Proposed Kaimai Wind Farm Resource Consent Applications

Kaimai Wind Farm Ltd has lodged resource consent applications with Hauraki District Council and Waikato Regional Council for consent to establish and operate a 24 turbine wind farm on the north western area of the Kaimai Ranges, south of Paeroa.

The resource consent application to the Hauraki District Council seeks consent to all landuse activities associated with the construction and operation of the proposed wind farm.

The application site covers 771 and 604 Rotokohu Road and 6356 SH26 ( 1304 hectares).

Twenty four large scale wind turbines are proposed, 7 of them 180 metres high (to blade tip standing upright), and 17 of them 207 metres high.

Proposed associated structures include a substation, 2 lattice transmission towers, 2 overhead lines, and 18.9km of roading – all within the application site.

Earthworks will include 900,000m3 of cut material and 113,500m3 of engineered fill.

It is estimated that 53,000m3 of finishing aggregate will be needed for the on-site roads. Some will be obtained from off site, however 2 on site quarries are also proposed.

The main site access is proposed to be from the south- from Wright Road, which comes off Rawhiti Road – the turbine parts are proposed to be transported from Tauranga, through Matamata-Piako District to the site.

Rotokohu Road may also be used – for taking in other materials.

The resource consent application to the Waikato Regional Council seeks consent to specific aspects of land use – removal of vegetation, earthworks, to permit the discharge of surplus soil and surface water associated with the construction phase of the project and culvert upgrades.

The resource consent applications will be publicly notified - at the request of the applicant, which means there will be an opportunity for community feedback via written submissions. Notification will occur once all further information requested from the applicant has been received.

Once notified, hard copies will be available for inspection - in the Hauraki District Council offices and libraries in Ngatea, Paeroa and Waihi. Those considered directly affected by the proposal will be notified of the applications by post.
