11        Notices of Motion

 

Under Standing Order 2.5.1 (LBS 3.11.1) a Notice of Motion has been received from Chairperson John Gillon for consideration under item 12.

 

12

Notice of Motion - Compliance and Bylaw Enforcement

 

Resolution number KT/2022/10

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Member P Gillon:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          consider that the enforcement of its many bylaws (including its compliance and enforcement responsibilities under a range of legislation) is a core and essential function of Auckland Council, and that the local board and the public expect that bylaws are enforced in a timely manner and in full.

b)         request that the relevant compliance enforcement teams be urgently provided sufficient resources to effectively carry out their roles.

c)          request that call centre staff are provided updated training and instruction in the city’s bylaws to enable them to accurately and effectively carry out their roles.

d)         request that the Chief Executive give direction for a compliance enforcement review across Auckland Council and Council-Controlled Organisations to take place before Easter, for the purpose of identifying the challenges and obstacles in enforcement and recommend solutions to overcome them.

e)          request that the review investigates and reports back on resourcing options including, but not limited to, an increase in employed compliance enforcement officers; routinely contracting work out to third parties during peak times; warranting staff of relevant teams and Auckland Council contractors who are present in areas where bylaw breaches may occur; overcoming delineation issues between council departments and between Auckland Council and Auckland Transport; funding enforcement in part through fines; and/or the re-introduction of educative approaches by unwarranted employees at peak times.

f)           request that the operational practice of not investigating camping on reserve land until after the second night, and then allowing up to three days to respond is reconsidered, as this potentially allows camping for up to five nights when this is an illegal activity prohibited under the Reserves Act 1977.

g)         acknowledge that there will be an opportunity to provide this feedback via the Annual Budget 2022/23 consultation but consider that, given the wide range of problems reported by residents and elected members across Auckland and dissatisfaction that it is often not possible for these to be responded to and resolved, that this must be addressed and planned for with urgency.

h)         thank the staff in the Compliance and Community Facilities teams who are doing an outstanding job under the circumstances of being severely under-resourced to deal with the sheer volume and variety of compliance breaches across the region.

i)           request that the Kaipātiki Local Board be provided the opportunity to speak to the contents of this Notice of Motion at the next meeting of the Regulatory Committee.

j)           request that this Notice of Motion be forwarded members of all Local Boards, the Governing Body, the Independent Māori Statutory Board, as well as the Mayor, and Chief Executive.

Precedence of Business

Resolution number KT/2022/11

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Deputy Chairperson D Grant:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          agree that item 20: Public Feedback on the Proposal to make a new Freedom Camping in Vehicles Bylaw 2022 be accorded precedence at this time.

CARRIED

 

20

Public feedback on proposal to make a Freedom Camping in Vehicles Bylaw 2022

 

Resolution number KT/2022/12

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Member A Tyler:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          receive public feedback on the proposal to make a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Te Ture ā-Rohe Noho Puni Wātea ā-Waka 2022 / Auckland Council Freedom Camping in Vehicles Bylaw 2022 in this agenda report.

b)         provide the following views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal in recommendation (a) to assist the Bylaw Panel in its deliberations:

i)           the board supports General Rule 1 – to include general rules to manage freedom camping in areas where it is not otherwise prohibited or restricted – noting that 58% of local HYS submissions and 93% of local RS respondents supported having general rules.

ii)         the board supports General Rule 2.1 that would require freedom campers staying in these areas to use a certified self-contained vehicle to help to prevent toilet waste, and cooking and washing wastewater being left behind – noting that this is consistent with our feedback in August, and that 65% local HYS support and 78% local RS support for this rule.

iii)        the board supports General Rule 2.2 that would require freedom campers staying in these areas to stay a maximum of one night in the same road or off-road parking area – noting that this is consistent with our feedback in August, and that 43% local HYS support and 80% local RS supported two nights for this rule, while 30% of HYS submissions favoured one night.

iv)        the board supports General Rule 2.3 that would require freedom campers staying in these areas to depart by 8am to help ensure a turnover of carpark spaces, and minimise conflict with other users of the area/neighbours – noting that this is consistent with our feedback in August, and that there were mixed local views on this in the HYS submissions (17% supporting 8am, 17% supporting 9am, and 21% supporting 10am) and 47% local RS support for a 9am departure time

v)         the board supports General Rule 2.4 that would require freedom campers not to return to the same road or off-road parking area within a four week period to ensure fair access to the area, create less pressure on council’s already overburdened compliance and enforcement resources, and give somewhat greater assurance that nuisance to nearby residents and businesses can be mitigated and managed, noting that this is consistent with our feedback in August, and that 30% local HYS supported a two week period and 22% local RS supported a four week period for this rule, while 53% of HYS submissions favoured two weeks.

