BELLFIELD ESTATE - FAQs
Is Bellfield Estate zoned a Special Housing Area? What does this mean?
Yes, Bellfield Estate has been designated a Special Housing Area (SHA). As a measure to counter Auckland’s housing crisis, SHAs were established across the city where fast-track development could take place. Key to being designated SHA status, Bellfield Estate will be providing at least 10% of affordable housing within the development.
How many homes will be built?
Papakura is considered an area of high demand for new homes and we hope to develop approximately 500 land & house packages to help meet this need.
Does Bellfield Estate have public transport access?
Specific roads within the development have been designed to accommodate a bus route. We will also be building a bus stop outside the development on Opaheke Road as part of our works.
Who is the development team?
A high quality team with extensive experience, the project is led by our in-house project managers and supported by a strong team that includes:
Planning Focus Ltd - Planner
Maven Associates Ltd - Engineer
Reset Urban Ltd - Landscaper
Brewer Davidson Ltd - Architect
Has work on Bellfield Estate commenced?

Do I need OIO consent to purchase the property?
Unless you are a NZ citizen, Australian citizen or Singaporean citizen, you may require OIO consent to purchase the property. In some cases, if you qualify as “NZ resident” as the term is defined in the Overseas Investment Act 2005, consent may not be required. Visit the OIO website (here) to obtain new information as to whether you need to apply for OIO consent. We recommend that you discuss your situation with your lawyer to confirm whether you will need OIO consent to purchase the property.
