Decision reserved on Piha café proposal

Three days of a hearing into a proposed café at Piha, have concluded with the commissioners reserving their decision.

It is expected that the decision will be released in the New Year.
A public hearing was held to examine a proposal by Preserve Piha Ltd to develop the café at 20 Seaview Road on a residential zoned site currently occupied by the old telephone exchange and the post office.
The Post Office building would be removed and the telephone exchange converted to a café with 10 onsite carparking spaces provided.
Resource Consents are required from both Waitakere City Council and the Auckland Regional Council for the proposal to go ahead. The councils decided to hold a joint hearing to consider the applications.

The commissioners were Messrs Ken Graham (chair) and Ian Gunn for the ARC and Cr Derek Battersby and Cr Vanessa Neeson for Waitakere City Council.

The proposal attracted 199 submissions from the public, both in support and opposition.
