Northgate Business Park is zoned Industrial.
The key permitted development controls and performance criteria are:
Streams will have extensive planting along their banks, which has been approved in consultation with both the local iwi and Environment Waikato. The chosen plant species support bird life and provide shelter for the aquatic species that hide under the banks of the streams.
Intermittent pedestrian access to the stormwater ponds enable employees in the Northgate Business Park to enjoy the peaceful setting in a recreational environment that is removed from the office yet easily accessible for a lunchtime walk or run.
All wastewater at Northgate Business Park is pumped to the upgraded wastewater treatment plant north of Ngaruawahia.
