Garage for a Farrari

The proposal involves construction of a 72m2 garage on top of an existing concreted parking area and as such no earthworks will be required. The site has an existing building coverage of 2.3% previously consented under LUC0182/21. It is proposed that with the addition of the garage, the total building coverage on the site will increase to 2.5% (995m2).

Overall, compliance with most of the bulk and location rules of the District Plan is (otherwise) achieved.

The proposal is consistent with the relevant objectives and policies of the Operative and Proposed District Plans.
