Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       The Community Facilities department is responsible for the building, maintaining and renewing of all open spaces and community buildings. This includes the community leasing and licensing of council-owned premises.

3.       The Ōrākei Local Board 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme was developed using a combination of local board feedback, staff assessments of assets and key stakeholder input.

4.       The following indicative costs have been identified in the 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme:

I.    $5,039,042 of asset-based services capital funding

II.   $990,000 of locally driven initiatives capital funding

III.  $242,000 of locally driven initiatives operational funding.

5.       The work programme has been developed through a series of iterative workshops between key staff and local boards since October 2017. The programme provided in Attachment A reflects the agreed projects that were presented in the last local board workshop. This report recommends that the board approves the 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme and associated budget.

6.       Once approved by the Ōrākei Local Board, new work will commence from July 2018. Regular updates on the line items will be provided by the Community Facilities’ Stakeholder Advisors.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation

That the Ōrākei Local Board:

a)      approve the Ōrākei Local Board 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme as detailed in Attachment A.

 

Horopaki / Context

7.       Community facilities and open spaces provide important community services to the people of Auckland. They contribute to building strong, healthy, and vibrant communities by providing spaces where Aucklanders can participate in a wide range of social, cultural, art, and recreational activities. These activities improve lifestyles and a sense of belonging and pride amongst residents.

8.       The 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme detailed in Attachment A contains information on all proposed projects to be delivered by Community Facilities, including capital works projects, leasing and operational maintenance.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

Capital works programme

9.       Investment in the capital programme will ensure that council facilities and parks open spaces in Ōrākei Local Board remain valuable and well-maintained community assets that continue to meet the agreed levels of service. Asset-based services capital works includes Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI), renewals and growth and development projects.

 

Locally Driven Initiative

Renewal

Growth and development

Coastal Renewals

Basis for amount of budget allocated to each local board

As per the local board funding policy:

·    90% population

·    5% deprivation

·    5% land.

In proportion to assets in very poor and poor condition requiring renewal, limited to funding available.

To specific projects identified as priority projects to meet the needs of new and future residents.

To specific projects identified as priorities by the coastal specialist team.

Type of projects that can be paid for

Any projects that deliver a council owned asset or as a capital grant to an asset made available for public use.

Renewal of existing assets on a “like for like” basis, taking into account current service standards where applicable.

Development budgets are used for specific projects approved by the Governing Body.

Growth budgets can only be used for specific projects that are required by and benefit new and future residents.

Renewal of and enhancement where required, to existing coastal structures

Degree of local board discretion on allocation to projects

Full discretion

Broad discretion - can be allocated to any renewal project

Limited discretion – must be allocated to the specific project.

Local board discretion on scope and design of project within available budget.

Limited discretion – must be allocated to the specific project for the purpose of protecting our coastal assets.

Please note that coastal renewals projects are allocated regionally.

 

10.     The 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme has been created following a series of workshops with elected members from October 2017 to May 2018. All feedback gathered from the workshops has been taken into consideration throughout the process. The proposed work programme in Attachment A contains:

·        Number of projects: 39

·        Indicative cost for proposed projects: $10,761,990

Leasing work programme

11.     Community leases are a valuable way in which the council provides support to community organisations across the region, commonly on public parks and reserves. These groups provide a wide range of community activities and services aligned with recognised local priorities and are a key part of the mosaic of community activity and infrastructure in Auckland.

12.     The draft work programme provides a detailed list of the community leases and licences that will expire or are due for renewal over the 2018/2019 financial year. It also includes the additional leases and licences that will be deferred from the 2017/2018 financial year to the 2018/2019 financial year.

13.     Once the 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme is approved, staff will be able to consolidate reporting on routine matters or use the streamlined process for straight forward renewals without variations whilst focusing attention on those community leases that are more complex.

