5.       As part of Council’s wider graduate and cadet employment programmes, recruitment of five graduates and three cadets for the Department is underway.

6.       The Pools and Leisure team is currently developing a new set of Corporate Wellness packages in partnership with CLM and YMCA. The program will offer organisations a combination of products, services and membership options tailored to meet the needs of their employees. The initiative is part of building the Business of Leisure.

7.       The Manurewa Pool and Leisure Centre and the Howick Leisure Centre are piloting the use of the Lean Kaizen continuous improvement methodology and experiencing positive results in increased efficiencies and improved staff engagement.   Staff from both centres travelled to Rotorua where the Council has successfully adopted the lean methodology.  Leisure is now looking to roll out this approach across all centres as part of building the Business of Leisure.

8.       Henderson Massey Local Board Snow Day at Royal Reserve was a great success, with a large number of people attending the event.  Even the heavy rain did not deter people and the queue to use the snow slope was well over a 150m long.


9.       Parks Sport and Recreation held initial meetings with local boards regarding an exciting sponsorship proposal that will see investment in basketball in three to four local board areas and five parks.  The sponsor is strongly committed to the project and is expecting to see their plans realised in early 2015.  There was strong support in principle received for the proposal, with confirmation of the scope / location etc expected in October. This project is part of a program to attract alternative funding for parks and recreation assets.

10.     On 4 October Takahē will be released in the Open Sanctuary within the Tawharanui Regional Park. Volunteers and staff have been working on creating the conditions for this for many years. It is the first time such a rare bird has been released in a mainland open sanctuary within a major urban area.

11.     More than 20 scientists from around the country attended a workshop held on 12 September at the Botanic Gardens to establish collaborative research projects. This is expected to include means to create and manage sustainable / minimal maintenance of wild flower plots suitable for locations such as parks, road sides and cemeteries.

12.     Auckland hosted parks professionals from across the North Island at a joint New Zealand Recreation Association and Australasian Parks Forum workshop. 

13.     ‘Be aware month’ at the Arataki Visitor Centre.  There has been good attendance and lots of interest which has brought visitors from other parts of Auckland who have never visited the centre.

14.     Event 3 of the Junior Schools Sustainability Challenge was held on 9 September at Arataki. Arranged through the education team, it was fully subscribed and well supported by council staff from regional parks, bio-security and the Auckland Zoo.

15.     Following consideration of submissions, independent commissioners acting under the Reserves Act have recommended to the Otara – Papatoetoe Local Board that it grants leases and licenses to occupy land in order to provide for motorsport within Colin Dale Park.

 

Issues / Challenges

16.     Waitawa Regional Park closure.  This is due to major slips following a weather bomb that hit the park and surrounding farms.  A tender has been let and a contractor appointed; awaiting resource consent to begin.  Works will be undertaken over December.  Park officers are working toward a partial opening to allow visitors to walk to the main beach.

17.     Staff are actively engaged with local boards, supporting their comments and submissions with respect to the Mayoral Proposal for the Long-term Plan.

 

Health & Safety

18.     On 15 October a protected tree fell at Myers Parks; there was no injury.  An assessment of cause is being undertaken.

19.     Surf Lifesaving New Zealand undertook a coastal hazard assessment of the recently acquired Byers property to help regional parks identify and manage safety risks at the property.

 

Projects

20.     Auckland’s First World War Heritage Trail was opened. The trail introduces a range of innovations, including integration with social media and a phone application.

 


21.     Playtime Park in Glen Innes has opened. The design for the Park was led by Auckland Council in cooperation with the developer of Stonefields and landscape architects from Natural Habitats. Consultation undertaken with children from Stonefields Primary School helped to inform the basis of the design of the park.   This project referenced the industrial quarrying history of the site through the use of industrial materials, diggers and rock in various forms such as walls, edging and paving.

Granting of a Licence Agreement to the Friends of Couldrey House Inc.

 

File No.: CP2014/22194

 

Purpose

1.       To seek approval for a new licence to be granted to the incumbent licensee – Friends of Couldrey House – for the continued management and operation of the historic Couldrey House located at Wenderholm Regional Park.

Executive summary

2.       Couldrey House is a heritage property located within Wenderholm Regional Park.  The house was bought by the Auckland Regional Authority in 1973 after Tim Couldrey offered to abdicate rights to continued ownership provided the Auckland Regional Authority made certain rooms available for the exhibition of old colonial furniture and other items the family had generously left.

3.       The Friends of Couldrey House have a held licence to manage and operate the house since the early 1990’s and the current licence since October 2000. They are now seeking a new five year licence to continue operating the house as a historic building open to the public.

4.       The Friends of Couldrey House are proven and able custodians and hosts to visitors to the property and have successfully secured extensions to the current licence in 2003, 2006 and 2011.

5.       Couldrey House is considered to have considerable historic significance and use of the house is limited by a number or constraints outlined in the Couldrey House Conservation Plan 2001.

6.       It is considered the current use and operation of the house is consistent with the requirements for the Couldrey House Conservation Plan 2001 and the Regional Parks Management Plan 2010 (RPMP).

7.       There is no requirement under the RPMP to publically notify a new licence or formally seek expressions of interest to manage and operate the facility.

 

Recommendation

That the Parks, Recreation and Sport Committee:

a)      approve the granting of a licence agreement to the Friends of Couldrey House Inc. to manage and operate Couldrey House for a term of five years on comparable terms and conditions as are contained in the recently expired licence between Auckland Regional Council and The Friends of Couldrey House Inc. (dated 30/09/2014).

b)      acknowledge and congratulate The Friends of Couldrey House for their continued stewardship and contribution to maintaining the region’s historic heritage.

