4.     Te Wai Ora o Tāne Draft Integrated Water Strategy

Reference:

19/877100

Presenter(s):

Diane Shelander, Senior Policy Analyst

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Hearings Panel to consider the consultation feedback and views on the Te Wai Ora o Tāne Draft Integrated Water Strategy (Attachment A), to consider the staff recommendation, and to make a recommendation to Council.

1.2       A summary of submissions report analyses the submissions received and provides some recommended changes to the strategy (Attachment B). A tracked change version of the strategy with the recommended changes is also attached (Attachment C)

2.   Executive Summary

2.1       The draft Integrated Water Strategy was developed between mid-2015 and mid-2019 over three phases:

·   Current state report (situational analysis)

·   Issues and options report

·   Preparation of draft strategy

2.2       A number of activities were undertaken prior to public consultation on the draft strategy including:

·   Briefings to the Council, Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee, Community Boards and zone committees

·   Community stakeholders issues and options workshops

·   Huis with Mahaanui Kurataiao Ltd and with Ngāi Tahu

·   Environment Canterbury staff workshop

2.3       Public consultation on the draft strategy (Attachment A) was held from 14 June to 21 July 2019.

·   Eight drop-in sessions were held at locations across Christchurch, including Banks Peninsula.

·   We received 35 submissions.

·   In general there was support for the draft strategy, with a number of suggestions for changes to the draft strategy. The summary of submissions report (Attachment B) provides an analysis of the various submission points.

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Hearings Panel:

1.         Receive the summary of submissions report

2.         Consider all submissions received during the public consultation process.

3.         Recommend that the Council adopt the final Integrated Water Strategy.

 

4.   Community Views and Preferences

4.1       Assessment of Significance and Engagement

4.1.1   The decision(s) in this report are of high significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

4.1.2   Engagement requirements for this level of significance included the following:

·     Council meeting on 23 May 2019 where approval to consult was granted.

·     Working Party meeting on 27 May 2019 to update members prior to consultation.

·     Newspaper, radio, and online advertising to ensure people were aware of the draft integrated water strategy consultation.

·     Eight drop-in sessions, spread across the city.

·     Joint Community Board seminar on Friday 12 July.

·     This final round of consultation on the draft integrated water strategy closed the loop on an extensive public engagement project that spanned almost four years. The drop-in sessions in June and July were the final ways for people to have their say, but were preceded by 16 other public consultation events and opportunities between September 2015 and June 2019.

4.1.3   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflects the assessed level of significance.

4.2       Consultation

4.2.1   Consultation on the strategy was open from Friday 14 June to Sunday 21 July 2019.

4.2.2   The consultation Have Your Say link was sent to 213 key stakeholders on Friday 14 June. Hard copies of the strategy and consultation booklets were posted to seven Rūnanga.

4.2.3   Hard copies of the strategy and consultation booklets were made available citywide in libraries and service centres.

4.3       Social media

4.3.1   On 14 June 2019, a Newsline story was shared on the Council Newsline page (https://ccc.govt.nz/news-and-events/newsline/show/3674). This page was viewed 271 times: 110 (44%) via Facebook, 78 (29%) direct to the Newsline page and
73 (27%) via Google.

4.3.2   The Newsline story was also shared on the Facebook page, which had 25 likes, 36 comments, 6 shares, 448 engagements and 101 link clicks. This post had the highest engagement, which could largely be down to the six shares it had and the fact that it was the post that announced the consultation period for the draft integrated water strategy. There was a mix of comments, primarily around the issues of chlorination, water bottling, nitrates and climate change.  We responded to one question about chlorination.

4.3.3   On 28 June, a Facebook post advised submitters that the consultation timeframe had been extended. This post had 13 likes, 33 comments, 3 shares, 291 engagements and 28 link clicks. The reach was 10, 265 Facebook user

4.3.4   On 24 June, July 1 and July 7 there were community specific Facebook posts advertising drop-in sessions in their communities. These posts had 24 likes, 18 comments, 2 shares, 184 engagements and 37 link clicks. Reach: Somerfield Residents Association, Opawa neighbourhood, Akaroa - what is happening, Parklands Community East Christchurch, People’s Independent Republic of New Brighton, Beckenham Neighbourhood, Bishopdale Community Group, Woolston Community United community Facebook groups

4.3.5   On 24 June, July 1 and July 7 there were Neighbourly targeted posts. Reach: 129 neighbourhoods total

4.3.6   On July 19, a Facebook post advised that the consultation would close on Sunday. This post had 9 likes, 6 comments, 1 shares, 184 engagements and 15 link clicks. 4.3.8. Reach: 8,825 Facebook users.

4.4       Drop-ins

4.4.1   A series of eight drop-in sessions were held across the city. These provided the community the opportunity to come talk about the strategy with the team.

·     Tuesday 25 June Central City

·     Tuesday 25 June New Brighton

·     Wednesday 26 June Beckenham

·     Saturday 29 June Duvauchelle, Banks Peninsula

·     Wednesday 3 July Belfast

·     Monday 8 July Bishopdale

·     Tuesday 9 July Woolston

4.5       Advertising

4.5.1   Advertising included the following:

·     Radio: MoreFM, The Breeze, Newstalk ZB and iHeart

·     Newspapers: 2 quarter page insertions in each of The Press, The Star, Star Communities, Bay Harbour News and Akaroa Mail

·     Google Display Network

4.6       Consultation results

4.6.1   During the consultation we received 35 submissions. Of these, 22 were from individuals and the remainder were from community groups, organisations and businesses.

4.6.2   In total, we had 19 attendees to the eight district-wide drop-in sessions. One individual attended two drop-ins which leaves us with 18 individuals. Two of these were Board members so the total number of members of the public were 16 (one of which went on to submit). Of these 16, one was a business representative, six represented community groups and three represented Resident Associations. Of the 16, seven went on to submit (two of which were submitted by other members of their resident/community groups and one was submitted as an individual rather than a business representative).

4.6.3   Consultation themes covered a broad range and are discussed in detail in the Summary of Submissions (Attachment B).

4.6.4   A tracked change version of the strategy (Attachment C) incorporates the recommended changes from the summary of submissions report.

5.   Impact on Mana Whenua

5.1       This option involves a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision specifically impacts Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

 

6.   Legal Implications

6.1       The strategy is not a statutory document but rather an overarching strategy to inform the Council’s planning activities and operations.