Operational maintenance work programme

14.     The regular maintenance of all council-owned built and open space assets plays an important part in:

·        increasing the long-term durability of Community Facilities assets

·        improving the safety of Community Facilities assets

·        ensuring the enjoyment of Community Facilities assets by the users.

15.     Community Facilities launched ‘Project 17’ in July 2017 which created new bundled maintenance contracts across the Auckland region for full facility, ecological restoration and arboriculture maintenance contracts.  The Finance and Performance Committee approved these contracts on 30 March 2017.

16.     In the 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme, there are three line item dedicated to all maintenance in the local board area:

·        Full Facilities Maintenance Contracts – These contracts include all buildings, parks and open space assets, sports fields, coastal management and storm damage

·        Arboriculture Maintenance Contracts – These contracts include all tree management and maintenance

·        Ecological Restoration Maintenance Contracts – These contracts include pest plant and animal pest management within ecologically significant parks and reserves.

17.     Staff will be able to provide regular reporting on maintenance through monthly updates to the local boards and through the quarterly report. Community Facilities is also providing additional weekly updates to all elected members on contractor performance.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe /
Local impacts and local board views

18.     The Community Facilities Work Programme has been created through a combination of local board feedback, asset condition assessments and agreed levels of service.

19.     The draft 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme has been considered by the local board in a series of workshops from October 2017 to May 2018. The views expressed by local board members during the workshop have been adopted in Attachment A.

20.     The Community Facilities work programme supports the achievement of the following 2017 Ōrākei Local Board Plan priorities:

·        A thriving economy which supports local businesses and town centres

·        Our local parks and open space areas are valued and enjoyed

·        Our residents are proud of their community facilities and public places

·        People can move around our area easily and safely

·        The natural environment is valued, protected and enhanced by our communities.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

21.     The 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme ensures that all facilities and open space assets continue to be well-maintained assets that benefit the local community, including Māori. Where any aspects of the proposed work programme are anticipated to have a significant impact on sites of importance to mana whenua then appropriate engagement will be undertaken.

22.     Staff are also attending mana whenua fora on a monthly basis to receive feedback on the 2018/2019 Community Facilities Work Programme.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

23.     The proposed 2018/2019 Community Facilities work programme will see the allocation of $990,000 of the board’s locally driven initiatives capital budget, $5,039,042 of the board’s asset based services capital budget, and $4,490,948 of the board’s asset based operational budget. These amounts can be accommodated within the board’s total draft budget for 2018/2019. As such, the board’s approval will not have significant financial implications unless projects experience a significant overspend or underspend. Regular updates on projects will be provided to the board tracking expenditure and identifying any projects at risk of non-delivery, over or underspend.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

24.     If the proposed Community Facilities work programme is not approved at the business meeting, there is a risk that the proposed projects may not be able to be delivered within the 2018/2019 financial year.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

25.     The work programme will be implemented as part of Community Facilities’ usual business practice.

26.     Work programme implementation will be reported regularly by stakeholder advisors and quarterly through the performance report to the local board.

Board Member Report – Carmel Claridge

 

File No.: CP2018/12654

 

  

 

Purpose of the report

1.       To update the Ōrākei Local Board Members on projects, activities and issues.

 

Recommendations

a)      That the report be received.

b)      That the Board formally endorses its feedback to Auckland Transport on the proposed Polygon – St Heliers Bus Layovers.

 

Portfolio Lead: Transport

Other (alternate portfolio holder): Parks and Reserves, Community Leases

Transport

·        New Bus Network Rollout

There was an attendance of approximately 50 people to the public consultation event Auckland Transport held to help explain the New Network at the St Heliers Library on 26 June. AT has also presented to community groups in the Ward. They have also agreed to attend and present at the Meadowbank St Johns Residents’ Association at their AGM scheduled for Monday 23 July. The new routes will be evaluated at 3,6 and 12 months with a mechanism for people to email their feedback directly to AT via busreview@at.govt.nz.

