Whau Local Board Chairperson - Catherine Farmer's report

 

File No.: CP2015/08946

 

  

 

 

Rates Increases

1.         During the last few months we have been working on long term plan discussions and the Mayor has provided direction on how to improve Auckland’s traffic congestion. Since the proposal to introduce motorway tolls, or a regional fuel tax were not supported by central government a transport levy was put up as an alternative which could be immediately applied. It is $114 for households and $183 for businesses.

2.         The average rates rise is 9.9%, however Whau is well over that at 15.7%, with only two other boards higher at 16%. The rates rise was decided at the Auckland Council Budget Committee earlier this month.

 

Empowering Communities

3.         There is an initiative by the Auckland Council to employ brokers to work more directly with community groups.  The driver for this is a saving $1.6 million dollars in staffing overheads. This will bring change in how we connect with our communities and the policy development is being worked through.

 

Anzac Day Ceremonies

4.         On April 25th Anzac Day there were several parades in Whau.  I attended the March and ceremony at the New Lynn RSA and there was a much larger attendance than in previous years. Celebrating 100 years since the First World War saw many people attending the Cenotaph Dawn Service as well.

 

Toi Te Uku Opening

5.         The Portage Ceramics Trust officially opened their premises at 8 Ambrico Place, New Lynn to the public on Saturday 2nd May.  The building houses the Richard Quinn Crown Lynn Pottery collection and is the culmination of a ten year process to house it in one place.

RESPONSES AND PROGRESS REPORTS

 

WEST LYNN ROAD, TITIRANGI - PROPOSED NO STOPPING AT ALL TIMES (NSAAT) RESTRICTION

5.       Auckland Transport has received expressions of concern regarding the safety and operation of West Lynn Road in the vicinity of the West Lynn Road/Titirangi Road intersection.

6.       Site observations indicate that vehicles currently park on the southern side of West Lynn Road in the vicinity of Titirangi Road. This restricts traffic on West Lynn Road into a single lane as they approach this busy intersection and causes operational issues at this location, particularly during peak periods. In addition the majority of the vehicles approaching the intersection were observed to be crossing the centreline to pass the parked vehicles. This is considered a safety issue as it has the potential to cause crashes between vehicles approaching the intersection on West Lynn Road and vehicles turning into West Lynn Road from Titirangi Road.

 

7.       Therefore to help improve the operation and safety of the intersection of West Lynn Road and Titirangi Road, a NSAAT restriction is proposed at the location indicated on the attached aerial photograph.

 

Response from the Local Board

8.       The Local Board Transport Portfolio holders are happy with the proposal.

 

 

MINOR SAFETY IMPROVEMENT WORKS – RAISED TABLES ON ST JUDE STREET AND GREAT NORTH ROAD

9.       As part of Auckland Transport’s commitment to improve road safety and reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on the road network, St Jude Street and Great North Road roundabout was identified as a high risk intersection. There were 58 reported crashes (Injury Accident equal: 1 serious and 9 minor) at the intersection between 2009 and 2013. The majority of crashes were related to vehicles failing to give way on either St Jude Street or Great North Road approaches. It is also noted that four crashes were pedestrian related, with two occurring at the zebra crossing on St Jude Street.

10.     Auckland Transport has investigated the intersection and considers it appropriate to install speed tables at the existing zebra crossings on St Jude Street and Great North Road. The objective of the proposal is to slow down the speed of vehicles approaching and/or leaving the roundabout on these roads as well as provide a safer zebra crossing facility for pedestrians.

11.     Details of the proposed works are shown on the enclosed layout plans.

 

Response from the Local Board

12.     The Local Board Transport Portfolio holders are happy with the proposal.

 

 

TIVERTON-WOLVERTON ALTERNATIVE CYCLE ROUTE - MULGAN ST IMPROVEMENTS

13.     As part of the Wolverton-Tiverton Alternative Cycle Route, some changes have been proposed for Mulgan Street – at the intersection of Whitney, Mulgan and Margate, and a little further down the road at the intersection of Margate and Mary Dreaver Street.

14.     Details of the proposed works are shown on the enclosed layout plans.

 

Response from the Local Board

15.     The Local Board Transport Portfolio holders are happy with the proposal.

 

 

ENCROACHMENTS ON LAND OWNED BY AUCKLAND TRANSPORT - THE WHAU BRIDGE ON GREAT NORTH ROAD

16.     A request for Auckland Transport to investigate the encroachments.

 

Response

17.     At the Board’s request, Parks – West, have investigated the possibility of planting in the area of the encroachment. . The Local Board Parks Portfolio Representatives have considered the options and propose delaying consideration of the encroachment issue, pending installation of the bridge sign project and the planning for the Coastal walkway.  Local Board Services will be working with Auckland Transport in drafting a letter to the landowner updating him on the situation.

 


GREAT NORTH ROAD AND SABULITE ROAD CAR PARKING ISSUES

18.     A request has been received from the Local Board for Auckland Transport to look at the cars parked on road reserve on the corner of Great North Road and Sabulite Road.

 

Update

19.     Auckland Transport apologies for the delay in responding to this request.  Auckland Transport is seeking legal advice on this matter due to a decision made by the legacy Waitakere City Council to allow the sale yard to park cars on the road reserve. . Once legal advice is obtained Auckland Transport will report back to the Local Board on what action AT is able to take, to allow the Local Board to consider options on enhancing this area.

 

 

ST GEORGE STREET, ST JUDE ROAD & GREAT NORTH ROAD AVONDALE ROUNDABOUT TO A SIGNALISED INTERSECTION

20.      A request from the Local Board Transport Lead to look at converting the St George Street, St Jude Road and Great North Road Avondale roundabout into a signalised intersection.

