Neighbours Dominic Stayne and Julie Jones have applied for resource consent to subdivide two existing lots and create a five-lot subdivision with three proposed building platforms on Ballantyne Rd.
There are already two houses and building platforms on the properties.
Neighbours approve of the development.
One submission, from the Upper Clutha Environmental Society, was received opposing the application.
The society says development is unsuitable for a rural-zoned area. In the submission, society secretary Julian Haworth said there were already about 200 building platforms consented south and east of the Wanaka township on rural zoned land. The threshold of development in the area had been reached. In principle, the society would not oppose a plan change in the vicinity of the area which proposed rezoning rural land to rural residential, Mr Haworth said.
It has also opposed two other developments, one in Ballantyne Rd and one on Mt Barker, — which would develop 12 residential lots on farmland.
Hearings on the two subdivisions will be held later this month.
