How much can considerations of private economic gain be used to justify damaging the natural values of a Conservation Park?

We're considering at the moment a proposal to create a private road through part of Coromandel Forest Park. The road would clear over 8000m2 of vegetation, including mature kauri, tanekaha and rata. The roads purpose is to provide a more economical access to a pine plantation.

The DOC report conclusions include that "Once the access-way has been constructed it is expected that there will be minimal ongoing
adverse effects"...does this suggest that once something is gone it never existed?
