10. Canterbury Water Management Strategy Action Plan Budget 2021-22 Allocation Recommendations

 

Committee Comments

Discussion was held about the possibilities for allocation for the remaining Canterbury Water Management Strategy Action Plan Budget for 2021-22. Funding of $5,500 is available to projects. Options suggested included; Te Ahu Pātiki, Okuti River Wetland Revitalisation and Eastern Bays fencing. Also the reallocation of $2,500 that will not be spent at this time on Wainui wastewater engagement, due to the regional campaign not being developed by then and $2,000 that will not be spent on climate change engagement due to not being ready to engage at this time.

 

Additional suggestions were noted as:

·    Committee members should encourage groups and people with good projects to apply for the funding.

·    Each of the recipients should receive contact by a Committee member – Zone Facilitator, Shelley Washington, will email the list of recipients to members to volunteer to be their Committee liaison person.

·    Shelley will invite the landowners to provide an update to a meeting on their projects once they are well progressed.

 

 

 

Committee Resolved BPZC/2022/00003

         That the Banks Peninsula Water Management Zone Committee determines the budget allocation to recommend to Environment Canterbury, as:

          Te Ahu Pātiki Trust - $10,000 for the ecological and cultural assessments.

Gina Waibl/Trudi Bishop                                                                                                                                        Carried

 

10a  Update Soil Conservation

 

Committee comment

 

Meredith MacDonald, ECan, provided an update following the Committee’s February field trip, about ECan’s Soil Conservation Programme that has been in place for three years. The Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI), ECan and farmers fund space planting, fencing and native plants with subsidies regarding land use capability mapping and soil conservation. This is a tool to engage in a different way with six monthly targets. The programme is currently undertaken in North Canterbury but could be considered on Banks Peninsula.

 

Discussion was held about erosion types on Banks Peninsula and what tools might be most effective for the area. Shelley advised she would distribute an ECan erosion report on Banks Peninsula to members.

 

Meredith advised that funding was not available at this time, but could be applied to from MPI in the next financial year, from June 2023.

 

Feedback on what would work for Banks Peninsula would be helpful. The Committee will ask George and Ben to gather information from Banks Peninsula landowners, to be combined with technical information for the funding application.

 

The Committee agreed it would like to support the programme and be keen to investigate further addressing soil erosion, and consider other funding sources also in this regard.

 

Committee Resolved BPZC/2022/00004

That the Banks Peninsula Water Management Zone Committee:

 

1.    Receive the update by Meredith MacDonald, ECan about soil conservation funding for areas on Banks Peninsula.

 

2.    Support Environment Canterbury’s proposal regarding a potential funding application relating to the soil conservation project for the Zone Committee on Banks Peninsula.

Lan Pham/Aurora Smith                                                                                                                                         Carried

11  Progress Updates on Action Plan

 

 

Stream Care Information Cards – the information cards inform people about how to care for streams that pass through their properties (rural properties mainly). The topics are: flooding, fish passage, mahinga kai, and bank care. The data outlined in the cards is required to be pulled together into one online area that is easily accessible to the public. This will continue to be worked on and an update provided when further information is available.

 

Funding for Eastern Bays erosion – Gill Jenkins advised that in response to this some landowners had applied to ECan for funding, e.g. regarding fencing a covenant.

 

Resource Consents - Jaleesa Panirau advised that last week she had met at the Christchurch City Council about resource consents and not wanting residents to be punished for their consents expiring. We will hear from the Council regarding a date for a community hui. Marion explained the need to socialise risk screening, particularly with Rūnanga. She asked for information from members who were aware of water surges on Banks Peninsula from a recent volcano to provide her with that information.

 

Gina Waibl -

·    Working with other organisations on building links, e.g. Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust

·    Working with landowners about the needs of farmers

·    Water quantity information continues – possibly community consultation on Banks Peninsula about how the water looks in the future.

 

Councillor Pham -

·    Advised she would revisit her actions and liaise with Rik Tainui about them.

 

Aurora Smith -

·    Advised that the project for Wairewa bank stabilisation may be something Jaleesa would like to be involved in.

 

Rik Tainui -

·    Noted that Martin Rutledge had visited Ōnuku Marae about the stream above the Marae, regarding protection of Ōnuku’s water source.

·    Met with Lynn McClelland, Assistant Chief Executive Strategic Policy and Performance, regarding the Long Term Plan and a connection to the Akaroa water supply.

 

Erana Riddell -

·    Advised she would be relooking at what actions she is supporting relating to timing.

·    Noted the need to keep Runaka members safe with so much happening - advise if you need anything from the Committee.

 

Tori Peden -

·    There is Community Board support for Okains Bay and Koukourarata with a submission regarding connection to the water supply, so we will add Ōnuku to the submission.

 

Trudi Bishop -

·    Advised she will be refocussing on the actions this year with climate change, e.g. fish passage, erosion etc to underpin everything we are doing.

 

 

The meeting was closed with a Karakia/Whakamutunga.

 

 

Meeting concluded at 6.10pm.

1.1.1   Helen Tullett, Carbon Coach at Project Lyttelton

Helen’s role as a Carbon Coach for Project Lyttelton is supported by the Christchurch City Council via a grant from the Sustainability Fund that was set up last year to assist community action on climate change. The role helps households, community groups and businesses in Lyttelton to reduce their carbon footprint.

 

This initiative by Project Lyttelton is a first of its kind in New Zealand. It is a one-year pilot programme. Helen will work with households and hold workshops and events in conjunction with other organisations.

 

Helen looks at energy, food, transport, water and waste to help people understand how to measure and reduce usage across these areas.

 

More information can be found by emailing Helen at communitycarboncoach@lyttelton.net.nz or by visiting the Lyttelton Community Carbon Coach Facebook page.

 

1.1.2   Sally Gaw, Director of Environmental Science, School of Physical & Chemical Sciences, University of Canterbury

Sally will present information on research into microplastics in water and the potential ecological and human health impacts.

 

Less than 5mm (or half a centimetre) in diameter, microplastics are classed in two categories; primary microplastics are those designed to be small, like microbeads or glitter, while secondary microplastics are formed in the environment as larger plastic items break down. This can include fibres released from textiles and clothes during washing.
