Dear Mr Thomas,

Greetings. My name is Gary Henderson, and I’m president of the Oratia Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association. I’m getting in touch about the development in progress at 518 West Coast Rd.

Some of the owners of adjoining properties were very concerned that they hadn’t been notified of this development, possibly being unaware that as assessed under the Resource Management Act your consent application was processed on a non-notified basis.

The non-notified status of the development and the absence of any information have caused a bit of speculation and alarm – some about the future of the Kaurimu stream and some on the nature and density of the housing proposed for the property.

In the interests of establishing some communication with the community – and allaying some of the concerns – would you consider giving us an overview of how 518 West Coast Road Ltd plans to develop the property, and what it will involve? You can contact us at the postal address above or email address below. Would you also give permission for us to publish any response on our website at www.oratia.org.nz?

Alternatively, you’re most welcome to attend our next committee meeting at 7.30pm on Tuesday November 13th in the Small Hall (the smaller of the two halls opposite Oratia School).

We look forward to hearing from you, or hosting you at our meeting.

Kind regards
Gary Henderson
