1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to seek the Committee’s recommendation that the Council adopt the Terms of Reference for Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee recommend that the Council:

1.         Adopt the Terms of Reference for Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee set out in Attachment A.

 

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee (the Committee) was established by resolution of the Council on 10 December 2015, and the Council resolved that the Committee not be discharged following the 2016 local body general elections.

3.2       Initially the Committee’s primary responsibilities were to assist in developing the Relationship Agreement between the Council and Ngā Papatipu Rūnanga, and developing a work program to give effect to the relationship. As no formal Terms of Reference had been developed for the Committee, these responsibilities effectively constituted de-facto Terms of Reference for the Committee in the short term.

3.3       In awareness of the need for more formal Terms of Reference to guide the Committee’s work over the longer term, the relationship agreement signed on 15 December 2016 contained the following clause: “A terms of reference will be developed and agreed to by each of the Parties within three months of this Agreement being signed.” The Agreement also stated that matters covered by the Terms of Reference should include delegations, resourcing and meeting frequency.

3.4       The proposed Terms of Reference are set out in Attachment A.

3.5       The proposal is for the Committee to primarily have powers to provide advice and recommendations to the Council. The Committee will also have oversight of, and receive regular updates from staff on, projects and other matters of significance to Māori.  

3.6       The meeting frequency will be quarterly, or otherwise as required.

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to provide the Committee with an overview of the changes to the Christchurch District Plan that impact on Maori Reserve land also known as Papakainga /Kainga Nohoanga. This is the result of the Independent Hearings Panel Decision 37.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee:

1.         Receive the information in the report.

2.         Note that Senior Planner Tanya Stevens from Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu (TRONT) is running workshops at each marae about the changes pertaining to each Rūnanga, and that the Principal Advisor Ngāi Tahu Relationships Gabrielle Huria is also available to attend on behalf of the Council.

3.         Note that Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and the Council plan to jointly produce a booklet explaining the changes for each reserve.

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       It is now easier to develop your land than under previous district plans if, you own land on one of the five Maori reserves within the Christchurch District.

3.2       The new provisions apply to Maori customary land, Maori freehold land, Maori land reserved for communal purposes. The new provisions apply to: Rapaki, Koukourarata, Wairewa, Ōpukutahi and Ōnuku.

3.3       There are fewer controls on development, for example there are no lot size rules (therefore cluster housing can be developed more easily), and a wider range of uses can be undertaken as a permitted activity including, hauora/ healthcare and hākinakina/ gym facilities, whare hoko/small scale retail, manuhiri noho/ visitor amenities, ahuwhenua/ farming and huawhenua/ horticulture and arumoni/ commercial services.

3.4       A possible example of permitted use could be: a group of whanau or a rūnanga decides to build on a block of land, with some communal gardens, kitchen facilities and hui spaces. Depending on how big the piece of land is, the development could include a corner shop, community hub, health centre and other small offices. Kaumatua flats could be built by the marae along with a kohanga reo or kura.

3.5       Attachment A is the Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu white paper which summarises what can be done on Maori land within Wairewa papakainga /kainga nohoanga zone. TRONT is producing summary papers for each of the five reserves and this information will form the basis of an information booklet. 500 copies will be produced with ten copies sent to each marae. The booklets will also be added to the Council website and internal online Hub to help educate Council staff.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee to be updated about the work programme as agreed at the meeting 1 September 2016.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being provided to fulfil Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee Resolution THCP/2016/00013.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision in this report is low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessing the impact against the criteria in the Policy. Relative to all Council decision- making, the decision required in low significance. However it is very important in signalling the commitment to the relationship between the Council and Papatipu Rūnanga.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee:

1.         Receives the progress report on the work programme.

2.         Requests Council staff to continue to progress the priority areas identified in the work programme.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       In alignment with the work programme, the Māori Relationships team continues to focus on the three key priority areas, namely, improving water quality, identifying opportunities for developing the Canterbury tribal economy and enabling wider use of Māori reserve land.

