The Linwood-Central- Heathcote Community Board member is facing a code of conduct complaint alongside Coastal Ward councillor David East, Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim Money and deputy chairman Tim Sintes. The group said omission of a discretionary rule in the city council’s High Flood Hazard Management Area policy was against the intentions of the replacement District Plan independent hearing’s panel. Without the discretionary rule, also known as the enabling clause, Redcliffs and Southshore residents are finding it almost impossible to build or extend properties on 1486 sites within a residential unit overlay of the HFHMA. Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community board members who responded to questions from the Bay Harbour News said they agreed with Dr Latham that issues with the HFHMA policy needed to be resolved by the city council. However, none of them supported his call for an independent inquiry into the alleged District Plan tampering or his participation in a media conference last week.
