Details of Fund transfer re Rawhiti Domain Power Station

Brian Sandle made this Official Information request to Christchurch City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Brian Sandle to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Brian Sandle

Dear Christchurch City Council,
What use was made of funds, if any, transferred when a block of probable Monarch-butterly-wintering eucalyptus trees was removed from Rawhiti Domain and replaced by a power station? How much was the amount? To what were the funds applied? Was it as required by the Rawhiti Domain Act: which says: "3Application of revenues from leases under this Act
All revenues received from any land leased under the powers conferred by this Act shall, after deduction of all expenses incurred in connection with the granting of such leases, be paid to the Rawhiti Domain Board to be expended for such purposes for the improvement or extension of the domain as the Minister of Lands approves." or only for general ongoing maintenance/tree cutting?

Yours faithfully,
Brian Sandle

Good afternoon Mr Sandle,

 

I hope that you are well during the lockdown.

 

I am writing in regards to your email below.

 

Staff have provided the following information:

 

The Rawhiti Domain Act 1925 was a three-clause Act to provide additional
powers re leasing/revenues to the Domain Board supplementary to the Public
Reserves and Domains Act 1908.

 

Staff are of the view that these would have all been superseded by
subsequent Acts, for example the Reserves and Domains Act 1953,
culminating in the current Reserves Act 1977.

 

Rawhiti Domain is held and managed under the Reserves Act 1977. There are
no Domain Boards now and no Minister of Lands.

 

Staff report that the substation was an emergency measure sought by Orion
and considered by the National Civil Defence Controller in 2011.
Subsequently the Council undertook a change of classification of part of
Rawhiti Domain to Local Purpose (Utility) Reserve under the Reserves Act
1977 to facilitate easements for this and water utilities.

 

Mr Sandle, I hope that this information is of assistance. If you require
further clarification please let me know.

 

You have the right to request the Ombudsman to review this decision.
Complaints can be sent by email to [1][email address], by fax
to (04) 471 2254, or by post to The Ombudsman, PO Box 10152, Wellington
6143.

 

Kind regards,
