While the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 doesnt
provide for formal consultation on the establishment of special housing
areas, QLDCs elected members wish to understand how the local
community feels about these proposals.

QLDC Chief Executive Mike Theelen noted Council is still considering a
separate SHA proposal, Laurel Hills, which will also be considered at the
18 April Council meeting.
Council paused a decision on Laurel Hills at their last meeting in order
to gain community feedback on all of these Ladies Mile SHA proposals
first. Elected members will then have a holistic view of the three
proposals, and the transport implications, and will consider them
together in April, said Mr Theelen.
In order to do this, there is an online feedback form and EOI details on
the QLDC website: http://www.qldc.govt.nz/your-council/your-views.
Feedback will close at 5.00pm on 11 April 2019 and these proposals will
be considered by the council at its next meeting on 18 April 2019 in
