community boards – functions and delegations 

This document records the delegation of Council functions, responsibilities, duties, and powers to Community Boards. 

The Community Boards have been established under section 49 of the Local Government Act 2002 to represent, and act as an advocate for, the interests of their community. 

The delegations are expressed in general terms.  The delegations shall be exercised with proper regard for the Council’s strategic direction, policies, plans, Standing Orders and its interpretation of its statutory obligations.  The delegations are to be read together with the following propositions.

These delegations are based on the following principles:

·                Issues relevant to a specific community should be decided as closely as possible to that community.  Where an issue has broader implications, i.e. any effects of the decision cross the board boundary, the matter will be decided by Council after seeking a recommendation from the relevant Community Board. This includes any decisions that have strategic importance to the city as a whole, and those that will impact on or create consequences for other parts of the city or the city as a whole. An assessment of issues that fall into this category will be made as part of the corporate agenda process for each meeting cycle. Any uncertainties over interpretation will be referred to the Mayor and Chief Executive to determine in consultation with the relevant Standing Committee and Board Chair;

·                Efficient decision-making should be paramount;

·                Conflicts of interest should be avoided and risks minimised;

·                To ensure processes are free from bias and pre-determination Community Boards should not adjudicate on issues on which they have advocated or wish to advocate to Council;

·                Community Boards should proactively and constructively engage with residents, Residents’ Associations and local community groups on local matters that affect the community they represent, raise with Council issues raised with them by their community, and advocate on behalf of their community.

These delegations:

(a)        recognise that the role of Council is to look after the affairs of the city as a whole, and the role of a Community Board is to represent the interests of its community.

(b)        do not delegate any function, duty or power which a statute (for example section 53(3) and clause 32(1) of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002) prohibits from being delegated;

(c)        are subject to and do not affect any delegation which the Council has already made or subsequently makes to any other committee, Council officer or other member of staff;

(d)       are subject to any other statutory requirements that may apply to a particular delegation;

(e)        are subject to any notice issued by the Council, from time to time, to a Community Board that a particular issue must be referred to Council for decision;

(f)         reflect that decisions with significant financial implications should be made by Council (or a committee with delegated authority);

(g)        promote centralisation of those functions where the appropriate expertise must be ensured; and

(h)       reflect that all statutory and legal requirements must be met.

DELEGATIONS

Engage informally with Council through:

·             Council Briefings - Community Board members are invited to attend all Council Briefings unless the topic is for Council members only and outlined as such on the invitation.

·             Quarterly meetings of the Community Board Chairs with the Mayor and Chief Executive to consider the effectiveness of community representation and the accompanying support mechanisms.

·             Corporate Leadership Team contact, with one senior officer assigned as the contact person to attend each Community Board meeting and provide liaison with Council.

·             Elected Member Support – Democratic Services hopes to establish a position that will provide seamless liaison between Council, staff and Community Boards.

·             Corporate agenda process for each meeting cycle, providing information on the Council’s work programme for the year broken down by cycle.

Provide their local community’s input, through preparing reports or submissions, on:

·             Council’s Long Term Plan and/or Annual Plan.

·             Council’s policies, programmes (including the District Roading Programme) and bylaws.

·             Changes or variations to the District Plan.

·             Resource management issues which it believes are relevant to its local community, through advocacy.

·             The disposal or acquisition of significant assets.

·             Road safety including road safety education within its area.

·             The review of Local Community Plans as required.

·             Any other issues a Board believes is relevant to its local area.

Reports may be prepared by the Board and presented to Council Committees, along with an officer’s recommendation, for consideration.

Any submissions lodged by a Board require formal endorsement by way of resolution.

Standing Order 21.16, Community Board and Youth Council Participation in Meetings of Council and Standing Committees, makes provision for the Chair of a Community Board (or their representative as advised by the Chair prior to the meeting) to participate in discussion on any matters which are of interest to a particular ward area at meetings of the Standing Committees of Council, but there are no voting rights or rights to move or second motions. The rules of debate applicable to members of the Council apply to the Community Board representative. Notification of the intention to exercise speaking rights and identification of the relevant agenda item are to be provided to the Chair prior to the meeting. In exceptional circumstances Board representatives may be invited to participate on specific subjects at meetings of the full Council, at the discretion of the Council Chair.

