Coromandel Business Park
Karl provided a lead role in the project management, preparation and implementation of Plan Change 13 to the Thames- Coromandel District Plan. The Plan change involved the development of the Coromandel Business Park Structure Plan. This was a zone change and structure planning exercise to encourage business opportunities within iconic Coromandel Town. The project resulted in the restoration of wetland system and riparian margins on the Huaroa Stream and Coromandel Harbour. Plan Change 13 rezoned 11ha of land to a "light industrial" zone. It was approved by a panel of independent Commissioners in 2012. The decision was not appealed to the environment court.
