Description of Proposal
Bupa New Zealand's proposal is to build a retirement village and care home complex within the Main Rural Zone consisting of 99 Retirement villas, 19 retirement apartments, 49 care home rooms, and associated care facilities.
The proposed development would include kitchens, nursing stations, communal dining and lounge areas, cafe and visitor, service, reception and administration areas. There'd be a central green with integrated walkways, visitor and staff car parking, comprehensive landscape plantings, two road access points to Ulyatt Road, and a new footpath, kerb and channel along Ulyatt Road. It'd require up to 80,000m3 of earthworks to develop the site.
The application which follows includes an assessment of environmental effects. You can inspect or obtain a copy of the application at Napier City Council. If you have any questions about it, please contact Shane Lambert, NCC Senior Resource Consents Planner on +64 9 835 7579.
