Titoki Sands, which proposes to establish a quarry on 51.7ha in central Tamahere on the corner of Tauwhare Rd and SH 1, has formally applied for resource consents.
The consent applications made to the Waikato District Council and Environment Waikato were publicly notified in the Waikato Times and Cambridge Edition on Wednesday, July 22.
Anyone can make a submission on the proposal. Submissions close at 5pm on August 19.
Details of the applications that were posted to Tamahere residents are in pdfs posted below.
Details of the application to Environment Waikato can be viewed online here.
The full application and supporting material can be viewed at the Waikato District Council office and the library at Ngaruawahia, the Environment Waikato office in Hamilton East, the Hamilton Public Library, and the Waipa District Council office in Cambridge.
The residents group that formed to oppose the Titoki quarry, Community & Environment Tamahere (CET), said it will be encouraging “everyone to submit a personal submission to help add weight to our cause.”
CET suggested affected residents phone AnaMaria d’Aubert, the Waikato District Council’s Planning Consultant, at Six Foot Four Ltd, ph 0800-492-452, and ask for a hard copy of the Titoki Sands, Tauwhare Road resource consent application to be posted to them.
“Everyone affected should have as much information as possible, CET advised. “We’d suggest you should also insist on a paper copy – not a CD version. This submission is large and we’d suggest a paper version is much more readable.”
CET said it would also be distributing flyers to Tamahere letterboxes shortly, and also emailing them to those on its database.
