Ratepayers get small court victory in scrap over Mangawhai sewer scheme levies

High Court judge Ailsa Duffy has brought to an end an episode in the scrap over the secretively funded & heavily over cost Mangawhai Ecocare sewerage scheme.

The Mangawhai Ratepayers’ & Residents’ Association & its chair, Bruce Rogan, fought the imposition of rates to pay for the sewerage system after its cost blowout was exposed – the district council secretly borrowed $58 million for its capital cost – resulting in a Validation Act being passed as the association was heading to court for a judicial review.

In 2014, Justice Paul Heath found the Validation Act passed to make those rates lawful did just that – made them lawful.

Some ratepayers, led by Mr Rogan, refused to pay Kaipara District Council rates, and refused to pay Northland Regional Council rates when they discovered the regional council had no authority to hire the district council to collect them.

Justice Duffy found in an interim judgment that these regional council rates were unlawful. In a second judgment on that case yesterday, she quashed the regional council’s rates for the rating years 2011-12 to 2015-16 and also set aside the penalties imposed for non-payment.

However, she said the ratepayers’ association & Mr Rogan hadn’t sought reimbursement in their claim and she made no order directing the regional council to refund the relevant rates & penalties.

Updated: Wairau Valley car yard sells at over $2000/m² at Bayleys auction

Published 18 May 2017, updated 21 & 28 May 2017:
11 of the 21 commercial properties auctioned by Bayleys on Wednesday in its third Total Property portfolio for the year were sold under the hammer. 2 more have been sold post-auction – first, 100 Hinemoa St, Birkenhead, followed by 44 College Hill.

The first were sold, followed by a lull, but 2 of the most expensive offerings were well down the auction list.

One was a Wairau Valley car sales yard, set among a line of lowrise buildings jammed between the Northern Motorway & Wairau Rd on the North Shore, a stretch where the height limit is now 20m under the unitary plan.

The car yard was sold at $2365/m², which means it’s destined for multi-level development.

2 properties were sold for $4 million, both in Henderson. The first was a bank branch on Great North Rd, sold on a 5.5% yield, and the second, a Supercheap Auto outlet in the Lincoln North shopping centre, sold on a 5.3% yield.

Mangawhai campaigner explains what Government wouldn’t: Crown manager appointment was unlawful

While the Government was incapable this week of explaining the “technical uncertainties” that caused the “withdrawal” of Kaipara District Council Crown manager Peter Winder, the retired lawyer who has been the backbone of Mangawhai residents’ campaign against the council & Government over troubles arising from the cost blowout of their sewerage scheme had no difficulty at all.

Clive Boonham, who writes under the nom de plume Legal Eagle on the Kaipara Concerns website, said Associate Local Government Minister Jacqui Dean couldn’t say Mr Winder’s role had been terminated – “because in fact Peter Winder was never legally appointed. You can’t legally terminate something that never legally happened.”

Mr Boonham posted that charge on the website in November, along with an outline that Mr Winder’s terms of reference were also unlawful.

Mr Boonham kept pestering the Government for an answer, and when he got it on Wednesday he described the minister’s media statement as “a fine example of political duplicity”.

Mr Winder was one of 4 commissioners appointed to run the Kaipara council in 2012, taking over when the mayor & councillors resigned. An elected council was returned last October, and Mr Winder was appointed as Crown manager in July – for 3 years – to “support council members by taking responsibility for legal actions relating to past issues on their behalf”.

Mr Boonham explained the Government’s sudden withdrawal of Mr Winder:The Ministry of Local Government and the Department of Internal Affairs, which runs local government in New Zealand, would have obtained a legal opinion to examine the allegations that I had made. That opinion would have confirmed my submissions to be correct because the terms of reference were so blatantly in breach of the minister’s powers under the Local Government Act.

“The problem facing the ministry & the department was that, because of his ultra vires terms of reference, Peter Winder had acted unlawfully as Crown manager and made unlawful decisions, and taken unlawful actions on behalf of the Kaipara District Council. These relate to instructing legal counsel in respect of the judicial review proceedings in the high court and in respect of the appeal to the high court in respect of the district court claim by the Kaipara District Council against Bruce & Heather Rogan for arrears of Kaipara & Northland Regional Council rates.”

Mr Rogan chairs the Mangawhai Ratepayers & Residents Association, and put his own rates bill forward as a test case over the legality of rates claims.

Mr Boonham continued: “The consequence of the unlawful appointment is that legal counsel were not lawfully instructed by the Kaipara District Council and they have been acting, effectively, without any authority from the Kaipara District Council. The ramifications of this abuse of legal process has yet to be worked out.

