1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to seek approval from the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to a proposed a land exchange for part of a Local Purpose (Access) Reserve for an equal amount of adjacent land, and if approved, to request the Chief Executive Officer to publish the same in the New Zealand Gazette.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in a response to a request from the adjoining land owner to exchange the affected parcels of land.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by completing the significance assessment template.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve the exchange of Council owned land being 194m² and described as Lot 1 LT 514055 for 194m² being Lot 2 LT 514055 as Local Purpose (Access) Reserve; and

2.         Request the Chief Executive Officer to gazette the exchange in 1. above pursuant to Section 15(1) of the Reserves Act 1977.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1    This report does not support the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025).

4.2    The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approve the land exchange (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do not approve the land exchange

4.3    Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Has no impact on the Council because the land the Council acquires as part of this exchange will be acquired as Local Purpose (Access) Reserve.

·     All costs are recovered from the applicant.

·     Allows optimum development of the adjoining land.

·     Shows the Council is supporting local developments.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified.

 

5.   Context/Background

Original Land Acquisition and Planned Development

5.1    In 2009, the Council adopted the South West Area Plan (SWAP) which provided a framework to manage urban and business growth in the South West area of Christchurch. It sets out the Council’s land requirements to achieve the objectives in the SWAP.

5.2    On 13 March 2014, the Council adopted the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board’s recommendation made on 14 February 2014, to the purchase of a strip of land adjacent to Owaka Road for a Local Purpose (Access) Reserve which will form part of the Waka Trail (refer Attachment A, Sec 1, 2 and 3).

5.3       The plan was for certain access points to be retained by the adjoining owner to allow them access to their site for future development. These access points are identified as areas “A” and “B” on Attachment A.

5.4       The purchase was completed and the Council own the land either side of the access points and hold the same as Local Purpose (Access) Reserve, subject to the Reserves Act 1977.

5.5       At the time the Council acquired the land for a local purpose (access way) reserve, the adjoining owner had no immediate plans to develop their site. In essence, the selected access points were the best estimate where access to their land would be required.

5.6       A recently lodged resource consent application to construct an industrial workshop, as permitted by the City Plan, indicates that by moving the access point approximately 20 metres to the north, enables an additional four  carparks and thus complies with car parking requirements in the City Plan and provides better vehicle flow within the site (refer Attachment B).

5.7       Subsequently the adjoining owner, Haras Holdings Limited have concluded that the location of access point “B” does not fully meet their requirements for optimal development and has approached Council staff and proposed a land exchange which if approved, will relocate the access point approximately 10 metres to the north enabling the additional four car parks on site.

5.8       Council staff are receptive to the proposal providing the adjoining owner meets all of the Council’s costs and agrees to surrender a right of way on foot and cycle easement and a right to drain water easement from the land the Council is to acquire.

5.9       The easements that are surrendered by the applicant in the preceding paragraph will be relocated and granted over land the adjoining owner is acquiring from the Council.

5.10    The main points of the proposal are:

·   The Council acquire Lot 2 LT 514055 in exchange for Lot 1 LT 514055 as shown on Attachment C.

·   All services currently over Lot 2 LT 514055 are relocated to Lot 1 LT 514055.

·   The land the Council acquires will be unencumbered.

·   All costs will be met by the adjoining owner.

5.11    Although this proposal has been assessed as being of low significance, Section 15 of the Reserves Act 1977 requires the proposal to be publically advertised for one month prior to the passing of a resolution authorising the exchange.

5.12    The advertising commenced on 10 August 2017 and has concluded. There were no enquiries or submissions received regarding the proposal.

6.   Option 1 – Approve the land exchange (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Exchange Council-owned land shown as Lot 1 with an equal area shown as Lot 2 in Attachment C.

Significance

6.2       The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation – Not applicable

6.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – There will be no cost impact 

6.9       Funding source – Not applicable

Legal Implications

6.10    An agreement to exchange the land has been prepared by the Council’s Legal Services Unit and has been signed by both parties. The agreement sets out all terms and conditions including the applicant meeting all costs, and being required to relocate all services.

6.11    Section 15 of the Reserves Act 1977 is the statutory authority that prescribes a process for exchange of reserve land for other land. Section 15 requires public advertising which has been completed (refer to paragraph 6.5). All decision making powers in relation to Section 15 have been delegated by the Council to Community Boards.

6.12    The land the Council acquires will become Local Purpose (Access) Reserve as part of the process whereas the land the adjoining owner acquires will be free from that classification.

Risks and Mitigations   

6.13    None to the Council.

6.14    All risks are with the adjoining owner e.g. not being able to obtain Council approval. Failure to obtain approval will result in the adjoining owner having to reconsider their development plans.

Implementation

6.15    Implementation dependencies  - Council approval

6.16    Implementation timeframe – six months

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16.1    The advantages of this option include:

·     Has no impact on the Council

·     All costs are recovered from the applicant

·     Allows optimum development of the adjoining land

·     Shows the Council is supporting local developments