·        Bus Layover Consultation

Ōrākei Local Board feedback is attached.

·        Ngapipi Road/Tamaki Rd Intersection

Works are complete with the intersection now open for business. Ahead of schedule and under budget these works have been a template for good project management. Also to be commended is the proactive approach Auckland Transport took in keeping stakeholders and interested residents well informed about project progress along the way.

·        Meadowbank Train Station Bus Stop Update

As of 10th July, all required road markings and signage has been installed but not the bus shelter that was included in consultation plans, and the community is expecting. The bus stop directly opposite the Meadowbank Retirement Village is also not yet installed and enquiry has been made of Auckland Transport when this will happen.

·        Meadowbank Rd/St Johns Rd Intersection upgrade

Construction has commenced on these works. A business owner approached me with concerns about the excessive noise from machinery being used to break up the pavement areas. A contact has been provided within AT for her to liaise directly with the project team who have been asked to provide a timeline for her in respect of the works.

·        Broken Yellow Lines Installation Hilltop St & Buttle St

On Monday 2 June I met with 6 residents from Hilltop St and our Auckland Transport Relationship Manager Mel Dale. Residents are dissatisfied with the performance from Enforcement officers who have recently attended the street to assist with illegal parking causing difficulties for residents exiting their driveways. The additional enforcement was in response to the Board’s resolution seeking a solution to the problematic parking. Residents in attendance were able to provide numerous photographs demonstrating the ongoing parking illegality despite extra enforcement measures being taken in the area and they remain highly sceptical that this will result in any significant alleviation of the situation. The preferred option stated remains that what was initially requested – the installation of broken yellow lines along one side of the road. Mel is pursuing the matter with AT engineers to propose a solution in addition to/ or as alternative to, the hockey stick demarking lines on private driveways that is currently being considered. The most recent concession is that Auckland Transport will consider these BYL’s on one side of the street should 100% of residents in the street agree to the installation.

At the time of this report that proposal had yet to be put to all residents and an update on their response will be provided in next month’s report.

·        Ladies Mile Cycleway / Street Safety

There are a number of safety issues on the Ladies Mile stretch that continue to compound as traffic volume increases. Of particular concern to residents is the lack of crossing capacity for children accessing the local Michael Park School near the very busy intersections with Ladies Mile at Pukerangi Crescent and Morrin Rd. These uncontrolled intersections are on reasonably steep terrain and pose visibility issues at night and sunset (particularly facing west exiting Pukerangi which results in significant sunstrike) During peak hour traffic they are becoming problem bottle necks and there is a need to assess this area for potentially a signalized solution to enable better traffic flow and a safe crossing for pedestrians.

·        St Johns Rd Pedestrian Refuges

Auckland Transport have advised that the stretch of St Johns Rd from the Meadowbank Shopping Centre through to Truman St has been assessed as needing an additional 2 pedestrian refuges which are scheduled for their 2019/2020 work programme. Concerned residents have been notified.

·        Meadowbank Rd/St Johns Road Intersection Upgrade

At the time of writing this report the works on this intersection were nearing completion with asphalt being laid on Saturday morning. With workers on site over the weekend it is anticipated all will be finished on schedule ready for the new bus routes on Monday 8 July.

·        Meadowbank Train Station Bus Stop Installation & Parking Reconfiguration

Works continue over the weekend of 7/8 June to have this infrastructure ready for the new route to the station.

·        Problem Intersections

The following intersections have been referenced in emails and calls from constituents over the past six weeks as posing significant safety issues. I will be following up with our AT Relationship Manager to confirm whether or not they have been identified as requiring upgrades, and if so look at options of how work can be brought forward to make improvements.

