Te Awa lakes

​Proposed Special Housing Area Te Rapa North (Te Awa Lakes)

Two applications to establish SHAs were submitted for the block of land north of Hutchinson Road, between the Waikato Expressway and the Waikato River. The two applications have since been merged into one. 

You may be aware that the same area of land is currently the subject of a private plan change application. This being Plan Change 2-Te Awa Lakes Private Plan Change. While this SHA application relies on a number of the same technical reports as the private plan change, this application for a SHA is independent of the plan change and will be assessed separately.
