Rodney Local Economic Development Action Plan

 

File No.: CP2015/09074

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek adoption of the local economic development (ED) action plan for Rodney and present proposals for funding consideration.  

Executive Summary 

2.       Local boards are in a unique position to understand their local economy and community, work with the local business community, facilitate growth in industries in which their area has a competitive advantage, and advocate or catalyse activities for local economic development.

3.       The Rodney local ED action plan has been developed with the participation of a range of stakeholders, who have identified a number of challenges and opportunities within the Rodney economy and helped shaped the actions in response.

4.       The committee has provided guidance and input in to the action plan, which is now presented for approval. 

5.       Business and community organisations have presented funding proposals and estimates to the local board for initiatives that include economic development benefits.  The initiatives cover visitor attraction and promotion, town centre security and improvements, and social enterprise. In addition to the outcomes and objectives of the local board plan, these requests can also be considered against the local ED action plan.

 

Recommendations

That the Rodney Local Board Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee:

a)      adopt the Rodney Local Economic Development Action Plan (April 2015).

b)      allocate the unspent budget of $35,705 (local job opportunities/skill development) and $39,116 (business improvement strategies in key towns) to:

 i. North West Business Improvement District visitor attraction promotion proposal. 

ii. Security cameras along Mahurangi Riverbank by Warkworth Area Business Association.

iii. Teaching kitchen in Te Whare Oranga ō Parakai.

iv. Assessment of legacy town centre plans that includes economic development impact.

 

Comments

6.       The development of a local ED action plan for Rodney was approved by the local board in August 2014 (Resolution number RD/2014/193).

7.       The development of the local ED action plan has used information from the Rodney ED overview, the results of business surveys in Wellsford, Snells Beach, Warkworth and the north-west, and research and strategies for the visitor economy Puhoi to Pakiri and north-west of Rodney.

8.       The Rodney local ED action plan provides a mechanism for the local board to work with organisations delivering economic development initiatives and the local business community. It has been developed in the context of the Rodney Local Board Plan (2014) and its outcome of ‘Local economies are strong and growing - Our local economy will strengthen and businesses will thrive through working together. A growing economy will provide more jobs for local people’.  The local board’s commitment to empowering communities will be the platform for achieving the action plan. 

9.       The following Auckland Council departments, teams and Council Controlled Organisations were involved in developing the local ED action plan: Auckland Council (Community Development Arts and Culture, Plans and Places, Local Board Services, Parks, Sports and Recreation, Te Waka Angamua), Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development (ATEED), Auckland Transport, and COMET.

10.     Stakeholders that provided input and feedback to the action plan included: North-West Business Improvement District (BID), Te Whare o Oranga o Parakai, Ministry of Education Youth Guarantee, Northland Inc, Te Hana Te Ao Marama Cultural Centre, Nga Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara, Warkworth BID establishment advisor, Ministry of Education, Mahurangi Technical Institute, AUT’s New Zealand Tourism Research Institute (NZTRI), North Tec and Springboard Trust. 

11.     A discussion about local economic development action plans was held with the mana whenua hui in November 2014.  Material was provided on the action plans to the Manuhiri Kaitiaki Charitable Trust. A meeting was held with representatives from Nga Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara and their feedback has been incorporated in to the action plan, including the opportunities to further strengthen a holistic relationship across the Auckland Council group.   

12.     The feedback from stakeholders has been positive and the action plan has been developed with the aim to capture the significant activity underway within local business communities.  Feedback included:

·    There is scope to strengthen linkages with Northland in the rural productive sectors and tourism (including the Twin Coast Discovery route).  There is also a common need to improve access to tertiary training in the two areas, with North Tec seeking to be more active in Rodney.

·    The changing landscape post-settlement and the strength of mana whenua commercial operations 

·    Unreliability of the existing broadband service in many areas

·    Lack of amenities to support the visitor economy in north-west Rodney

·    Poor accessibility in some areas due to lack of public transport, which impacts on business and employment opportunities

·    Burgeoning niche businesses in the food and beverage sector.

13.     As a result of input and feedback, the following minor amendments have been made to the action plan (see Attachment A) since December 2014.

14.     Action 1.1 & 5.2  – Inclusion of the aim to increase visitor stay and spend in north-west Rodney, as set out in the North West Rodney Visitor Strategy (2015) prepared by NZTRI. This can be a reflected as a key intent of the local board through its partnership with the North West BID and its engagement with other partners, including Ngati Whatua o Kaipara.

15.     Action 1.4 – Clarification of the action to reflect the local board’s goal that planning for the future urban zone in Silverdale West will be aligned with planning for Silverdale East/ town centre.

16.     Action 1.5 – New action stemming from the Henderson-Massey Local Board seeking to coordinate planning for growth at Westgate with Rodney and Upper Harbour local boards.

17.     Action 1.8 – New action reflecting the local board’s priority for advancing town centre/ village upgrades at Warkworth, Wellsford, Kumeū/Huapai Helensville and Te Hana. Scoping work on several projects is currently underway.

18.     Action 1.10 – New action, led by ATEED, to attract productive investment that creates business opportunities and new jobs in Rodney.

19.     Action 1.12 – Updated to reflect government announcements about broadband and activity currently underway to find out broadband quality of service issues from the community.

20.     Action 4.1 – New actions incorporating the following youth employment initiatives:

·    Jobfest taking place on 7 August 2015 at North Harbour and the opportunity for the local board to champion young job seekers and local businesses with jobs on offer to get involved.

·    Employer Pledge signed by local employers Wharehine, AWF Group and GJ Gardiner and the opportunity for the local board to influence other large local companies to also pledge their commitment to be quality youth employers.

21.     Action 5.4 New action to implement the recommendation of the North-West Rodney Visitor Strategy to strengthen the linkages between events and the visitor economy by requiring events that are funded by the Rodney Local Board to promote the local visitor offer.

