Purpose

1.       This report presents the Community Development, Arts and Culture (CDAC) 2015/2016 Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board work programme for approval.

Executive Summary

2.       This report provides information to support local boards to make decisions required to approve the CDAC 2015/2016 work programme.

3.       The draft CDAC work programme aims to provide a defined work programme for the 2015/2016 financial year. The work programme covers the following areas:

·        community development and safety

·        arts and culture

·        events

·        community facilities.

4.       The CDAC work programme for the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board has been aligned to the following 2014-2017 Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan priorities:

·        a built environment that strengthens our communities and reinforces our heritage and local character

·        strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate, celebrate and contribute

·        successful businesses and good jobs for our people.

5.       Local boards are being requested to approve the CDAC work programme for FY 2015/2016.  Local boards are requested to note that delivery of Community Development and Safety (CDS) workstreams described in Attachment A is subject to the outcome of the Empowered Communities Approach.

Recommendation

 

Recommendation/s

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)      approve the 2015/2016 Community Development, Arts and Culture work programme (Attachment A), noting that the Community Development and Safety component is dependant upon the outcome of the Empowered Communities Approach

b)      approve the community lease work plan for 2015/2016 (Attachment B)

c)      approve the 2015/2016 Onehunga and Oranga Community Centres work programme, the Riverside Community Centre work programme and the Dunkirk Road Activity Centre work programme (attachments C, D and E).

 

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 Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board plan 2014 – 2017.

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

·        a built environment that strengthens our communities and reinforces our heritage and local character

·        strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate, celebrate and contribute

·        successful businesses and good jobs for our people.

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

·        Community Development and Safety: These projects and programmes include implementing safety and alcohol harm reduction plans, neighbourhood safety initiatives, partnering with the Ruapotaka Marae on capacity-building activities for local groups, youth development work, and scoping opportunities for community gardens in the local area.  Other projects include exploring the possibility of establishing social enterprises in Maungakiekie-Tāmaki, graffiti vandalism prevention, advocating for and collaborating on local social housing initiatives, and working with Auckland District Health Board in developing a community well-being plan.

·        Arts and Culture: This includes art integration activity at the Onehunga Foreshore, operating Te Oro as a venue for community arts and engagement activities, and advising the Onehunga Enhancement Society regarding the bequest and gift offer for a Peter Lange designed seat on the Onehunga foreshore.

·        Events: This work programme includes a range of community events such as ANZAC day, volunteer appreciation awards, and citizenship ceremonies as well as administering funding rounds for local event support funding. Other events include the Onehunga foreshore opening and dawn blessing, developing a local signature event, and a programme of seasonal local events.

·        Community Facilities: This includes the provision of community facilities and their promotion, community leasing, venues for hire, and supporting community-led houses to connect and deliver to local board work outcomes. The work programme also includes activating the Oranga and Onehunga community centres and implementing centre work programmes.

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 9 June, to ensure activities align with the local board priorities and meet the needs of the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki 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 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 9 June 2015. The views expressed by local board members are reflected in Attachment A.

Māori 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.

Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board

13                                              Disposals Recommendation Report

Disposals Recommendation Report

 

File No.: CP2015/11287

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       This report seeks endorsement from the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board (MTLB) for Auckland Council Property Limited (ACPL) to recommend the properties at 56/7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington, 57/7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington and 5 Rayma Place, Mt Wellington for disposal.

Executive Summary

2.       The council-owned properties at 56 and 57, 7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington and 5 Rayma Place, Mt Wellington have been identified as potentially surplus to council requirements through a review process.

3.       56 and 57, 7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington are both two bedroom units which are part of a larger, seven unit, cross-leased site.  Auckland Council owns five-sevenths of the freehold. 5 Rayma Place, Mt Wellington is a road reserve that the adjoining owner is encroached on.

4.       ACPL commenced the rationalisation process for these properties in December 2014.  Consultation with council and its CCOs has now taken place.  No alternative service uses have been identified for these sites.  Iwi feedback has generally been supportive of the proposed divestment of these sites.  ACPL have held a workshop with the MTLB regarding these and the feedback received was supportive of divestment of these properties.  This report is intended to provide the MTLB with an opportunity for formal decision making regarding these sites.

5.       A resolution for the sale of these sites is required from the Finance and Performance Committee before any disposal can be progressed.

Recommendation

 

Recommendation/s

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)      endorse Auckland Council Property Limited’s recommendation to the Finance and Performance Committee to dispose of:

i)        56/7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington;

ii)       57/7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington; and

iii)      5 Rayma Place, Mt Wellington.

Comments

6.       ACPL and Auckland Council Property Department jointly work on a comprehensive review of council’s property portfolio. One of the outcomes of the review process is to identify properties in the council portfolio that are potentially surplus to requirements and that may be suitable to sell.  The subject property has been identified as potentially surplus through this review process.

7.       Once a property has been identified as potentially surplus, ACPL engages with council and its CCO’s through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process, to establish whether the property must be retained for a strategic purpose or is required for a future funded project.  Once a property has been internally cleared of any service requirements, ACPL then consults with local boards, ward councillors, mana whenua and the Independent Maori Statutory Board.  All sale recommendations must be approved by the ACPL Board before it makes a final recommendation to the Finance and Performance Committee. 

