A decision on the development of 59 homes on land formerly owned by the Hibiscus Coast Community RSA could come in as soon as this week.
The proposed development is being fast-tracked under a the Covid-19 Recovery consenting process initiated by central government and overseen by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
The 18,248sqm site is at 20 Melia Place and 43A Vipond Road, with access points to both roads.
The land is owned by KVest Investment Partners Group – this company and the developer, Melia Development, both have the same director – Yuntao Cai of Auckland.
The latest report from the expert panel making the decision stated that the panel issued draft conditions relating to the development and received feedback on these.
It also requested further information from the applicant. Amendments have been made to its draft conditions and feedback sought on those from organisations such as Watercare, Auckland Transport and Auckland Council. A final decision is expected this week (June 13) although the panel can opt for a further 25 days extension of time if needed.
