What People are saying

Central Plains Water Scheme

Adderley Head has been the provider of legal services to the Selwyn District Council for the Central Plains Water Scheme, which is a key project for the Council.  The advice on this project has ranged from Resource Management Act issues to various council funding and governance issues that are central to this project's success. Paul and his team have understood our requirements and provided appropriate solutions to the Council which, as a public entity, has a risk-adverse profile.  At the same time, the solutions needed to meet the commercial imperatives of Central Plains and did so.  Consistently, the advice was of high quality, timely, and pragmatic.

Douglas Marshall, Manager-Corporate Services, Selwyn District Council
