Heritage Manager's report


File No.: CP2018/14604


Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To update the Panel on a range of issues.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

Plan Change 7.

2.       The Council has proposed through Plan Change 7 the inclusion of a number of sites and areas within the heritage schedules of the Unitary Plan. One of those areas was the commercial area of Waiuku. It was proposed as a new Historic Heritage Area.

3.       The landowners/business community raised economic impact issues and they have put in submissions accordingly. Officers have also been to a number of public meetings and discussed the matter with the local board.

4.       As a result of the submissions and the discussion officers commissioned some economic analysis to inform the hearings process. The economic analysis confirms for a variety of reasons that placing a Historic Heritage Area over the Waiuku commercial area will have economic impacts that will potentially cause viability issues for the main street. The analysis stresses that the economic impact is due to unique circumstances that Waiuku finds itself in and is not a precedent for other areas.

5.       As a result of this evidence Council’s planner could not support this part of the plan change. Under the delegated authority, officers have withdrawn that part of plan Change 7 that relates to Waiuku.

6.       What staff are proposing to do with the support of the local board is to consider the issue in the context of a larger town centre planning exercise.

7.       This will be a useful issue for the Panel to discuss and when all the information is available it will be included on a future agenda.

8.       Plan Change 7. Hearings are set down for 27, 28th September and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd October.

Changes to the RMA

9.       Section 95A of the RMA was replaced, as from 18 October 2017, by s 137 of the Resource Legislation Amendment Act 2017. The new section 95A now provides that public notification is precluded in certain circumstances. Resource consent applications for a “residential activity” as defined in section 95A (6) with restricted discretionary or discretionary status, are precluded from public notification.

10.     This affects Council’s ability to publicly notify applications in the special character and historic heritage areas as most of the buildings are residential. It also affects the notification for residential heritage scheduled buildings. Special circumstances or limited notification are still available.

Heritage Budget

11.     2018/19 budgets are now available. There is little change in the Heritage opex budget.

12.     There has been no increase in the Heritage grants budget and the Heritage Acquisition Fund budget as per the table below:























13.     A Capex fund of $6million over 3-4 years for Council owned heritage assets has been included within the Heritage budget as per the Panel’s submission.


Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Heritage Advisory Panel:

a)      receive the Heritage Manger’s report.
