Report submitted to Avondale Community Board,Tuesday 27 April 2010
The following comes from the public agenda for the Avondale Community Board’s April meeting. Auckland City Council are still awaiting results on tests taken of the soil at one site at the rear of thebuilding, but have advice of costs for remedial work for other areas. An engineer’s report on the structural work required has been received, and plans are being made for the lead paint removal.The report refers to expected completion time of within the next six months. So far, this sounds like good news for St inians.

Subject: Update on the status of St inians Hall
St Ninians Hall, St Georges Bay Road, Avondale, was closed to the public in March 2007 after thesite was deemed contaminated. Council commissioned Tonkin & Taylor Ltd to undertake a buildingand ground contamination assessment. This report confirmed high levels of lead concentrationswithin both the interior and exterior paintwork, significantly exceeding recommended levels. The soilalso tested positive for concentrations of lead and benzo(a)pyrene, both considered a potential humanhealth risk.A qualitative human health risk assessment indentified the most sensitive receptors at risk from longterm exposure to these potential contaminants are children. Adults are considered lower risk as theyare likely to have a less intimate exposure to both the lead and soil. The assessment concluded thatthe levels of lead in the paint and dust samples represent significant human health risk, particularly tochildren using the hall.This report recommended a Tier 2 Human Health risk assessment be undertaken, identifying possibleuser groups. This would enable a more site specific clean up according to the intended use. The
