Drop-In Session: Rezoning Roxburgh Crescent

A small industrial pocket wedged between the river and residential streets.

Roxburgh Crescent is an industrial pocket of Hokowhitu, sandwiched between the river and neighbouring homes. We're proposing to rezone the area to enable up to 105 new homes to be built.

Roxburgh Crescent is currently zoned industrial and occupied by industrial businesses like the Higgins Depot. Rezoning the street from industrial to residential will help to meet the growing demand for homes in Palmy. It would also bring it into better alignment with the surrounding residential suburb. The land is well suited for housing as it is flat, centrally located, and has good access to green spaces, public transport, schools and local shops.

We'll consult formally on this change to our District Plan next year, but would like to get your feedback now to help us shape our final proposal.

Got questions, concerns, ideas? Come along any time between 4pm and 6pm to talk to our planning team.
