PROCEDURES
AS TO
STOPPING OF
ROADS
APPENDIX III
NB: The following procedures are embodied in the Tenth Schedule of
the Local Government Act 1974 and are statutory requirements that the
Council must follow in the prescribed order.
Receipt of application indicating area of road to be closed.
Applicant advised of Council’s policy, that is, meeting the costs on
a monthly basis as work is done. The amount paid is deducted from
the value of the land at the end of the process. Advise applicant
that adjoining property owners must give consent prior to Council
initiating procedures.
Discussions held with the Queenstown Lakes District Council, Aurora
Energy Limited, APL Property Limited, QLDC Engineering, Wakatipu
Trails Trust/Upper Clutha Tracks Trust (if applicable), Otago Fish and
Game and the New Zealand Walkways Commission to discover any
future problems/use with the road closure.
Application placed from Infrastructure Services Committee/Wanaka
Community Board to Full Council.
Committee/Board either supports or declines the request to initiate
road closure procedures.
Applicant is notied that procedures are under way (if approved
at [5]).
Survey undertaken and plans prepared.
Notice of Closure appears in the newspaper (opportunity for
objections).
A copy of the survey ofce plan is lodged in Council’s Ofces and
made available for public inspection.
Two copies of the notice are afxed on site announcing the stopping
until the period of objection closes.
Letters are sent to the adjoining property owners.
If after this period objections are received, the Council attempts to
resolve the objectors concerns. If this cannot be done, the objections
are sent with the original application to the Environment Court for
its decision.
If no objections are received then the Council places a notice in the
paper declaring that the road is stopped.
Council obtains a valuation of the property to offer to adjoining
owners. The Act states the Council must obtain a valuation from the
competent valuer and offer it at that price (no negotiation available).
If the owner agrees to purchase, settlement is reached. If the
applicant refuses to purchase the land (the applicant will still have to
meet the road legalisation costs to date) the Council has other means
of disposing of the land e.g. auction.
