The Parklands Residential Estate has been developed on 120-hectare former Lagoon Farm site. Work began here in 2005: Parklands now numbers more than 500 homes and growing.
Planning Started: 2000
Construction Started: April 2005
Completed: Not Completed
Work is well underway on the third area of Parklands, otherwise known as Parklands Area 3.
Located south of the Hawke’s Bay Airport, Lagoon Farm originally formed part of a much more expansive Ahuriri Estuary. The 1931 earthquake uplifted the land in this area, considerably reducing the size of the lagoon.
Lagoon Farm passed into Napier City Council ownership in 1989 local government restructuring. The Napier Urban Growth Strategy of 1999 identified the need to develop part of the farm as residential sections to meet the demand for new housing in the city.
When the Council ratified its Proposed District Plan in November 2000, 120 hectares of the farm were rezoned Residential.
The development area, named Parklands Residential Estate, is located on the south side of Prebensen Drive and west of Tamatea Drive.
Infrastructural work began in April 2005 on the first area, comprising 232 lots, bordered by Tamatea Drive, Westminster Avenue, Orotu Drive and Pacific Avenue, and was completed four years later.
Area 2 added a further 247 sections between Pacific Avenue and Prebensen Drive, bordered by Orotu Drive to the west. This area was connected to Prebensen Drive with a roundabout in 2015.
Construction of the first three stages of Area 3, to the west of Orutu Drive, began in June 2016.
The fourth of eleven stages was completed in February 2018, and preparation for the construction of Stage 5 is now underway. It's anticipated this work will be completed in early 2019.
