Updated post
Mon, 15 Feb 2016 at 5:36 p.m. Last updated 10:59 p.m.

Two updates were issued today by DCC on the 2GP further submission process.

In the first, DCC said it had withdrawn the 2GP Summary of Decisions, and the closing date for further submissions would be put back and publicly notified.

The second update made no reference to the closing date or public notification:

DCC says: Error in Summary of Decisions Requested reports
12/02/2016
The Summary of Decisions Requested reports have been temporarily withdrawn from the website due to a technical error in exporting data. In the interim please use the search function on the Search the Submissions page to view the correct Summary of Decisions Requested. Updated Summary of Decisions Requested reports will be distributed online and to libraries as soon as practically possible.

Awaiting clarification and advice from DCC.

2GP logo 2Have your say
IGNORE THIS DATE – The Further submission period is open from Wednesday, 10 February to Friday, 26 February.

What can a further submission cover?
A further submission can only be made in support or opposition to a point raised in an original submission on the 2GP.

Who can make a further submission?
The RMA limits who can make further submissions to:
● any person representing a relevant aspect of the public interest
● any person that has an interest in the proposed plan greater than the interest that the general public has
● the local authority (the Dunedin City Council).

It provides an opportunity for people who may be affected by an original submission to have their views considered. You do not have to have made an original submission to participate. If you have made an original submission you do not need to repeat submission points made in that submission as they will already be considered.

Summary of decisions requested
The Summaries of Decisions Requested are a concise summary of the decisions requested in the submissions on the 2GP which closed on 24 November 2015. It is not the full or exact content of submissions. It is prepared to enable the further submission process which is set out in Schedule 1 of the RMA.

█ The Summary of Decisions Requested and copies of all submissions will be available from midday Tuesday, 9 February.

Hard copies of the Summary of Decisions Requested reports will also be available for inspection at:
● 2GP drop-in centre, 11 George Street, Dunedin, 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday
● public libraries and/or service centres at Dunedin, Middlemarch, Mosgiel, Port Chalmers, Blueskin Bay (Waitati) and Waikouaiti.

Submissions Map
The submissions map indicates the spatial location of submissions seeking a change to the proposed zoning (management zones only not overlay zones), new heritage precincts, or changes to scheduled items. It reflects the information in the submission point address field of the Summary of Decisions Requested reports. Through pop-ups, the map provides links to relevant submissions.

DISCLAIMER: This map has been prepared as an aid for people wanting to understand the scope of submissions related to an area. The accuracy and completeness of this information is not guaranteed and people should read original submissions. In some cases, the information contained in submissions was not detailed enough to accurately map the scope of the submission. In these cases, the mapping has been either omitted or approximated where possible.

How do I make a further submission?

Online submissions
The RMA requires further submissions to be in a prescribed form (Form 6). An easy way to make a submission is using the 2GP on-line submission system, which ensures submissions are in the prescribed form and allows you to link to specific submission points

Other ways to make a submission
Hard copies of the submission form and submission guidelines can be downloaded below or paper copies can be picked up at the 2GP drop-in centre or from the DCC Customer Services Agency located on the ground floor of the Civic Centre at 50 The Octagon, Dunedin.

For written submissions
Post to: Further submission on Proposed Second Generation Dunedin City District Plan, Dunedin City Council, PO Box 5045, Dunedin 9058

Deliver to: Customer Services Agency, Dunedin City Council, Ground Floor, 50 The Octagon, Dunedin

Email to: districtplan @ dcc.govt.nz

Serving a copy of further submissions on submitters
IMPORTANT: Any person making a further submission must serve a copy of that further submission on the person who made the original submission no later than five working days after lodging the further submission with the DCC. A copy of the addresses for service for all submitters is provided in the Submitter Details Report.

  1. JimmyJones

    Because of some wrong information given by Cr Kate Wilson at a Council Forum in November, I want to emphasize that anyone can put in a Further Submission to the 2GP – even if you missed out on putting in a first submission. There are some rules. To follow the rules you need to look through the first submissions to find one that deals with the issue that you want to submit on. You need to state your support or opposition for some aspect of this submission. You also should state that you have “an interest in the proposed plan greater than the interest that the general public has” – don’t bother trying to justify this statement. It is bound to be true, because you are writing a submission, or for a variety of other reasons. You won’t be asked.