vi)        the board does not express any view on the restricted areas listed in the proposal as there are no proposed sites within the local board area.

c)          provide the additional feedback to the Bylaw Panel:

i)           The board expresses concern that if this bylaw is adopted, all land held by Auckland Council under the Local Government Act (including most of the road corridor) will be available for freedom camping (unless specified as prohibited) rather than appropriate freedom camping locations being specifically identified in the bylaw, and note that this is a significant and radical change from the existing bylaw where freedom camping is prohibited unless specified.

ii)         The board is extremely disappointed that potential prohibited and restricted sites put forward by many local boards last year during the drafting of the Statement of Proposal for the bylaw, were not adopted into the proposed bylaw so they could be consulted on with the public, even where they specified how they met the criteria to warrant protection laid out in clause 11(2) of the Freedom Camping Act 2011.

iii)        As elected representatives, local boards have the legal ability to determine local views, needs and preferences via resolution, without requiring follow-up investigation and confirmation by council staff, and so it is both insulting and demeaning for the Regulatory Committee and Governing Body to intentionally not include specific prohibited and restricted sites that have been researched and put forward by local boards in good faith and in line with the Freedom Camping Act 2011 until such future time that council staff have verified the local board’s nominated sites.

iv)        If further information was required to satisfy the Regulatory Committee or Governing Body, local boards could have provided this on request.

v)         We are also very disappointed that in September last year, the Governing Body formally resolved (GB/2021/114 clause g) that it would not include in the bylaw any additional prohibited or restricted sites put forward during public consultation, and would instead refer them to a future bylaw amendment consultation period. The unfortunate result of this decision is that there will be an unspecified time period between the adoption of the bylaw and the adoption of the amendment during which current freedom camping problem areas (even where they were nominated by a local board and met the criteria in the Freedom Camping Act 2011 for restriction or prohibition) could be subject to legal freedom camping.

vi)        We formally request that the sites put forward in resolution KT/2021/131 are included in Schedule 2 of the bylaw at the earliest opportunity.

d)         appoint the Chairperson to present the views in (b) and (c) to the Bylaw Panel on 22 April 2022.

e)          delegate authority to the local board chair to appoint replacement(s) to the persons in (d) should an appointed member be unable to present to the Bylaw Panel.

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson D Grant, seconded by Member P Gillon:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)         provide the following feedback on the eight strategic shifts of the Water Strategy framework:

                    i)         express considerable disappointment that local boards have not been specifically included in any of the strategic shifts, meaning that the public are excluded from decision making via their local representatives.

                   ii)         request that local boards continue to provide input and oversight on the management of any water catchment within their boundary, including (but not limited to) where water passes through reserve land or LGA park land.

                 iii)         note the lack of financial accountability within the Water Strategy.

                 iv)         request that council includes an official position statement on access to water for health and wellbeing.

                   v)         notes with concern the expectation that an acceptance of highly treated wastewater being returned back into the networks is expected over the next 10 years.

Public feedback on proposal to make a new Signs Bylaw 2022

 

Resolution number KT/2022/21

MOVED by Member P Gillon, seconded by Member A Tyler:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          receive the public feedback on the proposal to make a new Auckland Council and Auckland Transport Ture ā-Rohe mo nga Tohu 2022 / Signs Bylaw 2022 and associated controls in this agenda report.

b)         note that two people from the Kaipātiki Local Board area submitted on the draft Signs Bylaw 2022.

c)          thank the Bylaw Panel for making a change to the proposal in response to previous local board feedback in regards to clarifying that approval is required for any sign on a boundary fence facing an Open Space Zone, and that election signs on private properties must not be directed at any council-controlled park, reserve or Open Space Zone.

d)         provide the following views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal in recommendation (a) to assist the Bylaw Panel in its deliberations:

                    i)         request that the amount of time available for garage sale signs is extended to 3-7 days, as most garage sales begin early in the morning and require advertising in advance. We support garage sales as they contribute to the zero-waste strategy by enabling the reuse of items.

                   ii)         request that the rules on illuminated real estate signs are tightened, particularly where they are near road intersections or busy roads, and where they are attached to mobile frames. These signs are already proving a distraction to vehicle drivers, particularly due to the high brightness at night, the movement of the slides, and because unlike fixed billboard sites, real estate signs appear in unexpected places. We expect illuminated real estate signs to substantially increase in number over time.

