Comments

6.       The CDAC work programme for 2015/2016 has been developed using a co-ordinated departmental approach. Each CDAC unit has aligned their projects and initiatives to the Auckland Plan directives and the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board plan 2014 – 2017.

7.       The CDAC work programmes align to the following 2014 – 2017 Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Plan priorities:

·    a place where communities thrive and belong

·    a range of facilities to meet diverse needs

·    a strong local economy

·    Mangere-Otahuhu is the heart of Maori and Pasifika arts and culture.

8.       The CDAC work programme 2015/2016 for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board includes the following areas of activity:

·    Community Development and Safety: These projects and programmes aim to deliver a range of social outcomes for local residents and include supporting local town centre ambassador programmes, CCTV and safety initiatves, youth development activities, capacity building project and developing community gardens.

·    Arts and Culture: This includes the Otahuhu Recreation Centre and Library art integration project, engaging and arts broker to support and delivery community arts programmes, Southside Arts Festival 2015, providing Metro Theatre and Mangere Arts Centre for hire, and providing a range of exhibitions and public programming across the local area.

·    Events: This work programme includes a range of community events such as ANZAC day, volunteer appreciation awards and citizenship ceremonies as well as delivering an arts and culture signature event.

·    Community Facilities: This includes the provision of social housing, community facilities and their promotion, community leasing, administering funding for community-led centres, and supporting community-led houses to connect and deliver to local board work outcomes.

9.       The work programme includes scoped initiatives, the allocation of budgets and established timelines. A workshop was held with the local board and CDAC staff on 22 April, to ensure activities align with the local board priorities and meet the needs of the Mangere-Otahuhu community.

10.     CDAC’s Community Development and Safety (CDS) unit will operationalise the Empowered Communities Approach, which is part of the 2015/2016 Long-Term Plan approved on 8 May 2015 (GB/2015/31).   Broadly speaking, the changes proposed to the community development function are:

·        move away from direct delivery (and therefore save overheads) and fund community groups to deliver more

·        for local boards to play a much more active role by allocating more funding through them

·        transition delivery to a more empowered communities approach.

11.     The Empowered Communities Approach model was considered by the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee at its meeting on 4 June.  This report recommends that the work programme be adopted based on current arrangements, noting that FY 2015/2016 will be a transition year for CDS.

12.     Local Boards are requested to approve the CDAC work programme for 2015/2016. CDAC staff will continue to work with relevant portfolio holders and the local board to ensure these projects are delivered and evaluated. Portfolio holders and the local board will also be consulted on the prioritisation of the community facilities renewal projects and community leases.

Consideration

Local board views and implications

13.     The draft 2015/2016 work programme was considered by the local board at a workshop on 22 April 2015. The views expressed by local board members are reflected in Attachment A.

Maori impact statement

14.     Improving Maori outcomes is a priority for the region. One of the Auckland Plan targets is to increase targeted support to Maori community development projects. The CDAC work programme aims to improve well-being among Maori living in the local board area. The focus of this CDAC work programme is to support Maori targeted initiatives.

Implementation

15.     CDAC staff will continue to meet with portfolio holders to provide updates on the work programme and ensure it is progressed in a timely way. The CDAC work programme will be implemented within the annual plan 2015/2016 budget and reported on through the quarterly reporting process.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 July 2015

 

 





Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 July 2015

 

 

New Road Name Approval for the residential subdivision by Lundo Holdings Ltd at 25 Korimako Avenue, Mangere

 

File No.: CP2015/12651

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is to seek approval from the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board, for a new road name for an access lot created by way of subdivision at 25 Korimako Avenue, Mangere.

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 ‘Koko Mews’ (applicant’s preferred road name) and ‘Tiotio Place’ were determined to meet the road naming policy criteria. 

4.       Local iwi groups were consulted and of the thirteen relevant iwi groups, Te Kawerau indicated their support of the proposed road names while Te Akitai Waiohua provided three additional recommendations.

5.       The names ‘Koko Mews’ and ‘Tiotio Place’, proposed by the Applicant, are recommended for approval by the Local Board.   

 

Recommendation/s

That the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board, pursuant to section 319(1)(j) of the Local Government Act 1974, considers for the approval, the road name ‘Koko Mews’, proposed by the Applicant, for the new access lot created by way of subdivision at (25 Korimako Avenue, Mangere) while noting that ‘Tiotio Place’, also meets the road naming criteria.

 

 

Comments

6.       The Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines allowed that where a new access lot needs to be named as a result of a subdivision or development because it is serving twelve residential allotments, the subdivider/developer shall be given the opportunity of suggesting their preferred road names for Council’s approval.

7.       The residential subdivision will be serviced by one new access lot that will come off Korimako Avenue. The access lot will serve twelve of the sixteen proposed residential properties, each having one-twelfth share ownership of the access lot. ‘Korimako’ is a New Zealand bellbird. As such, the three road names proposed by the applicant (‘Koko Mews’, ‘Tiotio Place’ and ‘Tauhou Close’) will continue this theme. Te Akitai Waiohua has recommended three additional names that the applicant has agreed to put forward for consideration by the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board.

The Applicant has proposed the following names for consideration for the access lot created as part of the development at 25 Korimako Avenue, Mangere. 

 

 

 

 

 

Preference

Proposed New Road Name

Meaning

Preferred Name

Koko Mews

Known as a Tui or Parson bird. A songbird that imitates other bird calls and has glossy, black plumage and two white tufts at the throat.

1st Alternative

Tiotio Place

Maori for the cry or call of a bird.

2nd Alternative

Tauhou Close

Known as the Waxeye or Silvereye. A small, common, green bird with a conspicuous white eye-ring, olive-green head and upperparts, a grey back and creamy-white underparts with pinkish-brown flanks.

3rd Alternative

Te Ararata Mews

Recommended by Te Akitai Waiohua. Commonly known as “Black Bridge”. Original name for the Mangere Creek.

4th Alternative

Tomonga Close

Recommended by Te Akitai Waiohua. Maori word for “inlet”. The head of the inlet of Te Ararata was within close proximity to Hinau Road and Molesworth Place.

5th Alternative

Repo Place

Recommended by Te Akitai Waiohua. Maori word for “wetland”. Te Ararata adjoined the district’s largest wetland, which extended over Bader Drive.

 

Access Lot to be named

 

Figure One: Location and Layout of new Road

 

 

Decision Making

8.       The Auckland Council, by way of the Auckland Council Long Term Plan (2012 - 2022), allocated the responsibility for the naming of new roads, pursuant to section 319(1)(j) of the Local Government Act 1974, to Local Boards.

Assessment

9.       The Applicant’s proposed road names have been assessed against the criteria set out in the Auckland Council road naming guidelines.