 

Response

21.     Auckland Transport investigation has found that converting this intersection from a roundabout to a signalised intersection will require closing one of the legs, and require significant cost for this upgrade.

22.     The cost-benefit analysis of signalising this intersection is not favourable, as Great North Road does not experience significant delays due to having to give way to other approaches. Rather the delays experienced are due to the high traffic demand city-bound and west-bound and due to the railway line on St Jude Street. AT has not observed any major congestion issues at the roundabout during off-peak hours however the demand exists on the main arterial, Great North Road.

23.     Auckland Transport has added the potential signalisation of this roundabout onto it’s Signals Programme, however due to the reasons above and the significant costs, the priority of this intersection is low and unlikely to go ahead, when compared to other intersections with more serious safety issues, waiting for funding for signalisation.

 

DANGEROUS INTERSECTION CROYDON/TITIRANGI ROADS

24.     Auckland Transport is investigating this intersection with a view to proposing a solution that will improve the safety and efficiency of the intersection. Auckland Transport hopes to complete this investigation in the next 4 monthsUpdates will be provided when there are options available.

6.       Main Works: Construction is subject to funding availability in the new LTP yet to be adopted by Auckland Council (assumed to be 2018).

 

EMU Procurement

7.       AT currently has a total of 51 three-car units in Auckland with 42 of these issued with provisional acceptance.  Five six-car services are operating during Manukau peak times.  Non-peak services have been operating between Britomart and Papakura and driver conversion trains are running out to Swanson on a regular basis.

 

PT Operations

Public Transport overall

8.       There has been another big jump in the numbers using public transport in Auckland.  Annual patronage now exceeds 78 million boardings, an increase of 10%. In March, there were 8.4 million boardings, a jump of more than 1 million on March 2014.

 

Rail Improvements

9.       The big performer was rail which reached 13.4 million passenger trips for the year, an annual increase of 21%.  March saw a monthly record high of 1.56 million train trips, an increase of 29% on March last year.  The growth is put down to the enhanced travel experience and additional capacity provided by the new electric trains and greater service frequency introduced over recent years.

10.     Auckland Transport is aiming to have a full electric network by the end of July, except for the link between Papakura and Pukekohe which will continue to use diesel trains.  These will be refurbished over time to provide an enhanced experience.  The electric trains will provide improved travel experience and more capacity on the Southern and Western Lines.

 

Bus Improvements

11.     March was also a record-breaking month on the Northern Express, with patronage up almost 17% on the same month last year.  The 12 month total reached 2.8 million.  It was also a record for other bus services as patronage rose 8% to 56.6 million.  Ferry numbers for the year totalled 5.4 million trips, up 5% on an annual basis.

12.     Growth on bus services is attributed to increased services and frequency, improving travel times from new bus priority lanes and a significant improvement in service punctuality being achieved by bus operators through new timetables.  Further service level increases and punctuality improvements are planned for later this year along with the introduction of double decker buses on a number of routes.  New network designs will also be introduced from later this year.

 

Road Design and Development

Te Atatu Road Improvements

13.     Road Corridor Improvement project on Te Atatu Rd from School Road/Edmonton Road intersection to SH16.  Building consents have now been obtained.  Three contractors been short-listed to submit a tender for the physical works.  Construction is targeted to start in July 2015 with a view towards completion around January 2017.

Albany Highway

14.     The Albany Highway North Upgrade is a 4km road widening of Albany Highway between Schnapper Rock Road and Albany Expressway.  Construction is approximately 25% complete.  The majority of the site is operating with a 30 km/hr speed limit, which results in a 2-3 minute delay to vehicles.  Disruption to neighbouring land owners due to construction is well managed, with some positive feedback received regarding the construction team's approach to resolving issues.

 

Lincoln Road Improvements

15.     The project involves widening Lincoln Road between Te Pai Place and Motorway Interchange to accommodate additional transit/bus lanes on both sides.  A stakeholders workshop was conducted in March to discuss the best identified options for storm water treatment sites. At the same time a meeting was arranged with Parks and Planning to come-up with best layout for the road access for the properties between Daytona Reserve and Lincoln Road.

 

Mill Road Improvements

16.     The Redoubt Road - Mill Road corridor provides an arterial road connection east of State High 1 between Manukau, Papakura and Drury and includes Murphys Road from Redoubt Road to Flatbush School Road.  The Notice of Requirement has been notified for the northern section of this project and submissions close in May 2015.  AT held public open days in mid-April.

 

Cycle Initiatives

17.     An information day has been held to share design concepts for the second stage of the Beach Road walking and cycling project.  Stage two will deliver a streetscape upgrade and continue the cycleway along Beach Road from the intersection with Mahuhu Crescent through to Britomart Place.  Construction is expected to begin in February and be completed in July.

 

Services

Road Safety

18.     A regional alcohol #Drunksense #Straightsense campaign was delivered.  The programme targeted males aged 18-25 years.  To reach the target audience, a combination of cinema advertisements, Facebook and social media activities were undertaken.  Localised interventions including promotions of key messages was undertaken at Auckland Council Movies in the Park, NRL Auckland Nines, Kumeu A&P Show and Pasifika.

19.     AT delivered a Red Light Running regional campaign supporting the installation of new red light cameras and locations in partnership with enforcement support by NZ Police.

 

Safer Communities and Schools Travelwise programme

20.     Over 120 students from 25 secondary schools attended the regional Travelwise Secondary Schools Summit on 18 March 2015.  The objective of this event was to introduce Travelwise leaders to the resources and skills they need to ‘get going’ on developing a successful Travelwise campaign for their school community.  Students participated in an AT Metro public transport challenge, and worked in teams to develop and present a road safety campaign that they would deliver in their school.

