Winstones Aggregates Ltd Resource Consent Application
Greater Wellington Regional Council, Hutt City Council and Porirua City Council have received an application for resource consents from Winstone Aggregates Ltd. They have applied to construct, operate and maintain a 13.78 hectare cleanfill with a total capacity of 1,750,000m3, which includes:
- the permanent diversion and piping of approximately 1,658m of un-named tributaries of the Pauatahanui Stream;
- discharges to land, water and air associated with the construction and operation of the cleanfill;
- bulk earthworks on Felix Road (paper road) to provide access to the cleanfill in an area identified as a General Recreation Activity area;
- road works on State Highway 58 (SH58); and
- to operate, maintain and eventually close a cleanfill in a Rural Zone.
The proposed cleanfill is to be developed in four stages and will take approximately 57 years + 6 months to reach capacity.
