Two lot subdivision

Mixed Housing Urban Zone, Land-use/subdivision consent

Granted - $2000 Council refund

A project establishing two new dwellings on newly subdivided sections. This site was situated in a coastal inundation area and required consent for subdividing (additional consideration given to flooding), Earthworks and infringing several standards. This project received a $2000 refund on the Council deposit due to efficient processing assisted by Rico's crystal clear default application format.

Two lot subdivision

Mixed Housing Suburban Zone, Land-use/subdivision consent


Our first application, this was to convert one site into two, each containing a new dwelling. This is a common form of development in Auckland and required consent for subdividing, using Alternative Height in Relation to Boundary, Earthworks and infringing several standards. This application quickly progressed through Council delivering a very pleasing result for all involved.
