Press "pause" on the development on Martin Ave / Leone Tce / Margaret Ave and consult

We are not against community housing and had been lead by Housing New Zealand to expect 2 storey townhouses on this site, which seems reasonable.

The proposed development is out of proportion with the surrounding neighbourhood and shows no consideration for the surrounding community, the local schools (primary, intermediate and secondary all already full), the environment, or the traffic flows and parking.

The affects of construction alone will be less than minor and the ongoing affect on the community will be profound. What's more, the design is poorly oriented to the sun and will not be a pleasant place to live long term.

We'd love to see this publicly notified so that the community, who will have to live with it for years to come, can be heard. Failing that we ask Housing New Zealand to meet with the community and listen to our concerns.