Property information – 56 and 57, 7 Rowlands Avenue, Mt Wellington

8.       The two subject units are part of a 1,581m2 cross-leased site of which council currently owns five-sevenths of the freehold.  The entire site was acquired by the Mt Wellington Borough Council in 1962.  The reason for the acquisition is unknown.  The subject units were part of the “Own Your Own” scheme, which allows for eligible people to purchase residential dwellings from council for 20% less than market value on the proviso that the property be sold back to council with the same discount.  The Manager Regional Operations, Auckland Council Property Department has confirmed that the two subject units are no longer required by Auckland Council for housing for the elderly or the Own Your Own scheme.  The two units on this larger site which are not in council ownership are privately owned as part of the Own Your Own scheme. 

9.       The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan zoning of the entire site is Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings.  Each unit has a 2014 rating value of $225,000. 

Internal consultation

10.     The rationalisation process for these units commenced in December 2014.  No alternative uses were identified during this process.  The Heritage Unit was invited prior to the internal consultation process to raise any archaeological issues.  The Closed Landfills and Contaminated Land Response team were also asked to assess the properties prior to the internal consultation commencing to ensure any possible contamination issues were identified.  Neither party has flagged any relevant issues.  The internal consultation process also provided the Maori Strategy Relations team the opportunity to flag any issue that is of particular relevance to Maori.  No issues were raised.

General

11.     Should a resolution be obtained to dispose of these units, ACPL will investigate options for disposing of these sites in a manner which maximises the potential to achieve an optimal return to our shareholder.

12.     The subject properties do not appear to be subject to Public Works Act 1981 offer back requirements.

13.     These sites are not one of council’s strategic assets to which the Significance Policy applies.

Property information – 5 Rayma Place, Mt Wellington

14.     This site is 420m2 road reserve subject to the Reserves and Domains Act 1953.  This property was acquired in 1962 from a now-defunct company and vested in Auckland City Council as road reserve subject to the Reserves and Domains Act 1953.  The adjoining landowner has encroached on this site by constructing a fence and a minor dwelling that appears to be used as a sleep-out.  In 1993 the adjoining landowner enquired about purchasing this site.  It was determined that this site had no value as recreation reserve and on 28 June 1996 it was reported to Auckland City Council’s Recreation and Community Services Committee, which resolved that council proceed with revocation pursuant to section 24 of the Reserves Act 1977.  The reservation was revoked on 5 December 1996 by way of gazette notice which stated that the proceeds of sale be paid into council’s reserves account to be used towards the improvement of existing reserves or the purchase of new land for reserve.  A valuation of $75,000 was obtained and the property was subsequently offered to the adjoining landowners for that amount.  However the sale was never completed.  Upon transition, this property was transferred to Auckland Transport.  The Auckland Transport Board declared this property surplus to Auckland Transport’s infrastructure requirements in July 2014.

15.     The Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan zoning of this site is Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings.  It has a 2014 rating value of $180,000. 

Internal consultation

16.     The rationalisation process for this property commenced in December 2014.  No alternative uses for this site were identified during this process.  The Heritage Unit was invited prior to the internal consultation process to raise any archaeological issues.  The Closed Landfills and Contaminated Land Response team were also asked to assess this site prior to the internal consultation commencing to ensure any possible contamination issues were identified.  Neither party has flagged any relevant issues.  The internal consultation process also provided the Maori Strategy Relations team the opportunity to flag any issue that is of particular relevance to Maori.  No issues were raised.

General

17.     Should a resolution be obtained to dispose of this site, ACPL (on behalf of the council) will negotiate an agreement to sell the land at current market value to the adjoining owner.  The terms and conditions of the agreement would be approved under the relevant financial delegation.

18.     The subject site is not subject to Public Works Act 1981 offer back requirements.

19.     The subject property is not one of council’s strategic assets to which the Significance Policy applies.

14                                              Draft Auckland Stormwater Network Discharge Consent application

Draft Auckland Stormwater Network Discharge Consent application

 

File No.: CP2015/11587

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To request formal feedback from the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board (the board) on stormwater management priorities as part of consultation on the development of an Auckland wide stormwater network discharge consent, with particular reference to the board area.

Executive Summary

2.       Auckland Council is seeking formal feedback from the board on Council’s application for consent to allow the diversion and discharge of water from the urban public stormwater network (the Network Discharge Consent).  Council is seeking a 35 year, process based, consent as it allows for greater flexibility in managing stormwater issues, such as flooding, stream health and asset maintenance and renewal. The consent will support the implementation of a water sensitive design approach to infrastructure development in Auckland.

3.       This report provides an opportunity for the board to provide input into the consent application, with particular reference to local priorities for stormwater management.

Recommendation

 

Recommendations

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)      receives the Draft Auckland Stormwater Network Discharge Consent application report.

b)      provides feedback on the draft stormwater network discharge consent application, with particular reference to local priorities for stormwater management.