1.       Morrin Rd/Ladies Mile/Pukerangi Cres

2.       Parsons Rd/Archdall Rd/Gowing Drive

3.       Morrin Rd/Merton Rd

Environment Issues Update:

·        Eastern Songbird Project Update

On Saturday 7 July the Songbird Project team held another ‘free rat trap handout’ event outside Eastridge Shopping Centre 10am – 2pm. By midday approximately 20 traps had been loaned out to members of the public and there was much interest from people passing by. John La Roche has received NZTA approval to install trapping lines in the base of the Pourewa Valley in Selwyn Bush and this was scheduled to be done by the trapping group on Sunday 8 July.

The trapping in the Stonefields is going well with a second line of traps recently installed in the Maungarei Springs Wetland. While not formerly part of the Songbird project all of these sorts of community initiatives work towards the common goal of pest eradication within the Ward and it is great to see them sharing information and supporting each other.

·        Tamaki Estuary Environment Forum

On Friday 22 June I was elected Co-Chairman of the Tamaki Estuary Environment Forum. I will be sharing the role with my fellow Chairman Julie Chambers. The Forum agreed that the Chair role should be shared by one Local Board Member and one community representative. Julie will be acting as spokesperson for the Forum, and facilitating community outreach and My role with be focussed on ensuring good governance procedures are followed by the groups and assisting with aligning the Group’s activities and aspirations with Local Board outcomes. The Forum will continue to meet bi-monthly. (see attached minutes TEEF Meeting 22 June 2018).

Board Member Report - Troy Churton

 

File No.: CP2018/12551

 

  

 

Purpose of the report

1.       To update the Ōrākei Local Board Members on projects, activities and issues since the last meeting.

 

Recommendation

a)      That the report be received.

 

Portfolio Lead: Resource Consenting and Regulatory

Other (alternate portfolio holder):  Environment and Heritage

Snapshot of Planning and Regulatory Matters

Regulatory and Resource Management Act

2.       Updated ‘special circumstances’ basis for notifying Ōrākei Point development – advised Board members regarding their effects-based views or not. Relayed further information requests to planners, liaised with concerned locals.

·        Pursued Infringement and Assessment information for development at 11 Paora Road, Ōrākei

·        Comments to planners for residential developments at 53 Tarawera Terrace, 10A Hopkins Crescent, 16 Rangitoto Avenue and others

·        Referring certain residential matters to Colin and David, namely updates on notification application by Rawhiti Retirement Village (care facility) developers to demolish a character home on Ara Street and erect a 4-apartment development proposing it to be integrated to the adjacent village/care development

·        Liaised with Chair, Regulatory Committee regarding Board inputs for Dog Review process

·        Fielded calls from constituents regarding development activities in Kohimarama, Kepa Road.

Aviation and Cumulative

3.       It concerns me to learn that the Police have posted a RFT on GETS seeking a tender to supply the Eagle Helicopter services, and that the measure includes doing 3300 hours of flight time. That amounts to about 9 hours a day if every day was fine-weather for flying. I did not see any criteria regarding how those 3300 hours are linked to incident type, need, etc. I circulated that GETS advert to the Board and Councillor Simpson.

4.       Following some disappointing media distorting the issues involved as being a socio-economic nimby themed matter, I nonetheless have received an overwhelming series of emails from constituents around our Ward and beyond supporting the issues raised about aviation nuisance. Of the 35 emails I have received, 31 expressed support for greater scrutiny of late night helicopter activity.

5.       Some of the comments demonstrating the diversity of issues that are important for those people that expressed support include:

We don't believe the community benefit of having a 24/7 service outweighs the overwhelming nuisance value of the noise.

 

What has been the fiscal cost of the extended operating hours vs the community harm (from criminals) that has been prevented and considering the noise nuisance to the neighborhoods that has been created.

I would bet that a high percentage of the callouts are for things like burglaries, and I know for a fact that the success rate in those cases is very low. I suspect that we who are paying for this service would find the flight log information VERY enlightening.

One of my first social media posts was about how the Auckland helicopters were the loudest in the world!!!