“The only way that the unlawful decisions and acts of the Crown manager could be legalised retrospectively is through Parliament enacting validating legislation. But in an election year, with Winston [NZ First leader & MP for Northland Winston Peters] hovering with his axe in hand, that is unlikely to happen.

“The only way out of the mess is for the Government to try & bluff its way out of it by minimising what has happened. And that is what it has done.”

Mangawhai ratepayers protested, first, about the undisclosed cost blowout of their town’s new sewerage scheme, then at its poor performance. The Government pushed through a validation bill supporting past Kaipara council actions, but since then Mr Rogan, Mr Boonham & other ratepayers have rallied against the legality of rates being charged, including Kaipara’s collection of rates for the regional council.

Justice Ailsa Duffy is due to give her final ruling on the Rogan rates case in the Whangarei High Court on 30 May. But so far, Mr Boonham said, shehas held that the rates of the Northland Regional Council were unlawful and that the Kaipara District Council acted unlawfully in setting the rates of the Northland Regional Council, in adding penalties to the unpaid rates of the Northland Regional Council, and in taking steps to recover the rates of the unpaid rates of the Northland Regional Council.”

The Kaipara council would now have to instruct counsel to act for it in the court case, instead of Mr Winder handling it.

Winder loses Kaipara role over “technical uncertainties”

Peter Winder.

The Government has withdrawn Crown manager Peter Winder from the Kaipara District Council because of “technical uncertainties” about his appointment.

Mr Winder was one of the commissioners the Government appointed to replace the mayor & councillors in 2012, following the blowout in cost of the new Mangawhai sewage scheme. The council returned to democratic rule with the election of a new council last October.

Last July, then-Associate Local Government Minister Louise Upston said: “Mr Winder will support council members by taking responsibility for legal actions relating to past issues on their behalf. This will allow council members to focus on the district’s future.” The Crown manager role was to be for 3 years.

The present associate local government minister, Jacqui Dean, said yesterday: “The Kaipara District Council is transitioning well back to local governance, led by the strong leadership of the locally elected mayor & councillors. It is unfortunate I have to withdraw Peter Winder from his appointment as Crown manager to the council.

“Withdrawing Peter Winder as Crown manager is not a reflection of his actions but is due to technical uncertainties.

“Following an evaluation of assistance to the council, there are concerns about potential technical flaws with the Crown manager’s appointment & terms of reference. This does not bring into question prior actions of the Crown manager, but if the role continued there would be uncertainty about the legality of future actions.

“The withdrawal of the Crown manager is not a reflection on the performance of the council, nor was this issue created by the council. The council is performing well and in an effective manner. However, there is still a need for ongoing support to address the issues of the past.

“I want to assure the Kaipara community that the Government is committed to supporting the council. My officials are working with the council to explore options for providing ongoing support.

“The Crown observer (Barry Harris), who was appointed in October 2016, will continue to support the council by providing governance advice & guidance.”

Warkworth-Wellsford indicative route unveiled

The NZ Transport Agency released an indicative route on Tuesday for the State Highway 1 replacement between Warkworth & Northland.

Image above: The NZ Transport Agency’s map of the indicative route. Link below is to a larger version of the map.

The route will run well west of Warkworth then head east to skirt Wellsford & Te Hana, returning to the existing highway route at Vipond Rd, a few bends south of the border between the Auckland city/region & Northland province.

3 interchanges will connect the motorway with Warkworth, Wellsford at Wayby Valley Rd and Te Hana at Mangawhai Rd.

The project is a continuation of the road of national significance that started by bypassing Silverdale & Orewa and currently returns to the old route just south of Puhoi.

Transport Minister Simon Bridges said: “It will reduce the overall travel time between Warkworth & Te Hana by bypassing town centres, and avoiding the steep & winding Dome Valley. The straighter road alignment will also reduce the high crash rate through this area and reduce congestion & frustrations for motorists that often get stuck behind slow-moving heavy vehicles.”

The Dome Valley is not exactly steep but is constrained from widening, while the chosen route looks like it will cut through hillier terrain.

The 18.5km Puhoi-Warkworth section is scheduled to open in late 2021. It’s being delivered by the Northern Express Group (NX2) as a public-private partnership. The transport agency is working towards designating the 19.5km Warkworth-Wellsford section route by the end of 2018.

The route is also on the Government’s Connecting Northland strategy. Mr Bridges said: “Improving this road is part of the Government’s commitment to ensuring transport infrastructure is in place to connect communities, get people to places of work and freight to key export markets, which are all vital in helping Northland’s economy grow.”