21.     In March 2015, 414 students and 77 Travelwise lead teachers attended four area-based Travelwise Primary student workshops.  The workshops were an opportunity for students and teachers to share ideas and be motivated to further develop road safety activities and initiatives in their schools.

22.     Since 1 July 2014, 79 new Walking School Buses have been established, exceeding the KPI by 43 new Walking School Buses.

23.     The following schools received safety infrastructure over the last quarter to support the schools’ travel plan initiatives:

·        Mayfield School

·        Koru School

·        Favona School

·        Otahuhu Intermediate

·        Otahuhu Primary School

·        St. Josephs School

·        Pakuranga College

 

Travel Demand

24.     Auckland Council and AT have jointly developed a business action plan for the Auckland Council Travel Plan.  The travel plan was approved for implementation by the Executive team at the end of January.  The travel plan is currently in the process of being approved by PSA delegates before it goes out for staff consultation.  Auckland Council also celebrated ‘Go By Bike Day’ with Cycle Information Sessions at the main centres.  The sessions included route planning advice for cyclists, safety tips and distribution of resources.

 

Walk 2 Work Day

25.     National ‘Walk2Work Day’ was held on Wednesday 11 March.  AT supported the day with a regional radio campaign, a dedicated web page and an online photo competition.  On the day, AT organised the ZM Black Thunder radio station vehicles to engage with people walking near Victoria Park and on Karangahape Road.  AT also worked with Living Streets Aotearoa to engage with people walking to work or to public transport at Devonport Wharf, and the Sunnynook and Smales Farm bus stations.

 

Road Corridor Delivery

Overview

26.     The Road Corridor Group is tasked with the responsibility for a wide range of activities within the Road Corridor.  These include but are not limited to:

·        The Delivery of roading and streetlight maintenance and renewal programmes

·        Managing the access, co-ordination and traffic management impacts of activities taking place within the road corridor

·        Promote design innovation and efficiency around how work is carried out on the network

·        The development of long term asset management plans and modelling which support the decision making process around the management of our roading assets.

 

January – March Quarter key highlights

27.     The Road Corridor Delivery Team have a Year to date (YTD) target to deliver 580.9 km of resurfacing or pavement  and footpath renewals.  Sealed roads require periodic resurfacing to keep the sealed surface waterproof with good skid resistance.  Roads are resurfaced using either an asphalt or chipseal coating.  Pavement rehabilitation is undertaken when the road pavement reaches the end of its service life and is either  too rough, or expensive, to maintain.  New pavements are designed with a life expectancy of 25 years.

28.     As outlined in figure 1, to date AT has delivered 489.5km or 85% of the YTD programme and is on  track to complete the full programme by the end of the financial year in June.

29.     The renewal forward work programme for 2015/2016 will be published at the end of April.  This will identify the planned renewal works for roads, footpaths, structures and public transport.

30.     The streetlight tender process for the procurement of five contracts is well underway.  These contracts will commence on 1 July 2015 and coincide with a programme to replace 40,000 x 70w luminaires currently on the network with Light Emitting Diodes.  This is a five-year renewal programme aimed initially at residential streets.  A priority matrix will be developed for other key areas such as town centres.  The use of LEDs not only reduces electricity consumption by 50-60% but also plays a part in producing a clearer white light which helps in the overall effort to improve road safety.

31.     To date the management of the 6,885km footpath network has been subjected to the policies of the legacy councils and, as a result, has created inconsistencies across the region in standards and practice.  In response a regional footpath renewal strategy is now being developed.  The aim is to achieve a consistent and coherent approach to the renewal and maintenance of AT’s footpath assets.  The approach will also align with level of service requirements whilst taking into account key factors such as affordability and value for money for the ratepayers of Auckland.

Auckland Council Property Limited Local Board Six-Monthly Update 1 July to 31 December 2014

 

File No.: CP2015/08519

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       To give the Whau Local Board an overview of Auckland Council Property Limited’s (ACPL) activities for the six months 1 July to 31 December 2014.

Executive Summary

2.       ACPL’s vision centres on “creating value from property assets” by providing commercial expertise and value for money to Auckland Council in managing its property portfolio, and acquisition and disposal activities.  The concept of “value” includes but is not limited to financial value. In addition to financial value, a growing aspect of ACPL’s work has been to use surplus council property to help achieve the council’s housing supply and urban regeneration objectives. We will also identify opportunities to add value by improving the use of council service property such as redevelopment of under-utilised sites.

3.       This report sets out a summary of ACPL activities for the past six months that contribute to our seven key outcomes as outlined in our Statement of Intent (SOI) 2014 to 2017 and noted below. Activity detail is broken down by business unit or work-stream, with a focus on local board specific activities where applicable.

4.       ACPL’s seven key outcomes:

§   Properties managed for the council and Auckland Transport (AT) are maintained to be fit for purpose and achieve optimum net returns.

§   Redevelopment/regeneration projects involving other sector partners are efficiently planned and managed to help achieve a quality compact Auckland.

§   ACPL contributes exemplar housing developments to increase the supply of housing in Auckland, particularly in the more affordable spectrum of the market, working with partners.

§   Council business interests are managed to protect long term value and achieve budgeted net income. 

§   Property acquisitions are undertaken in a commercially robust manner and in accordance with the council and AT agreed requirements and relevant legislation.

§   Properties are disposed of for the council in a commercially robust manner once declared surplus.

§   The council is provided with a commercial perspective on planning and development initiatives to support effective implementation of those initiatives.

5.       Local board specific supporting detail is included in Attachments A, B, and C.

 

Recommendation

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      Receives the Auckland Council Property Limited Local Board Six-Monthly update 1           July to 31 December 2014.

