dukeofurl made this Official Information request to Auckland Council

The request was successful.

From: dukeofurl

Dear Auckland Council [Watercare]

Watercare has a large area of the Hunua ranges in its ownership. Most if not all of this area is for watershed protection of the water supply dams.
Could you provide the areas and locations, out of all Watercare land in the Hunua area, that have been allowed to be logged for each of the last 5 years.
Could you supply the area and locations that are intended to be logged or have logging contracts let for the future years.

Yours faithfully,

SL Curtis
