Tricky issues with the planned second stage of the Lyndhurst subdivision in Frimley have been solved, with Council coming up with a solution that halves the cost of managing storm water.
Hastings District Council agreed today (July 19) to buy a nearby piece of land on which to manage storm water.
The plan would see the cost of storm water disposal drop from $5 million to $2.5m.
Getting Lyndhurst stage two ready for developers to subdivide could potentially bring 270 sections onto the market in about 12 months’ time. The exact number and timing would be up to the owners and developers of the land. Some sections could be available much earlier.
But detailed planning for services for stage 2 had shown that ground conditions for the originally planned stage two solution were markedly different to those encountered for the first stage.
A high water table and unstable ground for the stage two would have made putting the required large pipes for storm water in very expensive, councillors heard.
To avoid the large costs, Council staff had come up with an alternative option using a piece of land next to the proposed subdivision that could be purchased and was large enough to cope with the storm water from the subdivision.
Councillors heard that the site “is ideally situated and large enough to provide in excess of the 50 year storm water design”.
