BIKE PARK IN THE BIRKENHEAD WAR MEMORIAL PARK.
Client: Auckland Council
Services: Planning & Policy, Contaminated Land, Resource Consents
4Sight provided planning and contaminated land services to Auckland Council’s Parks department to enable delivery of a new bike park within the Birkenhead War Memorial Park. The track opened in May 2016.
4Sight took a collaborative approach with the project team to achieve the design intention for a pump bike track. Our contaminated land specialists undertook a contaminated soil review to assess risks and requirements under the relevant standards including National Environmental Standard for the Protection of Human Health against Contamination, Auckland Council Regional Plan: Air, Land and Water, and Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan. The team were able to overcome potentially contaminated soil hurdles during the consent process by demonstrating that permitted activity conditions could be met during physical works.
4Sight’s Planning team also prepared and managed the resource consent process, providing initial feedback on the site and design brief, addressing district and regional planning requirements. 4Sight then handled specific issues raised during the consenting process such as stormwater management, intensity and scale of use, noise and other potential effects on residential sites. Non-notified consent was achieved.
