The DCC has just issued a Public Notice of application for resource consent to subdivide 13 McLachlan St (being the paddocks between McLachlan St and Brown St/Doctors Point Rd) into 4 new rural-residential sites. Within the current Dunedin City District Plan this is a non-complying activity as the land is zoned rural and if it goes ahead would set a precedent for this sort of development within the community.
The wider community is encouraged to make submissions about this proposal which are due by February 18. Copies of the Public Notice are available from the Blueskin Bay Library or through the DCC website dunedin.govt.nz
Some residents have expressed interest in a community meeting to discuss the application and will advertise on the Harvey St blackboard when a date is confirmed.
