RM 210103 - Cumulative Effects Assessment for Wastewater Discharge

 

Update: 27 September, 2021

A s92 response was received on 5/8/21. A full peer of review of this information has now been completed.  Additional information / clarification has also been sought as a result of a meeting with concerned residents in August.

The accumulative effects of waste water were not considered to be fully addressed in the s92 response and it is considered that this aspect of the proposed subdivision has the potential to result in a significant adverse environmental effect.  Further expert analysis is required to assess whether the effects of nitrogen and pathogens from the cumulative wastewater fields will be no more than minor.  For this reason, CHBDC is seeking to commission a report under section 92(2)(b) of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). Based on advice from Hawke’s Bay Regional Council the report will be commissioned from Pattle Delamore Partners.   A notification decision cannot be made until this report has been reviewed.

S92 partial response received 5/8/21 and issued for Peer Review. See supporting documents below:

RM210103 Engineering Services Master Plan Wakarara Part A

RM210103 Engineering Services Master Plan Wakarara Part B

Update: 5 August, 2021

A resource consent application was received from Springhill Farms Ltd on 17/4/21 for a rural subdivision located at the corner of Wakarara and SH50. The proposal is to create 312 rural lots over 16 stages with lot sizes ranging from 4000m2 – 1.6ha.

The resource consent application is being processed and has not yet been granted. A s92 request for further information was issued on 3/6/21. Council is working with the developer to obtain the information necessary to complete a thorough assessment of the application.

While there may be an expectation of community consultation, Council in its function under the Resource Management Act 1991 is not able to pick and choose what it notifies for public consultation. The Act and the current operative District Plan sets those things out. Our team are working through the normal processing approach and are yet to finalise whether the development meets the threshold of a controlled activity and if there are grounds or not for public notification.

We appreciate and recognise there is high community interest with this potential subdivision being one of a number of potential subdivisions that Council is currently processing.

In the proposed District Plan that is currently out for formal consultation - closing on 6 August, 2021 – developments of this scale would be subject to more stringent consenting conditions. There are a number of new initiatives that Council introduced as part of the new Long Term Plan to encourage smart growth in the district; this includes making water tanks on all homes compulsory and increasing Development Contributions, which will see developers pay for 100% of costs associated with growth identified in the plan.
