The process so far

The process so far - Dominion and Valley roads

One of our roles is to maximise outcomes from land that Auckland Council owns. We work with the private sector to make the most of sites like Dominion and Valley roads.

It’s part of the big picture for Tāmaki Makaurau over the next 30 years, where we want to radically improve the quality of urban living and help create a prosperous city.

In October 2016 Eke Panuku applied for resource consent for a mix of apartments, retail space, and car parks at Dominion and Valley roads. We also worked with the council’s Urban Design Panel and Heritage Advisory Panel on the design considering the area’s special character.

We asked for our application to be notified to the public, since our site lies in a character area and the development would be higher than permitted in places. This meant that residents got the chance to have their say.

Following public submissions and a hearing in April-July 2018, the independent hearing commissioners refused resource consent in August 2018. Following this Eke Panuku worked through various issues and consent conditions mostly around the location of height across the site, and noise and vibration through the construction period. An Environment Court decision issued in December 2020, granted Eke Panuku resource consent to develop this site.

From October 2021, this site will be marketed for sale by Bayleys, on behalf of Eke Panuku. All purchaser enquiries can be directed to Gerald Rundle, by email or +64 27 286 4620.
