Terms of Reference

 

Responsibilities

 

This committee guides the physical development and growth of Auckland through a focus on land use, transport and infrastructure strategies and policies relating to planning, growth, housing and the appropriate provision of enabling infrastructure, as well as programmes and strategic projects associated with these activities. The committee will establish an annual work programme outlining key focus areas in line with its key responsibilities, which include:

 

·         relevant regional strategy and policy

·         transportation

·         infrastructure strategy and policy

·         Unitary Plan, including plan changes (but not any wholesale review of the Plan)

·         Resource Management Act and relevant urban planning legislation framework

·         oversight of Council’s involvement in central government strategies, plans or initiatives that impact on Auckland’s future land use and infrastructure

·         Auckland Plan implementation reporting on priorities and performance measures

·         structure plans and spatial plans

·         housing policy and projects

·         city centre and waterfront development

·         regeneration and redevelopment programmes

·         built and cultural heritage, including public art

·         urban design

·         acquisition of property relating to the committee’s responsibilities and in accordance with the Long-term Plan

·         working with and receiving advice from the Heritage Advisory Panel, the Rural Advisory Panel and the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board to give visibility to the issues important to the communities they represent and to help effect change.

 

Powers

 

(i)      All powers necessary to perform the committee’s responsibilities, including:

(a)     approval of a submission to an external body

(b)     establishment of working parties or steering groups.

(ii)      The committee has the powers to perform the responsibilities of another committee, where it is necessary to make a decision prior to the next meeting of that other committee.

(iii)     If a policy or project relates primarily to the responsibilities of the Planning Committee, but aspects require additional decisions by the Environment and Climate Change Committee and/or the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee, then the Planning Committee has the powers to make associated decisions on behalf of those other committee(s). For the avoidance of doubt, this means that matters do not need to be taken to more than one of those committees for decisions.

(iii)     The committee does not have:

(a)     the power to establish subcommittees

(b)     powers that the Governing Body cannot delegate or has retained to itself (section 2).

 

 

 


 

Auckland Plan Values

 

The Auckland Plan 2050 outlines a future that all Aucklanders can aspire to. The values of the Auckland Plan 2050 help us to understand what is important in that future:

 

 


 

 

Exclusion of the public – who needs to leave the meeting

 

Members of the public

 

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.

Resource management system reform: submission development

File No.: CP2019/19514

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive an update on the Resource Management Review Panel’s Issues and Options paper (November 2019), and to establish a political working group to provide direction for staff for submission development and to approve the final submission. 

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Government is undertaking a comprehensive review of the resource management system, with a particular focus on the Resource Management Act 1991. 

3.       The Resource Management Review Panel is leading the review and has just released its Issues and Options paper. Submissions on the paper close on 3 February 2020. 

4.       In mid-2020, the panel will report back to the Environment Minister with its recommendations on reforming the Resource Management Act. 

5.       Given the nature and extent of Auckland Council’s roles and responsibilities under the existing Resource Management Act, reform of the system is likely to have impacts on a number of Council’s decisions, activities and operations. 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Planning Committee:

a)      appoint a political working group comprised of the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Planning Committee, a member of the Planning Committee, three Local Board members, and one member of the Independent Māori Statutory Board to work with staff on developing and finalising council’s submission on the Resource Management Review Panel’s Issues and Options paper.

b)      delegate authority to the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Planning Committee and an Independent Māori Statutory Board member of the political working group to approve council’s submission on the Resource Management Review Panel’s Issues and Options paper.

c)      note there will be a further opportunity for council to submit on resource management reform in June 2020 following Cabinet decisions on the Resource Management Review Panel’s final report to government.

 

Horopaki

Context

6.       The Government is undertaking a comprehensive review of the resource management system, with a focus on the Resource Management Act 1991. 

7.       Key drivers of the review are the inability of the current system to respond quickly to urban development pressures, the need to respond to climate change and poor environmental outcomes, particularly in relation to deteriorating freshwater quality and diminishing biodiversity. 

8.       The aim of the review is to “improve environmental outcomes and better enable urban and other development within environmental limits.” The desired outcomes for the review are reduced complexity and costs, better enabling of urban development and improving the protection of the environment.

9.       An appointed Resource Management Review Panel is leading the review.  The panel has just released its issues and options paper, “Transforming the resource management system: opportunities for change”. Submissions on the paper close on 3 February 2020. 