 

Co-ordinate with Council staff:

·             Local community consultation on city-wide issues on which the Council has called for consultation.

Provide input to officers on:

·             Roadworks, water supply, sewerage, stormwater drainage, waste management and traffic management for its local area.

·             Parks and reserves and associated public facilities, recreational facilities and community activities within its local area.

Develop:

·             Community Response Plans in close consultation with the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office, emergency organisations, the community, residents’ associations, other community groups, and local businesses, for review on an annual basis.

·             Arts and crafts in its area.

Grant:

·             Local community awards.

Appoint:

·         Amendments to the Eastbourne Community Trust Deed (Eastbourne Community Board only).

Decide:

In the Community Board’s area:

·             Naming new roads and alterations to street names.

·             Official naming of parks, reserves and sports grounds within the provisions of Council’s Naming Policy. Note [1]

·             Removal and/or planting of street trees within the provisions of Council’s Operational Guide for Urban Forest Plan where a dispute arises that cannot be resolved at officer level.  Note [2]

·             The granting of leases and licences in terms of Council policy to voluntary organisations for Council owned properties in their local area, for example, halls, but not including the granting of leases and licences to community houses and centres.

·             The granting of rights-of-way and other easements over local purpose reserves and granting of leases or licences on local purpose reserves.

·             The granting of leases and licences for new activities in terms of Council policy to community and commercial organisations over recreation reserves subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977 and land managed as reserve subject to the provisions of the Local Government 2002, in their local area.  (Note: renewal of existing leases and licences will be reported once a year to the appropriate Council Committee).

·             The allocation of funding from the Community Engagement Fund in accordance with Council’s adopted guidelines (attached as Appendix 1).

·             Expenditure of funds allocated by the Council to the Board from the Miscellaneous Budget to cover expenditure associated with the activities of the Board.  The Chair to approve expenditure, in consultation with the Board, and forward appropriate documentation to the Committee Advisor for authorisation.  Boards must not exceed their annual expenditure from the Miscellaneous Budget.

·             The allocation of funding for the training and development of Community Board members, including formal training courses, attendance at seminars or attendance at relevant conferences.

·              

Resource Management Hearings:

·             Each Community Board may have one suitably trained member available for selection to sit on the Hearings Subcommittee for notified resource consent applications. This will require the member to hold current certification under the Making Good Decisions Training, Assessment and Certification Programme for RMA Decision-Makers. No Board member shall be eligible for selection if the Board has made a submission on the matter to be decided.

NOTE: 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 elected members who wish to be hearings commissioners is mandatory.

Reasons for the importance of the training:

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

§  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).

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

 

Consider and make recommendations to Council on:

·             Particular issues notified from time to time by Council to the Community Board, including roading issues within the Community Board’s area.

·             Roading issues considered by the Mayor and Chief Executive to be strategic due to their significance on a city-wide basis, including links to the State Highway, or where their effects cross ward or community boundaries.

·             Parks, reserves and sports ground naming for sites that have a high profile, city-wide importance due to their size and location and/or cross ward or community boundaries.

·             Representatives to any Council committee, subcommittee, subordinate decision-making body, working group, or ad hoc group on which a Community Board representative is required by Council.

·             The setting, amending or revoking of speed limits in accordance with the Hutt City Council Speed Limits Bylaw 2015, including the hearing of any submissions.

CONFIRMED as a true and correct record

Dated this 4th day of November 2020.

 

 

FROM:

Lance Stewart

Wainuiomata Community Board

 

Hello. I am about to start a movement to achieve some very positive, desperately needed, desirable changes to all the car parks along Wainuiomata Beach, at the south end of Coast Road, Wainuiomata.

The simple fact is that all three of the carparks along this stretch of beach road (and the beach road itself) are in deplorable condition, with dangerous and unsightly barricades, ditches, fences, rocks, bollards, concrete rubbish, disintegrating road surfaces, etc., trying to dissuade visitors from coming there.

 

There is a lot of confusion about who exactly has authority over which piece of land, and who is making the bad decisions that have brought about the present dreadful access ways to the otherwise remarkable Southern Coast of this part of North Island.

The state of the roads, parking area surfaces, gateways, vegetation, etc., is highly unprofessional and unpleasant and a disgusting presentation foisted first of all on the poor people of Wainuiomata, but also upon visitors from the Wellington region, then visitors from all over New Zealand, and finally visitors from overseas. A lot of people from all places come here every week.

