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 city-wide implications, ie any effects of the decision cross a ward or community boundary or have consequences for the city as a whole, the matter will be decided by Council after seeking a recommendation from the relevant Community Board or (any ambiguity around the interpretation of “city-wide” will be determined by the Mayor and Chief Executive in consultation with the relevant 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 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.

These delegations:

(a)         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;

(b)         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;

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

(d)         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;

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

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

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

Presentation by Local Councillor from Greater Wellington Regional Council

Cr van Lier from Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) provided an update as follows:

·           A feasibility study was completed at the end of 2021 for an eco-sanctuary with a predator proof fence behind Wainuiomata. The results of the study would be publicly released soon. The area held a significant expanse of conservation forest and would provide benefits for a range of species. There was a possibility of funding from GWRC ‘s 2022-2023 budget.  

 

·           GWRC rates for the 2022-23 year were expected to follow the GWRC Long Term Plan forecast with an average increase of $80 per year. Some increases would be targeted.

 

·           A plan to provide free bus fares in March 2022 had been postponed due to the risk of Omicron. Free bus fares would be rolled out at a future date with buses linking to events in the region. 

 

·           The Airport Flyer service was on schedule to commence by 1 July 2022 between Wellington Airport and Wellington Railway Station. It would be integrated with GWRC’s wider public transport system and would incorporate the use of Snapper cards.

 

·           An integrated ticketing system for public transport in the region would be delayed until the end of 2024. Snapper card trials on the Johnsonville train line were a success and the trial was likely to be expanded.

 

·           The public transport fare structure was being reviewed and consultation would take place in May or June 2022. GWRC would be looking at incorporating flat rates, reduced zones, capped fares, family passes and event passes. They were also considering expanding concessions to Community Service Card holders.

 

In response to questions from members, Cr van Lier advised that although the eco-sanctuary would be closed to the public, it could be open for educational outreach by schools and groups. He noted there would be wider ecological benefits for Wainuiomata with more bird life and green spaces. He said the sanctuary could not go ahead without funding from the Department of Conservation.  He noted government was supportive of the initiative. He added that GWRC’s work supporting endangered species would continue even if no funding was available for the eco-sanctuary.

5.       CONFLICT OF INTEREST DECLARATIONS

There were no conflict of interest declarations.

CONFIRMED as a true and correct record

Dated this 13th day of April 2022


Mayoral Address

 

Kia ora tatou,  

 

Firstly, welcome back, I hope you have all had a refreshing summer break and are feeling energised as we get back into work for 2022!    This year we will be heavily focusing on delivering our Long Term Plan. As you know, over the next ten years Council will invest $1.5 billion in projects that aim to build strong foundations for the future of our city.    In particular, we are addressing issues within our Three Waters network and transport infrastructure, both of which continue to affect the communities you represent.  

 

If we want to build a city where everyone can thrive, we need to get the basics right – and that starts with ensuring our water is safe to drink, our systems handling storm events, and our infrastructure having the capacity to support the growth we’re experiencing.  And it also means building and improving a transport system that makes it easier for everyone to get around our city. Whether it be on public transport, on bikes, walking, or in private vehicles, we are determined to address the causes of congestion so all modes can move around Lower Hutt efficiently.  

 

Wainuiomata  

 

In Wainuiomata, work will continue to repair and replace leaky pipes and solve cross-contamination issues to improve our waterways.  We’re also progressing our ambitious plan to refresh and rejuvenate the heart of Wainuiomata. This involves investing $5.5 million into the Queen St redevelopment in 2022, so that we can bring some life back to our town centre. Recently we announced our lead contractor, and work will be starting soon once designs are finalised.  

 

I’ve been seeing and hearing some concern around the loss of parking spaces along Queen St. It’s important to note that there are still some design changes to come, so we don’t have a final number yet for net parking spaces changes.  However, the Countdown redevelopment saw a significant increase in parking spaces – up to 235 now.   Ultimately, we want Queen St to be a space for people and revitalising the area to cater for this will be hugely beneficial for local businesses.  

 

COVID-19 

2022 is shaping up to be another busy year, and it’s fair to say COVID-19 is going to continue to play a part.   I urge you all to encourage members of your community to get boosted, or vaccinated if they haven’t started that journey yet, and continue to scan into places they visit.  

With omicron being the dominant variant in New Zealand now, cases are sure to rise. We need to do everything we can to prevent the spread, but in the case that it does, we need to be equipped to track and deal with outbreaks.  And encourage your communities to be prepared for self-isolation. Every family, big or small, needs to have a plan for how they can be supported in the event that a member has to self-isolate.  

 

Conclusion  

 

While 2022 will include a number of challenges, I’m confident that this year will also be full of amazing opportunities.  The work we’re doing together in Lower Hutt – getting the basics right to build the foundations needed for our future – will bring our communities closer together, and I’m excited to see what we will collectively achieve this year.

Report no: WCB2022/2/61

 

Democracy Advisor's Report

 

 

 

 

1.    The purpose of the report is to update the Board on items of interest.

 

Recommendations

That the Board:

 

(1)   receives the report;

 

(2)   notes the Kaupapa Here Tapanga - Naming Policy 2022-2027 attached as Appendix 1 to the report; and

(3)   notes the amendment to the Community Boards - Functions and Delegations as approved by Council on 23 March 2022 attached as Appendix 2 to the report.

