About the proposed land exchange at Three Kings Quarry

In June 2017 we entered into an initial land exchange agreement with Fletchers in Three Kings. Under this agreement, Fletchers will develop a sports field (currently under construction) as part of its overall development of the former Three Kings quarry site. This will be exchanged for land on the perimeter which is considered more suitable for residential developments. Since the first exchange, we determined that one part of the residential land on the western side of the area (known as Superlot G) could be exchanged for the existing depot and surrounding land.

About the updated land exchange

The council land now identified for exchange with Fletchers is the existing AIM Services depot site at Three Kings. This site also includes small adjoining parcels of land. We want to combine multiple smaller parcels of land in this location to create a more comprehensive development site. Some of the land has reserve status and there will also be a small portion of road affected. The Fletchers owned land to be exchanged is made up of two lots zoned for residential development located to the west of the depot. These are connected to the reserve on the south side of the maunga. AIM Services (a contractor to the council) intends to vacate the property in the near future. Land Advisory Services staff are undertaking the statutory requirements (public notification under S15 of the Reserves Act 1977) and are negotiating details of the agreement with Fletchers. Fletchers agrees with the exchange in principle. The exchange will allow for the western field to be developed as an additional sports field. It will also preserve the land surrounding the maunga in as near natural state as possible. Another advantage is that the depot site could be developed for residential services, and possibly include retail on the ground floor.
