Context

 

There are four Rūnanga whose takiwā or territories lie within the Christchurch City Council’s area of jurisdiction. Two, Te Taumutu Rūnanga and Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga, have boundaries that include Christchurch City but also extend beyond the City Council’s jurisdiction.

 

Representatives from each Rūnanga come together to form Te Kāhui Kahukura, a body which has the authority to exercise decision making powers on behalf of Ngā Papatipu Rūnanga. Through its various regulatory functions, such as District Planning and others prescribed by the Resource Management Act, the Christchurch City Council has a direct relationship with Te Kāhui Kahukura.

In this context, the Christchurch City Council established Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee, which includes representatives from the Council and the six Rūnanga, to further enhance the relationship between the Council and Ngāi Tahu.

 

There are three intrinsic values which are fundamental to Ngā Papatipu Rūnanga. These are protecting and enhancing water quality, protecting Māori Reserve Land, and safeguarding the interests of future generations. These are closely aligned with three equivalent values held by the Christchurch City Council. The Council has statutory responsibility for meeting the needs of future generations, providing safe drinking water and protecting its parks and reserves. The committee will work to seek alignment of these values and work towards them for the benefit of everyone in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.

The takiwā of the six Papatipu Rūnanga was described Schedule 1 of the Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu Act 1996, which has since been superseded by the Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu (Declaration of Membership) Order 2001:

Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga: The takiwā of Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga centres on Tuahiwi and extends from the Hurunui to Hakatere, sharing an interest with Arowhenua Rūnanga northwards to Rakaia, and thence inland to the Main Divide.

 

Rapaki Rūnanga: The takiwā of Rapaki Rūnanga centres on Rapaki and includes the catchment of Whakaraupo and Te Kaituna.

 

Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata: The takiwā of Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata centres on Koukourārata and extends from Pohatu Pā to the shores of Te Waihora including Te Kaituna.

 

Wairewa Rūnanga: The takiwā of Wairewa Rūnanga centres on Wairewa and the catchment of the lake Te Wairewa and the hills and coast to the adjoining takiwā of Koukourārata,

Onuku Rūnanga, and Taumutu Rūnanga.

 

Te Rūnanga o Ōnuku: The takiwā of Te Rūnanga o Ōnuku centres on Ōnuku and the hills and coasts of Akaroa to the adjoining takiwa of Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata and Wairewa Rūnanga.

 


Taumutu Rūnanga: The takiwā of Taumutu Rūnanga centres on Taumutu and the waters of Te Waihora and adjoining lands and shares a common interest with Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga and Te Rūnanga o Arowhenua in the area south to Hakatere.


 

Responsibilities

Te Hononga Council - Papatipu Rūnanga Committee is responsible for the following:

·                Leading the development of an enduring collaborative relationship between the Council and Ngā Papatipu Rūnanga.

·                Building shared understanding and strong coordinated leadership on matters of mutual interest within the respective areas of jurisdiction.

·                Having oversight of, and providing advice and assistance to the Council on, matters of significance or priority to Māori, and to inform Council decision making.

·                Receiving regular updates from staff on Council programmes and projects of significance or priority to Māori.

·                Operating in accordance with the Relationship Agreement between Christchurch City Council and Ngā Papatipu Rūnanga signed on 15 December 2016.

 

Delegations

·                This Committee can make recommendations to the Council but does not have delegated authority to make formal decisions on behalf of the Council.

 

Resourcing

·                The Principal Advisor Ngāi Tahu Relationships will act as the Principal Advisor to the Committee.

·                A Senior Advisor also forms part of the Ngāi Tahu Māori Relationships team.

·                A Committee Advisor from the Hearings and Council Support Team will provide administrative and procedural support to the Committee.

·                All three of these positions will be provided by the Council.

·                An annual budget allocation is also made in accordance with the work programme.

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       This report is written in response to the Committee’s request for information about the land use issues at Rāpaki – in particular the query from Rāpaki Rūnanga about the requirement to submit  a resource consent application before knowing if they can build on their reserve land .

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee Committee:

1.         Receives the information in the report.

 

3.   Key Points

What provisions apply to Māori Land within the Rāpaki Pāpakainga/Kāinga Nohoanga Zone

3.1       At its meeting on16 March 2017 the Committee requested a report regarding land use issues at Rāpaki in terms of the relationship between development opportunities afforded under the provisions of the Pāpakainga/Kāinga Nohoanga Zone and those under the Natural Hazards provisions.

