Christine Terrace/Orchard Road Subdivision 18/2/2016

Alastair Sims (Coyote Developments) and others shortly plan to apply for a resource consent for a subdivision creating 6 or 7 titles off Orchard Road and Christine Terrace. This is non complying so will be fully notified.

The developers suggest there are number of benefits from this, particularly for Orchard Road residents.

In terms of visual impact they state

“that there will be two additional houses visible from certain parts of Hahei village on the north facing slopes of the hills to the south of the village. It is submitted that this will amount to an insignificant alteration to the appearance of these hills from the village.”

Two of the other house sites will apparently only be visible from the sea.

Alastair has prepared an excellent readable summary document so that you don’t have to wade through the whole application to understand the plan. You may view this summary document here

Other documentation provided here includes

Alastair is happy to provide more information and access to full documentation should you require it (see summary for contact info)

Cathedral Court Restaurant - Application date 26/09/2013

Proposed restaurant on corner of Beach Road and Cathedral Court

This is at the pink house opposite the general store - locally colloquially referred to as "Pinkys Restaurant"

The owners have applied for a consent for a restaurant business in this house. This is contentious because it is within a residential area, not an area zoned commercial. Many consider that it should have been publicly notified because of this and the precedent it may set for commercial operations amongst residences. But TCDC considered that the effect was only minor so it did not require public notification.

Neighbours who were notified are strongly opposed to this because of possible issues regarding noise, smells, traffic and other things that they consider will immediately affect them and their property values. The process is ongoing as at April 2017.

Documentation on this is available on the TCDC Consent Tracking page at
