Tabled Document 2 - Public Forum - Rotoiti Rotoma Proposal Additional Data: Objective ID A4491679  


Presented by Te Kuramea Karere.

Key Points - Te Kuramea Karere:

·       Presented a proposed solution to reduce the water volume in Lake Rotoma and Lake Rotoehu to address the challenges posed by high water levels in the lakes (Reference Tabled Documents 1 and 2)

·       Aspiration was to be resilient/innovative and think “outside the box” in order to reduce water levels through the implementation of a mechanical evaporation system

·       Took six weeks off work to develop this concept/report

·       Highlighted the negative impacts of high lake levels on properties, infrastructure and the environment; emphasised the need for a solution to mitigate these impacts, even though there was currently a dry spell / summer season

·       Referenced various aspects of the project, including technical details, site considerations, environmental implications, logistical challenges, regulatory requirements and basic cost analysis

·       Highlighted the need for collaboration between stakeholders, including TALT, BOPRC and local iwi

·       Engagement was crucial for effective communication, regulatory compliance, and addressing cultural and environmental concerns

·       Focussed on the contents of Tabled document 2, which provided additional data and focused on the variations observed in Lake Rotoma's water levels during different documented El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) related weather patterns

·       Data supported the proposal and helped in understanding the relationship between ENSO weather patterns and Lake Rotoma's water levels.

Key Points – Members:

·       Acknowledged the hard work/dedication by Te Kuramea Karere in supporting the community with the innovative proposal and thinking big; encouraged him to consider further possibilities for future use

·       Recognised that further investigation into financial planning and regulatory compliance would be required.

Verbal Update: Freshwater Gold Clam Response Update

Presented by: Greg Corbett, BOPRC Biosecurity Manager and Cyrus Hingston Tarāwhai Iwi Trust Chairman, supported by William Anaru - TALT Biosecurity Manager and Te Wakaunua Te Kurapa – BOPRC Biosecurity Officer.

Key Points – BOPRC Staff:

·       Freshwater gold clams (Corbicula fluminea) had been detected in the Waikato River near Lake Karapiro in early May 2023

·       Gold clams had the potential to destroy native habitats and clog water supplies. They were self-fertile prolific breeders

·       Experience from overseas had shown the gold clam was highly invasive and difficult to control – it had never been eradicated from any site where it had established

·       Immediately following the detection of gold clam in the Waikato region, BOPRC and TALT staff surveyed potentially vulnerable areas of the Rotorua lakes with no detections to date

·       Gold clam mainly spread through vessel movements

·       Biosecurity New Zealand staff had been undertaking further ongoing surveillance

·       There was a high likelihood that freshwater gold clam (Corbicula fluminea) would be discovered in the Bay of Plenty region

·       BOPRC had directed its staff to continue surveillance for gold clam in the region and continue supporting the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI)/discuss potential ways to manage gold clam

·       Surveillance for gold clam had been incorporated into BOPRC’s biannual surveillance programme for the Lakes

·       BOPRC would continue with boat ramp compliance (Rule 7 of the Regional Pest Management Plan (RPMP)) to help reduce the risk of gold clam arriving in the region

Key Points – TALT Staff:

·       TALT had received notification of the freshwater gold clam (Corbicula fluminea) threat from the iwi collective and not MPI

·       Was extremely concerned about the threat; therefore deemed the matter as serious

·       Whānau had supported that more needed to be done in this space as MPI’s response might be insufficient

·       Had requested an Open Forum with MPI to discuss the latest biosecurity threat facing roto moana (Hui was scheduled for 27 September 2023).

Key Points – Cyrus Hingston, Ngāti Tarāwhai Iwi Trust Chairman:

·       Provided Tarāwhai Iwi’s perspective to the freshwater gold clam threat

·       Was gravely concerned about the threat and possible spread to Lake Ōkataina (Lake Ōkataina was of great cultural, spiritual and ecological importance to the people of Ngāti Tarāwhai)

·       Had been given the mandate by Ngāti Tarāwhai Iwi Trust beneficiaries to take all steps possible to prevent the spread

·       Had accordingly approached TALT, who held all the lake beds in trust

·       Within the next week the fishing season would open with numerous fishermen coming across from the Waikato region, increasing the risk of spread  

·       Had attended a recent hui with Biosecurity New Zealand who had indicated that they were monitoring/testing and informing the public accordingly; however, voluntary compliance was all they could do at this stage. Ngāti Tarāwhai Iwi Trust viewed this action would not stop the spread

·       Was looking at all options to protect the Lake and seeking a temporary closure of Lake Ōkataina to boat traffic while a long-term plan to manage the threat of the gold clams could be established. Enquired about a legal option to temporary close the Lake until proper measures were in place to stop the spread

·       Acknowledged that the closure would have a negative economic impact on the community. However, stressed that the impact on the wai would be of far bigger significance

·       Noted that several public lakes events had been planned for the 2023/24 summer period.

