Living with nature

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a residential development within an existing forested environment; something that’s uncommon in the Wellington region.

We’re proposing housing that fits sensitively along the forest ridgetops, set within mature pine and regenerating native forest. This would be a distinctive and attractive option for buyers within the current housing market.

Live within
the forest

Our concept will attract people looking for alternatives to conventional suburban living. Clustered housing will encourage social interaction between neighbours, and this will be enhanced by the network of walkways and cycleways that will connect and foster a sense of community.

Our vision

Water sensitive urban design

We will be using ‘water sensitive urban design’ principles when we plan for residential development. We are fully committed to ensuring that the development is sensitive to its surroundings and the existing communities in Pinehaven and Silverstream.

Land swap

The land swap would place areas of steeper land under the control of Council. Most of this land would be native or pine forest, and would become a public reserve with catchment management benefits.
