Landfill remediation planned

This site on Whangaparaoa Road is to undergo landfill remediation.

An Auckland Council owned site on Whangaparaoa Road that has been leased by the same company for decades is to undergo landfill remediation.

Whangaparaoa Earthmovers has been based at 645 Whangaparaoa Road (next to the recycling centre) for more than 30 years. So it came as a shock when the lease expired on June 30 to find that Council would not renew it long term.

Panuku Development Auckland, which handles property sales and leases for Council, says the company was offered a 12-month extension, on a month by month basis, while they looked for new premises, after which the site would be taken for landfill remediation works.

Whangaparaoa Earthmovers will move to a new yard in Helensville by the end of this month, after which the remediation works will begin.

A Panuku spokesperson says that Council is not currently proposing to sell the site.
