Application to introduce Puccinia arechavaletae and Cissoanthonomus tuberculipennis for biological control of Cardiospermum grandiflorum (grand balloon vine) in Rarotonga
The proposal is a tourist accommodation development containing 6 individual self-contained one bedroom bungalows suitably positioned to fit on the section. The closest bungalow to the beach is 15m away from the MHWM.
These are timber-framed buildings, 6m wide by 7m (5m long plus a covered 2m decking), with a total area of 42m² for each building. Roof is of gable design with pre-painted corrugated iron roof cladding.
The buildings are designed to be on poles approximately 500-1000mm from ground level to minimise damage to building structure from the impacts of sea surges and also to avoid crabs getting into the building.
A secondary wastewater treatment system is proposed to service the 6 bungalow units.
A small car park is proposed adjacent to the Air Raro office for clients.
The section will be properly landscaped with a gravel walkway designed from the car park to the bungalows
