34 rural residential lots

The Project

Plan change proposal to convert farmland to 34 rural residential lots on the outskirts of Rotorua.  

Our Approach

Collaborative approach to design with landscape architects to integrate house sites within the sloping backdrop to Rotorua and establish extensive re-vegetation.  We provided resource management act planning expertise, from District Plan interpretation, submissions, and evidence with the Environment Court appeal. We also provided civil engineering expertise on the construction, earthworks, infrastructure, erosion and project management for the development.

Project Outcome/ Solution

A prestige subdivision that gives great views and outlook, provides re-vegetation to avoid visual intrusion and nutrient run off into the sensitive Lake Rotorua catchment.
