Karori Stream, from the Western Wastewater Treatment Plant to the South Coast in the vicinity of the Karori Stream Mouth.
Summary of Proposal:
The applicant currently holds resource consent to discharge treated wastewater via a pipeline from the Western Wastewater Treatment Plant. The conditions of the resource consent require the construction of a new wastewater pipeline by 2023. The applicant considers that the existing pipeline has a serviceable lifespan which goes beyond 2023 and therefore, does not need replacement in the short term.
This application seeks to cancel the condition on their current resource consent which requires the construction of a replacement wastewater pipeline by December 2023.