 

 

Comments

Workshops and Meetings

6.       A schedule of Whau Local Board workshops and meetings attended by ACPL representatives from July to December is included as Attachment A. The list includes property specific meetings and workshops relating to general property management and the ongoing portfolio Rationalisation Process.

Property Portfolio Management

7.       ACPL manages property owned by the council and AT that are not currently required for service or infrastructure purposes. These are properties that are not immediately required for service delivery or infrastructure development but are being held for use in a planned future project such as road construction/widening or the expansion of parks.

8.       The property portfolio continued to grow during the last six months and now totals 1306 properties, an increase of 121 since our January-June 2014 update. The current property portfolio includes industrial sites and buildings, retail tenancies, cafés, restaurants, offices and a substantial portfolio of residential properties.

9.       ACPL’s specialist property knowledge and understanding enables us to optimise revenue streams and identify future opportunities.  ACPL’s return on the property portfolio for the six months ending 31 December 2014 provides the shareholder a net surplus of $2.9m ahead of budget, with an actual surplus of $11.8m against budget of $23m. The average monthly vacancy rate for the period is 1.68% which is under the SOI targets of 5%.

10.     A Properties Managed schedule is included as Attachment B of this report. The schedule details:

§   Current ACPL-managed commercial and residential property within the Whau Local Board

§   Each property’s classification or reason for retention

§   The nature of the property, such as a café within a library, or a residential property with a tenancy in place

§   The budget under which operating expenditure and lease revenue for the property is reported eg regional or local board.

11.     A report indicating portfolio movement in the local board area is attached as Attachment C. The report details all new acquisitions including the reason for acquisition, any transfers and the reason for transfer, and any disposals.

Portfolio Review and Rationalisation

Overview

12.     ACPL is required to undertake ongoing rationalisation of the council’s non-service assets. This includes identifying properties from within council’s portfolio that may be suitable for potential sale and development if appropriate. ACPL has a particular focus on achieving housing outcomes. Identifying potential sale properties contributes to the Auckland Plan focus of accommodating the significant growth projected for the region over the coming decades, by providing the council with an efficient use of capital and prioritisation of funds to achieve its activities and projects.

Redevelopment/Regeneration and Housing Supply Initiatives

Overview  

16.     ACPL is contributing commercial input into approximately 54 region wide council-driven regeneration and housing supply initiatives. Involvement extends from provision of initial feasibility advice through to implementation, with projects ranging in size from $415k to in excess of $100million. ACPL works closely with the local boards on ACPL-led developments to ensure we give effect to the local boards’ place-shaping role.

17.     ACPL is working with the wider council group to formulate a process or approach for identifying and realising optimisation opportunities that exist for service assets. This will provide opportunities to work with local boards on development opportunities that deliver wider strategic benefit consistent with the Auckland plan such as intensification, town centre regeneration and affordable housing. It will also improve service outcomes through obtaining more effective use of property assets.

18.     ACPL is also actively contributing to the Housing Strategy Action Plan, which is a council initiative focusing on non-regulatory efforts to encourage and increase affordable residential development. We have an SOI target to undertake five housing development projects over three years that will improve housing affordability and the supply of affordable housing encompassing CHO involvement. We are currently actively working on 13 such projects.

Local Activities

19.     New Lynn Infratil Joint Development: The residential tower is complete. Progression with potential retain tenants to increase uptake is underway. 

20.     Racecourse Parade: This 3,500sqm site has been identified as holding development potential for housing outcomes. The properties were cleared for sale and development by the Governing Body in April 2014.  The site is registered as an SHA (Special Housing Area).

21.     A master plan was undertaken by ACPL that included 24-26 Racecourse Parade, and adjoining properties, which showed how mixed use development with more intensive housing could be delivered to help initiate and support the regeneration of the Avondale town centre.

22.     24 and 26 Racecourse Parade has the potential to deliver at least 15 new homes over four years. The development will also provide a mix of housing types, matched to current shortages and has the potential to include one, two or three-bedroom units. The development adjoins Avondale Central Reserve and overlooks the Avondale race course.

23.     The land is zoned Town Centre under the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan. It is subject to a precinct overlay identified as Avondale 2 sub-precinct B. ACPL will give developers guidance to ensure the development delivers within the criteria set by Housing Areas and Special Housing Areas Act.

24.     Clearing of the land has been delayed and therefore reference design will be completed by mid-2015 and will inform prospective developers of Council's desired outcomes and provide the basis of a development agreement.

25.     1 Trent Street, Avondale: This is a residential site capable of holding around 34 housing units. The site was designated as a Special Housing Area (SHA) in October 2013. The outcome sought is a good quality mixed tenure housing development on the site. A Sale and Purchase agreement has been agreed with NZ Housing Foundation for development of approximately 34 affordable homes.

26.     12-22 Totara Avenue, New Lynn: The property was purchased to help facilitate the regeneration of New Lynn and is in the next stage in development. Property was amended from Auckland Transport to Auckland Council. Rationalisation process commenced in June 2014.  No alternative service uses were identified.  Governing body approved disposal and development of site in December 2014.


Acquisitions

Overview  

27.     ACPL continues to support council and AT programmes and projects by negotiating required property acquisitions. All such acquisitions are funded through approved council or AT budgets. We also provide advice to assist with budgets, business cases and strategy to support an acquisition.

28.     From the commencement of the 2015 financial year, 1 July 2014 to 31 January 2015, 73 property purchases were completed for the council and AT to the value of $56m. All of the property acquisitions met independent valuation thresholds agreed with AT, the council and Public Works Act 1981 requirements. 

