Proposed Open Space Plan Change to the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) - Tamaki Regeneration Area

 

Resolution number MT/2018/117

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson D Burrows, seconded by Member M Meredith: 

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)         endorse the proposed Open Space Plan Change to rezone land associated with the reserves identified in the table below and notes that these proposals will achieve higher quality, safer and better connected open spaces;

b)        offers the following additional feedback on the proposed plan change:

 

i)          note our strong support for rezoning of residential land at Taniwha Street to             Open   Space - Informal Recreation, as this will enable us to achieve better             outcomes for Maybury Reserve;

 

ii)         notes that the proposal for land exchanges at Taniwha Reserve will enable a             greenways link path to be implemented and increase safety by providing             better surveillance into this park;

 

iii)        notes that whilst the local board undertook in our Local Board Plan 2017 to             champion the retention of our parks and other open spaces in all areas with             new developments, there is no available budgets for acquisition of land and             therefore land exchanges offer us an opportunity to realize better utilization             and outcomes for our existing reserves;

iv)        notes that land at Boundary Reserve proposed to be exchanged is a small part             of this reserve and is currently underutilized. The loss of the section proposed can be mitigated. Development provides passive surveillance into this park which improves perceptions of safety about the park in            general as well as the proposed future greenways path that will go through    this reserve;

 

v)         notes that Tamaki Regeneration Company expects equivalent land to be             exchanged and we invite them to discuss options for addressing the             shortfall in this proposal before any further land exchanges/plan changes             are lodged;

 

vi)        notes that this process will include public consultation and requests officers             to prepare and execute a communication and engagement plan to ensure             our community is made fully aware of the consultation opportunity and             encourage them to have their say.
