Wastewater connections outside are of benefit for Russell

Andrew Riddell made this Official Information request to Far North District Council

The request was refused by Far North District Council.

From: Andrew Riddell

Dear Far North District Council,

When the Russell wastewater scheme was approved, an area of benefit plan was produced and approved showing the specific properties that would be covered by the wastewater scheme, and which would be liable for a capital works levy towards the Russell wastewater scheme.

Please provide of all properties and/or wastewater connections to the Russell wastewater scheme from outside that area of benefit. I wish to know the location of each of these additional connections, and the date the connection was approved.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Riddell

benefit plan was produced and approved showing the specific properties
that would be covered by the wastewater scheme, and which would be liable
for a capital works levy towards the Russell wastewater scheme.”

 

“Please provide of all properties and/or wastewater connections to the
Russell wastewater scheme from outside that area of benefit. I wish to
know the location of each of these additional connections, and the date
the connection was approved.”