 

Council Acquisitions

29.     Over the past six months 15 properties were acquired to meet council open space and storm water requirements and to contribute to City Transformation projects. These included the following acquisitions in or neighbouring the Whau Local Board area.

The focus was on acquisitions to support major transport projects including AMETI (17 acquisitions) City Rail Link Property Acquisition (23 acquisitions) and Northern Strategic Growth Area (4 acquisitions). Full details of relevant AT projects and associated acquisitions will come to the local board directly from AT.

Business Interests

31.     ACPL also optimises the commercial return from assets it manages on council’s behalf. This comprises two forestry enterprises, two landfills and four quarries. There are currently no ACPL managed business interests in the Whau Local Board area.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

32.     This report is for the Whau Local Board’s information.

Māori impact statement

33.     Whatungarongaro te tangata, toitū te whenua. The importance of effective communication and engagement with Māori on the subject of land is understood.  ACPL has accordingly developed robust engagement with the 19 mana whenua groups for our core business activities.

34.     Key engagement activities include: identifying cultural significance concerns regarding disposal properties, flagging commercial interests, development partnering discussions and issues relating to property management such as protection of wāhi tapu or joint management arising from the resolution of Treaty Settlements. ACPL also engages with relevant mana whenua in respect of development outcomes for ACPL lead projects where appropriate. ACPL will advise the Whau Local Board as appropriate of any discussions that arise in the local board’s area.

35.     ACPL undertook to be part of council’s Māori Responsiveness Plan (MRP) pilot programme. The project’s key output is an operational document outlining ACPL’s contribution to council’s strategic and operational commitments to Māori. The MRP was finalised and approved by the ACPL Board in December 2014 and the focus will move to identifying priority areas for implementation. A copy of this is available on the ACPL website.

Implementation

36.     There are no implementation issues.

File No.: CP2015/08370

 

  

 

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek approval from the Whau Local Board, for new road name for a Jointly Owned Access Lot (JOAL) created by way of Subdivision at 46, 48 St Leonards Road and 3 Kelkirk Street, Kelston.

Executive Summary

2.       Auckland Council has road naming guidelines that set out the requirements and criteria of the Council for proposed road names. These requirements and criteria have been applied in this situation to ensure consistency of road naming for the Auckland Council.

3.       Following assessment against the road naming criteria, the road names Tamatimu Lane, Kumanu Lane and Pakau Lane were determined to meet the road naming policy criteria.

4.       Local Iwi groups were consulted. Consultation with Pani Gleeson of Ngati Whatua Orakei and Edward Ashby of the Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority were consulted but because high capacity of requests for naming projects Pani could not suggest any names. Edward also could not suggest any names but was supportive of Kumanu Lane and Pakau Lane.

5.       The name Tamatimu Lane, proposed by the Applicant and the names Kumanu Lane and Pakau Lane are recommended for approval to the Local Board.

 

Recommendation

That the Whau Local Board:

a)         Pursuant to Section 319(1)(j), of the Local Government Act 1974, considers for             approval, the road name Tamatimu Lane, proposed by the Applicant, for the new             road created by way of subdivision at 46, 48 St Leonards Road and 3 Kelkirk             Street, Kelston, while noting that Kumanu Lane and Pakau Lane also meet the road             naming criteria.

 

Comments

6.       The Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines allowed that where a new road needs to be named as a result of a subdivision or development, the subdivider/developer shall be given the opportunity of suggesting their preferred new road name for the Council’s approval.

7.       In 2013, Auckland Council approved an Application for a combined land use and subdivision consent to undertake a subdivision creating 11 residential allotments at 46, 48 St Leonards Road and Kelkirk Street, Kelston. The subdivision contains a Jointly Owned Access Lot (JOAL), which will provide road access to 6 residential allotments. The Consent holder has proposed to label the Jointly Owned Access Lot (JOAL) Tamatimu Lane (SUB2013-986).

8.       The Applicant has proposed the following names for consideration for the road created as part of the development at 46, 48 St Leonards Road and Kelkirk Street, Kelston.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

9.       The decision sought from the Whau Local Board for this report does not trigger any significant policy and is not considered to have any immediate impact on the community.

Māori impact statement

10.     The decision sought from the Whau Local Board on this report is linked to the Auckland Plan Outcome, “A Maori identity that is Auckland’s point of difference in the World”. The use of Maori names for roads, buildings and other public places is an opportunity to publicly demonstrate Maori identity.

Implementation

11.     The Resource Consenting Department is involved in ensuring that the appropriate road name signage will be installed accordingly once an approval is obtained for the new road name.

Comments

6.       In March 2014, the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee resolved to continue the interim community funding approach for the 2014/2015 financial year (REG/20014/36).This interim community funding approach remains in place until the implementation of the new Community Grants Policy on 1 July 2015.

7.       Through community grants, the local board recognises the vital role that community groups and organisations play in developing strong, sustainable communities. The Whau Local Board Community Discretionary Fund aims to assist groups to provide activities, projects, programmes, initiatives and events that make a positive contribution within the local board area.

8.       When reviewing applications, the local board should be guided by the following objectives of the fund (these are not eligibility criteria, rather they are guidelines to help the local board when considering the merits of each proposal):

·   the benefit of the proposal to the local area

·   the group’s role in the local area

·   the alignment of the proposal with the priorities of the boards; such as

o     young people

o     Maori

o     the environment

o     culture and arts

o     social cohesion

o     recreation and sport

o     heritage

9.       This fund is allocated at the local board’s discretion. In accordance with its fiduciary duties, the local board is to act honestly, avoid conflicts of interest and act in what the local board believes to be the best interests of the community.

10.     Two community funding rounds were scheduled for the 2014-15 financial year. The first round closed on 15 July 2014. The second round closed on 15 March 2015. The fund was advertised through local community networks, local publications and on the Auckland Council website.

