2.1         Request for a Referendum - Presentation from Mr Rob Paterson, Citizens Advocacy Tauranga; Mr Richard Prince, Welcome Bay Rating Advocates; and Mr Philip Brown, Papamoa Residents/Ratepayers Association

 

A copy of Mr Brown’s presentation for this item can be viewed on Tauranga City Council’s website in the Minutes Attachments document for this council meeting.

 

Attachment

1          Presentation - Mr Philip Brown

 

Key points

Mr Richard Prince

·                The Residents Perception Monitor survey saw satisfaction drop from 66% to 47%.

·                Requested a zero rates increase for both residential and commercial rates.

·                Acknowledged that these were challenging times – not business as usual.

Mr Rob Paterson

·                Mr Paterson spoke on behalf of the resident and ratepayer groups listed in the referendum request.

·                Requested that the proposed compulsory rubbish/recycling collection project be abandoned.

·                Suggested that this was not the time to place extra burden on ratepayers.

 

Mr Philip Brown

·                Mr Brown’s presentation outlined the results from online residents’ polls taken over the last six weeks.  The referendum was requested on the basis of these results.

·                It was a time of economic uncertainty for all.

·                Tauranga city rates were amongst the highest in the country.

·                The percentage increase in rates would be considerably more if the cost of the proposed rubbish/recycling collection was added.

 

In response to questions

·                It was acknowledged that a residential/commercial rates differential would be acceptable on the basis that businesses were able to claim back some expenses and GST whilst this option was not available to residents.

·                There were a number of residents who managed their own rubbish and recycling and did not use the current rubbish and recycling options.  These residents would be disadvantaged by any compulsory rubbish/recycling scheme.

The Mayor thanked Messrs Prince, Paterson and Brown for their presentations.

 

 

 

2.2         Mr Grant Pegler – Planting in the West Palm Beach section of Te Ara o Wairakei

Key points

·                Mr Pegler spoke on behalf of the Papamoa Residents and Ratepayers Association and in support of the Notice of Motion from Crs Steve Morris and Dawn Kiddie.

·                This section of the West Palm Beach waterway was the only dedicated park in the area.

·                Grassed slopes where people could relax and picnic were preferred over the current three metre strips of tussock grass on both sides of the waterway.

·                Requested that the plantings be removed and the grassed slopes be reinstated.

·                Challenged that the planting was a condition of the resource consent and believed the resource consent had not been implemented properly.

·                People in the area did not believe adequate consultation had been undertaken and that the consultation that had occurred was imbalanced towards tangata whenua.

 

In response to questions

·                Other plant options and where these might be located would not be considered as the desired outcome was for no plantings at all.

The Mayor thanked Mr Pegler for his presentation.

 

 

3            Acceptance of Late Items

Resolution  CO9/20/21

Moved:       Cr Larry Baldock

Seconded:  Cr Tina Salisbury

It was further agreed that for item 1.10 – Te Ara O Wairakei Landscape Plan, the report would be discussed but the recommendations would lie on the table pending the discussion and decisions of item 10.2 – Notice of Motion.  The recommendations of item 1.10 – Te Ara O Wairakei Landscape Plan, would then be considered.

 

6            Confirmation of Minutes

Nil 

7            Declaration of Conflicts of Interest

Crs Andrew Hollis and Dawn Kiddie requested that it be brought to the notice of this Council meeting that they were both members of the Mount Maunganui Ratepayers Association, with Cr Hollis being the Chairperson of the Association, but had taken no part in the referendum poll referred to in the Public Forum section and in item 10.1 - Request for public-initiated referendum, of this meeting.

1.10       Chief Executive Report

Staff          Christine Jones, General Manager: Strategy and Growth

 

Key points

·                The Strategic Finance Project (SAP) ‘Go Live’ date had been delayed due to impacts of COVID-19.

·                Staff continued to work through requests for rent relief.

·                The New Zealand Local Government Funding Agency (LGFA) was proposing to increase debt-to-revenue limits for the 2020/21 and 2021/22 financial years.  The proposed changes would be considered in June.

·                Annual Plan hearings and deliberations had been placed on hold.  A further round of consultation may be required.