 

Comments

4.       Auckland Council is developing an application for a network discharge consent (NDC) to allow for the diversion and discharge of stormwater from the urban public stormwater infrastructure. The consent will be valid for 35 years with a requirement that it will be reviewed on a six yearly basis. The consent will both guide council’s management of stormwater infrastructure, and address priority issues such as reducing the risk of flooding, improving freshwater quality and managing the stormwater impacts of growth and development. Further information on the NDC is appended as Attachment A.

5.       Through development of the consent a number of stormwater priorities for the local board area have been identified, including potentially critical pipes that require investigation, growth priority areas to be supported to achieve water sensitive design and issues relating to stream and catchment health. These stormwater priorities are described in more detail in the report below and in the table appended at Attachment B. This table also shows the targets for stormwater management and how priorities for action in the local board area relate to these.

6.       This report provides an opportunity for the board to provide input into the consent application, with particular reference to local priorities for stormwater management. Paragraphs 7 to 15 below suggest three questions which may guide how the board frames its feedback alongside comments noted by stormwater, and the board at a workshop in May 2015.

7.       Question 1: Does the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board have any comments on the proposed framework of the Auckland-wide Stormwater Network Discharge Consent?

8.       As a reminder it is proposed that the consent be processed based, with the following key elements to address the seven stormwater issues (flooding, coastal health, stream health; growth, wastewater, asset management; groundwater health:

·        Identification of regional priority areas

·        “Business as usual” processes.

·        Setting of objectives, outcomes and targets, as well as associated six yearly reviews

9.       Attachment B summarises what the above elements will mean for the management of stormwater infrastructure within the board area.  This table identifies how the stream subcatchments within the board area have been ranked within the regional prioritisation for each stormwater issue.  Identified high priority areas will be the focus of further investigation and assessment for future infrastructure upgrades and projects. 

10.     The board may wish to comment on the proposed duration (35 years) of the consent, or any of the proposed performance measures and targets.

11.     Question 2: Is there any feedback the board would like to provide relating to the management of the public stormwater network?

12.     The following comments and questions were raised by the board at a workshop in May 2015:

·        When are watercourse management plans (WMPs) planned for streams on the Onehunga side of the board area?  The stormwater officer has obtained the following information after the workshop: 16 catchments across the region that previously had no watercourse assessments are programmed to be completed in the near future, based on growth areas.  For the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board area these include Mt Wellington South, One Tree Hill (in process), Onehunga, and Otahuhu East (in process).  Information on stream health collected during stream walks in other parts of the board area is appended as Attachment C.           

·        The board supports retro-fitting for onsite stormwater management.

·        The board is being asked to provide landowner consent for pipes / connections across parks. What are the mechanisms so that the local board can encourage homebuilders to talk to their neighbours regarding managing stormwater differently?  The stormwater officer has obtained the following information after the workshop: there appears to be no clear rules on this matter, and given the ad hoc nature of development, is a difficult to manage.  Further discussions on this issue will be held with parks, regulatory and engineering and technical services staff. Stormwater will also raise this with Council’s Chief Engineer to see if the Code of Practice can provide some guidance but each application will need to be considered separately in the interim and on its merits \.

13.     Question 3: Are there any initiatives relating to stormwater management that the board is investigating, in addition to those identified in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan?

14.     For reference, the following initiatives were identified in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board Plan relating to improving stream and coastal health:

·        Promote ways to recognise and respond to the challenges of climate change and mitigate against its effects

·        Implement the Greenways Plan

·        Continue riparian planting and enhancement projects to improve water quality of our most degraded streams and waterways.

·        Advocate and provide advice for ecological restoration along the water’s edge as part of transport projects, i.e. East-West Connections.

·        Facilitate access to land for community restoration activities and support initiatives to encourage and inform local communities about planting native vegetation on private land.

·        Continue to work with businesses, industry, the community and Māori on ecological restoration projects.

·        Work with community and key stakeholders on water use efficiency and stormwater management

·        Advocate for the development of a Manukau Harbour Marine Spatial Plan to determine the harbour’s future management.

·        Work with local business and industry to deliver environmental initiatives such as waterway restoration and pollution source control.

·        Advocate for hydrodynamic modelling of the Manukau Harbour. The Manukau Harbour Forum has identified this as a key regional project to enhance understanding of the harbour and progress the proposed marine spatial plan.

·        Continue to develop facilities and amenities as identified in the Panmure Basin Management Plan.

15.     The following comments were also made by the board during the 12 May workshop:

·        Update on pipe being constructed through Waikaraka Park, as the Board is looking to redevelop. The stormwater unit officer stated that an options assessment is still being completed.

·        Captain Springs Reserve, Hornes Lane near Arthur Street and Beachcroft Reserve all areas of interest to the Board.

·        Requirement for stormwater input into the Panmure Basin Management Plan.

16.     This information will be passed to waterways planning specialists within the stormwater unit for further assessment, as well as other Council units supporting the delivery of environmental outcomes. It is noted that the Parks and Environmental Services units are actively supporting a number of the above projects, such as the Manukau Harbour Forum and the board-funded stream restoration and water sensitive design projects.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

17.     This report asks for formal feedback from the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board on stormwater management priorities for their local area.

18.     As described above, this network discharge consent has been shaped by feedback given by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board and others on the Greater Manukau Consolidated Receiving Environment.