 

Comments

Background

8.       Historic Couldrey House is located in Wenderholm Regional Park, and it is operated under licence by a registered Charitable Trust called The Friends of Couldrey House Inc. (The Friends).


9.       The licence has been held by The Friends since the 1990s and has been renewed regularly since then. Under the terms of the licence, The Friends operate the house as a historic building that is made open to the public by a team of volunteers who provide guided tours for a small fee for adults (children are free).  For approximately one third of the year the house is open daily on weekdays.  For the remainder of the year, weekends and school holidays the house is open from 1pm to 4pm or by arrangement for groups. The Friends also organise a number of events such as ‘Summer Magic – Music in the Garden’.  The funds raised are used to maintain the interior of the house and provide interpretative displays.

10.     The current licence granted by the Auckland Regional Council in October 2010 expired on 30 September 2014.  The Friends have formally requested a new licence for a term of five years with the same terms and conditions as the recently expired licence.  A five year term will allow more certainty when planning and implementing strategies for increasing numbers and future events.

11.     The house is maintained in excellent condition and provides a valuable and unique opportunity to Wenderholm Regional Park visitors. Recently The Friends funded the replacement of curtains and the repainting of the stairway, hallway and ceilings in two large rooms.  In addition to this, council has repainted the exterior of the house and has operating budget to replace rot in the stairs leading up to the front porch in this financial year. No other significant works are planned in the near future.

Assessment of request

12.     The Couldrey House Conservation Plan 2001’s (the conservation plan) Statement of Significance identifies that Couldrey House has cultural, historic, aesthetic and scientific significance and is considered overall to have considerable significance.

13.     There are a number of constraints on the use and modification of the house that arise from the conservation plan.  It states that no work should be undertaken that:

·   Removes or conceals evidence of the way the building may have been formally used.

·   Reduces the buildings architectural value of aesthetic integrity.

·   Conceals or reduce evidence of technological evidence such as construction techniques.

·   Alters or removes original fabric other than where necessary to ensure continued viability or where deterioration has occurred.

·   Involving earthworks, terrain disturbance or planting without prior archaeological assessment and compliance with legislation.

14.     Any use of the house and gardens must also be consistent with the RPMP which contains the following policies:

·   Continue to implement the recommendations of the Couldrey House Conservation Plan (2001), including maintaining and enhancing the historic gardens and trees associated with Couldrey house, while retaining its use as a park office and reviewing its potential for other community activities.

·   Continue to interpret the European history at Couldrey House and the Maori History and conservation programmes on the walking tracks.

15.     It is considered that the current management of the house is consistent with the protection and enhancement of the heritage values envisaged in the conservation plan and RPMP.

16.     Policy 13.5.1.15 of the RPMP sets out other matters that should be given particular regard when considering renewing existing licences on regional parks. It is considered that The Friends have complied with previous terms and conditions adequately and have successfully promoted appropriate behaviour within the historic precinct.  Council staff confirm The Friends have continued to be a suitable custodian and host at the property since the first licence to operate was obtained in the early 1990’s.   They have met all of the terms and conditions of their current licence; including the requirement to provide the council with the audited annual accounts (refer attachment).

17.     Council staff have not received any other interest regarding occupation and management of Couldrey House.  Given the suitability of the current licensee and previous lack of interest from other parties it would appear little would be achieved through a formal expression of interest process.

Licence arrangements

18.     It is proposed the terms and conditions in the recently expired licence be included in a new licence.  In summary the main conditions are:

·   The house is to be used only for purposes in keeping with its status as a historic building and from time to time with approval hold wedding ceremonies and other functions organised by the trust for charitable purposes to promote Couldrey House.

·   Continued authorisation to sell food and drink and/or carry on any catering at the house of grounds immediately surrounding the house for fundraising for the direct benefit of the house or other charitable events.

·   The continued functioning of a Couldrey House Management Committee that convenes at least twice a year.

·   The requirements to submit a written report outlining the trusts activities at the house during the preceding financial year.

·   The requirement to undertake maintenance of all parts of the interior of the house under its control including redecoration, cosmetic repair work, cleaning, rubbish and replacement of internal fittings e.g. lights, blinds and carpet.

·   Payment of all power and phone charges in respect of its operation by The Friends.

·   The Friends to remain a Charitable Trust and to do all things necessary to maintain charitable status.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

19.     The Local Board Delegation Protocols (22 January 2013) sets out that the local board will be consulted on occupancy agreements within parks where decision-making is allocated to the Governing Body that require public notification.  While this licence request does not need to be publicly notified, the Rodney Local Board’s views were sought.   Brenda Steele, the Rodney Local Board Chairperson, provided the following response on 9 September 2014, “Thank you for your keeping the Rodney Local Board informed and we would like to recognise the strong support from wonderful volunteer organisations which provide vital services in Rodney.

Māori impact statement

20.     Couldrey House is located on a site identified by The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan as a site or place of significance to mana whenua. Further to this Policy 17.21.1.26(b) of the RPMP requires recognition of tangata whenua of Wenderholm Regional Park through consulting on the planning, protection, development and management of the park and the tangata whenua values they contain.

21.     All mana whenua identified as having an interest in the Rodney Local Board area were notified in writing about The Friends’ request for a new licence and feedback was sought.

22.     Responses were received from Ngāti Whatua o Kaipara, Ngāti Maru and Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whatua.  All three iwi indicated support for the request.  Te Uri o Hau advised that this application for a licence is outside their estates and territory: statutory area of interest.

Implementation

23.     The application for a new licence is consistent with the policies and objectives outlined in the discretionary activities section of the RPMP and does not trigger the requirement for public notification.

24.     If approved, council’s legal team will draft up the licence agreement for The Friends of Couldrey House Inc. to sign.
