2   MATTERS ARISING

         Item 4: Genesis Energy Turangi Aquatic Centre 2008/09
         The Chairman advised that he had received an email from Council’s
         Management Accountant advising that Waimakariri District Council
         was currently putting in a pool facility at a cost of $9.25m. The
         Chairman commented that the Turangi Aquatic Centre was therefore
         good value, where the cost was less than half that price.

         Item 7: Turangi Tongariro Safer Community Council
         The Chairman advised Mrs Smallman [Chairman of the Turangi
         Tongariro Safer Community Council], who had been absent at the
         previous meeting that the placement of cameras in the Town Centre
         had been discussed at the previous meeting.

3    PIHANGA HEALTH – TURANGI GP SITUATION                         [A53-22]

The Chairman observed that a letter [copy circulated] had been received from
the Chairman of Pihanga Health – CEO Lake Taupo PHO, which outlined the
current situation of general practice services at the Turangi Community Health
Centre.

Discussion ensued during which the following issues were raised:

      Telephone numbers
      The Chairman tabled an email received from Paul Leslie of Telecom NZ
      explaining why the Health Centre had been given a 384 number rather
      than a 386 number.
      It was observed that the Health Centre had signed up for Business
      Services, ISDN, which service enabled the operation of a switchboard or
      similar for a number of other users in the same building, as was the
      case at the Health Centre and it was also more cost-effective, whereas a
      386 service was used for standard telephone services in the Turangi
      area.
      Accordingly the public needed to be advised of the new number with an
      advertising campaign through the Turangi Chronicle.          The phone
      number was not listed in the current phone directory through an error
      made by Telecom but it would be listed in the 2010 issue. Cr Keepa
      suggested that a member of the PHO be invited to address the Board.

      Health Centre name - The name was identified as causing another
      communication problem where locally it had about four names. The
      correct name was Turangi Community Health Centre.

    The Chairman advised that the Board would readdress those matters once
    the Turangi/Tongariro Area Manager had returned from annual leave, to
    enable the formulation of a reply.

     4754        RESOLVED

                 THAT THE LETTER FROM MR PAUL LESLIE FROM TELECOM BE
                 RECEIVED
                                                       Smallman/Keepa

4    TURANGI & DISTRICT WOMEN’S CLUB                                [A53-54]

     The Chairman observed that a letter [copy circulated] had been received
     from the Turangi & District Women’s Club advising of their contribution of
     $1,500 towards the installation of the new steps at the Genesis Energy
     Turangi Aquatic Centre.

     It was noted that the Turangi & District Women’s Club were fundraising
     for more pool resources and equipment. The Pool staff had reported good
     attendances.
     4755      RESOLVED

                 THAT THE LETTER FROM THE TURANGI & DISTRICT WOMEN’S
                 CLUB BE RECEIVED AND THAT THEY BE THANKED FOR THEIR
                 CONTRIBUTION.
                                                      McCarthy/O’Brien


5   CRESCENT RESERVE [KOHINEHEKE RESERVE]                       [A563760]

    The Senior Environmental Policy Planner’s report on the implementation
    of the Crescent Reserve [Kohineheke Reserve] Agreement and on
    possible implications thereof for the draft Taupo District Council
    Stormwater Strategy had been circulated.

     The report observed that two of the submissions received on Council’s
     Draft Stormwater Strategy had been from signatories to the Kohineheke
     Reserve Agreement. Those submitters had requested that Council take
     further action to implement the agreement. Resulting therefrom was a
     request from Council that the Board consider the issues raised and report
     back to Council.

     The Chairman invited the Senior Environmental Policy Planner to address
     the Board, more particularly on the draft stormwater strategy rather than
     the agreement. The Planner noted that the Strategy was consistent with
     the Agreement. The Chairman also concurred that the Strategy did not
     interfere with the Agreement and he suggested that the submitters had
     used the Strategy as a platform for raising concerns about the
     Agreement. He suggested that the concerns be noted but were not
     appropriately addressed under the Strategy process

     The Chairman suggested that when Council replied to the two submitters
     that the submitters be advised that if they have concerns that Council
     was not upholding its obligations under the Agreement, they should
     address those concerns in writing to the CEO.

     4756        RESOLVED

                 THAT THE TAUPO DISTRICT COUNCIL BE ADVISED THAT
                 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CRESCENT RESERVE [KOHINEHEKE
                 RESERVE] AGREEMENT IS CONSISTENT WITH COUNCIL’S
                 DRAFT STORMWATER STRATEGY.
                                                      Smallman/Keepa

6   TURANGI TONGARIRO PROMOTIONAL ASSOCIATION – STRATEGIC
    PLAN STEERING COMMITTEE – WORKSHOP 29 SEPTEMBER 2009
                                                 [A53/5]

     Mr O’Brien reported on the recent Steering Committee workshop held on
     29 September 2009.

6 October 2009

     The Chairman observed the presence of the Council Relationships Officers
     and assumed their attendance was in relation to Maori land being ideal
     for industrial purposes.

     Mr O’Brien observed that the Manager, Destination Lake Taupo, would
     present the Working Group with a document in response to the meeting
     held on 29 September, confirming the Vision Statement at a further
     workshop to take place in a few weeks time. The main action item of
     requesting a Maori representative being included in the group was agreed
     to by the Chairman.

     The Strategic Communications Officer commented that Turangitukua had
     control over a large area of Maori Land and therefore Turangi was in a
     unique situation. He suggested that the strategic direction as progress
     forward was made, should be in collaboration/discussion and that Council
     should engage with the relevant Hapu, not just Turangitukua.

     The Chairman commented that Taupo District Council 2050 Strategy
     indicated that a great amount of Maori land was identified as an area for
     growth and that Council was receptive to progressing development of the
     area.

     The minutes from that workshop were tabled.

     4757        RESOLVED

                 THAT THE INFORMATION BE RECEIVED AND THAT MR O’BRIEN
                 BE THANKED FOR HIS PRESENTATION.
                                                      Stewart/Smallman


7   COMMUNITY CONCERNS                                              [M80/2]

     Mrs Lockyer
       Shabby Flags - in the Town Centre: were looking worn, torn and
       ripped. It was suggested new flags, in storage, be used to replace the
       shabby ones. Mrs Lockyer would discuss the issue with the Turangi
       Works Superintendent.
       Lines Company charges – huge increase in cost. It was agreed it
       was an issue but out of the Board’s scope. It was suggested that a
       submission could be made to the Minister of Energy. Mrs Lockyer had
       a petition in progress in her shop.

     Ms Stewart
       Community Grants – people had been enquiring. Committee
       Secretary advised that a Public Notice had been placed in the Taupo
       Times and Turangi Chronicle with closing date for submissions on 27
       October 2009.

     Mr O’Brien
        Graffiti - Raised the question of graffiti and getting rid of it. It was
        observed that if on Council reserves it could be removed immediately.
        The Chairman advised that should also apply to walkways, covered by
        the Fencing Act. However, that needed to be double checked. Nothing