10.     Of the six proposed road names, four are not consistent with the Auckland Council Road Naming Guideline. ‘Te Ararata Mews’ and ‘Tomonga Close’ are too long for the length of the proposed access lot and may result in cartographical problems. Furthermore, ‘Te Ararata’ and ‘Tomonga’ are in reference to the Mangere Inlet, however, given the location of the proposed development in relation to the Mangere Inlet, it is suggested that these names would be more appropriate for developments within closer proximity to the inlet. With regards to the name ‘Tauhou Close’, it is considered to be too similar to the ‘Tauhoa Road’ in Wellsford and could cause confusion. ‘Repo Place’ was a name recently allocated by the Papakura Local Board to a new road in Takanini.

11.     The use of the suffixes ‘Mews’ and ‘Place’ are appropriate in the circumstances and location.

12.     As the Applicant’s preferred name (‘Koko Mews’) meets the criteria, it is recommended for consideration for approval while noting that ‘Tiotio Place’ is also appropriate as it complies with all the criteria of the road naming guidelines.

Consideration

Significance of Decision

 

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

Maori impact statement

14.     The decision sought from the Mangere-Otahuhu 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.

Consultation

15.     The applicant has consulted the relevant local iwi groups in the area and thirteen (13) iwi groups were consulted. Of these thirteen, Te Kawerau indicated their support for the names proposed while Te Akitai Waiohua provided three additional names, which the applicant has adopted.

16.     New Zealand Post was consulted and indicated that all preferred and alternative names are acceptable from their perspective.

Financial and Resourcing Implications

17.     The cost of processing the approval of the proposed new road name and any installation of road name signage is recoverable in accordance with Council’s Administrative Charges.

Legal and Legislative Implications

18.     The decision sought from the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board for this report is not considered to have any legal or legislative implications.

Implementation

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

Comments

 

Background

 

7.       The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan 2015 stated that the board would develop a local ED action plan for the area. The plan is to support a strong local economy. 

8.       The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local ED Action Plan supports the Auckland Plan, Auckland’s Economic Development Strategy (EDS) and the economic outcomes of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Plan.  It is structured into sections that align with the five priorities and cross cutting themes of the Auckland Economic Development Strategy, that are to:

·        grow a business friendly and well-functioning city

·        develop an innovation hub of the Asia-Pacific rim

·        be internationally connected and export driven

·        enhance investment in people to grow skills and a local workforce

·        develop a creative, vibrant international city.

 

9.       The plan will provide a framework that guides local actions in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu for the next three to five years.  It provides a mechanism for the local board to engage with individuals and organisations delivering economic development initiatives and also the wider Māngere-Ōtāhuhu business community. 

10.     The plan contains a set of priority actions for inclusion in future local board agreements and the next long term plan.  The action plan forms the basis of the annual local economic development work programme and will be reviewed annually to agree priorities for the forthcoming financial year.

Local economic development – the role of local boards

11.     Local boards have an important role to play in local economic development and provide useful input to regional economic development initiatives, where appropriate. The prime role of local boards in economic development is to consider unique local conditions and determine how best to respond to local needs and opportunities.

12.     Development of a local ED action plan provides a mechanism to identify local economic development issues and opportunities and identify and action initiatives in response. It also captures relevant regional initiatives and how they relate to specific local circumstances.

13.     The Local Board cannot deliver the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local ED Action Plan alone and will need to partner with key stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, to ensure effective delivery.

Consultation and feedback

14.     Consultation has been undertaken with the following key stakeholders: Auckland Council (Local Economic Development, Community Development Arts and Culture, Local Board Services, Planning South, City Transformation and Community, Policy & Planning, Te Waka Angamua, Unitary Plan), ATEED, Auckland Transport, COMET, Business Improvement Districts (BIDs – Māngere Town Centre, Māngere Village, South Harbour, Ōtāhuhu Mainstreet and Commercial), Ministry of Education, Manukau Institute of Technology, Counties Manukau DHB, Auckland International Airport, Cart Holt Harvey, Hubbards Foods, National Road Carriers and relevant Mana whenua groups including Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua, Ngāti Whātua o Ōrākei, Ngāi Tai Ki Tāmaki, Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngāti Tamaoho, Te Akitai Waiohua, Te Ahiwaru, Ngāti Te Ata Waiohua, Ngāti Paoa, Ngāti Maru, Ngāti Whanaunga, Ngāti Tamaterā, Waikato-Tainui)

15.     Feedback has been sought from stakeholders and has been positive.  Stakeholders have expressed the desire to work with and engage with the local board. The following minor amendments to the version seen by the local board at the 12th February 2015 workshop  have been made:

·    Introductory text:

Page 4 – Confirmed the population statistics quoted by Youth Connection document

Page 8 – Added a new section identifying on-going (building on existing) and new priority projects for Year 1-3.    

·    Action Plan (Appendix 1):

Separated ‘procurement policy’ from action 2 to a new action point

Added ‘compile a local service provider list/database’ in action 8

Added ‘ rail link to Auckland Airport ( Year 5 plus) in action 9

Added a new action point around individual entrepreneurship and innovation/sustainable business

§ Pilot Mangere Local Economic Development Forum

Added  ‘employers pledge’ in action 14

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

16.     The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board ED portfolio holders have been kept up to date with and involved in the development of the local ED action plan.  A previous draft was presented to a local board workshop on 12th February 2015 and feedback from the workshop has been incorporated. 

Māori impact statement

17.     Some actions within the local ED action plan concern mana whenua groups in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu for which local iwi groups are the relevant stakeholders and interested parties.  ATEED is leading the consultation as part of tourism initiatives and support local iwis in developing their capability in achieving their economic aspirations.  If other economic development initiatives were to be developed into project scopes, further consultation with mana whenua groups would be required.

Implementation

18.     The Local ED Action Plan will form the basis for the local economic development work programme for the local board.  The work programme includes suggested priority on-going and new projects for years 1 – 3 (2015/2016 – 2018/2019).  The suggested year 1 projects will form part of the draft work programme for 2015/16 (subject to local board approval).  Officers will report back to the board during the third quarter of 2015/16 to seek approval of project scopes and budget.

Chair’s message

I am delighted to introduce the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Economic Development Action Plan.

 

We have seen a significant growth in our area during the past decade. Mangere-Otahuhu has been the second fastest growing local board area in Auckland. Our area benefits from its proximity to the  industrial heart of Auckland and being the gateway to Auckland. With our economic strength in manufacturing, logistics and wholesale trade, our local economy has a very solid platform on which to build and grow.

 

We are interested in further developing our strengths in logistics, manufacturing and cultural tourism.  We are building partnerships with key stakeholders such Auckland International Airport, Manukau Institute of Technology and Counties Manukau District Health Board and will work with them to set and deliver our vision for Mangere-Otahuhu.

 

While the overall economic picture is positive there is work to be done. Many of our residents have to travel out of the area for employment, while skilled employment in high growth sectors is taken by workers from other parts of the region.  We also have some challenges with young people leaving school without the necessary foundation skills required to successfully engage in further training or employment.  The number of our young people not in employment, education or training is high.

