Update 19 December 2019


This will be the last Auckland Regional Landfill email update for 2019.

What is happening with the consent process?

Waste Management lodged a resource consent application for the landfill in May this year, followed by a private plan change application in July.
We are currently responding to Auckland Council’s questions and preparing additional information that has been requested on the resource consent application.

The private plan change application is progressing through a number of internal Council processes before being considered for public notification. Unlike the resource consent process, Council does not publish plan
change request documentation until this public notification stage.
We understand the two processes are most likely to reach public notification in the first half of 2020.

The consent documentation remains available from Council at Auckland Council’s Service Centres or libraries in these locations:

  • Auckland CBD: Graham Street Service Centre, 35 Graham St, Auckland
  • Warkworth: Warkworth Service Centre, 1 Baxter St
  • Wellsford: Wellsford War Memorial Library, 13 Port Albert Rd
  • Orewa: Orewa Service Centre, 50 Centreway Rd

You can also contact Warwick Pascoe, Principal Project Lead at Auckland Council by email at to arrange a copy to be provided electronically.


Throughout 2019 we have consulted with iwi and the community, making our team available to whomever requests information and an audience for feedback. We will continue to do so in 2020 and encourage you to contact us.
If you have any feedback or questions, or would like to know more about the proposed landfill, please contact our team on or 0800 927 837.

Merry Christmas

We thank you for your continued interest in the proposed landfill and wish you and your family all the very
best for a safe and joyful festive season.

The team at Waste Management