10.     In June 2020 the panel will report back to the Minister for the Environment with its recommendations on reforming the Resource Management Act.  The report will include detailed policy proposals and indicative drafting of legislation for key provisions.  The Government will then consult with iwi/Māori, key stakeholders and the public on its preferred option.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

11.     Given the nature and extent of Auckland Council’s roles and responsibilities under the existing Resource Management Act, reform of the system is likely to have impacts on a number of council’s decisions, activities and operations. 

12.     The potential scope of the reform is broad and there will be an opportunity in June 2020 to submit on more operational elements, following Cabinet’s decisions about its preferred policy options and responses. 

13.     This first submission on the issues and options paper allows us to provide feedback on the reform from a more strategic perspective so we can ensure the overarching architecture of the system is fit for purpose in delivering outcomes Auckland needs.

14.     The scope of the review includes:

·   looking at how the Resource Management Act interfaces with the Local Government Act 2002, Land Transport Management Act 2003 and Climate Change Response Act 2002 (including amendments from the recently passed Zero Carbon Amendment Bill)

·   a fit for purpose check of the objectives and alignment of the Resource Management Act and system more generally

·   how Te Tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori are recognised in the resource management system

·   review of the effectiveness of Resource Management Act functions and processes

·   fit for purpose check in relation to the allocating of roles in the system to various institutions and bodies

·   the role of spatial planning

·   considering the intersections and impacts of related Government work programmes and projects on the resource management system.  Examples include the Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Bill, Urban Growth Agenda, Three Waters Regulation, Productivity Commission Inquiry into Local Government Funding and Financing, and national directions (both existing and those under development).  

15.     There are a number of matters that are currently out of scope and can only be brought into scope with the specific approval of the Minister for the Environment.  These matters include:

·   broader issues with other Acts, such as the Local Government Act and Land Transport Management Act (beyond spatial planning or the interface of these Acts with the Resource Management Act)

·   issues relating to Māori rights and interests in freshwater, including current work looking at how Māori can access freshwater resources

 

 

 

·   existing Treaty of Waitangi settlements (except in relation to how a new resource management system will provide for them)

·   parts of the marine environment (i.e. beyond the 12 nautical mile territorial sea outer limit).

Formation of a political working party

16.     The scale of the review being undertaken means that staff will require political direction during the development of the submission following a proposed elected member workshop on 11 December 2019. The 3 February 2020 deadline means that further direction will be required over December and January. A political working party is seen as the most workable model to provide direction over this period.

17.     It is suggested that, given the interest in and impact from this reform, the working party be comprised of representatives from the Planning Committee, Independent Māori Statutory Board, and Local Boards. Given time constraints and the broad and quite technical nature of the RMA, it would be particularly valuable if representatives had familiarity in resource management matters e.g. were able to act as decision-makers on RMA hearing panels.  Members of the working party would also need to be available over December 2019 and January 2020.

18.     Staff recommend membership of the political working party comprise of the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Planning Committee, a member of the Planning Committee, three local board chairs or members, and one member of the Independent Māori Statutory Board.

19.     The Local Board Chairs forum on Monday 9 December 2019 will consider the approach to deciding membership of political working parties. It is suggested that the local board members of the political working party be decided by the approach agreed to at the Chairs Forum.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

20.     The proposed decisions this report seeks are procedural and do not have any direct impacts on greenhouse gas emissions. Likewise, climate change will not have impacts over the life of this specific decision.

21.     The Review Panel’s Issues and Options paper acknowledges addressing climate change challenges as being a key consideration in future-proofing our resource management system.

22.     The scope of the review includes consideration of how addressing climate change could be given greater emphasis in the resource management system. It also specifically examines the interface of the Resource Management Act with the Climate Change Response Act 2002.  The review is expected to align with existing Government work programmes, including those relating to addressing climate change. 

23.     A reformed resource management system could provide for greater tools which Auckland Council could utilise to reduce emissions and could also ensure that Auckland prepares for and is more adapted to the effects of climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

24.     Relevant council departments and council controlled organisations have been identified and contributions will be sought from them in developing the council group’s response to the Resource Management Review Panel consultation.

25.     As Cabinet makes decisions in mid-June 2020 on its preferred approach to reform, the potential impacts on the council group and activities will become clearer and updates provided at that stage.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

26.     Local board views will be sought during the development of council’s submission and reported back to the Planning Committee. Local board members will also participate as part of the political working party. Local board resolutions will be included verbatim as part of council’s submission. 