3.2       The Independent Hearings Panel for the Christchurch Replacement District Plan (Independent Hearings Panel) decided that the following controls would apply to Maori reserve land at Rāpaki:

3.2.1      Outstanding natural landscape 2.0 (Rāpaki Ōhinetahi / Governers Bay Summits Ōtaranui ki Ōmawete);

3.2.2      High natural character 2.0 (Rāpaki Ōhinetahi / Governers Bay Coastline – Taukahara and Ōtūherekio);

3.2.3      Rockfall management area 1;

3.2.4      Rockfall management area 2; and

3.2.5      Remainder of Port Hills and Banks Peninsula slope instability management area.

3.3       The outstanding natural landscape provision applies due to the significance of these summits.

3.4       The high natural character provision is mandated by the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement, which states that adverse effects are to be “avoided” within the coastal environment. This area applies to the two headland areas east and west of the Rāpaki settlement.  For any activity located in either of these areas, resource consent as a controlled activity is required, but the following applies:

3.4.1      Matters of control are restricted to reflectivity and colour of building materials and landscaping;

3.4.2      No mitigation is required for buildings and activities that are “culturally fundamental” (e.g. whare nui);

3.4.3      No written approvals or notification are required (i.e. it is purely a matter between the applicant and Council).

3.5       The Independent Hearings Panel made its decision on the basis that Rūnanga are best placed to determine how to develop within their own environment. However, the Council holds significant expertise and knowledge with respect to natural hazards.

3.6       The Rūnanga may need to submit a resource consent application to demonstrate that risks from natural hazards have been mitigated. This will be a matter to be resolved between the applicant and the Council. Please note that the first 30 minutes of consultation with a Council planner is free of charge. Also of note Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and Council are producing a booklet to explain the new provisions on the Māori reserves. This is due to be completed by the end of the year.

Background information about the Pāpakainga/Kāinga Nohoanga Zone

3.7       The Pāpakainga/Kāinga Nohoanga Zone is a new zone introduced into the Replacement District Plan, which enables a wide range of development opportunities for whānau or hapū to provide for their social, cultural and economic well-being.  The development and built form standards provide an envelope within which the development can be undertaken with the only standards applying being those that relate to boundary effects (e.g. height of building on boundary).

3.8       The Pāpakainga/Kāinga Nohoanga Zone applies to five original Māori Reserve areas that were vested as part of the Kemp Deeds of 1848.  These areas include a mixture of Māori customary or feehold land or Māori land reserved for communal purposes and non-Māori owned land.  The Pāpakainga/Kāinga Nohoanga Zone provisions apply to the Māori land and the Rural Banks Peninusla Zone provisions apply to non-Māori land.

3.9       The plan was developed in consultation with the Rūnanga Focus Working Group established through the offices of Mahaanui Kurataiao Ltd.

3.10    One of the issues that was debated and agreed upon through the development process related to which of the district wide provisions would apply. With regard to Rāpaki, the following are included within the zone:

3.10.1    Outstanding natural landscape

3.10.2    High natural character in the coastal environment

3.10.3    Natural character in the coastal environment

3.10.4    Coastal environment

3.10.5    Outstanding natural landscape

3.10.6    Wāhi tapu / wāhi taonga

3.10.7    Ngā tūranga tupuna

3.10.8    Mahaanui iwi management plan silent files

3.10.9    Rockfall management area 1

3.10.10 Rockfall management area 2

3.10.11 Remainder of Port Hills and Banks Peninsula slope instability management area.

1.  Purpose and origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1.  This report is for Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee to be updated about the work programme that was agreed at the meeting on 16 March 2017.

2.  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.

3.  Key Points

3.1.  In alignment with the work programme the Ngāi Tahu relationship Team continues to focus on the three priority areas: improving water quality; identifying opportunities for the Canterbury tribal economy; and enabling wider use of Māori Reserve land.

4.  Work to date

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

 Improving Water Quality

4.2.  Currently there are two important water issues that are of interest to Te Hononga. They are the Stormwater 35 year Global Consent and the Dudley Creek/Horseshoe Lake aspect of the draft Cranford Regeneration Plan. The Ngāi Tahu Relationship team is working with Council colleagues, Mahaanui and Ngā Rūnanga in progressing these issues. They are complex but all parties are in agreement that water quality across the district needs to improve.


