Briscoes managing director Rod Duke has withdrawn his bid for permission to land his helicopter at his new Herne Bay home up to six times a week.
Mr Duke had gone to the Environment Court to appeal against Auckland Council's decision to allow only three landings and takeoffs a week.
Neighbours had expressed noise and safety concerns.
Mr Duke's lawyer filed a memorandum with the court on Friday withdrawing the appeal against the consent conditions, the council said.
The council had now closed the file.
Mr Duke and wife Patricia are building a mansion on Sarsfield Street in Herne Bay.
They have consent from the Auckland Council to transform the boat shed at the property, which overlooks the popular Sentinel Beach Reserve, into a helicopter pad.
Mr Duke had said he needed to use a helicopter up to six times a week so he could fly to golf and show visitors around the city.