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.     The decisions this report seeks do not directly impact on Māori, however both the resource management system review and specific issues covered in the Review Panel’s Issues and Options paper are likely to be of significant interest and potential impact.  For example, reform options canvassed include:

·   consideration of the purpose of the Resource Management Act

·   opportunities for enhanced Māori participation in strategic decision-making about resource management issues through spatial planning processes

·   greater status being given to iwi management plans

·   use of mātauranga Māori in system monitoring and oversight and involvement of Māori in monitoring

·   ensuring the principles of the Treaty and relationship between the Crown and Māori is given due recognition

·   as part of an independent oversight of the resource management system, establishing a National Māori Advisory Board on Planning and the Treaty.

28.     The review also specifically canvasses what changes are required to better reflect te ao Māori and to address Māori interests, and Māori engagement when decisions are made under the Resource Management Act.

29.     In the longer term, reform of the resource management system could potentially create options to improve environmental outcomes from the system, improve outcomes for Māori, and better support mana whenua’s delivery of its functions within the system. 

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

30.     The submission can be developed within existing budget provision and as part of business as usual central government advocacy activity.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

31.     There is little risk in making a submission on the resource management review.  The Issues and Options paper focuses largely on high level issues, which will be developed into more tangible policy responses and legislative changes, with a further opportunity in June-July 2020 to provide feedback on the specific impacts and effects of those policy and legislative proposals. 

32.     As the reform decisions are made and the work programme progresses, staff will provide further information about the potential impacts on council’s activities.


 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

33.     The consultation closes on 3 February 2020. 

34.     The Resource Management Review Panel will continue to engage with stakeholders, iwi/Māori and expert reference groups between now and mid-late March 2020 and continue developing its policy responses until approximately May 2020. 

35.     The panel’s final report will be delivered to the Minister for the Environment by the end of May 2020. Public consultation on the preferred options is planned from June-July 2020.

Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities second Bill - approval process for Auckland Council submission

File No.: CP2019/19546

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To establish a political working group and approval process for Auckland Council’s submission to the second Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill (the first Bill) was introduced to Parliament on 31 May 2019. The Bill established Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities as a new Crown entity on 1 October 2019. The entity has two key functions, being a public landlord and leading and coordinating urban development.

3.       On 2 July 2019 the Planning Committee approved Auckland Council’s submission to the first Bill (PLA/2019/63). A copy of the submission is attached to this report in Attachment A.  Council’s submission supported a number of aspects of the Bill but sought greater recognition of the significant overlaps between the functions of local government and those of the new entity.

4.       The second Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill is proposed to be introduced to Parliament in December 2019. This second Bill will set out the powers that Kāinga Ora-Homes and Communities can assume to enable it to undertake urban development in specified development areas.

5.       At this point in time there is no clarity over timing or duration of the submission period for the second Bill.

6.       The report recommends that the committee establishes a political working group and delegates authority to the Chair, Deputy Chair and an Independent Māori Statutory Board (IMSB) member to approve the final submission in the event the submissions have to be lodged in January / early February 2020.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Planning Committee:

a)      appoint a political working group comprised of the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Planning Committee, a member of the Planning Committee, three Local Board members, and one member of the Independent Māori Statutory Board to work with staff on developing and finalising council’s submission on the second Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill.

b)      delegate authority to the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Planning Committee and an Independent Māori Statutory Board member of the political working group to approve council’s submission on the second Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       The Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill was introduced to Parliament on 31 May 2019. The Bill established Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities as a new Crown entity on 1 October 2019 by:

·   disestablishing Housing New Zealand Corporation (HNZC) and Homes Land Community (HLC)

·   putting HNZC and HLC’s assets into Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities

·   repealing the Housing Corporation Act 1974

·   putting some of the functions and assets related to KiwiBuild that currently sit in the Ministry for Housing and Urban Development into Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities.

8.       The objective of the new entity is to “contribute to sustainable, inclusive and thriving communities that:

a)   provide people with good quality, affordable housing choices that meet diverse needs; and

b)   support good access to jobs, amenities and services; and

c)   otherwise sustain or enhance the overall economic, social, environmental and cultural wellbeing of current and future generations.”

9.       The entity has two key functions; being a public housing landlord and leading and coordinating urban development.

