Council to lodge report

LAMI Town Council special administrator Jasper Singh confirms they have yet to lodge their report to the Town and Country Planning department on Waibola in Wailekutu in Lami.

Mr Singh said they had received an overwhelming response from the public objecting to the rezoning of Waibola from residential to heavy industrial.

"There have been a lot of submissions, more than what I had expected that was lodged," Mr Singh said.

"What we are doing at the moment is that we are in the process of finalising it (report) and we are now going through each submission, paragraph by paragraph."

He said he had conveyed to the director of Town and Country Planning Department that they would soon forward all objections and their report soon.

Mr Singh said his team was working round-the-clock to file their report so that the matter could be resolved quickly.

"We represent the ratepayers as well, that's our concern. That will be a major factor and we won't just decide anything, we will look at the merits of every objection and compile everything and what the council feels. But the final decision rests with the director."