We all deserve far better than this, but particularly the people from Wainuiomata who would be the most common and frequent visitors to this area as it is “OUR” beach. It is part of Wainuiomata!

 

In the minds of the authorities who have business administrating this area, and the councils and organisations who have control of it, and in the people who visit here, I wish to start the change of thinking needed to bring about the complete overhaul of this area, so that it becomes a beautiful place to welcome all people from wherever, to help them to have a very pleasant visit to this remarkable natural environment.

 

THIS AREA has been promoted for all sorts of recreation from casual walks, photography, fishing, underwater diving, scenery observation, cycling, tramping, history observation, wild animal observations, beach walks, swimming in the rivers, etc. It has been included in the East Harbour Regional Park, the Remutaka Cycle Trail, access to the Remutaka Forest Park, the cycling from Eastbourne around the coast and back through Wainuiomata, and is mentioned in things like the Great Destinations Scheme (possibly run by DOC or Tourism NZ).

 

 And yet the access and facilities at the entry points are the most basic, cheap nasty places I have ever come across in New Zealand and other countries. I have never seen worse than the nightmare created by uncaring people at the beach off Wainui.

 

Here’s what really NEEDS TO HAPPEN:

1. All the different councils, and organisations, staff members, and even the local farmers, and suitable members of the public, need to immediately get together and actively collaborate in cooperation to bring about the changes as fast as possible.

 

2. What needs to be done is all three carparks need to be bulldozed flat, expanded to their legal boundaries, correctly cambered, surfaced and tar sealed.

All the hideous rock barricades, bollard lines, ditches, ditch-making-removed-material forming another sort of physical and visual barricade, and vastly too many fences need to be, and must be, removed. Gravel piles, old concrete waste, and general rubbish and glass need to be permanently removed. Water traps, (in dips in the present roading surfaces), must be eliminated to prevent the formation of large muddy puddles.

 

3. Ideally concrete and river-rock walls, or concrete moulded walls incorporating relief sculptures should be placed around each car park instead of the hideous, dangerous “wartime barricade mentality” structures that are there now.

(Examples of this type of beautification

 

4. Beautify the parks with appropriate vegetation.

 

5. Increase the actual parking space within the present legal boundaries by removing all the barricades with the parking area.

 

6. Construct new, beautiful gateways from the parking areas to the wild areas and get rid of the ugly, dangerous structures that are presently there.

 

7. Construct rugged toilet facilities at each carpark, of the various types commonly used by the Department of Conservation at outdoors and remote locations.

Supply safe and strong rubbish bins for the collection of common waste items like bottles, paper, and picnic waste.

Institute appropriate cleaning and sewage removal procedures.

 

8. Install recording security cameras on poles at each carpark for security and anti-vandalism purposes. These cameras must record the registration numbers of visiting vehicles to help capture any criminals doing any sort of crime down here on this “remote” coastal strip. Things like potential vehicle break-ins must be prevented when people are away from their vehicles for prolonged times.

 

9. The groups of organisations should also combine their development funds to

Tar-seal all the presently ripped up, very rough, potholed, boulder-strewn gravel road from the present tar-seal end right down to the carpark beside the Orongorongo River Bridge.

 

Let’s all work together to create a beautiful and functional and safe entryway to the wilds.

I hereby call upon all the members of the Wainuiomata Community Council to please support me in this quest. It is a completely feasible possibility that will not require huge amounts of architects design plans, but can be simply achieved with though and logical work.

I wish to be involved in this project because I can provide useful, logical input to help prevent the monstrosities already put in place by some low-level-thinking persons who have done the utterly minimal work here, because they simply do not care.

So please, anyone who supports my quest, let’s communicate, and meet and discuss all the possibilities for how this work can be achieved, and set out to get it all done to a high standard.

Throughout a history of about 180 years, Wainuiomata has been treated very badly with facilities in the past, and NOW is the time to demand change, and help us to get nice structures like many other coastal and small towns in New Zealand have.

Enough of Crap! Let’s have QUALITY at long last, at least for this small area!

 

I call upon all members of this council, to each get in your own vehicle very soon and drive down the Coast Road, to see how it all is, and particularly to visit each carpark and to drive along the battered road, and stop and have a careful look around and examine for yourselves the horrors of this place, and realise that change is necessary.