10.     On 2 July 2019 the Planning Committee approved Auckland Council’s submission to the first Bill (PLA/2019/63). A copy of the submission is attached to this report in Attachment A. The submission supported a number of aspects of the Bill but sought much greater recognition of the significant overlaps between the functions of local government and those of the new entity.

11.     Incorporated within the Auckland Council submission was feedback from the following local boards: Albert-Eden, Ōrākei, Puketāpapa, Manurewa, Waiheke, Papakura, Maungakiekie-Tāmaki, Waitematā and Māngere Ōtāhuhu.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     It is understood that a further Bill will be introduced to Parliament in December 2019. This Bill (the second Bill) will set out the powers that Kāinga Ora-Homes and Communities can assume to enable it to undertake urban development in specified development areas.

13.     There is no clarity yet over the timing and duration of the submission period, however it is likely to occur between December 2019 and the first quarter of 2020.

14.     This Bill has the potential to impact across the council group’s policy, planning, finance and operational areas.

15.     Significant interest in the contents of this second Bill has already been signalled by elected members, the Independent Māori Statutory Board, local boards and from across the council and Council Controlled Organisations.

16.     This report seeks the establishment of a political working group to ensure there is appropriate political oversight and decision making on the submission over the coming months. Staff will provide an overview of the provisions of the second Bill once it is introduced to Parliament.


 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

17.     The matters raised in this report do not have any impact on climate change as they address procedural matters relating to the approval process for the Auckland Council submission on the second Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Bill.  The submission itself will consider the impact of the second Bill on climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

18.     Staff worked with Watercare, Auckland Transport, and Panuku in preparing the Auckland Council Submission on the first Bill and will be involved again on the second Bill.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

19.     Incorporated within the Auckland Council submission to the first Bill was feedback from the following local boards: Albert-Eden, Ōrākei, Puketāpapa, Manurewa, Waiheke, Papakura, Maungakiekie-Tāmaki, Waitematā and Māngere Ōtāhuhu.

20.     While the activities of Kāinga Ora-Homes and Communities will have significant local benefits and impacts, the main areas of interest for local communities will be the process by which the entity selects development projects and the specific powers it utilises in different locations. Provisions relating to these matters will be part of the second Bill.

21.     Feedback will be sought from all local boards on the second Bill and incorporated into the Auckland Council submission. A memo is being prepared for local boards once the second Bill is presented to Parliament.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

22.     The activities of the new entity have the potential to provide significant benefits to Māori through provision of public housing, affordable housing and opportunities for Māori to participate in urban development. There is also the risk of impacts, for example on wāhi tapu, sites of significance and wider environmental interests.  It will be important to carefully consider provisions of the second Bill to ensure the appropriate protections are in place.

23.     Staff have worked with Independent Māori Statutory Board staff in preparing the submission to the first Bill and this process will continue for the second Bill. As recommended by this report, representation from the Independent Māori Statutory Board is sought on the political working group.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

24.     The Auckland Council submission to the first Bill raised concerns about how the activities of Kāinga Ora could have financial implications for local government.  Specific concerns included:

·   the need for an explicit provision to clarify that the entity will be liable for development contributions

·   the need for the entity to consider value for money and ‘whole of life costs’ as well as its impact on wider network infrastructure. 

25.     Auckland Council’s Financial Strategy and Planning team will be involved in the development of the submission to the second Bill.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

26.     Advice in relation to the risks and mitigations will be prepared once the contents of the second Bill are available.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

27.     Staff will provide an overview of the provisions and advice once the second Bill is introduced into Parliament, which is understood will happen in December, and will advise on submission timeframes.

28.     The report recommends that a political working group is established and available in January and that the committee delegates authority to the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Planning Committee and an Independent Māori Statutory Board member for approval of the final submission.

Waiheke Area Plan and Aotea Great Barrier Island Area Plan - re-establishment of working parties

File No.: CP2019/19609

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To re-establish the two working parties for both the Waiheke Area Plan and the Aotea Great Barrier Area Plan, following their automatic dissolution after the 2019 local government elections.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In June 2018 the Planning Committee approved a two-stage process to fully incorporate the Hauraki Gulf Islands into the Auckland Unitary Plan.  Stage 1 would see the development of area plans for the Waiheke and Aotea Great Barrier Island local board areas.  In stage 2 the two area plans would inform a plan change to the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) to incorporate the Hauraki Gulf Islands at a district plan level.  The regional planning provisions of the Auckland Unitary Plan already apply. 

