plan rules) as his discretion is restricted to the matters of non-compliance only.
A full copy of the report and decision is available from the Linwood Service Centre.