Come back to Wainui and tell me you agree with me and that you will do all you can to bring about desirable and necessary changes in this location.

Everybody will benefit when this work is done. No one loses!

It’s good for every visitor that comes here.

While there is a fall-off in some tourist activities because of the Covid Crisis, that makes it the perfect opportunity to get on with the work now, to have it all ready for the future and the next hundred years.

 

For those of you wondering about FUNDING:

Right now, because of the Covid Crisis, the Government is offering masses of money for SHOVEL-READY PROJECTS!

Let’s get the Hutt City Council (and the other organisations) to immediately apply for that funding for this great and necessary purpose!

 

I have been told (and I am at this moment awaiting verification) that one third to one half a million dollars !!! has been allocated for clean-up and development work at the Remutaka Forest Park along the Coast Road. This money is coming from DOC.

Well, hell, let’s get them on the phone and demand that they allocate similar or more amounts for their input to the work required on the coast which is VASTLY MORE IMPORTANT at the moment!

DOC has responsibility for upkeep and development in the coastal region too!

 

Part of the catch to work that needs to be done down at the coast is that different organisations have different responsibilities.

 AT this moment I believe DOC and the Hutt City Council have joint responsibility for the new carpark at Orongorongo Bridge as part of the Remutaka Cycle Trail, and for care of the coastal track.

The Wellington Regional Council has responsibility for water control (drains and streams, (and maybe the rivers)), and possibly responsibility for the carpark by the Wainuiomata River, and the East Harbour Regional Park which runs along the river in this area.. I believe they have responsibilities for the area from Baring Head down to the end of the tar seal on the road.

I have spoken with the Ranger for GWRegional Council (Jo Greenman) and she has told me she has plans for doing some small scale upgrading of the Carpark 1 at the Wainuiomata River Corner, and also much more work at the carpark near the recently constructed new bridge on the lighthouse access road off Coast Road. She has recently installed a high quality security camera system at that carpark.

She also told me that the Greater Wellington Regional Council has just released the Parks Network Plan for the next 10 years, and they are presently accepting public submission on matters in the plan until sometime in October.

The web address for this is:

https://www.gw.govt.nz/parks-network-plan/#:~:text=The%20Parks%20Network%20Plan%20(PNP,under%20the%20Reserves%20Act%201977.&text=The%20Reserves%20Act%20requires%20that%20management%20plans%20are%20kept%20up%20to%20date.

Or, just search on Greater Wellington Regional Council Parks Network Plan.

Look for the sections on Baring Head, and East Harbour Regional Park, etc.

 

Tourism NZ may also be available to supply some funding, possibly also through the government Shovel-Ready Projects scheme.

 

The Hutt City Council has responsibility for all the roading, probably. And many other things there.

 

One catch about things, may involve who actually owns the land at different places in this area, and what covenants may have been signed for land usage and/or development.

The Tourism NZ organisation could be called upon for funding input and shovel-ready financing because they too are promoting tourism and recreation in this area.

 

So one piece of work I am going to ask the Community Council to do is to obtain:

1. A clarification of exactly which organisation is responsible or jointly responsible for areas of land down at the coast, with a map to clearly indicate things.

 

2. A clarification of who actually owns and/or controls land down there?

 

3. A clarification of who is responsible for a maintenance schedule, and improvement plans for the area.

 

4. A clarification of who is responsible for Health and Safety down there, including toilets, etc.

 

5. A clarification of usability and accessibility, ascetics, visuals, and what are we telling our visitors.

 

6.  A notification of which Council officers to contact for various sorts of information that will help to facilitate all of the progress

 

Will someone on the Community Council please get back to me with this above information in writing, to I can pursue my quest with diligence.

My little talk and the showing of a few photographs on the evening of Wednesday 26th August 2020 is just a very basic, brief starting point for this activity growth on the projects concerned.

 

Thank you very much.   Lance Stewart.

Wainuiomata Heartland Ride - Update

 

Kia ora Wainuiomata Community Board members and Wainuiomata Heartland Ride Working Group members,

 

We've been working with Love Wainuiomata on the Wainuiomata Heartland Ride project. This route is already being regularly cycled by Remutaka Cycle Trail riders as well as other cyclists. Formalising this as an official NZ Cycle Trail Heartland Ride, connecting the Remutaka Cycle Trail, means the safety and economic benefits for the community can be maximised, as well as the experience and safety improvements for riders.