 

As a local board we are keen to support a ‘strong local economy’ through increased collaboration across the public sector, business associations and industry groups.  Together we will help to encourage increased levels of innovation, growth and investment within Mangere-Otahuhu, to secure a wider range of employment opportunities for our residents and ensure that our young people, in particular, have the skills to access these opportunities.

 

This plan is an important step in helping the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board support the development of skills and economic opportunities within Mangere-Otahuhu to provide a prosperous future.

 

Lemauga Lydia Sosene

Chair, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

Local economic strengths

The dominant sector is transport and warehousing. Food and beverage and niche manufacturing are also strengths in the local economy. The presence of Auckland Airport means that the strongest sector in which Auckland competes internationally is tourism.

Strong economic base and growth

In 2014, GDP in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu was $4.5 billion. The GDP growth in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu area over the period was the second highest of Auckland’s Local Board areas, with only the Upper Harbour Local Board area growing faster.

 

Economic activity in the local board area is similar in size to that in Howick, ranking only behind Waitemata and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki local board areas. The local economy grew by 2.5 per cent from 2013-14, marginally below the growth rate in Auckland (2.9%). The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu economy has grown faster than the Auckland region over the ten years to 2014, with average annual growth of 3 per cent, compared to 2 per cent in the Auckland region.

The core of the industrial south

Transport, postal and warehousing is the largest sector in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu.  It is a major source of local employment with 12,471 jobs and contributed $1.4 billion, or 32 per cent, to Māngere-Ōtāhuhu’s GDP in 2014. Its importance in the local economy is increasing. The sector grew by an average of 5 per cent a year between 2004-14.

Auckland Airport is both a major business operation in the area as well as playing a key strategic role in the region’s economy by facilitating a wide range of economic activity through the movement of goods and people.

A wide range of businesses have co-located near the airport to benefit from proximity to the airport and major transport routes. The business district represents a substantial hub of economic activity and is likely to grow in importance in the future.The manufacturing sector contributed over $547 million to local GDP in 2014.  It is the second largest sector in the local board area but has contracted between 2004 and 2014 by -1.4 per cent per annum.

Large-scale export oriented operations

Due to its industrial and institutional base, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu area is home to many large businesses and has the highest average number of employees per business, 9.9, compared to 4.0 regionally. Excluding owner operators, average business employment size in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu was 20.1 employees compared to 12.5 employees  regionally. Many of the large anchor employers have a strong export focus, are committed to the area and play an important role in the local community.

Auckland Airport

Auckland Airport is a major driver of the local economy generating $3.5 billion and 33,300 jobs in 2013. Additionally the airportmakes a vital contribution to New Zealand’s trade and tourism by strengthening connections with the world.

Auckland Airport has over 169,999 sqm of shopping space across both terminals and 443 hectares available land for development. Over 900 businesses are operating around the Airport. The area surrounding Auckland Airport is already developing and it will increasingly become a destination for activities complementing air travel.

Auckland Airport is the second largest cargo port by value in New Zealand, and handles 230 thousand tonnes of airfreight each year. Auckland Airport is the second largest airport in Australasia for international passenger traffic, and a popular place which is visited approximately 38 million times per year by both New Zealanders and international visitors.

 Auckland Airport Master Plan

The recently developed Auckland Airport Master Plan outlines a vision for significant development to take place on airport land over the next 30 years including industrial and logistic development in the Airport Gateway Precinct.

The Auckland Airport Master Plan aims to build a world-class airport that supports airline and aviation-related businesses through staged infrastructure development.

·      The first phase of a new combined international and domestic terminal will be established by 2018.

·      A second runway will be built by around 2025.

·      Capacity to extend the length of the second runway after 2044.

The staged development over 30 years will amount to a multi-billion dollar investment by the airport in the local board area.

 

Proximity to tertiary education institutions and training providers

With the existing MIT campus in Ōtara and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa campus in Māngere and the recent development of new MIT and AUT campuses in Manukau city centre, the local area is undergoing a step change in access to tertiary education. There is also a range of private training establishments in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu (including Corporate Academy and QES).

 

Strong migrant community

Thirty-nine per cent of Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board residents were born overseas, similar to that in the region overall (37%). Over half of those born overseas (60%) had been in New Zealand for more than ten years.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu has the largest proportion of Polynesians in Auckland region, with 60 per cent of residents identifying as Pacific.  The area also has a higher proportion of people of Maori ethnicity of 16% of total population.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Skilled workforce and a range of employment opportunities

A slightly larger proportion of jobs are lowly skilled jobs in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu (44%) compared to the Auckland average (40%) while there are a smaller proportion of highly-skilled jobs (32% compared to 37%).

Investment in skills

Investment to improve education, skills and employment prospects in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu includes initiatives such as Youth Guarantee, Youth Connections, activities linked to the Southern Initiative and investment in education infrastructure.

 

 

 

Established town centres

Town centres in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu reflect the distinctive character of their communities.  The Local Board’s vision is for the centres to be popular places for people to shop, meet up and enjoy themselves, and access community services and facilities. There are also opportunities to increase the number of people living in town centres and to support business and job growth. 

The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan provides for greater opportunities to develop terraced housing and apartments close to town centres and transport hubs. Which will help to revitalise and attract investment into  town centres. There is also strong community support for well-designed and safe town centres with high quality community facilities.

Māngere Town Centre is fast becoming a retail hub on the strength of the Saturday Market. Diverse cultures are reflected in the town centre’s shops and increasingly in multicultural events that draw shoppers to the centre. The upgrade of the swimming pool was completed near the town centre. The proposed Auckland Transports projects Future Street, new bus Route 32, and refurbishment of Māngere Town Centre Bus Interchange will improve connectivity and bring more visitors to the town centre.

Māngere-Bridge Village has a rich cultural heritage. The village has a number of well-regarded cafes and retail shops. The area has experienced a significant increase in property value since 2011 where the average CV rise is 53%.

Māngere East Village is a local shopping centre with a range of amenities. The village is a service centre for the local residents. Re-development of Count down supermarket is creating new opportunities for growth.

Ōtāhuhu Town Centre is known for its heritage qualities and restaurants. With proposed future development i.e. street upgrade, the centre is poised for new growth.

Auckland Council has provided $30 million funding for the Ōtāhuhu Recreation Precinct which is currently under development and scheduled for completion 2016. The Precinct will provide a new library, swimming pool and recreation centre scheduled for completion in mid-2015.

The refurbishment of the Ōtāhuhu Bus-rail Interchange is currently underway and scheduled for completion in 2016 with new bus stops are proposed on Mason Avenue. The new integrated Ōtāhuhu Bus Rail Interchange will encourage passengers to transfer between buses and trains from both Māngere and Ōtāhuhu and will improve connectivity to Otahuhu.

Challenges

The following challenges will need to be addressed in building the economic capacity of Māngere-Ōtāhuhu.

Young people not in education, employment or training (NEET)

In December 2012, 23 per cent of youth (aged 15-24 years) in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu were not in education, employment or training, which was higher than the regional NEET rate of 13 per cent. NEET status is an important economic and social risk factor indicating disengagement in the labour market and education system.  