11.     Thirty-two applications were received in this round, with a total requested of $185,967.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

12.     Local board feedback on the community funding applications was sought at a workshop with the Whau Local Board.

Māori impact statement

13.     Community funding is a general programme of interest and accessible to a wide range of groups, including Maori. Maori are therefore likely to benefit alongside other groups in the community.

Implementation

14.     The allocation of grants to community groups is within the adopted annual plan budget.

15.     Following the Whau Local Board allocating funding for round two, staff will notify the applicants of the local board decision.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

The programme was established 4 years ago in response to few hands on training programmes available for at-risk youth. The programme has been highly successful because it meets a need that is not available not just within west Auckland, but nationally. We work with the top 10% of young offenders, referrals predominantly from CYF (Youth Justice). 60% are Maori/Pacific ethnicity. The programme upskills youth with no formal education, building their confidence and providing mentorship support to navigate them to positive pathways. Located in the Whau Local Board provides ease of access to the community.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

The programme has historical proven success in reducing re-offending among young men aged 15-18 years, with over 50% of youth who complete our programme going onto secure employment or engage in long term career based training. Additionally 50% of youth do not re-offend within 18-months post completion of the programme, well above national re-offending statistics for this demographic. 

Outcomes: increasing participation by young people (at-risk youth) in local community activities, employment and training within Whau and surround areas, providing for a safer environment through reducing reoffending. We rely on revenue from Council, philanthropic and MSD to support our delivery.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

At the end of each programme intake we conduct an end of programme evaluation. We also record attendance rates, 1,3 and 6 month follow ups to ensure youth are remaining on track with their goal plan. We also conduct end of day debrief sessions during the intensive 10-day programme. We also track reoffending rates through our partnership with Police. A spreadsheet is also maintaining tracking youth long term.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

The Trust has been successful delivering this programme for the past 4 years, and also holds CYF403 accreditation status with

Child Youth and Family, evidence that the programme is delivered safely and recognised as a quality provider. SFMCT is also looking to implement a young females programme mid this year pending funding support from the Ministry of Social Development.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

We have been providing this service in West Auckland for 17 years and there has been a constant demand for our services.   We consistently have waiting lists for our mentors.  

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

Ensuring fatherless boys grow up to be good citizens and avoid drifting into dysfunctional behaviours, gangs etc.  It means that solo caregivers get additional ongoing support and it means that the boys perform better at school and are therefore less disruptive.  

Fatherless boys are seriously over-represented in crime statistics and prisons.  A regular mentor makes all the difference.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

We records all Little Buddy/Big Buddy outcomes on our database.  The volunteer co-ordinatoresw keep ongoing supervision with all parties involved.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

We have been providing essentially the same service for 1`7 years, with modifications if and when experienced has indicated the need.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

Through this event WIA has been able to bring together other ethnic groups and share this rich cultural event with a universal message. Prior events have advocated for Equality for Women, youth crime, family violence prevention, health and well being & race relations. This festivity has paved the way for

our Indian immigrants to integrate into NZ and partake in Indian festivities which they have enjoyed all their lives in their home country. Youth to participate in the event through performance and being part o fthe organising committee which allows them to contribute to the community at a young age.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

By bringing the local people to this event, we are able to demonstrate that the local board has a vested interest in the community, their culture and their well-being. It presents an opportunity to advocate community messages, social and welfare services available to the community which otherwise may not be possible. Providing a platform for the local board members to interact with their local people encourages greater community involvement and respect for local boards, law and order.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

There are over 200 participants involved with the event. It ranges to being part of the organising committee, performing cultural items, stage drama, being food and trade stall holders. The event is attended by a number of dignitaries, politicians and community leaders & local police who are able to connect with their people.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

WIA will continue this event as a platform

 to integrate the immigrants into their new community and share their culture with rest of NZ.

 to encourage youth to take an active part in the event and wellbeing of their community.

 to advocate and educate our community on pressing community issues thereby becoming better citizens.

 to involve Police, Ministry of Health, social worker and community organisation in our events so the wider community have access to them.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

Our club is small but we have incredibly talented junior athletes. The project of requesting funding for gazebos came about when our last gazebo ripped due to strong winds at Auckland Junior Relay Championships at Mt Smart. It was already very old. Many other junior athletic clubs have branded gazebos that they use as a 'home-base' during athletic competitions. These branded gazebo's will provide a visual reference, shade and shelter for our athletes and their families and also ensure Avondale has a strong presence at local and national events.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

The gazebo's will instill pride and a sense of belonging - our kids come from Avondale, and we want to make sure our presence is felt around Auckland and around NZ at athletic competitions. And on a practical note, it will provide the much-needed shelter and shade we need if the weather turns bad at events.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

Creating a home-base, ensuring shade and shelter and promoting Avondale as a strong junior athletic club.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

We have previously ordered and organised Tear drop flags with the help of funding from the Whau Local Board. This has made a big difference already. We just need to shelter our kids at competitions while promoting Avondale as a club and as a community.

Objectives

The Learning Collaborative (TLC) is a social enterprise that aims to place the determinants of a youth’s educational success completely within their control. We provide equitable access to tailored services - delivered by excellent young academic coaches and tutors - which promote self-driven learning and ensure that every individual can achieve personal academic excellence, regardless of their socio-economic background.

Activities

We are delivering two services in 2015: 

Our Academic Coaching service works with Year 10-11 students through their transition into senior school examinations, preparing them to tackle the crucial years ahead. The service pairs students with a university-aged academic coach over a series of tailored one-on-one sessions aimed at strengthening fundamental critical thinking skills, developing individual learning styles and addressing gaps in content. 

