Update on the Puhinui Structure Plan

 

Resolution number AUC/2014/133

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson C Darby, seconded by Chairperson PA Hulse:  

That the Auckland Development Committee endorse the following principles/approach to advance planning for future development in the Puhinui Structure Plan area:

a)      parts of the Puhinui Structure Plan area may be urbanised, subject to development control conditions regarding the nature, scale and location of development to protect significant environmental, ecological, archaeological, landscape and cultural values being in place.

b)      future development of the Puhinui Structure Plan area is contingent upon resolution of significant issues around the availability, costs, funding, timing and staging of major capital investments, particularly in upgrades and new links to the strategic state highway and local transport network; and infrastructure funding agreements between asset providers and developers being in place.

c)      the matters of determination of location of the Rural Urban Boundary, appropriate zoning and development controls can be most efficiently addressed through the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan hearing process.

d)      Auckland Council will not promulgate a change to the operative Auckland Regional Policy Statement to move the Metropolitan Urban Limits to provide for urbanisation of the Puhinui Structure Plan area, but, subject to resolution of the issues identified in a) and b) above, will propose extending the Rural Urban Boundary to include parts of the Puhinui Structure Plan area as identified in Appendix D of the report through the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan hearing process.

e)      future development of the Puhinui Structure Plan area will need to be staged and Auckland Council, Auckland Transport, Watercare Services Ltd, Iwi, the Southern gateway Consortium, other landowners/developers will continue to work collaboratively to address and resolve outstanding matters relating to feasibility, timing, sequencing and funding of infrastructure services, with particular attention to finding solutions, including temporary works to enable staged land development.

f)       receive the tabled letter from Derek Nolan entitled ‘PAUP Hearing Topic 017 RPS – Changes to the RUB 2 (South), Pre-Hearing: 16 October 2014: 5-13 February 2015’ dated 14 October 2014.

Resolution number AUC/2014/136

MOVED by Chairperson PA Hulse, seconded by Cr AM Filipaina:  

That the Auckland Development Committee:

a)         note that Staff have investigated the potential use of Rennie Homestead as a visitor centre based on tourist activities, supporting infrastructure and financial assumptions that are consistent with those previously proposed on the Otuataua Stonefields site.

b)        note the investigations have indicated that the use of Rennie Homestead and surrounding site as an alternative visitor centre location require a substantial capital budget ($3.6m) and operational (a minimum of $971,000) funding subsidy from Council across a range of financial years.

c)         note budget requirements assume the Centre achieves 100,000 visitors and 45,000 paying visitors a year.

d)        note Rennie Homestead is not considered entirely suitable as a location to receive 100,000 visitors a year.

e)         note that whilst the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board and local iwi are supportive of the development of a visitor centre, further discussions would be required with one iwi group to agree that the Rennie Homestead is a suitable location

f)          note that the visitor centre project does not lie within any of the Councils emerging Spatial Priority areas.

g)        resolve that the Rennie Homestead proposal as the Māngere Gateway Programme visitor centre does not proceed on the basis of the points outlined above within the financial constraints of the proposed Long Term Plan (2015-2025)

h)        note that the committee was advised in public input by Karen Wilson that the Maori impact statement paragraph 36. ‘Te Akitai (of Pukaki Marae) at a hui on 14th August 2014 a)-k) is not an accurate statement of Te Akitai views

i)          recommend that officers from ATEED work with the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board and Te Ahiwaru and Te Akitai on other appropriate initiatives  for Māngere Gateway area, for inclusion into the 2015-25 LTP discussions.
