Notice of Intention to Take Land for Drainage Purposes—Richmond South Stormwater Upgrade–Bateup Drain Project, Richmond, Tasman

Notice is hereby given that Tasman District Council (“Council”) proposes, under the Public Works Act 1981, to take the land described in the Schedule of this notice (“land”).

The land is required for the Richmond South Stormwater Upgrade–Bateup Drain Project (“project”). More particularly, the land is required for drainage purposes.

If any objection is made in accordance with this notice, a public hearing will be held with the right of the objector to appear and be heard personally unless the objector otherwise requires and each objector will be informed of the time and place of the hearing.

Any person requiring further information in respect of this advice should contact Peter Wilson, The Property Group Limited, 4 Akersten Street, Port Nelson, Nelson 7010. Postal Address: PO Box 1551, Nelson 7040. Telephone: (03) 546 3256.