3.       Two working parties were also established to oversee the development of the area plans on behalf of the committee.  Each working party was made up of all members of the relevant local board, the ward councillor for Waitematā and Gulf and a representative of the Independent Māori Statutory Board.

4.       It was anticipated stage 1 would be completed by September 2019 within the previous council term.  While stage 1 is now well underway for both area plans, project completion is now anticipated to be around May 2020.  This has taken the project into the new 2020-22 term.  The June 2018 committee resolution did not include a specific resolution for the working parties to continue following the next election.

5.       Council’s Legal and Risk Department advises that under clause 30(7) schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002, the Planning Committee was automatically discharged in late October 2019, on the coming into office of newly elected local authority members.  The two working parties established by the committee to oversee the development of the two area plans on its behalf were therefore also automatically disestablished. 

6.       The new Planning Committee, which has delegated responsibility for the area plans, will need to establish new working parties to enable oversight of this project.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Planning Committee:

a)      approve the re-establishment of two working parties (one for Waiheke and one for Aotea Great Barrier Island local board areas) consisting of members of the relevant local board, the Waitematā and Gulf Ward Councillor and a representative of the Independent Māori Statutory Board, to continue to oversee the preparation of area plans for the Waiheke and Aotea Great Barrier Island local board areas.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Under the Resource Management Act 1991 the Hauraki Gulf Islands section of the Auckland Council District Plan 2013 (Islands Plan) will need to commence its review by 2023.  A direction from the Planning Committee on the review process for the Islands Plan was sought in June 2018.  Currently only the regional provisions of the Auckland Unitary Plan apply to the Hauraki Gulf Islands.  The Islands Plan provisions continue to manage, at a district level, subdivision, use and development. 

8.       The rationale for this exclusion was that at the time the Auckland Unitary Plan was notified in 2013, the Islands Plan had only recently become operative following a lengthy submission and appeal process. The provisions were also seen as being easily able to stand alone and to be incorporated later.

9.       The Planning Committee approved a two-stage approach to incorporate the Hauraki Gulf Islands into the Auckland Unitary Plan.  Stage 1 comprises the development of area plans for Waiheke and Aotea Great Barrier Island local board areas.  Stage 1 is now well underway, with two draft area plans being prepared for upcoming community consultation in early 2020.  In stage 2 the two completed area plans would inform a plan change or plan changes to the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) to incorporate the Hauraki Gulf Islands at a district level.

10.     The committee resolution also established two working parties (one for each local board area) consisting of members of the relevant board, the Waitematā and Gulf Ward Councillor and a representative of the Independent Māori Statutory Board to oversee the preparation of each area plan.  A full copy of the resolution (PLA/2018/63) and the planner’s report are provided in Attachments A and B.

11.     It was anticipated that the stage 1 (area plan) component would be completed by September 2019, within the then local board term. For the past 18 months work has progressed and each working party has overseen the area plan development for their local board area.  It is now anticipated it will take an additional six months, to around May 2020, to complete stage 1, assuming there are no significant changes in direction sought by the working parties. 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

12.     Stage 1 has now extended into the new council term 2020-2022.  The June 2018 committee resolution did not include a specific resolution for the working parties to continue following the 2019 local government elections or until a resolution is made to discharge the working party.  Not having fulfilled its mandate is insufficient reason to retain the current working party or to substitute new members for those who were not elected.

13.     Council’s Legal and Risk Department advises that clause 30(7), schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002 applies in respect of the power to appoint committees.  This clause states:

30           Powers to appoint committees, subcommittees, other subordinate decision-making bodies and joint committees

(7) A committee, subcommittee, or other subordinate decision-making body is, unless the local authority resolves otherwise, deemed to be discharged on the coming into office of the members of the local authority elected or appointed at, or following, the triennial general election of members next after the appointment of the committee, subcommittee, or other subordinate decision-making body


 

14.     Under the Local Government Act, the former Planning Committee was automatically discharged in late October 2019, on the coming into office of newly elected local authority members.  The two working parties established by the committee to oversee the development of an area plan on its behalf also automatically disestablishes.  This means the new committee, which has delegated responsibility for the area plans, will need to establish a new working party.

15.     It is not considered necessary to include a resolution to continue into the next term (2022-25) as stage 1 will be completed by mid-2020.