Education and training providers identified lack of transport access, social deprivation, and lack of opportunities for work experience as critical challenges that impact on the local skills system.

The importance of this issue is demonstrated by the significant focus of local programmes on transitioning pathways for young people to training or employment, and support for young people to build the soft skills and attitudes they need to be successful in training and work.

Stable local demand

The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area had experienced lower population growth than the Auckland average in recent years. Between the 1996 and 2006 censuses, the population increased by 17 per cent, below the Auckland growth rate of 22 per cent. Between the 2006 and 2013 censuses, the population increased by 4 per cent, below the Auckland growth rate of 9 per cent.  Medium population projections suggest that Māngere-Ōtāhuhu could be home to 98,600 residents by 2031.

 

Poor public transport provision

Many areas within Māngere-Ōtāhuhu suffer from poor access to public transport.  Poor transport constrains access to education and employment. The new design of Southern Bus Route and new Route 32 could improve connectivity in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu.  The Local Board supports the future development of a link by rail from Manukau to Auckland International Airport for better access to employment at Auckland International Airport.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Economic Development Action Plan

This action plan builds on the strengths of the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu economy and addresses challenges.  It promotes increased collaboration and building the capability of current programmes. 

Suggested options for action are to:

·      Increase collaboration across industry, public sector and communities.

·      focus on increasing the capability and productivity of Māngere-Ōtāhuhu’s businesses. 

·      Continue the strong focus on youth training and employment.

·      Grow the tourism profile of the area as a visitor destination.

·      Support Māori and Pacific economic development.


 

Strategic context

The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Economic Development Action Plan has been developed to deliver against local, regional and national strategies and plans.

Integrated Business Precinct Plan

The Southern Initiative

·     Employer pledge – improved orientation of HR systems for young people; more job opportunities for young people across Auckland

·     Youth Connections – Youth Connections' vision is to have all young people either working and earning, or learning and training. Its goal is to ensure that every young person has access to support they need to create a plan and a direction to help them reach their potential.  The target is young people (16-24 year olds) with a focus on school leavers.

·     Traction Hub – hub now operational (virtual and physical); regular Mayoral summits.

The integrated business precinct plan provides a co-ordinated framework to develop projects and programmes to enhance the economic performance of the southern industrial precincts. The industrial precincts need to be supported in a co-ordinated way to:

·      Improve public transport services, private vehicle access and connectivity

·      Support the efficient movement of high value-added goods for export

·      Provide a higher level of ancillary services and facilities

Sub-regional context – Economic development in the heart of south Auckland

While the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local ED Action Plan creates a framework to guide actions in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area, the process of economic development operates across Local Board boundaries.  This action plan should be considered within a sub-regional context for south Auckland.  The sub-regional context is one of strong economic growth, employment generation and investment opportunities, placemaking, ethnic diversity and a clear mandate to improve educational achievement, and youth training and employment pathways. 


 

Sub regional context for economic development


Plan Delivery – A partnership approach

The Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Economic Development Plan creates a framework to guide local economic development actions for the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Area.  Its aim is to facilitate effective engagement between those delivering economic development initiatives and the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board.

 

Council Control Organisations (CCOs) including Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development (ATEED) and Auckland Transport (AT) are of the key partners in working with Auckland Council and Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board in delivering local economic development initiatives.

 

Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development

ATEED’s existing activity and programme of work is broadly captured within the 2014-17 Statement of Intent (SOI), agreed with Auckland Council.

The SOI acknowledges that local boards are focused on a range of visitor and economic development related priorities and projects through Local Board Plans. The SOI states that where these priorities can be aligned with ATEED’s regional economic growth focus, ATEED will commit to working with the Auckland Council and Local Boards on the delivery of these priorities. ATEED acknowledges that Local Boards have responsibilities regarding funding and delivering local economic development and local events.

Actions have been developed to ensure that a full range of ATEED’s existing work programmes are reflected in this action plan.

Yearly review, monitoring and work programme

This action plan forms the implementation and work programme for the Local Board to deliver on its economic development objectives. Prior to each financial year, Auckland Council’s Local Economic Development team will hold a planning workshop with the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board. At the workshop there will be a review of the Action Plan, focusing on activity underway, completed actions and potential new opportunities, to agree the local economic development work programme for the following financial year.

This process keeps the action plan current and relevant.  It also allows proposals for funding of local economic development projects to be considered for inclusion in the Local Board Agreement and Council’s Annual Plan and Long Term Plan. 

 

Priority New projects – 2015/16 (Year 1)

A number of projects outlined in the Local ED Action Plan are underway and are being implemented and funded.  Outlined below are new projects that are potentially deliverable in years 1.  A number of the projects outlined below are multi-year.  Year 1 projects form part of the local economic development work programme for 2015/16 (subject to Local Board approval).  These projects could start with investment from the Local Board (and partners).  This will ensure that there is increased momentum on delivery early in the Plan period.  The projects are to be implemented sequentially and are linked.

Indicative year 1 projects

Action 2 Establish a Māngere-Ōtāhuhu business association forum where BIDs meet bi-monthly with the local board and foster greater communications among BIDs and the local board and develop a local board strategic plan to leverage BIDs programmes.

Action 3 Implement Ōtāhuhu Town Centre Design Framework

Action 6 Facilitate and support the emerging Airport business group through to formalising as an incorporated society.

Action 14 Work with National Road Carrier and local schools to create partnerships in provision of youth employment pathways to transport industry

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 July 2015

 

 

Manukau Harbour Forum: Legislative Change Requiring Agreement by Resolution

 

File No.: CP2015/11650

 

  

Purpose

1.       To request that the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board resolve on recommendations made by the Manukau Harbour Forum regarding membership and delegations to the forum. This is to ensure that the forum has a valid agreement between all nine member boards in place prior to 31 July 2015 to comply with recent changes to the Local Government Act 2002.

Executive Summary

2.       In 2014 amendments were made to the Local Government Act 2002 that affect the Manukau Harbour Forum as a joint committee of nine local boards.

3.       The forum’s existing terms of reference do not cover all the requirements under the amended legislation, as the resolutions from each member board adopting the terms of reference and establishing the forum need to be the same, i.e. showing agreement between all nine boards.

4.       In light of the above, in order for the forum to exist after 31 July 2015 all member boards will need to show agreement by resolution on the following:

i)        The number of members each local board may appoint to the joint committee;

ii)       How the joint committee chairperson and deputy chairperson are to be appointed;

iii)      The terms of reference of the joint committee;

iv)      What responsibilities are to be delegated to the joint committee by each appointee local board; and

v)      The process for amending the agreement.

