MOVED by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston, seconded by Chairperson B Bailey:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)          whakarite / provide the following feedback on the draft Spatial Land Use Strategy for the Dairy Flat and Silverdale Future Urban Zones:

i)           express concern that the future proposed town/metro centre for Dairy Flat, the Rapid Transport Network and surrounding high density residential housing will be located within an identified flood hazard of Dairy Stream and even if hazards can be mitigated by engineering solutions, these interventions can become overwhelmed during extreme events as has been seen in 2023

ii)          request that for our future greenfield developments, we need to ensure dense housing is in climate resilient areas and future residents are not put in harm’s way because of poor planning decisions which would result in inefficient use of resources and have financial implications for all New Zealanders

iii)         request Healthy Waters review the proposed town centre locations including the adjacent high density residential housing for climate resilience before the Spatial Land Use Strategy is adopted and provide details of the suitability of this area for the proposed development

iv)         express concern that the location of the Dairy Flat town centre is being locked in prior to detailed analysis /structural planning being completed due to the delay until 2050 of the Dairy Flat development under the Future Development Strategy and therefore it may be over 25 years before the full impacts are known 

v)          express concern that a number of constraints within the proposed Dairy Flat metropolitan town centre may result in increased costs/fragmented development due to the following: floodplains, challenging topography, fragmented land ownership, existing high-value dwellings, land/slope stability and land title covenants on Goodlands estate that prevent further subdivision.

vi)                express concern with the large number of traffic movements traveling east to west through this future development and the conflicts which will arise if we don’t protect the transport corridors for vehicle movements.

b)          request consideration be given to protecting a transport corridor to safely convey vehicles, including freight, through the area without conflicts and safety concerns.
