MATTERS ARISING FROM THE MINUTES

New Footpath Kaiaua School to Whakatiwai Settlement

Cr Harris updated the members on the discussion he had held with the Roading Manager regarding the proposed measures to improve the safety for school children using the route from the Whakatiwai Settlement to the Kaiaua primary school.

In discussions on the matter, it was agreed that the less costly option of lowering the speed limit to 50 kph at the location be adopted rather than the construction of a footpath.


Kaiaua Boating Club/Camping Area

The Community Services Manager updated the members on the status of further investigation concerning the Boating Club/Camping area following the hearing of submissions to the Freedom Camping Bylaw.


Ngatea Hall Sound System

The status of investigations into problems with the quality of the sound system was requested. Staff advised that it appears the tri-pod is faulty and is unable to be easily adjusted disadvantaging some people. The Community Development Officer is presently undertaking steps to address this problem.


Waharau Dump Station – Effluent Disposal

Community Services staff is awaiting feedback from NZMCA (NZ Motor Caravan Association) as regards to the existing dump station and is also seeking resource consent information from HDC’s Planning team to resolve this matter concerning the discharge of the effluent from the dump station.

Kaiaua – Kopu Leg of Hauraki Rail Trail - Teena Cornes and Adrian de Laborde

Teena Cornes (Chairperson of the Hauraki Rail Trail Charitable Trust) and Adrian de Laborde (Hauraki Rail Tail – Project Manager) were in attendance and provided an update to the Committee on the progress of the Kaiaua to Kopu leg of the trail.

The update provided the following key points:

  • Feasibility study to be undertaken to determine the route.
  • Consultation is still required with iwi, DoC, farmers and other effected parties.
  • Construction will be staged dependent on funding.
  • Funding of $4million is needed to complete this section. 

Ngatea Main Street Garden Renewals

It was requested that the Parks and Reserves Manager remove the damaged planter box that was shown for removal in the Ngatea Garden Main Street Renewal plan. Staff advised that once this year’s bed rebuilding and planting programme has been confirmed, it will be reported back to the Ward Committee for approval.


Swimming Pool – Pool Toy

At the end of the last pool season, one of Council’s pool toys had to be retired; having provided many years of service and being unable to be repaired.

Staff suggested that an effective solution for the future would be to have a pool toy at each facility that would provide greater level of service to the community, and minimise damage to the toys by minimising transportation between Councils pools.

This would require the purchase of two additional pool toys for the district pools costing a total of $17,655 with a third of the cost from each Ward of $5,885.00 to be paid from the Wards Community Recreational Facilities Development Fund.

RESOLVED

THAT the Plains Ward Committee approves to share the cost of purchasing two additional pool toys with the Paeroa and Waihi Wards at a cost of $5,885.00, to be funded from the Plains Ward Community Facilities and Recreational Development Fund.