Māori impact statement

19.     Stormwater and environmental management have integral links with the mauri of the environment and concepts of kaitiakitanga. Council recognises the significance of stormwater management to mana whenua and mataawaka.

20.     Consultation on this draft NDC is currently being carried out with all mana whenua who have indicated an interest in being involved in this project. Mana whenua have also been consulted on development of the Waitematā Harbour, Manukau Harbour and Great Tāmaki Consolidated Receiving Environment and their feedback has informed this consent.

Implementation

21.     Once consultation on this consent has been completed it will then be finalised and presented to the Regulatory Officers in late 2015. If approved, the consent is likely to become active by mid-2016 and will help to guide stormwater management going forward.

22.     While not all stormwater-related issues can be addressed through the network discharge consent process, any additional feedback on stormwater management the board provides will be provided to the relevant council staff to be addressed in the appropriate fashion.

Panmure Basin Master Plan

 

File No.: CP2015/12999

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of this report is for the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board to approve the final master plan for the Panmure Basin.

Executive Summary

2.       The Panmure Basin Master Plan has been prepared, building on a number of earlier planning documents and consultation with mana whenua, key stakeholders and the local community.

3.       The preparation of the master plan commenced in late 2014 and public consultation on the draft plan was undertaken in March 2015.  The key themes from the consultation included: improvements to water quality, improvements to paths and mixed views on vegetation.  Comments were also received on provision of further recreational facilities, recognition of heritage values and improvements to signage.

4.       The final plan, Attachment A, has been updated to reflect the feedback and includes background information on the site and contains a number of actions to enhance the natural, cultural and recreational values of the park and basin.  It is envisaged these will be implemented over the next five to ten years as funding is available.

Recommendation

 

Recommendation/s

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)      Adopt the final Panmure Basin Master Plan.

b)      Consider the implementation of the Panmure Basin Master Plan, following review of the renewals programme and timing of other projects committed in the area, utilising the Long Term Plan $850,000 growth funding dedicated to Panmure Basin and other appropriate funding streams.

 

Comments

5.       Panmure Basin is a key public open space providing passive and active recreation for park users. Over the years a number of planning documents have been prepared for the basin, including: the Panmure Basin Recreation Precinct work undertaken by LA4 Landscape Architects in 2002 and the Tāmaki Waterways Concept Plan prepared in March 2013.  In addition works have been underway to replace the Jubilee Bridge and update the Panmure Basin Fitness Trail.  During the consultation on the fitness trail upgrade in early 2014, there were a range of requests from the community for improvements to the wider basin area

6.       The master plan provided an opportunity to review these earlier documents, to determine what actions were still outstanding and whether these were still relevant and reflect the communities’ aspirations for this important space; as well as recognise these more current projects. 

7.       The preparation of the master plan commenced in late 2014.  Importantly mana whenua were consulted early in the process and made a significant contribution to the plan providing background on Te Kai ā hiku (the Panmure Basin, the food guardian) and a cultural values matrix which will be an important planning tool as the master plan is implemented.

8.       Public consultation on the master plan commenced on 8 March at the Panmure Basin Fun Day with council staff and local board members manning a display of the draft plans.  Information about the consultation process was provided on the Shape Auckland website and the local board’s webpage which included an online survey.  Copies of the plans and survey were also available at the Panmure Library.  Posters and flyers requesting feedback on the master plan were also placed around the basin and in the key facilities and library.

9.       The master plan includes the following:

·        Background information / Introduction

·        History and Cultural Significance / Te Aranga Design Principles Matrix

·        Mana Whenua, Heritage and Culture Plan

·        Natural Environment Plan

·        Park Assets, Access and Amenities Plan

·        Panmure Basin Aerial

·        Ireland Road Entrance / Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club

·        Lagoon Drive Entrance

·        Peterson Road Entrance / Peterson Reserve

10.     Council received 32 responses to the request for feedback on the master plan.  The predominant themes in the feedback were to address water quality and improve the tracks around the basin. 

11.     Improving water quality was supported by 40% of respondents.  The plan proposes strategies to improve water quality will include; wetland implementation, swales and upgrading storm water pipes. The Stormwater team has recently undertaken a survey of all outfalls in the basin and consideration should be given to undertaking a Watercourse Assessment.  Information from these documents will assist to determine the appropriate responses in the detailed design phase of relevant projects, including all renewals.

12.     The Stormwater Team also suggested the potential to undertake an educational programme focusing on business owners to reduce pollutants entering the basin.

13.     Improvements to the tracks were supported by 37% of respondents.  An area of the McCullough Walkway, between Lagoon Drive and Ireland Road is up for renewal this year.  This renewal will also involve a range of root bridging techniques to protect the tree roots that have been cracking the path.  The other area identified as needing attention was below the Waipuna Hotel.  It is proposed that the track be widened to address the pinch points by the stairs down to the basin. 

14.     While 70% of the feedback mentioned planting in some form, this included a wide range of opinions on whether there should be more trees, more vegetation management, or no further planting.  Panmure Basin has been identified in the Ecological restoration priorities on local parks within Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board 2012 as a priority area for restorative work.