5.       At its business meeting of 8 June 2015 the forum resolved as follows:

          b)      Requests that this report be forwarded on to the nine member boards recommending that each board:

i)        Appoints one named member and one named alternate member to the Manukau Harbour Forum

ii)       Confirms that the chairperson and deputy chairperson of the Manukau Harbour Forum will be elected by a majority of members at the first meeting of each electoral term

iii)      Confirms the revised Terms of Reference for the Manukau Harbour Forum as appended to Agenda reports

iv)      Delegates authority to the Manukau Harbour Forum to make decision within its terms of reference noting that any significant or controversial decisions will only be made by the forum with the confirmation by resolution of all the member boards that would be affected by the decision.

v)      Confirms that any changes to this agreement will be agreed first by the Manukau Harbour Forum then recommended to the nine member boards for their approval, noting that resolutions must be identical

v)      Notes that in order for the nine member boards to agree on this new binding agreement for the Manukau Harbour Forum, the resolutions made in respect of recommendations b) i)-v) above (with the exception of b) i) where appointees must be named) must be identical and that in the absence of identical resolutions by all member boards the Forum will not meet the requirements under clause 30a of Schedule 7 to the Local Government Act 2002.

 

6.       A copy of the revised terms of reference is appended as Attachment A.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      agrees with the recommendations of the Manukau Harbour Forum and resolves to:

i)        appoint one named member and one named alternate member to the Manukau Harbour Forum.

ii)       confirm that the chairperson and deputy chairperson of the Manukau Harbour Forum will be elected by a majority of members at the first meeting of each electoral term.

iii)      confirm the revised Terms of Reference for the Manukau Harbour Forum as appended to Agenda reports.

iv)      delegate authority to the Manukau Harbour Forum to make decisions within its terms of reference, noting that any significant or controversial decisions will only be made by the forum with the confirmation by resolution of all the member boards that would be affected by the decision and that the local board will reserve the right to hold and promote a different view to that of the forum on any issue that may impact the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board area.

v)      confirm that any changes to this agreement will be agreed first by the Manukau Harbour Forum then recommended to the nine member boards for their approval, noting that resolutions must be identical.

vi)      note that in order for the requirements of this new agreement for the Manukau Harbour Forum to be reached, the resolutions of each of the nine member boards made in respect of recommendations a) (i)-(v) above (with the exception of a) (i) where appointees are to be named) must be identical and that in the absence of identical resolutions by all member boards the Forum will not meet the requirements under clause 30a of Schedule 7 to the Local Government Act 2002.

 

 

Discussion

7.       In 2014 amendments were made to the Local Government Act 2002, in particular Schedule 1AA Clause 5 reads as follows:

Requirement to enter into agreement under clause 30A of Schedule 7

(1)     This clause applies to a local authority that appointed a joint committee under clause 30(1)(b) of Schedule 7 before the date of commencement of clause 30A of Schedule 7 if that committee remains in existence after that date.

(2)     The local authority must, within 12 months of the date of commencement of clause 30A of Schedule 7, enter into an agreement under that clause with every other local authority or public body that has appointed members to that joint committee.

(3)     If an agreement under clause 30A of Schedule 7 is not entered into within the period specified in subclause (2), the joint committee is deemed to be discharged by the local authority.

(4)     Nothing in this clause applies if the joint committee referred to in subclause (1) was constituted or continued by, or required to be constituted or continued by, an enactment other than this Act.

8.       Each of the Manukau Harbour Forum’s member boards previously resolved varying membership and delegations (Attachment B). The Act requires agreement by resolution which means all resolutions from the boards need to be the same.

9.       Analysis has been undertaken by Auckland Council’s legal services team as to whether the boards at the time of establishment covered all the necessary points within the legislation (Attachment C).  This analysis shows that the requirements of the legislation for agreements in regard to joint committees have not been met and the member boards will need to pass new resolutions to satisfy all the requirements of the amendments to the Act.

10.     The Forum’s resolutions of 8 June 2015, based on advice from staff, were intended to keep these provisions as close as possible to what has been previously agreed by the majority of member boards.

11.     At the same meeting, the forum also took the opportunity to make a number of minor revisions to its terms of reference, which staff had been working on in consultation with the forum following a workshop on 13 April, at which this issue was originally raised with the Forum.

12.     It is important note that unless this new agreement comes into effect on or before 31 July 2015, the forum will technically cease to exist. In order to achieve this, the recommendations must be resolved, in full and unamended, by all nine member boards.

Consideration

Local Board Views and Implications

13.     Local boards have previously agreed, through adoption of the forum’s terms of reference, that the Manukau Harbour is a regional asset and it was appropriate that Local Boards will collectively contribute to strategies and outcomes that enhance the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of the harbour. The forum has been seen as an effective mechanism to achieve this.

14.     The role of the forum is to champion the sustainable management of the Manukau Harbour and adjacent communities. It developed a vision and strategy in line with this which was adopted in September 2014.

15.     The Forum has no budget allocated to projects and relies on the member boards to fund projects for its work programme.

Maori Impact Statement

16.     Workshops of the Manukau Harbour Forum were held on 13 April and 8 June 2015 to discuss the ongoing role of mana whenua in relation to the forum. Some minor changes were made to the forum’s terms of reference as a result of this to reflect the forum’s obligations under Te Tiriti o Waitangi/The Treaty of Waitangi, and its desire to work with mana whenua on an ongoing basis.

17.     The forum anticipates receiving further advice and options regarding the formalisation of its relationship with mana whenua.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Implementation Issues

18.     The new agreement must be entered into by all member boards prior to 31 July 2015.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 July 2015

 

 

Manukau Harbour Forum Joint Committee – Terms of Reference

1. Introduction

The formation of a forum to champion the sustainable management of the Manukau

Harbour and adjacent communities has arisen through the collective aspirations of

local boards bordering the harbour itself. Local Boards have a statutory responsibility

and are democratically accountable for identifying and communicating the interests

and preferences of the people in their Local Board area in relation to the content of

the strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws of the Auckland Council.

 

The Manukau Harbour is a regional taonga/treasure for all the peoples of Auckland. It is therefore appropriate that Local Boards collectively contribute to strategies and

outcomes that restore and enhance the well-being of the harbour itself.

 

2. Background / Context

Prior to November 2010, agencies generally approached issues of community

concern in alignment with the previous local authority boundaries, and somewhat

independently in each area. Five legacy territorial authorities and the Auckland

Regional Council had a direct interest in the harbour due to proximity. Under the

Auckland Council, the following local boards[1] share a boundary with the harbour:

·    Waitakere Ranges

·    Whau

·    Puketapapa

·    Maungakiekie-Tamaki

·    Otara-Papatoetoe

·    Mangere-Otahuhu

·    Manurewa

·    Papakura

·    Franklin

 

There is sufficient commonality of issues and interests, for synergies to be gained

from a sub-regional approach to advocacy in relation to the management of the

Manukau Harbour. This is also supported by the legislative imperative for local

boards to work together where the interests and preferences of communities within

each local board area will be better served by doing so.

