Wellington City Councillors have voted 7-5 to sell or lease of council-owned land at Shelly Bay for a Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust development.

The trust and its partner the Wellington Company want to build 350 dwellings, a boutique hotel, shops and other services on the former air force base on the Miramar Peninsula.

The council will sell about a third of a hectares for housing and retain 2.6 hectares of publicly accessible land which will be used for public space, waterfront promenade and road access.

A further 0.6 hectares of land and two buildings will be leased for 125-years for commercial, mixed-used development.

Deputy Mayor Paul Eagle said the council received 1100 submissions and made some changes to its original proposal, including addressing traffic concerns, capping its infrastructure spending at $10 million, upgrading water supply and waste infrastructure to support future development across the wider Miramar Peninsula, and working with the iwi to better accommodate the needs of little blue penguins.
