Stop the proposed cattle feedlots in Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere) - Ōtautahi
6 June 2023: Breaking news! Application withdrawn! We opposed this and won!
Environment Canterbury has announced today that the Wongan Hills application to build feedlot barns in Kaituna Valley, Banks Peninsula has been withdrawn!!
We're celebrating - and we thank you wholeheartedly for your amazing, generous and unstinting support, which has contributed to our win. We hope this means that future applications for feedlots on Banks Peninsula will be unlikely.
It's clear that no hearing is required now, but we still have costs to cover for work done thus far. We will let you know more when there is more certainty about the numbers. Thank you again for your wonderful support!