·                A report on the costing options to remedy the seismic strength deficiencies of the Harington Street Transport Hub would be presented to Council in June.

·                An update report on the kerbside waste collection services and facilities Request for Proposal (RFP) would be presented to the first Projects, Services and Operations Committee meeting when Council’s normal meeting schedule resumed.

·                Viable operating models for Our Place would now be reported through the Annual Plan service review process.

·                Preferred parties identified from the Registrations of Interest for the former Bella Vista site had now been provided with Council’s RFP.  The deadline for submissions was 11 June 2020.

·                A preliminary design for the Cameron Road short-term multi-modal project would be presented to Council in July.

 

In response to questions

·                Tauranga City Council’s (TCC) vermicomposting trial had currently diverted 25% of TCC’s biosolids from landfill.  The trial has also saved approximately 8.5% in disposal costs to landfill to date.

·                The free school bus service was funded by Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BOPRC) through a targeted rate.

·                Service costs for the proposed kerbside waste collection service had not yet been determined.

·                The role of the Waste Project Advisory Board was not necessarily to solve problems or be subject matter experts but to have a good breadth of input as to the risks that the project could encounter.

·                A virtual building inspections trial was underway.  Only low risk inspections were currently part of the trial.  The trial outcomes would be reported back to Council.

·                The Mayor and Councillors Register of Interests would be available on TCC’s website by the end of the week.

 

Resolution  CO9/20/22

Moved:       Cr John Robson

Seconded:  Cr Tina Salisbury

That the Council receives the Chief Executive Report.

Carried

 

10.1       Request for public-initiated referendum

Staff           Christine Jones, General Manager: Strategy and Growth

Paul Davidson, General Manager: Corporate Services

 

Key points

·                The referendum was seeking a review of the recommended 7.6% rate increase.

·                There were legal considerations under the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) that Council needed to take into account when considering the referendum.

 

In response to questions

·                It was unlikely that feedback from the referendum, if initiated, would be available prior to rating levels decisions for the 2020/21 financial year being made.

·                In regards to pre-determination principles, all councillors that had issued or made any statements around rates increases would need to keep open minds during any Annual Plan deliberations.

·                Scenarios and options that could be implemented, and their impact on rating levels, could be included in consultation documentation if a second round of Annual Plan consultation occurred.

 

Discussion points raised

·                It was important to listen to the requests of ratepayers.

·                Council was currently dealing with changing information all the time due to COVID-19 and this would make decision making difficult.

Motion 

Moved:       Cr Larry Baldock

Seconded:  Cr Kelvin Clout

That the Council:

(a)     Receives this report Request for public-initiated referendum; and

(b)     Declines the proposal for a public-initiated referendum on the basis that this gives rise to significant legal and timing issues around adopting an annual plan, and is unnecessary given legislative consultation obligations Council is required to follow.

 

Amendment

Moved:       Cr John Robson

Seconded:  Cr Steve Morris

That the Council:

(c)     Requests staff to report on the specific issues and options raised by the petitioners for possible inclusion in the Annual Plan consultation material.

 

The Amendment was adopted by the mover and seconder.

 

The substantive motion, as amended, was then put.

 

Resolution  CO9/20/23

Moved:       Cr Larry Baldock

Seconded:  Cr Kelvin Clout

(a)     Receives this report Request for public-initiated referendum; and

(b)     Declines the proposal for a public-initiated referendum on the basis that this gives rise to significant legal and timing issues around adopting an annual plan, and is unnecessary given legislative consultation obligations Council is required to follow.

(c)     Requests staff to report on the specific issues and options raised by the petitioners for possible inclusion in the Annual Plan consultation material.

Carried

 

 

At 10.50am, the meeting adjourned.

 

At 11.00am, the meeting resumed.

 

 

Staff presented the following item and discussion took place to enable a decision to be made on the Notice of Motion received.  The recommendations of this item were left to lie on the table until following the Notice of Motion decision.

