Looks like Dick "The Jandal" Hubbard has copped another flogging.

Good news. The Council’s lawyer contacted me this morning to tell me that the Council will be surrendering its resource consents. The reasons given are:

(1) The work to be done on the trees was going to be different to what the consents allowed so would have required a variation to the consents, which must in any event be processed in the same way as a new consent application;

(2) The Council accepts that the consents were not validly granted because of the delegation issue.
