1.   Brief Summary

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Three Waters Infrastructure and Environment Committee to receive the latest quarterly updates from the three Water Management Zone Committees.  The report has been written as part of the regular reporting by the zone committees to this Committee.

1.2       The three Water Management Zone Committees (Banks Peninsula, Christchurch-West Melton and Selwyn-Waihora) were established under the Canterbury Water Management Strategy.

1.2.1   Each Zone Committee is a joint committee of Environment Canterbury and Christchurch City Council. As the Christchurch-West Melton and Selwyn Waihora water management zones also include portions of Selwyn District, the two Zone Committees are also joint committees with the Selwyn District Council.

1.2.2   Each Zone Committee comprises one Environment Canterbury councillor, one elected member from each district council within the zone, one member from each Rūnanga in the zone and four to seven members of the community.

1.2.3   The purpose and function of the Zone Committees are to:

·     facilitate community involvement in the development, implementation, review and updating of Zone Implementation Programmes that gives effect to the Canterbury Water Management  Strategy

·     monitor progress of the implementation of their Zone Implementation Programmes.

1.2.4   Zone committees do not have their own budgets. They are able to make decisions on projects that are funded under Environment Canterbury’s Immediate Steps Biodiversity Programme, but otherwise cannot commit Environment Canterbury or district council funds.

1.3       The zone committees’ update reports cover the period of March 2020 through November 2020 (Attachment A).

1.4       The Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee’s Working Group for Cashmere and Port Hills reports back to the Zone Committee on a regular basis about improving erosion, and sediment control. Recommendations from the Working Group were supported by the Zone Committee at its meeting on 29 October 2020 and ongoing work is being carried out around these.  These are included on page 10 in the Quarterly Update report. The recommendations supported by the Zone Committee are:

1.4.1   That the Christchurch West Melton Zone Committee, Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury work with central government funding agencies to make resources available to work with landowners and to provide support and incentives for management of sediment at source.

1.4.2   That Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury spatially identify high risk areas to focus priority actions for management of sediment at source.

1.4.3   That Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury set up a joint team of capable staff to specialise in erosion and sediment control to ensure effective and consistent processes across both councils. This would be established on a long-term basis.

2.   Officer Recommendations / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Three Waters Infrastructure and Environment Committee:

1.         Receives the information in the Zone Committee Quarterly Update report.

2.         Notes the work of each water management zone committee.

5.2       The Biodiversity Fund is an opportunity to support private landowners who are taking voluntary action, and investing their own time and money, to protect and enhance biodiversity on their properties. The projects provide real protection for biodiversity in the Christchurch District through direct action.

 

Decision Making Authority / Te Mana Whakatau

5.3       Authority to consider and approve applications to the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund has been delegated to the Three Waters, Infrastructure, and Environment Committee.

 

November 2020 Funding Applications

5.4       The recommended funding would allocate a total of $126,395.00 across four projects. This would leave $73,605.00 in the Biodiversity Fund for the remainder of the 2020 - 2021 financial year.

Update on Previously-Funded Projects

5.8       Since the Fund was established in 2017, a total of $655,871.00 has been allocated to 33 projects (excluding the current applications). 26 of these projects are complete, with the remainder in progress.

5.9       Most previous projects involved fencing (27 projects); restoration planting (10 projects), pest plant control (7 projects), and pest mammal control (2 projects) are other activities that have been supported. Some projects involve multiple activities.

5.10    Over 330ha of ecologically significant vegetation has been protected, along with the indigenous fauna that live in those habitats. Several projects have also protected streams.

6.   Policy Framework Implications / Ngā Hīraunga ā- Kaupapa here

Strategic Alignment/ Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

6.1       The programme aligns with the strategic framework’s supporting principle of “taking an inter-generational approach to sustainable development prioritising the social, economic and cultural well-being of people and communities and the quality of the environment, now and into the future,” by supporting individual landowners to protect and enhance biodiversity on private land.

6.2       The programme also aligns with the strategic framework’s supporting principle of “actively collaborating and co-operating with other local, regional and national organisations.” We work with ECan and covenanting agencies to ensure that projects have adequate support and that our combined resources are efficiently allocated.

6.3       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

6.3.1   Activity: Strategic Planning and Policy

·     Level of Service: 1.4.2 Support the conservation and enhancement of the city’s heritage places.  - 100% of approved grant applications are allocated in accordance with the policy.  The Christchurch Biodiversity Fund is provided for in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan, and is aligned with the Council’s strategic framework. It is not, however, covered by a specific level of service in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan.

