Will the consent be notified?
We are confused with the mixed message Council is giving us over whether consents for the road will be notified or not and whether the proposal to shift the designation of the road will be notified or not. The February ’08 communication (Northern Growth Management Framework newsletter) advised that the resource consent for the proposed road will be publicly notified and determined by independent commissioners.
Please clarify what the situation is relating to notification of consents and designation.
City Council response
We will ask for consent applications to both the GWRC and WCC to be publicly notified. This will give all members of the public [the opportunity] to make submissions if they wish to. As this is a WCC project the consent applications will be heard by an independent commissioner.
