Feedback wanted on Whitford Village plan change

Feedback wanted on Whitford Village plan change

Public feedback is wanted on a proposed district plan change that would allow future development of Whitford Village.

An information day is also being held as part of an informal feedback period to help refine the plan change before it is notified. The information day is being held on Friday 31 October 3pm-7pm at Whitford Village Hall on Whitford Park Road.

The period for informal feedback closes on 14 November. You can give feedback at the information day or by going to where there is also information about the plan change.

The council will then amend the plan change if necessary before formally notifying it for further public submissions. The plan change follows previous public consultation in 2005.

Provision would be made for limited further development of the existing residential and business areas of the village. Development of a new residential area on the land south of the village and up to Saleyard Road is also proposed. A pedestrian linkage is proposed between the existing houses and the proposed new residential area to the south.

New developments would be required to connect to a reticulated wastewater system. Provision is made in the plan change for a land-based disposal system that would be designed to serve the whole of the village.

If approved the plan change would provide for an extra 430 residents in the village.

Manukau City Council Acting Regional and City Planning Peter Reaburn says the council has taken a “design-led” approach to the plan change.

“This will help to make sure any development is high quality and maintains a special village character.

“Design and environmental guidelines for development are a key part of the plan change. For example making sure streets cater well for pedestrians and buildings work well with each other and the environment.
“We’d encourage people to come along to the information day and have their say. Feedback at this stage will help the council refine the plan change before it is formally notified. There will be further opportunities for public submissions during the plan change process,” Mr Reaburn says.

Gordon Campbell: On The Skewed Media Coverage Of Gaza

Now that he’s back as Foreign Minister, maybe Winston Peters should start reading the MFAT website which is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of how Kiwis alerted the rest of the world to the genocide in Rwanda. How times have changed ...

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More
