Water supply is temporarily offline in One Tree Point. Our team is aware of the fault and currently doing the repair - estimated to be finished by 2:00pm (Friday 21 January 2022). When water comes back, you may need to "flush" your pipes for a minute or so to let air or sediment out of the system. Just run the tap and it should come back to normal.
One of our responsibilities is to make sure our built and natural environments are protected or enhanced by the work people are doing.
We will investigate cases where this work breaches the Resource Management Act and District Plan.
Examples of breaches include:
Note that commercial activities, structure setback, signage and many other provisions in the District Plan differ, depending on the zone of the land. Something which is not compliant in one zone, may possibly be compliant in another and vice-versa.
We screen complaints to see whether planning rules have been breached. In some cases, when the planning non-compliance is small in scale, we may not pursue formal enforcement action.
We assign one of three levels of priority to cases depending on potential harm to the natural environment and the impact on surrounding properties.
Depending on the priority level we will carry out a site inspection within the following timeframes:
If no breach is detected during the site visit, the case will be closed immediately.
If a breach is detected the owner or relevant party will be advised of the action to take and be given a deadline to complete this.
In some cases taking formal enforcement action may be needed.
If taking further enforcement action is considered necessary, there are a number of enforcement options that Council may undertake to achieve compliance:
