Proposed Revocation of Part of Waenga Drive Greenway Reserve
The Central Otago District Council and the Cromwell Community Board are proposing to revoke theLocal Purpose (Amenity) Reserveclassification of approximately 619m² of the Waenga Drive Greenway Reserve in Cromwell (the Land).
The Land has been identified as necessary to provide for the expansion and upgrade of an existing supermarket which is surrounded by three road frontages (Waenga Drive, Murray Terrace and Elspeth Street) with the ability only to expand to the Land. To achieve the necessary expansion, the reserve status applying to the Land needs to be revoked.
The Waenga Drive Greenway Reserve will continue to be able to be used, and to achieve its amenity purpose. It is proposed that the remaining part of the Waenga Drive Greenway Reserve will be redeveloped with improved landscaping and amenity spaces being provided.
It is intended to dispose of the Land by sale to adjoining landowner Foodstuffs South Island Properties Ltd. The proceeds from the sale will be used for the future development and enhancement of other reserve areas within the Cromwell ward.
A statement of proposal outlining the proposed revocation in more detail (including a map and landscape plan), and implications for neighbouring landowners and reserve users arelinked below. Hard copies are also available at Council service centres.
You can make a submission on the proposed reclassification online via the link below.
Written submissions can be posted to: Revocation of Part of Waenga Drive Greenway Reserve, Central Otago District Council, PO Box 122, Alexandra 9340. Submissions must be received by 5.00pm Monday 9 August 2021
