North Waikato residents appeal prison resource consents

North Waikato residents will challenge consents allowing the Corrections Department to build a 650-bed men's prison south of Meremere.

The North Waikato Action Group has lodged an appeal against resource consents granted by Environment Waikato last month. Its grounds for appeal include environmental effects and the loss of high-quality land.
