Following a hearing in June, Corbridge Estates Partnership

Corbridge co-director Lloyd Ferguson said work would begin
soon to ''tidy up'' the SH6 frontage of the development,

work and social buildings, four guest accommodation units for
the exclusive use of residents, a boat shed, jetties, two

A 7.9ha lake will be a central feature of the development.
A 10-year consent period was granted due to the scale and
complexity of the development.
The site, in the rural general zone, is managed at present as
a dryland sheep and cropping farm.
Conditions of the consent include building height
restrictions, ensuring buildings on 13 of the lots are not
visible from Clutha River Reserve land, and that the consent
holder be responsible for the ongoing maintenance of the
public walking and cycling tracks within the development.
New residential buildings located within 80m of SH6 are to be
designed and constructed to meet noise performance standards
for traffic and no further subdivision or development of the
residential lots or balance of the property is permitted.
