The Hobsonville Land Company, in conjunction with Waitakere Properties Limited, has applied to the Auckland Regional Council (ARC) for resource consents to authorise the redevelopment of the Landing area which incorporates the construction, occupation and use of structures (including a ferry wharf, marina, boardwalks, large boat launching facility, public boat ramp and beach) and activities in the coastal marine area. Applications have also been made to the Waitakere City Council (WCC) for activities on the land associated with the coastal structures such as earthworks, vegetation clearance and car parking.

Submissions on the applications close with the ARC and WCC on 12 February 2010.

The coastal consent applications are the first step in the redevelopment of the Landing area. Consultation regarding the design and activities at the Landing will be progressed through this year.
