Management of Waste as an important Long Term Plan issue

William Foster made this Official Information request to Auckland Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for William Foster to read recent responses and update the status.

From: William Foster

Dear Auckland Council,

The 2021-2031 10 Year Budget (Long Term Plan) consultation document and supporting documents are consultation documents following the special procedure requirements of the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA).

These long term plan documents make no reference to a new regional landfill. Nor does any new regional landfill provision appear in the Auckland Plan 2050.

The private proposal to establish a regional landfill at Wayby valley has received significant attention and the plan change and resource consent application to vary the Unitary Plan are currently under consideration by Commissioners.

Management of regional waste is a significant and important issue and Auckland Council (AC)’s plans for that are set out in Auckland’s Waste Management and Minimisation Plan of 2018 which aims for zero waste by 2040 and has no reference to a new regional landfill.

Please provide any documents associated with the preparation of the Long Term Plan consultation documents that:
* refer to the proposal for a new regional landfill in the Wayby Valley (or elsewhere);
* identify whether the provision of a new regional landfill is a significant or important issue or choice;
* refer to whether or not provision of, or for, a new regional landfill should be provided for in the proposed long term plan;
* consider how the local authority is informing discussions with its communities about this choice; or
* refer to whether AC is complying with the requirements of the LGA by not including reference to the new landfill in the consultation document, or by failing to refer to whether or not AC has any plans for a new regional landfill or alternatives for waste disposal.

Yours faithfully,

William Foster
