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:

(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.

Public Comment

 

Speaking under public comment, Quentin Duthie spoke on an item not on the agenda that fell within the Board’s Terms of Reference.

·           Council had adopted an Integrated Transport Strategy, which would set the direction for a more integrated and sustainable transport network.

 

·           He would continue to seek certainty from Health New Zealand on the level of health services it would provide while Hutt Hospital was undergoing earthquake strengthening.

 

·           Council was a finalist for the Local Government New Zealand Excellence awards in the wellbeing category for the Kai Collective. Mayor Barry said this was a testament to the mahi of Pataka Kai and Kōkiri Marae who formed part of Kai Collective.

4.      Presentation

 

Update from the Waiu Park Charitable Trust

Simon Gilbert, David Ravenarch  and Peter Fraser, representatives of the Waiu Park Charitable Trust (the Trust) provided an update on plans for community owned recreational facilities at Waiu Park. Simon Gilbert advised he had been running a mountain biking programme at the park for the past three years. He wanted to develop facilities to encourage more young people to try mountain biking. He noted the park had the potential to draw more people from the Wellington region if the added facilities were in place.

In response to questions from members, Simon Gilbert said the Trust was seeking a discussion with the relevant Council officers to progress the project. He envisaged his bike shop would provide a different service from the bike shop in Wainuiomata and would not create competition.

In response to questions from members, David Ravenarch  explained the Trust’s plans included a café and bike hire and repair shop with an area to run programmes from. He said the Trust would build the facility from three 40ft containers and would include an outside sheltered area. He added it would use removable foundation footings and would connect to stormwater.  He did not consider a potential cleanfill near the area would be likely to impact the bike facility.

The Chair suggested Council officers meet with members of the Waiu Park Charitable Trust to discuss the development of community owned recreational infrastructure at Waiu Park.

5.       CONFLICT OF INTEREST DECLARATIONS  

There were no conflict of interest declarations.

6.       Minutes

Resolved: (Mr Tupou/Mr Stallworth)                                 Minute No. WCB 22303

“That the minutes of the meeting of the Wainuiomata Community Board held on Wednesday, 13 April 2022, be confirmed as a true and correct record.”

 

7.       Reports referred for Board input before being considered by Subcommittee of Council

a)

Arakura Local Area Traffic Management (22/1338)

Report No. WCB2022/3/109 by the Traffic Engineer

 

Speaking under public comment, Isla Barclay and Chey Burgess, students from Arakura School, expressed support for Council’s Arakura Local Traffic Management Plan. They advised cars exceeded the speed limit in the area and parked on broken yellow lines outside Arakura school. They said they did not feel safe undertaking road patrol duties and travelling to and from school. They supported the installation of speed cushions in Arakura.

 

The Traffic Engineering Manager elaborated on the report. He explained that if Council approved the traffic management changes, contractors would install some of the speed cushions in August 2022. He added officers would monitor the speed cushions for three months before deciding whether to install more.

 

In response to questions from members, the Traffic Engineering Manager agreed to monitor the impacts of traffic management changes on Westminster Road and Wellington Road. He further agreed to optimise the locations of speed cushions if needed. He undertook to investigate if there was a need for speed cushions on Pencarrow Crescent.

 

Resolved: (Mr Tupou/Cr Brown)                               Minute No. WCB 22304

“That the Board endorses the recommendations contained in the report.”

For the reasons that reducing the likelihood of unnecessary speeding, improving safety for all street users, encouraging sustainable travel mode choices (ie cyclists and pedestrians), reducing traffic volumes, especially heavy vehicles, and providing an improved streetscape amenity.

The meeting adjourned at 7.51pm and reconvened at 8.03pm.

b)

Traffic Resolutions - Route 160 Bus Stop Configuration Review (22/1353)

Report No. WCB2022/3/110 by the Traffic Engineering Manager

 

The Traffic Engineering Manager elaborated on the report.

In response to a question from a member, the Traffic Engineering Manager confirmed officers had considered the bus stop configuration improvements in Wainuiomata using the same standards as other bus stops in Lower Hutt.

 

Resolved: (Mr Tupou/Ms McKinley)                         Minute No. WCB 22305

“That the Board endorses the recommendations contained in the report.”

For the reasons that the proposed bus stop layout changes will ensure that the bus box is of sufficient length to accommodate buses; no stopping restrictions will prevent other vehicles from blocking full access to the bus stop; and passengers will be able to board and alight safely and easily.

 

c)

Wainuiomata Town Centre Upgrade - P10, P120 and Mobility Parking Restriction (22/1524)

Report No. WCB2022/3/129 by the Traffic Engineer

 

The Director Economy and Development and the Placemaking Advisor elaborated on the report.