4.2       Internally we have also focussed on both staff and elected members growing their understanding of Māori tikanga and culture.

 

5.   Context/Background

Work to date

5.1       Within the reporting period we have achieved or contributed to the following :

5.1.1   Improving Water Quality

Currently there are two important water issues that are of interest to Te Hononga.  They are the Akaroa Wastewater Scheme and the Stormwater 35 Year Global Consent.  The Ngāi Tahu Relationship team is working with Council colleagues,  Mahaanui and Ngā Rūnanga. The issues are complex and the more work is required in investigating solutions that are acceptable to all parties. All parties are in agreement that water quality across the district needs to improve.

(i)     Akaroa Wastewater Scheme

The Council plans to build a $33m wastewater treatment scheme and has to find somewhere to put the treated wastewater. The current consent expires in 2020. Previously the Council tried to get a resource consent to build a new pipe outfall to Akaroa Harbour and discharge treated wastewater.  However, this was declined, on the grounds that the discharge was offensive to Ngāi Tahu and because the Hearing Commissioners considered that alternatives to the discharge to the harbour had not been adequately investigated.  

Over the past two years the Council has been exploring alternatives to a harbour outfall with the Ngāi Tahu parties and more recently also with the community.

In January, Friends of Banks Peninsula produced a ‘community strategy’ that they considered an acceptable solution for Akaroa's wastewater.  In response to this the Banks Peninsula Community Board established the Akaroa Treated Wastewater Reuse Options Working Party to assist the Council in investigating and consulting on the options for the beneficial reuse of Akaroa's treated wastewater.  The working party is made up of community members from Takamatua, Robinsons Bay and Pompeys Pillar, representatives from Ōnuku Rūnanga and Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata, Banks Peninsula Community Board members and the Banks Peninsula Councillor.

There are four options being considered:

1.      Beneficial reuse of reclaimed water for irrigation of trees or pasture at Takamatua

2.      Beneficial reuse of reclaimed water for irrigation of trees or pasture at Robinsons Bay

3.      Beneficial reuse of reclaimed water for irrigation of trees or pasture at Pompey’s Pillar

4.      Disposal via a new outfall pipeline to the mid harbour (being the one applied for).

The Council will be undertaking a public consultation process in April that will finish in time for it to consider submissions and make a decision on its selected option and present that to the Environment Court in June.

(ii)    The Stormwater 35 Year Global Consent

The Council is scheduled to meet with kaitiaki rūnanga representatives on 9 March and a verbal update will be made at the meeting.

5.1.2   Other Water Issues

(i)     Wairewa Bridge Build

Wairewa Runanga, in partnership with Christchurch City Council, has obtained Resource Consents for the management of Te Roto o Wairewa / Lake Forsyth (“the Lake”) by using the canal at the southern end of the lake.

In order to address the public concern relating to loss of access between Birdlings Flat and Bossu Road across the beach, Wairewa Rūnanga has obtained resource consent to construct a bridge across the canal.  This bridge will be funded by the partnership of Wairewa Rūnanga and Christchurch City Council.

The projected cost for construction of the bridge is between $450,000.00 and $550,000.00. A Memorandum of Understanding between the parties regarding the costs of construction, executed prior to the Resource Consent, records that Council will contribute $200,000.00 towards the cost of construction (from the endowment fund generated from Reserve 3185 and Reserve 3586) and the Rūnanga will contribute $150,000.00. As this is short of the projected cost the Rūnanga is seeking extra funding from third parties.

(ii)    Wairewa Reserve 3185 Purchase

The Wairewa Rūnanga is presently preparing an offer to purchase Reserve 3185 from Christchurch City Council.  Section 21(4)(b) of the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1955 specifies that “Reserve 3185 shall be held upon trust for the purposes of enabling the Corporation to erect drainage works by which the annually recurring losses and injury caused by the flood waters of Lake Forsyth may be prevented.”

The Rūnanga consider that this purpose is sufficiently addressed by the construction of a canal through the beach between Bossu Road and Birdings Flat.

