 DIRECTORATE OVERVIEW

 Administration:

 Directorate Administration remains within its operating budget.


 CBD and Special Projects:

 The expenditure on CBD and Special Projects is still operating below budget.
Environmental Health:

Income for this period, although still under that forecasted, has seen the margin decrease
significantly from the previous reporting period. It is expected that we will still meet that
forecasted.

Expenditure still remains less than budgeted. This can be attributed to an under spend in the
salary component due to two vacancies within the unit, Manager and Senior Environmental
Health Officer. The Manager has now commenced so this will see the under spent in this
area decrease. This still leaves one vacancy and until this has been filled an up spend will
remain. All other areas of expenditure are within budget estimates.


Liquor Licensing:

Income is up by approximately 21% above that budgeted. This is due, in the main, to an
increase in special licence applications and two new premises. Next month is also predicted
to see an increase in income as the Liquor Licences for the Invercargill Licensing Trust are
due (approximately 25). These are for a three year period.


Animal Control:

Income is up by 13% from that forecasted due, in the main, to an increase in dog registration.
Expenditure, although below that budgeted, is tracking on target.

The new pound is nearing completion and is expected to come in on budget.

                                                          Report prepared by: John Youngson
                                                             Manager − Environmental Health


Building:

The building consents department's budget is approximately $61000 over budget.

This is due mainly to the unexpected insurance payout to Riskpool and also to building
consent numbers being lower than anticipated.

It should be noted that Council has replaced the four positions that had been resigned with
two positions to reflect the downturn in consents in early 2012.

It is anticipated that the building consent numbers will rise towards the end of 2012.

                                                           Report prepared by: Simon Tonkin
                                                       Manager − Building Regulation Services


Compliance:

Variance − $26677.00

The Division is currently not meeting budgetary expectations. This is due to the resignation
of one of the Compliance Officers in early March. A new Compliance Officer starts on
28 May 2012. The fact that we have been short staffed has impacted on income.

                                                        Report prepared by: Debbie McCallum

Resource Management:

The Resource Management activity is under budget with lower than expected income and
expenditure.


Valuation:

The Valuation activity is within its budget estimate.

        DELEGATIONS FOR THE HEARING OF PLAN CHANGES AND THE
                        DISTRICT PLAN REVIEW

Report Prepared by:           Councillor Darren Ludlow


SUMMARY

The report is to clarify the role and delegations for the hearing and making of decisions in
relation to Plan Changes and the District Plan Review.


RECOMMENDATIONS

It is recommended that:

1.     The Hearings Panel − District Plan is delegated the power to hear, consider and
       make decisions on Plan Changes and the District Plan Review.
2.     That Committee has the ability to co−opt professional assistance if required for the
       hearing of Plan Changes and the District Plan Review.
3.     The Invercargill City Council Governance Statement is amended to incorporate
       recommendations 1 and 2.
4.     The Making Good Decisions Course is available to any Councillor wanting to
       participate in the formal District Plan Review Hearing process.


IMPLICATIONS

1.       Has this been provided for in the Long Term Plan/Annual Plan?
         N/A.
2.       Is a budget amendment required?
         N/A.
3.       Is this matter significant in terms of Council's Policy on Significance?
         Because of the subsequent changes to the Governance Statement this report will
         also be included in the Finance and Policy Agenda for 29 May 2012.
4.       Implications in terms of other Council Strategic Documents or Council Policy?
         Will require an amendment to the Invercargill City Council Governance Statement.
5.      Have the views of affected or interested persons been obtained and is any further
        public consultation required?
         N/A.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS

Not significant.


DELEGATIONS FOR THE HEARING OF PLAN CHANGES AND THE DISTRICT PLAN REVIEW

The question has arisen as to which Committee of Council should be hearing and deciding
on submissions on District Plan Changes and the upcoming District Plan review (hearings on
submissions related to this review are likely to take place in 2013/14).

The Governance Statement provides for the Regulatory Services Committee to consider
matters relating to the Resource Management Act, and the Hearings Panel is responsible for
hearing, considering and deciding resource consent applications under the Resource
Management Act 1991.

This means that the Hearings Panel's delegation is limited to hearing and making decisions
on consent applications, while the Regulatory Services Committee can hear submissions
related to Plan Changes and the District Plan Review.

I still consider that the ability to hear submissions on Plan Changes and the District Plan
Review should remain under the Regulatory Services Committee (as the Local Government
Act recommends some distance is kept between District Plan matters and the rest of Council
policy setting).

Some hearings can be of a specialist, technical nature and for these the Committee should
be able to co−opt the assistance of relevant professional expertise.

Under the present decision making process, the Committee makes a recommendation to
Council for ratification. I believe that this should be amended to allow the establishment of a
new committee − Hearings Panel − District Plan.

