Stormwater forum Print E-mail

ImageFor more than ten years, since the last resource consents expired, the Council has been illegally dumping toxic stormwater into the Tamaki Estuary.





Faced with the prospect of needing to do something about this totally unacceptable situation the Council has come up with a much better idea. Have a discussion. Lest the proposed Forum should also go toxic the Council Stormwater Resource Consent Specialist has declared a range of items which are off the agenda.

No one will be permitted to discuss regional issues, visions, objectives or outcomes. If anyone can think of anything else not on this list they ought to go to the Forum to get it added. No denying that democracy is a ton of fun.