The Rūnanga has engaged a valuer to provide a valuation of the Reserve land. Once this has been provided the Rūnanga will submit a formal offer to the Council. CCC legal services staff have advised that this process, from initiation to completion of sale, could take up to two years as it has to be recorded in the Council’s long term plan.

Once the Rūnanga has the valuation to hand they will be in a position to present the formal offer to Council, which should be early March.

5.1.3   Opportunities for Developing the Canterbury Tribal Economy – Progress on the Christchurch Dollar

Te Hononga has previously discussed, and expressed interest in, the concept of a community currency within the region. Within the Council this interest has been “sponsored” by Councillor Raf Manji.  An initial working group was formed in late 2015 and undertook some investigation.  This work was recommenced in the latter part of 2016.

Further investigation has been undertaken, including a more comprehensive literature review.

Whilst early discussion centred on ideas similar to existing schemes in New Zealand, such as the Lyttelton Timebank, or the Green Currency in the Wairarapa, the focus of recent investigations has been on a community/civic currency of a more formal and larger scale basis.  The example being focussed on is the Bristol Pound.  Please refer to Attachment A for details of this scheme.

It is now proposed to have an initial workshop, including some presentations and discussions on how to proceed.  This is tentatively scheduled for 12 or 19 April, dependant on the availability of key presenters/attendees from the UK and central government.

As a result of the potential scale and scope being considered, and the issues raised to date, the aim is to have workshop attendees not only from key interested parties, such as Council and Te Hononga, but also key regulatory agencies.  Many of the issues initially identified include regulatory items. 

Agencies previously approached are being followed up, including:

1.    Reserve Bank of NZ (Head of Currency)

2.    Treasury (Chief Economist and Deputy Secretary)

3.    Local Government New Zealand

4.    Co-op Money NZ/Credit Unions/Credit Unions/Building Societies.

Following the workshop, and dependent on its outcomes, the next step might be to proceed to an initial feasibility paper, potentially involving both Ngāi Tahu and Council.

5.1.4   Use of Māori Reserve Land

See item 8 of this agenda – Building Within the Papakainga Nohoanga Zone.

5.1.5   Update on other activities

·     Te Reo for Elected Members – a weekly Te Reo Māori class has been established.  The learning outcome is that each elected member is able to use basic greetings, mihimihi and sing three Council waiata.

·     Understanding Ngāi Tahu for Elected Members – one session has been delivered.

·     Waitangi Day - Tuahiwi Marae hosted a citizenship ceremony for 50 new citizens and their whanau – 150 in total.  This was a joint venture between Waimakariri District Council and Christchurch City Council.

·     Clinics with Staff - As a measure to manage the many requests to attend meetings, the Ngāi Tahu Relationship team hold two-hour clinics every Tuesday where staff can come with their requests for advice or information.

·     Mahaanui Agreement - This agreement has been signed with the intention of both parties working together to develop a more purpose driven agreement for the 2017/2018 year.

·     Te Hononga Relationship Agreement - signed copies of the agreement have been sent to each Rūnanga.

·     Blessings and sod turnings – staff continue to lead ceremonial blessings,  sod turnings and welcome on sites where the Council building or repairing facilities and open space. On average there at least one event per week.

·     Tuia Rangatahi Leadership Programme – Tuia is a nationwide leadership programme for Māori youth that aims to encourage rangatahi to participate in civic society, grow their networks and benefit from a year’s mentoring with the Mayor.  Mentoring sessions with the Mayor take place on a monthly basis, involving both informal meetings and participation at formal occasions such as the citizenship ceremonies or Te Hononga meetings.  The relationship aims to provide both parties with the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into inter-generational issues, cultural values and experiences.

Selected rangatahi will be expected to undertake a 100hr community contribution project in their respective communities.

Rangatahi will also attend five wānanga in different parts of the country over the year to build networks, obtain support and receive exposure to a diverse range of people from across the country.  The Senior Advisor accompanies the rangatahi to these wānanga.