 

The Stormwater 35 Year Global Consent and the wastewater network

4.2.1.     Council staff met with Kaitiaki Rūnanga representatives on 5 April 2017 and again on 7 June 2017. We have made good progress in terms of advancing a more robust relationship between Ngā Rūnanga and the Council at the operational level. The Council now has a standing item on the agenda at the Kaitiaki Rūnanga /Mahaanui monthly meetings. Kaitiaki Rūnanga representatives agreed to the Integrated Water Partnership so more work shall be done to agree an appropriate terms of reference and annual work plan for this group.

4.2.2.     Council staff presented to Ngā Rūnanga about the Stormwater 35 Year Global Consent and the wastewater network and outlet consent. Of particular interest to Rūnanga are untreated stormwater discharge outlets and the plans that Council has to rectify this. Rūnanga also requested a representative with an engineering background on the Water Issues Management Group (WIM, formerly known as SWIM). Rūnanga have signalled that the 35 year nature of the Stormwater consent is an issue for them. These discussions are ongoing.

Horseshoe Lake and Dudley Creek Concept.

4.2.3.     Council staff have been discussing these projects with the Rūnanga. The outcome of those discussions is that compromise proposals have been put forward. It is still early in the process but Council Officers have agreed to investigate these options further. They are outlined below.

4.2.4.     Presently, the large 2.1m Diameter Dudley Creek Diversion pipeline, which drains areas as far upstream as Bishopdale, discharges directly into Horseshoe Lake. This has been an ongoing issue for Te Ngāi Tūahuriri Rūnanga because the lake is of special significance to the hapū (sub tribe). The proposed solution is to divert the Dudley Creek Diversion Pipeline flows (plus the flows from No.1 and No.2 drains) so that they pass through a constructed wetland stormwater treatment area. These flows would then pass through the outlet at "Pump Station 205" and into the Avon River thus avoiding Horseshoe Lake.

4.2.5.     A proposal for Dudley Creek is to treat the flows discharging from the natural outlet of Dudley Creek in a constructed wetland before these flows enter the Avon River.  The bypass culvert flows would not be treated, however, these bypass flows will occur at high flood conditions when the contaminant loads are lower.  The natural outlet carries all the small frequent storms and the first part of the larger storms (where most of the stormwater contaminants are found) and thus a reasonably high contaminant removal should be possible before the stormwater enters the Avon River. The Rūnanga are supportive of this concept and both parties have agreed to investigate this option within their organisations.

Wairewa Bridge Build

4.2.6.     Wairewa Rūnanga, in partnership with the 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.

4.2.7.     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 the Council.

4.2.8.     The Wairewa canal bridge build has been postponed until February 2018 for the following reasons:

·          The weather (rainfall) and the requirement to open the lake

·          The health and safety risks associated with working in this environment in the wettest months of mid-winter - from mid-May to mid-June

·          Consent requirements to allow for the bird nesting survey in both September 2017 and January 2018.

4.2.9.     The Wairewa Rūnanga has sent a letter explaining the delay to all residents of Bossu Rd and Birdlings Flat.

Future water quality issues

4.2.10.     For future reference the following lists water strategies, plans and partnerships are underway:

4.2.10.1.     Christchurch City Council Integrated Water Strategy. This draft strategy will replace the Council's Water Supply, Surface Water and Waste Water Strategies. This strategy is due to be presented to the Kaitiaki Rūnanga at their newly established monthly meetings.

4.2.10.2.     CSNDC - Christchurch City Council Comprehensive Stormwater Network Discharge Consent. Lodged with Environment Canterbury (ECan) in June 2015. This will replace all current Council stormwater discharge consents held with ECan. It will also provide consent cover for discharges from stormwater networks on Banks Peninsula where there are currently no consents in place.

4.2.10.3.     SWIM - Now known as WIM - Water Issues Management Group. Consisting of senior managers from ECan and the Council. This group was established under the joint stormwater management protocol of 2011.

4.2.10.4.     Integrated Water partnership - This is the proposed partnership (ToR) between the Council and Papatipu Rūnanga.

4.2.10.5.     SMP - Stormwater Management Plan - Technical investigation of a river catchment, looking at land drainage, ecology and contamination associated with current and future land use activities. The Council uses this information to determine stormwater treatment and detention facilities required across the catchment to improve waterway water quality and to reduce downstream flooding.


