NOTE 1:

 

Council makes decisions to notify District Plan Changes and Variations and call for submissions, on the recommendation of the Regulatory Committee.

District Plan Hearings Subcommittee members are appointed by the Chair, in conjunction with the Chief Executive, and comprise elected members and/or independent commissioners. All District Plan Hearings Subcommittee members must be certified under the Making Good Decisions programme.

District Plan Hearings Subcommittee makes recommendations to the Regulatory Committee for recommendation to Council on proposed District Plan provisions and matters raised in submissions.

Council makes its decision on the provisions and matters raised in submissions. The Council decision may be appealed to the Environment Court.

Council gives final approval to make District Plan changes operative, in accordance with clause 17 of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991.

 

NOTE 2:

 

The Ministry for the Environment advocates that Councils offer specialist RMA training in areas of law which are difficult to grasp or where mistakes are commonly made. This is to complement the Good Decision Making RMA training that they run (which is an overview and basic summary of decision making, rather than an in-depth training in specific areas of the RMA). Therefore in order to facilitate this, the RMA training run for councillors that wish to be hearings commissioners is mandatory.

 

Reasons for the importance of the training:

1.     Hearings commissioners are kept abreast of developments in the legislation.

2.     Legal and technical errors that have been made previously are avoided (many of which have resulted in Environment Court action which is costly, time consuming and often creates unrealistic expectations for the community).

3.  The reputation of Council as good and fair decision makers or judges (rather than legislators) is upheld.

Proposed New Street Names: Subdivision of 1041A High Street, Avalon

 

Purpose of Report

1.    To seek approval for appropriate street names for one new Public Road and one new Private Road in the new Subdivision at 1041A High Street, Avalon.

Recommendations

That the Committee:

(i)   approves a new street name for the new Public Road 1 attached as Appendix 1 to the report, as suggested below:      

a)    “van Baarle” suggested road type “Place”; or

b)    an alternate name from the Reserved Street Name list, attached as Appendix 2 to the report; or

c)    an appropriate name tabled during the meeting;

(ii)  approves a new street name for the new Private Road 2  attached as Appendix 1 to the report, as suggested below:

a)    “Willem” suggested road type “Lane/Way”; or

b)    “Rotterdam” suggested road type “Lane/Way”; or

c)    “Tulip” suggested road type “Lane/Way”; or

d)    an alternate name from the Reserved Street Name list, attached as Appendix 2 to the report; or

e)    an appropriate name tabled during the meeting; and

(iii) approves the appropriate road type (as permitted by the New Zealand Standard As/NZS  4819:2011) as shown attached as Appendix 3 to the report.

These recommendations are made so the development may proceed to completion as a variety of utility connections and other administrative bodies require individual street addresses in order for the necessary connections to be provided.

 

Background

2.    The development of 1041A High Street, Avalon will create one new public road, one new private road and 32 residential properties; 24 gaining access off the new Public Road and eight gaining access off the new Private Road. The roads require new street names.

3.    The responsibility for naming new private roads within Lower Hutt lies with the Community Boards or, in this case, with the Regulatory Committee for areas of the city not represented by Community Boards.

4.    The subdivision cannot proceed to completion without a legal street address.

Discussion

5.    The developer has requested that Council consider the following names. These have been checked with Land Information New Zealand received the comments as shown in italics. All submitted names present strong connections to the developer’s family and the Dutch community as a whole.

6.    For Public Road (1):

a)    “van Baarle” – After the developer’s father who migrated to New Zealand in the 1950’s. van Baarle is Dutch and represents a significant group of immigrants who settled in Lower Hutt and it is a reminder of the influence and origins of the immigrants who are part of Lower Hutt’s history.
Acceptable to use.

 

7.    For Private Road (2):

a)    “Willem” – Developer’s father’s, grandfather’s, great grandfather’s etc. first name as well as the name of the current king of Holland.
Acceptable to use.

NOTE:  there is William Street, Petone (approx. 6kms) similarities and proximity could cause confusion.

 

b)    “Christina” - Developer’s mother’s, grandmother’s etc. first name.
Not acceptable to use.

NOTE: road name duplication – there is already Christina Grove, Normandale (approx. 5kms).

 

c)    “Rotterdam” – The City in Netherlands where the developer’s parents Willem and Christina were born and migrated from.
Acceptable to use.

