Oppose Watercare’s plans to build a new Water Treatment Plant on the Manuka Road site, Clark Bush Track, Woodlands Park Road (northern site) and the Exhibition Drive area.
Encourage Watercare to participate in genuine engagement and consultation efforts with local conservation and community groups. In particular this should involve giving due consideration to exploring alternative sites and design solutions.
Hold Watercare to a sense of social and environmental responsibility as demanded by section 59c of the Local Government Act*.
Ensure that Auckland Council show impartiality and avoid political interference when assessing the resource consent and considering the impacts on the environment and the surrounding communities.
