Deputy Chairperson G Moyle moved an amendment by way of replacement to the original motion as follows:

a)          defer consideration of whether or not to extend the Landowner approval for the Erebus memorial until after receipt of the Ombudsman’s Report into the Auckland Council / Waitamata Local Board or 1st June 2023 (whichever is first) after which it will be make a decision in its discretion reasonably exercised taking into account relevant considerations and excluding irrelevant considerations, on the following terms and conditions:

i)           that by midnight on 7th December 2022 (time being of the essence) MCH entirely remove from the Park and surrounds, any fencing and other equipment, restore the ground and mow the grass.  Failure to meet this condition has the consequence that the Landowner Approval is revoked from that time.

ii)          should MCH and/or contractors or agents make any attempt to bring onto the site, the Park or surrounds, any fencing, equipment, or Erebus Memorial infrastructure, or attempt to start works anywhere on or near those places, prior to receipt and review by the Board of the Ombudsman’s report, the 2020 landowner Approval is hereby revoked as of the moment of such attempt(s) with no further formality.

iii)         should MCH and/or contractors or agents make any one or more attempts as in clause ii) above, prior to the MCH taking reasonable steps to address the grievances described by the Ombudsman in his report concerning MCH, the 2020 Landowner Approval is hereby revoked as of the moment of such attempt(s).  For clarity, ‘reasonable steps to address the grievances’ includes mediation with the complainants as recommended by the Ombudsman unless waived by complainants.

 

The amendment was put to the vote by show of hands and was declared LOST by 3 votes to 4.

 

Note: Changes were made to the original motion, substituting ‘recommence construction in clause a) i) with ‘proceed with the memorial’, with the agreement of the meeting.

Resolution number WTM/2022/199

MOVED by Chairperson G Sage, seconded by Member R Northey:   

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      endorse the following approach to effectively and efficiently manage the governance work of the local board for the 2022-2025 triennium:

i)       maintain a key focus on annual work programmes and their implementation through quarterly reporting and regular workshops with the whole local board, with decisions made at business meetings

ii)      appoint nominated local board members who will be consulted on landowner consents and events, and who will provide feedback on liquor licences and resource consents

iii)     appoint nominated local board members to external organisations.

b)      note that portfolios are an optional mechanism that can play a part of sharing the workload across board members, that leads should act as a champion with the local board on specific topic areas, focus on work programme activities/ projects within their topic areas and understand relevant community needs and preferences enabling other members to focus their time on other parts of the local board’s workload.
