The Maymorn Structure Plan, which, during the next 20 years, could realise a community of 1800 properties of various density and housing more than 4000 people, will be sited on the north-eastern corner of the Mangaroa Valley and bound by the river and surround- ing hills. The detailed plan, which already has been more than five years in development under the umbrella of the city s Urban Growth Strategy, will now be available for public input and con- sultation, with submissions and hearings in late August. Its adop- tion or rejection will be decided the following month. A go-ahead would mean changes in the city s district plan to zoning and land use of the area. None of the proposed 14 stage development is on land owned by the city, and the council s pro- active role is described as that of policy maker, regulator, service provider and development facilitator. Discussion at Wednesday s pol- icy committee (ahead of this evening s confirming vote) was brief, with mayor Wayne Guppy and the 10-person council having gone through the proposal s detail in several workshops in recent weeks. Several councillors did speak about the overall proposal, calling for a good understanding from the public about the council s intentions. This is an exciting concept for Upper Hutt. We are creating a vil- lage in a rural environment that will be the envy of a lot of other local authorities in the . . . region, councillor Nellie Gillies said. It s a whole new way of looking at development, she said, asking people to read it thoroughly and impartially even though the proj- ect was years away from a start and has to be seen in that light . Pat Christianson said Upper Hutt was fortunate it was able to promote such a development. Not many councils in New Zea- land could do this like this. Others spoke of the importance of the city s commitment to the sustainability of the long-term planning project. My concern is we really push the sustainability [of it] . . . so that it s not just a word, Mary Archibald said. Dean Rabbitt agreed. This is a great oppor- tunity to signal our commitment to sustainability, development and standards. Phil Goff tackles UH issues By JIMMY NESS Labour Party leader Phil Goff returns to Upper Hutt today. Mr Goff, who toured the city in February, will be speaking with prominent community members about local issues. Labour s Rimutaka MP Chris Hipkins will also attend. Following a senior citizens afternoon tea at the King Lion Hall, Mr Goff will visit Twin Lakes Sheetmetals to meet man- aging director Steve Hockly. The business has been running since 1987 and is described as an outstand- ing example of Upper Hutt s manufacturing skills. At about 4.30pm, he visits Export Meats to speak to owner Steve Bai- ley, who has concerns about the impact of rising prices on local families. The tour will end with a visit to the Upper Hutt Cosmopolitan Club about 5.15pm, where Mr Goff will meet with Upper Hutt RSA president Syd Giles.
