The background of this development, is that the section allowed for four two-storey lots under the Auckland Unitary Plan. The site as it existed contained a single storey dwelling, therefore it was more economical for the client to have the site developed.

RESIDENTIAL – Mixed Housing Urban zone.

The site is a corner lot site, meaning it has two road frontages. Under the Auckland Unitary Plan, the alternative height in relation to boundary (AHIRTB) standard can be used if the proposed dwellings are within 20m of the road frontage. The AHIRTB standard provided more flexibility in regards to the design of the proposed units.

Obviously being in a good street, made this development a viable proposition, for four new units.

The developers used SPACELINK SURVEYORS from start to finish.
