B&A prepared the resource consent application and AEE for Port Taranaki’s new firefighting system. The application covered a suite of consents required from the Taranaki Regional Council and New Plymouth District Council. The consents covered issues such as coastal water quality, penguin (Kororā) management (200 pairs are currently located at Port Taranaki), sites of significance to Māori, archaeological sites, earthworks, sea wall repairs and visual impact of the firefighting monitors.

One of the key objectives of the project was to secure the removal of PFAS firefighting foam from the existing firefighting system and replace it with a more environmentally acceptable fluorine-free foam.

After successful consultation with iwi and other parties, the application was able to be granted on a non-notified basis.