 

In response to questions from members, the Head of Transport agreed to report back on how Council would monitor restricted parking times. He further agreed to consider a non-restricted parking area behind the community centre for volunteers.

 

The Placemaking Advisor agreed to a period of parking enforcement on disability car parking when construction was completed to improve parking habits.

Members agreed to the recommendations, noting officers would change the time restrictions from ‘8am – 6pm’ to ‘at all times’ in their report to the Traffic Subcommittee.

 

Resolved: (Mr Tupou/Mr Sue)                                   Minute No. WCB 22306

“That the Board:

(1)          endorses recommendations (1), (2), (5) and (6) contained in the report; and

 

(2)          asks Council to consider the following amended recommendations:

 

(a)     approves the installation of 63 P120 time limited car parks (at all times) Monday to Sunday (excluding Public Holidays); and

(b)  approves the installation of four P10 time restricted car parks (at all times) (excluding Public Holidays).”

Wainuiomata Community Board
Community Engagement Fund - Round 2
2021-2022
(22/1340)

Report No. WCB2022/3/108 by the Community Advisor Funding and Community Contracts

 

Speaking under public comment, Tracey Mansfield and Richard Nixon, representatives of the Wainuiomata Community Patrol (WCP) explained the work of the WCP and advised it was applying for assistance to purchase equipment. They added this included new torches, a barbeque and other supplies. They advised they had limited sponsors to rely on and COVID had limited fundraising opportunities. They believed the work of WCP volunteers gave residents peace of mind.

 

In response to questions from members, Tracey Mansfield said the purchase of a vehicle would use all the current funds of the WCP. She added the WCP struggled to afford fuel, repairs and maintenance for a vehicle. She acknowledged the contribution from Council but said the WCP required extra funding to do its work. She highlighted Wainuiomata did not have large businesses that could afford to provide sponsorship.

 

Speaking under public comment, Jeremy Yule, a representative of Acting Out (the group), said the group’s application for funding would allow them to build a stage and sets for their latest production. He explained the group tried to repurpose all materials but had to move its location this year due to renovations at Wainuiomata High School. He said the group taught children theatre skills and helped them to be confident. He added show productions cost many thousands of dollars. He advised the group fundraised all year round.

 

In response to a question from a member, Jeremy Yule said if the group could not fundraise enough it would take a loss and hope to recoup it the following year.

 

 

Speaking under public comment Stu Forrest and Merv Johnson, representatives of Wainuiomata Community Garden Group Projects (the group), explained the range of community gardening work that the group had undertaken since 2013 in Wainuiomata. They said Council had given the group the use of some land for a community garden in Wainuiomata. They added people could adopt a garden bed, form social connections and get advice on gardening.  They advised the group needed equipment and resources to continue its work.

 

 

Resolved: (Mr Tupou/Ms McKinley)                                   Minute No. WCB 22307

“That the Board:

(1)     notes the Board Delegations, Guidelines and Criteria 2020-2023 for the Community Engagement Fund on the first pages of the agenda;

(2)     notes that this is the second round of funding through the Community Engagement Fund 2021-2022 for the Wainuiomata Ward;

(3)     notes the Community Engagement Fund closed on Wednesday 1 June 2022 and four applications had been received;

(4)     approves the application from the Wainuiomata Community Garden Group for $2,200.00 for the purchase of seeds, seedlings, compost, fertiliser, sprays, weedeater and for the appropriate maintenance equipment and products;

(5)      approves the application from Acting Out NZ Incorporated for $1,727.50 for the purchase of sound equipment and stage materials;

(6)      approves the application from the Wainuiomata Community Patrol for $2,679.50 for the purchase of new uniforms, equipment for the car and a BBQ for sausage sizzle fundraisers;

(7)     agrees that the applications received under the Community Engagement Fund were considered according to the merits of the application criteria and priorities of the fund; and

(8)     agrees that the organisations granted funding will be required to attend a meeting of the Wainuiomata Community Board once the project has been completed.”

CONFIRMED as a true and correct record

Dated this 24th day of August 2022


 

Wainuiomata Community Board Chair’s Report

 

Wednesday 22 June 2022

 

Tēnā koutou katoa,

 

We can now meet in person, which I am sure the community will appreciate, as members of the public like to attend meetings and have the opportunity to speak to items of interest under ‘Public Comment.’  

 

Te Ara Raukura

Keri, Dawn, Jodie and myself attended the blessing for Te Ara Raukura on Wednesday 8 June. The community are pleased that the new road is now open with traffic flowing from both the northern and southern end of the valley into our Town Centre, which is buzzing. It is also fitting that the Raukura being a symbol of peace is acknowledged alongside Queen Street on Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubillee (70 years as Monarch) and at the commencement of Matariki – our inaugural public holiday of the Māori New Year.

