A New Zealand golf course has become the world’s worst ever greenfield project, and the country’s tourism industry has called for a royal commission to investigate the project.
The Hermitage Golf Course at Kirriemuwha has been under review since its construction began in 2014, after it was announced the $400 million project would be built on an ancient site near Christchurch.
But the new owner of the site, Kert Davies, is already on the verge of making major changes to the golf course that could affect the countrys tourism industry.
It is now estimated the Hermitages site will cost taxpayers more than $1.6 billion to maintain, and has become one of the biggest environmental disasters in New Zeland history.
Key points:The Herminies development is being investigated after it caused a massive hole in the ground and a $400m hole in a hole in an old hole in Kirriems greenfield.
Kert Davies is also planning to demolish a nearby house to make way for the project, with a new plan expected to cost another $100 million.
The site’s developers say they are working on a “multi-billion dollar” development that will bring in millions of dollars in tourism revenue.
“The Hermine development has caused a $40 million hole in two ancient trees,” New Zealand Environment Minister Peter Dunne told the New Zealand Herald.
“I’ve been very clear, that is a project that is going to be hugely costly, and I would like to be very clear that the government is not going to do that.”
That project will not go ahead.”‘
No doubt a very, very big financial issue’The Hermins golf course is located on the southern end of the island of New Zealand.
It is the largest undeveloped greenfield site in New South Wales, and is the site of the country s most famous golf course.
Its construction started in 2014 on a large undevelopment area near Kirriemenuwhah, about 150 kilometres (90 miles) from Christchurch, and in the heart of the city.
It was designed by former Prime Minister Winston Peters, who was elected in 2014.
The course is a part of the Herminities National Park, which covers an area of about 4,300 hectares (13,000 acres), and includes the Hermine Golf Course, Kirrieming Golf Course and Herminaries National Park.”
We were not aware of the project until we were contacted by a developer and they said, ‘Oh, you have a hole on the ground, it looks like there is a hole.’
“It’s a very special site, but it has caused problems on our whole greenfield,” Ms Dunne said.
“It is certainly a massive environmental disaster and we need to find out exactly how it has happened.”
The Hermans site has also been affected by other major greenfield projects.
In October 2015, the country had a “major” dust storm that left nearly two dozen people dead.
