Wanganui Chronicle | 17 January 2017

Environmental Protection Authority staff have finished counting all the submissions made on Trans-Tasman Resources’ applications to mine the South Taranaki seabed for ironsand.

There are 13,733 submissions, now listed alphabetically on the authority’s website, but not yet analysed.

A note from the authority says the Te Runanga o Ngati Ruanui submission included a petition. Its signatories were not counted as individual submitters.

It also says some submitters did not include all the information required on the authority’s online submission form. In some cases the need for that information has been waived, and those submissions will be considered.
