The Kirimoko subdivision in Wanaka looks set to expand, as the developers have applied to subdivide adjoining land into 32 sections.

Developers John May and Michael Seiler have applied for resource consent to subdivide a 7ha block of land on the edge of the Sticky Forest into 32 residential sections and a community reserve.

The sections will range in size between 610sq m and 910sq m.

The land was cleared of mature pine trees earlier this year to make room for the development, although the application said there would be significant replanting on the land’s upper slopes.

The development will form part of the ‘‘Kirimoko block’’ that currently consists of Kirimoko Park, Kirimoko Heights and Kirimoko Cottages, totalling more than 150 homes.

The proposed subdivision will join a host of other developments in  Upper Clutha, increasing the area’s housing stock.
