Proposed tauranga city plan

Proposed Tauranga City Plan

Overview

Karen Marjoribanks and Campbell Larking


Background

Background

  • Review required by RMA

  • Commenced 2008, Draft Plan 2009 for feedback

  • October 2009 Proposed Tauranga City Plan Notified

  • March – November 2010 – Hearings on submissions and further submissions


Background1

Background

  • Decisions made and released – 26 March 2011

  • Both Plans had to be considered from that date forward.

  • Appeals have closed. (Appeals could only be made by people who had made submissions).


District vs city plan which one do we use

District vs City Plan – which one do we use?

  • Both Plans have had to be considered since 26 March 2011.

  • Now Appeals have closed – some parts of the Proposed City Plan which are not subject to appeals are the only matters which need to be considered in any building consent/resource consent application.

  • For parts of the Proposed City Plan which are under appeal – both Plans will still have to be considered in any building consent/resource consent application.


How do i work out what plan i need to use

How do I work out what Plan I need to use?

  • Internet version of the Proposed City Plan (Decisions Version) identifies (via a text box) Rules deemed operative.

  • This will be updated as appeals are resolved – more rules will become operative.

Managing sediment pollution

Managing sediment pollution

Paul Baunton

Manager, City Development


Why manage sediment runoff

Why Manage Sediment Runoff?

  • Reduce amount of sediment entering waterways

  • Reduce asset maintenance costs – sumps, pipelines, ponds e.g. 140 ponds cost approx. $ 55k each to clean

  • Comprehensive catchment consents – BOPRC

  • Reduce neighbour v. neighbour disputes

  • Sustainable practice – reduce pollutants – cement wash down pits


Is this something we have to do or simply nice to do

Is this something we have to do or simply nice to do?

  • RMA – must manage effects on environment

  • LGA – provide affordable services to community

  • Provide for economic wellbeing


What s required

What’s Required?

  • City Plan 4C.2 – earthworks permitted (no volume limit) providing:

    • Excavation > 100m2 – install sediment control outlined in Appendix 4P – (see pamphlet)

    • Single point of entry (metalled)

    • Earthwork cuts > 1.5m and steeper than 1v:1h – must retain prior to building fdns or within 3 months of cut being made


Approach

Approach

  • Pro-active - Staff assist builders/small scale earthworks operators to understand what is required

  • If no change in behaviours then RMA and Pollution Prevention Bylaw allows for enforcement – e.g. stop work, fine


Building code compliance

Building Code Compliance

Roger Bruce

Manager, Building Inspections


How we got to this point

How we got to this point

  • Leaky building crisis

  • Updated - Building Act 2004

  • Building Consent Authorities (BCA’s)

  • Regulation 6 - relating to the BCA’s observance of policies, procedures and systems


Regulation 6

Regulation 6

Regulation 6 relates to records and requires the BCA to record:

  • The means by which it [the BCA] ensures that it implements effectively the policies, procedures and systems required by these regulations; and,

  • The DECISIONS it makes under the policies, procedures and systems required by these regulations; and,

  • The REASONS for the DECISIONS; and,

  • The OUTCOMES of the DECISIONS.


Where we are today

Where we are today

  • Our standard processing checklist shows what we need to check.

  • If we don’t have all the info we need from your BC application, a Request for Information (RFI) is generated and the processing ‘clock’ stops until we get that information.

  • This means your building project is delayed and it can cost your clients extra money.


What can you do

What can you do?

  • Ensure all your applications have all the required information first time.

  • Consider introducing peer reviews of ready-to-lodge applications.

  • Focus on Building Code requirements first and design with those in mind.
