PCC to Lodge Application for Transmission Gully Link Roads

PCC to Lodge Application for Link Roads to Transmission Gully

Mayor Nick Leggett says the Council is pleased that Transmission Gully is a step closer following a meeting of the Council today.

The Council approved two applications to be submitted to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for designation and Resource Management Act consents for Porirua's link roads to Transmission Gully. These roads will link to the gully route from Porirua's local roading network at the top of James Cook Drive in Whitby and on Warspite Avenue in Waitangirua.

PCC 's applications will be lodged with the EPA later this month alongside the New Zealand Transport Agency's Notice of Requirement and resource consent applications for the Transmission Gully project.

"Porirua has supported and promoted Transmission Gully for many years now so it's exciting to see us taking another step in the process," says Mayor Leggett.

"This road is crucial – not just locally – but as a regional roading network that will provide greater route security and ease congestion for everyone in the Wellington region."

Once the EPA accepts the applications, the Minister for the Environment will decide whether the applications will be referred to a Board of Inquiry or the Environment Court .

Then the public will be given the chance to have their say and Mayor Leggett encourages residents to have their voices heard by making a submission.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
