Village hearing ongoing

Independent commissioners adjourned the resource consent hearing into the proposed multi-storey retirement complex at Annalise Place, Orewa to seek more information from the applicant.

The plans that went before the commissioners on March 2 show that the tallest block is now four storeys, two blocks have been separated to reduce the appearance of bulk and there is a setback of the fourth floor adjacent to neighbours to make it look more like three storeys.

There are now 109 units. Submitters are still concerned about the building’s height and dominance in a landscape that includes native bush and mainly single storey homes.

Hibiscus Coast Forest & Bird is seeking a total cat ban for the site, with applicant Coastal Properties suggesting a partial ban.
