Hi neighbours. Controversial plans to build a giant waste dump in the Dome Valley should be refused because of cultural and environmental concerns, Auckland Council says.

It is the first time Auckland Council has publicly come out in opposition of Chinese-owned private waste firm Waste Management’s plans for a landfill, on land between Warkworth and Wellsford.

Key issues looked at in a newly released report included cultural values, the impact on freshwater and the surrounding ecosystem, sedimentation and air pollution, environmental and human health risks, traffic safety and the rural character of the area.

“The reporting officer is recommending, subject to contrary or additional information being received at the [resource consent] hearing, that the application be refused,” the report stated.

A resource consent hearing is due to begin at the Warkworth Town Hall at 9.30 am on November 9.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.
