What happened to this public notice?

Wellington City Council sought your views on the proposal to grant a new occupancy agreement (lease/licence) for a commercial zipline operation located at the Southern Landfill, Owhiro Bay.

Oral hearings were heard on 22 February 2018 by the City Strategy Committee.

The decision paper goes to the City Strategy Committee on 22 March. The paper is available in the meeting agenda (27MB PDF).

The description of the land is 50 Landfill Road, CFR WN21D/612, Lots 1 DP29398 and Lots 1 & 2 DP29742. The zipline will operate from the Hawkins Hill Road access to the land.

The occupancy agreement has been requested by Mark O’Connor and Karl Ratahi, who will operate the zipline if the lease/licence is granted.

The landfill site does not have reserve status under the Reserves Act 1977. The land, however, is held and used as open space as part of the Outer Green Belt.


Next steps

The City Strategy Committee will consider a decision paper on 22 March 2018.
