WHEN WILL CONSTRUCTION ON THE FACILITY START AND FINISH?

Pita Street Developments (PSD) must obtain the necessary consents and approvals before construction can begin.  Once these are obtained PSD will enter into a further design phase and tender the work required for construction.  The timeframe for obtaining approvals and for the further design and tendering work is unknown at this stage, so no start date can be provided for construction.

When construction commences, it is likely to take around 12-18 months to complete the project.

HOW CAN I SUPPORT OR OBJECT TO THE PROJECT?

The project will be publicly notified and all affected and interested parties can have their say on the project by making a written submission and, if they wish by presenting their submission in person at a hearing under the Resource Management Act (RMA).
