1          Nau mai | Welcome

 

The Chair led the meeting with a karakia.

 

Whakataka te hau ki te uru

Whakataka te hau ki te tonga

Kia mākinakina ki uta

Kia mātaratara ki tai

E hī ake ana te atakura

He tio

He huka

He hau hū

Tīhei mauri ora!

 

Cease o winds from the west

Cease o winds from the south

Bring calm breezes over the land

Bring calm breezes over the sea

And let the red-tipped dawn come

With a touch of frost

A sharpened air

And promise of a glorious day

Notice of Motion - Member Bonham - Plan Change for Helicopters

 

Resolution number WTM/2023/125

MOVED by Member A Bonham, seconded by Member A Matson:  

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)         receive the Notice of Motion, Attachment A to the agenda report.

b)      advocate to the Governing Body to prioritise the progression of a plan change to the AUP, to change the activity status of non-emergency helicopter movements in urban and suburban residential areas, including mixed-use areas, Single House Zones and the Coastal Zone (HGI Plan and AUP), from non-complying to prohibited, noting that existing use rights within the RMA protects existing consents.

c)      recommend this plan change be prioritised as soon as regional funds become available, perhaps using unspent budgets in the third or fourth quarter of this financial year.  

d)      advocate to the Parks, Environment and Planning committee to direct staff in the interim to:

i)       install noise measuring equipment on or adjacent to sites with existing consents for helicopter movements that can effectively measure noise levels and track timings of all flights, so that information on levels of compliance can be made reported on with a greater degree of reliability

ii)      charge the cost of this to consent holders, as per the conditions of their consents.

e)      seek officers’ formal responses to all actions under Resolution PEPCC/2023/48/ including but not limited to para (h) to “option 4, (prohibited activity in residential areas) the officers be requested to report back on how a plan change to give effect to option 4 could feasibly be included in the budget for future public and private plan changes for the Hauraki Gulf Island District Plan and the Auckland Unitary Plan” and (g) with regard the position of the CAA around making the use of transponders at all times compulsory during flights including at landing and departure.
