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 considering HBRC’s Tukituki Plan Change 6 and the Ruataniwha Water Storage Scheme.

HBRIC 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."
