National Environmental Standard for Assessing and Managing Contaminants in Soil to Protect Human Health (“NES�) o

Pursuant to NES Soil Regulation 11, discretionary activity consent is required if an activity described in any of regulation 5(2) to (6) is not a permitted activity, controlled activity, or restricted discretionary activity. In this case the proposal is considered a discretionary activity because a detailed site investigation is not considered to have been provided for the entirety of the site (as required by Regulation 10(2)(a)).

Decision I have read the applications, supporting documents, and the report and recommendations on the consent applications. I am satisfied that I have adequate information to consider the matters required by the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) and make a decision under delegated authority on the applications. Acting under delegated authority, under sections 104 and 104B the applications are GRANTED.

1. Reasons The reasons for this decision are: 1.

In accordance with an assessment under s104(1)(a) of the RMA the actual and potential effects from the proposal will be mitigated and minimised, and will be acceptable as the consent-holder has demonstrated that appropriate methods, restrictions, and management approaches will be employed in relation to stormwater, earthworks, and potential contamination effects on human health or to air, water, or land. In particular: o

Construction and noise effects will appropriately mitigated or managed via measures outlined in the CNVMP.

o

Traffic effects will appropriately mitigated or managed via measures outlined in the TA and proposed conditions including the TTMP.

o

Tree trimming/alteration and works within the root zone of trees will be appropriately mitigated through the adherence to the proposed consent conditions relating to these works.

o

Potential construction effects associated with erosion, soil mobilisation, sedimentation to receiving water bodies and stormwater and groundwater discharges will be temporary in duration and will be appropriately avoided or mitigated via implementation of the ESCP.

o

Potential effects from ground settlement on buildings and heritage buildings are largely avoided as a result of the two performance standards requiring a maximum 1.5m trench depth and 2m building offset.

o

A draft CLMP has been prepared to manage potential adverse human health and environmental effects during earthworks arising from contaminated land and to also provide mitigation for unexpected discovery of contamination during earthworks.

LUC60118706 (WAT60149091, DIS60084185, DIS60084199, DIS60084208)

o

Potential flood hazards resulting from the diversion of overland flow paths and flood plains will be managed by implementing measures during construction to ensure the retention of overland flows where required.

o

Potential adverse dust effects created during excavation of the trenches will be managed and mitigated by implementing the measures outlined in the draft AQMP.

2.

In terms of positive effects, the proposal will enable the relocation and reconnection of network utilities required to be diverted as a result of the CRL main works to be completed in efficient and sustainable manner where effects of such diversions are inconsequential.

3.

In accordance with an assessment under s104(1)(b) of the RMA the proposal is consistent with the relevant statutory documents. In particular: o

Chapter B of the AUP contains the regional policy statement provisions and Issue 1 (urban growth and form), Issue 2 (infrastructure, transport and energy), Issue 5 (issues of significance to Mana Whenua) and Issue 6 (natural resources) are all of relevance to the Project. Objective B2.3.1 (1), Objective B2.3.1 (3) and Policy B2.3.2 (1) aim to manage development in a way that is efficient and functional whilst ensuring that the health and safety of people and communities are promoted. By facilitating the wider CRL Project, the application is consistent with the objectives and policies of Issue 1. Objective B3.2.1 (3) and Policy B3.2.2 (1) seek to enable the efficient development, operation, maintenance and upgrading of infrastructure. Policy B3.2.2 (8) seeks to avoid, remedy and mitigate the adverse effects from the construction, operation and maintenance or repair of infrastructure. The Project is consistent with the objectives and policies of Issue 2 because the Project will enable the efficient development and maintenance of infrastructure in order to make way for the major infrastructure of the CRL. Policy B6.2.2 (1) seeks to provide Mana Whenua with the opportunity to actively participate in the sustainable management of natural and physical resources. Policy B6.3.2 (1) seeks to enable Mana Whenua to identify their values associated with natural resources, heritage and ancestral lands. There are two identified significant places of interest to Mana Whenua within the application footprint. Consultation has been ongoing as part of the overall CRL project. Policy B7.4.2 (1) seeks to ensure an integrated management approach is adopted in relation to the effects associated with water quality. Specifically, policy B7.4.2 (7) and B7.4.2 (8) seek to manage and minimise the discharge of contaminants and sediment from development. Objective B7.5.1(3) seeks to ensure that adverse effects on human health, property and the environment from use and development that discharge contaminants into air are avoided, remedied or mitigated. The management measures proposed demonstrate consistency with the policy direction of Issue 6.