15.     Feedback on the vegetation included support for more weed control, replacing aging trees, using natives rather than exotics, managing the mangroves, providing more shade and ensuring view shafts into and across the basin and sightlines along the walkway were maintained.  Due to the opposition to the proposal to plant pohutukawa in the open space area by properties along Ireland Road, this has been removed from the plan, along with the suggestion to develop picnic facilities in this area.

16.     There was support shown by a number of respondents to providing picnic facilities by the Cleary Road playground and Petersen Road train facility, as well as further seating and drinking fountains around the basin.

17.     Respondents also acknowledged the need to protect the basin’s heritage sites and showed support for the proposal to develop a heritage trail.

18.     As a result of feedback on the current signage around the basin it is proposed a signage audit be undertaken to review the effectiveness of existing signs and advise where these should be replaced and where new signs are required, including entrance and directional signs.  This will need to cover dog bylaws, alcohol bans and “no fishing” where appropriate. 

19.     Following the consultation on the draft master plan an intercept survey was conducted at Panmure Basin.  This was arranged by Local and Sports Parks (LSP) to improve their understanding of the experience of visitors within its parks.  At a high level, parks customer information is currently collected for the Long Term Plan monitoring purposes via an annual telephone survey.  To supplement this information a number of park-specific surveys have been carried out.  At Panmure Basin 350 users were surveyed between 17 April and 6 May 2015.  In addition to questions around visitor demographics and satisfaction the survey also touched on how the park could be improved.  Refer to Attachment B for a report summarising the responses to this intercept survey.

20.     Interestingly the feedback from this survey supports many of the actions included in the master plan.  The exception to this is that the intercept survey’s most requested area of improvement was to lighting and safety.  This was mentioned by sixteen percent of the survey respondents and only mentioned by a couple of those responding to the master plan. A review of the current lightning system could be undertaken to determine, with assistance from the Crime Prevention through Environment Design (CPTED) team, whether the hours of operation are appropriate (lights are turned on between 5.30am – 8.00am and then 5.30pm – 10.00pm) and whether improvements could be made to the positioning of the light stands or dissipation of light to ensure good coverage of the paths.  This could also review the car parking areas.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

21.     The local board has supported the preparation of this master plan through allocating SLIPS funding to the project.  Prior to the draft plan being prepared the scope of the project was confirmed with the Parks Portfolio Holder.  Members of the board were also involved in the two site visits with iwi in late 2014 and early 2015 prior to the preparation of the draft plan.  Feedback and amendments to the draft plan were discussed at a meeting with the Local Board Chair and the Parks Portfolio Holder on 11 May 2015 and discussed further at a local board workshop on 30 June 2015.

Māori impact statement

22.     All iwi with an interest in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board area were advised of this project on 17 October 2014.  These included Te Runanga o Ngāti Whātua, Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki, Ngāti Tamaoho, Ngāti Te Ata Waiohua, Te Akitai Waiohua, Ngāti Paoa, Ngāti Whanaunga, Ngāti Maru, Ngāti Tamaterā and Te Patukirikiri.  They were all contacted again on 26 November to determine their interest in the preparation of the concept plan.

23.     Five iwi then expressed an interest in the project and were involved in site visits held on 18 December 2014 and 28 January 2015 and a workshop on 17 February 2015 to work through the engagement process.  These included Ngāti Paoa, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki, Ngāti Tamaoho and Ngāti Maru.  They provided an outline of mana whenua’s connections to the land, and the value and significance of the basin along with a cultural values matrix based on the Te Aranga Māori Design Values and Principles.  Their key aspirations were to see improved water quality in the basin, greater weed control, and protection and recognition of culturally significant sites.     

Implementation

24.     This report is seeking approval of the master plan.  The timing of the plan’s implementation will be impacted by the renewals programme, the implementation of other projects in the area, such as AMETI, and the available funding streams.

25.     The renewals programme will be addressing the surface of the Ireland Road car park and, as mentioned above, the section of the McCullock Walkway in this financial year.  Timing the delivery of adjacent or associated improvements with these and future renewal works will assist to reduce overall costs of the plan’s implementation and potentially reduce the impacts or disruption to the users of the basin. 

26.     Growth funding of $850,000 over the next three years has been allocated to the Panmure Basin in the Long Term Plan.   In addition to this other funding streams, such as ecological restoration funding, may be utilised to deliver the wide range of projects envisaged in the master plan.  In addition the potential to utilise the Mt Wellington Licensing Trust and the Panmure Basin Advisory Group to support the delivery of projects should be explored. 

27.     A very rough estimate of costs to deliver the master plan has been prepared by the Design Team which suggests a budget in the vicinity of $2.675M will be required, over and above what will be funded by the renewals programme, to deliver the actions in the plan.

