Local Board input on the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management

 

Resolution number PPK/2022/176

MOVED by Chairperson B Catchpole, seconded by Member G Hawkins:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      note the feedback received from communities through the first stage of public engagement with the National Policy Statement - Freshwater Management 2020, in Attachment D, Attachment E and Attachment F

b)      provide the following feedback on the implementation of the National Policy Statement - Freshwater Management 2020 for Auckland:

Proposed freshwater management units

i)                 The board generally agrees with the three proposed freshwater management units (FMUs) for the region, being: the Hauraki FMU, the Kaipara FMU, and the Manukau FMU.

ii)               The board is concerned that the Hauraki freshwater management unit (FMU) bounding the Manukau Harbour may cause a disjointed approach to the Manukau FMU.

Values and environment outcomes for water bodies or areas

iii)             The board is a strong advocate for improving the water quality of tributaries to the receiving environment of the Manukau Harbour.

iv)             The Papakura Local Board Plan 2020 has a number of initiatives supporting the improvement of water quality in the Papakura Stream and ultimately the Manukau Harbour. 

v)               The Papakura Local Board has worked with Franklin and Manurewa Local Boards to increase riparian planting with a view to improving the water quality of the Papakura Stream.

vi)             It should be noted that there are many other tributaries to the Manukau Harbour flowing through the Papakura Local Board area of equal importance, such as but not limited to: Hingaia Stream, Otūwairoa Stream (Slippery Creek), Hays Creek and Ngakoroa Stream.

vii)            There is significant development signalled in the Papakura / Hingaia / Drury areas which will potentially impact on the waterways and catchments.

viii)          The board believes it is important to treasure aquifers which are impacted by land use.

ix)             With more impervious surfaces as a result of growth, there is a potential impact on replenishing aquifer levels. 

x)               The board feels it is important to have more green space in new intensified developments to aid with managing and filtering stormwater run-off.

xi)             The board believes a monitoring system for aquifer water levels and water quality is required, particularly in a dry season.

xii)            The board feels Papakura is positioned quite well in terms of water supply, however, the board does have a concern about there being enough water to accommodate growth.

xiii)          Consideration needs to be given to encourage alternative water systems to ease pressure of an increasing population, such as, rainwater harvesting for non-drinking purposes e.g.: watering gardens and flushing toilets.

xiv)          The board expressed concern about leachate from old rubbish dumps.  In particular, in the Pahurehure area which is has an old rubbish dump adjacent to the inlet.

xv)            As part of development, consideration should be given to how the development is impacting the carbon footprint and whether the development is disturbing natural carbon sinks.

xvi)          The board expressed concern about nitrate run-off impacting freshwater catchments.

xvii)        The board is also concerned about the impacts on the receiving environment with run-off from people washing cars on the road or driveways. In the new intensified developments with limited or no off-road parking it is difficult to find a grassed area to wash a car.

Specified vegetable growing area at Pukekohe

xviii)      The board is supportive of maintaining food security by providing for a specified in-soil fruit and vegetable growing area at Pukekohe and request that staff work with the providers to meet the bottom-line water requirements set by the National Policy Statement – Freshwater Management by 2030.
