Consent filed for cleanfill
Winstone has applied for resource consent for a massive cleanfill bordering the Belmont Regional Park.
The 14- hectare cleanfill, which will have a capacity of 1.75 million cubic metres of rock and dirt, will replace the Dry Creek Cleanfill.
Winstone has applied for three consents to the Hutt and Porirua city councils, as well the regional council.
The cleanfill has an estimated lifespan of 35 to 50 years and the land is zoned rural. The site of the proposed cleanfill borders SH58 and the regional park and is opposite Mt Cecil Rd.
Last September residents told Kapi- Mana News they were concerned about the visual impact and the extra traffic on SH58.
Residents argue the road already has a high accident rate and that on figures supplied by Winstone there will be between 88 and 518 truck movements a day.
