WEL Networks 84MW Te Uku wind farm has been granted resource consent by the Environment Court. Te Uku was granted resource consent earlier this year, but the consent appealed to the Environment Court; those appeals have now been resolved through mediation, and Construction will now start in October next year. So, the entire RMA process, with appeal, has taken just over a year from start to finish - so much for the claim that the RMA is a barrier to wind farm development.
