Consent for Water Take in Pukekohe
Wed March 25th 2020
Berry Simons has successfully obtained consent for a large groundwater take from the Franklin Waiau Pa Waitemata aquifer.
Berry Simons’ Partner, Andrew Braggins, has successfully obtained consent for a large groundwater take from the Franklin Waiau Pa Waitemata aquifer for a kiwifruit orchard.
The proposal was opposed by a number of submitters due to concerns regarding the allocable capacity of the aquifer and potential for saline intrusion.Through expert testimony, including the evidence of a hydrologist and robust data from a five-day on-site pumping test, the consenting team, led by Andrew, demonstrated to the Commissioners that the proposal had been designed to avoid and mitigate adverse effects on the local community and had a robust suite of consent conditions. The Commissioners agreed and granted consent subject to almost all of the conditions offered by the Applicant.
The application was heard in February 2020 with a decision issuing on 17 March 2020.
