Notice of Intention to Take Land for Road—Nukumaru Station Road, Waitotara, South Taranaki District and Whanganui District

Notice is hereby given that South Taranaki District Council (“Council”) under the provisions of section 23 of the Public Works Act 1981 proposes to take the land described in the Schedule to this notice (“Land”).

The Land is required for the purposes of construction, operation, maintenance and protection of an extension and upgrade to Nukumaru Station Road, between State Highway 3 and Waiinu Beach Road.

The reasons why the taking is considered reasonably necessary are:

  • To provide an alternative and permanent road access for the Waiinu Beach community which currently relies solely on access via a road and bridge prone to flooding; and
  • To establish a safer and upgraded intersection to State Highway 3.

There are no suitable alternative sites, routes or other methods of achieving these objectives and the land use is in accordance with Designations RMD17002 (South Taranaki District Council) and DES17/001 and DES17/002 (Whanganui District Council).

The new section of road will extend south from a new intersection with State Highway 3, along the easternmost boundary of the Land. Following the commissioning of the new section of road, signage and barriers will be erected at the existing Nukumaru Station Road Intersection with State Highway 3. The existing Nukumaru Station Road (between approximate chainage 700m to the railway line) will be widened along both sides of the existing road corridor.

The owner of the Land and those persons with a registered interest in it have been served with notice of the Council’s intention to take the 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, Level 5, District Court Building, 49 Ballance Street, Wellington 6011, or by post to PO Box 5027, Wellington 6145, 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. The objector will have a right to appear and be heard personally unless the objector otherwise requires. 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 Fiona Aitken at South Taranaki District Council, Postal Address: Private Bag 902, Hawera 4640. Telephone: (06) 278 0555. Email:
