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of the six Papatipu Rūnanga was described Schedule 1 of the Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu Act 1996, which has since been superseded by the Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu (Declaration of Membership) Order 2001: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

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for Te Hononga Council – Papatipu Rūnanga Committee to be updated about the Council staff’s work programme in support of the Committee’s priorities agreed to at its 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       The Environment Court has granted the Council an extension of its appeal until 2018 for the Akaroa Wastewater scheme. This allows the Council time to fully understand the flow issues and the possible options for wastewater disposal.

3.2       The Council has indicated to Regenerate Christchurch that they would support the Tūāhuriri preferred option for wetland water treatment at Horseshoe Lake and Dudley Creek.

3.3       The second five-week te reo course for Council staff is currently underway and the weekly waiata sessions are growing in popularity. The Community Boards are investigating video conference as a way that they can participate remotely in these sessions.

4.   Work to date

4.1. Improving Water Quality:

4.1.1      Akaroa Wastewater Scheme Update

Situation

4.1.2      In June 2017 the flow meter at the Akaroa wastewater treatment plant was found to be faulty. Data from this flow meter had been relied on for the design of the Akaroa wastewater scheme and the various disposal and reuse options. The internal electronic components of the meter had failed and it is not clear when this happened, so the Council has started afresh with establishing new design flows.

4.1.3      New flow meters were installed in June 2017 at the wastewater treatment plant and the two pump stations that didn’t already have flow meters. Initial results are that the flow is approximately double what was previously thought.  This will have a significant effect on the design of the wastewater scheme and consideration of options, particularly the amount of land required for irrigation options and the costs of the options. 

4.1.4      This means the Council will need to reconsider the existing options and consider other options.  Further public consultation on those options will be required.

 

Next Steps

4.1.5      July 2017 – April 2018: Data gathering and wastewater model update.

4.1.6      To develop reliable flows for the Akaroa wastewater network and due to significant seasonal variation in tourists, the Council needs to gather both winter and summer flow data using new flow meter equipment installed in June 2017.

4.1.7      The hydraulic computer model of the Akaroa wastewater network is being rebuilt and the new flow data will be used to calibrate it.  This is expected to be complete by April 2018.

4.1.8      The flow data and the calibrated network model will be used to determine new design flows for the Akaroa wastewater scheme, particularly average and peak flows, and annual volumes of wastewater. These design flows will be used to revise the size and cost of the options already considered, along with any further options that may be included.

4.1.9      July 2017 – May 2018: Additional investigation and options studies

4.1.10    So as not to delay the reconsideration of options, the Council is making a preliminary estimate of the design flows based on the flow data available to date. Feasibility work is being under taken to understand the following:

·          Extent of groundwater infiltration and stormwater inflow into the wastewater network and the effect of reducing this water entering the network.

·          Identifying high water users and the effect of reducing the resulting wastewater entering the network.

·          Exploring non-potable reuse for the town, how much this reduces the volume of wastewater to be disposed of and the associated cost savings.

·          Considering additional areas that may be suitable for irrigation of treated wastewater that were not short listed previously due to their distance from Akaroa.

·          Considering deep well injection of treated wastewater that were not short listed previously.

·          Preparing cost estimates for constructing and operating options.

4.1.11    Options now being considered as an alternative to the harbour outfall for treated wastewater disposal and reuse are:

·          Irrigation of areas previously considered plus two new areas.

·          Deep well injection.

·          Non-potable reuse.

4.1.12    In addition, measures to reduce wastewater flows by reducing groundwater and stormwater infiltration into the wastewater network are also being considered. Digital temperature sensing has proven an effective way of pinpointing these flows in an initial trial in the Recreation Ground catchment in Akaroa.  This is now being rolled out for the remainder of that catchment, as this has the highest levels of inflow and infiltration.

4.1.13    The consultants have been asked to carry out a desktop study of deep well injection, for discussion with the Ngāi Tahu parties and the Akaroa treated wastewater working party about the acceptability of this as an option and possible locations, hopefully in late October. Other topics proposed for those hui are non-potable reuse, the new irrigation sites, and the likely extent to which inflow and infiltration can be reduced.

4.1.14    Public consultation and appellant Council decision-making on preferred option will be undertaken between May - December 2018.

4.1.15    The Council will undertake public consultation on the short listed options.  This timeframe includes preparing and printing a public information document, public notice of a period of at least 30 days for written comments, analysing feedback and preparing a hearings report, a hearing, and a recommendation to a meeting of the Council on the option to pursue. 

4.1.16    There was strong interest in the previous public consultation held in April – May 2017 with 236 submissions received by the Council. It is expected that there will be similar interest in 2018 and the Council must allow sufficient time for a robust decision making process.  This typically takes six months for an issue of high significance such as this.  However, the Council will be focused on consultation and hearings for its Long Term Plan April – June  2018, so a slightly longer duration is proposed for the Akaroa wastewater consultation and decision making process to avoid clashing with the Long Term Plan deliberations.

           Environment Court Appeal

4.1.17    The Council has been granted an extension of its appeal with the Environment Court on the declined application for consents to construct and operate a new wastewater outfall in Akaroa Harbour. The Council will provide a progress report to the Environment Court by 25 May 2018 and a report on the option chosen by 7 December 2018.

4.2       The Stormwater 35 Year Global Consent and the Wastewater Network

4.2.1   After meeting with Nga Rūnanga in June the Council has been fully engaged in the contaminant load pilot study. Potentially this will provide a performance criteria against which the city’s stormwater discharge quality improvement can be measured.

4.3       Horseshoe Lake and Dudley Creek Concept

4.3.1   The Council has submitted the wetland stormwater treatment options for Horseshoe Lake and Dudley Creek to Regenerate Christchurch. These are the options agreed with Tūāhuriri who have an interest in the area.

4.3.2   As requested at the previous meeting maps of these two options are attached, along with an overview map of the Shirley Burwod area.

4.4       Wairewa Reserve 3185

4.4.1   No movement in regards to this possible request to purchase. The Council remains open to an offer from Wairewa.

4.5       Opportunities for Developing the Canterbury Tribal Economy

4.5.1   The tribal economy is a key feature of the 2017 Hui a iwi to be held at Tuahiwi Marae on 24 – 26 November. The Relationship Advisor will work with Te Rūnanga to help prepare for the tribal economy conference which will precede the hui.


 

5.   Update on Other Activities

5.1       Te Reo Māori

5.1.1   The Governance Team (Mayor and Elected Members) are learning their own mihi as well as a repertoire of waiata. The Mayor and Elected Members were able to stand and support the whaikorero with waiata at events such as the Papanui cycleway opening. This surprised the community and invited guests and many positive comments were made.

5.1.2   The pilot programme of te reo classes for staff has also been a success, with 70% of participants requesting more classes. Three Department Heads and Managers have requested te reo classes specifically catered to their respective teams.

5.2       Waiata

5.2.1   Weekly waiata sessions are attracting greater support. Staff have learnt a number of simple waiata and chants relating to Ngāi Tahu in these informal sessions. Community boards and service centres have requested to video conference in and virtually ‘attend’ these sessions.

5.3       Tikanga

5.3.1   Teams across the Council organisation continue to approach the Relationship Advisors for cultural guidance or participation in a variety of projects.  The Advisors respond to the requests and talk with the respective rūnanga on cultural facilitation of events. Examples include:

·        Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa conference (Oct 2017)

·        Blessing of buildings at Halswell Quarry (Oct 2017)

·        Nā te kore indigenous design conference (2018)

·        Scottish Rugby League team pōwhiri (Oct 2017)

·        Rugby League World Cup.
