Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

It is one of three major parties appealing North Shore City Council's structure plan for the green hills behind Long Bay Regional Park.

Landco chief executive Greg Olliver said in his witness statement the council plan isn't feasible, or attractive.

"The future Long Bay community should not have to bear the lasting burden of more of the same development envisaged under the structure plan," he said.

The council plan isn't intense enough to qualify as urban zoning, he said.

But Landco's plans would destroy 8.9km of the area's streams and require five million cubic metres of earthworks.

He believes its restrictions on intense development will make for an unattractive community, because there won't be enough houses within walking distance of the village centre.

There are also doubts over whether the council plan will be economically viable, he said.
