Local board views on private plan change 92 for Wellsford North

 

Ryan Bradley - Senior Policy Planner and Peter Scott – Planning Consultant were in attendance for this item.

 

Resolution number RD/2024/25

MOVED by Member M Carmichael, seconded by Member C Smith:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)         whakarite / provide the following local board views on private plan change 92 by the Wellsford Welding Club Limited for approximately 72 hectares of land in the northeastern edge of Wellsford:

i)          support the plan to provide additional housing in Wellsford, particularly as the location of this proposed development is near to the town centre allowing access to essential services for future residents (schools, shops, and medical centre, etc.) within walking distance

ii)         note the development will have economic benefits for local businesses

iii)       request the development is timed so it does not put unmanageable pressure on the existing Wellsford wastewater and water treatment plants, which currently experience issues during seasonal peak demands or weather events therefore, the timing of upgrades to water plants needs to be considered

iv)       request that complete integrated stormwater planning for all drainage sub-catchments be completed before any development occurs

v)         express concern regarding increased traffic at the intersection of Batten Street and Rodney Street due to the current level of visibility at that intersection

vi)       support the location of the new access road onto Rodney Street (State Highway 1), however:

vii)      request the new access lot does not impact high traffic flows or increase the risk of closures due to accidents, as this is the current main arterial route connecting Whangārei and Auckland

viii)     suggest the T-intersection option includes a south bound left turning lane to not impede the flow of southbound traffic or alternatively, suggest the roundabout option provides a more appropriate and safer alternative considering that residents of the adjacent housing in the area may choose this route due to its better sight lines when trying to exit onto Rodney Street

ix)       support the development providing walking and cycling routes in line with the Wellsford Greenways Plan

x)         suggest the ‘dedicated cycle path’ along the railway line is instead a shared pedestrian and cycle path as this will make this path more versatile for pedestrian connections to the town centre and for fitness use

xi)       support requesting access / easement in order to create a pedestrian and cycle connection to Matheson Road to improve connectivity to the existing town 

xii)      support the proposed village centre, and playgrounds for children and young people

xiii)     support the proposed landscape buffers along State Highway 1 and open spaces within the ecological areas

xiv)     recommend including a landscape buffer along the railway line as well as proposed Greenways paths

xv)      express concern that an increase in impervious areas may cause flow on effects to surrounding properties as the development is subject to overland flow paths and flood plains and given the severity of storm events early last year and modern developments with modern mitigation methods were affected by flood waters

xvi)     support the secondary road widths which include a six-metre carriageway as this will enable emergency vehicle access

xvii)   support the proposed mixed housing model to offer a variety of options for buyers and future residents

xviii)  request that off street parking/garaging is provided for proposed housing understanding that increasing walking, cycling and public transport use are ultimate goals, the realities are that residents will also use vehicles to commute for employment, recreation and other services and the provision of off-street parking within each property boundary also enables safe plug-in vehicle charging

xix)     express concern that the development area includes regenerating native forest and freshwater systems with high ecological values

xx)      express concern that there is already insufficient council and central government funding for the infrastructure required for live-zoned greenfield areas in Auckland, and out-of-sequence development will only worsen this funding gap and ultimately result in overcrowded schools, parks with no facilities, traffic congestion, and temporary waste and water solutions therefore council need to ensure that there is a planned approach to delivering infrastructure as detailed in the Future Development Strategy, not ad hoc developments that ultimately lead to urban sprawl and poor outcomes

xxi)     express concern that council does not have the funding to purchase park or reserve land in live-zoned developments, and this problem will only worsen if out-of-sequence developments are consented.

b)      kopou / appoint a Member M Carmichael to speak to the local board views at a hearing on private plan change 92

c)      tautapa / delegate authority to the chairperson of the Rodney Local Board to make a replacement appointment in the event the local board member appointed in resolution (b) is unable to attend the private plan change hearing.

Auckland Unitary Plan - Local board views on Private Plan Change 93 (PC93) by KA Waimanawa Limited Partnership and Stepping Towards Far Limited, Warkworth South

 

Peter Vari – Team Leader Planning and David Wren – Planning Consultant were in attendance for this item.

