Shelly Bay development – public invited to have their say

Wellington City Council is inviting public submissions on a proposal to sell and lease some of its land to Shelly Bay Limited, so a planned development of housing and public space can go ahead.

Shelly Bay Ltd’s development includes plans for a new neighbourhood, with 350 homes; a waterfront walkway; green space; parking and seating; cafes, bars and shops; a microbrewery and a 50-bed boutique hotel.

Shelly Bay Ltd is a joint venture between Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust (the entity set up to manage the Treaty settlement package for Taranaki Whānui) and developers The Wellington Company. The Council gave Shelly Bay Ltd resource consent for the development in April this year.

Acting Wellington Mayor and Housing Portfolio Leader Paul Eagle says: “The development is an opportunity for Council to resolve the future of Shelly Bay and enhance the open space and public’s access to the waterfront.

“Millions of dollars will flow into our economy during and after construction, with more than 100 full time jobs created when the development is complete.”

The proposal involves the Council selling a plot of land to Shelly Bay Ltd for housing, and leasing a plot of land and two buildings on the waterfront for the development of housing and commercial/retail space.

It is also proposed that Council and Shelly Bay Ltd share the cost of the infrastructure improvements (including upgrading the Council’s seawall and road) and the development of public space.

A Councillor working party has overseen the development of the consultation process and material.

Working Party Chair Councillor Diane Calvert says: “We want to ensure that the public have clear and complete information about the proposal to sell and lease land to Shelly Bay Ltd. We’re keen to hear people’s view on the proposal”.

Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust Chair Wayne Mulligan says the development at Shelly Bay will play an important part in the iwi achieving its aspirations for its people.

“We purchased land at Shelly Bay in 2009 and are keen to see the development go ahead so we can start generating value for our people. The development of Shelly Bay will greatly enhance our efforts to assist our people in achieving their social, educational and cultural goals, something all Treaty settlements should provide.”
