Assessment of Significance and Engagement

3.7       The level of significance was determined by the number of people affected and/or with an interest.

6.   Significant Community Issues, Events and Projects in the Board Area

6.1       Response to events of Friday 15 March 2019

On Sunday 17 March, available members of the Community Board met with local leaders to discuss a community response to the tragic events of Friday 15 March 2019.

It was noted that:

·    Everyone caught up in an event such as happened on Friday will be affected psychosocially. For some the psychosocial effects will be more pronounced than others, but everyone is affected.

·    People directly affected (the Muslim community, immediate responders, those in the area and children and young people who were locked down with no information) will take time to come to terms with what has happened.

·    The events of that Friday will have widespread impacts that extend beyond those ‘directly’ affected. A broad audience will have communication and information needs as we begin to process what has happened. This will extend well beyond the geographic location of the events.

It was agreed that:

·    Those present would use relevant channels to promote five essential elements of safety, calm, connectedness, self-efficacy and hope.

·    Staff would provide a memorandum to the Board proposing the idea of the establishment of a Local Response Fund that could be used to respond to immediate and emerging needs, criteria based on promoting the principles of safety, calm, connectedness, self-efficacy and hope. The kaupapa of the fund being it could assist such things as connectedness events etc. for those that need them.

 

·    The memorandum from staff is included as Attachment B.

 

6.2       Halswell Disability Survey

In September 2018, the Halswell Community Project and Community Governance staff took on a project to survey people with intellectual disabilities and a stocktake of the facilities in the area. 

This initiative was driven by the Halswell Community Project’s strategic planning, and recognising that Halswell has a high number of agencies and activities catering for people with a disability. 

The project resulted in a report being produced that outlined recommendations to improve the activities and events in the local area for people with disabilities.  It also summarised the facility usage in Halswell.

The report has been distributed to the Community Board, the Halswell Residents' Association and the Board of Halswell Community Project as well as the Council’s Disability Advisory Group. 

It is hoped that a disability focus can be applied to projects to ensure that Halswell is the best place for people with a disability in the city. 

6.3       Halswell Commons Subdivision – Site Visit

The developers for the Halswell Commons subdivision had extended an invitation to the Board to visit the subdivision.

Members available were hosted at the Spreydon Lodge building on 8 March 2019 and received a briefing on the main features of the development and its progress so far.

The subdivision, being an exemplar development under the provisions of the Land Use Recovery Plan, has a land area of 19 hectares for its first stage on a part of the site being the former Spreydon Lodge property.

Key criteria for the development, as set by the Council in 2014, are:

·    High quality, safe and accessible neighbourhood residential environment

·    Medium density

·    Innovation within the housing market

·    Appropriate to the locality

·    Diversity and affordability of housing products

·    Well built and energy efficient
