1.   Brief Summary

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board Submissions Committee to consider the preparation of Board Feedback to the Council on the Draft Housing and Business Choice Plan Change, Draft Coastal Hazards Plan Change, Draft Heritage Plan Change and Draft Radio Communications Pathway Plan Change.

1.2       Draft Housing and Business Choice Plan Change

Population growth, housing issues, including affordability and climate change are prompting a re-think of Ōtautahi-Christchurch’s planning rules. The Council are proposing changes to the District Plan to provide for continued growth and prosperity.

This is to bring the District Plan in line with government direction that has been given via the National Policy Statement-Urban Development and the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other Matters) Amendment Act to enable more development in the city’s existing urban footprint. 

Some of the changes the Council are making are legal requirements of the new national direction and cannot be influenced by the Council, or community feedback. However, there are some changes that can be adapted based on our residents’ views such as building heights above the new baselines.

1.3       Draft Coastal Hazards Plan Change

Communities in low-lying inland and coastal areas around New Zealand and the world are facing challenges with the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise.

Ōtautahi-Christchurch and Te Pātaka-o-Rākaihautū Banks Peninsula are already experiencing the effects of climate change. The future is expected to bring warmer weather across all four seasons, more days of extreme wind, and more intense rainfall.

This proposed plan change sets out a risk-based approach that involves managing development, land use and subdivision activities according to the level of risk in that location, acknowledging the uncertainty (of when land may be affected by rising sea levels) and the vulnerability of the activity to risk.

1.4       Draft Heritage Plan Change

To make sure developments happen in the right places, we are proposing 11 new Residential Heritage Areas across the city be identified for protection in the District Plan to recognise  Ōtautahi-Christchurch’s special identity.

It is also planned to add around 65 buildings, items and building interiors to the Schedule of Significant Historic Heritage.

1.5       Draft Radio Communications Pathway Plan Change

As a Council, we must consider and protect our city’s strategic infrastructure such as Lyttelton Port and Christchurch International Airport. This also includes other important infrastructure that allows emergency services like police, fire and ambulance, to communicate.

Through the separate Draft Housing and Business Choice Plan Change, these Radio Communication Pathways would meet the threshold to be listed as “Qualifying Matters”. This means the level of intensification allowed is therefore reduced from what the government has directed.

There is a risk of buildings, structures and trees blocking communication paths and impacting on the ability for emergency services to operate effectively.