I would also suggest that those Councillors who want to be involved in plan change and plan
review hearings and have not already done so be required to undertake the Ministry for the
Environment's "Making Good Decisions − Training and Certification of Resource
Management Act Decision—Makers". This will give them a useful grounding in the hearing
process for matters relating to the Resource Management Act.

It is important those taking part in the Hearings process for the District Plan are available for
the entire process. As with the Long Term Plan, Annual Plans and other Hearings, failure to
be present for all submissions will mean a Hearings Panel member cannot deliberate on the
final decision.

The Governance Statement would need to be amended to accommodate these changes


CONCLUSION

A new committee, Hearings Panel − District Plan, should be established and given delegated
authority for District Plan and Plan Change matters and be given the delegation to make the
final decision on behalf of Council. This committee sits alongside Finance and Policy, but
still under Regulatory Services.

The ability to co−opt professional expertise when required will ensure robust decision making.
Making the resource management training available to those Councillors who have not
already gone through it is essential to ensuring an understanding of the RMA Hearing
process.

It is my intention to signal this altered proposal to the Regulatory Services Committee before
it goes forward for consideration by the Finance and Policy Committee and a final decision is
then ratified by full Council.

           PROPOSED ROAD NAMES FOR SUBDIVISION SUB120091131
                   360 BAINFIELD ROAD AND 40 RETREAT ROAD

Report Prepared by:           Christine North − Property Database Officer


SUMMARY

Inverurie subdivision of Lot 3 DP 13799 and Lot 9 Deeds Plan 96 is to be developed over
three stages which will create 75 rural/residential lots and four roads. The four roads will be
vested with Council as part of Stage 1 of the development.


RECOMMENDATIONS

That the proposed four roads be named as follows:

Road 1 − Inverurie Drive
Road 2 − Lochend Close
Road 3 − Mosshead Common
Road 4 − Hillbrae Rise

REQUEST FOR ROAD NAME

The Invercargill City Council is responsible for the allocation of road names and numbers
within the District. This is an important function because it allows residents, visitors and
emergency services to locate properties with the minimum of inconvenience. In issuing rural
and urban road names and numbers the Council is guided by the Australian/New Zealand
Standard (AS/NZS 4819:2003).

Council's policy is to allow road names that are short (25 characters or less), single word
names, which are readily pronounced and spelt. Road names that closely resemble other
names in either spelling or pronunciation should be avoided, as there is the potential for
confusion for emergency services. There is also a desire to avoid the same name for a road
and an area.

Bonisch Consultants on behalf of A and B Johnston have submitted the following proposed
names in order of preference for the Inverurie development.

•    Inverurie Drive / Huntly / Burnbank

•    Lochend Close I Huntly / Burnban

•    Mosshead Common / Huntly / Burnbank

•    HiHbrae Rise I Huntly / Burnbank

All names are taken from the Aberdeen area of Scotland other than Lochend which is found
in the Edinburgh region. The applicant has a strong connection to the Aberdeen area and
the road names reflect this.

The road suffixes reflect the environment that each street will have once the subdivision is
completed. Hillbrae Rise is a road which rises to the south; Mosshead Common is
surrounded on one side by reserve land; and Lochend Close is a short enclosed roadway.

The four preferred names of lnverurie, Lochend, Mosshead and Hillbrae are of a Scottish
theme and do not clash with existing road names. Huntly and Burnbank are similar to
existing road names, Hunt and Burns Streets, are not desirable and should not be
considered.

A diagram showing the proposed development and road names is attached as Appendix 1.

100 AND 116 GORE STREET, BLUFF

Since the last Bluff Community Board meeting I have discussed the matter of loose verandah
soffit linings with the owner and have agreed that the owner can engage a contractor to
remove the loose linings.

This work was completed by Phoenix Services on 2 May 2012

The reason Council allowed the owner to remove the linings was because the owner was
disputing how dangerous the verandah actually was and whether the total removal of the
verandah was necessary.

After viewing the situation it was agreed that at this time only parts of the soffit linings were
dangerous and as that owner wanted to engage his own contractor.

The outcome is still the same − dangerous portions have been removed


232 GORE STREET, BLUFF − RAVENSDOWN BUILDING

A building consent has been received to demolish the building at 232 Gore Street.

Council has asked some questions over removal of foundations and how drains are to be
sealed, and also advised the applicant that a resource consent is also required.

The questions were asked on 20 April 2012 and as at 14 May 2012 no reply had been
received.


147 BARROW STREET, BLUFF

Owner has applied for a resource consent for the demolition of the dwelling. Council agreed
that the dwelling could be demolished prior to receiving the application.

Resource consent staff are working with the owner to ensure the demolition material is
removed from the site.

A garage has been allowed to remain.


36 OCEAN BEACH ROAD, BLUFF

The owner has advised that he will make the building safe and demolish the dwelling soon.