 

Likely benefits of such an alliance are early identification of and response to

emerging issues, a more cohesive approach to multi-causal problems, and greater

efficiency and effectiveness of planning and interventions. These benefits are

particularly pertinent planning matters relating to:

·    Auckland Council’s statutory obligations under Te Tiriti o Waitangi/The Treaty of Waitangi

·    The Auckland Plan and the Unitary Plan

·    The Annual Plan and the Long-term Plan (LTP)

·    The Waitakere Ranges Heritage Area Act 2008

·    The 1990 Manukau Harbour Action Plan

·    National Policy Statements and National Environmental Standards

·    The activities of CCOs in relation to the harbour and the coastal environment

·    Other harbour and coastal ownership and management issues

 

3. Purpose

The purpose of the Manukau Harbour Forum is to provide for a means of collective

Local Board advocacy on issues affecting the Manukau Harbour, and the adjacent

foreshore. Issues to be addressed by the Forum may include:

·    Restoration of the health and wellbeing of the Manukau Harbour

·    The role of Mana Whenua in relation to the Manukau Harbour

·    A unified management-approach to the Manukau Harbour

·    Advocacy on issues related to both natural and human activities affecting the harbour foreshore

·    Wastewater and stormwater discharges

·    The strategic removal of mangroves and Pacific oysters

·    Coastal erosion mitigation opportunities

·    The enhancement of marine and coastal habitats that assist with increased

Biodiversity

·    The preservation of sustainable commercial and recreational fisheries within

the harbour

·    The protection of Maui’s Dolphin and other species

·    Catchments and tributary streams that flow into the harbour

·    Access to the harbour

·    The role of the port operation at Onehunga

 

4. Principles

The Forum is in principle collectively accountable to the wider community for

supporting the development and delivery of the community’s vision in relation to the

Manukau Harbour. In practice, individual members are accountable to their own

boards and to the constituents whose interests they represent.

 

The Forum:

·    Is strategic, not operational

·    Deals only with matters where collaboration and synergy add value (it does

not duplicate what already exists, or deal with matters that are better dealt

with more locally, i.e. it does not work at a single board level) though it may deal with issues that impact some but not all member boards.

·    Is committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi/The Treaty of Waitangi, and it will work actively to ensure that it also acknowledges and recognises the interests of mana whenua through continued development of an open relationship with mana whenua

·    Recognises the local, regional, and national significance of the Waitakere Ranges and its foothills and coasts, as set out in the Waitakere Ranges Heritage Area Act 2008, and acknowledges the statutory obligations to protect the Heritage Area.

·    Will focus on commonalities rather than differences.

Mangere Community Facilities Investigation

 

File No.: CP2015/08369

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To present the findings of a needs and options analysis for community facility provision in Mangere, with a focus on areas surrounding Mangere Centre Park and Walter Massey Park.

Executive Summary

2.       A needs and options analysis has been completed for current and future community facilities in areas surrounding Mangere Centre Park and Walter Massey Park. This work is identified in the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Plan 2014, the draft Community Facilities Network Plan and community advocacy to the board.

3.       The analysis identifies an increasing demand for facilities, programmes and services in the area. A mix of facility requirements has emerged, with options for meeting identified needs categorised into low, medium and high bands based on operational and capital growth costs.

4.       The higher cost projects such as redeveloping the Mangere Community House and developing a new multi-use purpose built community facility will require further planning and budget. Some of the lower or medium cost improvements could be addressed in the short term and are being investigated for 2015-16 work plans. 

5.       A key recommendation of the report is the redevelopment of the Mangere Community House at Mangere Centre Park. The board could use its existing locally driven initiatives budget or discretionary capital budget to progress this option.   

6.       The other key recommendation is to develop a multi-use community facility on Walter Massey Park to meet increased demand for services. A group of community based stakeholders led by the Mangere East Access Trust is interested in leading the long term planning for this facility.  

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Receives the Mangere Community Facilities Investigation Report on existing community facility provision around Mangere Centre Park and Walter Massey Park in Mangere East (Attachment A).

b)      Notes that specific funding has not been allocated to progress the options identified in the attached needs and options report, with lower and medium level options to meet the identified community needs to be investigated further and reported to the board by the relevant operational business units.

c)      Supports the redevelopment of the Mangere Community House on Mangere Centre Park and requests the Property Department to report back on the scope of works, estimated costs and timelines for the board’s consideration.

d)      Notes that the Mangere East Access Trust intend to form a combined Walter Massey Park sports and community committee or legal entity to progress the development of a multi-use community facility on Walter Massey Park.

 

 

 

 

Comments

Background

7.       The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Plan 2014 identifies the need to assess options for multi-use community facility in Mangere East. This was in response to a submission and early investigation by the Mangere East Community Learning Centre for a new purpose built facility on Walter Massey Park.

8.       The draft Community Facilities Network Plan 2014 also identifies the need to investigate existing community facility provision around Mangere Centre Park and Walter Massey Park, and to assess the need for improved or additional provision to meet community needs in the wider Mangere East area.

9.       External consultants Visitor Solutions were engaged to investigate community facility provision in Mangere, with a specific focus in the areas surrounding Walter Massey Park and Mangere Centre Park. The report on the research findings and options for improved facilities is provided as Attachment A.

10.     Mangere Centre Park contains a sports stadium with car park and playing fields,            Mangere Community House, Papatuanuku Kokiri Marae, the former depot facilities, Rising Stars Boxing Mangere and the Manukau Live Steamers miniature railway.

11.     Walter Massey Park contains playing fields, playgrounds, the Mangere East Community Learning Centre, the Mangere East Library, Metro Theatre and other social service spaces, various clubs and their facilities.

12.     The needs and options analysis included key stakeholder and wider community workshops/focus groups, one-on-one interviews, telephone interviews, mana whenua engagement, site visits, facility assessment, online surveys and desktop research. The research findings are shown in pages 5-7 of the attached report.

Discussion

13.     The study area serves an immediate population of 30,000 residents who live within 2 kilometres of each park. The areas have a relatively slow growing population by Auckland standards with low to modest projections for future growth.

14.     The community also has a younger age profile than the Auckland region with higher proportion of children and youth across all areas. The lack of youth focused facilities has been identified as a key need in the community by the research participants. 

15.     The study found that there is a broad range of facilities operating in the wider board area, which offer users many different types of classes, programmes, workshops, fitness opportunities, events and spaces to hire at a community level. These are summarised in section 6, pages 23-26. The key findings were:

·     The majority of these facilities are within a five kilometre distance of the two parks.

·     A variety of adult education opportunities and other community/social service programmes are available at these facilities, and children and youth have access to after school and school holiday programmes.

·     Average facility visitations on a weekly basis range from approximately 500 through to 1,300 users. The large facility at Moana-Nui-ā-Kiwa Pool and Leisure Centre has very high attendance of approximately 8,000 users per week.   

·     Marae in the board area may also be hired for conferences, hui or fonos, and provide accommodation and a variety of classes, programmes and social services.

·     There are approximately 51 sports clubs and 36 schools in the board area.

Needs and aspirations of respondents

16.     Based on the responses from the research participants, the key needs and aspirations for facility provision in the area are: 

·      Current community facilities in the study area are inadequate and not meeting overall demand.

