Enterprise Miramar have taken out a Judicial Review seeking to overturn the Resource Consent granted by Wellington City Council for a development at Shelly Bay. Enterprise Miramar is seeking financial support as High Court judicial review proceedings are expensive.

The Shelly Bay development is large in size and footprint and it will, as a result, change this part of the Peninsula in a range of different ways, including in terms of its existing character.

For instance, the consented development includes apartment buildings up to 27 metres high.

Some of those buildings appear to be proposed to be built on land that is zoned as open space.

It is not clear from the Council’s decisions what land will remain in Council ownership and on what terms after construction begins.

Nor is it clear from the Council’s decisions what changes require to be made to existing roading and water services for Shelly Bay, and how much the Council (Rate payers) will ultimately end up paying to subsidise those changes.

The Council’s decisions are also silent on what happens, and who pays to continue to support the development, if sea levels rise as they are predicted to in the future.

The resource consent allows construction at the site for 13 years. Inevitably that will affect access to Shelly Bay.

The construction traffic will also affect users of Shelly Bay Road, including cyclists and walkers.

Yes, Shelly Bay should be developed, but in Enterprise Miramar’s view not in this way.

As consent has been granted to The Wellington Company to develop Shelly Bay under special housing legislation passed by the previous Government, the only way to now prevent that from happening is to challenge the consent decision in the High Court. That is what Enterprise Miramar is doing.

Our judicial review case is set to be heard in the High Court at Wellington on 5-6 March 2018.

You can help us by donating through our “Give a little” page. Any contribution you make no matter how big or small is gratefully appreciated.

If you have any questions or are interested in receiving updates, please email and we will put you on the mailing list and keep you up to date as things unfold. All bulk emails are BCC’d to protect your privacy.

If we get more donations than we need to fight the case, any surplus will be put towards Enterprise Miramar’s long term goal of securing a future for Shelly Bay and other land on the Peninsula that is appropriate for the rich history of the site, its coastal setting and the potential for a true legacy for all Wellingtonians.

Enterprise Miramar is an incorporated society and all donations that we receive will be accounted for and subject to Enterprise Miramar’s rules as an incorporated society.
