Council Decides on Hutt CBD Flood Protection Scheme

Greater Wellington Regional Council has decided that Option A is the preferred approach to providing flood protection in the stretch of the Hutt River between Ewen Bridge and Kennedy-Good Bridge, accepting the Hutt Valley Flood Management Sub-committee’s recommendation on the options. 

This means that the scheme will now go forward for preliminary design, costings and implementation timeframes over the next year, ahead of Resource Management Act hearings in 2017.

The public and submitters will have an opportunity to have input into the preliminary design and a more formal opportunity to submit through the Resource Management Act hearings process.

The river channel will be widened, stopbanks will increase in height alongside the river and property will be purchased on Marsden Street and Pharazyn Street to make way for the scheme.

Option A will cost approximately $143 million. How the individual components of the project will be funded will be developed through the preliminary design phase.
