It is critical to protect Karanui’s unique environment and surrounds today and into the future.
To ensure all residents understand the importance of protecting Karanui’s environment as well as their investment, a number of conditions have been developed to reinforce the role of residents as kaitiakitanga, and to maintain the high value of proper-ties within Karanui.
The council has also imposed on Karanui a number of conditions on housing, landscaping, water, waste, rubbish, maintenance and building re-strictions.
To enhance the development of Karanui’s open and inclusive community:
There are some quality standards for residential buildings within Karanui to ensure the overall ambience of the development is maintained. To achieve sense of community and ensure enjoyment for all residents, along with council requirements the following core building principles apply:
It is important to protect the existing mature indigenous trees within Karanui, which add to the unique character of the community.
This protection also extends to riparian planting, which has been undertaken to enhance the environmental health of the local streams and forests. Riparian areas will also be fenced as needed by the developer to protect these precious habitats from damage. Owners of these areas will be required to maintain weed and pest controls, after Evo Holdings has completed its three year establishment phase.
There are height restrictions for some planting on specific lots where shading of neighbours is of particular concern.
It is vital to protect the incredible beautiful natural surrounds of Karanui, including the wide range of native flora and fauna that thrive in and around the site. Karanui residents are kaitiakitanga of this precious resource, and will support the wellbeing of the environment in the following ways:
The roadways have been specifically designed to slow traffic movements, for the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. For this reason, any activity that causes an increase in heavy traffic is not appropriate, along with the parking of heavy commercial vehicles within Karanui.
To ensure the roadways always look their best, residents will keep tidy the roadside drains and berm in front of their section, along with maintaining any dry stone walls and boundary fences.
All letterboxes will be supplied by the Developer and will be maintained by the owner in same position and style.
Extensive paths have been built throughout Karanui, and most will sit under the ownership of a charitable trust to ensure all residents have public access rights and to continue maintenance. Through pasture, walkways will be fenced to protect from stock. These fences along with dog-proof fencing and riparian fencing are to be maintained by the adjoining owner.
All Karanui residents will be responsible for keeping the community clean and tidy. This means avoiding the accumulation of rubbish on either the property or the adjoining roadside – particularly the swale drainage. Secondary treatment waste water disposal systems are also necessary for every lot to help protect the environment.
Great efforts have been made to accommodate small farmlets within Karanui, and in turn these residents will support the community by ensuring stock ratios are low and that cattle are young (under 2 years), with no adult male stock on the farm. If the surrounding residential environment causes concerns for any stock, they will be removed for their own benefit.
Fire fighting water supplies are included on some lots for the use of the fire service. The lot owner tasked with replenishing supply in reasonable time when required.