Our Scholarship Courses centre on enabling success in the NZQA Scholarship exams, allowing students to enter the exams with confidence and ensure an excellent head start for their university careers. These courses fill a distinct gap in the market for NZQA Scholarship support, enabling greater chances of success for a wider segment of students attempting these exams.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

The premise of the need for TLC’s Academic Coaching service is rooted in our team’s personal experiences. Having recently been high school students ourselves, we appreciate the unique benefits that a personal academic coaching relationship can bring to a student’s educational success. However, an analysis of existing services indicate that access to academic coaching is limited, particularly for less affluent families, and thus our aim to address this need. Since February 2015, we have also been carrying out a pilot version of the Academic Coaching service, through which this need has been widely affirmed by students, parents and teachers alike.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

Too often, students fail to develop an effective learning style early on, resulting in studying becoming a chore and a stress point. Our Academic Coaching service will develop a well-rounded and versatile student outfitted with the skills and confidence to tackle the challenges that senior school examinations bring with them. Students will graduate from our programme with a strong foundation centred on independent learning that will enable fulfillment of their academic potential. We intend to impact pivotal academic milestones such as the achievement of University Entrance and rank score requirements for particular tertiary programmes.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

TLC emphasises collaboration with the teachers and parents of our students. We encourage direct communication between these stakeholders such that we understand the impact of coaching on a student’s behaviour and academic performance. In the long term, we intend to benchmark our students against population averages for academic achievement - for example, as of 2013 49.8% of 17 year olds failed to achieve University Entrance; our intention is to measure the difference that our service has on these prospects.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

The TLC leadership team comprises of individuals who were involved in starting up NCEA Campus and Cambridge Campus - charitable organisations that delivered revision courses to students across Auckland. Under our leadership, courses were delivered to over 5,000 students across 2012-2014. This has fostered expertise in the New Zealand education sector, particularly in the arena of addressing the needs of secondary schools across a range of deciles through delivering youth-on-youth services via a high quality tutor pool.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

* Hope volunteers are regularly out on the street in Avondale communicating with people, doing home visits and follow up. This is  where issues are seen firsthand e.g. no food or furniture in the house, people sleeping on the street, dysfunctional relationships,

* Seeing the increase of people attending our Community Lunches and requesting food bank parcels because of their desperate 

   situations

* Through communication with other local community organizations where community issues and ideas are discussed

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

Our activities will bring success to our clients in the following areas:

 

* Empowered to make better life choices for themselves and families

* More recognisable skills

* Improved physical, social and mental health and wellbeing

* Functional relationships

* Improved attitude to working and work related skills

* Relating to a positive social network

* Empowered to avoid abusive and addictive environments and behavior

How will you know if you have made this difference?

Activities are evaluated on outputs and outcomes. Regular team meetings include discussions and reports on:

1. Numbers attending programmes? 

2. What are people learning, gaining and accomplishing as a result?

3. The strengths and weaknesses - how can we change/improve what we do?

4. Do we continue the programme or do we try something else?

We regularly allow time for clients to communicate thus celebrating the positive changes in their lives.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

In 2006 the work began when our volunteers began seeing issues such as poverty, unemployment, addictions through connecting with people on the street and in homes. As a result they wanted to make a positive impact on Avondale and subsequently began growing and developing resources in order to offer appropriate activities that meet the social, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of low socially economic, at risk families and disadvantaged individuals. We have run The Hope Centre since 2012.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

Our Friendship Centres have been running since 1959, as a not for profit who supports the Elderly and people with disablity sector of our Community. It is vital that our Avondale and Blockhouse Bay centres continue to provide this support. It also gives a respite to caregivers within the community, particularly when they are sole providers alone at home in the care giver role. 

Communicare is a place for those who are isolated or living on their own. 

Games, activities, arts and crafts provide stimulation, contributing to participation and engagement.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

In the Avondale and Blockhouse Bay centres people from the Whau Community are able to access our services. The ability to be supported and stimulated plus finding  a community connection for both members and volunteers. For many elderly and people with disability who live on their own this can sometimes be the only way they can meet people, share activities along with a meal. For carers of our members it provides a small respite in what is a heavy burden on a daily basis.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

We will measure outcomes with evalution. Our members evaluate our service and we continually adjust and improve our systems based on feedback we are given. We also monitor centre memberhsip statistics to determine success.  Volunteers and carers are also encouraged  to provide feedback to help us improve.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

Our 23 Friendship centres run througout Auckland and have been established since 1959.

Objectives

Teaching young boys practical life skills, supporting their cultural heritage and believing that through perseverance they can achieve anything. We value the relationship between a Father and son, and our Fathers are encouraged to participate, and experience what the great outdoors has to offer our families.

Activities

Our programme delivers leadership opportunities for our children to learn how to fish, outdoor cooking, camping, service, leadership, learning Haka and other Pasifika traditions. The boys have made raw fish, learnt to cook on gas cookers, pitched tents and lots of other activities that have helped them develop and grow their identity. We believe that through these experiences, our boys will realize their capabilities through achieving their goals, and in turn have a positive impact in their families, peers, and in our community. Our boys are destined to become leaders in their families. We envisage leadership training opportunities, inspiring them to aim high and achieve their goals, ultimately building stronger communities together. Our future is our community.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

We have huge support from the community and the families for this programme. We have also had feedback thorough survey's that were sent out to each family who responded positively.The passion for this organisation came from identifying a need to support young boys who want to be a part of an active outdoor lifestyle, giving our young ones the opportunity to be well rounded, and adopt a “have a go” attitude.  We have an increasing number of enquiries from parents who want their children to be a part of this journey.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

Through this attitude we believe that they will realise their capabilities of achieving their goals, and will in turn have a positive impact in their families, among their peers, and in the community. The programme includes a reward system, whereby the boys will complete specific tasks and be rewarded with a badge. We envision to build stronger communities together.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

We will put out a survey to the parents of these families with their feedback.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

We previously organized two chartered fishing trips for 32 Fathers and sons (Ultimate Charetered Fishing Trips) and this was incredibly successful. These activities are building the confidence of our boys, and the feedback from the families has been outstanding.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

There is no service specifically for males in Auckland, but there is for women.