 

Consultation and community engagement

 

Integrated Transport Strategy

2.    A draft Integrated Transport Strategy has been developed that sets out Council’s vision and roadmap for the future of Lower Hutt’s transport network.  The Strategy will support future-focused decision making for integrated transport that improves everyone’s experience and options. Focus areas include optimising the transport and land-use system to minimise demand, supporting travel behaviour change, making it easier to use public transport and improving transport infrastructure. Consultation began on 30 March and ends 12 April 2022: https://haveyoursay.huttcity.govt.nz/integrated-transport-strategy.



 

 

 

District Plan Housing Intensification

 

3.    Public consultation will commence in late March 2022 on parts of Lower Hutt’s District Plan affected by new legislation requiring councils to allow higher and denser housing construction. This legislation forces a change to Council’s work on the District Plan review that was already underway. Public consultation on the changes opened on 30 March and runs until 29 April 2022. Council’s District Plan Review Subcommittee will consider any further changes following consultation, and a proposed change to affected parts of the District Plan will then be released for public consultation in August 2022. https://haveyoursay.huttcity.govt.nz/dp-intensification

 

Three waters

 

4.    The Government is proposing reforms to how three waters services are delivered across New Zealand. Although this is a Government process and Council has limited influence over the outcome, Council is preparing to engage residents on their thoughts about water and the proposed reforms. An online survey was available from 24 March to 7 April 2022, alongside information about what the proposals mean for Lower Hutt. The results of this survey will be used to inform Council’s submission to the Environment Select Committee once the reform legislation is introduced to Parliament later this year. This information can still be viewed on Council’s website:

Three Waters Reform | Have your say - Hutt City Council

 

Electric Vehicle Parking

 

5.    Council is installing additional EV charging stations across Lower Hutt at proposed locations in Stokes Valley, Taita, Avalon Park, Moera and Wainuiomata. The opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed locations closed on 31 March 2022 but information is still available at https://haveyoursay.huttcity.govt.nz/ev-chargers

 

 

 

Lower Hutt Climate Action Pathway

 

6.    The Lower Hutt community, through a co-design process led by a group of community representatives, has developed the Lower Hutt Climate Action Pathway Te Ara Whakamua o Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai. It sets out the pathway for our city to achieve our zero emissions target and prepare for the impacts of a changing climate. Actions to reduce emissions include switching to electric vehicles and shifting to alternative modes of transport, moving away from fossil fuels to heat homes, and reducing waste: Te Ara Whakamua o Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai – Lower Hutt Climate Action Pathway (hccpublicdocs.azurewebsites.net)

 

 

Young Elected Members Hui 2021/22

 

7.    The Young Elected Members’ Hui that was postponed in October 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions will no longer take place in 2022.

 

 

 

 

Kaupapa Here Tapanga | Naming Policy 2022-2027

 

8.    Council at its meeting held on 23 March 2022 adopted the Kaupapa Here Tapanga - Naming Policy 2022-2027 attached as Appendix 1 to the report.  At the same meeting, Council agreed to amend the community boards’ delegations as highlighted in red wording (attached as Appendix 2 to the report) to reflect that the naming of new roads and alterations to street names will be in accordance with the Kaupapa Here Tapanga - Naming Policy 2022-2027. 

 

2021/22 Administration and Training Budget

1.    The purpose of this memorandum is to provide information to members regarding public consultation on the Local Area Traffic Management scheme in the Arakura area.

Background

2.    Members of the local community raised concerns in relation to vehicle operating speeds and anti-social driving behaviour resulting in safety issues in the vicinity of the Arakura residential area, Wainuiomata.

3.    In addition, there are a number of major residential developments in the Arakura area that will cause travel demand to grow at a rapid rate, resulting in greater safety issues caused by speed and high traffic volumes.

4.    Council officers have investigated the speed and historical crash data with the evidence confirming that ‘traffic calming’ measures are required in the Arakura residential area from a network wide approach.

5.    The ‘traffic calming’ measures are proposed to be implemented following the Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) scheme, which introduces a series of traffic controlling devices (such as speed humps, cushions and / or chicanes) to encourage a safer residential environment.

6.    The installation of the LATM scheme is expected to alleviate the residential street environment by:

a.    reducing the likelihood of unnecessary speeding,

b.    improving safety for all street users, encouraging sustainable travel mode choices (ie cyclists and pedestrians),

c.     reducing traffic volumes, especially heavy vehicles, and

d.    providing a better-looking streetscape.

7.    It should also be recognised that the LATM scheme, similar to all other treatments, will not be the ‘perfect’ solution; there will be associated trade-offs sometimes such as:

a.    Inconvenience / discomfort to public transport patrons;

b.    Increased travel time, especially for emergency and service vehicles;

c.     Loss of on-street parking adjacent to the controls; and

d.    Increased noise due to braking and acceleration of vehicles.

8.    The LATM scheme design has been completed taking into consideration the above trade-offs.  The design aims to both maximise benefits to the community and minimise the level of compromise experienced by local residents.

9.    The following diagram illustrates the proposed LATM speed cushion treatment locations, and the detailed design drawings can be found in Appendices 1-3 to the memorandum.

10.  Following Council’s LATM Scheme Implementation guidelines (see flowchart below), officers would like to notify the Board that the proposed scheme is now under public consultation via an online platform. Opportunities for comments and feedback will close on Friday 29 April 2022.

11.  The design will be modified (if required) to include outcomes from the consultation.

12.  The construction of the Arakura LATM is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