 

MOVED by Member M Carmichael, seconded by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)         whakarite / provide the following local board views on private plan change 93 lodged by KA Waimanawa Limited Partnership and Stepping Towards Far Limited

i)             express concern about the flood risks associated with the development as it is near to the Mahurangi River and is subject to flooding and overland flow paths in the area

ii)            express concerns that adjacent urbanisation of the Mahurangi River and contributing waterways poses an increased flood risk and the potential for stream habitat loss due to the increase of impervious areas and resulting stormwater generated noting modern mitigation methods are not always successful in offsetting negative effects to residents, housing and the ecological environment within and on surrounding land and housing areas 

iii)           request the development is timed to ensure the provision of adequate water and wastewater infrastructure if this cannot be provided for in a self-sustainable way (solely within the development) and if this is not achievable, we request that it is timed with delivery of the needed infrastructure upgrades to support the development, noting that Watercare has stated that future planned upgrades already planned are needed for other developments already planned in the area, and therefore will not have the capacity to service the Warkworth South area 

iv)           acknowledge the development will have economic benefits for local businesses, particularly those located to the south of the Warkworth town centre (e.g. The Grange on Auckland Road / Old State Highway 1), which will be within walking distance

v)            request that off street parking/garaging is provided for proposed housing  understanding  increasing walking, cycling and public transport use are ultimate goals, the realities are that residents will also use vehicles to commute for employment, recreation and other services and the provision of off-street parking within each property boundary also enables safe plug-in vehicle charging

vi)           express concerns that the proposed plan change area will be separated by a ‘future urban zone’ rather than an existing developed urban area, reducing the opportunities to make connections with other developed parts of Warkworth and though the area has been identified by Auckland Council as future urban, the timing of the proposed plan change seems premature in comparison to areas closer to the current developed areas

vii)         express concerns there is a lack of public transport to service the plan change area as funding for bus routes in the area is already constrained

viii)        express concerns the plan change is premature before the future roading network capabilities are clear as the upgrades to the Hill Street intersection along with other arterial routes proposed by Supporting Growth (Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport and Auckland Transport) are not guaranteed 

ix)           support the developer’s provision of arterial routes within the plan change area

x)            support the proposed upgrades to pedestrian and cycle path connections on connecting roads such as Mason Heights and Auckland Road (Old State Highway 1)

xi)           suggest increased buffers or noise mitigation from traffic noise for future properties located adjacent to arterial roads, current, proposed and those also proposed and potentially affected by the future northern Notice or Requirements 

xii)         support the provision of a southern bus interchange however, we express concerns about how new bus routes servicing this infrastructure will be funded as without direct links via a bus service, it is likely that residents will utilise the park and ride in the north of Warkworth and the capacity of the existing and planned park and rides near the motorway need to be assessed to determine if they can support this further demand, additional to current and future use from Warkworth North development

xiii)        support the development providing walking and cycling routes in line with the Puhoi to Pakiri Greenways Plan

xiv)        support most of the road widths proposed which include carriageways that enable emergency vehicle and public transport access however, are concerned the centre planting on the proposed ‘Green Road’ may impede  access 

xv)         request that all road widths (some to be determined) enable emergency vehicle and public transport access

xvi)        support the proposed varied lot sizes and mixed housing model to offer a variety of options for buyers and future residents

xvii)       support the proposed business and local centre to offer provision of some services and employment 

xviii)      support the inclusion of open space, conservation, sports, active and recreation zones and suggest including smaller pockets of play areas and additional wider buffers around waterways throughout the proposal, to increase the total open space available, decrease total impervious areas, and further protect natural areas

xix)        support the preservation of natural wetlands and the retention of Waimanawa wetland reserve and provision of the Endeans Farm Recreational Park however express concerns about alterations to existing wetlands whether natural or man-made 

xx)         express concerns about the effects on longtail bats present in the site and  strongly request appropriate mitigation to result in no net losses of the bat population

xxi)        express concerns the proposed development area includes a Significant Ecological Area and ecological values both on land and in the freshwater systems, including the presence of wetland and long-tail bats

