An independent panel has given the go-ahead to a housing development in Beachlands, east Auckland.
Neil Construction Limited and Fletcher Residential Limited applied to subdivide land and build up to 235 residential units at 109 Beachlands Road.
The Minister for the Environment referred this project to be decided by an expert consenting panel under the COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-track Consenting) Act 2020.
The expert consenting panel today granted resource consents, with conditions, for the development.
The decision comes 85 working days after the applications and notices of requirement were lodged with the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).
The EPA is not involved in the decision-making, but provides support for the panel convener, Judge Laurie Newhook, and the expert consenting panels he appoints.
