Dome Valley landfill opponents want more time for submissions

From Morning Report, 8:47 am on 26 May 2020

Opponents of a controversial Dome Valley Landfill proposal in Auckland are urging the council to give them another month to send in submissions.

The Auckland Council only notified a resource consent application by Chinese owned company Waste Management the day before the country moved into Alert Level 4 lockdown, and public submissions close today.

Locals and iwi say it is unreasonable for the council to expect submissions during a pandemic, and they want more time.
