Exclusion of the public – who needs to leave the meeting

All members of the public must leave the meeting when the public are excluded unless a resolution is passed permitting a person to remain because their knowledge will assist the meeting.

 

Those who are not members of the public

 

General principles

 

·           Access to confidential information is managed on a “need to know” basis where access to the information is required in order for a person to perform their role.

·           Those who are not members of the meeting (see list below) must leave unless it is necessary for them to remain and hear the debate in order to perform their role.

·           Those who need to be present for one confidential item can remain only for that item and must leave the room for any other confidential items.

·           In any case of doubt, the ruling of the chairperson is final.

 

Members of the meeting

 

·           The members of the meeting remain (all Governing Body members if the meeting is a Governing Body meeting; all members of the committee if the meeting is a committee meeting).

·           However, standing orders require that a councillor who has a pecuniary conflict of interest leave the room.

·           All councillors have the right to attend any meeting of a committee and councillors who are not members of a committee may remain, subject to any limitations in standing orders.

 

Independent Māori Statutory Board

 

·           Members of the Independent Māori Statutory Board who are appointed members of the committee remain.

·           Independent Māori Statutory Board members and staff remain if this is necessary in order for them to perform their role.

 

Staff

 

·           All staff supporting the meeting (administrative, senior management) remain.

·           Other staff who need to because of their role may remain.

 

Local Board members

 

·           Local Board members who need to hear the matter being discussed in order to perform their role may remain.  This will usually be if the matter affects, or is relevant to, a particular Local Board area.

 

Council Controlled Organisations

 

·           Representatives of a Council Controlled Organisation can remain only if required to for discussion of a matter relevant to the Council Controlled Organisation.

File No.: CP2016/13070

 

Purpose

1.       To provide the committee with the following information relating to Transport, Infrastructure, Natural Hazards and Flooding.

a)      The relevant provisions in the notified version of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan (PAUP);

b)      The key themes raised in submissions; and

c)      The council’s position at the hearings.

Executive summary

2.       Between September 2015 and May 2016, the council presented its position in response to submissions on the PAUP to the Independent Hearings Panel (the Panel). The hearings were completed on May 13 2016 and the Panel’s recommendations are due to be received by the council on 22 July 2016. As outlined in detail in the report presented to the committee on 13 April 2016, the council is required to notify its decisions in response to the Panel’s recommendations on 19 August 2016.  

3.       This report is the last in a series that has provided the committee with background information on a range of key topics. This report provides information relating to Transport, Infrastructure, Natural Hazards and Flooding.

Recommendation/s

This report does not contain any recommendations.

5.       Refinements to the Transport provisions in the PAUP were agreed to by the delegated members of the Unitary Plan committee.

6.       Background information relating to the relevant provisions in the notified version of the PAUP, key themes raised in submissions, interim guidance from the Panel and the council’s position at the hearings will be provided at the meeting in the form of PowerPoint presentations.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

7.       All local board chairs are invited to attend the Auckland Development Committee meeting.

Māori impact statement

8.       The PAUP is of considerable interest to Auckland’s Mana Whenua. A number of the topics that will be presented to the committee at the Auckland Development Committee information meetings between April and July 2016 are of high interest to Mana Whenua, and indeed the wider Māori community.  However, as the council will not be making any decisions at the information meetings, the report itself does not have any impact on Māori.
