The local natural environment and its special inhabitants are really important to us, as is your safety and comfort.
We are focused on our works being safe and to the highest environmental standards.
For example, we've put in place a plan for monitoring movement of Little Blue Penguins in the area and we've worked with the Department of Conservation and volunteers from the Eastern Bays Little Penguin program, the Days Bay MENZ Shed and some awesome local kids building 36 nesting boxes to help support Little Blue Penguin nesting and breeding in the area.
We realise that works of this nature also impact the environment of the residents in the area beyond our sea based friends. We are committed to minimising potential impacts as much as possible including noise and activities that may create dust or soil disturbance. Our programme of work includes a focus on working and engaging with local community groups so that they, and the people they represent, are aware of the progress and that we can understand and listen to any concerns that may arise.
