RE: Objection to the Resource Consent Application for
proposed development at 367-375 Great North Road,
Grey Lynn.

Our submission is about the following issue in our local
board area.

A planned seven-storey and 30 unit apartment building
in the Terraced Housing and Apartment Zone with a
14.5m height restriction.

A Less than minor impact on the Grey Lynn and
Arch Hill Residents.

The ramifications for long-term development of our

We are concerned and troubled by a Resource
Consent Application for a proposed development at
367-375 Great North Road, Grey Lynn.

The proposed building grossly exceeds the limits of
the District, Proposed Unitary Plan and the
recently announced Special Housing Accord.
It is 9 meters ( 57%) over height and twice the
ground floor area allowable.

Has the developer taken into account the
ramifications that consent will have by setting a
precedent for housing intensification along the
Grey Lynn ridge?
No we think not!

In the Harbour City News Wednesday 11
2014, developer Greer Stephens from Urban
Collective said

The apartments have been set back 9 meters from
the residential boundary and the top two floors are
set even further back. The extra height does not
block anyones view or shade any neighbours.

It is critical that locations such as this be allowed to
be developed to their full potential in order to
allow for the intensification of the city without
threatening the destruction of the existing heritage
we all love so much.


Our community embraces residential
intensification within the zone but both the height
and bulk of Mr Stephens proposal will do nothing
to complement or even enhance the existing
heritage environment and the character he
supposedly refers to.

If Mr Stephens has his way with a Non-Notified
Consent, Grey Lynn and Arch Hill communities will
be denied opportunity to have a say, and this will
create a precedent, in exactly the same way as the
proposed Bunnings development has for potential
Big Boxes along the ridge. We therefore ask the
Waitemata Local Board to recommend for the
consent application to be fully notified.

Ko te kainga pai rawa I roto I Grey Lynn.

Jim Diers said
Neighbours can generate tremendous power when
they come together as a community.

developers and other external forces and mobilize