Climate impact statement

16.     The matters raised in this report do not have any impact on climate change as they address procedural matters relating to the re-establishment of two working parties.  While the two area plans will consider climate change impacts, the content of the area plans is not within the scope of this report.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

17.     The development of the area plans has involved a number of council departments and council-controlled organisations.  These include:

·   Healthy Waters

·   Infrastructure and Environmental Services

·   Community Policy

·   Customer and Community Services

·   Citizen and Customer Engagement

·   Te Waka Anga Mua ki Uta/Māori Strategies and Relations

·   Auckland Transport

·   Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development

·   Watercare Services Ltd.

18.     The views of council departments and council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of this report’s advice, as it is concerned with procedural matters only.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

19.     The Aotea Great Barrier Island Local Board and Waiheke Local Board are both supportive of the re-establishment of the working party governance as they wish to continue progressing the area plans for their respective local board areas.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

20.     The matters raised in this report are procedural.  Engagement with mana whenua will continue during the remaining stages of completing the two area plans.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

21.     Both the Waiheke Area Plan and Aotea Great Barrier Island Area Plan are within the Plans and Places spatial planning programme and can be covered by department budgets for 2019/20. 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

22.     No risks have been identified with the recommendations to re-establish the working party for each area plan. 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

23.     Should the committee agree to re-establish the two working parties, staff will organise a series of meetings and workshops in 2020.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

14.     The Papakura and Manurewa Local Boards were consulted on Plan Change 24 prior to notification.  Both Local Boards supported the plan change.

15.     Local Board views were not sought for this report as making Plan Change 24 operative is a procedural matter

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

16.     The applicant for Plan Change 24 approached the nine mana whenua groups recognised as having an interest in the site, and engaged further with Te Ākitai Waiohua, Ngāti Te Ata and Ngāti Tamaoho.  The primary issues raised by these iwi groups were considered to be relevant to the detailed design submitted through resource consents rather than the proposed rezoning.  No iwi groups submitted on the plan change.

17.     In accordance with Section 34A(1A) of the RMA 1991, council consulted with iwi groups to determine whether a hearing commissioner with tikanga Māori and of the perspectives of local iwi or hapū should be appointed to hear Plan Change 24.  Ngaati Whanaunga and Waikato-Tainui supported such a commissioner, and subsequently a commissioner with tikanga Māori was appointed to the hear Plan Change 24.

Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) - Request to make Plan Changes 14, 15 and 16 operative

File No.: CP2019/19543

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Horopaki

Context

Intent of Plan Changes

11.     Plan changes 14, 15 and 16 all address technical issues that have been identified in the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) (AUP) by plan users and council staff. Changes were required to ensure that the AUP will function in the way that it was intended. The scope of the plan changes limited the amendments to address technical issues only and did not result in any substantive changes to the policy direction of the plan.

12.     The amendments to address technical issues included:

·   amendments to the rules of the AUP to ensure that they give effect to the objectives and policies

·   amendments to the policies where there are rules of the AUP but there is an absence of a policy direction

·   amendments across sections of the plan to achieve consistency of restrictions or assessments and the removal of duplicate controls.

13.     The plan changes are as follows:

·   Plan Change 14 - Improving consistency of provisions in Chapter D Overlays, Chapter E Auckland-wide, Chapter J Definitions, Appendix 2, Appendix 17 and the Viewer of the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part)

·   Plan Change 15 - Improving consistency of provisions in Chapter F Coastal, Chapter J Definitions, Appendix 7 and the viewer of the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part)

·   Plan Change 16 - Improving consistency of provisions in Chapter H Zones and Chapter J Definitions of the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part).

14.     The recommendation at this Planning Committee is to approve Plan Changes 14 and 16 under clause 17(2) of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991. This will make the amendments operative.

15.     As Plan Change 15 relates to the regional coastal plan part of the Auckland Unitary Plan it needs to be adopted and referred to the Minister of Conservation for approval under clause 18(4) of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) before it can be made operative.

Plan Change process to date   

16.     The four plan changes were publicly notified on 29 November 2018.

17.     Proposed Plan Change 14 received 22 submissions and 12 further submissions were received. Proposed Plan Change 16 received a total of 36 submissions and 10 further submissions were received. A hearing for Plan Change 14 and 16 was held on 20, 21 and 24 June 2019.

18.     Council released the decision on 22 August 2018 for plan changes 14 and 16.

19.     Proposed Plan Change 15 received 12 submissions and 6 further submissions were received. A hearing for plan change 15 was held on 9 May 2019.

