Genesis Energy's Project Kaipara The Council's Position
The Rodney District Council has been asked to consider a change to the District Plan to facilitate a proposal by Genesis Energy for a gas-fuelled power station in west Rodney.
A decision by the council whether to approve a change to the District Plan will be determined only after a detailed proposal from Genesis Energy is received and consultation with the local community and other affected parties takes place.
In the interim, the Rodney District Council is preparing its own detailed report on sustainable energy for Rodney.
That report, which is due in December, is expected to provide a strategic direction and a set of sustainable energy options and assessments for the Council to consider.
