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 street to enable up to 123 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’re proposing allowing medium density housing within the area which would mean new homes could be up to 3 storeys, with a minimum 150m2 site size.

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

Got questions, concerns, ideas? Come along and talk to our planning team about the proposed rezoning of Roxburgh Crescent.
