I will be in a strategy session so difficult to come out of that. 
What about earlier in the morning, 7 or 8am?

10am tomorrow morning could work so wanted to check/rule that out as an option from your

Hi Margaret, 
Thanks for coming back so quickly – I’ve just put 4pm tomorrow in Phil’s diary which should 
work from your availability below and I’ll work this out with the Councillors.  I’m told no need 
for Raveen and this stage.

I am unavailable today but could do tomorrow afternoon, after 3pm, if that worked. 
Unfortunately I do not have any availability for Thursday. 
Do you wish Raveen to attend this meeting?.

Hi s 7(2)(a)  and s 7(2)(a)  
Could you please arrange a meeting involving Penny Hulse, Linda Cooper, Greg 
Presland , Margaret Devlin (Chair of Watercare) and the Mayor in relation to the 
water treatment plant and the proposed site at Oratia. 
This is fairly urgent so it would be great to get it in this week even if it is early or late 
in the day.  
Just a note that this is a meeting at the political governance level so there is no need 
for Council or Watercare staff to attend at this stage. We can let you know if this 
Cr Hulse will be leading the meeting.

Suggested statement 
In recent weeks, comments have been made by some in public meetings and in social media that 
Watercare Services Limited was selling its Exhibition Drive land to private developers.  We have 
spoken with the Chair and Chief Executive of Watercare and have confirmed that these statements 
are not true. 
The truth is that relevant Council officers have been in discussions with Watercare with a view to 
have this parcel of land divested to Council if it were no longer required for water supply purposes.   
The Exhibition Drive land is not being sold by Watercare to private developers.  It is disappointing 
that misinformation has caused confusion and concern among our communities. 
We are pleased that we can confidently put this to rest.
