Update 3 December 2018


Since the Overseas Investment Office approval for the purchase of land identified for a proposed new Class 1 Landfill for the Auckland region, Waste Management has been engaging with iwi, local stakeholders and the community.

Four Open Days were held at Springhill Estate, two in October and two just in the last week.

We were pleased to have more than 200 people attend across the four days, providing useful feedback, asking questions and learning more about our proposal.

We will continue to engage in consultation with iwi, local stakeholders and the community as we prepare our documentation for the resource consenting process.

Feedback and questions we receive from our engagement and consultation will be considered as part of our resource consent application.

For this project, Waste Management have asked that Auckland Council publically notify the consent application. We know this project is an important and significant part of the region’s future infrastructure and that many people will be interested to provide comment.
Being a publically notified process will mean that anyone is able to obtain a copy of the consent application that we lodge, make a submission and be heard during the consent hearing.  

We are expecting to lodge our consent application early in 2019.

We would like to thank all iwi, local stakeholders and the broader community who have engaged with us so far.
