At an extraordinary meeting yesterday, councillors voted in favour of scrapping its judicial committee - comprising three councillors - and using commissioners to decide on resource consents.

Conway Stewart, Giles Bramwell, Alan Watson, Les Simmons and Bill Brown have been appointed as the council's hearing commissioners and given the power to approve non-notified non-complying resource consent applications.
