The expert consenting panel reissued the conditions of consent after making minor corrections, in accordance with clause 40 of Schedule 6 of the COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-track Consenting) Act 2020 (the Act). The corrections relate to some minor cross-referencing errors in condition 78.
These conditions of consent supersede and replace the consent conditions issued with the decision released under clause 37 of Schedule 6 of the Act on 23 May 2022.
On 23 May 2022, the panel granted resource consents, subject to conditions, for the Beachlands Housing Development.

(b) any relevant local authority
(c) the Attorney-General
(d) any person or group that provided comments in response to an invitation given under clause 17(2)
(e) any person who has an interest in the decision appealed against that is greater than that of the general public.
