Taupo East Urban Lands

Taupo District Council had a significant project to develop an area adjacent to the State Highway One bypass.

We advised on the development of the master plan and subdivision layouts that provide for around 2000 homes, a town centre and a tertiary education campus.  The masterplan makes extensive use of cycle paths and promotes numerous pedestrian-friendly aspects.

After preparing an assessment we appeared as an expert witness for the consent hearing.
