A practical guide for everyone aged 25 to 85 NEW BOOK Anzac spirit remains The Returned and Services Association annual Poppy Appeal started on Monday and runs through to Anzac Day on Sunday, April 25, with the traditional Poppy Day street collec- tion on Friday. This is the RSA's major annual fundraising campaign and allows local branch- es to continue to help veterans and their famil- ies.Donations made to the appeal support welfare services for returned and ex service personnel in the area in which the funds are raised. It is through these donations that the 250 RSAs throughout the country can help those veterans and their famil- ies in need. Donations can also be made via TXT POPPY to 2447 and online at www.anzacpoppy.com. Irrigation plan gains consent A dairy farm near Kai- taia has got the go ahead to take several million cubic metres of aquifer and river water a year in one of the biggest resource consent allocations of its kind since the 1980s. Three independent commissioners ap- pointed by the North- land Regional Council have granted Land- corp and Te Rarawa Runanga resource con- sents that will ultimately allow them to take for irrigation: 2.3 million cubic metres of groundwater at the 2200-hectare Sweetwater Station a year for 10 years 1.5 million cubic metres of water from the Awanui River a year for 20 years. The volume and 10-year period ap- proved for the ground- water take is half what the applicants sought when they lodged their appli- cation in November 2009. Fifty submissions were received by the council, with 48 oppos- ing the application. Concerns raised by submitters included the volume of the proposed groundwater take and potential effects on the Aupouri aquifer, water sup- plies and ecology of the Sweetwater area. Commissioners Alan Watson, former council chairman Mark Farnsworth and Canterbury ground- water expert Hugh Thorpe made their decision after a hear- ing in Kaitaia in February. They say in the decision, which runs to more than 60 pages, that the proposal is in line with the Regional Policy Statement and Northland Water and Soil Plan. However, a raft of conditions will ensure any adverse effects are avoided, remedied or suitably mitigated. One of the con- ditions is that the applicants must form an Aupouri water user liaison group to review the results of monitor- ing that will be carried out as part of the con- sents. Group members must include rep- resentatives of Aupouri groundwater users, marae and tangata whenua, the Conservation Depart- ment and the district and regional councils. Appeals against the decision must be lodged with the Environment Court by May 6.