Key Points - Members:

·       TALT supported the temporary closure of Lake Ōkataina; acknowledged the potential negative economic impact

·       Under the Maritime Transport Act 1994, a harbourmaster could only close lakes for the purpose of ensuring maritime safety/navigational safety issues

·       Recognised that the Biosecurity Act 1993 provided MPI with the power to close a lake to place a controlled area notice as a temporary means to prevent the incursion of a pest to an area

·       Acknowledged the power of “community buy-in”

·       Members expressed general support to further investigate the temporary closure of Lake Ōkataina by MPI and furthermore encouraged MPI to support Ngāti Tarāwhai to protect the Lake; acknowledged that there had not been an opportunity to consult with the respective organisations that members represented

·       With the opening of the fishing season, recognised the urgency and the need to elevate the matter to a level of action

·       Members concurred that the Open Forum (to discuss the latest biosecurity threat facing rotomoana, hosted by TALT and MPI) scheduled for Wednesday, 27 September 2023 at 5:30 pm at the Millennium Hotel, 1270 Hinemaru Street, Rotorua would be an opportunity for the Strategy Group to voice their support for Ngāti Tarāwhai’s request for a temporary closure of Lake Ōkataina until such time that proper measures to prevent the spread of gold clam had been put in place.



That the Rotorua Te Arawa Lakes Strategy Group:

1          Receives the report, Verbal Update: Freshwater Gold Clams Response Update; and

2          Supports in principle (encourages), the urgent investigation into the temporary closure of Lake Ōkataina to boats by the Ministry for Primary Industries under the Biosecurity Act, based on the significant biosecurity threat posed by the Freshwater gold clams (Corbicula fluminea).

Verbal Update - Ministry for the Environment


Presented by: MfE Representative Lorena Stephen, Director, RM Implementation, Policy, Implementation and Delivery.

Key Points:

The Spatial Planning Act (SPA) and the Natural and Built Environment Act (NBA) began coming into effect on 24 August 2023

·       SPA and NBA to be gradually phased in over a 10-year period; MfE would work with representatives from local government, iwi, hapū, Māori organisations and the sector to consider what information, guidance and training would be required to support the dual system

·       Some changes in the new legislation started on 24 August 2023. Examples included:

o   fast-track consenting for certain housing and infrastructure developments

o   a new maximum duration for new freshwater-related consents

o   changes to council enforcement powers and penalties

o   changes to the management of contaminated land

o   changes to aquaculture management

o   changes to who can apply to be a requiring authority

·       Over the coming months more detail would be made available as MfE worked with advisory groups, partners and the sector to inform guidance, information and support that was required for implementation.

·       New laws enacted for resource management reform | Ministry for the Environment

Natural Hazards

·       MfE had released a discussion document on the Proposed National Policy Statement - Natural Hazard Decision-making (NPS-NHD) on 18 September, and were currently seeking feedback

·       Aimed to support local government decision making on new development in areas that were at high risk from natural hazards, to manage risks to people and property from natural hazards such as floods, landslides and coastal inundation

·       NPS-NHD would ensure that local government considered the risk of all natural hazards (including the effects of climate change) when making decisions relating to all new developments

·       This would be developed over the next one to two years.  Consultation period to close 13 November 2023

·       Have your say on managing natural hazard risk | Ministry for the Environment

National Planning Framework

·       MfE was developing a transitional National Planning Framework (NPF), which would provide direction and guidance for both regional spatial strategies and natural and built environment plans on the things that matter at the national and regional level

·       The NPF would bring together 23 pieces of existing national direction – such as the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management and the National Policy Statement for Urban Development – into one cohesive document.  The transitional NPF would also include new national direction on infrastructure, environmental limits and targets, and implement outcomes including the relationship of iwi and hapū with their taonga

·       MfE had conducted engagement on the transitional NPF up to the end of June 2023 and would conduct further targeted engagement on the Statutory Engagement Draft through the remainder of 2023

·       Targeted engagement would focus on engaging Māori groups to ensure they had an early opportunity to give feedback on the proposed NPF, and in particular Post Settlement Government Entities (PSGEs) in accordance with existing Treaty settlement commitments. There would also be targeted engagement with local government as key implementers of the NPF

·       Notification of the transitional NPF proposal was likely to occur in early 2024. Once the transitional NPF was notified, an independent board of inquiry process would begin. During the board of inquiry process, iwi/hapū/PSGEs would be encouraged to provide feedback via submissions and/or hearing

·       The Minister would make final decisions on the NPF proposal, having regard to the board of inquiry report

·       The final version of the transitional NPF was anticipated to come into effect in mid-2025.

National Policy Statement for highly productive land

·       The Government wanted feedback on potential amendments to the National Policy Statement for Highly Productive Land (NPS-HPL)

·       Since the NPS-HPL took effect in 2022, concerns had been raised about how it may restrict the development of activities not relying on highly productive land (HPL) but needing to be located on it for particular reasons. The activities included:

o   renewable electricity generation (particularly solar)

o   intensive indoor primary production (e.g. indoor pig, poultry and mushroom farms), and

o   greenhouses

·       Feedback was required from those interested in renewable electricity generation, indoor primary production and greenhouses. Consultation was open until 31 October.  More information available: Potential amendments to the National Policy Statement for Highly Productive Land | Ministry for the Environment.
