Variation to Consent for Quarry on Whenuku Road
South Taranaki District Council (STDC) has received an application from Horizon Trust Management Ltd for a change to the conditions of resource consent RML14076. The existing consent provides for the operation of the quarry located at 278 Whenuku Road, Hawera.
The application is to change condition 17 of the consent, increasing the maximum number of quarry-related heavy vehicle movements allowed along Whenuku Road. The application is for an increase from 16 movements per day (8 heavy vehicles to and from the site) to a maximum of 80 movements per day (40 heavy vehicles to and from the site), with provision for up to 120 movements per day (60 heavy vehicles to and from the site) for up to 10 days per financial year (that is, 1 July to 30 June). The annual extraction rate of material from the quarry would be in the order of 55,000m3, in excess of that currently consented to (20,000m3 per annum).
The application is available to view online through the links below. The resource consent application includes an assessment of environmental effects. A hard copy may also be inspected at the South Taranaki District Council Office, 105-111 Albion Street, Hāwera.
The submission period for the application closes at 4.30pm on Wednesday 12 August 2020. Submissions must be made via the submission form below and can be emailed to email@example.com or physically submitted to the Hāwera Council office or your local LibraryPlus.
