Central Hawke’s Bay District Council (“the Council”) is seeking to appoint independent commissioners to create a combined panel of Elected Member and independent commissioners appointed to hear and decide/recommend on applications and plan changes/reviews under the Resource Management Act 1991 (‘RMA’), and other relevant statutes, on behalf of the Council as part of its Regulatory Hearings Panel.

As part of this expression of interest (EOI) process, we are seeking expressions from suitably experienced and qualified independent commissioners to hear and deliberate on submissions for the District Plan Review process and to be available to form a panel of commissioners for its Regulatory Hearings Panel that will support Council in a range of operational and strategic regulatory matters for up to five years.

What’s important to us
We want to hear from Independent Hearing Commissioners who can demonstrate their knowledge, skills and experience in one of more of the following areas:

• Planning, resource management and heritage protection;
• Plan changes and reviews
• Law, local government and local affairs;
• Matters relating to the Treaty of Waitangi and kaupapa Maori;
• Specific issues relating to rural and coastal communities
• Hearing Processes;
• Alternative Dispute Resolution;
• Knowledge of the consent authorities function under the Resource Management Act 1991.

While applicants must have the appropriate technical skills and experience, there is an expectation that Commissioners are able to display and deliver a high degree of empathy and professionalism in their undertakings and align with the values of Council.

It is a requirement that applicants must meet the accreditation requirements outlined in the Resource Management Act 1991 and accreditation must be current.

Why should you participate?
As an experienced Commissioner in this space, you’ll already know about the transformational opportunities that the review of the District plan will bring – and this in itself will motivate you to want to be involved. Beyond this, you’ll understand the opportunity that ongoing involvement in our District through operational hearings as part of our regulatory hearings panel will bring to both Council and yourself as a Commissioner.

With a stable, highly capable and ambitious team of Elected Members, Executive Management, Staff and Strategic Suppliers and Partners, we are a partner that you will want to be associated with for the long-term.