xxii)       express concerns that there is already insufficient council and central government funding for the infrastructure required for live-zoned greenfield areas in Auckland, and out-of-sequence development will only worsen this funding gap and ultimately result in overcrowded schools, parks with no facilities, traffic congestion, and temporary waste and water solutions therefore council need to ensure that there is a planned approach to delivering infrastructure as detailed in the Future Development Strategy, not ad hoc developments that ultimately lead to urban sprawl and poor outcomes

xxiii)      express concerns that council does not have the funding to purchase park or reserve land in live-zoned developments, and this problem will only worsen if out-of-sequence developments are consented

xxiv)      request that a complete integrated stormwater planning for all drainage sub catchments be completed before any development occurs.

b)      kopou / appoint a Local Board Member M Carmichael to speak to the local board views at a hearing on private plan change 93

c)      tautapa / delegate authority to the chairperson of the Rodney Local Board to make a replacement appointment in the event the local board member appointed in resolution b) is unable to attend the private plan change hearing.

xi)          express concern for any new development including intersections on the old state highway one inter- regional transport corridor which will remain as a long distance transport corridor connecting Warkworth to Orewa and provide a free alternative to the new toll road

xii)         suggest increased buffers or noise mitigation from traffic noise for future properties located adjacent to arterial roads, current, proposed and those also proposed and potentially affected by the future northern Notice or Requirements

MOVED by Chairperson Bailey an amendment to the original recommendations by way of replacement SECONDED by Member M Dennis.

 

Resolution number RD/2024/27

MOVED by Chairperson B Bailey, seconded by Member M Dennis:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

CARRIED

 

 

14

Representation review and local board reorganisation

 

Warwick McNaughton - Principal Advisor Governance was in attendance for this item.

 

Resolution number RD/2024/28

MOVED by Member M Carmichael, seconded by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)         representation for both local boards and councillors should not be based on population size alone. When calculating required representation, weighting should be given to the size of the geographical area they govern, number of communities of interest, town catchments within the local board subdivision areas, and number of local board subdivisions within the ward. This would help to provide more effective representation for those constituents through the ability to elect a member they believe will represent their community’s interests, and to provide a better balance of power in local board and governing body decision-making where at present communities of interest e.g. rural (amongst others) are marginalised because they are only represented by a proportional minority of decision-makers

b)        tautoko / support rural local boards not being amalgamated, due to the large geographic area and diversity of community issues

c)         tono / request further information on how amalgamated local boards will be better resourced to respond to opportunities, needs and circumstances of their area.

CARRIED

 

Member G Upson left the meeting at 1.28pm.

15

Proposals for More Empowered Local Boards

 

Warwick McNaughton - Principal Advisor Governance was in attendance for this item.

 

Resolution number RD/2024/29

MOVED by Member M Carmichael, seconded by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)            tono / request further information on how current complex approaches could become simpler, and whether this can occur without reorganisation

b)           tautoko / support we need sufficient strategic advice to fulfil our purpose on behalf of our communities. Tight time frames on decision-making and feedback can impact this. For example the number of demands put on local board to review policies and plans, and the short deadlines of that feedback which involves significant amounts of reading is problematic.  We have also experienced lower staffing levels further putting undue strain on local board staff and timely access to information

c)            tautoko / support sufficient resourcing and greater decision making/accountability over funding arrangements if reasonable funding is available to maintain current assets and services.  However, oppose this if we are facing budget cuts because the reality for our communities is that although we have more power to make decisions, we are delivering less. This will create the public perception that we are less effective or efficient with managing the funding

d)           tautoko / support a review on local board remuneration. Current demands on members who have delegations such as resource consent feedback put too much strain on our current role paid as ‘part time’.  This type of additional demand means that board members may not be as effective in all aspects of their role on behalf of their communities due to time constraints with needing other employment for income.  The geographical size of our board area also increases the time it takes to fulfil our role, due to longer travel times to attend meetings, community events or visit areas of community concerns

e)            tautoko / support increased influence over governing body decision-making.  However, we recognise there is often an imbalance of power for councillors representing rural communities in comparison to voting numbers of those who support urban concerns and priorities

f)             tautoko / support greater opportunities for local procurement in order to gain cost savings where possible and more responsive services

g)           not enough consideration is given for the geographical size of wards and subdivisions.  If total members were increased, or all board positions were full time then fairer representation may be achieved

