From an email forwarded by PNP:
Long Gully Station has applied for a resource consent from WCC for a wind farm (http://www.wellington.govt.nz/news/publicnotices/details/long-gully.html). As well as turbines on the ridge past the radar dome it also includes the construction of a transmission line down the tip track. The documents do not note whether the tip track will be altered in any way. Though the road beyond the radar dome will be upgraded to cater for construction traffic.
If this is given the go ahead then the Tip track is a preferred access for construction.
If used this would require considerable modification.Perhaps a submission would make all parties more aware of the recreational use of the Tip Track.
Submissions due 26 June