22.     Action 6.3 New action reflecting input from Ngati Whatua o Kaipara regarding the request for an Auckland Council ‘case manager’ who would be their main point of contact day to day with the council and who would coordinate an holistic relationship between the Auckland Council group and Nga Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara across different projects and workstreams.  While this approach has wider council implications and is beyond the scope of just the local ED action plan, it is supported from an economic development perspective as it would provide for stronger partnerships with mana whenua, enhanced ability to deliver positive outcomes and be business-friendly.

Implementation of the Rodney Local Board Economic Development Action Plan

23.     There is unallocated operational 2014/2015 budget of $35,705 in the activity area of local job opportunities/skill development and $39,116 in business improvement strategies in key towns.  The local board has allocated some other remaining 2014/2015 operational budgets into a contestable walkways grant. 

24.     The local board has received several proposals for funding related to the local ED action plan, which are set out below.

25.     Implementation of the North West Visitor Strategy, the development of a teaching kitchen at Te Whare Oranga ō Parakai, and an assessment of town centre projects that includes potential economic impact have clear local economic development benefits and are therefore recommended for local board funding.  The local board may also wish to allocate funding for security cameras in Warkworth as this will allow for a previously-funded initiative to be completed.

North West BID visitor attraction promotion proposal 

26.     The North-West BID is seeking $57,478 from the local board for visitor attraction and promotion of the area (see North West BID request attached to this report, Attachment D). The visitor economy has huge potential in the Rodney area.  As evidenced by the NZTRI research and North West Rodney Visitor Strategy there is scope to collaboratively promote the north-west area and achieve increased visitor spend and lengthen visitor stay.  Visitors to the Puhoi to Pakiri area were revealed in 2011 to spend an average $100 per day, compared to the average 2014 visitor spend in north-west Rodney of $24.  Clearly, any funding provided should link with the aims of the strategy to increase visitor spend and lengthen visitor stay, build touring routes based on the area’s iconic attractions (such as Muriwai, wineries, Woodhill, Parakai pools and Riverhead) and develop cultural experiences.

27.     Implementation of the visitor strategy should benefit from the existence of the North-West  BID which already has the aim of business networking and general promotion of the area.  The BID is therefore well-placed, along with Ngati Whatua o Kaipara and tourism operators, to coordinate implementation of the visitor strategy across the wider Rodney north-west. This situation is in contrast to the east of Rodney, which lacked tourism business networks and therefore previous funding from the local board was provided to support the establishment of the network which has now grown to become the Matakana Coast Wine Country group

Teaching kitchen in Te Whare Oranga ō Parakai

28.     A proposal has been received from Te Whare Oranga ō Parakai for contribution to the fit out of the kitchen (see Attachment B).  The total cost of the kitchen equipment is estimated at $30,000.

29.     To maximise local economic development benefits of any local board funding, the focus of the kitchen would include the attainment of food handling certificates, establishment of food-based local enterprise and the potential to leverage visitor growth, for example by attracting visitors to food courses that use local produce.

Security cameras along Mahurangi Riverbank (Warkworth)

30.     Funding of $14,000 was previously allocated by the Rodney Local Board to Warkworth Area Business Association (WABA) for CCTV security cameras.  WABA has now reassessed its plans and is proposing to install four new cameras in the vicinity of the riverbank area and repurpose two other cameras in the town centre.  WABA is requesting an additional $6,768 (including GST) to carry out their revised plan (see Attachment C).

31.     Crime and safety did not emerge as a major issue in Warkworth in the business survey undertaken in 2014, with just four per cent of respondents identifying it as a business challenge.

32.     Advice on the proposal from staff in Parks, Sport and Recreation and Community Development and Safety concerns:

·    ownership and responsibility for ongoing costs - if the local board provided additional funding it could be on the basis that the cameras are owned by WABA, which will have responsibility for all ongoing costs associated with the camera system. If the council were to assume ownership, the network would be implemented under the council’s CCTV guidelines and the Rodney Local Board would be responsible for funding ongoing maintenance.

·    implementation of physical works - there are health and safety requirements which would need to be met for any physical works being carried out on parks land.

·    landowner approval - it is likely that the works would be considered as a complex land approval by council’s Parks team and a report would be presented to the Rodney Local Board for approval. This process would be in addition to any approvals required from private property owners.

33.     Since the letter dated 29 April 2014 (attachment C) from WABA, the association has confirmed that it will take ownership of the camera assets and be responsible for ongoing maintenance costs. Signage will need to be in place to notify people that cameras are operating in the area. The cost of signage has not been included in the budget prepared by WABA.

Assessment of legacy town centre plans

34.     At its 20 April 2015 meeting the local board agreed to request fee estimates from local providers to undertake an assessment of the town centre plans completed by the legacy Rodney District Council.  The assessment would review the projects within those documents and identify any further priority projects that should be brought to the local board for its future consideration (Resolution number RD/2015/50).

35.     It is recommended that the assessment of town centre projects include economic development impact as one of the assessment criteria. Initial fee estimates are between $8,000 to $10,000 so it is proposed that $10,000 be allocated to this assessment.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

36.     The Rodney Local Board has guided the development of the local ED action plan – local board members have been briefed at portfolio meetings and workshops were held with the Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee in December 2014 and February 2015, with member feedback incorporated into the action plan.

Māori impact statement

37.     The local ED action plan identifies opportunities to strengthen Māori enterprise within ATEED’s Māori economic growth programme and includes programmes to support skills development. ATEED is available to advise and support Māori cultural tourism initiatives.

38.     Actions within the local ED action plan that concern mana whenua have been based on mana whenua input.  

Implementation

39.     The aim is that the Local ED Action Plan will form the basis for developing a rolling three-yearly local economic development work programme for Rodney.

