Waikato District policy

In December 2005, Kay Clarke of the Waikato District Council presented the Council’s policies to have no stock crossings at-grade by 2015.  The Council will issue no new permits for at-grade crossing, and will subsidise 25% of the costs of underpasses replacing existing crossings.  The decision followed an extensive consultation process, with one staff member dedicated to the process.  This work by the Council fed directly back into the development of the national Guidelines for Stock Crossings.
