Today Christchurch City Council approved moving to the final stage of the procurement process to find an alternative to the Organics Processing Plant.

This final stage of the procurement process will involve six shortlisted suppliers submitting a competitive bid through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Details about the six suppliers, sites and solutions will remain confidential at this stage as they are commercially sensitive.

Mayor Phil Mauger says he was pleased to progress to the final stage of the procurement process.

“We know how important finding another location for organics processing is for our Bromley community. This is a complex process and I’m pleased that we’ve taken another big step forward as a Council today in committing to finding the best appropriate future solution.”

"We’re hoping to make a decision on the preferred supplier before the end of the year.”
