Legal advice - Airport Expansion Notice of Motion

Wellington City Council has an inhouse legal team led by our General Counsel who provide legal advice to our elected members and the organisation overall. When necessary, we procure external legal services for specialist advice or to ensure quality assurance.

On 12 May 2022, Council’s Pūroro Āmua – the Planning and Environment Committee resolved not to proceed with Cr Pannett’s Notice of Motion. The supporting external advice was not released at the time due to a risk of judicial review. Furthermore, the report included fulsome officer advice on the legal implications of the Notice of Motion, and queries on legal risks were answered during the meeting. Given the Council decision on the Notice of Motion, it is the view of General Counsel that the risk of judicial review to Council is now low. Therefore the external supporting advice on the proposed Notice of Motion can now be publicly shared.
