Marsden B update - DOC Hearing set for 30-31 January

Feature story - January 10, 2007
The Department of Conservation (DOC) has set its hearing date to hear submissions on Mighty River's plans to put a dirty-great coal conveyor belt across conservation land.

Greenpeace activists taking part in the global day of action on climate change outside the proposed coal burning power station Marsden B at Ruakaka, Northland.

DOC gave the proposal the go ahead last year. If you put in a submission against the plan, then thank you! and if you asked to speak at the hearing you will receive a letter from DOC letting you know when you are due to be heard.


  1. Attend and speak yourself (remembering that you can only talk about the points you made in your submission);
  2. Or, let us know and we can speak on your behalf.

Make your voice heard.