28.     A basic breakdown of these estimated costs is as follows:

          Capex projects

·        Ireland Road car park pedestrian access link ($72.2k)

·        Ireland Road extended deck around clubhouse and beach re-sanding ($423k)

·        Lagoon Drive entrance improvements and facilities ($71k)

·        Pedersen Road maximising grass / picnic area by jetty and new path ($35k)

·        Pedersen Road car park improvements including rain-gardens (80% of costs expected to be covered by renewals)  ($228.5k)

·        Widen path near Waipuna Hotel ($115.5k),

·        Development of natural play elements ($60k)

·        Heritage Trail ($56k)

·        Provide more park furniture ($46k),

·        Signage strategy ($40k)

·        New planting and bank stabilisation works around the basin ($611.2k)

Total = $1,758,400

Opex projects:

·        Address water quality (unknown – estimate 120k),

·        Preparation  of vegetation plan ($8K)

·        Ireland Road improvements to planting ($17k)

·        Pedersen Road weed removal, infill planting and tree removal (92k) Weed control, infill planting, crown lifting of trees and mangrove management around other areas of  the basin ($610.2k)

Total = $847,200

29.     Of note is these estimates do not cover the costs of any works in the AT Ireland Rd road reserve, the potential expansion of the boat storage facilities, the upgrade of the skate park, development of a new entrance by the Jubilee Bridge, building removal, geotechnical survey, developing a lighting strategy and tree succession plan or addressing encroachments.

30.     A further report will be provided to the local board to outline the implementation plan once this has been reviewed in context of the renewals programme, timing of other projects being delivered in the area and possible sources of funding.

Auckland Transport Monthly Update Report - July 2015

 

File No.: CP2015/13312

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       The purpose of the report is to respond to Local Board requests on transport-related matters and to provide information to Elected Members about Auckland Transport (AT) activities in the Local Board area since the last transport report.

Executive Summary

2.       A meeting with the Transport Portfolio deputy lead was held on 8 June.  Items for discussion included:

·        Double Decker bus route from Botany to City Centre (Workshop 14 July)

·        East West connections announcement

·        Barrack Road and Bertrand Street works and Malone Road works (begun in June)

·        Van Dammes Lagoon

·        Various other transport matters

3.       A discussion was also held in June with the transport portfolio leads and the Chair on projects for the Transport Capital Fund.

Recommendation

 

Recommendation/s

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)      receives the report.

b)      agrees that the financial allocation for the Beachcroft Avenue project be extended to $360,000.

c)      seeks a rough order of costs from Auckland Transport for a lighting improvement, including design and construction in the carpark at Mayfair Place, Glen Innes.

d)      seeks advice and a  rough of order of costs from Auckland Transport to deliver tetra traps to the next priority of catchment areas indicated in the Local Board’s 2013 GHD study.

 

Reporting Back

Consultation Report

4.       No consultations have been forwarded to the Local Board for comment in the last reporting period.

AMETI Update

5.       Work on preparation of the documents for Stage 2a (Panmure to Pakuranga) improvements is continuing.  These improvements include a new busway from Panmure to Pakuranga, a new busway bridge, replacement of the Panmure roundabout with an signalized intersection and separated cycling and walking facilities. The Notice of Requirement for this section is expected to be lodged with Auckland Council over the next month with public consultation following on from that in due course.

6.       Discussions with Kiwi Income Property Trust Limited regarding the new bus station are continuing, along with the preparation of Notice of Requirement documentation.

7.       AT can now confirm that it has budget in the 2015/16 financial year to undertake the landscape plan and car park (118 Mt Wellington Highway) works at Van Dammes Lagoon.

8.       This project is expected to go to tender in late July/August 2015 and once the tender is awarded, it is anticipated that construction would then be able to start in October when the earthworks season commences.

9.       An October 2015 construction commencement date would allow a handover to Auckland Council Parks in early December 2015. The planting will be undertaken during the recommended season for the specified species.

Local Board Capital Projects

10.     The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board has access to the Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF) for the construction of transport related projects in its area. This fund is administered by Auckland Transport.  Each year, the Local Board’s allocation is $494,757 and this amount can be accumulated within each electoral term. 

11.     At the time of writing Maungakiekie-Tāmaki’s unspent LBTFC budget for the current electoral term was $1.183 million.  This has been allocated to the Onehunga Mall project, the Princes Street pedestrian refuge and the Beachcroft Avenue improvement, leaving a balance of $259,000 uncommitted.

12.     As the design for the Beachcroft Avenue improvements nears completion it is now clear that Auckland Transport’s firm estimate of costs for the full project (Options 1 and 4) will exceed the Local Board’s initial envelope allocation of $280,000. Direction from the Local Board at a recent discussion was that the project should proceed in its entirety, rather than endeavouring to seek savings to keep within the current envelope. Therefore Auckland Transport requests that the Local Board increase the budget allocation for the Beachcroft Avenue project to $360,000.  

13.     Once this funding is confirmed, Auckland Transport expects that the project should proceed to tender in the next month with the aim of it being completed in line with the Onehunga Foreshore project.

14.     This would leave $179,000 from the Local Board’s current allocation uncommitted.

15.     Glen Innes Business Association has commented on the poor quality of the lighting in Mayfair Place, Glen Innes.  As this area is deemed “carpark”, this area is not high on AT’s list for improvement.  If supported by the Local Board, this could be a worthwhile project to make improvements to the Glen Innes business area.  AT would be pleased to provide a rough order of costs for the Local Board to consider and to meet with the Local Board on site to discuss the scope of the lighting project.