Local board input to Auckland Council Submission on the draft Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024-34

 

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston, seconded by Member M Dennis:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)        provide / whakarite the following local views on the draft Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024-34 discussion document as per the feedback template provided to inform the council’s submission:

i)          strongly support the inclusion of the Northwest Alternative State highway (i.e., the Kumeῡ and Huapai bypass) as a Road of National Significance, however, express concern that there is no specific project delivery timeframe or funding allocated given the congestion in Kumeū, especially along State Highway 16, is gridlocked even during non-peak times, impacting businesses' productivity and residents' well-being therefore request this project be prioritised for early delivery

ii)         strongly support the Northwest Rapid Transport corridor as a major public transport project but are concerned this is still in the planning stage and there is no clear direction in the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 of how the delivery will be funded nor are there are any plans to extend the corridor to Kumeū

iii)        strongly support the inclusion of the new Warkworth to Wellsford State Highway as a Road of National Significance as this will increase the network's resilience against weather events and reduce death and serious injuries

iv)        express concern that new roads within greenfield developments in Auckland may no longer have walking, cycling, and bus lane provisions required and the cost to retrospectively upgrade to a multimodal network in the future will be prohibitive due to the cost; we have made these mistakes in the past, for example not including dedicated bus lanes in the North Western Motorway upgrades or not extending the Northern Busway to Silverdale when motorway extended

v)      support an increase in funding to improve the maintenance and resilience of our state highways and local roads noting Rodney roads have significantly deteriorated over the last three years due to deferred maintenance, a lack of funding for road sealing and rehabilitation and weather events

vi)     note to get Auckland moving and grow the city, it is crucial that there is an investment in public transport services to provide a reliable, frequent service with affordable fares; however, this is not supported by the proposed Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024, as public transport funding is significantly reduced.

 

 

 

MOVED by Member G Upson, seconded by Member C Smith and amendment by way of replacement:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)         request that specific provision is mentioned in the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 to allow Auckland Transport to receive Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency support on sealing the unsealed road network in Auckland without the existing restrictions currently limiting how many kilometres of road can be sealed on each road.

b)         request that specific provision is mentioned in the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 to fast track the funding for 4 lanes between Taupaki road roundabout and Brigham creek roundabout, but without speed bumps. This is a project that was originally supposed to be delivered but got cancelled under the previous government due to cost blow outs.

c)         support the proposed minimum requirements for Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency to ensure a 9 per cent resurfacing and 2 per cent rehabilitation of the state highway network and asks that priority be given to state highways in the Rodney area which have many areas of road surface overdue for rehabilitation and resurfacing. It is equally important for local roads and highways in the Rodney area, which qualify for Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency subsidies, to be prioritised for renewals and rehabilitation and safety improvements such as Audio Tactile Paint.

d)         support the statement on page 33 (statement of ministerial expectation) “work on programs which are not aligned with Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency’s core purposes or with the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 should be discontinued”.

e)         request that specific provision is mentioned in the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 to ensure police enforcement of speed limits through road works sites for the safety of road workers and enforcement of section 2.1 of “Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004”.

f)          support the proposed time of use charging to reduce congestion and maximise use of existing assets. But requests that the money collected from this to be ring fenced to provide Public Transport options, including suitable park and ride facilities, to provide alternatives to the roads with time of use charges.

g)         support the proposed allocations for walking and cycling where there is a benefit to safety, economic growth and reducing congestion.

h)         support the Quarterly reporting of Temporary Traffic Management Costs to ensure money isn’t wasted on unnecessary traffic management without compromising safety of road workers and road users.

i)          support the end to cross subsidisation using road user charges to fund non road related costs such as rail. Noting that there is separate funding categories for these other activities to ensure minimum targets for maintenance and capital investment are met in each category. Including 10 rail projects identified for crown funding on page 39 of the draft Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024.

