Takapau Waste Water Treatment Plant Upgrade
A community meeting was held on Tuesday 17th December 2019 and the community was extremely engaged in providing constructive feedback and direction to council. This now allows council to rule out some options, and further investigate others.
Officers are going away and will bring back some high level options and a plan to a meeting in February 2020.
A community meeting is planned for Tuesday 17th December at the Town Hall from 1-3pm to start the discussions on the Takapau Wastewater network and our journey towards replacing the resource consent.
Please find a link to the flyer going out to the community this week.
A copy of the new resource consent to 31 October 2021, can be found here.
Due to the works underway with the Waipukurau, Waipawa and Otane wastewater plants, Council plans to commence this reference group and subsequent work later in 2019.
On Monday 10 December 2018, Council was granted an extension to resource consents DP180115W and DP180124A through to 31 October 2021.
As previously planned, Council will now commence works to establish a community reference group and prepare for the future of the wastewater plant in Takapau, prior to the new end of consent date.
Council has submitted the final component of the extension to Hawkes Bay Regional Council (HBRC) in early October 2018, and now awaits the decision.
Council will shortly commence planning with a community group and local iwi, on the future of the wastewater treatment plant and what it looks like, all the while working towards a best practicable option (BPO).
Once a best practicable option (BPO) is reached, council will work on gaining a resource consent to upgrade or build the plant to those specs.
Further updates will be provided as this project progresses.
Council is working with local tai whenua to gain approval to extend our resource consent while we explore land based and other options for the future of this wastewater treatment plant.
We are making good progress and hope to have this all wrapped up by the end of October 2018, when we can move into the investigation and design phase of this project.
An extension has been requested of this resource consent which expired on 31 May 2018 to allow Central Hawkes Bay District Council time to consider all options for this site, including land based options. Hawkes Bay Regional Council are currently considering this extension request, and have advised us they request a time extension to do so, whilst they consult with the community on this. We are currently considering options for the future of this site.