·      Development of an enhanced/new multi-use, fit-for-purpose community centre at Walter Massey Park is viewed as the most significant need.

·      Walter Massey Park would benefit significantly if the land at 374 Massey Road (fruit/vegetable shop) was purchased and incorporated into the park. This site is however not currently on the market and will need to be assessed in accordance with council’s open space acquisition criteria if it becomes available in the future. 

·      Mangere Centre Park could also benefit significantly from further development, such as lighting and security, and redevelopment of Mangere Community House.

·      Many facilities at both parks have reached capacity and increasing demand for meetings, programmes and services is having a notable impact.

·      Respondents wish to see improved communication with council in the future.

·      Safety of park users was reported as a concern e.g. lighting, vandalism, anti-social behaviour, poor visibility/sight lines, and minimal police presence.

·      Both parks could be used more with better quality/range of facilities and services.

 The research findings are contained in section 7, pages 27-40 of the attached report.

Potential development options and next steps

17.  The options to meet the identified needs have been categorised as low, medium or high  based on level of capital and operational expenditure needed to implement them.

18. Low level options focus on early implementation within available budgets. Examples include improvements to:

·      communication channels between the users and council

·      improved lighting, security, signage and seating

·      repair, enhancement and maintenance of playgrounds and servicing of toilets

·      introduction of more native terrestrial biodiversity (flora)

·      affordable facility hire costs (targeted discounted user rates)

·      additional services provided using potential space within other adjoining facilities

·      install re-locatable garages/sheds to temporarily address capacity issues.

19.  Medium level options focus on increasing the use of both parks and their existing facilities.  Examples of these options include:

·      informal sports/leisure areas and outdoor gym equipment

·      better range of child related facilities and more access to playing/training areas

·      improvements to park amenities, especially toilets

·      determine the future of Korowai House at 161 Robertson Road (the study recommends that investment in purpose built facilities is preferable to restoring Korowai House to meet community needs from a cost benefit perspective)

·      community governance of facilities on parks.

20.  The findings of the research have been passed onto the appropriate operational units of council to investigate the lower and medium level options further. It is anticipated that some of the suggested options can be met within existing budgets and incorporated into the 2015-16 work programme. Some options such as temporary ‘pop-up’ structures will require further planning, budget and regulatory consents.   

21.  The key high level options to meet community needs are:

·      to implement planned redevelopment of the community house at Mangere Centre Park (currently on hold as funding is unavailable)

·      to investigate the feasibility of building a new integrated multi-use facility within Walter Massey Park to meet community and recreational needs.

22.     The existing community house in Mangere Centre Park is dated, with facilities such as the kitchen, toilets and the garage on the side of the premises unfit for the current volume of use. Some work has been previously commissioned by the Property Department to identify improvement opportunities for the facility and this can be used as a starting point if the board wish to progress the redevelopment of this facility. If the board supports redevelopment of the community house, the Property Department can provide a redevelopment plan with timelines and costs for the board’s consideration.  

Multi-Use Facility at Walter Massey Park

23.     The draft findings of the needs and options analysis have been discussed with the key community stakeholders who participated in the research. The Mangere East Access Trust which operates the Mangere East Community Learning Centre on Walter Massey Park intends to form a combined sports and community committee or legal entity to progress the development of the multi-use community centre on Walter Massey Park.

24.     This community led approach has significant benefits including:

·      consistency  with the Mayor’s proposal in the draft Long-term Plan 2015-25 of an empowered community approach where community participation in its own development is encouraged and supported

·      the study found that the existing community-focused social service providers at Walter Massey Park are strong and well-functioning, and already coordinate  resources and opportunities to provide services

·      resulting facilities and services are more responsive to evolving community needs  

·      council is seen as only part of the solution and the community has the ability to raise funds and seek partnerships with other external sources. 

25.     Future models for an empowered communities approach to providing facilities and services in Mangere East could include:

·     opportunities for community governance and management of facilities to increase responsiveness to local communities

·     asset transfers to community groups who own public assets (or have long leases) and take responsibility for running and maintaining them

·     support of community anchor organisations that support voluntary and community   organisations that provide local initiatives.

26.     If the board supports a community-led approach to the future provision of a multi-use community facility and services on Walter Massey Park, the resulting committee or entity is likely to require board support and funding for further planning and professional services to identify location, scope, operational requirements, management models and cost estimates.

27.     Further details on potential development options including potential risks, social and financial impacts, partnership opportunities and governance/management implications are contained in section 8, pages 41-52 of the attached report.

 Consideration

Local board views and implications

28.     The Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board Plan 2014 outlines the board’s interest in developing and improving community facilities. Its specifically identifies the following key initiatives to:

· Assess options for a multi-use community facility in Mangere East

·        Improve sports facilities and lighting at a number of parks that include Mangere  Centre Park and Walter Massey Park, Mangere East

·        Collaborate with sports clubs and recreational groups to assist in making better use of existing facilities and help provide specialist support skills.

The findings of the draft needs and options analysis have been discussed with the board at workshops on the 5th May and 3rd June 2015. 

Maori impact statement

29.     Maori make up approximately 16% of the Mangere-Otahuhu area. 39% of the respondents to the online and paper based surveys for the study described themselves as being Maori.

30.     Engagement with mana whenua was sought as part of the consultation process for the Mangere Community Facilities Investigation. Seventeen key contacts representing mana whenua interests in the wider Mangere area were invited to participate as key stakeholders.

31.     A representative from Ngāti Whatua Orakei took part in discussion sessions.     Representatives from Ngāti Tamatera, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua and Ngāti Maru        confirmed their interest in the project area, but due to the nature of the study did not require consultation at the time of the investigation.

32.     Improved facilities and services in the wider Mangere East area are likely to have a positive impact on Maori users.

Implementation Issues

33.     Specific funding has not been allocated to progress the options identified in the attached needs and options report. It is anticipated that some of the lower and medium cost options can be resourced using existing operational budgets. These are being investigated further and will be reported to the board by the relevant operational business units. Section 9, page 54 of the attached report refers to a draft implementation plan with recommended actions shown in Appendix G, pages 100-111.

34.     The redevelopment of the Mangere Community House at Mangere Centre Park can be progressed if the board identifies planning and capital budgets. A previous high level estimate for the refurbishment by the Property Department suggested a capital budget of approximately $500,000 would be required. An option for the board would be to use its locally driven initiatives budget and discretionary capital budget allocated as part of the Long-term Plan 2015-25.  Alternatively the board could seek funding allocation as part of the next Annual Plan or Long-term Plan process.  

35.     The development of a multi-use community facility at Walter Massey Park is likely to require significant capital budget, sourced from external funders or through the next Long-term Plan 2018-28. Planning for the multi-use facility will need to take into account the needs of other users of the park, with an agreed site development plan in place between council and the committee or legal entity that leads the development.  

36.     If the board supports the formation of a committee or legal entity to develop the multi-use community facility on Walter Massey Park, future funding support to this entity may be required to progress the planning and development of the facility. The   costs of this are dependent on a number of variables and any support from the board will be subject to a funding proposal from the committee or entity at the appropriate time.

Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board

15 July 2015

 

 

Auckland Transport Update - July 2015

 

File No.: CP2015/13608

 

  

Purpose

1.          This report provides an update on local transport matters over the last month for the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board (MOLB).

Executive Summary

2.       This report contains a general monthly update on transport matters both locally and from across Auckland and a list of issues currently being addressed by Auckland Transport for the MOLB.

 

 

Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      Receives the Auckland Transport Update – July 2015 report.

 

 

Responding to Resolutions

3.       No resolutions require responses this month.

Discussion

 

Long Term Plan

 

4.       On Thursday 25 June 2015 Auckland Council adopted its 2015-2025 Long Term Plan.

5.       Adoption of the plan sets Auckland Council’s planned budget for ten years in outline and the next three in detail.  It also confirms Auckland Council’s commitment to the Regional Land Transport Programme.

6.       This programme is the combined plan for Auckland Transport, New Zealand Transport Agency, and KiwiRail for the next ten years. Auckland Transport has worked closely with these other agencies in the development of this document, which will be formally ratified by the Boards of these organisations over the next month.

7.       In the Long Term Plan Auckland Council has committed to funding Auckland Transport’s ‘Accelerated Programme’ instead of the ‘Basic Programme’. By funding this programme Auckland Council is maintaining its commitment to transport in Auckland. 

8.       Auckland Transport’s budget for most of this Financial Year (14/15) was $733 million which was increased during the year to $751 million. Auckland Transport’s actual spend is likely to be approx. $710 million. Next Financial Year’s budget is now confirmed as $620 million. The ‘Accelerated Programme’ roughly maintains the status quo and allows the delivery of a number of projects that would not have been delivered in the ‘Basic Programme’.

9.       Detailed planning is still being completed but the full details of planned work will be provided to Local Board Members in the near future. From the MOLB’s perspective the most important commitment is the confirmation of funding for the Otahuhu Bus-Rail Interchange. 

 

 

Rail Reliability

 

10.     Rail reliability has been an issue in recent months. In April 2015, 746 trains (7 per cent of services) were cancelled and average lateness per train was 2.6 minutes

11.     This issue has been raised at all levels within Auckland Transport, including with Auckland Transport’s Board. The reasons for the delays have been publically discussed and include:

·        The phasing out of the old diesel locomotives that are at the end of their life cycles;

·        The time required for conversion training of drivers;

·        Emergency incidents; and

·        General teething problems with operating a completely new set of trains and rail network management system.

 

12.     April 2015 was particularly bad because there were also a large number of emergency services incidents, including two fatalities and one when an overhead line fell in high winds.

13.     May 2015 saw improved punctuality at 80.3% compared to 77% in March and April 2015. However, this was still lower than the 84% achieved in May 2014 and below both the 12-month average and the organisation’s target of 85%.

14.     Reliability in May 2015 was 95% which is below the 12-month figure of 96.3% and below the organisation’s target of 98%. Reliability in May 2014 was 96.3%.

15.     Auckland Transport is taking this issue seriously and everything possible is being done to improve the situation until the City Rail Link removes the ‘bottle neck’ in the centre of the network that significantly reduces the network’s resilience.

16.     Auckland Transport’s Board is well aware of the situation and is being briefed. A plan for improving rail performance was tabled at the Board’s June meeting (on 2 July 2015). 

Future Streets

 

17.     The ‘Future Streets’ project continues to progress. Currently the project is being circulated around supporting Council departments (i.e. Parks, who will be responsible for ongoing maintenance of the street plantings) and have confirmed budget and subsidies from New Zealand Transport Agency.

18.     The total figure for the project is a little lower than originally predicted but is still very significant with a total budget of approximately $5.2 million confirmed.

19.     Now the budget is confirmed the team will confirm final details and start the bulk of the consent process by the end of July 2015.

20.     The project is still on track to start construction in October 2015. The areas prioritised to start first are the areas funded by the MOLB.

East West Connections

 

21.     East West Connections is a project to analyse transport routes between SH20 and SH1 and develop solutions for managing an anticipated increase in road freight of 60% through that corridor in the next 30 years. In particular, the objective will be to permit better connectivity for the industrial areas of Onehunga-Southdown, East Tamaki-Highbrook, the Airport, Wiri and southern Mt Wellington.

22.     A meeting took place with the Transport Portfolio Leader on 9 June 2015 the project team briefed the Transport Portfolio Leader and on 1 July 2015 the team briefed the whole MOLB. 

23.     From the MOLB’s perspective the most important part of the East-West Study relates to the proposed frequent service bus route Route 32 that will link Sylvia Park, Otahuhu and Mangere.  The route is being funded mostly by the New Zealand Transport Agency although Auckland Transport is contributing to the project. 

 

24.     The project will include identifying the route, upgrading existing roads and intersections to make them easier for buses to use and upgrading key interchanges so that people are able to connect easily with other buses or trains at key locations like Otahuhu, Mangere and Sylvia Park. 

25.     At this stage the works planned to implement route 32 include development of the Mangere Town Centre bus interchange, but construction is not planned to start until 2022.

 

Otahahu Bus Rail Interchange and Linkages Project

 

26.     On 1 July 2015 the team building the Otahuhu Bus-Rail interchange briefed whole of the MOLB on the Bus-Rail Interchange and on the ‘Linkages Project’.

27.     The bus-rail interchange is funded and is set to be delivered by mid-2016.

28.     The MOLB’s use of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund to improve pedestrian links between Mason Ave and Station Road has allowed the team to leverage a significant amount of new improvements in Mason Ave. Improvements include a new pedestrian link from Mason Ave to Station Road through the car park opposite the recreation centre, improved footpaths on Mason Ave and new bus shelters. 

 

Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF):

 

29.     MOLB has a total pool of approx. $1,971,770 available in this electoral term to spend on transport projects.

30.     So far in this electoral term the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board has identified six projects and these are discussed in detail in Attachment C.

31.     Construction of the walking route in the car park linking Mason and Station Roads in Otahuhu has started is almost complete.

32.     The MOLB requested that the Bader Drive/Idlewild Intersection be reinvestigated because there are concerns in the community about safety at this intersection.

33.     This intersection has been reinvestigated and the Transport Portfolio Leader briefed on the engineer’s opinion. In summary the engineer found that:

·        Signals are not able to be installed because the length of the queue formed by cars ‘backing up’ at signals there would block the exit from the motorway off-ramp, creating a safety hazard on the motorway. 

·        The engineer then looked at putting a roundabout in this location. A roundabout using only the current road’s width would create a similar length tail and block the motorway off-ramp.

·        The option that resolves the issue here the best would be a double lane roundabout.   This would provide good flow for traffic in all directions.  The only issue is that this option will require purchase of neighbouring properties.  Therefore with a build cost of about $500,000 plus the cost of buying property the project becomes very expensive.  This option is a good idea but it would not currently be able to be justified within Auckland Transport’s current budgets.