 

It's provisionally approved by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) to be part of the Nga Haeranga New Zealand Cycle Trail network providing a grade 4 on-road cycle route through Wainuiomata for experienced riders.  It'll connect  the two current start and finish points of the Remutaka  Cycle Trail providing riders with a complete journey. It takes riders from the Orongorongo River along Coast Road to Wainuiomata's town centre and over the Hill via the Wainuiomata Shared Pathway - Te Hikoi Ararewa to connect with Hutt River and Petone.

 

The opportunities for local businesses are an important element too and we're keen to support businesses and organisations to make the most of opportunities for riders to engage with locals, and try our amazing outdoor activities and Wainuiomata hospitality.

 

We're working with Love Wainuiomata to help bring this to life after the concept came from and is being championed by the community since 2019. Love Wainuiomata has held a public hui, presented regularly to the Wainuiomata Community Board, featured in Wainuiomata News, gathered input online survey and sharing with the the Wainuiomata Rural Community Association members. We're continuing to seek input from the community via a working group as more is defined about the project and will be doing a letter box drop for all Coast Road rural properties very shortly.

 

The trail name is being worked on and a marketing plan is being developed for promoting the ride as a Grade 4 New Zealand Cycle Trail ride which is designed for experienced riders.

 

We've now developed a proposed works list (PDF 1.9 MB) for the route which includes signage. We've prepared it in consultation with NZTA and feedback from the wider community including the Wainuiomata Rural Community Association. Our approach to this work along the route is to: provide route improvements that will benefit all road users including additional and updated signage create a safe and enjoyable route for riders that is easy to follow and provides key safety information support all road users to be safe by ensuring they are aware of each other - including motorists, cyclists and horse­riders create a sense of journey for riders that has clear start and end points continue to enhance the trail with interpretation that engages them about what's on offer on the route, including local shopping opportunities and attractions.

 

We're expecting to complete this work in Spring ahead of visitors in Summer.

More detail on the project is at huttcity.govt.nz/heartlandride

 

All feedback is greatly appreciated.

 

Kind Regards

Wainuiomata Community Board – August 2020 – Sally-Ann Moffat

Cleanfill Discussion - Questions for WCB

 

I request in writing that these questions are included in the minutes in full along with any answers given.

 

Before I start and before the timer starts - I seeking clarity on a Standing Order - Can I record this public cleanfill discussion on behalf of the wider affected community who cannot be here tonight because of reasons including child care and Covid-19.

 

I also wish to publicly express my opposition to the proposed shooting range and to state that pursuant to section 95 of the RMA I am an affected party and I oppose the shooting range being sited on contaminated land known as the old Wainui landfill.

 

Thank you WCB for letting me speak, Thank you all for coming tonight. HCC staff are here as they are paid to defend the HCC position.

 

The Community Board are here in their role to proactively and constructively engage with residents on local matters that affect the community they represent and raise with Council issues raised with them by their community and advocate on behalf of their community.

 

I am here as a member of this community and an active protector of our awa, our river of national importance: the Wainuiomata River. As an affected party regarding the Wainuiomata Cleanfill my aim is to remind HCC of their accountability to this entire community in meeting their obligations in regards to the conditions of the consent of the Wainuiomata Cleanfill.

I do this tonight by asking questions to our Chair and asking him to put those questions to our HCC paid staff that are present at the WCB meeting tonight.

 

Questions:

 

1)      The noise report showed evidence of non-compliance of noise pollution when it was sent released to CLG members on Thursday 23rd July then when re-issued on Thursday August 13th it has been ‘reviewed’ by HCC staff to say it is now compliant, was the testing robust and do those reviewers have any acoustics qualifications? Yes/No

 

2)      Are the birds of Wainuiomata louder than a compactor or bulldozer? Yes/No

 

3)      Is a passing car louder than a compactor, truck or a bulldozer? Yes/No

 

4)      Do you (person answering these questions) have qualifications in acoustics? Yes/No

 

5)      When will the Wainuiomata Community Board receive the requested report on the search for new Cleanfill locations?

 

6)      When will the W.C.B receive the requested Reports on complaints and on non-compliance to date of the Cleanfill?

