The application from Wooing Tree Property Development was set down to be heard by the Central Otago District Council hearings panel in Cromwell yesterday and related to subdivision consent for 25.4ha to be divided into 41 residential lots, with land use to breach minimum side yard rules, and to cancel a specified condition in a consent notice.
The site subject to the application bordered Shortcut Rd, and State Highways 6 and 8B at Cromwell and includes land classified as residential, rural and business resource area, as was land subject to notable tree and building line restrictions.
The application proposed a denser subdivision to create eight additional residential lots breaching minimum lot areas required.
It attracted 21 submissions opposing the plan.
In the report tabled before the panel, Johnston Whitney planning consultant David Whitney recommended the application be refused consent.
However, its withdrawal preempted that.
Panel chairman Neil Gillespie said he expected the application to return in some shape or form and advised people to hold on to their agendas from yesterday’s meeting.
