Weighing up tip consent

Independent commissioners are deciding whether to grant resource consent for a cleanfill tip on Attwood Farm in Pioneer Lane, Kumeu.

The council has not given resource consent, Auckland Council senior media adviser Nigel Horrocks says.

Independent commissioners are making the decision on whether resource consent should be granted.

While council staff may have recommended it be granted subject to conditions, Mr Horrocks says, it is up to the commissioners to weigh the evidence, including from the opposition to the tip, and then make a ruling one way or the other.
