The Board of Hawke’s Bay Regional
Investment Company Limited (HBRIC Ltd) supports the request
for a time extension from the Independent Board of Inquiry

by the Environmental Protection Authority to consider
resource consents for the water storage scheme, alongside
HBRC’s Tukituki Plan Change. It held a seven week hearing
that concluded in January, where it heard 73 submitters /
representations and approximately 70 witnesses.
Ltd Chairman Dr Andy Pearce says “a high quality and
robust decision is in the best interests of all parties, so
HBRIC supports the Board’s request for a one month
extension of time”.
He says “the process has been
open, rigorous and thorough.”
“Our legal counsel
will inform the respective government Ministers of HBRIC’s
support for the extension."
