A Halfway Bush, Dunedin, couple have been granted consent to
subdivide their rural property into two lots.
Tony and Lynette Guy applied to divide their Stephen St
property, mostly zoned rural, in two, so their son could
build a home on the new lot.
The committee considering the application noted the Guys had
reached agreements with opposing submitters.
The applicants' proposed to trim large trees at the edge of
the property, plant an evergreen screen and improve access to
the property, with kerbing and channelling to intercept
surface water flow.
The section had been planned with further development in mind
and had not been farmed for many years and the house was
relatively low-level and would be screened.
The committee concluded it was unlikely approving this
non-complying subdivision would encourage more of the same.
