Review of resource consent conditions for Te Rere Hau windfarm

Council has been reviewing the conditions of the resource consent for Te Rere Hau, to better manage and monitor noise emissions from the windfarm. Read the commissioner's decision below.

The reason for the review is that there were material inaccuracies in the statement of acoustic performance of the wind turbines used for the Te Rere Hau windfarm resource consent application.

Palmerston North City Council engaged Resonate Acoustics to undertake an independent acoustic review of the windfarm's resource consent conditions.

Resonate Acoustics recommended changes to the existing resource consent conditions.

If you have any queries about the review process, or the submissions process in general, please contact Craig Auckram, Senior Planner on 06 356 8199 or email