Honestly, I would rather get burgled (and yes, I have been burgled before) than have a   helicopter waking me every damned night. For me, the Police helicopter has destroyed  peaceful suburban living in Auckland. If I didn't have family reasons for staying, I would have left for this reason alone.

I totally agree with you 100%. I am forever woken up by the sound of The Eagle in the middle of the night!!! Keep doing what you are doing.

A big part of the issue is they are not abiding by CAA rules. Minimum height over built up areas is 1,000 ft and they transit from the harbour, where min height is 500ft, at way less than that. It’s a lot bigger problem than it was 3 years ago.

I am a pilot myself and always like to see aircraft overhead but am now being frequently disturbed by the police’s loud turbine helicopter in the middle of the night.

It appears that there is little correlation between serious crimes in our neighbourhood and the helicopter flying low circuits and hovering frequently at night.

In addition to the noise nuisance, the cost is a big issue for turbine helicopter operations. I suspect it is in the thousands of dollars per flight hour.

Eagle should be based at Penrose Heliport at Miami Pde or Akld airport, in this day and age no need for Police copter as rest of world using Drones as shown in BBC series Hunted UK.

Police helicopters appear to frequently ignore departure protocol, altitude and noise abatement as recorded below.

There is a balance needed between residential noise nuisance, and reasonable crimefighting. Heliport noise during the past summer has been particularly intrusive.

I am writing to express my support for a reduction of the flying hours for the Police helicopter in Auckland, back to pre-2017 levels.

I do not believe that a proper cost-benefit analysis that incorporated community consultation was undertaken for a change in flying hours.

Ongoing sleep deprivation can cause work accidents, as well as serious chronic health problems, and the choice to fly around between 2am and 5am is guaranteed to wake people up at a time that they cannot easily fall asleep again, as this is the time their cortisol levels begin to rise naturally to assist awakening in the morning.

Board Member Report - Colin Davis

 

File No.: CP2018/12649

 

  

 

Purpose of the report

1.       To update the Ōrākei Local Board Members on projects, activities and issues since last reported.

 

Recommendations

a)      That the report be received.

b)      That the Ōrākei Local Board’s further feedback on a resource consent application for a retirement village at 188-226 St Johns Road and 55-57 Ripon Crescent, St Johns, be formally endorsed.

Other (alternate portfolio holder): Environment; Resource Consenting and Regulatory

Arts

On 15 June 2017 the Board approved the arts, community and events work programme, which included $20,000 for a utility box artwork programme. Draft designs, approved by the Board, have been done for a site in Mission Bay, and four of the five boxes in the St Heliers Village, as a place-making project. Additional funding has been allocated from the St Heliers Village Association for the St Heliers project. Painting on one of the smaller boxes at St Heliers is underway, although not entirely to the approved design, and work on the other smaller one is yet to be started by the same artist. Painting of the images on the two larger boxes by another artist is yet to be done. Regrettably, progress has not been at all satisfactory.

Heritage

(1)     Tamaki Drive Searchlights

The new information sign, installed on the Tamaki Drive seawall opposite the searchlight emplacements, has created interest in the searchlights. Recently, l showed the Mayor the sign and briefed him on the project. I have met with the project manager and the consultant architect to progress this project. Discussion centred on the means of enclosing the emplacements in a way that enhances the structures while also preventing unauthorised use and to reduce debris. One of the creative solutions being advanced is to replicate an image of a searchlight and soldier on the metal shutter of one of the emplacements. It is important that all three emplacements are restored at the same time rather than be spread over different financial years. Funding, which may need to be supplemented, has been provided in this financial year’s budget. There has been enough delay.

(2)     Heritage Projects

(i)      The new inventory of sites of heritage significance in the Board’s area has been distributed to our two libraries and staff. It is planned that this document will be on the Board’s website and regularly updated with any new material.

 

(ii)      I have been working with Watercare to erect an information sign on the local reserve at Whakatakataka Bay, Ngapipi Road, adjacent to the 20m sealed section of the former Hobson Bay pipeline, which was kept as a piece of engineering heritage. The illustrated sign has been prepared and will soon be erected on site.

