4Sight have assisted Les Mills with planning services and specialist technical input over the years to assist them in meeting their business vision.
A proactive and solution-focused approach was adopted in all projects, with most of the projects involving various planning issues (from archaeology and parking through to urban design and acoustics) and a wide range of technical input. The lead planners in each project coordinating all inputs, while managing timeframes and client expectations. The projects were discussed with consenting authorities early on in the process to ensure a comprehensive application package was made addressing all the relevant issues.
4Sight have assisted Les Mills in preparing and securing resource consents for fitness centre facilities in a number of locations across New Zealand, along with submissions on Proposed District Plans and potential new fitness centre sites. 4Sight has been involved in obtaining resource consent for the new fitness centre facilities in Newmarket (Auckland), and Hamilton. Most recently, 4Sight has been successful in securing resource consent for the redevelopment of the ‘flagship’ Victoria Street facility, which involves the construction of a new 5 storey building, upgrading of the existing buildings and services and associated regional consents.
4Sight’s work has included the initial scoping/feasibility of new and redeveloped sites, preparation of Assessments of Environmental Effects, and liaising with Council staff and the Les Mills project teams on further information requests and draft consent conditions. We have also assisted Les Mills with submissions to the Auckland Proposed Unitary Plan and the presentation of associated evidence to the independent hearings panel.
The preparation and delivery of multiple resource consents across the country within scope, budget and timeframes. 4Sight’s involvement in multiple applications has resulted in a comprehensive understanding of key issues associated with the fitness centre facilities/sites and a strong and ongoing relationship with Les Mills.