o

The proposal will be consistent with the policy approach for groundwater and settlement due to the performance standards for trench depth and building offsets. Chapter E2 of the AUP:OP outlines the objectives and policies in relation to water quantity, allocation and use and Policies E2.3 (6), (7) and (23) seek that taking is within the water availabilities and levels for the aquifer, the taking will not cause adverse interference effects on neighbouring bores, the proposal avoids, remedies or mitigates any ground settlement on buildings, structures and services, and the consideration of mitigation options. This also demonstrates consistency with Chapter d13 (Historic Heritage overlay), particularly Policies D17.3 (24), (25) and (26) are relevant, as it seeks to

LUC60118706 (WAT60149091, DIS60084185, DIS60084199, DIS60084208)

Page 4


enable upgrading of network utilities while ensuring it is done in a manner that avoids, remedies or mitigates new adverse effects on the heritage values. o

Proposed earthworks will be consistent with the regional land disturbance objectives and policies are found in E11.2 and E11.3 of the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part), specifically, Objectives 1-3 and Policies 1, 2, and 4-8 and the related assessment criteria at E11.8.2(1) as the works will be undertaken in a manner that protects people and the environment, does not exacerbate natural hazards and minimises sediment generation.

o

The proposed management of dust through the AQMP will enable the project to be managed in a way that is consistent with the objectives and policies of Chapter E14 in relation to air quality. Objective E14.2 (3) aims to ensure human health, property and the environment are protected from significant adverse effects from the discharge of contaminants to air. Policy E14.3 (9) seeks to avoid, remedy or mitigate adverse effects on air quality by adopting a precautionary approach, using best management practices and best practicable option. Policy E14.3 (10) seeks to avoid significant adverse effects from air discharges beyond the boundary of the premises where the discharge of contaminants is occurring.

o

The avoidance of tree removal and the proposed conditions to manage tree health during works where trimming and works in the rootzone can’t be avoided in accordance with best practice methodologies enables the proposal to be consistent with the objectives and policies of Chapter E17 (Trees in Roads) and Chapter D13 (Notable Trees) and Chapter E26 (Infrastructure).

o

The management of construction noise and vibration through the CNVMP to comply with the permitted activity noise standards and provide mitigation and measures to address vibration amenity during night works demonstrates consistency with the objectives and policies of Chapter E25. Objective E25.2 (4) seeks that construction activities that cannot meet noise and vibration standards are enabled while controlling duration, frequency and timing to manage adverse effects. Policy E25.3 (2) seeks to minimise, where practicable, noise and vibration at its source or on the site from which it is generated to mitigate adverse effects on adjacent sites.

o

The proposal provides for the regionally significant infrastructure asset of the CRL to develop, whilst the network utilities will be realigned to continue to provide secure and sufficient infrastructure for community wellbeing. This demonstrates consistency with the provisions of Chapter 26 in relation to infrastructure. E26.2.1 (1) seeks that the benefits of infrastructure are recognised while E26.2.1 (3) and E26.2.1 (4) seek that safe, efficient and secure infrastructure is enabled, to service the needs of existing and authorised development. in alignment with Policy E26.2.2(1).

o

Discharge of contaminants into air, water or land will be consistent with the objective and supporting policies at E30.2 and E30.3 as the effects on the receiving environment will be appropriately managed/mitigated through implementation of the CLMP and the sensitivity of the receiving environment to the adverse effects of the discharge will not be compromised given the level of the discharge, the application of suitable control technology and appropriate on site management techniques.

LUC60118706 (WAT60149091, DIS60084185, DIS60084199, DIS60084208)

o

Earthwork and construction activities will be managed so that there is no exacerbation of flooding hazards. Overland flow paths and flood plains during construction will be managed as part of the ESCP to enable consistency with the Flooding provisions of Chapter E36.

o

The proposal is considered to be consistent with the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Act (HGMPA) 2000. The ultimate receiving environment of the proposed activity is the Hauraki Gulf, and the Act seeks to recognise the national significance and lifesupporting capacity of the Hauraki Gulf along with enhancing its natural, historic and physical resources where appropriate. The relevant proposed controls and mitigation for water discharges will assist to protect the life-supporting capacity of the Gulf.

4.

In accordance with an assessment under s104(1)(c) of the RMA no other matters are considered relevant. A consent period of 5 years is considered appropriate for the consents, to enable reasonable contingency to undertake the works.

5.

This proposal achieves the sustainable management purpose of the RMA under Part 2 because the proposal adequately and appropriately provides for the management of adverse effects, with specific conditions and management plans to achieve this outcome.

6.

Overall, taking into account the application material, Council specialist reviews, the consideration of environmental effects in relation to noise and vibration, traffic, trees, built heritage, archaeology, stormwater, earthworks, flooding, dust nuisance and risks to human health and contamination, the proposal is consistent with the relevant objectives and policies and the relevant assessment criteria of the AUP:OP and the NES.

