4.   Deputations by Appointment

Part B

4.1       Update on Port Issues – Lyttelton Port Company

 

Kim Kelleher, Environmental Manager, and John O’Dea, Development Manager, from the Lyttelton Port Company (LPC),  gave the Board a general update on Port issues including the following:

             Ÿ    progress on the consent for dredging the harbour channel

             Ÿ    a social impact study on cruise ships returning to Lyttelton Harbour which would be presented to Council in the near future.

             Ÿ    plans for a general tidy up at the ferry terminal.

             Ÿ    plans to provide information to the Lyttelton Reserve Management Committee regarding the land adjacent to Urumau Reserve.

             Ÿ    a significant increase in trade at the port since the Kaikoura earthquakes.

             Ÿ    development of the Te Ana Marina and facilities.

             Ÿ    location of fisheries facilities within the port.

             Ÿ    public information sessions hosted by LPC

In reply to a question from the Board, Ms Kelleher indicated that LPC was supportive of the Seafarers Mission and the New Zealand government’s commitment to the Maritime Labour Convention.  The Board was concerned that the present Seafarers Centre in Lyttelton was on a borrowed site.  Members wanted to see an increase in the opening hours for the centre and if possible to find it a permanent site.

The Board raised the issue of Council land (stopped road) which was sold in 2011 to LPC for the specific purpose of building a fish processing factory.  As yet the land had not been used for that purpose and the Board was concerned that the area could be alienated from public use in the future.  Mr O’Dea explained that the original plans for the area did not eventuate and he noted that LPC was continuing to allow public access.  The Board expressed an interest in the Council repurchasing the land to ensure public access continued.

 The Board thanked Ms Kelleher and Mr O’Dea for attending the meeting and for the updates and positive developments.   The deputation undertook to provide a copy of the Marine Pollution Response Plan for Lyttelton Harbour to the Board.

 

 

 

4.2       Submission to Annual Plan – Boat Security and Safety Association

 

James Ensor addressed the Board on behalf of  the Boat Security and Safety Association.  He was accompanied by Rob Eaton from Ocel, Roger Allan and Eden Husband.  Mr Ensor explained that the Association is seeking the Board’s support for a submission it is making to the Council’s Annual Plan, for improvements to boat security and safety at Naval Point, Lyttelton.

Mr Ensor presented a plan to the Board to outline the proposed improvements.  He noted that the project has been ongoing for many years and the Association was anxious to begin work.  He did not believe that the proposed safety improvements would jeopardise other plans for development at Naval Point.  The Board thanked the deputation for persevering with the issue for so long.

Community Board Resolved BKCB/2017/00055

Part B

That the Banks Peninsula Community Board:

1.         Refer the issues raised by the deputation to the Naval Point Development Team  to urgently  discuss with the Boat Security and Safety Association and report back to the Board.

2.         Thanks Mr Ensor for his deputation.

Felix Dawson/Jed O'Donoghue                                                                                                                             Carried

 

4.3       Request for gifting land – Lyttelton Historical Museum Society

 

Peter Rough and Therese Angelo of the Lyttelton Historical Museum Society spoke to the Board regarding a request for the Council to gift land at 33 London Street to the Society.

They reported that the society has sufficient funds to hire an architect to bring the project to the consent stage.  In addition they have also completed rigorous research into the proposed site and other potential sites, including preparing a SWOT analysis of each.

Mr Rough noted that the Society had received letters of support from the Lyttelton Information Centre and the Lyttelton Harbour Business Association for the new Museum to be built on the proposed site.

In reply to a question Mr Rough said that if the proposed site was not gifted it would lead to significant delays in the project, increased costs and a resulting lower outcome for the community. 

The Board thanked Mr Rough and Ms Angelo for their deputation.
