Welhom hearing

Two hearing commissioners have been appointed to oversee a plan change hearing for a retirement village proposal in Masterton.

Earlier last year, Welhom Developments asked Masterton District Council to rezone about 15 hectares of rural land near the Cashmere Oaks subdivision to build the village. About 9ha would be used for a potential retirement village, and the rest would be used for standard residential subdivision and development, Welhom Developments’ application said. A total of 254 houses could be built on the site; a mix of one and two-storey buildings with a maximum height of 10 metres. The site is currently used for pastoral grazing.

The plan change process requires a hearing to be held and decisions to be made on submissions, as well as on the plan change itself. In total, 11 submissions on the plan change have been made. The hearing has been set down for March 8 -10 at the Masterton Club between 9am-4pm. – NZLDR
