Determining Alignment of MHWS - South Beach Access

Brian Warburton made this Official Information request to Porirua City Council

Currently waiting for a response from Porirua City Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Brian Warburton

Dear Porirua City Council,

In response to my previous request (30 Sept., 2021), Porirua City Council (letter from Wendy Walker, dated 14 October 2021) has advised that:
- MHWS was determined to be 0.7. above mean water level;
- the information was used in the consent application; and,
- the "Eduction method" was used to determine the alignment of MHWS.

Further to this, please provide me with all the information PCC has relied upon to provide me with this advice.

In response to my previous request (30 Sept., 2021), Porirua City Council (letter from Wendy Walker, dated 14 October 2021) has referred to email correspondence between PCC and Mr Iain Dawe ( GWRC officer). Mr Dawe has noted that the seawall: appears to extend further seaward than the previous fence and could be considered as a reclamation. He has also referred to associated disturbance.

To this extent, I suggest PCC has not satisfactorily replied to my request which was:
- in approving the works (either as a consenting authority or as a
'landowner' or as the proponent of the proposal) did PCC undertake, or
require to be undertaken, a site-specific survey to determine the location
of MHWS.
- if PCC undertook, or required to be undertaken, such a survey what was
the outcome of that.
- if PCC undertook, or required to be undertaken, such a survey what was
method used to determine the alignment of the MHWS.
- if no such survey was undertaken, was that a deliberate decision or was
it an oversight.
- if PCC didn't undertake, or required to be undertaken, an up-to-date
site-specific survey, and relied upon other information about the location
of the MHWS what was that other information it relied upon.
- if the omission of such a survey was a deliberate decision the
corresponding reasons.

Please reconsider PCC's previous response, and provide me with the information I actually requested.
