Application to change consent conditions for Turitea Wind Farm

Application withdrawn.

In November 2021 Mercury NZ Ltd applied to vary four consent conditions in relation to its Turitea South Wind Farm. The change of conditions was to enable a higher truck and light vehicle movements to the southern site access of the wind farm.

We determined that the application required notification under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). We received 40 Submissions on Mercury NZ’s application. Mercury NZ requested direct referral to the Environment Court. This was allowed by Council in a decision published in February 2022. An RMA Section 87F report was completed and released publicly.  

Mercury NZ informed us in April 2022 that it had withdrawn its application to vary the conditions of its resource consent.
