Stanmore Bay apartments ready for resource consent

These plans for 61 apartments in Brightside Road are to be amended, particularly in relation to height, with new designs to go before Council for approval.

Five storey apartments planned for residential Stanmore Bay will soon go before Auckland Council for resource consent.

Before they do, amendments are being made to the design after Council requested a review.

The apartment blocks are proposed for a prominent corner site, 85-89 Brightside Road, behind New World Whangaparaoa, and Council planners’ concerns, which led to design changes, included the height of the buildings in a surrounding low-rise residential environment.
The previous plans (HM April 18) were for 61 apartments in three blocks – two blocks of five-storeys and one of four storeys.

Last week Council advised that developer Ozone Ltd’s previous proposal, pictured, has been amended to be “broadly compliant with the site’s development controls – namely, height”.

Council has reviewed the changes from an urban design and landscape perspective and the applicant is now updating its architectural plans.

The latest plans are expected to go before Council in the next few weeks.

Council planners will decide whether the resource consent application for the project will be notified so that the public can make submissions.
