Invasive testing of Bella Vista subdivision unrelated to settlement agreements

A request to conduct invasive testing on properties in the Bella Vista subdivision is not related to property settlement agreements, says Tauranga City Council Chief Executive Garry Poole.

“We sent requests today to conduct some further testing on some properties,” says Poole. “There was some concern that this would impact on settlement amounts or delay offers being made. This is not the case.”

“It is purely related to our function as a regulatory body.”

Settlement negotiations will proceed shortly.
