As part of implementing the consent Auckland Council Healthy Waters is establishing an independent Technical Reference Group (TRG). The purpose of the TRG is to provide independent engineering, planning, ecological and cultural advice to support the implementation of the Auckland NDC. This independent advisory role is important for transparency and accountability in the implementation of this major resource consentand to help ensure best practice stormwater management is being adopted.

To ensure the independence of the appointments, Auckland Council has asked Engineering New Zealand to nominate professional engineers for appointment to the TRG.

To apply to be a member of the TRG, please send your CV and completed expressions of interest form to hello@engineeringnz.org with the subject line “Stormwater Engineer NDC Technical Reference Group” by no later than 5pm on Friday 21 February 2020.
