This layer is a subset of the Huntly flood risk area layer but has site specific issues relating to the susceptibility to flooding and ponding.
Data acquisition information maybe captured in the Huntly Flood Management Plan file 65 11 02. The Huntly South Ponding Area progress report and associated information is held in subject file 65 11 02 ‘Huntly Flood Management Plan’. This file contains flood information across all of Huntly. Huntly South Ponding Areas and Huntly South Industrial Subdivision Ponding Levels Reports contained in Policy Committee Agenda dated 13 Oct 1997 (held in reference library in Records). Technical report prepared by Environmental Engineer assessing the hydrological impact of section filling in Huntly South Industrial Subdivision also held in records reference library.
Huntly South Assessment Area 1 covers a specified area in Huntly South between the state highway and the river where the ponding capacity of land has been seriously reduced by past filling. Tighter controls on further filling are necessary to maintain the remaining holding capacity. The layer is intending to safeguard flooding capacity during high rainfall. The area identifies land that has been filled to raise property above flood levels which has in turn created a greater risk to neighbouring properties, i.e. the non-filled sites will be affected by displaced flood water. Rules relate to building and earthworks. Relates to the implementation of the District Plan under the Resource Management Act (1991), and may be subject to various limitations and conditions. These features are a spatial representation of the policies and objectives of the Waikato District Plan and indicate where policies, overlays and District Plan rules apply.
