Devonport Heritage's submission to the Unitary Plan to have the Fort Takapuna/ Fort Cautley precinct zoned Residential Single house zone has fallen on deaf ears.

In our submission we asked that once the Navy vacate the site, that the best zoning would be to match that of the surrounding residential sites. That call has failed and the new zoning will allow up to 5-storey development to occur. Read the North Shore Times story here...

 

 

Unitary Plan submissions drawing to a close

Spokesperson McRae

On Tuesday 19 April our Chairperson Trish Deans presented our submission on the various special Precincts in the Unitary Plan and what impact they could have on our heritage.  A good presentation with power point - The chair, Des Morrison congratulated her for her submission.  We have one final presentation in May, the re-opened hearing on the local volcanoes, see our earlier news posts.  We'd like as many members as possible to come along as supporters on the day.