Comments

Update on Rodney Local Board’s Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF) Projects

3.       A reminder that the local board should now be identifying new project proposals for the LBTCF budgets allocated for the remainder of the term so that subsequent initial assessment, detailed design, consultation and statutory approvals (where required), and construction can be completed by 30 June 2016.

4.       As at 12 May 2015 the remaining LBTCF monies available to the Rodney Local Board was $509,616, comprising $369,261 which it may allocate, and $140,355 which it must allocate before 30 June 2016. Note: this does not include the $51,000 recently allocated to the construction of 20 car parks adjacent to Huapai Domain by Cabra Development.

5.       Construction of the following LBTCF projects identified by the Rodney Local Board has been completed:

·       Mountable kerb outside 336 Mahurangi East Road, Snells Beach (Project 118);

·       Footpath extension on Fordyce Road, Parakai (Project 174);

·       Extending the loose metal bridle trail on the northern side of Coatesville-Riverhead Highway from east of Glenmore Road to 264 Coatesville-Riverhead Highway (Project 179);

·       New footpath on Mahoenui Valley Road opposite the school to its intersection with Coatesville-Riverhead Highway (Project 180);

·       New footpath on Rodney Street, Wellsford (Project 190);

·       Construction of local access road improvements, 338 – 382 Main Road, Huapai (Project 175);

·       New footpath on the eastern side of Coatesville-Riverhead Highway from Elliot Street to the bridge (Project 177);

·       Installation of a seat in front of the property at 6 Alexander Road, Algies Bay (Project 294);

·       Project 205, a 1.8m wide footpath on Point Wells Road, from Waimanu Place to 30/32 Point Wells Road.

6.       Tenders were called for a second time for the construction of Projects 113, Puhoi Pedestrian Bridge, and 162, footpath on the eastern side of Puhoi Road in late March and closed on 17 April, with four companies submitting tenders for the work.

7.       Members were advised at the 11 May TPI workshop that, whilst the prices received during the second tender round were more competitive, the most competitive would still bring the cost of the projects to $255,000, leaving no contingency to cover unexpected occurrences.

8.       Following agreement by members at the workshop, the Chair and Deputy Chair of the TPI signed approval for a further allocation of $20,000 to the project under delegated authority granted by the Rodney Local Board (RD/2014/225) at its meeting on 13 October 2014, bringing the total funding allocated to $275,000.

9.       The contract has been awarded and construction is expected to begin in June.

10.     Members were advised of the firm cost estimate (FEC) for Project 161, a 160m long x 1.5m wide concrete path from the existing footpath at the intersection of Waitoki and Kahikatea Flat Roads to the driveway of 22 Waitoki Road, by email on 13 April 2015. The matter was then discussed at the TPI workshop on Monday, 20 April.

11.     At that workshop members indicated that, having considered the anticipated firm cost estimate provided of $138,000 and noted the increased cost due to the necessary property purchases, together with the probable time delays as a result of those negotiations, they no longer wished to proceed with the project.

12.     The Committee is requested to confirm this decision formally at this meeting.

13.     At the Committee’s meeting on 7 April 2015 it was resolved with respect to Project 163 - Oaia Road Footpath, Muriwai, that the Committee (RODTP/2015/4):

b)      approve construction of a 1.5m wide footpath to a length of 360m from the intersection of Waitea Road to the Muriwai Beach Domain Recreation Reserve, based a firm estimate of cost of $137,000.

14.     Tenders for the work closed on 30 April and construction will begin once the contract has been awarded.

15.     The local board allocated $135,000 to Project 116, Mahurangi East Road Footpath, based on a rough order cost provided in May 2013. Subsequent investigation established that the physical works were more likely to be in the vicinity of $260,000 for a 1.5m wide footpath. This did not include the cost for a guardrail, design, safety audit or AT staff time so the revised costing was more likely to be $260,000 - $300,000.

16.     At the 7 April 2015 TPI Committee meeting members were advised that a design for the slip repair works incorporating a 1.5m footpath had been completed but because of the steepness of the bank a small retaining wall was still required. The indicative costs for the footpath construction was $166,000 and approximately $38,000 had already been spent on the project, so the total cost would be in the region of $204,000, considerably less than the previous estimates of $280 – 300,000.  They were advised that savings would be made if the footpath works were carried out at the same time as the slip repair work, which the maintenance team hope to begin in September this year.

17.     The Committee therefore resolved to:

a)      support the further pricing of the Mahurangi East Road/Arabella Lane Local Board Transport Capital Fund Footpath Project 116 in conjunction with the slip repair work proposed to be undertaken in the 2015 calendar year.

18.     The maintenance team has received a price from its contractor, Downers (the slip repair and footpath construction will be carried out under the Area Maintenance Contract), that confirms the engineer’s estimate is valid, but a number of issues, including cut to waste volumes and the length of retaining wall required for the footpath, could increase this estimate. In light of this, the design engineer has recommended a contingency sum of 10% be set aside over and above the original engineer’s estimate to mitigate the risk.

19.     The engineer’s estimated construction cost for the local board element of this project was $166,000 so it is recommended that the local board set aside a further $16,600 contingency in addition to the indicative $204,000 noted at the 7 April 2015 TPI committee meeting, to cover any potential problems encountered during construction (note that some or all of this money may or may not be required). The cost to the local board will therefore be $220,600.

20.     If members confirm they are willing to proceed on this basis, AT’s maintenance team will submit the required consent applications and schedule the physical works to commence in October 2015.

21.     Detailed designs for projects 398, a footpath on Maude Street, Riverhead, and 399, a footpath on Great North Road, Riverhead, for which rough order costs of $145,000 and $321,000 respectively were provided, will be completed in June and firm estimates of cost for these will then be made available. Providing the local board confirms its desire to proceed with these projects, construction will begin in September. A copy of the memorandum outlining the projects is attached as Attachment A to this report.

