HELPING NEW ZEALAND BUSINESSES MEET THEIR CONSENTING NEEDS
To meet their growing business needs, 4Sight was engaged to provide planning advice and assist Thornton Auctions with obtaining resource consent and a liquor license for their new premises in a light industrial in Mount Wellington.
4Sight were able to successfully secure a non-complying resource consent on a non-notified basis and obtain a liquor license for a new auction house for Thornton Auctions in a light industrial area in Mount Wellington.
Due to the sales nature of auctions, auction houses are considered as retail activities which are generally discouraged in industrial zones as they are primarily for activities such as manufacturing and distribution. Despite this, 4Sight recognised the unique nature and needs of auction houses that sets them apart from your typical ‘retail activities' and which makes them well-suited to commercial and light industrial areas. 4Sight managed the consenting process, provided strong justification, and overcame obstacles to delivery of consent decisions for their client.
