The Hurunui District Coun­cil has re­solved to pur­chase up to 1,190 shares in the Hurunui Wa­ter Project with a face value of $476,000 as sig­nalled in the 2017-18 An­nual Plan, sub­ject to agree­ment be­ing reached with HWP on the pur­chase de­tails and for­mal pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion. The $200 mil­lion scheme will cover about 21,000ha within the Hurunui and Waipara catch­ments. Hur­dles to be over­come in­clude ob­tain­ing fur­ther re­source con­sents from En­vi­ron­ment Can­ter­bury for nutri­ent dis­charges to take the catch­ment to its al­low­able lim­its un­der the district plan. While keen for pub­lic in­put, the coun­cil has yet to set a date for the con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod.
