Mt Roskill Village Centre Upgrade

 

File No.: CP2014/29716

 

  

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to update the Puketapapa Local Board on the proposed strategy for implementation of the Mt Roskill village centre upgrade.

Executive Summary

2.       Carrying out an upgrade of the Mt Roskill village centre, in line with the Dominion Road corridor upgrade, is a key initiative in the Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2014.

3.       There is currently $500,000 allocated to an upgrade of the Mt Roskill village centre in financial year 2017/18 of the Draft Long Term Plan 2015-2025.

4.       It was originally intended to deliver the project in 2013/14 in tandem with the Dominion Road corridor upgrade, which was to commence in 2014/15. A design exercise (Attachment A) was carried out in 2013 to investigate projects that could be delivered in the village centre.

5.       As part of the 2015-2025 Long Term Plan process, both the Mt Roskill village centre and Dominion Road corridor funding has been reallocated to later financial years.

6.       Implementation of the Mt Roskill village centre upgrade is subject to approval of the draft Long Term Plan in June 2015. Council staff advice is that to maximise the value of investment and avoid disruption to the community, delivery of the village centre upgrade be done subject to the Dominion Road corridor also being approved as part of the draft Regional Land Transport Plan 2015-2025.

7.       If the budget for the Dominion Road corridor project is not secured, other projects identified through the design exercise carried out in 2013 can form the basis for further design work.

8.       It is noted that should the project budget remain in financial year 2017/18 of the Long Term Plan, Council staff will not proceed with any further work on the project until July 2017.

9.       Council staff will provide an update to the Puketapapa Local Board following approval of the Draft Long Term Plan and Draft Regional Land Transport Plan. This update will enable the Local Board to communicate the outcome to stakeholders.

10.     The Local Board also carried out public consultation on project options for Mt Roskill in June 2014. The top four priorities to emerge from the public consultation were:

·     improvements to shop fronts

·     art work

·     planting

·     improvements to the pedestrian connection from Dominion Road to the public car park to the western side of Roskill Village.

11.     Whilst the majority of these projects could be delivered with the available budget, it would not be appropriate to spend public funds on improvements to shop fronts which are privately owned.


 

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      note that the $500,000 budget for the Mt Roskill village centre upgrade has been reallocated to financial year 2017/18 in the Draft Long Term Plan 2015-2025.

b)      endorse the strategy to implement the Mt Roskill village centre upgrade subject to the Dominion Road corridor upgrade also being approved as part of the draft Regional Land Transport Plan 2015-2025.

c)      note that Council staff will provide an update to the Puketapapa Local Board following approval of the Draft Long Term Plan and Draft Regional Land Transport Plan.

d)      note that should the project budget remain in financial year 2017/18 in the Long Term Plan, Council staff will recommence work on the Roskill Village Upgrade project in July 2017.

e)      note that whilst the majority of project options identified through public consultation carried out by Puketapapa Local Board in June 2014 could be delivered with the budget, it would not be appropriate to spend public funds on improvements to shop fronts which are privately owned.

Discussion

Background

12.     The Auckland Plan identifies Mt Roskill as a local centre that will experience moderate change over the next 30 years. Carrying out an upgrade of the Roskill Village, in line with the Dominion Road corridor upgrade, is a key initiative in the Puketāpapa Local Board Plan 2014.

13.     There is currently $500,000 allocated to an upgrade of the Roskill Village in financial year 2017/18 of the Draft Long Term Plan 2015-2025.

14.     It was originally intended to deliver the project in 2013/14 in tandem with the Dominion Road corridor upgrade, which was to commence in 2014/15.

15.     However, the budget has been moved to financial year 2017/18 in the Draft Long Term Plan 2015-2025. The funding for the Dominion Road corridor upgrade has also been reallocated to financial years 2016/17 and 2017/18 in the Draft Long Term Plan while Auckland Transport assess options.

Review of project options

16.     During financial year 2013/14, Council staff reviewed the following:

·     A scoping exercise conducted by Council staff in 2009 that identified high priority areas for improvements in Roskill Village. The exercise focused on pedestrian safety, personal safety and visual amenity.

·     A design exercise conducted by Jasmax in 2010 that identified a long list of projects that could be delivered in Roskill Village. The projects were grouped into four phases and a “future/aspirational” category.

·     The Auckland Transport Dominion Road corridor upgrade that proposed a new streetscape for Roskill Village (Attachment B), including new footpaths, bus stops, pedestrian crossing points, street furniture and trees.


 

17.     The review noted that a number of projects had already been delivered in Roskill Village (e.g. mural artworks funded by Small Local Improvement Projects) or were to be delivered by the Auckland Transport Dominion Road corridor upgrade. See the table in Attachment A, which identifies these projects.

18.     Based on the findings of this review, City Transformation commissioned a design exercise in 2013 to determine what could be delivered in Roskill Village with the $500,000 budget. This is shown on a plan within Attachment A. Potential projects included:

·     Upgrading the pedestrian entrance to Dominion Road primary school to provide greater amenity, new seating, cycle parking and planting.

·     Enhancements to the public car park to the west of Roskill Village, including upgrading the vehicle entrances, improving pedestrian circulation and safety.

19.     The results of this review were presented to the Puketapapa Local Board at a number of workshops through 2013 and 2014.

20.     Council staff also took Local Board members on a site visit to the Manurewa town centre to give an example of upgrades delivered with a similar budget.

Proposed implementation strategy

21.     Implementation of the Mt Roskill village centre upgrade is subject to approval of the draft Long Term Plan in June 2015. Council staff advice is that to maximise the value of investment and avoid disruption to the community, delivery of the village centre upgrade be done subject to the Dominion Road corridor also being approved as part of the draft Regional Land Transport Plan 2015-2025.

