Landfill remediation plans

Landfill remediation work at 645 Whangaparaoa Road (HM August 15) is part of Auckland Council’s wider investigations into the risks of closed landfills.

Site investigations are planned next year at the Whangaparaoa Road site.

A Council spokesperson says once those investigations are complete, the extent of remedial work to control those risks will become clear.

“The investigations will provide council with more information about the condition of the closed landfill,” the spokesperson says.

“This information is used to prioritise sites for remedial work, under the long term closed landfill asset management plan.”

The spokesperson says no developments are currently planned for the former landfill, although council is exploring the potential for the site “to support delivery of core services”.