 

1.10       Te Ara O Wairakei Landscape Plan

Staff                Nic Johansson, General Manager: Infrastructure

                        Wally Potts, Team Leader: Drainage Services

 

A copy of the tabled document – Stage 1 Wairakei Stream Landscape Plan Consultation Timeline - can be viewed on Tauranga City Council’s website in the Minutes Attachments document for this council meeting.

 

Attachment

1          Stage 1 Wairakei Stream Landscape Plan Consultation Timeline

 

Key points

·                Council holds a resource consent to address the management and discharge of treated stormwater in the Papamoa catchment.  As a consent condition, a final Stage 1 plan was lodged with BOPRC in December 2017.  Full implementation of Stage 1 was required by 2025.

·                Stage 1 refers to the geographical location of the stream corridor and extends approximately 10kms from Pacific View Road to the boundary of Te Tumu.

·                The specific area of residents’ concerns was within the Palm Beach West reserve from Bermuda Drive to Palm Beach Boulevard.

·                Significant consultation was undertaken during plan development and before and during its implementation.

·                Consultation with Tangata Whenua representatives was to ascertain cultural values for the corridor and facilitate the development and implementation of cultural elements.

·                The engagement process was not continued during the year that plants were being propagated.

·                When planting started, in response to concerns raised by residents and their request that planting be stopped, Council halted the planting programme.

·                There would be no further planting until mid-2021; however maintenance would continue.

·                Further consultation would be undertaken during that period and this would be reported back to Council.

 

In response to questions

·                Minor changes could be considered under the resource consent, including open water areas.

·                Riparian planting improved water quality as well as improved the aesthetics and amenity value.

·                Various plants were used in riparian planting, but predominately wetland style plants that could cope with “wet feet”.

·                Plants around the water margins would only be 600 – 800mm in height.  Taller flax species would not be planted in these areas.

·                Algae bloom did occur, particularly during periods of low rainfall.

·                Most stormwater ponds being developed now were fully planted by developers before these were handed over to Council.

·                Weeds that had occurred between plantings were currently being brought under control.

·                Targeted consultation with Tangata Whenua was appropriate.

·                An application for a variation to the resource consent would be a significant piece of work over a couple of years.

 

The Recommendations for this item were left to lie on the table until after a decision on the Notice of Motion was taken.

 

 

 

10.2       Notice of Motion: West Palm Beach section of Te Ara o Wairakei

The Notice of Motion was introduced by Cr Steve Morris.

 

Key points

·                Te Ara o Wairakei had been a good project overall for the Papamoa waterways.  Many of the areas had been enhanced but there were issues with the 500m stretch that was the subject of the Notice of Motion.

·                There was a strong sense of community ownership of the waterways.

·                Once size fits all did not work for the whole of the 10km stream.

·                Consultation had happened but an overwhelming number of people felt they have not been consulted with.

·                This was an opportunity for enhanced community engagement – for them to drive the solutions that all interested parties would be looking for and be happy with.

 

In response to questions

·                The cost of a resource consent variation would be no less than $250k as best guess based on previous experience.

 

Discussion points raised

·                There was a lot of misinformation available in the community.

·                A resource consent variation would incur considerable cost and require city-wide consultation.

·                Nature had to be taken into consideration.  This was a biodiversity corridor which could not be broken in the middle.

·                Riparian planting made a difference to water quality and was required to maintain that water quality.

·                A project advisory panel with expert independent participation would have been helpful.

 

Resolution  CO9/20/24

Moved:       Cr Steve Morris

Seconded:  Cr Dawn Kiddie

That the Council:

(a)     Receives the Notice of Motion;

(b)     Consults with residents of Palm Beach West and Tangata Whenua on reinstating and enhancing this section of Te Ara o Wairakei;

(c)     Reports the results of said consultation to the Projects, Services and Operations Committee;

(d)     Undertakes no further planting in Palm Beach until this matter has been reported back to the committee;

(e)     Continues to engage with the community on Te Ara o Wairakei project moving forward.

