7.   Verbal Updates to the Zone Committee

 

The Committee received verbal updates by:

·    Tim Joyce updated the meeting on the Port Hills fire recovery work that included sediment control and planting, completed aerial seeding of grasses and silt control.  A funding request would be sought from the Christchurch City Council for the recovery.  Contestable funding could potentially be administered by ECan and the Zone Committee.

8.        Glyphosate use by Christchurch City Council

Reference:

17/602052

Contact:

Diane Shelander

diane.shelander@ccc.govt.nz

941 8304

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       This report is to provide an overview of the use of Glyphosate and the Council’s pest plan management practices.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Christchurch West Melton Water Management Zone Committee:

2.1       Receive the information in the report.

 

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       Background

3.1.1   Staff in various teams of Council, and contractors under their direction, have been active in controlling pest plants in Christchurch’s parks, waterways and road network for many years.  The Christchurch City Council owns and manages around 97 Regional Parks (6750ha), 51 Garden and Heritage Parks (70ha) and 900 Neighbourhood and Sports Parks (including cemeteries) (2096ha).

3.1.2   Additionally, pest plant control occurs in and along waterways, road networks, around infrastructure and on other land owned by Council. Most of the pest plant control is undertaken to protect high biodiversity values, which occur predominately in Regional Parks and along waterways, but includes amenity pests and those with public health risk.

3.1.3   The Council has obligations under the Regional Pest Management Strategy to control a number of pest species, such as nassella, gorse and broom.  The Council’s Operational Pest Plant Plan also identifies a number pf pest plant species for which control programmes are undertaken, including phragmites, spartina, purple loosestrife, smilax, boneseed, yellow flag and sycamore amongst 15 or so plant species.

3.2       Glyphosate use reduction

3.2.1   In March 2016 the Council resolved to:

·   Consult with the public via the Draft Annual Plan Consultation Process on its proposal and the other options, including the proposed change to the maintenance and capital budgets required.

·   Request staff continue investigations into alternative methodologies for open space management and report back to Council within two years.

3.2.2   In April and May 2016 the Council consulted on the use of Glyphosate through its draft 2016-2017 Annual Plan consultation. 

3.2.3   The Council’s 2016 Annual Plan was adopted in June 2016, and included ‘some limited provision for alternative weed control treatment ($2 million)’.


 

3.3       Council plant pest control

3.3.1   The Parks Unit undertook an initial change to the Neighbourhood and Regional Parks budgets to add $200,000 for the Neighbourhood Parks Glyphosate Reduction and Regional Parks Glyphosate Reduction packages effective August 2016.

3.3.2   This was followed by a subsequent addition of $1.7million in December 2016 for a suite of projects:

3.3.2.1  Cemeteries Glyphosate Reduction.

3.3.2.2  Garden and Heritage Parks Glyphosate Reduction

3.3.2.3  Sport Parks Glyphosate Reduction

3.3.2.4  Neighbourhood Parks Glyphosate Reduction

3.3.2.5  Regional Parks Glyphosate Reduction

3.3.3   In addition to the budget allocation and creation of new projects for the reduction of Glyphosate, the Council Parks Unit also developed a Glyphosate request form (see Attachment A) for use in public spaces maintained by that Unit.  Use of Glyphosate has been limited to sites closed to the public and for the control of pest plants where no other method is practicable.  Approval for Glyphosate use must be obtained from the relevant Team Leader or Contract Manager.

3.3.4   The land drainage operations and maintenance programme uses Glyphosate where and when other methods are not appropriate.  For example, mechanical weed removal can adversely affect bank stability allowing sediment to run into the adjacent water body.  Where ‘weed whacking’ can be effective, and not affect bank stability, this method is used.  The alternative fatty acid-based herbicide is not registered for use in or near water bodies and is therefore not used in applicable locations.

3.3.5   Additional information about Glyphosate use and Council weed control is provided in Attachment B.

Regional Committee – Lance Kenyon

 

The Regional Committee meeting 13 June

Discussion was focused around the top 10 difficult regional CWMS targets and providing input for the report.  Expected completion by August for presentation to the Mayoral forum 25 Aug.

Zones and working group updates - of particular note were:  updates to regional communication plan; 

·    update on www.canterburywater.org.nz with short video and information; 

·    Map of Enviro schools within our Zone; and,

·    Stage 1 Report from Havelock North drinking water incident.   Stage 2 expected to be completed by Dec 17.

Selwyn-Waihora ZC is hosting 7 seminars at Lincoln University (starting next week) around water issues.  See attached snapshot or visit facebook page.

 

Presentation - River and Lake swimming in the Canterbury region:

7 of 10 zone committees had replied regarding the swimming locations request.   

To answer some of the questions from our last ZC meeting:   The report was only focused (and funded) on freshwater sites not the estuaries or coastal swimming areas.    Coastal areas were generally covered under the RMA.   That said, if ZC can identify a site that it considered should be included,with justification, it would be added to master table information.

Why are whole river systems being looked at?  While acknowledging the need to improve whole systems, one of the intents was to provide information and opportunity to improve swimming areas or identify those areas that are no longer used/why not and if anything could be done to affect change.    By identifying areas it added to the master table of swimming locations previously not known, and assisted agencies to focus funding, improving signage and providing suitable facilities (if necessary).   Copy of report available. 

 

 

 


Liaison with community groups – Suzanne Furkert  (supported by Shelley Washington)

What are we trying to achieve in 5 years (2020)?

·    Ensure we complement and build on each other’s work to improve the health of Christchurch’s water resources.

What have we done since we last met?

Next Steps

Planning community group workshop to discuss CCC’s proposed Water Partnership programme 3 August 9:00 – 1pm Fendalton Library.