Public feedback on proposal to amend the Property Maintenance and Nuisance Bylaw 2015

 

Resolution number KT/2022/22

MOVED by Member P Gillon, seconded by Member A Tyler:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          receive the public feedback on the proposal to amend Te Ture ā-rohe Tiaki Rawa me Ngā Mahi Whakapōrearea 2015 / the Property Maintenance and Nuisance Bylaw 2015 in this report.

b)         note that two people from the Kaipātiki Local Board area submitted on the draft Signs Bylaw 2022, and a total of 30 submissions were received from across the whole Auckland Council area

c)          provide the following views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal in recommendation (a) to assist the Bylaw Panel in its deliberations:

i)           the board supports ‘Proposal 1 – Remove the lighting rules as these are now regulated through the Auckland Unitary Plan’, noting that that 70% of the total respondents supported this.

ii)         the board supports ‘Proposal 2 – Remove references to the revocation of legal council bylaw’, noting that 88% of total respondents supported this.

iii)        the board partially supports ‘Proposal 3 – Update the bylaw definitions, structure, format, and wording’, noting that 86% of the total respondents supported this.

iv)        the board does not support the proposal to remove most of the explicit list of definitions of ‘nuisance’ in ‘Section 5 – Interpretation’, and instead rely almost entirely on referencing section 29 of the Health Act 1956, which is expressed in language which may not be readily understood by some. The board considers that this has the unintended effect of making the meaning of ‘nuisance’ less clear than in the previous bylaw.

v)         the board asks that the definition of ‘nuisance’ be amended to include invasive and noxious pest plants – such as woolly nightshade, moth plant, and privet – noting that these can form dense vegetation which harbours pest animals; can spread easily through the public environment where eradication becomes difficult and expensive; and in some cases can have adverse effects on human health.

vi)        Seek improved Auckland Council enforcement as and when breaches are notified to Auckland Council and identified by Auckland Council staff and our contractors.

d)         appoint the Deputy Chair to present the views in b) to the Bylaw Panel on 25 March 2022.

e)          delegate authority to the local board chair to appoint replacement(s) to the persons in d) should an appointed member be unable to present to the Bylaw Panel on 25 March 2022.

MOVED by Member A Tyler, seconded by Deputy Chairperson D Grant:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          receive the following tabled documents:

i)           Final Memo to Local Boards for Hākaimangō-Matiatia Marine Reserve application

ii)         DOC website 'proposed Hākaimangō-Matiatia (Northwest Waiheke) Marine Reserve'

iii)        Hakaimango-Matiatia-Marine Reserve map

b)         thank the Friends of the Hauraki Gulf for their proposal on the Hākaimangō-Matiatia Marine Reserve.

b)         thank Auckland Council and the Department of Conservation for the opportunity to have input into the creation of the Hakaimango-Matiatia Marine Reserve. 

c)          provide local board input into Auckland Council’s submission on the Hākaimangō-Matiatia Marine Reserve application to the Department of Conservation (DOC), to inform a council-wide submission through the Environment and Climate Change Committee.

i)           note that both "The State of Our Gulf 2020" (Hauraki Gulf Forum & Auckland Council 2020) and "Revitalising the Gulf: Government Action on the Sea Change Plan" (DOC, MPI, Dept Fisheries June 2021) show the Hauraki Gulf is in environmental decline and call for the establishment of marine reserves as part of a strategy to restore the 'mauri' or ecological health of the Hauraki Gulf.

ii)         support in principle the proposal for the establishment of the Hakaimango-Matiatia Marine Reserve situated off the northwest coast of Waiheke Island. 

iii)        request consideration for the reserve boundaries to be extended, particularly to the eastern coast of Motutapu, and be aligned with geographical features such as natural headlands as shown in tabled map “Hakaimango-Matiatia Marine Reserve” to facilitate easy identification for boat users and coastal fishers, and to include more coastline and hence protect more coastal ecology. 

iv)        welcome other conservation and restoration proposals including those led by Mana Whenua and including utilising customary practises such as Rahui. 

d)         request that this resolution be forwarded to all Councillors and Local Boards with due consideration that the submission deadline is 12pm Monday 21st February.