6.4       The programme broadly aligns with the Strategic Priority of “Meeting the challenge of climate change through every means available.” Proposed projects will enhance indigenous forest regeneration and reduce infestations of invasive pest plants. This will boost carbon sequestration and improve ecosystem resilience.

6.5       The programme aligns with the Healthy Environment Community Outcome. Specifically, the Biodiversity Fund supports the “unique landscapes and indigenous biodiversity are valued and stewardship exercised” outcome, by contributing to the protection of indigenous species and ecosystems, and by supporting landowners who are working to look after biodiversity on their own properties. Some projects also protect streams, contributing to the maintenance of healthy water bodies.

 

Policy Consistency / Te Whai Kaupapa here

6.6       The decision is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

6.7       The programme aligns with District Plan policies regarding the protection of ecologically significant sites, and the provision of advice and incentives for landowners who wish to do this on private property.

6.8       The programme supports the goals of the Council’s Biodiversity Strategy.

 

Impact on Mana Whenua / Ngā Whai Take Mana Whenua

6.9       The decision does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water, but does involve indigenous species and ecosystems that have intrinsic value. Therefore this decision does specifically impact Mana Whenua, their culture and traditions. Staff note that the intent of all projects is to have a positive impact on indigenous biodiversity.

 

Climate Change Impact Considerations / Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Āhuarangi

6.10    Most of the projects provide protection to regenerating shrubland and/or forest habitats, which will boost the carbon sequestration capacity of these areas. Protecting and enhancing the ecological health of the sites will improve the resilience of the habitats and species within them to the impacts of climate change.

10.   Impacts of Earthquakes and Sea Level Rise on Shallow Groundwater

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

20/1348634

Report of / Te Pou Matua:

Tom Parsons, Surface Water Engineer, Tom.parsons@ccc.govt.nz

General Manager / Pouwhakarae:

David Adamson, City Services & Brendan Anstiss, Strategy and Transformation

 

 

1.   Brief Summary

1.1       The purpose of this report is to inform the Committee of the upcoming public release of the technical report ‘Impacts of Earthquakes and Sea Level Rise on Shallow Groundwater Levels’ by Aqualinc. 

1.2       The report will be used to inform the assessment of the impact of hazards on floodplain management in tidally influenced areas of the city.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Three Waters Infrastructure and Environment Committee:

1.         Receive the ‘Impacts of Earthquakes and Sea Level Rise on Shallow Groundwater Levels’ report.

 

3.   Background

3.1       The Multi-Hazard Study will inform decisions on long-term floodplain management strategies for the lower reaches of the Avon, Heathcote and Styx Rivers, and Sumner. The Avon catchment is being progressed in priority to other catchments to help inform the Otākāro Avon River Corridor design.  The other catchments will follow. 

3.2       The first stage of the Multi Hazard Study was a gap analysis that compared available information with the required information for the project. The gap analysis was reported to the Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee on 26 July 2017 and to Council on 3 August 2017.  Council resolved to progress the gap filling technical studies (CNCL/2017/00175).  

3.3       The purpose of the groundwater assessment was not to accurately define the shallow groundwater hazard at a local scale, but to provide a high-level assessment at the citywide scale. It is not sufficiently detailed to identify individual property risks therefore will have no impact on LIM wording.  Any future consideration of a groundwater response would be part of long term planning, require additional investigation and policy direction from Council. 

3.4       The report has been written as a technical report for input into other work.  It was not written as a means of communicating technical information to a wider audience but it will be made publically available via Council’s website. 

3.5       The report has been reviewed by the Multi Hazards Peer Review Panel.  In addition to use in the Multi Hazard Study, the groundwater report will be used to inform future coastal hazards assessments. 

3.6       This is the last of the stage 1 gap filling hazard studies that were approved by the Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee in July 2017, to be released.  Reports already released include Tsunami (July 2019), Sediment Budget (September 2019) and Liquefaction studies (July 2020).  Once hydraulic modelling has been completed, a later report will collate this information and describe the overall progress on the Multi-Hazard Study.

3.7       This report will add to Council’s knowledge base on natural hazards and will be used to inform long-term planning.

3.8       The Groundwater assessment is soon to be published to the Council website.  No decision is required by Council or Committee on this matter and this report is provided for information only.
