Council confirms notice of judicial review

19 February 2018
Waipa District Council

Waipa District Council has confirmed it may be subject to a judicial review of the Council's decision not to establish a Shared Waters Management Company with Hamilton City Council.

The notice of an intention to seek a judicial review has come from Peter Findlay and Associates Ltd.

A judicial review, should it go ahead, means the High Court will be asked to review the decision made by the Council in a 7-6 split decision in December 2017. 

Waipa Mayor Jim Mylchreest said because the Council was seeking independent legal advice on the judicial review process he would not make any further comment at this time.