16.     The Local Board can also allocate up to $494,757 from the LBTCF in the 2016/17 financial year. 

17.     In 2013, the Local Board supported the installation of tetra traps in the priority catchments of Panmure Basin, Captain Springs Reserve and Bycroft Reserve. If the Local Board wished to continue with the roll-out of the tetra traps programme, a lead-in time of eight months would be necessary.

18.     If an extension to the tetra trap programme was supported by the Local Board, a rough order of costs could be provided together with advice on the next priority of catchments \ for tetra traps installation. Any outstanding budget from this electoral term could be used, and in addition, some budget from the next financial year could be anticipated to cover the extent of the project that the Local Board felt comfortable authorizing that.

Update on the Delivery of Current  Transport Capital Projects

19.     The Princes Street Pedestrian Refuge is still outstanding, however the lighting issues have been worked through and the project is expected to be contracted out for a late July or early August start.

Project

Resolution

Update

Onehunga Mall Upgrade Progress

April 2014 :

c) allocates $645,000 from the Board’s 2014-2017 Transport Capital Fund.

 

May 2015

Updates to the LB are being managed by Auckland Council who are leading the upgrade project. Detailed design is expected to be completed by June and construction is due to be completed by November 2015.

Beachcroft Avenue Pedestrian Improvements

March 2015:

c) authorises Auckland Transport to proceed with Option 1 and 4 for Beachcroft Avenue – Princes Street pedestrian improvement at a cost of up to $280,000 subject to consultation with adjacent landowners and further investigation of the need to relocate services, noting that if detailed design and costing is greater than the allocated amount this will come back to the board in a further report.

 

May 2015

A project manager has been appointed to this project and he has appointed a consultant to undertake design work. 

A meeting with an affected landowner has been arranged to discuss the project.

 

 

June 2015

The meeting with the affected landowner was very positive. The Local Board confirmed the preference for the design by the Beachcroft/Church Street roundabout to be to construct a new 3m wide shared path cutting across the existing grass berm on the corner,  removing the existing footpath and replacing it with grass berm. The project team is now working up some firm cost estimates to come back to the Local Board. 

 

 

July 2015

The completed design work has indicated some extension to the budget is necessary. This is discussed above.

East West Connections

20.     This project aims to provide road connections between SH20 and SH1 to improve traffic flow, particularly for heavy trucks. The southern component of the project seeks to provide improved bus travel and cycling connections between Mangere and Otahuhu Town Centres and Sylvia Park.

21.     NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Transport announced their preferred options for connections in the Onehunga and Penrose areas and for bus priority and associated cycle improvements in the Mangere, Otahuhu and Sylvia Park areas.

22.     The proposed Onehunga and Penrose connections consist of a new road along the foreshore with connections into the Onehunga/Penrose freight hub, improvements to the Neilson Street/Onehunga Mall intersection, upgrading Neilson Street and improving the Neilson Street interchange with widening of both SH 20 and SH 1. The proposal also allows for a new cycleway, a road over the railway line connecting into Great South Road and widening of Sylvia Park Road and ramps onto SH1.

23.     This proposal is expected to deliver:

·        an improvement in travel times and travel time reliability between businesses in the Onehunga-Penrose industrial area and State Highways 1 and 20.

·        An improvement in safety and accessibility for cycling and walking between Mangere Bridge, Onehunga and Sylvia Park.

·        An improvement in journey time reliability for buses between SH20 and Onehunga Town Centre.

24.     The improvements proposed between Mangere, Otahuhu and Sylvia Park will include bus, truck and transit lanes, cycling and walking improvements and bus stop improvements.

25.     Bus priority lanes will be installed on the approach to a number of intersections on Massey Road, Station Road, Atkinson Avenue and Mt Wellington Highway. A combined bus and truck lane is proposed for Walmsley Road and for some parts of Massey Road.

26.     Benefits include improved travel times and journey time reliability for buses between Mangere, Otahuhu and Sylvia Park; an improvement in safety and accessibility for cycling and walking between Mangere, Otahuhu and Sylvia Park and an improvement in safety and accessibility for public transport users.

Links to Glen Innes Station – Phase 1

27.     This is part of an NZTA/AT initiative to align public transport hubs with employment and education centres and other key destinations and as such has attracted funding from NZTA’s Urban Cycleway programme. This project replaces the Pt England to Panmure cycling project.

28.     The new project covers the following routes (Attachment 1):

·        Separated cycleways or shared paths along Merton Rd, Apirana Ave, Pilkington Rd, and Jellicoe Rd to proceed as planned in the original project

·        Intersection improvements for cyclists and pedestrians at Pilkington Road / Tripoli Road / Apirana Avenue, Apirana Avenue / Merton Road, and Merton / Morrin Road roundabouts.

·        Extension of cycle lanes along Point England Rd are tentatively to proceed, pending further investigation.

29.     Phase two is expected to extend the improvements into the Stonefields area.

30.     AT will engage with the public over the proposed routes and their treatments and how they fit into the wider network of cycle improvements such as the Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive project, the AMETI cycling and walking improvements and the Local Board funded greenways routes.

