Plans for New Zealand mussel farm halved

Mussel growers Knight Somerville Partnership have halved the size of the mussel farm they want to build on Beatrix Bay in Pelorus Sound, reports Cathie Bell in the Marlborough Express.

They made the move at the start of a hearing on whether to grant resource consent to their application. 

The hearing, before Commissioner Richard Fowler on behalf of the Marlborough District Council, heard that rather than the original 9.19 hectares, the application was now for 4.35 hectares, further away from Tuhitarata Bay, which is designated as marine farm-free.
