Additional Special Housing Areas established in Churton Park

Special Housing Areas (SHAs) have special consenting and approval processes intended to speed up development. These include proactive council pre-application processes, fast-tracked consenting and limited notification and appeals.

As part of the government's housing accord, the whole of Stebbings Valley was established last year as a SHA.

At the Council meeting on 8 April, additional areas in Wellington have been established as SHA's as publicised in the newspaper.

The Churton Park areas are as follows:
  • 22 Westchester Drive (Reedy land). This is the land mainly to the north of the new Westchester Drive link but also includes the area on the south side of the road behind the memorial.
  • 98 Westchester Drive. This is the small area of land between Westchester Drive and Stebbings Dam.
  •   Westchester Drive to Ohariu Road. This is the large area of land to the west of Westchester Drive, Furlong Cres and Winsley Cres through to Ohariu Road.

Attached below are the maps and images of these areas. Note that XPS viewer may not be available on some mobile devices.

These blocks of undeveloped land are adjacent to the developed areas of Churton Park.

As far as the committee has been able to determine, the main effect of this change relates to the consenting process for land subdivision only, with lot sizes and housing density still controlled as previously.


Also attached below is the report on Special Housing Areas presented to the Council meeting on 8 April. Note that the pdf does not include the images.
