Update on 7-Storey Development

This Tuesday (8th July), Grey Lynn residents and organisations attended the Waitemataa Board meeting re proposed 7-storey development at 367-375 Great North Road, Grey Lynn.

The Waitemataa Local Board passed the motion on the spot to call for full public notification. WLB chair Shale Chambers said it was the first time the board had ever passed a formal motion to call for public notification.

A reminder to all members and Grey Lynn residents to tell Auckland Council to make this proposed development publicly notified by emailing Sian Pushon – the planner at council dealing with this Sian.Pushon@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz.

This proposed building is grossly outside the limits of the District Plan & the Unitary Plan. It is 8.5m overheight and twice the ground floor area ( size) allowable under the Distict Plan. This building is 7 stories high and will dominate the Grey Lynn skyline and at times will shade right across Great North Road and the properties on the other side. If consented this could set the benchmark for developers along Great North Road and other arterial routes.

Thanks Grey Lynn!
