Proposed application to subdivide and construct dwellings at 1 Tainui Rise, Gore Bay

Application

The Hurunui District Council has received an application from R Thodey for resource consent to subdivide 1 Tainui Rise, Gore Bay into two allotments and to construct future dwellings on the two proposed undersized allotments.

1 Tainui Rise Gore Bay

Proposal

RC180016 (Subdivision) - Two lot subdivision

Consent is sought to subdivide the 0.85 hectare site at 1 Tainui Rise, Gore Bay into two lots.  The subdivision will create Lot 1 of 4597 m2 and Lot 2 of 3116 m2.  Two rights of way “A” (304 m2) and “B” (233 m2) are proposed over Lots 1 and 2. 

The subdivision will not comply with the minimum allotment area of 20 hectares required by the Coastal Environment and Outstanding Natural Landscape zoning that applies to this property.

The site is physically landlocked.  Access and services are to be provided over the neighbouring property at 698 Gore Bay Road, Gore Bay.  No right of way or service easements exist over the neighbouring property to allow the applicant to access or provide services to the proposed allotments.  The applicant has obtained only a verbal agreement from the owner of this property. 

Overall, the subdivision is a non-complying activity in accordance with the Hurunui District Plan.

RC180025 (Land-use) – To construct one dwelling on each of the two undersized allotments

Land-use consent is required to construct future dwellings on the two proposed undersized allotments. 

 The allotment area will not comply with the minimum density requirement of one dwelling per 20 hectares as required by the Coastal Environment and Outstanding Natural Landscape zoning that applies to this property. 

The proposed dwellings would not comply with the 100 metre setback between residential activities, the maximum height restriction of 5.0 metres, and the 20 metre setback from all other boundaries. 

The activity would also not comply with the New Zealand Fire Service Firefighting Water Supplies Code of Practice SNZ PAS 4509:2008 as the right of way construction would not provide the required access for fire appliances to access the proposed allotments. 

Overall, the proposed dwellings are non-complying activities in accordance with the Hurunui District Plan.

Reason for public notification

The Council considered the proposed subdivision and residential development would create adverse effects that were more than minor.  In accordance with section 95A of the Resource Management Act 1991, the application must be publically notified.  The section 95 assessment provides a detailed assessment of the effects of the proposal and is available below. 

The resource consent application was publicly notified on the 19 September 2018.
