Auckland Council notified the Warkworth to Wellsford application on Monday 18 May 2020 and submissions closed on 29 June 2020.

The Council hearing was held in Warkworth between Tuesday 6 October 2020 and Thursday 15 October 2020.

On 25 March 2021, Auckland Council granted resource consents, subject to conditions, for the Warkworth to Wellsford project. Council also recommended Waka Kotahi confirm the Notice of Requirement (NoR). The appeal periods for resource consents and NoR have now closed and several appeals have been filed with the Environment Court.

Once the Environment Court process has concluded Waka Kotahi will provide further information on the outcome of this process.
