Open Unconfirmed Meeting Minutes Kaipatiki Local Board, Wednesday 10 June 2015

 

The minutes of the Kaipātiki Local Board meeting held on Wednesday 10 June 2015 were confirmed at item 4 of this agenda.

 

 

13

Bike Park Facility Birkenhead Wharf

 

Roger Wilson and Marilyn Nicholls of Auckland Transport were in attendance to speak to the report.

 

 

MOVED by Chairperson K McIntyre, seconded by Member L Waugh:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)         notes that:

i)             Auckland Transport does not support removal or relocation of the bike park facility;

ii)            increasing cycle infrastructure is a key initiative in the Kaipātiki Local Board Plan.

iii)           there is currently no available budget to fund the removal of the bike park facility;

iv)           the cost of removing the bike shed is expected to be well in excess of the initial build cost of $60,000 and allocating funding to remove the shed would impact on the Board’s ability to support other community initiatives in Kaipātiki.

b)         agrees to participate in a community led working party to investigate ways to increase use and access by cycles, scooters and pedestrians to and from the wharf and associated Park facilities.

c)         nominates member Richard Hills as the lead Transport Portfolio holder to be the Kaipātiki Local Board representative on the working party with Member Lindsay Waugh as the alternative in the event that Member Hills cannot attend.

CARRIED

 

 

During discussion, under Standing Order 3.3.11, Member Grant Gillon was requested to apologise for the manner in which he addressed Auckland Transport staff. Member Gillon apologised.


 

 

MOVED by Member G Gillon, seconded by Member J Gillon:  

Member G Gillon moved an amendment by way of replacement to the original motion:

a)            recognises that it made an error when accepting Auckland Transport’s proposal for the bike cage at Birkenhead Wharf.

b)            notes that there have been numerous representations since its construction relating to safety concerns of fishers, and boaters and yacht club, waka ama, and Aratika and recreational users.

c)            notes that there has been minimal if any use of the cage since its construction.

d)            notes that this yet is another example of Auckland Transport’s value laden approach to transport which results in many high cost low use projects in this board area.

e)            requests that officers be requested to identify budget for the bike cage’s relocation.

f)             requests that a working party be established to look at alternative sites for the bike cage and also to increase cycle and scooter use.

g)            requests that Auckland Transport relocate the bike cage after the working party reports back.

h)            record the Boards disappointment that the Birkenhead Placemaking Group was not consulted in the preparation of this report
