The Belmont Special Housing Area comprised approximately 72 ha of land on the western periphery of Pukekohe. CivilPlan has been providing planning, engineering and project management services to develop approximately 7.5ha of land at Belmont for various clients to achieve approximately 140 residential sites ranging in size from 200-400m2 with associated roads and stormwater management areas.
We have secured resource consents for subdivision and development of this land, including integrated consents for affordable dwellings (10% of the total yield) and for more intensive housing typologies (duplex). We are providing site observation and certification services for the implementation of the consents.
Social Housing Development, Royal Oak
CivilPlan Consultants has been working with a national social housing provider to redevelop a Mixed Use zoned site previously occupied by a factory to provide for 50 retained affordable 1 and 2-bed units within three apartment buildings.
We have provided planning and civil engineering services to obtain resource consent for the development. We are also providing site observation and contract management services through the construction phase.
The site provided challenges to create a suitable residential environment, being a rear site and bordering a mix of residential, industrial and mixed use zones. When complete, the development will provide a great opportunity for affordable living in close proximity to the Royal Oak Local Centre and key transport routes.
Approximately 50 ha of land at Clarks Beach adjacent to the existing township was zoned Future Urban in the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan, and was identified as a Special Housing Area.
CivilPlan Consultants prepared the Stormwater Management Plan to support a Plan Variation for the SHA land. The Plan Variation was approved on 16 September 2016, providing for primarily residential development (approximately 700 households) with a neighbourhood centre.
CivilPlan also provided planning and engineering services to design and prepare a resource consent application for the first stage of subdivision in the Plan Variation area, which has also been granted.
