Council to host Raglan community meeting to discuss wastewater discharge consent

02 July 2019

Two community information sessions will be held in Raglan next week to discuss the upcoming re-consenting process for the Raglan Wastewater Treatment Plant discharge permit.

Waikato District Council will be applying to Waikato Regional Council for consent to discharge wastewater in November 2019.

“We want to involve the community in this process and so will be holding two community information sessions next week to kick-start this project. These information sessions will give the Raglan community the opportunity to hear about the discharge options that are available to us,” Waikato District Council Waters Manager Karl Pavlovich says.

Key stakeholders and iwi have had meetings on this topic in recent weeks and will continue to be involved as Council works towards submitting its application for consent later in the year.

The first community information session will be held at the Raglan Town Hall on Wednesday 10 July from 4pm-7pm.

If you can’t make that time, staff will then be at the Raglan Office and Library on Saturday 13 July from 10am-12pm.

Both of these sessions will be drop-in style. Pop in at a time that suits you to speak with staff and the project experts to learn more about what is planned and how you can get involved.
