What’s next - getting consent
A few people asked the question, ‘Why don’t you just get on with it?’ And fair enough too. But there’s a process we have to follow which involves applying for resource consent (permission to do what we’ve planned).
Building on feedback received, we’re continuing to refine the planning application designs and plans for RiverLink:
• the cycle path layout
• anticipated methods of construction
• plans for managing car parking and the market during construction.
These plans and designs will form the basis of our Resource Management Act consent and designation application - due to be lodged this year. We’re currently preparing the assessment of environmental effects required in support of the application.
Once the RiverLink application is lodged with the regulator, a copy of the application and supporting information will be available on the RiverLink website.
