Project Hurunui Wind

Meridian Energy Limited Wind Farm Project - Direct Referral to the Environment Court

Meridian Energy Ltd applied to Hurunui District Council for land use consent to construct, operate and maintain a wind farm on a 34km2 project site located on the eastern side of State Highway 1 between Omihi and Greta Valley.  Four applications were also lodged with Environment Canterbury (discharge to air, discharge of stormwater to land, discharge of contaminants to land and for the storage of diesel and use of mobile tankers).  The decision was made to refer all of these applications to the Environment Court by way of direct referral.  The Environment Court reference is ENV-2011-CHC-90.

This website is being maintained by Hurunui District Council in its role as reporting council to the Court.