j)          recommend replacing the word “rumble strips” with the word “Audio Tactile Paint” in paragraph 6 line 5 of page 19 of the draft Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 on transport which is under the heading “strategic Priority: Safety (page 18) and further recommends priority given to Audio Tactile Paint, Audio Tactile Paint being used on the centre line and not the outside of the road lane due to the requirement for some road users to cross over and/or drive to the left of the lane marker line which is the usual place for the Audio Tactile Paint to be installed.

k)         emphasize the importance of the two Road Of National Significance which are already long promised projects for the Rodney area including the State Highway 16 motorway extension to bypass Kumeū from Westgate to Waimauku and the State Highway 1 motorway extension to bypass the dome valley from Warkworth to Wellsford. Both projects will have safety benefits and economic benefits.

l)          support using the remainder of the Regional Fuel Tax to upgrade the intersection of east coast road and Glenvar road as mentioned on page 12. Whilst this is not within the Rodney Local Board area, this is a connecting road between Rodney and places of work or school for many Rodney residents. And improving this road will also help reduce congestion on State Highway 1 between Silverdale and Albany.

m)       support the North West Rapid Transport corridor as a major public transport corridor.

n)         express concern that large greenfield developments in Auckland may no longer have walking, cycling, and bus lane provisions required and the cost to retrospectively upgrade to a multi-modal network in the future will be prohibitive.

o)         express concern that this Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024 doesn’t support affordable fares for public transport due to the proposals to reduce funding and spread the costs differently between central government (National Land Transport Fund and crown funding), local government/ council and the patron of the service with increased “farebox recovery”.

p)         support the long term plan to shift from Fuel Excise Duty to Road User Charges as a fairer way to charge for motorists using the road.

q)         consider separating the police and the traffic police like the system New Zealand used to have with the ministry of transport. This way we can ensure traffic laws are enforced by specialist and highly trained traffic officers who have received specific advanced motor vehicle handling skills training and trained to understand traffic and driver behaviour.

Te Mōtini ā-Tukanga hei Kaupare i te Marea | Procedural motion to exclude the public

 

 

 

Resolution number RD/2024/34

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston, seconded by Member M Dennis:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)         exclude the public from the following part(s) of the proceedings of this meeting.

The general subject of each matter to be considered while the public is excluded, the reason for passing this resolution in relation to each matter, and the specific grounds under section 48(1) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 for the passing of this resolution follows.

 

This resolution is made in reliance on section 48(1)(a) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 and the particular interest or interests protected by section 6 or section 7 of that Act which would be prejudiced by the holding of the whole or relevant part of the proceedings of the meeting in public, as follows:

 

C1       Sites and Places of Significance to Mana Whenua - Tranche 2a Proposed Plan Change

Reason for passing this resolution in relation to each matter

Particular interest(s) protected (where applicable)

Ground(s) under section 48(1) for the passing of this resolution

The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

s7(2)(c)(i) - The withholding of the information is necessary to protect information which is subject to an obligation of confidence or which any person has been or could be compelled to provide under the authority of any enactment, where the making available of the information would be likely to prejudice the supply of similar information or information from the same source and it is in the public interest that such information should continue to be supplied.

 

s7(2)(c)(ii) - The withholding of the information is necessary to protect information which is subject to an obligation of confidence or which any person has been or could be compelled to provide under the authority of any enactment, where the making available of the information would be likely to damage the public interest.

 

In particular, the report contains mana whenua mātauranga (tribal knowledge) and names particular sites of cultural significance within the Auckland region. These site names and locations have been provided by mana whenua to the council project team in confidence and the ongoing supply of similar information to council is reliant on maintaining this relationship of confidence, until such time as any proposed plan change is endorsed by mana whenua and ready to publicly notify. The public release of the nominated sites ahead of detailed investigation could result in activities being undertaken on privately owned sites that might compromise their Māori cultural values, thereby diminishing their heritage value to the public and the relationship between Māori and their ancestral lands.

s48(1)(a) The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

 

 

C2       Holiday Parks update

Reason for passing this resolution in relation to each matter

Particular interest(s) protected (where applicable)

Ground(s) under section 48(1) for the passing of this resolution

The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

s7(2)(b)(ii) - The withholding of the information is necessary to protect information where the making available of the information would be likely unreasonably to prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied or who is the subject of the information.

 s7(2)(h) - The withholding of the information is necessary to enable the local authority to carry out, without prejudice or disadvantage, commercial activities.

