Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 10-16 December 2018

You’ll see below the diary is rather a mess, with links that the newly upgraded system insists ought to be embedded – but which it can’t embed, paragraphs imposed where linebreaks ought to be… But, I’ll get on top of it over the summer (I hope).

The end-of-year updates…

Auckland Council’s politicians are cramming for Christmas this week. The council has 22 local board meetings listed (including one board’s committee), the finance & performance committee meets twice (regular business Tuesday, budget proposal Wednesday), the strategic procurement committee meets on Wednesday, and the governing body will decide on Thursday on the budget it wants to put out for public consultation in the New Year.

A couple of committee sessions have slipped by already this week. If you want to catch up with them, you can check the council streaming facility at http://councillive.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/.

Events & listeds…

I’ve dropped a couple of 2019 event dates into the diary, will add detail in the New Year.

I have just one listed company event left for the year (Vital Healthcare’s annual meeting next week) and one interim result announcement listed for February.

The diary is updated weekly and lists auctions, council meetings & agendas, hearings & submissions, economic release dates, events, Parliament order paper items and securities.

Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 26 November-2 December 2018

Tuesday: The council planning agenda. You can click through below to the full agenda, or to the many controversial items on it.

Auckland Council’s planning committee has a very long agenda to work through on Tuesday, starting with public input on Panuku’s Unlock Panmure programme, moving on to:

  • affordability & desired housing mix
  • the upper North Island supply chain strategy (starting with ports)
  • beginning the update of the council’s plan through to 2050
  • an update on the city centre-Mangere light rail proposal
  • plan changes including effects on volcanic viewshafts
  • proposed scheduling of sites of significance to mana whenua
  • Tamaki regeneration land exchanges
  • the freshwater management national policy statement
  • the Auranga plan change at Drury (including an appeal notice), and
  • in the confidential section of the agenda, changes to Northcote’s high level project plan.

The opportunities for heated debate are numerous, given the volume of community input already on topics such as airport rail & viewshafts. Done in a disciplined manner, the meeting could be over by dusk.

Other business for the week

And that, of course, is not all. The council has opened some new consent applications for submissions, including parts of the Quay St seawall project, and several auctionrooms will be in action. Parliament resumes sitting on Tuesday.

The diary is updated weekly and lists auctions, council meetings & agendas, hearings & submissions, economic release dates, events, Parliament order paper items and securities.

Council links

All Auckland Council agendas can be reached via http://infocouncil.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/. The council livestreams (and archives) Town Hall meetings and some other meetings. You can check those at http://councillive.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/.

Updated: Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 5-11 November 2018

Updated 7 November 2018 with Auckland Council regulatory committee agenda links:
Auckland Council’s planning committee has a number of important items on its agenda on Tuesday – starting with public input (from the proposers) on the latest central waterfront proposal, another on Unlock Panmure, and a third on the metropolitan centre plan as it affects Papakura.

Council staff have a long list of changes to be made to the unitary plan – mostly small fixes, but I haven’t gone right through them. One that will be contentious concerns the special character areas overlay, in response to an Environment Court declaration.
Earlier story, 12 September 2018: Council wants overlay precedence over zone rules, even after court findings

There’s also a report on the proposed regional public transport plan – the council version of how it ought to be, distinct from the Auckland Transport version of these issues, which is about how to do it.

A report to the council’s strategic procurement committee contains an update on the $1 billion of central city capital projects the council has its budget for the next 10 years.

Among consent applications open to submissions, one is for an extension to the Half Moon Bay marina, a second is for the works to unscramble the entrances to Warkworth from State Highway 1, and a third is the public safety & nuisance bylaw, which contains a council proposal to ban fireworks.

The diary is updated weekly and lists auctions, council meetings & agendas, hearings & submissions, economic release dates, events, Parliament order paper items and securities.

Bob Dey Property Report diary, week 15-21 October 2018

Several new consent hearings, environment committee has notable items on agenda

Several resource consent applications around Auckland have moved from the submissions stage through to hearings during the next 2 months. You can check the applications below.

The one Auckland Council scheduled to meet this week, environment & community, has a number of notable items on its agenda – no matter what your perspective on environmental issues.

They include the council’s draft submissions on changes proposed to the Residential Tenancies Act, healthy homes standards, the emissions trading scheme & the 3 waters review.

Other business before that committee includes quarterly updates on targeted rates for water quality & the natural environment.

The committee has a confidential item on the acquisition of open space in 3 Kings (precise address not given), and the chair of the Puketapapa local board has a motion before his board on Thursday regarding the council’s deal with Fletcher Residential Ltd over allocation of open space & development of sports fields in the company’s 3 Kings quarry project.
