A brisk walk this morning with John Elliott and Vaughan Clutterbuck whose house backs onto the forest.

Here is the link for publicly notified applications on the Auckland Council website: www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/have-your-say/have-your-say-notified-resource-consent/notified-resource-consent-applications-open-submissions/Pages/default.aspx
Copies of the consent will be available at the Grey Lynn Community Library as well. With regards to the response period, the submission period is 20 working days - which we feel needs to extended by one month.