 

7)      Why have H.C.C not supplied the reports as requested in June to the W.C.B Chair?

 

8)      Is it true – yes or no – that the request from the W.C.B chair for those reports has been treated as a LGOIMA?

 

9)      What is the W.C.B intending to do about this lack of transparency and cooperation  from Council?

 

10)  Is it true the Cleanfill is currently non-compliant as per the independent audit? True or false

 

11)  Why is HCC obtaining specialist noise reports from people who are not professional members of the acoustic society?

 

12)  Consent condition #25 states that you must notify the CLG and invite them to observe the audit – Is it correct that did HCC not do what the consent condition states? Yes/no

 

13)  Consent condition #14 states that you must notify the CLG of any construction at the cleanfill – Is it correct that HCC did not notify the CLG of the ‘construction activity’ described in the SMP (pg 11 #5) as: “sealing of the existing site accessway” as per consent condition 14? Given the description that “all works on site must be in accordance with the SMP” Yes/No

 

14)  Are all Wainuiomata residents deserving of quiet enjoyment of our properties? Yes/No

 

15)  Are the locations of the noise testing fully in complete compliance with the Consent Conditions? (Re: the full notes of Consent Condition 12)?

 

16)  Compaction work at the cleanfill - is that considered to be construction work? Yes/no

 

17)  The CLG have been advised by HCC staff that HCC want to increase truck numbers at the cleanfill. This will affect the wider Wainuiomata community, road users, schools and kindergartens etc…We have also been advised that this change is outside the scope of the current consent therefore will need to go to a Hearing. Is this correct? Yes/no

 

18)  Will the proposed change in truck numbers be publicly notified to the wider community of Wainuiomata in the form of a publicly notified consent change, limited notified, or non-notified?

 

19)  The CLG have been told by HCC staff that HCC are looking at potential new sites and have considered the Wainuiomata Landfill site and Waiau Street site?  True or false

Kia ora everyone, 

 

Last time we met we were moving to Alert Level 2 - I hope this doesn’t become a common occurrence! 

 

COVID-19 

I hope you and your community are all keeping safe. Can I say thank you for your leadership in the community, and continue to set a good example with model behaviour - It is one of the most powerful things we can do at the moment. 

 

We must keep reminding our communities to follow official advice, make sure people are downloading the tracer app or keeping a diary, social distance themselves or wear a facemask if they have to, and keep washing your hands. 

 

For Lower Hutt, Alert Level 2 means that gatherings throughout the city, including at council facilities, are limited to 100 people, rubbish and recycling services are operating as usual, we have re-opened our rates help services, Moera library is closed but the others remain open, and the rest of our facilities and services operating as usual. 

 

Moving away from COVID-19, there has been a whole load of work Council has undergone since we last met. 

 

Shovel Ready 

We have recently received funding for two Shovel Ready projects. The $27m for Naenae Pool is a huge win for the community, and the rest of the city. Not only will the funding allow us to rebuild the pool faster, but we will be able to rebuild Naenae’s local economy faster too. 

 

We also received $15m for the Eastern Bays shared path. This is another big win for the community advocates who have campaigned for safer transport infrastructure. The shared path will encourage active modes of transport, attract local visitors and support tourism, and connect to existing cycle trails. 

 

Credit rating 

This collective funding of $42m shows the confidence the Government has in our work plan, and also in our financial stability. This is backed up by Standard & Poor’s recent credit rating of HCC, with the report stating that we’ve retained our AA credit rating with a positive outlook, and improved in our budgetary performance and liquidity scores. This shows that our new approach is fronting up to the challenges we face, and building on the foundations that existed.

 

Policy updates 

Local Government New Zealand held their AGM last week. You will be pleased to know that among many significant remits, we collectively voted to place a moratorium on water bottling across New Zealand. 

 

Climate Change

The climate change WG is bringing a couple of recommendations for the draft LTP, and those recommendations are going to be discussed at the next community environment committee. 


Officers are now close to finalising the proposed lead-group to co-design the process for engaging with the community on climate change, including the development of a pathway for the city to reduce its emissions to zero by 2050 and how to respond to forecast climate impacts. 

Council reviews 

In other news, Council has finished our rubbish and recycling consultation which gathered nearly 4000 submissions, and we are now starting to engage the community on the regional waste bylaw. 

