Hawke's Bay's Sikh community is elated after a Hastings District Council backflip granted them a resource consent to build a temple on plains production land on the outskirts of the city.

HDC on Tuesday granted the consent, subject to conditions, to build what is known as a gurudwara at 28 Richmond Rd, Tomoana.

It comes just over three months after the New Zealand Sikh Society (Hastings) objected to the council's decision to refuse the resource consent.