    In this way you can support or oppose aspects of the 2GP and give your reasons. I don’t know if we are allowed to request new changes to the 2GP that are not covered by a first submitter – I hope someone more knowledgeable will know this. Also, by law, you need to send to each first submitter that you support/oppose a copy of your Further Submission. Because the 2GP is big and takes a while to read the period for submissions wasn’t long enough. Now we have another chance to tell the DCC where they have gone wrong.

    JimmyJones: Thanks for posting this. I wonder how further submitters get the address of the first submitter. If it’s publicly available, I wonder how that fits in with the relatively new idea of personal privacy. Might being forced to make your address public scare some people off? I know the info is in the Electoral Roll but some people mightn’t like their address publicly linked with the content of their submission. (Compare with scary personal visits to online commenters!) Also whether the DCC would act as a go-between or not. Because I think having to notify the original submitter might be onerous enough to put some people off doing a further submission at all.
    Sheer laziness is putting me off. Is there a summary of submissions available online? If there i,s that would make doing further submissions a lot easier for me. I think further submissions have to be done on the proper form too. I wonder that’s online. I suppose I had better go the DCC and ask a planner these questions.

    • Elizabeth

      Diane – the original submissions are reported (summarised) by DCC and everybody can/should read that report; then read those original submissions of interest for more detail. From the 1000 or more. Before making further submission. All of our submissions have our contact details on them.

      The DCC’s 2GP has ALL the relevant information you need – see post at top of thread as well as Jimmy’s comments – no-one should ever believe KW.

    • JimmyJones

      Diane: The Summary of Decisions Requested is what you need. It will be available tomorrow afternoon. It will have the address of each first submitter. Your submission with your address will be publicly available. I am reasonably sure that just an email address is enough.
      If you ask a DCC planner they will tell you what it says in the public notice, that only people that are particularly affected by a submission can do a further submission, but I am saying that anyone can as long as they refer to a particular first submission. Your submission needs to ask for specific changes to the 2GP. It should be worth reading the Summary because many of those first submitters will have read the 2GP more thoroughly than you and me and some will be experts in their field.

    DCC seeks further feedback on district plan
    Residents are getting one last chance to have their say on the city council’s proposed second generation plan. Staff have reopened a drop-in centre near the Octagon to help people figure out how the plan will affect them. And it’s hoped the secondary feedback will streamline the lengthy subsequent hearing process.

    WHAT A TOTAL MESS, DCC [ https://2gp.dunedin.govt.nz/2gp/index.html ]

    Earlier today you said that the closing date for further submissions would be put back [because of the internal stuff up], and the new closing date was going to be publicly notified.

    That has been taken down at the DCC website and replaced by the notice already cited here [see my last comment].

    IS THIS DCC TRYING TO AVOID PUBLIC NOTIFICATION, UNDER POLITICAL TIMELINE PRESSURE ???????????

    Dear All

    I received the below DCC email on 5 February, and was prepared to make a further submission before the closing date of 26 February 2016.

    Today, confusion at the DCC website with regards to further submissions – given two updates provided.

    The first said, in effect, that the closing date for further submissions would be put back [because of an internal stuff up] and the new closing date was going to be publicly notified. [I didn’t make a screenshot of the message]

    This was followed by another, replacing the first, which said:

    Error in Summary of Decisions Requested reports
    12/02/2016
    The Summary of Decisions Requested reports have been temporarily withdrawn from the website due to a technical error in exporting data. In the interim please use the search function on the Search the Submissions page to view the correct Summary of Decisions Requested. Updated Summary of Decisions Requested reports will be distributed online and to libraries as soon as practically possible.

    This last made no reference to public notification of an extended closing date for further submissions.

    Given the date of issue was 12/02/2016 this suggests that by now all submitters should have been emailed individually about something having gone wrong with the process and to await further information from DCC.

    I hope the technical error which affects all those making further submissions is properly recognised and a public notice will be issued that extends the closing date for submissions.

    Otherwise I imagine the Council will leave itself open to challenge.

    Please could someone clarify how the process is to presume, and accurately.

    Kind regards

    Dear Elizabeth Kerr
    Dear Submitter,
    Please see the public notice for the Summary of Decisions Requested for the Proposed Second Generation Dunedin City District Plan below.
    It would be appreciated if you contacted the 2GP Team at the times and through the options laid out in the public notice rather than by responding to this email.
    Yours Sincerely