I have had conversations with Work and Income Managers and referral organisations that provide for males and there is a big need for the service in the Auckland communities and specifically in the Whau communities.

There are areas of high unemployment rates in the Whau area next to areas that have difficulty employing skilled workers, which indicates a lack of motivation,confidence and tools for men/women to job hunt.

The current Government has increased incentives  for low income earners to get off the benefit into employment.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

With the help of funding money we will be hiring a local Whau venue for recruitment seminars, therefore the money will be going back into the local community.

Community members will have the chance to reconnect with the local Cambridge Clothing Company , which has a rich heritage and strong community identity that traditionally employed 300 people amongst the community.

The local community will have the tools, confidence and motivation to actively job seek, with a greater chance of employment.

A greater number of community members employed will equip citizens not only financially but enable identity and pride in their community.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

Men will feel more prepared and confident to actively job seek, which will be communicated through a feedback form.

Men will be returning for a second free outfit if they have gained employment.

There will be ongoing participants in the job seeking and job preparation seminars.

There will be positive feedback about the service amongst the community.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

I am an experienced men's stylist and men's retail manager and hold a Bachelor of Social Practice with social work experience in community and family support.

The male and female recruitment volunteers come from HR and Recruitment backgrounds, therefore are highly experienced to equip and prepare job seekers.

Cambridge Clothing, Fix Up, Look Sharp's sponsor and main donator is the biggest suiting wholesaler in New Zealand.

We focus on the needs of single parent family success, and whilst they build/rebuild identities, we provide knowledge and options alongside long term practical support through a self-help network of single parents who give to receive and become role models for newer members.

Activities

Our trust holds a variety of adult, youth and family recreational, educational and social activities and events designed to empower single parents and their families. These include monthly support meetings in 4 areas of Auckland (west, south, central and north), workshops and presentations often with speakers on topics relevant to single parent needs, camps every 3 months with children’s camp and activity costs funded,  weekly sport’s social competitions, (netball, volleyball, touch rugby and soccer) youth committee meetings, weekend and holiday family and youth social and recreational events and activities designed by single parents and their youth themselves. Group Easter, Xmas and other celebrations are also held especially for families born outside New Zealand and without family interaction.

How will you acknowledge the Local Board if your application is successful?

We follow recommendation from the Auckland Council and add a 'thank you' to the council on our main website. Everyone will know and the news will travel across many websites giving support for single parents as single parents themselves are making trusts/societies so they can do things to help single parents in the community. Also, community groups and churches follow our moves and where we get funding. Basically, we are happy to do what is required of our group.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

We have recently started it in West Auckland and there's a lot of families that want to get involved. There's so many that eventually, in the not-so-distant future, we will make out own leagues. Fortunately, one of our board members ran netball leagues since a teenager with her single mother.

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

It will bring single parents out of isolation, anger, depression and basically give them a reason to keep rebuilding. It will benefit their health and build positive relationships between parents and teens. Both single parents and teens will build healthy friendships and support networks. They will take advantage of our other services as they will connect with the group which will benefit the whole family. They will choose a healthy hobby and by doing so, they role model something positive and healthy. All affected will become team players which is very good for single parent families who often break apart.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

We see radical change in both adults and children from a year onwards. They are happier, cope better and begin making goals and reaching for them. In the short run we save lives by giving hope (we stop both suicides and homicides), options and role modeling a bright future. Both parents and children become positive simply by learning they are normal and seeing others in worse situations. We will see them take advantage of other services.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

We've been doing this for 8 years now and we've learned a lot of lessons on the way. This is an extension of something already in existence.

What is your project/activity called?

At Risk Youth Health Sports & Fitness Bootcamp

What is your project/activity?

We are requesting funding for the Health Sports & Fitness Equipment used for the Youth Inspiration & Motivation Boot Camp.

The project involves motivational drills & skills through intensive Health Sports & Fitness Activities to encourage youth to stay out of trouble and realise their full potential. The boot camps promotes team work, self confidence and self achievement.

How have you established there is a need for this activity/project?

"The application of structured physical training programs has been shown to positively affect many risk factors for serious problem behaviours with at-risk youth, such as increased self-esteem, increased well-being, increased acquisition of "life skills" like goal setting and planning... fitness programs have positively affected at-risk youth problem behavious such as lowered substance abuse and criminal behaviour". (Proving Physical Fitness Programs to At-Risk Youth by Thomas R. Collingwood).

What difference will the activity/project make to the target community?

It will make the target community realise their leadership potential in a fun and adventurous environment where the participants will learn how to be leaders and be accountable to the group.

The programme will equip the at risk youth with the necessary skill set to continue on to the Limited Service Volunteer course run by the New Zealand Defence Force. Graduates of this programme have managed to secure employment but most importantly have a different approach and outlook on life.

How will you know if you have made this difference?

The number of graduates from the LSV course who have completed the boot camp and have secured full time employment.

What expertise does your organisation have in delivering similar projects?

The officers in the organization have successfully organised similar projects with respective not for profit and charitable organisations, including local church youth groups with a focus on health and fitness. These projects were limited in terms of fitness equipment required to effectively deliver a challenging and rewarding programme.
