Quarry commissioners seek more info


The commissioners hearing the Titoki Sands quarry resource consent application are seeking more information from the company.

The hearing into the application to operate a quarry on a 52-hectare site in central Tamahere to extract up to 350,000 cubic metres of sand a year was adjourned on September 29. The commissioners have since decided that they require further information.

They are seeking more detail on the natural character of the Mangaone Stream Gully and effects of a proposal to lower its lip by up to 8m, as well as other details on the site’s soil properties and management of sand and silt.

The commissioners require Titoki Sands to provide the additional information by this Friday (October 15) or if unable to do that to notify them by Wednesday when it will be available.

The hearing could be further adjourned depending on when the information is made available.

The commissioners say they have sufficient information on all other matters and will be able to make a decision once the additional information sought is provided.