 

Council is also in the process of reviewing our district plan, a four-year piece of work. I encourage you to promote this amongst people in your communities. This is an important review for our city, as it will set the strategic vision for how our Lower Hutt will look for our future generations.    

 

Kia ora.

Proposed Temporary Road Closure - Love Wainuiomata Community Christmas Parade

 

Purpose of Report

1.    The purpose of this report is to seek the endorsement of the Wainuiomata Community Board for the temporary closure of Burden Avenue as part of the Love Wainuiomata Community Christmas Parade, on Saturday 28th November 2020 between the hours of 6:30am to 11:00am.

Recommendations

That the Wainuiomata Community Board, subject to the conditions outlined in the Traffic Impact Report attached  as Appendix 1 to this report:

(i)    receives the information;

(ii)   endorses the application made by Love Wainuiomata to temporarily close Burden Avenue, Wainuiomata, as part of their Annual Love Wainuiomata Community Christmas Parade to be held on 28 November 2020 between the hours of 6:30am to 11:00am as shown in Appendix 2 to the report as follow;

·          Burden Avenue, Wainuiomata
( from the intersection of Coast /Main Road to the end)

(iii)  endorses the temporary rescinding of any parking restrictions within the closure area (as shown in Appendix 2), and the imposition (where required) of  ‘No Stopping’ parking restrictions between the hours of 6:30am to 11:00am on 28 November 2020 to facilitate the setup of floats associated with the parade; and

(iv)  notes that access for residents and businesses along Burden Avenue will be managed throughout the closure period.

For the reason that the requested road closure is deemed necessary to facilitate the safety of organisers, participants, residents and the general public.

 

Background

2.    Every year Wainuiomata has a very popular Community Christmas Parade.

3.    The parade assembles in Burden Avenue, then travels along Main Road, turns into Wainuiomata Road then finishes once it has turned right into the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre Carpark (off Wainuiomata Road – beside the Real estate Agents).

4.    It is necessary to formally close Burden Avenue to through traffic to ensure the safety of those readying for the parade. Local residents can still be escorted into/out of the closure.

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

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

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

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

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

Discussion

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

11.   The proposed closures, if implemented in accordance with an approved Temporary Traffic Management Plan, and in accordance with any specific conditions set by the Traffic Engineer, should not result in any unreasonable impact on traffic.

12.   Any vehicles remaining within the proposed road closures during this event will be a safety concern and therefore temporary No Stopping restrictions are required to enable these vehicles to be removed.

13.   Where existing parking restrictions are in place, these are to be temporarily rescinded to facilitate the temporary No Stopping restrictions.

14.   Temporary Traffic Management Plans prepared for the event will show how traffic safety and flow will be managed.

Options

15.  The Wainuiomata Community Board can:

a)    endorse the proposed temporary closures and associated parking restrictions as presented in the report as is; or

b)    endorse the proposed temporary closures and associated parking restrictions with additional comment that will be presented to the Regulatory Committee to assist in its decision; or

c)    disagree with the proposed temporary closures and associated parking restrictions, and provide comment to be presented to the Regulatory Committee to assist in its decision.

16.   Council officers recommend option (a) given that the event is an annual event with a long history within the Wainuiomata area.

Climate Change Impact and Considerations

17.  The matters addressed in this report have been considered in accordance with the process set out in Council’s Climate Change Considerations Guide.

18.  The decision will not increase greenhouse gas emissions, and will not be affected by a changing climate. There are no opportunities in this decision to reduce emissions or build resilience.     

Consultation

19.  The public notice advising that the Council is proposing to consider this closure was published in the classifieds section of the Hutt News on Tuesday 22 September 2020 – No correspondence was received.

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

21.  Love Wainuiomata are currently undertaking consultation with the residents of Burden Street. The results of this local consultation will need to be with the Traffic Engineer prior to the Regulatory Committee meeting set down to review this request. Any objections would be presented to the Committee at the meeting.

Legal Considerations

22.  Approval is required from either Council or the Regulatory Committee to allow for the temporary closure of roads, and for the imposition of 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 within its jurisdiction.

Financial Considerations

23.  For community events, the cost of the 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 event is a community event.

Easement- Arakura Reserve- 5 Norfolk Street

 

Purpose of Report

1.    This report seeks approval for an easement over a small portion of local purpose reserve land known as Arakura Kindergarten situated at 192A Wellington Road, Wainuiomata.

