milk powder plant darfieldMilk Powder Plant, Darfield – Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited

The Planz Consultants team was involved in the preparation of resource consent applications for a new Fonterra Milk Powder Plant at Darfield, west of Christchurch.  The development represented one of the largest manufacturing investments in New Zealand within the past five years and caters for strong future milk growth in Canterbury.  The application developed for this project involved a ‘whole of consent approach’ where all consents required (District and Regional) were combined into one document to provide all parties with a thorough understanding of the project.  Following a successful consenting process construction of the plant took place during 2011 and was commissioned in 2012.

“Fonterra recently used Planz Consultants to help manage the resource consenting process a significant $500m Greenfields Dairy factory development in Canterbury.  Planz Consultants was selected because of their considerable experience in managing multidiscipline planning projects.  I was impressed by their professional approach and ability to communicate the brief and co-ordinate the inputs within the consultant team.  Planz Consultants delivered their services on time and within the agreed budget.  As a result of this experience Fonterra has continued to use the services of Planz Consultants on other significant planning projects.”