2. Conditions Under section 108 of the RMA, these consents are subject to the following conditions:

General conditions These conditions apply to all resource consents. Activity in accordance 1.

The activity shall be carried out in general accordance with the plans and all information submitted with the application, detailed below, and all referenced by the council as consent numbers LUC60118706, WAT60149091, DIS60084185, DIS60084199 and DIS60084208

No construction activity shall commence until certification from Council is provided.

95.

The ESCP shall include, but not be limited to, the following matters: a. identification of construction zones and construction support areas; b. specific erosion and sediment control works for each construction zone (location, dimensions, capacity supporting calculations and design drawings), which should be in line with Industry Best Practice that will meet or exceed the performance of measures detailed in Auckland Council Technical Publication No. 90, Erosion & Sediment Control: Guidelines for Land Disturbing Activities in the Auckland Region (TP90); c. catchment boundaries; d. the timing and duration of construction and operation of control works (in relation to the staging and sequencing of earthworks); e. details relating to the management of exposed areas; f. if required, reference to the Chemical Treatment Management Plan and confirmation of erosion and sediment control measures necessary to give effect to that plan; g. reference to the Contaminated Soils Management Plan and confirmation of erosion and sediment control measures necessary to give effect to that plan; and h. monitoring and maintenance requirements, including information on complaint investigation and response procedures, training, and roles and responsibilities.

96.

The Consent Holder shall request the Council's (Team Leader Central Monitoring) determination as to whether the ESCP can be certified, in writing, within 10 working days of receipt of the ESCP.

97.

Any change to the ESCP shall be submitted to the Council (Team Leader Central Monitoring) for certification. No activity reliant upon a change to the ESCP can be undertaken until the change has been certified. The Consent Holder shall request the Council's (Team Leader Central Monitoring) determination as to whether the proposed change can be certified, in writing, within 10 working days of submission of the change.

98.

If chemical treatment is proposed in order to ensure compliance with the Water Quality Assessment prepared by Golder Associates (NZ) Limited, dated May 2017, , a chemical treatment management plan (CTMP) shall be submitted to Council at least 20 working days prior to the commencement of construction (Team Leader Central Monitoring) for certification. The CTMP shall confirm the measures that will be undertaken to ensure that construction of the Project or Project Stage will be generally consistent with the Water Quality Assessment prepared by Golder Associates (NZ) Limited, dated May 2017.

The Consent Holder shall request the Council's (Team Leader Central Monitoring) determination as to whether the CTMP can be certified, in writing, within 10 working days of receipt of the CTMP.

100. The CTMP shall include, but not be limited to, the following matters: a. Specific design details of the chemical treatment system based on a batch dosing methodology for the site's settlement tanks, including the potential for use of non - chemical flocculants (e.g. chitin based flocculants); b. Monitoring, maintenance (including post-storm) and contingency programme (including a record sheet); c. Details of optimum dosage (including assumptions); d. Results of initial chemical treatment trial; e. A spill contingency plan; and f. Details of the person or bodies that will hold responsibility for the long term operation and maintenance of the chemical treatment system and the organisational structure which will support this system. 101. Any change to the CTMP shall be submitted to the Council (Team Leader Central Monitoring) for certification. No activity reliant upon a change to the CTMP can be undertaken until the change has been certified. The Consent Holder shall request the Council's (Team Leader Central Monitoring) determination as to whether the proposed change can be certified, in writing, within 10 working days of submission of the change. 102. Prior to construction (bulk excavations) commencing, a certificate signed by a senior qualified person shall be submitted to the Council (Team Leader Central Monitoring) to certify that the erosion and sediment controls have been constructed in accordance with the certified ESCP(s) as required by condition 94 of this consent. 103. The Consent Holder shall ensure that there shall be no deposition of earth, mud, dirt or other debris on any road or footpath resulting from bulk earthworks on the subject site. In the event that such deposition does occur, it shall immediately be removed. In no instance shall roads or footpaths be washed down with water without appropriate erosion and sediment control measures in place to prevent contamination of the stormwater drainage system, watercourses or receiving waters. 104. The operational effectiveness and efficiency of all erosion and sediment control measures specifically required as a condition of resource consent, including the certified ESCP referred to in Condition 94, shall be maintained throughout the duration of earthworks, or until the Project site is permanently stabilised against erosion. 105. The site shall be progressively stabilised against erosion at all stages of earthworks activity, and shall be sequenced to minimise the discharge of contaminants to groundwater or surface water. 106. The Consent Holder shall ensure that the erosion and sediment control measures shall be constructed and maintained in accordance with Auckland Council's Technical Publication 90: Erosion and Sediment Control Guidelines for Soil Disturbing Activities in the Auckland Region, and any amendments to this document, except where a higher standard is detailed in the documents referred to in conditions above, in which case the higher standard shall apply.