 

Wainuiomata Town Centre Streetscape

The community can see visible progress being made by contractors. In speaking with one of the workers on the ground, it is possible that the Fitzherbert end of the development (on the shop side) may be complete over the next two weeks. An elderly gentleman slipped on a temporary footpath ramp – this has been brought to the attention of the contractor and will be addressed hopefully within the next day or so.

 

Traffic Management Update for Wainuiomata

In my last report, I advised that the Traffic Management review would be undertaken in the Arakura, Parkway, Fitzherbert, Fernlea and Pukeatua areas. Please note that the current review being carried out is for Arakura – the other areas will follow in time. We appreciate the Traffic team following up on some consultation, including letter drops to residents who missed out and the extension of the survey, which the Board commissioned.

 

Disabled Carparks in Queen Street

It is important that locals with disabilities or accessibility challenges can access our businesses and services. So I am sure the request for two additional carparks in Queen Street will be welcome by many.

Proposed New Private Name: 221 Wise Street, Wainuiomata

 

Purpose of Report

1.    The purpose of this report is to seek approval for an appropriate street name for one private road for the subdivision at 221 Wise Street, Wainuiomata.

Recommendations

That the Board:

(1)   approves a new street name for a new private road (Road 2) shown in Appendix 1 to the report, as suggested below:

 

(a)   “Te Kakapi” recommended road type “Te Ara o”;

(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;

(2)   approves an appropriate back up road name if option (c) is selected; and

(3)   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

2.    The subdivision of 221 Wise Street, Wainuiomata creates one new private road within the development and seven new dwellings gaining access from Wise Street.

3.    This report seeks to confirm one new private road name.

4.    The responsibility for naming new private roads within Lower Hutt lies with the Community Boards, or the Infrastructure and Regulatory Committee for areas of the city not represented by Community Boards. In this case, it lies with the Wainuiomata Community Board.

 

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

Discussion

6.    Council’s Kaitātari Tumuaki Māori is advising the use of Te Kakapi after thorough consultation with Mana Whenua, in accordance with Council’s current Naming Policy process. No other names have been mandated for use by Mana Whenua on this project, therefore no further naming suggestions have been submitted to the Board at this time.

a)         Te Kakapi - This name is connected to the narrative of Te Wharepōuri and his connection to Wainuiomata after the battle at Tauwharerata, the village of Te Wharepōuri near modern day Featherston.

 

After a surprise attack on Tauwharerata by Nuku-Pewapewa of Ngāti Kahungunu, the wife and niece of Te Wharepōuri, Te Uamairangi & Te Kakapi, were both captured by Ngāti Kahungunu in this skirmish and taken back to Nukutaurua. Te Wharepōuri, who was able to escape capture, fled back to Te Whanganui a Tara. While running the traditional forest trail that crosses west / east along the headwaters of the Ōrongorongo and Wainuiomata catchments, Te Wharepōuri was distraught, grieving and crying for what he thought would be the certain death of his wife and niece. Other whanaunga travelling with him likened the great tears (wai nui) streaming down his face (mata) to the Wainuiomata catchment.

 

Te Uamairangi was eventually released soon after and allowed to return to Te Whanganui a Tara, but Te Kakapi was taken back to Māhia by Nuku Pewapewa. Te Wharepōuri was elated when his wife returned which motivated him to seek peace with Nuku Pewapewa and Ngāti Kahungunu, and to negotiate the return of Te Kakapi.

Proposed New Private Name: 246 Wise Street, Wainuiomata

 

Purpose of Report

1.    The purpose of this report is to seek approval for an appropriate street name for one private road of the subdivision at 246 Wise Street, Wainuiomata

Recommendations

That the Board:

(1)   approves a new street name for a new private road (Road 1) shown in Appendix 1 to the report, as suggested below:

(a)   “Te Uamairangi” recommended road type “Te Ara o”;

(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;

(2)   approves an appropriate back up road name if option (c) is selected; and

(3)   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

2.    The subdivision of 246 Wise Street Wainuiomata, creates one new road within the development and 41 new dwellings gaining access from Wise Street.

3.    This report seeks to confirm one new private road name. 

4.    The responsibility for naming new private roads within Lower Hutt lies with the Community Boards, or the Infrastructure and Regulatory Committee for areas of the city not represented by Community Boards. In this case it lies with the Wainuiomata Community Board.

 

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

Discussion

6.    Council’s Kaitātari Tumuaki Māori is advising the use of Te Uamairangi after thorough consultation with Mana Whenua, in accordance with Council’s current Naming Policy process. No other names have been mandated for use by Mana Whenua on this project, therefore no further naming suggestions have been submitted to the Board at this time.

a)            Te Uamairangi - This name is connected to the narrative of Te Wharepōuri and his connection to Wainuiomata after the battle at Tauwharerata, the village of Te Wharepōuri near modern day Featherston.