22.     Background to a proposal by Cabra Development that it construct an additional twenty car parks to improve the new road frontage between Huapai Reserve and the adjacent housing development was presented to the Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee Workshop on 18 May 2015.

23.     As a consequence of there being no funding available from the Auckland Council Parks budgets to support the proposal, the local board requested advice from AT as to whether the initiative would attract LBTCF monies.

24.     AT advised that the proposal meets LBTCF criteria but requested a resolution from the local board as evidence that it agrees to the funding being allocated, plus a further $1,000 to cover Auckland Transport’s procurement and administrative costs. This was granted on 18 May 2015 and AT staff are now establishing a mechanism for the transfer of the $51,000 required form the local board’s TCF and will work with Cabra Development to ensure delivery of the car parks to the required standards.

 

Consultations

25.     Documentation explaining the proposed installation of a bike rack at 62 Commercial Road, Helensville, was sent to local board members on 2 April 2015 with a request for response no later than 17 April 2015. Member Colville asked on 9 April whether a bike rack could also be installed at Wellsford Library. No objections were received to the proposal from the local board.

26.     Documentation explaining a proposal to install guardrails outside the properties at 554, 556 and 537 Waitakere Road, Taupaki, was forwarded to members on 2 April with a request for response no later than 20 April 2015. The proposed scope of works included the construction of two new guardrails, the first between the vehicle entrances to 554 and Number 556 Waitakere Road, the second opposite the first and along the frontage of 537 Waitakere Road. No objections were received to the proposals from the local board.

27.     Members were asked to provide feedback on a number of footpath schemes that had been prioritised to progress to investigation and design in anticipation of construction budget being made available in future by 22 April. It was noted that, because of a limited timeframe and available resources, only some of the schemes may be investigated and designed this financial year. Member Pirrie advised his full support on 13 April. No objections to the proposals were received from the local board.

28.     Members were asked to provide feedback on a number of footpath schemes that had been prioritised to progress to investigation and design in anticipation of construction budget being made available in future by 22 April. It was noted that, because of a limited timeframe and available resources, only some of the schemes may be investigated and designed this financial year. Member Pirrie advised his full support on 13 April. No objections to the proposals were received from the local board.

29.     The South Head / Green / Parkhurst Roads intersection, Parakai has been identified as one of the high risk intersections in Auckland, dominated by loss of control crashes.  A proposal to improve and replace signage at the bend and carry out minor road marking changes was forwarded to members on 15 May 2015 with a request for responses no later than 29 May 2015.

30.     Members were advised of a proposal to improve safety at a location on Amreins Road, Taupaki, by the installation of no overtaking lines between 309 and 327 Amreins Road, to warn approaching motorists of the restricted visibility ahead and enable them to stay within the traffic lane, on 15 May 2015, and requested to provide comments no later than 29 May 2015.

Status

 

1

Leigh Road, Big Omaha

Follow up questions after repairs on Leigh Road, Big Omaha.

Following up on work carried out in 2014 on Leigh Road, on a section approximately 2 kms in length near 1053 Leigh Road, and another series of patches near 738 Leigh Road, on 21 January 2015 Member Sayers asked why the quality of the repair was so poor, whether the repairs met Auckland Transport's minimum standard and what this was, and whether the contractor could be held accountable to repeat the work to a higher quality at no additional cost to AT or AC. A copy of a response provided to Member Sayers under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act was forwarded to members on 1 April 2015.

 

2

Albert Road, Warkworth

Request for comment following seal remediation work carried out on Albert Road, Warkworth.

Following recent seal remediation works on Albert Road, Warkworth, on 27 January 2015 Member Garner requested comment and action on debris and sediment which had flowed down the drive of the property opposite the area remediated, at the location of the intersection with Lyttle lane. Member Garner expressed concern that as the new seal is level with (or above) the level of the drive, water flowing down this drive off the road may become an issue. He asked about the possibility of having kerb and channel installed along the section which has the deep open drain (from Lyttle Lane to the existing footpath) to aid the stormwater issues in this area. Members were advised  on 2 March 2015 that AT’s contractor for the work will follow the issue up with the property owner, noting that, while the seal level is slightly above the concrete channel, the lip of the concrete driveway was not altered by the work and this controls water level past the driveway. It was also noted that the driveway has no cut off and falls away from the road and that there are no current plans to extend the kerb and channel at this location. Member Garner later advised that there was significant stormwater runoff from the road and properties on Lyttle Lane, and that there is regularly a large flow of water off the road into the drain and onto the property below. He also noted that the wide, deep open drain remains a safety concern, particularly in the event of heavy rain and any form of failure to the stormwater system in Lyttle Lane. In a further response, Member Garner was advised on 23 March that the engineers were prepared to install a small bund along the entrance to the property to deflect stormwater run-off to the lower side of the driveway entrance but, because of the topography of the area, there was little else that would address the situation. Awaiting a response from Member Garner.

 

3

Mansel Drive, Warkworth

Request for NSAAT restrictions and review of the painted median on Mansel Drive, Warkworth.

Member Garner asked on 29 January 2015 on behalf of the residents' committee at the Summerset retirement village, Warkworth, that NSAAT restrictions be implemented on Mansel Drive from the entrance to the village extending approximately 3 car lengths toward Woodcocks Road, to improve vision for vehicles exiting the village. Member Garner also asked that the painted median through the middle of Mansel Drive also be reviewed as he considered much of the current road marking to be superfluous. On 2 March 2015 members were advised that an initial investigation had been carried out but that further detailed investigation was required to ensure a comprehensive review. The outcome of this assessment will be made available in June 2015. Concerns raised by Member Houlbrooke about visibility on Mansel Drive were also forwarded to the engineers for inclusion in the more detailed investigation. Outcome of detailed investigation available in June.