The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

s48(1)(a) The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

The text of these resolutions is made available to the public who are present at the meeting and form part of the minutes of the meeting.

Local board Views on thirteen - Notices of Requirement from Auckland Transport and New Zealand Transport Agency for the Future Road Network in North Auckland

 

Member G Upson declared an interest in this item and took no part in the discussion or voting on this matter.

 

Alyson Pye - Senior Policy Planner, Andrew Wilkinson – Planning Consultant and Peter Vari – Team Leader Planning were in attendance for this item.

 

Resolution number RD/2024/37

MOVED by Member I Wagstaff, seconded by Deputy Chairperson L Johnston:  

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)         whakarite / provide the following local board views on thirteen Notices of Requirement for the North Auckland Road Network

i)                   acknowledges the importance of planning an integrated transport network for future greenfield developments, including providing a connected walking, cycling, and public transport network

ii)                 express concern that the lapse dates of up to 30 years for the Notice of Requirements are excessive as this will have significant social impacts on existing landowners, adjacent properties, and the Dairy Flat community as a whole and there could be reduced investment in homes, gradually deteriorating a well-established, well-maintained lifestyle community, this would significantly impact property which would  potentially place a massive contingent liability on Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency and Auckland Transport as effected landowners request early acquisition and with over 1000 effected properties that has not been adequately provided for

iii)               express concern that none of these projects are funded and are contrary to the draft Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2023, especially regarding the provision of light rail and separate walking and cycling facilities

iv)               express concern regarding the harmful effects of reduced investment in community facilities in Dairy Flat as a result of the Notice of Requirements; for example, the impact of Notice of Requirement 8 on the Dairy Flat Tennis Club, whose courts are funded and maintained by the community through fundraising and grants funding, which may result in difficulty raising future funds as the club may no longer be seen as a long-term investment, likewise the adjacent Dairy Flat Hall

v)                 express concern that the Assessment of Environmental Effects for Notice of Requirements 8 details the following: ’ The Tennis Club’s lease expires in 2032 and there will be a new lease with an early termination clause to provide for the future construction of Notice of Requirement 8’; however, this is a decision for the Rodney Local Board and no resolution or formal advice has been communicated about this proposal

vi)               express concern for the proposed route of the Rapid Transport Network (Notice of Requirement 1) as this will result in longer journey times for residents to stations at Milldale and Pine Valley (Notice of Requirements 2 and 3) than the alternative Rapid Transport Network adjacent to State Highway 1

vii)              express concern that detailed flood analysis is not occurring until the detailed design phase by which time designations will be ‘locked in’ and difficult to change to more climate-resilient locations

viii)            express concern regarding the flood hazards surrounding the Rapid Transport Network (Notice of Requirement 1) and associated stations (Notice of Requirements 2 and 3) limiting the availability of land suitable for housing within the walkable catchment zone including some land not be suitable/cost prohibitive for providing housing intensification

ix)                express concern that the location of the Rapid Transport Network stations (Notice of Requirements 1, 2 and 3), and the associated Dairy Flat town centres as proposed in the Spatial Land Use Strategy will be locked in before any detailed integrated stormwater catchment planning  is completed and therefore, it may be over 25 years before the full impacts of flood risk are known, resulting in considerable financial burden and uncertainty on existing landowners

x)                 express concern that several constraints within the proposed Rapid Transport Network and stations (Notice of Requirements 1 and 2, and 3), such as the challenging topography, fragmented land ownership, existing high-value dwellings, land/slope stability, and surrounding flood hazards come at a cost and may result in the project not being funded

xi)                express concern that some landowners did not receive notification that their properties were subject to a Notice of Requirement until December 2023, and Dairy Flat School was not considered a stakeholder in the early engagement process

b)      kopou / appoint a Local Board Member L Johnston to speak to the local board views at a hearing on the Notices of Requirement.

c)      tautapa / delegate authority to the chairperson of Rodney Local Board to make a replacement appointment in the event the local board member appointed in resolution b) is unable to attend the Notices of Requirements hearing.
