Resource Consent Gained

Friday, 15 December 2000

After six years the Tuatapere Hump Track Trust have gained resource consent from Environmental Southland and the Southland District Council to build the 22km of track. The resource consent application was heard by independent commissioner, David Johnston of Johnston & Whitney from Mosgiel. No appeals were lodged with the Department of Justice Environmental Court.

Speaking from Tuatapere this morning David McNay said, “The trust is elated to gain resource consent and that now the project can really get under way. We are very grateful to the community of Southland and funders for the support during this long and drawn out process. The members of the trust have worked hard and showed incredible patience to get to this point”.

Work on the track will begin after local Iwi Stuart Bull and Mike Skerrett have blessed the track next week.

The Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track is the first track to be built on conservation lands by a trust. There are significant benefits to the Southland community as visitors from throughout New Zealand and around the world are interested in coming to walk and enjoy this magnificent part of the country.

Early this week the Tuatapere Hump Track Trust released their new logo. Local graphic designer Allan Derrick designed the logo. The logo has a modern design with an international flavour portraying the feeling of excitement and true tramping track. The logo has the sophistication of a well-organized business identity.