Kaipara Portage Road, Riverhead

Queries about development on Kaipara Portage Road, Riverhead.

On 12 February 2015 Member Pirrie asked for comment on dust issues and problems with water tanks on Kaipara Portage Road; queried when the road surface was going to be sorted out; why developers were required to create footpaths only outside their development; what was to be done to link all the footpaths / when will this happen; and who in AC/AT monitors the development in terms of mitigating or eliminating the effects on existing residents. Further to an earlier response, Members were advised on 8 April that the subdivision had resource consent conditions imposed that stated that Kaipara Portage Road fronting several lots of the development would be upgraded to Council’s urban sealed standards.  This condition was intended to ensure that the side of the road fronting the development was upgraded and that AT would work with the developer to upgrade the other side of the road as it would not be practical for the developer to upgrade half the width of the road for that short length, their only responsibility. However4, AT did not have the budget to undertake the upgrading necessary at the time so it was agreed that the developer would provide kerb and channel on the southern side of the road in front of their site and that AT would continue to maintain the current road surface until the budget was available to upgrade the entire length and width of the road. Investigations were underway into the provision of a footpath linking the development with the township through the new footpath programme and the local board had also requested costings for two footpaths in the area. Members were advised that, whilst the road was in need of a full rehabilitation, doing so at this time would be wasteful, given the continuing damage from trucks associated with the development. By way of mitigation, the surface deterioration of the 700m section in front of the properties at 31 – 65 Kaipara Portage Road would be improved temporarily by the application of a temporary holding seal. This is the most cost effective way of providing a good running surface until it is determined when best to rehabilitate the road. Other issues, such as stormwater reticulation and the installation of kerb/channel and footpath on the northern side of the road opposite the new subdivision would also be investigated at that time; however, these are capital works items and are currently subject to the current constrained financial environment. Once the temporary surface has been laid staff will monitor speeds and, if required, barriers to narrow the road and/or speed humps may be installed.

417 Motutara Road, Muriwai

Bus shelter at 417 Motutara Road, Muriwai.

Member Pirrie asked on 12 February 2014 when the bus shelter at 417 Motutara Road, Muriwai, which blew over in a storm, will be replaced. On 1 April members were advised that the shelter was not an AT asset and that it may have been installed by the Ministry of Education or possibly TotalSpan. A replacement shelter could therefore be requested through TotalSpan, which has a community project specifically for rural shelters. Note: A further request was made by Member Pirrie at the Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee workshop on 11 May 2015 as to whether AT held any old shelters that were surplus to requirement. Member Pirrie was advised on 14 May that AT held no surplus shelters.

 

6

1040 Coatesville-Riverhead Highway

Request for an existing crossing point outside 1040 Coatesville-Riverhead Highway, Riverhead to be upgraded to a zebra crossing.

Member Pirrie requested an investigation into the possible upgrading of the existing crossing facility at 1040 Coatesville Riverhead Highway (near the shops) to a zebra crossing, given the ongoing development in the area and the need for children to safely cross Coatesville-Riverhead Highway to go to school. Following an earlier interim response, on 27 March 2015 members were advised that AT had completed pedestrian surveys in June 2014 which had determined that the existing pedestrian crossing demand did not meet the criteria for an upgrade at this stage. However, with the change in speed limit and proposed developments in the Riverhead Township, the likelihood of a future increase in pedestrian crossing demand at this kea crossing is possible. AT will therefore monitor the situation and carry out further investigations in 2016 in order to understand the increase in pedestrian volumes and determine the best way forward.

 

7

Taupaki Road, Taupaki

Temporary fencing and road slumping on Taupaki Road, Taupaki.

On 26 February 2015 Member Flaunty asked the reasoning behind a temporary fence that has been in place at the bridge located outside the property at 1 Taupaki Road, Taupaki, requesting details as to if and when there is a plan to install permanent fencing. Member Flaunty also advised that, in generally the same vicinity, closer to the properties at 26/32 and 29/31 Taupaki Road, the road had dropped (slumped), asking that the area be remediated. On 20 March members were advised that installation of a new fence will be added to the programme. Member Flaunty clarified the location of the slumping on 12 May, indicating that this was on the railway crossing. Slumping under investigation by Road Corridor Maintenance staff.

 

8

Warkworth general

Mobility scooter crossings in the Warkworth area.

Member Houlbrooke forwarded a resident's concerns about hazards for those using mobility scooters in Warkworth on 9 March 2015.  On 23 April Member Houlbrooke was advised that an AT engineer had visited the site and the resident requesting the improvements. Further detailed investigation will now be undertaken and the local board will be provided with the outcome and recommendations by the end of July 2015. With Road Corridor Maintenance for response.

 

9

Matakana Road, Matakana

Request for compensation to vehicle damaged by signage on Matakana Road, Matakana.

On 17 March 2014 Local Board staff forwarded a request from the driver of a vehicle allegedly damaged by AT signage left in a car parking space on Matakana Road, Matakana. Members were advised on 10 April that the request for compensation had been considered but regretfully declined.  They were advised that the sign base and sign was a footpath marker for the adjacent pedestrian crossing and that it appeared in this case that the sign had been struck or maliciously damaged. AT has no record of any other complaints of a similar nature being reported prior to receiving this complaint and as such, has no liability for the alleged damage to the vehicle; AT is only liable in the event that staff were aware that there was a fault that required maintenance and failed to act promptly to undertake a repair. AT is therefore unable to consider that the alleged vehicle damage arose from its negligence.

 

10

Motutara Road, Muriwai.

Request for signage for rural fire station on Motutara Road, Muriwai.

Member Pirrie asked on 17 March 2015 for the installation of appropriate signage for the fire station located at 341 Motutara Road, the sign to be installed in the vicinity of 359/365 Motutara Road (Jack Butt Lane end), where there is a sharp corner. Volunteer fire fighters indicate that they take drivers unawares when driving out of the Muriwai Rural Fire station. On 27 March members were advised that a fire station warning sign will be installed on the existing utility pole outside 359/365 Motutara Road by mid - end of May 2015.

