Hearing date set for AB Lime consent bid

A consent hearing date has been set for the AB Lime application for seven new consents and a variation to its existing consent.

These included asking for the removal of the cap on how much waste it could receive a year.

At present the dump is limited to taking 100,000 tonnes of waste a year.

The hearing will be held from May 17-21 at the Invercargill Workingmen's Club and will take into account the application, the seven submissions received, associated evidence and Environment Southland’s report on the application.

The application was notified to 21 parties within about 2km of the site of the application, and to tangata whenua via Te Ao Marama and Hokonui Runanga.
