Description of proposal

Wellington City Council, under section 342(1) of the Local Government Act 1974, proposes to ‘stop’ 51 m² of legal-road land (the Land) on Lemnos Avenue.

Council has determined that it no longer requires this land for public road purposes and that the land is surplus to operational requirements.

The Land (Sections 1 and 2 SO 597532) adjoins 7 Lemnos Avenue, Karori (Lot 13 DP 3361, held on ROT WN312/108). Once the 51 m2 of road land is stopped, Section 1 SO 597532 will be sold to the owner of 7 Lemnos Avenue and the land titles amalgamated. Section 2 SO 597532 will remain in Council ownership.

Once the land is stopped, any future buildings or activities thereon will be governed by the Wellington City Council District Plan.