 

(iii)     Restoration of the World Wars One and Two war memorial avenue of trees along Glover Road adjacent to Glover Park has been completed. The two memorial plaques have been cleaned and are now legible. Unrelated work was carried out on renewing the kerbing and spot re-sowing the berms. 63 titoki trees were originally planted in 1953 as a memorial for those from the district who were killed in the two wars. It would be fitting, given the status of the little recognised war memorial, that a re-dedication service be held at a future appropriate date.

   

(iv)    A revision of the Board’s WWI Roll of Honour has been completed with the addition of many new names and information. I have added a new section to include the various Rolls of Honour and memorials associated with the Board’s area. This will added significantly to our recorded heritage. Lack of typing resource has now delayed the project. When completed, the new comprehensive Roll will be unique as a local board heritage document.     

 

(v)     There has been no update by the Heritage unit on proposed work to restore the rare 90-year old heritage ventilation pipe in the St Heliers commercial area. It had been intended that this work would be done at the same time as the utility box artwork project.

 

(vi)    Approved signage is to be installed on the Stonefields Heritage Trail. I have finalised the revised signage for the Kepa Bush Reserve. New signage for Hakumau Reserve, Tamaki Drive, with funding authorised by the Board on 19 April, has not been installed as the design and text are yet to be approved.

 

(vii)    On 15 February the Board resolved to submit the Stonefields Heritage Trail as an entry for the Local Government New Zealand Excellence Award for Environmental Impact and/or Best Creative Place categories. Despite a well documented and prepared entry, the Board was unsuccessful.

Reports in Progress and Submissions

(i)      In January I had re-drafted a Revised Standing Orders of the Ōrākei Local Board of the Auckland Council. The current set the Board uses was approved by the Transition Authority in 2010. Board members were not impressed with a new draft proposed by Council staff last year. My re-draft is still with officers for review before consideration by members at a workshop.

 

(ii)      The Tamaki Drive Precinct Events Guidelines was adopted by the Board on 15 March, subject to a couple of amendments. The only outstanding change was to update the signage section, as resolved by the Board. I had re-written the text for that section and made the consequential changes to the illustrations. These have now been agreed with staff and are incorporated in the final document. The process to get the document to this point has taken over two years. I presume the events team, ATEED and Auckland Transport are now operating under the adopted Guidelines, which is expected to be added to the Board’s website.

 

(iii)     Presentation of the Board’s submission to the Planning Commissioners relating to the proposed retirement village development in St Johns Road, was done on 18 June. This submission had been formally endorsed by the Board on 15 February. The Board’s presentation paper was formally endorsed by the Board on 21 June. At the hearing the Board was given an opportunity to file additional written comment on the Reply Submissions of the Applicant’s Counsel who had undertaken to provide the hearing with a summary of the chronology of the retirement village zone, the zoning of the St Johns site, and examples of retirement villages already consented to under the Unitary Plan. The opportunity was taken up by the Board and I filed the Board’s further written feedback, which is attached to this report for formal endorsement. 

 

(iv)    I am concerned at the lack of progress with making the Board’s Progress and Achievements Report for the period 1 July 2016 to 31 December 2017, formally approved by the Board at its business meeting on 15 March 2018, more readily and widely available. It is still with Communications and Marketing for glossing prior to publication. The document which is a Board resolution and simply needed covers, was in effect published as part of the Board’s proceedings.   

Board’s New Offices, St Johns Road

It is with some personal satisfaction that the Board will have new premises in St Johns Road, Meadowbank. After eight years the Board finally has reasonable premises befitting the role of a local board of the Auckland Council. As the then Board Chairman actively engaged in securing these premises, I believe it is appropriate and worthwhile to record the lead up to the change in premises for future reference.

