Estuary edge plan to have limited notification
Commissioner rules estuary edge plan to have limited notification
The most recent resource consent application received by the Christchurch City Council for the potential redevelopment of the Ferrymead Tavern site at 1099 Ferry Road will be processed on a limited notified basis, Resource Management Commissioner John Milligan has decided.
The application was received in September and referred to Mr Milligan last week. It is for a seven-storey (22m high) apartment building containing 36 residential units.
Mr Milligan has determined that the application need not be publicly notified, but because written consents have not been obtained from the owners and occupiers of neighbouring commercial properties who are considered to be adversely affected, the application is to be dealt with on a limited notified basis under Section 94(1) of the Resource Management Act.
Under the limited notified process, only persons identified as adversely affected are able to make a submission. After hearing any submissions, a substantive decision will be made. The City Council is not able to say how long it will take before a final decision is reached.
Mr Milligan has dealt with two earlier resource consent applications regarding the site, both for commercial office buildings. The first, for a 14-storey building, was approved, as was one earlier this year for a seven-storey building.
