The Hobsonville superyacht development has got another green light after Waitakere and North Shore City Council resolved planning issues relating to the development.
The North Shore City Council had appealed Waitakere City's decision on Proposed Plan Change 13, which allowed for the development of the boat building base, at the Environment Court.
However, this appeal has now been withdrawn following and agreement being reached.
The two councils have now agreed on additional provisions, which include ensuring that new buildings have a variety of heights and shapes, and that existing and new vegetated buffers will be in place.
Councillor Vanessa Neeson, chair of the Waitakere City Council's Planning and Regulatory Committee said: “They can now see the creation of some of the employment opportunities in Hobsonville on the horizon, with over 2000 direct jobs expected to be created when the entire marine industry area is operating."
The concept plan is complete and WPL will lodge resource consents for the marine industry area he says.
