Huapai Triangle

We have been engaged by landowners within the Huapai Triangle area to provide planning and land development input since the plans was accepted as Special Housing Area and through the plan change phase.  We are working together with multiple landowners to faciliate the land use and subdivision consents for the residential/ commerical development of the area.  We are project managing the land development for each of these three land owners.  Overall the Huapai Triangle will result in 1200 residential sites being deveolped.



Cato Bolam and Hopper Developments have worked together from the outset of the Pauanui Waterways, Whitianga Waterways (Coromandel Peninsula) and Marsden Cove (Whangarei Harbour) projects to create some of New Zealand’s most impressive residential sites. Our planners and surveyors overcame unique challenges including complex canal development land transfer surveys and mooring and canal easements. We worked closely with local and regional councils to address strategic and master planning issues and obtain subdivision and land use resource consents for the projects.



Karanui is a 74 lot rural residential development with a strong focus on natural landform, low impact design methods and maximising ecological linkages, we worked in a developer centred approach handling full project management for this complex development.  Our works included Master Planning of an initial 200 lot design, Urban Design and production of detailed scheme plans, Management Plan Production including building guidelines and service areas.
