Former America’s Cup skipper Chris Dickson has had partial success in attempting to have land he owns in Red Beach rezoned.
Mr Dickson sought through the Unitary Plan process to have his land, located off Chenery Road, rezoned from Residential Large Lot to Single Lot, which would have significantly increased the permitted density of any potential development there.
The decision made by Council was that the land should remain Residential Large Lot because of its landscape values.
However, a change was made to the Rodney Landscape Precinct, as it applies to this piece of land that enables subdivision with an average site size of 2000sqm. Generally, a minimum site size of 8000sqm applies within the Rodney Landscape Precinct.
Mr Dickson says that he currently has no plans to develop the land, but that the new zoning makes sense.
