link to Meeting Minutes from Committee to hear Submissions of the draft Conservation and Landscape Reserves Management Plan 2009.
There is some interesting reading in this. In particular;
- Objections raised at the time regarding the ratepayer funding of the pest proof fence.
- Objections raised regarding the loss of Public Access to Reserve Land.
- Acknowledgement that the Resource Consent for the Fence was already granted when this submission process took place.
This last point is particularly interesting, as it shows that the resource consent was awarded without a reserve management plan in place, and without a completed Geotechnical Assessment.
The Geotech Report was not completed until 2014, and can also be found on this site under Documents – Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust. Earthworks began within a week of this being submitted and received by Council.
