Cr P Coom retired from the meeting at 3.49pm.
Cr W Walker returned to the meeting at 4.04pm.

 

Resolution number PAC/2022/37

MOVED by Cr A Filipaina, seconded by Cr C Casey:  

That the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee:

a)      tūtohi / receive the assessment of the change of designation of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park and adjacent Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve to a regional park which found that:

i)       Chelsea Estate Heritage Park and adjacent reserves align with some values typically found in regional parks, such as natural and heritage features. But they lack some other values common to regional parks, due to impacts of ongoing operations at the Chelsea Sugar factory and limited recreation opportunities 

ii)      designation as a regional park or asset would not address the identified concerns facing the reserves since resource for maintenance, protection of heritage and ecosystems, development of a management plan, and a public awareness campaign are not impacted by a regional park or asset designation

iii)     governance is best aligned with the Kaipātiki Local Board as decisions for the Chelsea Estate Heritage Park mostly impact local residents with 60 per cent of visitors living in either the Kaipātiki (40 per cent), Devonport-Takapuna (11 per cent), or Waitematā (9 per cent) Local Board areas.   

b)      whakaae / agree that Chelsea Estate Heritage Park and surrounding reserves remain designated as local reserves under local-board decision making, i.e., the status quo

c)      tuhi / note that staff are considering how best to address the issues identified for Chelsea Estate Heritage Park, Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve in the Kaipātiki Local Parks Management Plan (under development).
