Staff Recommendations

That the Hagley/Ferrymead Community Board:

2.         Receive and note for record purposes the Board’s closing statement on the Christchurch Replacement District Plan Additional Proposal for Medium Density Zoning in Parts of Linwood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Community Board Resolved HFCB/2016/00116

The Hagley/Ferrymead Community Board decided:

1.         To receive the report.

2.         To receive and note for record purposes the Board’s closing statement on the Christchurch Replacement District Plan Additional Proposal for Medium Density Zoning in Parts of Linwood subject to the following amendments (in bold and strikeout below) at paragraphs 3.1, and 5.1:

3.1          The Board is aware of community concern that developer led investment in multi-unit housing in this area may result in substandard ‘ghetto’ housing and exacerbate social issues facing the area.  Developers may view the area as an opportunity for a quick profit to capitalise on the RMD zoning without considering the real need of the community at large.  The basis of this concern stems from  the lack of regulation and design standards to ensure quality housing design and build, and fed by examples such as the Charleston/Phillipstown area where a neighbourhood plan was put in place but was let down in its implementation by District Plan and Resource Management Act processes.

5.1          Investment in the Linwood community is encouraged, but it should be led by the public sector with its commitment to wider community interests.  To this extent the Board would be prepared to accept the limited zoning proposed by Sarah Oliver at 8.6 of her evidence to facilitate the Housing NZ Corporation development. The Board further submits however that any such development should, in general, include an eight metre height limit overlay.

Community Board Resolved HFCB/2016/00117
