Polhill Land Divestment

Postby Velocipedestrian on Sat 25th Mar 10:35am

Victoria University is in the process of divesting itself of some land parcels around town.

Two of these border polhill reserve, and various of the neighbours are concerned about the possibility of them going to developers.

Many mountain bikers use the smaller of these parcels for parking when riding at polhill, and might have similar concerns.

So here's a pdf some locals put together to make it easy for you to forward to the mayor / council if you like.

polhill neighbours wrote: WCC Council and Mayor will be presented with a recommendation on these parcels Monday 27/3/17 - why not share how you feel about this issue? So if you agree, please press forward on this email.

Here are some key email addresses to use:

Councillors@wcc.govt.nz
Mayor@wcc.govt.nz
David.Chick@wcc.govt.nz

Please forward this email to any other person or group who might be interested in having their voice heard on this issue.

Hey Finn, would it be worth me posting this on the BTB site?

Do it. Spread the word anywhere you think suits.

it would be nice if they did go to developers that they were developed adequately, ie high quality high density housing, it would be nice if housing was affordable, the aro valy section is probably unsuitable for this. the Holloway road section could support a 20-30 residence development.

Only $500,000 damp dark flats with mould are allowed in Aro Valley. These need to be Victorian style with the kitchen and bathroom built on the back into the darker side of the building at some time in the 50's.

It looks like it could, but the access driveway is pinched between two existing sections of reserve.
The width puts a constraint on the number of residences that can share it.

The universitys deadline for council response on this is 13 April.
So if you're interested in submitting, better be quick.