In the latter months of 2017 the Board was informally advised that the Council’s lease of the former cramped shop premises in the Meadowbank Mall would be terminating at the end of January 2018. No alternative appropriate premises had by then been sourced. The shop premises were not satisfactory for a number of reasons. Once the Board was informed the hunt began in earnest for suitable premises.

It must be said that it was difficult and challenging to find a suitable location and premises that met the Board’s and constituents’ requirements in an area where there are very limited options available. Eventually the property at 25 St Johns Road was preferred as generally meeting our requirements: centrally located within the Board’s electoral area, better visibility (being on a major road instead of being in a mall, with adequate provision for signage), ease of access for constituents, on a transport route, on-site parking, sufficient and adequate space for meetings and workshops, reasonable working conditions for support staff, with the added opportunity for more Council customer services to be offered at the site. In this regard, the Board is mindful that the Chief Executive has signalled that over the next few years there will be a significant change in the way Council services will be offered with the hub and spokes model.

In the short term, while lease details and renovations and fit-out were finalised by Panuku Development Auckland and the Council’s corporate property team respectively, the Board temporarily re-located its offices to 135 Albert Street, the Council’s headquarters. Because it was important that the Board maintained a presence within its electoral area, it had a branch office at the Ōrākei Community Centre with a customer services representative, where the public could meet Board members by appointment, and meetings could be held.

As required by the Governing Body’s policy and implemented by the Chief Executive, all new projects are to have a cultural ceremony by local iwi before use. Accordingly, a ceremony will take place at dawn on 16 July, before the new Board office is officially is open for business.

Activities (since 10 June 2018)

As well as assisting with a range of citizens’ enquiries, attending meetings, and involvement with other community activities, I have also attended the following to date:

11 June a meeting of the Auckland Library Heritage Trust, of which I am Chairman.

12 June the Commission for Financial Capability, formerly the Retirement Commission, Summit at Auckland, at which I was interviewed individually and as part of a panel. This conference was promoted as a practical demonstration of the National Strategy and a way for government, community, NGOs, and the private sector to work together and share ideas in the complex job of building financial capability throughout the country.

12 June with Board member Rundle, a meeting with the St Heliers Business Association executive, regarding the effects of the new local bus service and consequent loss of parking for the village.  

14 June with the Chairman, a meeting with Sport Auckland, regarding proposed sporting initiatives.

14 June the Ōrākei Local Board workshop various topics.

16 June the St Heliers Bowling Club’s AGM.

16 June the Matariki dinner at Sacred Heart College.

17 June a meeting with Board member Wong to finalise the Board’s feedback on a resource consent application for a retirement village at 188-226 St Johns Road and 55-57 Ripon Crescent, St Johns.

18 June with the Chairman and Board member Wong, presented the Board’s submissions to the Planning Commissioners re the above resource consent application.

18 June a meeting with the Chairman and Deputy Chair regarding the agenda for the Board’s business meeting.

19 June the community facilities monthly portfolio briefing.

22 June the on-site meeting with representatives of the St Heliers Business Association, the St Heliers/Glendowie Residents Association, and Auckland Transport, regarding practical solutions to minimise the loss of parking resulting from the new bus services. The previously reserved on-street parking for Police vehicles has now become public parking and works will be done in Polygon Road to restore a couple of spaces which would have been lost. Interestingly, this solution was discussed at the same place with the same organisations nearly ten years ago. Also raised was the possibility of reconfiguring the bus stop outside the hall at the intersection of Polygon Road and Turua Street, to improve public visibility and safety.

25 June a meeting of the Council’s Quality Advice Political Advisory Group, of which I am a member.

25 June a meeting to finalise the long-awaited Tamaki Drive Precinct Event Guidelines.

26 June a meeting of the Mayor’s WWI Memorial Advisory Group, of which I am a member.

26 June briefly the meeting regarding the East City Stadium.

26 June the AT public information session at the St Heliers Library re the new bus routes.

26 June a meeting with the Chairman and a constituent regarding ways to reduce the use of plastic bags, plastic straws, etc.

