RNl1.153.01 by Port Otago Ltd lodged on the 19th of August 2011 to dispose of dredge material at Aramoana Beach, The Spit and Hayward Point. We, the undersigned request:

1. That there should be no offshore dumping at the Spit/Aramoana and Heyward Point sites until a basline survey is complete and;

2. That wave modelling is carried out by appropriate scientists in this field based on the survey results, to ascertain any possible adverse effects from dredge deposits on the surfbreaks at Aramoana and Murdering Bay, which are protected surf breaks under NZCPS 2010″
