* if there is not adequate existing development infrastructure, identify what the infrastructure deficiencies are and confirm that the WCC is satisfied the additional infrastructure to service development capacity is likely to be available.
If this information is held in electronic form, then it is preferred that it is provided in its complete and original electronic format.

13) The criteria used to specify why Tawa railway station is to have 10 minute walkable catchments while Lindon Railway Station and the Johnsonville Line railway stations are to have 5 minute walkable catchments along with the evidence to support the application of this criteria.
