Background to review
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 has engaged Resonate Acoustics to undertake an independent acoustic review of the existing conditions of the resource consent for the Te Rere Hau windfarm.
Resonate Acoustics has recommended changes to the existing resource consent conditions.
A document has been compiled that includes the notification decision, a summary of the Resonate Acoustics report, the Resonate Acoustics review, the existing resource consent conditions and the proposed amended conditions. This does not include the court decisions that preceded this process. This document has been sent to directly served residents.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