 

d)    Tulip” – Suggested by the developer out of the Reserved Street Name List attached as Appendix 2, as Tulips are connected to the Netherlands and is in keeping with the theme of names suggested.
Pre-approved by LINZ.

8.    The background of the suggested names “van Baarle” and “Willem” is attached to this report as Appendix 4.

9.    Officers have requested the developer for additional background information on the other suggested names.

10.  When an individual’s first name and/or surname is to be used as a street name the person must be deceased and the name is typically not used unless a family member can be contacted to confirm they are happy with its use.

Options

11.  The suggested name for the Public Road (1) meets the requirements of the New Zealand Standard, is approved by Land Information New Zealand, and can be considered for adoption.

“van Baarle”.

12.  The Road Type recommended is:

Place.

13.  Out of the four suggested names for the Private Road (2), three meet the requirements of the New Zealand Standard, is approved by Land Information New Zealand, and can be considered for adoption;

a)      “Willem”

b)      “Rotterdam”

c)       “Tulip”.

14.  The Road Types recommended are:

a)      Lane

b)      Way.

15.  Alternatively, the Committee could select a name for either streets from;

a)      the Reserved Street Name List attached as Appendix 2; or

b)      other names tabled during the meeting.

16.  Other names tabled during the meeting can be considered for use as above but are subject to the requirements of the New Zealand Standard and must have a second recommended name, in case it is not suitable.

17.  An appropriate road type must be selected (as permitted by the New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011) attached as Appendix 3 to the report.

Consultation

18.  Suggestions for new street names have been invited from Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust.

19.  Suggestions have also been sought from the general public with a notice in the Hutt News.

20.  Neither party has made any submissions.

21.  The van Baarle family has expressed their support for the names to be used.

Legal Considerations

22.  The Committee has the delegated responsibility to name the private road.

23.  It is important that new streets are named early in the development stage as a variety of utility connections and other administrative bodies require individual street addresses, in order for the necessary connections to be provided.

Financial Considerations

24.  There are no financial considerations. The developer is responsible for the necessary street name signs. This will be undertaken by the Council contractor with the cost paid for by the developer.

Report no: RC2020/2/58

 

Proposed New Private Street Name: Subdivision of 155-157 Waterloo Road, Hutt Central

 

Purpose of Report

1.    To seek approval for an appropriate street name for the new private road in the new Subdivision of 155-157 Waterloo Road, Hutt Central.

Recommendations

That the Committee:

(i)    approves the name for the new private road in the new Subdivision of 155-157 Waterloo Road, Hutt Central attached as Appendix 1 to the report, from the names suggested below:

a)    “John Reynolds” suggested road type “Lane/ Square”; or

b)    an alternate name from the Reserved Street Name list, attached as Appendix 2 to the report; or

c)    an appropriate name tabled during the meeting; and

(ii)   approves the appropriate road type (as permitted by the New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011) as shown attached as Appendix 3 to the report.

These recommendations are made so the development may proceed to completion as a variety of utility connections and other administrative bodies require individual street addresses in order for the necessary connections to be provided.

 

Background

2.    As an outcome of the development of the former Waterloo Fire Station at 155-157 Waterloo Road, Hutt Central, a new private road and 14 new residential properties will be created as shown in Appendix 1 attached to this report.

3.    The responsibility for naming new private roads within Lower Hutt lies with the Community Boards or, in this case, with the Regulatory Committee for areas of the city not represented by Community Boards.

4.    The subdivision cannot proceed to completion without a legal street address.

Discussion

5.    The developer has requested that Council consider the following options after John Reynolds, a firefighter in the Waterloo Station, to reflect his contribution to the community.

a)  “John Reynolds” Lane/ Square; or

b)  “Reynolds” Lane/ Square.

6.    The background of the name suggested has been attached to this report as Appendix 4.

7.    It is customary with new private roads to place emphasis upon any names suggested by the developer.

8.    These names have been checked with Land Information New Zealand and received the following comments (shown in italics).

a)   “John Reynolds Lane/Square” - John Reynolds Square/Lane Would be acceptable in this location.

b)   “Reynolds Lane/Square” – Not an acceptable option as there is Reynolds Street, Taita (approx. 4kms).  

