Notice is hereby given that Wellington Regional Council (“Council”) proposes to take, under the Public Works Act 1981 the leasehold interest held by JCDecaux New Zealand Trading Limited (“Lessee”) pursuant to unregistered lease dated 18 May 2016 with a final expiry date of 31 March 2024 in respect of the land described in the Schedule to this notice (“Land”).
The Lessee’s interest in the Land is required for construction, operation and maintenance of the RiverLink Project (“Project”). More particularly, the Lessee’s interest in the Land is required for soil conservation and river control purposes.
The reason why Council considers it reasonably necessary to take the lessee’s interest in the land is to realign and upgrade the existing stop bank on the eastern (true left) bank of the Te Awa Kairangi / Hutt River to provide improved flood protection and resilience to large flood events.
The Lessee has been served with notice of Council’s intention to take its interest in the Land and advised of its right to object.
Any other person having the right to object may send a written objection to the Registrar, Environment Court, District Court Building, Level 5, 49 Ballance Street, Wellington 6011, 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 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 Ian Hutchison, The Property Group Limited, Level 11, Cornerstone House, 36 Customhouse Quay, Wellington 6011. Postal Address: PO Box 2874, Wellington 6140. Telephone: (04) 470 6105.
The Land is located at 16–26 Rutherford Street, Lower Hutt.
Dated at Wellington this 25th day of July 2022.