After a surprise attack on Tauwharerata by Nuku-Pewapewa of Ngāti Kahungunu, the wife and niece of Te Wharepōuri, Te Uamairangi & Te Kakapi, were both captured by Ngāti Kahungunu in this skirmish and taken back to Nukutaurua. Te Wharepōuri, who was able to escape capture, fled back to Te Whanganui a Tara. While running the traditional forest trail that crosses west / east along the headwaters of the Ōrongorongo and Wainuiomata catchments, Te Wharepōuri was distraught, grieving and crying for what he thought would be the certain death of his wife and niece. Other whanaunga travelling with him likened the great tears (wai nui) streaming down his face (mata) to the Wainuiomata catchment.

 

Te Uamairangi was eventually released soon after and allowed to return to Te Whanganui a Tara, but Te Kakapi was taken back to Māhia by Nuku Pewapewa. Te Wharepōuri was elated when his wife returned which motivated him to seek peace with Nuku Pewapewa and Ngāti Kahungunu, and to negotiate the return of Te Kakapi.

Democracy Advisor's Report

 

 

 

 

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

 

Recommendation

That the Board notes and receives the report.

 

Consultation and community engagement


Housing Intensification

 

2.  As required by government, Council has approved a draft change to the District Plan for public consultation that will pave the way for higher and denser housing across Lower Hutt. The rules aim to increase housing supply and affordability by loosening current rules on development. While the key parts of changes to the District Plan are mandated, there are some factors that the public can influence.  Feedback on draft changes to the District Plan, known as ‘Plan Change 56’ are invited from 18 August to 20 September 2022: District Plan Change 56 | Hutt City Council

 

RiverLink travel survey

 

3.   RiverLink is seeking feedback on residents’ travel patterns and needs as a transition plan is developed to manage changes during and after RiverLink developments. Flood protection work will reduce the number of car parks available in the Riverbank Carpark and solutions are being considered for those who work in the CBD and other users of the transport network. Go to https://engage.checkboxonline.com/huttcitycbd_travelsurvey2022 by 31 August 2022 to have your say.

 

Naming policy – name submissions

 

4.   Council has developed a new naming policy He Kaupapa Here Tapanga in partnership with Mana Whenua, for roads, open spaces, Council facilities, suburbs, localities, and sub-divisions/developments in Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai Lower Hutt. Input is being sought from the community to put forward names for official approval and these will be added to an ever-evolving naming register, from which all future names will be chosen. A three-month public consultation will soon be launched, in order to give interested parties the opportunity to have their voices heard.

 

Kerbside recycling contamination

 

5.    Kerbside recycling contamination rates for the months of March and April 2022 were 19% for the whole city, above Council’s target, which is less than 10% contamination. Recycling ambassadors have been deployed to inspect bins to collate a more detailed picture of the type and degree of contamination, and to provide immediate feedback to households by way of stickers.

 

Officers are planning a city-wide behaviour change campaign in September 2022. This will focus on increasing awareness of materials appropriate for recycling, reasons for recycling and the environmental impacts. The campaign aims to build better recycling habits amongst Lower Hutt residents. For more information see Council’s 14 July 2022 Climate Change and Sustainability Committee agenda: http://infocouncil.huttcity.govt.nz/Open/2022/07/CCASC_14072022_AGN_3056_AT.PDF

 

Wainuiomata Town Centre Framework and Streetscape Plan update

 

6.    Works continue to take place on both the Streetscape project, and now the Queen Street water main renewal. Both contractors, JFC (Streetscape) and CCL (water main), are working together to align programmes and achieve efficiencies in delivery to mitigate disruption.

 

The watermain works are currently programmed for completion in mid-November, and the project team continue to ensure impacts to the community and to businesses are minimised. A focus on maximising available car parking at all times is a key means to achieve this outcome.

 

Footpath and road upgrades are currently programmed for completion by Christmas, now that the water main renewal is part of the scope of the project.  The Plaza works will finish in early 2023.

 

Update from the previous meeting on 22 June 2022

 

7.    At the Board’s meeting on 22 June 2022, officers agreed to the following:

 

·    To investigate if there was a need for speed cushions on Pencarrow Crescent.

 

·    To report back on how Council would monitor restricted parking times after the Wainuiomata Town Centre upgrade.

 

Responses are as follows:

 

·    Officers are collecting data on Pencarrow Cresent and will review the data at the end of August 2022.

 

·    Currently Council’s parking enforcement practice is Monday to Saturday 8 am to 5 pm, after these hours if a complaint is made to Council, our afterhours contractor will deal with it.