 

In Favour:       Mayor Tenby Powell, Crs Kelvin Clout, Bill Grainger, Andrew Hollis, Dawn Kiddie, Steve Morris and Tina Salisbury

Against:           Crs Larry Baldock, Jako Abrie, Heidi Hughes and John Robson

Carried

 

 

1.10       Te Ara O Wairakei Landscape Plan

Resolution  CO9/20/25

Moved:       Cr Larry Baldock

Seconded:  Cr John Robson

That the Council:

(a)     Receives and accepts this report

(b)     Endorses continued engagement with residents in the Palm Beach West area and the wider community until such time as a further update on the project is received from staff in mid-2021.  The objective of continued engagement will be to consult as per the Notice of Motion resolution and also to consult on development of a plan for planting the Palm Beach West reserve area that meets the requirements of the resource consent and the expectations of the community.  This engagement will be carried out under advisement of the Project Engagement Specialist and will utilise a combination of the methods previously used to date.

10.3       Proposed Elizabeth Street Upgrade

Staff                Christine Jones, General Manager: Strategy and Growth

Gareth Wallis, General Manager: Community Services

Doug Spittle, Team Leader: Urban Places

Ana Hancock, Urban Spaces Project Lead

External         Travis Wooller, Isthmus Group

 

A copy of the staff presentation for this item can be viewed on Tauranga City Council’s website in the Minutes Attachments document for this council meeting.

 

Also included in the Minutes Attachments is the tabled item – Letter to Brett Nicolls regarding Farmers Development Agreement.

 

Attachments

1        Presentation - Elizabeth Street Upgrade

2        Letter - to Brett Nicholls regarding Farmers Development Agreement

 

Key points

·                Three options – A, B and C – were presented.

·                Public consultation results were included in Attachments 3 and 4.

·                Feedback preference was for Option B.

·                Option B can be completed prior to the Farmers opening day planned for April 2021.

·                All options reduced parking on Elizabeth Street, but no change to parking on Devonport Road.  The Farmers development would increase carparks by 69 on what was already provided for pre-development.

·                Budgets did not include water and wastewater infrastructure replacement which would occur prior to streetscape changes.

 

In response to questions

·                Future development of Option A would require some elements to be removed; Option B was compatible for extension without the need to remove anything; a do minimum option would be compatible for future development but would require further cost.

·                More investigation in to the underground infrastructure had occurred in comparison to Durham Street.  The cost for water/wastewater replacement was estimated at $2.4 million.  The cost of the infrastructure replacement would come from a different programme of work.

·                The rates take for the new Farmers development was estimated to be over $700,000.  This would be a re-apportionment of rates but the Farmers site would pick up a greater portion than the original site as it would have a higher capital value.

·                The options put forward for public consultation reflected the best estimated level of investment that could be delivered by Council.

·                The Farmers development had not indicated a preferred option; however they did prefer that any work undertaken be completed by their opening day.

·                Option B did not include any changes to the roundabouts as these changes could not be completed within the timeframe.

·                The cost for just the laneway and re-instatement of the existing streetscape was estimated at $1.08 million.

·                The Farmers group expectation was that any enhancements made to the laneway and streetscape would be in keeping with their development.

·                Safety enhancements and improvement assessments were predictive, and did not only look at historical data.

·                During the engagement planning process, Council was interested in obtaining the views of city centre office workers as well as adjacent business.  The Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BOPRC) offices were included as they had offices on Elizabeth Street.  It was important to note that any feedback received was from staff and not the BOPRC.

·                A five month construction timeline had been assigned to both options A and B.  Council would have greater confidence regarding timeframes when a contractor was in place.  Farmers did not yet have an updated timeframe following COVID and were still working toward the April 2021 timeframe.

·                The consultation process had been partly carried out during the COVID lockdown.  Reconsulting with retailers and businesses in the area on the proposed streetscape, to see if their views had changed due to COVID, could hold up the decisions on the project which were required now to make deadlines.  Ongoing consultation would continue regardless of the option chosen.

·                Funding opportunities from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) were limited.  NZTA provided TCC $1.5 million per year for minor safety improvements to be spent at Council’s discretion (which included 30 to 40 projects across the city).  The Standard Safety Improvements Fund was already fully subscribed within the current National Land Transport Plan (NLTP).  This fund would not be available again until after the review of the NLTP in 2021.

In response to questions

·               One of the key changes included that anyone riding a transport device on a footpath must give way to pedestrians.