 

11

Ararimu Valley Road, Ararimu Valley

Request for safety review of Ararimu Valley Road, Ararimu Valley.

Following a recent serious accident on Ararimu Valley Road, Ararimu Valley, on 17 March 2015 Chair Brenda Steele asked that a review of this metal road in terms of its safety be undertaken so that sufficient warning signage, edge markers etc. can be installed. Members were advised on 1 May that AT staff had met with the resident who raised these concerns approximately a year ago and a safety assessment at this corner on Ararimu Valley Road was undertaken as a result. As a consequence of the review, new signage has been installed to provide additional warning / guidance for drivers at this corner. The possibility of installing a barrier at the bottom of the corner had been investigated; however, due to the low traffic volume and the available budget, installation could not be justified at this stage.  In response to the request that Ararimu be sealed, members were advised that the road does not carry sufficient traffic volume to be sealed under the current 10 year Regional Land Transport Plan budget, when prioritised against the 646 unsealed roads across the Auckland Region.

 

12

330 – 380 Main Road, Huapai

Repairs to edge seal requested opposite 330 – 380 Main Road, Huapai.

Member Grace asked on 18 March 2015 that repairs be carried out to the edge of the tar seal on the opposite side from the houses on the slip lane at 330 – 380 Main Road, Huapai. On 30 April members were advised that the repairs would be actioned in May.

 

13

Omaha Valley Road, Big Omaha

Issues related to truck movements on Omaha Valley Road, Big Omaha.

Member Sayers referred a number of queries related to the resource consent for the Omaha Valley Quarry (Matakana Metal Supplies Limited) on 22 March 2015. On 7 May members were forwarded a response to similar issues raised with Member Houlbrooke (CAS-563013-G8S2T4) indicating that traffic counts will be undertaken on Omaha Valley Road to gather data on the number and speed of cars and trucks using the road which will then be passed to Auckland Council's monitoring and compliance staff. Note: The outcome of the investigation and any resulting   recommendations will be made available in July.

 

14

Definition and information request

Request for definition of 'rural' and advice about subsidies for rural roads.

On 2 April 2015 Member Beth Houlbrooke asked on behalf of the Warkworth Area Liaison Group for a definition for ‘rural’ road and advice as to whether NZTA still provides a 52% subsidy towards these. In response to a further query, members were advised on 7 May with respect to the definition of ‘berm’, this is the area of grass adjacent to the road carriageway and/or footpath but within the area of the Legal Road. With regard to the definition for ‘rural’ and the NZTA subsidy provided, on 11 May members were advised that NZTA distinguishes urban roads from rural roads by speed limit. Roads with a speed limit of greater than 70Km/hour are considered rural. NZTA does fund works to be carried out on rural roads; from July this will be at 51% of the cost of the works carried out. However in practice, NZTA can only afford to subsidise the most economically viable improvement and renewal projects carried out in the region, which tend to be on the roads which are most heavily trafficked, and these tend to be in urban areas. NZTA also funds maintenance (regrading, filling potholes etc.) and operations (emptying gullies) on roads in rural areas.

 

15

Ararimu Valley Road, Helensville and Riverhead

Request for speed reduction on Ararimu Valley Road, Helensville and Riverhead.

At the Rodney Local Board’s Transport, Planning and Infrastructure meeting on 7 April 2015 Member Grace asked that the speed limit on Ararimu Valley Road be reduced to a maximum of 80km/h for its entire length. On 28 April members were reminded that AT sets speed limits in accordance with the requirements of the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2003, which considers a large number of factors; however, the outcome is largely driven by the level of roadside development. In the case of Ararimu Valley Road, Helensville, where the surrounding land use is forest on the eastern side and predominantly farm land with a few houses fronting to the road on the western side, the rural open road speed limit of 100km/h is relevant and it is therefore not possible to lower the existing speed limit at this stage. It is noted that the part of Old North Road adjacent to the southern end of Ararimu Valley Road has a similar level of roadside development and has recently had its speed limit lowered to 80km/h, but this is an exceptional case where the lower speed limit was imposed due to the high number of crashes involving deaths or serious injuries occurring on this length of road.

 

16

Goat Island, Leigh

Request for further information about signage requested for the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre, Leigh.

Member Sayers forwarded a series of questions relating to a previous application for signage for the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre, Leigh, on 15 April 2015. On 29 April members were advised that signage currently in place was installed by Rodney District Council; however, this is under investigation with a view to ensuring that it complies with the intent of AT’s signage policy to rationalise destinations and reduce signage clutter. The Marine Discovery Centre may however be signed by a general interest sign, paid for by the Marine Centre, and installed with the existing signage. While only one sign is permitted under the policy, the Marine Centre is entitled to install a sign on private property with the land owner's consent, though if such signage is over a certain size, resource consent may be required from Auckland Council.

 

17

Haruru Road, Makarau

Queries over methodology used for traffic counts taken on Haruru Road, Makarau.

Member Sayers forwarded an email from a Haruru Road resident on 15 April 2015 in which comments questioning the methodology used by AT for traffic counts were made. On 22 April members were forwarded a response from AT’s Capital Programme Manager that indicated AT is taking a strategic approach to collecting traffic count information on Haruru Road and the wider road network. Since meeting the Haruru Road Action Group two additional special traffic counts had been commissioned for the unsealed part of Haruru Road. AT also requested a recount on the sealed road end previously counted, as this enables historic trends within a locality to be understood over time, in the context of the wider sealed and unsealed road network. Some Roads have a significant seasonal variance and the plan for Haruru Road is therefore to commission future traffic counts on both the sealed and unsealed parts of Haruru Road.

 

18

12 Webber Road, Mairetahi

Request for clearing of stormwater drains on Webber Road, Mairetahi.

Local Board staff forwarded a request from the residents of 12 Webber Road, Mairetahi, just off South Head Road, who advised that water and debris are sheeting across the road and onto their property because of the blocked drains on the opposite side of the road. Forwarded to Road Corridor Maintenance for investigation.

 

19

Broadlands Drive, Omaha

Closure of fishing platform on bridge on Broadlands Drive, Omaha.

Members were advised on 1 May 2015 that a recent inspection had revealed severe corrosion to the bolt heads anchoring the fishing platform on Broadlands Bridge (Broadlands Drive, Omaha) to the concrete kerb, leaving the platform structurally deficient and therefore dangerous. As a result, the platform was closed and a feasibility report to determine the possible options (replace or remove) is being carried out as fixing the platform will probably not be economical due to the nature of its construction and rapid deterioration. Due to the recent installation of a cycleway/footpath bridge on the northern side of Broadlands Bridge, there is a question as to whether it is necessary to commit potentially over $100,000 to replace a platform that may not be used very much so members were asked for their thoughts as to whether they would be willing to accept the closure of the platform. Members Houlbrooke, Flaunty and Garner indicated that the community was in favour of retaining the structure. A Senior Asset Engineer from AT’s Asset Quality Assurance Team discussed the issue with the TPI Committee at a workshop on 11 May 2015, assuring Members that the corroded bolts would be replaced and the structure made safe.

 

20

Rodney General

Query regarding unnecessary use of ratepayer funding.

On 6 May 2015 Member Sayers asked why a full page advertisement about the train schedule had appeared in the Rodney Times on 5 February, when there isn’t a train service to Rodney. Referred to PT

 

21

272 Amreins Road, Taupaki

Road edge broken away opposite 272 Amreins Road, Taupaki.

Member Flaunty advised on 12 May 2014 that the road edge opposite No. 272 Amreins Road in Taupaki had broken away so that cars needed to move across the centre line to avoid the broken area, causing a dangerous situation. Referred to Road Corridor Maintenance

 

22

Motutara Road, Muriwai

Site visit to Motutara Road, Muriwai.

During a site visit to Motutara Road, Muriwai, on 17 March 2015, AT staff undertook to pursue traffic volume and speed counts to determine what the 85th percentile is between the repositioned speed signs and the Muriwai/Motutara/Oaia Road junction; investigate the possibility of funding threshold treatment from AT’s safety budget; check the origin of the destination sign with Road Corridor Maintenance staff and have this repositioned so that it doesn’t obstruct the repositioned speed sign; investigate more appropriate direction signage indicating Muriwai Beach etc.; arrange for a “To Jack Butt Lane” sign to be positioned on the pole located on the corner of Motutara Road/Waitea Lane, i.e. opposite the entrance to Jack Butt Lane; and review the number of signs on the sign post at this intersection. Under investigation by Traffic Operations staff

Comments

Significant activities during the period under review

Investment and Development

1.   SMART (formerly SWAMMCP)

Investigation into protecting a rail (rapid transit) corridor from Onehunga to the Auckland airport then connecting back to the main trunk line at Puhinui, forming a rail loop.  NZTA and AT have completed the design work on the Kirkbride Interchange, which is now future proofed for rail.  The remaining SH20A corridor has also been re-assessed for rail, taking into account the improvements NZTA is proposing.  Work is also continuing on updating the business case for the project.

 

PT Development

2.   Otahuhu Bus Rail Interchange

Detailed design completion is expected in April/May 2015. Site pre-loading and rail platform enabling works are now underway.  The signal box will be lifted off the rail platform during Queen’s Birthday Block of Line. Main works are due to commence in July 2015 and scheduled for completion in March 2016 (subject to funding availability).  Go-live date for Interchange depends on the South Public Transport Operating Model Network roll-out, currently scheduled for May 2016.

 

3.   Half Moon Bay Ferry Upgrade

The pontoon and gangway contract has been awarded for completion of fabrication by the end of June 2015.  Design of the wharf is on-going in readiness for consent submission to Auckland Council mid-May 2015.

 

4.   City Rail Link

Enabling Works Package: Phase 1 Early Contractor Involvement design service contracts 1 and 2 awarded.  Construction is scheduled to commence early 2016.

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

 

5.   EMU Procurement

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

6.   Public Transport overall

There has been another big jump in 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.

 

7.   Rail Improvements

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 assumed to be because of the enhanced travel experience and additional capacity provided by the new electric trains, together with greater service frequency introduced over recent years.

AT 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.

 

8.   Bus Improvements

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 totaled 5.4 million trips, up 5% on an annual basis.

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, together with the introduction of double decker buses on a number of routes.  New network designs will also be introduced later this year.

 

Road Design and Development

9.   Te Atatu Road Improvements

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

 

10. Albany Highway

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 for 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.

 

11. Lincoln Road Improvements

The project involves widening Lincoln Road between Te Pai Place and the 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 Auckland Council Parks and Planning staff to determine with best layout for the road access for the properties between Daytona Reserve and Lincoln Road.

 

12. Mill Road Improvements

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.

 

13. Cycle Initiatives

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

14. Road Safety

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, were undertaken at Auckland Council Movies in the Park, NRL Auckland Nines, Kumeu A&P Show and Pasifika.

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.

 

15. Safer Communities and Schools Travelwise programme

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 develop a successful Travelwise campaign for their school community.  Students participated in an AT Metro public transport challenge, working in teams to develop and present a road safety campaign that they would deliver in their school.

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.

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

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

 

16. Travel Demand

Auckland Council and AT have jointly developed a business action plan for the Auckland Council Travel Plan, 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.

 

17. Walk 2 Work Day

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, the Sunnynook and Smales Farm bus stations.