There are several instances of John Street in the Hutt region and neighbouring Territorial Authorities.  Proximity is close for the roads but John Reynolds Square/Lane does have differentiation over these street names.

9.    When an individual’s first name and/or surname is to be used as a street name the person must be deceased and the name is typically not used unless a family member can be contacted to confirm they are happy with its use.

Options

10.  Of the two options submitted, only the following meets the requirements of the New Zealand Standard, is approved by Land Information New Zealand, and can be considered for adoption.

a)    “John Reynolds”

11.  The Road Types recommended are:

a)    Lane

b)    Square

12.  Alternatively, the Committee could select a name from the Reserved Street Names list attached as Appendix 2.

13.  Other names tabled during the meeting can be considered for use but are subject to the requirements of the New Zealand Standard and must have a second recommended name, in case it is not suitable.

14.  An appropriate road type must be selected (as permitted by the New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011) attached as Appendix 3 to the report.

Consultation

15.  As is normal with the naming of private roads, consultation has been limited to the developer and their community network.

16.  John Reynolds’ family has expressed their support and blessing for the name to be used.

Legal Considerations

17.  The Committee has the delegated responsibility to name the private road.

18.  It is important that new streets are named early in the development stage as a variety of utility connections and other administrative bodies require individual street addresses, in order for the necessary connections to be provided.

Financial Considerations

19.  There are no financial considerations. The developer is responsible for the necessary street name signs. This will be undertaken by the Council contractor with the cost paid by the developer.

Proposed Temporary Road Closure: Muritai Road for the Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association ANZAC Day Event 2020

 

Purpose of Report

1.     The purpose of this report is to seek approval of the Regulatory Committee, as per the authorised process, for the temporary closure of roads in Hutt City for the Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association Anzac Day Event 2020

Recommendations

That the Committee:

(i)    agrees to approve the following proposed temporary road closure, subject to the conditions listed in the Proposed Temporary Road Closure Impact Report, attached as Appendix 1 to the report:

Anzac Day Service
Muritai Road between Rimu Street and Makaro Street, on Saturday 25 April 2020 from 09:30am to 11:00am, attached as Appendix 2 to the report;

(ii)   agrees to rescind, for the annual Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association Anzac Day Event 2020 the parking restrictions on Muritai Road as follows:

Anzac Day Service
Muritai Road (both sides), between Rimu Street and Makaro Street, on Saturday 25 April 2020 from 09:30am to 11:00am; and

(iii)  agrees to impose No Stopping At All Times restrictions, for the annual Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association Anzac Day Event 2020, as follows:

Anzac Day Service
Muritai Road (both sides), between Rimu Street and Makaro Street, on Saturday 25 April 2020 from 09:30am to 11:00am.

For the reasons the proposed road closures are required to accommodate the annual Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association Anzac Day Event 2020; and closures for previous year’s events have not solicited any complaints from the public.

 

Background

2.     Council has received a request from the Secretary of the Eastbourne Memorial RSA (Inc.) for the closure of roads and ‘No Stopping’ restrictions for the annual Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association Anzac Day Event.

3.     Council at its meeting of 12 August 2008 approved a procedure for Council to follow to comply with the Local Government Act 1974 (Schedule 10) (LGA) provisions for temporary road closures for events.

4.     Processes have been established to implement these procedures, including the required communications and consultations prior to any approval of a closure.

5.     For those events where vehicles remaining on roads are considered to be a safety concern, it is necessary for Council to also pass a resolution that, for the duration of the event, the roads be subject to a ‘No Stopping’ resolution.

6.     Council can then erect temporary signage and its Parking Enforcement Officers can attend the event and authorise the removal of any offending vehicles.

7.     This report has been prepared in accordance with the approved procedures.

Discussion

8.     The Council’s Traffic Engineer – Network Operations, acting as Council’s Traffic Engineer, has assessed the proposed closure with regards to its expected impact on traffic. He has provided a professional opinion as to whether the resulting impact on traffic is likely to be reasonable or unreasonable.

9.     The proposed closure, if implemented according to the proposed traffic management plans and in accordance with any specific conditions set by the Traffic Engineer, should not result in any unreasonable impact on traffic.