29 June a meeting with the Strategic Broker, Community Empowerment, the Remuera Library manager, representatives of the Auckland Justices of the Peace Association Council, to finalise the re-location of the Justice of the Peace services to the Remuera Library. This will support the desirability of both our libraries – St Heliers and Remuera – offering the same services to the community, including the services of Justices of the Peace.

29 June the ribbon-cutting, and official launch of the new bus services in the Board’s area.

4 July a meeting regarding The Landing.

Civil Defence and Emergency Management meeting 30 May

2.       Auckland Council Civil Defence and Emergency Management staff took a workshop with OLB.  The key outcome which our community need to work towards is a Resilient Recovery Strategy.

4 R’s: Reduction, Readiness, Response and Recovery

Questions which staff need to present and answer are:

·        It would also be beneficial if individuals and groups within our communities could answer these questions …

·        What are the strengths, priorities and vulnerabilities of our communities?

·        How well do our communities know the risks they may face?

·        Who are the other community influencers we should be aware of?

·        What do we need to know about how our community works?

Recommendations:

I.     That Auckland Council work with Vector, MBIE and Government to facilitate the relevant legislation changes to enable Vector to have access to private smart meters in times of Emergencies.

II.    That Auckland Council implement a project management schedule to check ALL trees under their jurisdiction asap.  The current situation could hold Council liable for severe damage and loss of life and limb.

Plastic Bag usage must drop

3.       New Zealanders use approximately 1.6 million plastic bags. 

We need to say ‘bags not’ to single use plastic bags.

Paths in Parks need Maintenance – otherwise these assets will revert muddy open ground

4.       Churchill Park Paths are getting washed away by the torrential downpours of rain.  Paths in other parks need to have an eye kept on them.

5.       The torrential rain washes away the gravel on paths…the gravel ends up in massive heaps at the bottom of the park, alongside the waterway. The paths do not have culverts dug on each side to allow runoff to be carried to the stream below.  These need to reinstated asap.

6.       That Auckland Council work with Vector, MBIE and Government to facilitate the relevant legislation changes to enable Vector to have access to private smart meters in times of Emergencies.

7.       That Auckland Council implement a project management schedule to check ALL trees under their jurisdiction asap.  The current situation could hold Council liable for severe damage and loss of life and limb.

8.       That the paths in Churchill Park are remediated with a permanent fix asap.

Parks Maintenance needs to include undergrowth throughout parks

9.       A clean up at Tahuna Torea on 8 July by the Rotary Club of St Johns Inc found 6 or more big black bags full of rubbish.  There was an alarming number of syringes and needles.

10.     These items present a real hazard, especially to children playing.

Recommendation:

Staff need to undertake a careful audit of rubbish in parks, especially during school holidays.

July 1st saw the process for the Ōrākei Business Awards kick off.

Businesses and the general public are asked to nominate businesses with the Ward boundaries.

There are 6 categories, retail, hospitality – licenced and non-licenced, recreation, health and beauty and business and professional services.

Mission Bay Business Association

Discussion relating to the Auckland Transport

1.         Parking consultation – this was going to take place at the St Heliers Library but the meeting was advised that the consultation will take place at Movenpick corner of Tamaki.

2.         A response was received from AT regarding the suggestion that the streetscape planting be denser to discourage the pedestrians crossing Tamaki Drive especially on the Eastern end of Mission Bay.  It was noted in the response that 42% of pedestrians cross along Tamaki Drive (not at the pedestrian crossing).  The Association is trying to ensure that safety is premium for their customers and suggesting to AT that the small flaxes be removed and denser planting be considered along the new streetscape section.  The Association will respond to the AT response.

3.         Tree lighting maintenance issues continuing with Deco Lighting.

4.         There will be 6 new security cameras installed in Mission Bay.
