Appointment to the Gambling and TAB Venue Policy Hearing Committee

Department: Civic






1      At its meeting on 17 October 2017, the Planning and Environment Committee appointed Councillor David Benson-Pope (Chair), Councillor Marie Laufiso and Councillor Conrad Stedman to a hearing committee to consider submissions received on its draft Gambling and TAB Venue Policy, following public consultation. 

2      The hearing is scheduled for the morning of 20 February 2018 starting at 9.00 a.m. 

3      Due to another Council commitment, Councillor Benson-Pope is now unable to attend the hearing on 20 February.  The purpose of this paper is to recommend a replacement, and after discussions with the Mayor, Councillor Aaron Hawkins is proposed to replace Councillor Benson-Pope on the hearing committee and to chair the committee. 

4      Council is asked to consider this paper under urgency, given the late change in availability of Councillor Benson-Pope, and acknowledging that some submitters have booked flights to attend the hearing. 

5      As this is an administrative report only, the summary of considerations is not required.


That the Council:

a)     Appoints Councillor Aaron Hawkins as Chair of the TAB Venue Policy Hearing Committee, replacing Councillor David Benson-Pope.
