As Tonkin + Taylor’s Principal Environmental and Infrastructure Planner, Tim Ensor is well versed in producing and supporting the assessments and documentation for obtaining resource consent, certificates of compliance, designations and meeting outline plan requirements.
Tim has played a pivotal role in the consenting of emergency works to dredge the harbour at South Bay, Kaikōura. The facility became unusable through seabed uplift resulting from the November 2016 Hurunui/Kaikōura earthquake sequence and saw the introduction of bespoke legislative processes to avoid delays.
His other projects of note include the SH1 Russley Road 4-Laning and SH82 Waitaki Bridges Replacement for the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA). Tim was responsible for producing the assessments and documentation to support resource consent applications, notices of requirement, outline plans and archaeological authorities, while also planning and undertaking public and stakeholder engagement.
Tim’s previous employment by a consent authority and ongoing engagement as a contractor greatly benefits T+T’s clients, as Tim is able to provide valuable insight into how consent authorities approach applications and react to changes in legislation, case law and high level policy.
He is also regularly involved in the plan development process. This includes producing submissions, presenting expert evidence and attending hearings. Recent involvement has included work for the Canterbury Aggregate Producers Group on both regional and district plans. The group consists of companies with significant land interests around the country including Fulton Hogan, Isaacs Construction and Winstone Aggregates.