 

Auckland Transport News

Travelwise update and school awards

31.     The Travelwise programme is an innovative schools-based programme that aims to improve road safety and achieve a reduction in the number of vehicles driving to and from school at peak times. It does this through encouraging and increasing alternative modes of travel, and providing safer facilities for all road users.

32.     There are currently 408 schools on the Travelwise programme.  At those schools, Auckland Transport supports activities and events, helps with policies and systems, promotes road safety for children and drivers, offers scooter and cycle training, and runs Back to School and Slow Down promotions.  Most of the schools have student groups who help with running the programme as well as a Lead Teacher who is the central point of contact for Auckland Transport.

33.     Since its inception in 2005, Travelwise has achieved the following results:

·        There are approximately 202,000 students involved in the programme

·        75% of all Auckland school aged students attend a Travelwise School

34.     Safe School Travel Plans have helped:

·        Reduce car travel by taking 12,736 car trips off the road in the morning peak

·        Save 2,596,000kms in car travel, over $20.3 million a year on congestion, and about 150,000 litres of fuel

·        Reduce CO2 emissions by 735 tonnes each year

·        Improve safety around Auckland schools – crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists aged 5 to 13 have reduced by 58% at schools with Safe School Travel Plans.

35.     The schools listed below have been awarded for their outstanding Travelwise achievements in 2014.  The awards are based on four criteria:

·        Mode share shift from when the school first starts as a Travelwise School

·        Their inclusion of road safety and active travel in the curriculum

·        The efforts to involve the school community in road safety and mode share

·        The inclusion of these matters in the ethos and organisation of the school.

 

36.     If a school is high achieving in all of these areas they are awarded Gold (e.g. mode shift of more than 4%), medium achievement is awarded Silver, and medium to low achievement is awarded Bronze.

37.     Award winners in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board area were:

Gold award winners

Silver award winners

Bronze award winners

·      Royal Oak Primary School

·      Glenbrae Primary School

·      Panama Road School

·      St Mary’s School (Ellerslie)

·      Glen Taylor School

·      Sylvia Park School

·      Ellerslie School

·      Glen Innes Primary School

·      Panmure District School

·      St Joseph’s School (Onehunga)

38.     In previous years, a celebration has been planned near the end of the financial year, and the awards given out related to the previous school year. This year Auckland Transport is looking to plan an event for the end of Term 4 to celebrate 2015 Travelwise achievements following feedback from schools that they would prefer to receive their awards in the same school year as the results are achieved.

Cycling News

39.     Cycling in Auckland has had a boost with the announcement of the urban cycleway fund.  This fund will help to accelerate delivery of sections of the Auckland Cycle Network with new infrastructure and improve existing facilities.

40.     Although the proposed improvements are heavily focused on the central area, two projects in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board area will benefit. 

41.     The Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive shared pathway will provide a safer and more direct route for people to cycle from the Eastern suburbs to the city centre and also a project to improve cycling links to the Glen Innes public transport interchange.  This project will start in July 2015 with Stage 1, subject to the consenting process.

42.     The second project of note in the Local Board area is the Links to Glen Innes Station. These connections will provide local feeder routes from the transport hub to nearby suburbs and school and through to the Auckland Manukau Eastern Transport Initiative (AMETI) area.

Issues Raised through/by Board Members

Location or Name of Issue

Description

 

AT Response

Elstree Avenue

Concern over speeding on Elstree Avenue between Taniwha Street and Pt England Roundabout.  Children are crossing here (walking out from behind parked cars) and there is concern for their safety.

A preliminary site visit was undertaken at the end of March.  AT officers have decided a more detailed investigation is necessary and are carrying out tube counts.  The results of this investigation are expected to be known by early August.

Speeding Issues in Beachcroft Avenue/Church Street

Several car crashes have been reported at the roundabout at the intersection of Beachcroft Avenue and Church Street, with speed being suspected as the main factor.  A request for speed counts at this location has been received.

 

This issue has been logged and is waiting for feedback from AT’s traffic engineer

17                                              Manukau Harbour Forum: Legislative Change Requiring Agreement by Resolution

Manukau Harbour Forum: Legislative Change Requiring Agreement by Resolution

 

File No.: CP2015/11657

 

  

 

Purpose

1.       To request that the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki 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

 

Recommendation/s

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki 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 Maungakiekie-Tāmaki 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 to  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.

Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board

Manukau Harbour Forum Revised Terms of Reference

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-Tāmaki

·        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.

Chairperson's report

Chairperson’s Report Simon Randall: July 2015

Highlights

 

 

Arthur St Onehunga People’s Garden – It was my pleasure to pitch in with a recent weed clearance day at the site. The local community have done an excellent job preparing the site ready for the initial planting in late July. This is a good example of what can be achieved through a community lead local board supported environmental restoration project.

 

Lifewise big sleepout 2015 – It was a good experience to join several other elected members of council in the Big Sleepout this year. This raises awareness and funds for the important work that Lifewise does with homelessness and the homeless. The Local Board Plan highlights the underlying issues that drives homelessness and supports action to adress these. Thanks to everyone who supported me.

 

Matariki Dawn Blessing on Maungakiekie – This was a good opportunity to pause and reflect on the wider significance of Matariki. This even had a good turnout and saw some of the best conditions for some time.
