Yet more housing in the Maitai Valley!
The main purpose of this newsletter is to alert you to the Nelson City Council consultation on its Future Development Strategy 2022 (FDS); which identifies 1100 potential housing sites in the Maitai. As you’ll know the Kaka Valley (behind Denne’s Hole) is subject of a plan change request for a 750 houses. Under the new FDS this would be upped to 900 houses, plus another 200 across the river (on the Sunday Hole side) for an area named Orchard Flats.
