The 3800ha Eweburn Farm is located 5 kilometres from Te Anau along Milford Road with magnificent views overlooking Lake Te Anau and the Fiordland National Park. The potential of the property to be utilised for a high end resort style development similar to Milbrook or Blanket Bay was identified and an outline development plan for the potential future use of the site was developed in conjunction with Boffa Miskell landscape architects.
A private plan change application to re-zone a 988.5ha area from Plains Rural Resource Area to Eweburn Resource Area is currently before the Southland District Council. The re-zoned land will allow for a combination of residential and visitor accommodation activities with some small scale commercial activities related to the visitor accommodation.
With the site being located along Milford Road the concept for the site was developed ensuring the existing ecology of the site was enhanced and the visual amenity of the site from surrounding areas was protected. The comprehensive development plan and rules package will ensure these objectives are achieved.
