Tolhopf Road Rural Subdivision, Puhoi

The proposals included 22 residential lots and a stage 4 extension of Tolhopf Road. The subdivision was on the basis of the protection of extensive areas of native bush (Approx 181ha). A landscape and visual assessment was provided with landscape guidelines, specific development controls, building guidelines and comprehensive revegetation with low plantings, vegetative swales and fencing requirements. Lots were rated as to sensitivity and attributed with appropriate controls in response to 4 categories of visibility. The site was 47km north of Auckland and 6km west of the SH1, well clear of Pakiri Village.
