Submissions - Representation Review

 

The following people appeared before the Council and made oral statements in support of their submissions and replied to questions from Elected Members.

 

Dale O’Reilly – Bunnythorpe Community (17)

Ms O’Reilly spoke to her submission and made the following additional comments:

 

-           Bunnythorpe was a distinct community of interest that had been consistently growing since the 1991 census. 

 

-           The Community over the years had been asking for a number of road safety improvements including; exhaust braking signage, that the 70km signage on Stoney Creek Road be moved and diagonal yellow lines be placed on the on Maple Street intersection to improve traffic safety.

 

-           Only one third of Bunnythorpe was considered in Council’s planning documents.

 

-           Signage for Bunnythorpe Recreation Ground and Bunnythorpe Domain were incorrect, which the Community had continually asked Council to  fix.

 

-          The above examples were reasons why having a Community Board would benefit both Council and the Bunnythorpe community by having a formal process of engagement that was not currently available.

 

Malcolm Frith (Late Submission)

 

Councillor Karen Naylor entered the meeting at 9.33am

 

Mr Frith spoke to his submission and made the following additional comments:

 

-         Believed that there was a lack of response to the review and believed notice of it should have been advertised more widely.

 

-         There was more of a disconnect with Councillors on a community level than ever before.

 

-         Mr Frith was supportive of local wards as that enabled better connection with residents and the ability to deal with local issues.

 

-        Reminded Council that not all residents receive information in electronic format and raised concerns that Council publications had removed some Councillors contact details.

4.  That, pursuant to Section 19N of the Local Electoral Act 2001, the Council’s interim proposal for its representation arrangements to apply for elections to be held in Palmerston North City on 12 October 2019 be confirmed, as follows:

 

·          All Councillors to be elected on a city-wide basis, that is, by the electors        of the city as a whole, with no wards to be established.

·          The Council to comprise the Mayor and 15 Councillors.

·          No communities or community boards to be established in Palmerston        North City.

 

5.  That the reasons for confirming the Council’s interim proposal for Councillors to be elected on a city-wide basis, include:

 

·      Palmerston North City comprises a single community of interest which covers the whole city.  The city is geographically compact and relatively small.  There is only one major business district, suburban shopping areas are small and many people reside in one part of the city but work in another.

·      While it is acknowledged that the city also comprises many secondary communities of interest based on individual suburbs and villages, the boundaries of these areas are relatively precise and the populations vary, so it would not be practicable for each community to be represented by an individual Councillor.

·      A city-wide election will also enable all electors to participate in choosing all Councillors. 

·      Of the 20 submissions received on the Council’s interim proposal, 11 submitters preferred Councillors to be elected on a city-wide basis.  In comparison, 9 submitters supported Councillors being elected on a ward basis.

 

6.  The reasons for confirming that the Council comprise 15 Councillors plus the Mayor include:

 

·          The proposed number of Councillors will enable the workload to be        shared.

·          The proposed number allows for more diversity of Councillors and        encourages a greater variety of ideas and suggestions.

·          Of the 20 submissions received, 17 submitters supported the Council        comprising 15 Councillors and the Mayor, with 3 submitters expressing        a preference for a fewer number of Councillors.

 

7.  That the reasons for confirming the Council’s interim proposal not to establish any communities or community boards include:

 

·      The Council is satisfied that the city does not include any communities that are sufficiently distinct or isolated as to require representation of this nature.

·      Of the 20 submissions received, 11 supported the non-establishment of community boards, whilst 8 submissions supported their establishment.

 

8.   That the submissions be accepted or rejected or received, in whole or in part, in the manner set out in the Appendix, and for the reasons set out above or as stated in the Appendix, as detailed below.

 

9.  That it be noted that the Council’s final proposal provides for effective representation for communities of interest within the city and the Council is satisfied that all submissions have been considered and that there has been compliance with the decision making, consultation and other requirements of the Local Government Act 2002 and the Local Electoral Act 2001. 

 

Clauses 161.4 to 161.9 inclusive above were carried 15 votes to 0, the voting being as follows:

For:

The Mayor (Grant Smith) and Councillors Brent Barrett, Susan Baty, Adrian Broad, Gabrielle Bundy-Cooke, Vaughan Dennison, Lew Findlay QSM, Leonie Hapeta, Jim Jefferies, Lorna Johnson, Duncan McCann, Karen Naylor, Bruno Petrenas, Aleisha Rutherford and Tangi Utikere.