20.     Council released the Plan Change 15 decision on 27 June 2019 and one appeal was lodged by Federated Farmers (ENV-2019-AKL-000149).  Two parties (Manaia Properties Ltd and Minister of Conservation) joined the appeal.  As noted above, the appeal has been withdrawn.

21.     All decisions, which contain the amendments for the plan changes can be read on the council website. The decision confirms a number of technical changes to the AUP.   

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

22.     Schedule 1 of the RMA sets out the statutory process the development of plan changes.

23.     Clause 17(2) states that ‘a local authority may approve part of a policy statement or plan, if all submissions or appeals relating to that part have been disposed of’. There were no appeals received for Plan Change 14 and 16.

24.     Clause 20 of Schedule 1 sets out the process that is required to be undertaken for the notification of the operative date. Staff will notify the operative date as soon as possible following the Planning Committee’s resolution.

Plan Change 15

25.     Clause 18(4) states that “a regional council may adopt part of a proposed regional coastal plan if all submissions or inquiries relating to that part have been disposed of”. Plan Change 15 had one appeal from Federated Farmers which was withdrawn on 14 November 2019. 

26.     The Federated Farmers appeal related to the amendments made to address an inconsistency between the Auckland Unitary Plan text and maps regarding the location of the coastal marine area boundary where it crosses a river.  Appendix 7 of the Plan has a list of topographical map grid references for 250 rivers throughout the Auckland region.  In several cases these grid references are inconsistent with the indicative coastline location shown in the GIS map viewer for the relevant rivers.  Plan Change 15 corrected the listed coastal marine area / river boundary grid references so that they were consistent with the GIS maps, and added a new “information” map layer to number the river boundary points consistently with the Appendix.

27.     The Federated Farmers appeal considered that, at least in some cases, the location of the coastal marine area boundary was not in accordance with the legislation.  Under the RMA definition of “mouth” the coastal marine area boundary should be at the lesser of either one kilometre upstream of the mouth of the river or the point upstream calculated by multiplying the width of the river by five.  Correcting the relevant points on the maps for all rivers could not be undertaken under the appeal as it would be outside the scope of the plan change. 

28.     Council officers have carried out an analysis which indicates that there are potential issues with several of the coastal marine area / river boundary points in Auckland. These issues largely relate to the greater accuracy now available in GIS compared to the earlier paper-based maps.

29.     It is proposed that further work be undertaken and then reported to the Planning Committee with a recommendation about which points should be included in a future plan change.  The intention to undertake this work was reported to Federated Farmers and they have withdrawn their appeal in response.  As Plan Change 15 relates to regional coastal plan provisions, it must be sent to the Minister of Conservation for approval before it can be made operative.  Once the Minister sends her approval, Plans and Places staff will notify the operative date and update the Auckland Unitary Plan.

Climate impact statement

30.     As this report is recommending a procedural step under the RMA, there are no impacts on climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

31.     The plan changes were led by the Plans and Places department. Specialist advice was received from staff in the Auckland Design Office, Regulatory Services, Healthy Waters and Auckland Transport. These specialists provided advice on the proposed plan changes and the supporting section 32 reports and provided the responses to the submissions at the hearings. 

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

32.     In October 2017, a memo was sent to advise all local boards about these proposed plan changes and invited local board members to advise Plans and Places staff of any technical issues that they had identified.

33.     In August 2018, local boards were provided with a draft copy of Proposed Plan Change 15 and 16 to the Auckland Unitary Plan. A draft copy of plan change 14 was provided to the local boards on 25 September 2018. 

34.     All local boards were also advised of the public notification of Plan Change 14, 15 and 16 on 29 November 2018.  

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

35.     On 3 October 2017, 19 mana whenua entities that were identified to have an interest in the area were sent a memo which advised about these proposed plan changes and invited to advise Plans and Places staff of any technical issues that they had identified.

36.     All 19 mana whenua entities were also consulted prior to public notification on 29 November 2018 for Plan Change 14, 15 and 16. The only response received was from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei who were supportive of the plan changes. A hui was held with the planning representative from Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei to discuss key points in the plan changes.

37.     All mana whenua with an interest were sent formal notification of the plan changes on 29 November 2018.  The Tūpuna Maunga Authority submitted on Plan Change 14 and attended the hearings for Plan Change 14.
