Reports from Regulatory Committee held 30 April 2019

 

1.    Earthquake-Prone Buildings - Identification of Priority Buildings - Consultation

Type of Report:

Legal

Legal Reference:

Building Act 2004

Document ID:

726241

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Malcolm Smith, Manager Building Consents

 

1.1   Purpose of Report

To advise Council of the requirements under the Building Act 2004 in relation to the identification of priority buildings under the earthquake-prone building legislation, and to seek approval to release the draft Statement of Proposal for public submissions prior to adoption by Council.

 

 

At the Māori Consultative Committee meeting

It was advised that there is a legislative requirement to have a Policy in place, and Council is consulting on the Statement of Proposal for this Policy. There are implication for building owners, as once a building has been identified as earthquake prone they have seven years within which to strengthen or demolish it.

The criteria for the buildings considered ‘high priority’ are outlined in the Statement of Proposal (refer p9 of the agenda). Maraenui is not currently considered a high risk area as there are not believed to be high numbers of unreinforced masonry buildings. However the public are able to submit if they believe that there are other areas that should be included as higher risk/ priority.

 

 

Māori Consultative Committee's recommendation

That the Council resolve that the Committee’s recommendation be adopted.

Officer’s Recommendation

The Regulatory Committee:

a.     Approve the release of the draft Statement of Proposal for public submissions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.    Street Naming - 250 Guppy Road Taradale Napier

Type of Report:

Procedural

Legal Reference:

N/A

Document ID:

723801

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Paul O'Shaughnessy, Team Leader Resource Consents

 

2.1   Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is to obtain Councils approval for one new street name to replace a previously approved street name within the recently approved residential subdivisions at 250 Guppy Road. The street in question has already been subject to a previous street name approval by Council (Chue Court), however a mistake by the developer has led to a request for a re-naming to Gee Place.

 

 

At the Māori Consultative Committee meeting DECISION OF COUNCIL

It was noted that this was a Decision of Council at the Committee meeting as there was a tight timeline with regards to the issuing of titles; the name change merely reflected the actual preferred and regularly used surname of the family who the street name recognises.

 

Māori Consultative Committee's recommendation

That the Council resolve that the Committee’s recommendation be adopted.

 

 

Council Resolution

Councillors Brosnan / Hague

That Council:

a.     Approve one new street name at 250 Guppy Road as follows:

·      Gee Place-250 Guppy Road

Type of Report:

Operational

Legal Reference:

N/A

Document ID:

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Sera Chambers, Transportation Team Administrator

1.1   Purpose of Report

To seek approval for the proposed course change and proposed road closures for the Iron Māori event to be held in 2019 and future years.

 

At the Māori Consultative Committee meeting DECISION OF COUNCIL

It was noted that the event route for Iron Māori has been similar for a number of years, and the event organisers are refreshing the course, both as a follow up to learnings from the 2018 and to provide competitors with a revitalised experience. It is expected that there will be approximately 2000 competitors across the four events of Iron Māori, accompanied by whanau and support crews. The event contributes approximately $900k in economic benefit to Napier and the region. As well as directly quantifiable economic benefits there are significant social and wellbeing implications from the fitness participation and social cohesion which contribute to the positive impact of the event.

 

Māori Consultative Committee's recommendation

That the Council resolve that the Committee’s recommendation be adopted.

 

Council Resolution

Councillors Price / Boag

That Council:

a.     Note the proposed course change and road closures for the Iron Māori event and other events.

b.     Approve the road closures noting that the event traffic management plan may be modified to account for feedback obtained through the targeted consultation by the event management.
