Business – Light Industry Zone with special overlays as classified under the Waiuku Precinct – Sub-precinct B.
The Waiuku Precinct comprises approximately 107 hectares of land to the east of Waiuku township and is strategically situated adjacent to two main roads:
• Glenbrook- Waiuku Road, the main road that leads to the steel mill at Glenbrook and to State Highway 1; and
• Waiuku Road, the main road that leads to Pukekohe.
The location of the precinct at this strategic intersection means that its future development for predominantly light industrial activities will not result in heavy vehicles needing to pass through Waiuku township to reach State Highway 1 or Pukekohe.
The Waiuku Precinct is currently being used for rural activities. Vegetation in the precinct consists of shelterbelts, native bush, pasture and crops. The precinct falls outside any approved urban stormwater catchment area for Waiuku.
The precinct recognises that stormwater is a constraint to development and a stormwater network discharge consent for the catchment is required prior to subdivision and development occurring. The precinct is subject to the Quality Sensitive Aquifer Management Areas Overlay and the High Use Aquifer Management Areas Overlay.
Future subdivision and development within the precinct is subject to Waiuku Precinct: Precinct plan 1.
Buildings within Sub-precinct B must not exceed 18m in height
Height in relation to boundary
In Sub-precinct B any part of building or sign must not exceed a height of 3m plus the shortest horizontal distance between that part of the building and the boundary with land that is not located in Sub-precinct B.
A minimum 20m yard must be provided along any boundary with the Glenbrook Vintage Railway line, and must be planted with a mixture of trees, shrubs or ground cover plants (including grass) within and along the full extent of the yard to provide a densely planted visual buffer for a depth of at least 3m and must be appropriately maintained thereafter.
