Further information is provided on some of the first applications submitted to Council through Rico below.
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.
Four attached dwellings
Mixed Housing Urban Zone, Land-use consent
An application to establish 4 new attached dwellings. The Alternative Height in Relation to Boundary rule was utilised while the proposal also infringed standards for Yards, Building Coverage, Landscaped Area and Outdoor Living Space.
