15 years, 32 resource consents

Lake Hood a few kilometes from Ashburton is an amazing tribute to a big dream and community effort.

The 80 hectare man-made lake has an eight lane international rowing course, an international water ski course and several kilometers of canals with residential sub divisions. It is surrounded by the 173 hectare Huntingdon Park.

It took fifteen years and a lot of volunteer labour to create – but the statistic on the menu at the Lake House Restaurant which hit me was that it also required 32 resource consents.
