Hi Andrew,


Sorry for the late reply on the information request. Attached is the
latest Resource Consent which includes all the plans (other than detail
building plans) for both the Wharf current, wharf with re-development, new
pontoons and decks and building. You will have seen a range of information
in the public domain from various quarters which is related – not sure of
the accuracy of some of this?


In terms of the Management Agreement we have with FNDC this would be
subject to their view on its ability to be provided under OIA provisions –
I don’t see a problem with it.


I cannot release to you the Contracts between FNHL and Service providers
but I believe Council could release the relevant financial information for
these developments. There is no prescription or document that we have in
relation to the Governance/Management model at this point other than what
Riki and the Wharf Trust have discussed publicly and are having drafted
via Russell McVeagh


If you could give me some specific items you want I can see if I can
release them at this end.


I am also about to apply for an Archaeological Approval for the sewer line
up Cass Street as well in the next couple of weeks.

I think I have received a very small portion of the informaiton, and that other information looks like it has been refused, although the reply from Far North Holdings does not cite any sections of the Act it is relying on, and, frankly, seems to be a bit of an unfocused ramble.