10.   For the Eastbourne Memorial Returned Services Association Anzac Day Event 2020, any vehicles remaining on the roads as detailed in recommendations (i) to (iii) will be a safety concern and therefore temporary ‘No Stopping Restrictions’ are required to enable those vehicles to be removed.

Consultation

11.   The public was notified that Council was going to consider the proposed temporary road closure through a Public Notice advertisement in The Hutt News on Tuesday 14 January 2020. No correspondence had been received at the time this report was finalised, however any subsequent correspondence will be presented at the Committee Meeting.

12.   Public notice of any decision to close roads will be advertised in The Hutt News.

Legal Considerations

13.   Approval is required from Council, or the Regulatory Committee, to allow for the temporary closure of roads and temporary ‘No Stopping’ restrictions. This will ensure that Council is complying with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1974 (Schedule 10) for the temporary closure of roads for events within its jurisdiction.

14.   In making this recommendation, officers have given careful consideration to the purpose of local government in section 10 of the Local Government Act 2002. Officers believe that this recommendation falls within the purpose of local government in that it complies with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1974 (Schedule 10) for the temporary closure of roads for events.

Financial Considerations

15.   For community events, the cost of public notices in The Hutt News is paid from Council budgets. For commercial events, the cost of the public notices is passed onto the appropriate event organiser. This is a community event.

Proposed Temporary Road Closure Impact Report:

(Eastbourne Memorial RSA ANZAC Day Event 2020)

1.       Description of Event

An application has been received from the Secretary of the Eastbourne Memorial RSA (Inc) to temporarily close Muritai Road (from Makaro Street to Rimu Street), to vehicular traffic on Saturday 25 April 2020 between 9:30am and 11:00am for their annual parade and service.

2.       City Promotions and Events Division

The City Promotions and Events Division have assessed the proposed event with regard to its contribution towards Council’s strategies and policies, and the event is consistent with the objectives and outcomes of these strategies.

3.       Public Notice

The public notice advising that the Council is proposing to consider this closure was published in the Hutt News on Tuesday 14 January 2020.

 

4.       Consultation

 

No objections had been received at the time this report was finalised. Any subsequent objections will be presented to the Regulatory Committee.

 

5.        Traffic Impact Assessment

Prior Closures

The proposed closure for this event will not result in a road being closed for an aggregate of more than 31 days in any year as set down in Schedule 10, Section 11e of the Local Government Act 1974.

Traffic Impact

In the opinion of Charles Agate, Network Traffic Engineer – Transport, acting as Council’s Traffic Engineer, the proposed closure, if implemented according to an approved temporary traffic management plan, is not likely to impede traffic unreasonably, subject to the conditions listed below.
It is noted that the Council reserves the right to modify this opinion at any time.

In this particular instance there should be very little in the way of wider network effects because the event is being held on a public holiday (Anzac Day). Previous closures of this section of Muritai Road on a weekend have had no reported traffic problems.

6.        Conditions of Closure
Subsequent to approval, the applicant will be notified of the decision, and if approved, required to adhere to the following conditions;

·    The access requirements of residents and business affected by the closures must be taken into account.

·    The event organiser must apply for a Corridor Access Request (CAR) via Submitica (www.submitica.com) no less than 30 days prior to the event

·    The event organiser must provide to Council a compliant Temporary Traffic Management Plan (TTMP) prepared by a suitably qualified person and be appropriate for both the level of road and the nature of the closure, no less than 30 days prior to the event.

·    All Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) must comply with NZTA’s Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM) and any conditions set down by Councils’ Corridor Manager and/or Traffic Management Coordinator (TMC)

·    The event organiser must gain both CAR and TTMP Approvals a minimum of 7 days prior to the scheduled event date to ensure the event can proceed.

·    All TTM is to be installed by suitably qualified personnel, under the supervision of a NZTA qualified Site Traffic Management Supervisor (STMS).   

·    The closure is restricted to the roads,  dates and times as approved by Council.

·    The event organiser must have a valid Health and Safety plan which details how emergency vehicles can gain access to the closure area during the event.

·    The event organiser is required to comply with the directions of both the Police and authorised officers of the Road Controlling Authority (HCC).

·    The event organiser is responsible for the management of all work relating to the physical closure of roads and maintaining both the closure and public safety within the closure area.

·    The event organiser is responsible for ensuring closed roads are left in a suitably clean and tidy state following the completion of the event.