 

Road Corridor Delivery

18. Overview

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 modeling which support the decision making process around the management of our roading assets.

 

19. January – March Quarter key highlights

The Road Corridor Delivery Team has 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 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

File No.: CP2015/09593

 

  

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is for the Rodney Local Board to acknowledge the urgent decision made with regard to the approval of the re-alignment of a dual footpath/cycleway, to form part of the Huapai Recreation Reserve Perimetar path, and the allocation of $51,000 from the Rodney Local Board’s Auckland Transport Capital Fund.

Executive Summary

2.       The allocation of the $51,000 from the Rodney Local Board’s Auckland Transport Capital Fund comprises of $50,000 for the construction of twenty (20) additional car parks including bollards by Cabra Development, on the new road frontage between Huapai Reserve and the adjacent housing development, and $1,000 for Auckland Transport’s administrative costs.

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney Local Board Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee:

a)      acknowledge the decision made under urgency on 20 May 2015, to approve the re-alignment of a dual footpath/cycleway, to form part of the Huapai Recreation Reserve Perimetar path, and the allocation of $51,000 from the local board’s Auckland Transport Local Board Transport Capital Fund, comprising of $50,000 for the construction by Cabra Development of twenty (20) additional car parks including bollards, on the new road frontage between Huapai Reserve and the adjacent housing development, and $1,000 for Auckland Transport’s administrative costs.

New Road Name - Te Whau Lane

 

File No.: CP2015/09686

 

  

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek the Rodney Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee’s approval for a new road name in an eight residential lot subdivision off Foster Crescent, Snells Beach.

Executive Summary

2.       A rule from the LINZ standards regarding addressing of properties with more than five sites being accessed by right of way or joint owned access lot required the applicant to suggest to council a name for the right of way within the subdivision which will remain in private ownership.

3.       The applicant wishes to name the access Te Whau Lane.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney Local Board Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee:

a)      approve the new right of way road name under section 319(j) of the Local Government Act 1974 of Te Whau Lane off Foster Crescent, Snells Beach, council reference R-57552.

 

 

Comments

4.       The applicant is Ian Julian, the site address is off Foster Crescent, Snells Beach and the Council Reference: R-57552

5.       This 8 lot, low intensity residential subdivision, was granted in 2012, and was carried out in stages. On completion of the subdivision addresses were allocated to the new lots. As this right of way runs off from the start of Foster Crescent the numbers allocated were 1A to 1D Foster Crescent. When this information reached Linz they said it must be changed as the distance from the new lots to the existing number 1 was far too great. There are currently only four users of the right of way but it is likely that more users will be added to it over time.

6.       Number 1D has recently been sold but nothing built on it yet. These owners are fully informed on this action and are agreeable to a new road name.

7.       Following consultation with Ngati Manuhiri the applicant has considered names for the right of way. As the property extends down to an inlet of the Mahurangi Harbour named Te Whau Creek and the applicant has been marketing the property as Te Whau Estates he has settled on Te Whau Lane. In Maori, ‘Whau’ is a native corkwood type tree, and Ngati Manuhiri has no issues with using this name.

8.       LINZ confirms that there are no similar road names in the area.

 

 

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

9.       A decision is sought from the Rodney Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee to approve the new road name.

Māori impact statement

10.     The applicant consulted with Ngati Manuhiri, who confirmed Te Whau Lane as a suitable name for the new right of way.

Implementation

11.     If and when the name is approved the developer will be advised and they are responsible for erecting the new road name signs.

New Road Name - Myra Evelyn Grove and Oak Valley

 

File No.: CP2015/09691

 

  

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek the Rodney Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee’s approval for two new road names for a subdivision at 41 Durey Road, Dairy Flat.

Executive Summary

2.       The applicant wishes to name the road to vest as “Oak Valley Road” and the joint owned access lot as “Myra Evelyn Grove”.

 

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney Local Board Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee:

a)      approve the new road name under section 319(j) of the Local Government Act 1974 of “Oak Valley Road” and approve the name of the joint owned access lot as “Myra Evelyn Grove” at the Durey Road subdivision at Dairy Flat, council reference R-56746A.

 

 

Comments

3.       The applicant is Phil Bayly, the site address: 41 Durey Road, Dairy Flat and the Council Reference: R-56746A

4.       This 36 lot subdivision was approved in 2014. The applicant and his family have owned and farmed the land for 75 years. Phil Bayly’s mother’s name was Myra Evelyn Bradbury and she lived in the Silverdale – Dairy Flat area all her life. She was a pharmacist in Orewa and was married to Charlie Bayly. Myra died in 1973 and Charlie is now 92 and still lives at Number 11 Durey Road in the old farmhouse. He never remarried.

5.       The naming of “Myra Evelyn Grove” means a lot to Charlie and Phil, and “Grove” is appropriate because the berms of the joint owned access lot are planted out with specimen oaks.

6.       An alternative name is “Myra Grove”, for the same reasons. However, the applicant’s first choice was “Bradbury Grove” but Linz rejected this because of Bradbury Road in Howick.

7.       The applicant proposes “Oak Valley Road” for the road to vest as the road passes through a valley and also has specimen oaks planted along the grassed berms. An alternative name is Oak Vale Road for similar reasons.

8.       The applicant has obtained verbal approval from Ngati Whatua o Kaipara, but although applying two months ago has not received a written approval. Confirmation of uniqueness and appropriateness from Linz has been received.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

9.       A decision is sought from the Rodney Transport, Planning and Infrastructure Committee to approve the two new road names.

Māori impact statement

10.     The applicant has Ngati Whatua o Kaipara approval of the proposed road names.

Implementation

11.     Land Information New Zealand confirms the names and types are acceptable.

12.     If and when the name is approved the developer will be advised and they are responsible for erecting the new road name sign.