22.     If the budget for the Dominion Road corridor project is not secured, other projects identified through a design exercise carried out in 2013 (Attachment A) can form the basis for further design work.

23.     It is noted that should the project budget remain in financial year 2017/18 of the Long Term Plan, Council staff will not proceed with any further work on the project until July 2017.

24.     Council staff will provide an update to the Puketāpapa Local Board following approval of the Draft Long Term Plan and Draft Regional Land Transport Plan. This update will enable the Local Board to communicate the outcome to stakeholders.

Stakeholder feedback

25.     In June 2014, the Local Board carried out public consultation on project options for Roskill Village. The Local Board hosted a consultation session with key stakeholders on 10 June 2014 and launched a survey on 24 June 2014. 59 responses were received to the survey. The top four priorities to emerge from the public consultation were:

·     Improvements to shop fronts

·     Art work

·     Planting

·     Improvements to the pedestrian connection from Dominion Road to the public car park to the western side of Roskill Village.

26.     Whilst the majority of these projects could be delivered with the available budget, it would not be appropriate to spend public funds on improvements to shop fronts which are privately owned.


Consideration

Local Board Views and Implications

27.     There have been a number of workshops held with the Puketapapa Local Board to discuss the projects that could be delivered in Roskill Village with the $500,000 budget.

Maori Impact Statement

28.     Mt Roskill has a long history of Maori habitation prior to European settlement.

29.     Should the project budget remain in financial year 2017/18 of the Long Term Plan, Council staff will proceed with further work on the project in July 2017. Once work on the project recommences Council staff will engage with mana whenua.

Implementation Issues

30.     The report sets out a proposed strategy for implementation of the Mt Roskill village centre upgrade. Council staff will provide an update to the Puketapapa Local Board following approval of the Draft Long Term Plan and Draft Regional Land Transport Plan. This update will enable the Local Board to communicate the outcome to stakeholders.

Puketāpapa Local Board views on Proposed Private Plan Change 372 (Three Kings Precinct)

 

File No.: CP2015/07254

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       To provide the Puketāpapa Local Board views on Private Plan Change 372 (Three Kings Precinct) for inclusion in the Section 42A Report – Proposed Private Plan Change 372 to the Auckland Council District Plan: Operative Auckland City (Isthmus Section 1999).

Executive Summary

 

2.       In September 2014, Fletcher Residential Ltd lodged two Proposed Plan Modifications 372 and 373 as private plan change requests (PA 372 and PA 373) to redevelop its quarry lands at Three Kings under the operative district plan for Auckland City (Isthmus Section 1999). Private Plan Change 372 is based on a possible land exchange in the Three Kings Reserve area, and PA 373 involves only land owned by Fletchers. The land exchange is currently under investigation and negotiation between Auckland Council Property Ltd (ACPL) on behalf of Auckland Council, and Fletcher Residential Ltd.  Hearings are scheduled for May to consider only PA 372 at this stage.

3.       The Puketāpapa Local Board has a strong interest in the development of the Three Kings Area, and in August 2014, following extensive community consultation, produced the Three Kings Plan to guide future development across the Three Kings Precinct area over a 30 year timeframe. The Precinct includes the area under consideration in Plan Change 372.

4.       A number of discussions and workshops have been held October 2014 – April 2015 which have considered; the process for the board in providing its feedback for inclusion in the Hearings report (Section 42A Report); public feedback on the proposed private plan changes; discussions and deliberations regarding the ACPL investigation into the land exchange; and most recently advice regarding the consistency of the private plan changes with the Three Kings Plan.

5.       The Board now wishes to provide its views to the Planning Commissioners who will consider Plan Change 372. These views are substantially based on how well the proposed Plan Change meets the objectives of the Three Kings Plan.

6.       The Board is supportive of integrated development across the Three Kings Precinct, including a high quality residential development on the Three Kings site that connects to the surrounding community, rehabilitates the landscape, enhances access to Te Tatua-a-Riukiuta, and meets other objectives of the Three Kings Plan.

7.       The Board has now received assessments from the Auckland Council North-West Planning team and Beca Consultants which provide advice about how well the Plan Change meets the objectives of the Three Kings Plan (Attachments B:  North West Planning team Comparison of Plan Change 372 and 373 with the Three Kings Plan and Attachment C: Beca Ltd Planning Advice on the Three Kings Land Swap Proposal- Interim Draft).

8.       Based on this advice and its own considerations, the Board has developed a position on Plan Change 372.

9.       The Board has a number of objections to the Plan Change including the proposed fill levels, the lack of landscape rehabilitation, poor connections to the town centre and to residential areas to the east and west, and the lack of affordable and social housing. A major concern is the impact of the 15-17m ‘drop’ into the development from surrounding areas. The Board believes that this feature alone compromises many key objectives of the Three Kings Plan. The Board does not believe that the developer has consulted adequately on this key aspect of the Plan Change.

10.     The Board seeks changes to the proposed Plan Change 372 in light of its concerns.

11.     The discussion of key issues and outline of specific concerns to the board are provided in the Puketāpapa Local Board Views on Proposed Private Plan Change 372 (Three Kings Precinct) (Attachment A).

 

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)        agree the views outlined in the Puketāpapa Local Board Views on Proposed Private Plan Change 372 (Three Kings Precinct) for inclusion in the Section 42A Report – Proposed Private Plan Change 372 to the Auckland Council District Plan: Operative Auckland City (Isthmus Section 1999).

b)        note that the original intention to decide on the potential land exchange and the outcome of PA 372 was to consider both matters together. They are now in a separate process, due to the extra time required to conclude the land exchange negotiations and the Board requests that the Hearings Panel take this into account before making their final decisions.
