In addition to the Annual Plan 2022/23 consultation, we are also consulting on a number of other topics including the future of Council's housing provision, and two bylaw renewals; the Trade Waste and Wastewater Bylaw 2022 and the Water Supply Bylaw 2022.
We will undertake community consultation on the preferred location for a new aquatic facility. The two options are either Onekawa Park or the site on the corner of Tamatea Drive and Prebensen Drive. This consultation will outline the indicative costs of constructing the design that was proposed for the Tamatea Drive/Prebensen Drive site in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan. In 2023, we will consult on a finalised design, the timing of the project and how it should be funded.
We have 377 community houses with 80% tenanted by the elderly or people living with disabilities. The costs associated with providing community housing are increasing and the income we receive from rents no longer covers those costs. We have looked after our housing stock well but it is ageing and requires significant investment. We are asking our community for their feedback on the future of our community housing. These are the options we are considering: keep the housing, or sell part or all of it to another community housing provider.
Submissions on the Housing Consultation close 20 April.
We are reviewing the way we regulate and monitor liquid waste from commercial and industrial properties. The Trade Waste and Wastewater Drainage Bylaws are being consolidated to provide for better environmental protection and support the health of Ahuriri Estuary. The proposed bylaw will raise the standard of pre-treatment required and more fairly distribute the costs of maintaining the wastewater network.
Submissions on the Trade Waste and Wastewater Bylaw close 25 May.
Providing clean drinking water is a top priority for Council. The Water Supply Bylaw provides for the protection of our drinking water network and supports access to clean water across the city. We are updating our bylaw to reflect changes in legislation, standards and operational practices. The proposed changes are minor and incorporate the improvements we have recently made such as the establishment of a dedicated water take station for contractors with bulk water needs.
Submissions on the Water Supply Bylaw close 25 May.
