All Hallows Church and the neighbouring block of bush at 220 Beach Rd have been sold. The new owner has submitted plans for a 150 place child care centre. The plans as submitted push the boundaries on many fronts so it has been publicly notified, meaning you can have input into the resource consent process. Concerns include:
removal of almost all the protected vegetation on the site except for two large pohutukawa
encroachment into front and side yards
a large bank which will intrude into public land along with the underground carpark entry stucture
Other issues of concern include traffic, parking and noise.
Centennial Park Bush Society has submitted on this development proposal (see Submission CPBS child care centre) and we encourage as many of you as possible to do the same.
More information on the development proposal can be found on the council website – look for 218-220 Beach Rd, Campbells Bay.
Local residents have put together a proforma Childcare centre submission which you may choose to use. Please note a copy of this must be sent to the applicant.

With a park at its heart, two streams, a beautiful beach and pockets of privately-owned native bush Campbells Bay is already an urban wildlife haven. To help keep it that way, Centennial Park Bush Society has founded CBUS – The Campbells Bay Urban Sanctuary – see more under About Us.
