Wairoa District Council made specific provision in its 2012-2022 Long Term Plan ‘to undertake a planning study relating to the industrial interface with residential properties in the North Clyde area’. In November 2012, Council commissioned Opus International Consultants to carry out this study of ‘North Clyde’, and to develop a Strategy to address issues around land use conflicts.
