Following the lodging of a resource consent application last month by Urban Legacy & Partners Limited (Urban Partners) for consent to plans to rejuvenate Mission Bay’s centre, the Auckland Council has now publicly notified the application (as requested by Urban Partners) to allow submissions from the public.
The public now have 20 working days to lodge a submission on the application with their feedback on the Project for redevelopment of the eastern part of Mission Bay’s local centre.
Project Director Doug Osborne says feedback to date through informal consultation and online / social media channels has been mainly positive.
“We have been encouraged by the level of the support for the Project so far. The public agree that change is desperately needed for Mission Bay and we’re proud to have put forward a proposal for a Project that will make Mission Bay a better place for all the community.
“We recognise that no Project will meet with 100 per cent approval. However, the level of support we have received so far affirms our commitment to deliver a transformative development that will see this iconic area meet its full potential.”
Urban Partners welcomes feedback on the Project through its next stage of the Council’s formal submission process. Submissions can be lodged in support or opposition to the application.
“We look forward to the next stage of this open, publicly notified process, which gives everyone the opportunity to have their say,” concludes Osborne.