 

Opportunities for Developing the Canterbury Tribal Economy

Progress on the Christchurch Dollar

4.3.  The initial workshop planned to explore this has been delayed due to conflicting schedules for workshop participants. We are still trying to find a suitable date that works for all interested parties.

Update on Other Activities

4.4.  Te Reo for elected members and staff

4.5.  The weekly Te Reo Māori class is ongoing.  The Ngai Tahu Relationships team have developed a tailor-made te reo programme for Council staff. The programme is based around a series of modules each five weeks in duration. The first module is due to start in the new financial year for 15 staff and already the class is over subscribed.

Mahaanui Service Level Agreement

4.6.  Feedback from Council staff who use Mahaanui has been favourable. The 2017/18 agreement will be signed in July.

Weekly lunchtime waiata session

4.7.  We run a weekly one-hour lunchtime session for all Council staff who want to improve their knowledge of Māori waiata. One team has used this singing together experience as a team-building exercise.

Mataapopore

4.8.  Individual workstreams contract Mataapopore for each project when this is appropriate.

Blessings and sod turnings

4.9.  Staff continue to lead ceremonial blessings, sod turnings and welcome on sites where the Council is building or repairing facilities. On average there at least one event per week.

Community Boards

4.10.    The seven Community Boards have asked for Māori names for their wards. These names need to go to Council for ratification. The kaupapa behind the names reflect water and are as follows:

4.11.        ōWaipapa – Papanui / Innes ward

4.12.        ōWaitai – Coastal / Burwood ward

4.13.        ōWaikura – Linwood / Central / Heathcote ward

4.14.        ōWaihoro – Spreydon / Cashmere ward

4.15.        ōWainui – Hornby / Halswell / Riccarton ward

4.16.        ōWaimāero – Fendalton / Wamairi / Harewood ward

4.17.         Banks Peninsula already has a Māori name Te Pātaka o Rākaihāutu.

1.   Purpose and origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       This purpose of this report is to provide advice on the process that would be required if Wairewa Rūnanga submits a formal offer to purchase Wairewa Reserve 3185, and how this process can be expedited.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being provided to fulfil Te Hononga – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee Resolution THCP/2017/00021 which was as follows: Request a report with advice on the proposed purchase of Wairewa reserve 3185 by Wairewa Runanga and how this process can be expedited, including advice on consultation requirements and Ministerial sign-off.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee:

1.         Receives the information in the Wairewa Reserve 3185 Update Report.

 

 

3.   Background

3.1       The Wairewa Rūnanga is presently preparing an offer to purchase Reserve 3185 from Council. The process for the purchase of the land is outlined below.

3.2       Reserve 3185 is vested in the Council and held subject to specific statutory trusts specified in section 21(4)(b) or the Reserves and Other Lands Disposal Act 1955.

3.3       The Council must comply with sections 140 and 141 of the Local Government Act 2002 to establish a process by which the Council may either alter those trusts, or sell the land.

3.4       The legal advice that the Council has received is that section 138 of the Local Government Act 2002 would apply to any proposed dale. This section requires the Council to consult on any proposal to sell the land with those persons interested or affected by the proposal before making any decision to sell the land.

3.5       Any decision to sell the land would need to be made by the Council.

3.6       If the Rūnanga makes a formal offer to the Council to purchase the land, the Council should adhere to the following process:

3.6.1   Council officers will formally notify a Committee of Council that the offer has been received. The report should provide the necessary background and historical information concerning the land and details of the Rūnanga's proposal.  In addition, that report should contain advice from the appropriate technical staff as to whether the land is required for the purposes for which it is held, or not.  Staff should also consider and advise on whether there are any alternative Council uses for the land, or not.

3.6.2   That staff report should also consider and advise on whether there is a need to alter the statutory trusts to which the land is subject.  If the Council decides to sell the land, then consideration would need to be given as to whether the existing statutory trusts (i.e." for the purpose 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") would need to be changed.

3.6.3   If the Council decides in principle to proceed, it would need to resolve to commence the consultation process required by sections 138 and 141(c) and (d) of the Local Government Act 2002.

3.6.4   Following completion of those consultation processes a further staff report would need to be put to Council advising the outcome of those consultation processes and seeking a decision on the proposal.
