How we did it

This newly completed centre caters for 40 children, is designed along the shape of a whare, is filled with natural light and contains two separate age group rooms. While the application did not proceed through council on a non-notified basis, our team were able to prepare and present a solid case at the hearing that demonstrated to the commissioners that any adverse effects could be avoided, remedied or mitigated. Consent was granted, appealed by several of the neighbours who submitted opposing the application and subsequently approved through an Environment Court Consent Order.