Recommendations

That the Wainuiomata Community Board:

(i)    agrees to an easement over the reserve property at 192A Wellington Road, Wainuiomata being LOT 43 DP 28358 LOT 1 DP 51896 & PT LOT 97 DP 19728 - GAZ 1989 p 3011 in favour of the property at 5 Norfolk Street for the purposes of the rights to access existing stormwater and sewer mains; and

(ii)   notes that Section 48 (3) of the Reserves Act 1977 applies.

For the reason to fulfil obligations to allow easements over reserve land in accordance to Section 48 of the Reserves Act 1977.

 

Background

2.    The applicant is in the process of subdividing 5 Norfolk Street into two lots. The subdivision application has not yet been lodged.

3.    An application for building permit to construct a kindergarten on 192A Wellington Road was lodged August 1975.

4.    192A Wellington Road, Wainuiomata was gazetted as local purpose reserve (previously recreation reserve) in 1989 p 3011.

5.    Section 48 of the Reserves Act 1977 permits administering bodies to grant rights of way and other easements over any part of the reserve for the provision of water systems; or providing or facilitating access or the supply of water to or the drainage of any other land not forming part of the reserve or for any other purpose connected with any such land.

6.    According to section 48 (3) of the Reserves Act 1977 public notice shall not apply in any case where- the reserve is vested in an administering body and is not likely to be materially altered or permanently damaged; and the rights of the public in respect of the reserve are not likely to be permanently affected by the establishment and lawful exercise of the right of way or other easement.

Discussion

7.    New sewer and stormwater connections will be provided for Lot 1. It is proposed that Lot 2 will utilise the existing connections which will be renewed. It should be noted that Council records do not show the existing stormwater connection which is likely to be there, if there is not a connection, then a new stormwater connection will also be provided for Lot 2.

8.    Wellington Water was consulted; there are no capacity issues with these existing mains. Stormwater attenuation is proposed for the subdivision, meaning that by using attenuation tanks the stormwater run-off from the subdivision will be the same pre and post development.

9.    Easements will be provided and created under Section 48 of the Reserves Act, the applicant will pay for the costs of registering these easements.

10.  In terms of construction, it is proposed that the works will be in the same area to minimise impact. All disturbed areas will be reinstated to how it was prior to construction and to Council standards.

11.  Health and Safety will be a priority and the areas of works will be fenced off and due to the location and the existing fencing at the kindergarten there is likely to be no effects on the centre. All access for the works will come from the subdivision site, and there should be no need to use the Kindergartens driveway.

Options

12.  Agrees to the easement over 192A Wellington Road, Wainuiomata in favour of the property at 5 Norfolk Street, Wainuiomata.

13.  Does not agree to the easement, inhibiting the ability for a new dwelling to be constructed.

Climate Change Impact and Considerations

14.  The matters addressed in this report have been considered in accordance with the process set out in Council’s Climate Change Considerations Guide.

Consultation

15.  There has been no formal consultation on this proposal.

Legal Considerations

16.  Section 48 of the Reserves Act 1977 provides Council with the means to grant the easement over part of Local Purpose Reserve 192A Wellington Road, Wainuiomata. As the reserve is not expected to be materially altered or permanently damaged and the rights of the public not likely to be permanently affected, there is no requirement to publicly notify the proposal to grant the easement.

Financial Considerations

17.  All costs associated with implementing the stormwater and sewer connection as well as the easement will be met by the applicant.

(b)   a version of the name “John Brian Hughes”; or

(c)   an alternate name from the Reserved Street Name List, attached as Appendix 2 to the report; or

(iv) approves an 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

b)   Pūkeko (Pākura) – “There have been large colonies of Pūkeko all along the Parkway and extension area for as many years. Over time these birds have been pushed further and further back from their habitats with the surrounding buildings and road works. With still some bush on the upper slopes, it is hoped some bird life still exists and it would be appropriate to remember them and make the area a pleasant-sounding place.” Originated as a suggestion for the Parkway Extension street naming.

6.    Following consultation with Council’s Principal Māori Advisor, the initially suggested Pūkeko Place was changed to Pākura Place/ Te Ara o Pākura as a more commonly accepted term for the swamp hen by Taranaki Whānui is Pākura.
