Relocation of the Former Otakeho Church Resource Consent
Patricia and Mark Stevenson (the applicants) have applied for a resource consent to relocate a Category 2 Heritage Building, the former St John the Divine Anglican Church in Otakeho. The proposal would trigger Heritage rules in the South Taranaki District Plan and needs resource consent.
The applicants propose to relocate the deconsecrated church building from 4 Campbell Road, Otakeho to 3500 South Road, Pihama with the intentions of restoring the Heritage building, displaying local and family historic items, and making the building available to families connected with the church parish.
The application is available to view online through the links below. The resource consent application includes an assessment of environmental effects. A hard copy may also be inspected at the South Taranaki District Council Office, 105-111 Albion Street, Hāwera.
