Notice is hereby given that Auckland Council proposes to take, under the Public Works Act 1981, the land described in the Schedule (“Railway Land”) of this notice for construction of the City Rail Link Project (“Project”). More particularly, the Railway Land is required for the construction of underground railway tunnels and railway lines and other purposes in connection with the Project.
The reasons why Auckland Council considers it reasonably necessary to take the Railway Land are:
- the Railway Land is required for the Project, a key transport priority in the Auckland Unitary Plan, to significantly improve access to the city centre and to support Auckland’s growth and development; and
- the land use is in accordance with the designation under the Auckland Unitary Plan.
The owner of the Railway Land and those persons with a registered interest in that land have been served with notice of Auckland Council’s intention to take the Railway Land and advised of their right to object.
Any other person having the right to object may send a written objection to the Registrar, Environment Court, Specialist Courts and Tribunals Centre, Level 2, 41 Federal Street, Auckland 1010, or PO Box 7147, Wellesley Street, Auckland 1141, or DX CX10086, Auckland, within 20 working days after the date of publication of this notice.
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 Rick Galli, Head of Property at City Rail Link Limited, Level 2, 25 Teed Street, Newmarket, Auckland 1023. Postal Address: PO Box 9681, Newmarket, Auckland 1149. Telephone: (09) 304 1324.
