Hastings District Council seeks resource consent to upgrade an existing 80 metre limestone rock revetment (constructed in 2013) and to construct a new 400 metre limestone rock revetment (extending west, from the existing revetment) at Clifton Beach (495 and 466 Clifton Road). The purpose of the revetment is to protect an existing access road that runs from the end of Clifton Road, parallel to the beach, over private land (Clifton Station), to the Clifton No. 1 Camp, Clifton Marine Club and boat ramp which are located within the Clifton Domain. The proposed works include realigning the access road further inland (within Clifton Station) by up to 5 metres through a recorded archaeological site (W21/176) comprising three borrow pits and several house-sites (no longer visible on the surface) to the east of the borrow pits, and the construction of a beach access ramp at the northern end of the revetment.
The subject sites are zoned Rural and Open Space 4-03 and are located within the Coastal Character Landscape 1 (CCL1). The proposal requires resource consent for a structure not provided for within the Rural zone, for a building with a gross floor area greater than 50m² (revetment) which does not meet the required yard setbacks and for earthworks exceeding the maximum quantity in any 12 month period, and may not meet the standard for building coverage. Overall, the proposal is for a Non-Complying Activity.
The land to which the application applies is as follows:
Please contact Catherine Boulton on 871 5000 if you have any queries about the application.

You may make a submission by sending a written or electronic submission to the Hastings District Council, Private Bag 9002, Hastings 4156. The submission must be on ‘Form 13’.
