Fast-track panel approves Waikanae retirement village
23 September 2021
An independent panel has given resource consent for a Summerset retirement village in Waikanae on the Kāpiti coast, north of Wellington.
The village will contain 217 independent living units, 56 assisted living suites, 20 memory care suites, and other amenities including a bowling green, library, and cinema.
The fast-track decision comes 94 working days after the application was lodged with the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).
The EPA is not involved in the decision-making – we provide advice and administrative support for the Panel Convener, Judge Newhook, and the expert consenting panels he appoints.
