PROJECT FACT SHEETS
HAVING YOUR SAY
We are engaging with our community early to provide opportunities for you to give feedback that will contribute to the project design.
Studies have shown that Waihi property values have increased at a rate that reflects the general New Zealand market and have performed at least as well as those in the similar-sized, nearby towns of Paeroa and Te Aroha.
ROAD AND TRAFFIC EFFECTS
Overall it is expected that the minor variations in traffic generated at the mine accesses will not result in any significant traffic effects on the existing road network.
The heritage impact assessment sought to establish whether Project Quattro is likely to impact historic heritage values, and if so, to assess the significance of those impacts and recommend how they could be remedied or mitigated.
AIR QUALITY EFFECTS
If Project Quattro is approved, we will be required to comply with consent conditions for air quality.
The proposed controls on blasting represent a set of limits that will appropriately combine the requirements of protecting the amenity of Waihi residents and prevent building damage, whilst allowing for a controlled scale of drilling and blasting.
The additional settlement effects associated with Project Quattro are expected to be very small and pose little risk of damage to buildings or infrastructure.
AQUATIC ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS
Project Quattro will impact aquatic ecology; however, the assessment forecasts a material net gain in both water course length and wetland area.
If Project Quattro is approved, we will be required to comply with consent conditions for water management granted by the Waikato Regional Council.
TERRESTRIAL ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS
An assessment of terrestrial ecology has been conducted within the footprint of the proposed
Project Quattro and its surrounding area.
If Project Quattro is approved, we will be required to manage our activities so that we comply with strict noise limits. These limits will be in line with the Hauraki District Plan. They will be designed, so we cause minimal impact to our neighbours.
