File No.: CP2018/15706

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

Horopaki / Context

4.       This report addresses transport related matters in the local board area and includes information on the status of the LBTCF.

5.       Auckland Transport is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways.  It reports on a monthly basis to local boards, as set out in the Local Board Engagement Plan. This monthly reporting supports the important engagement role local boards play within and on behalf of their local communities on transport matters. 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF)

6.       The LBTCF is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by Auckland Transport. Local boards can use this fund to deliver transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of Auckland Transport’s work programme. Projects must also:

·        be safe

·        not impede network efficiency

·        be in the road corridor (although projects running through parks can be considered if there is a transport outcome).

7.       Through the Long-term Plan, local boards have had an increase in funding for their LBTCF. This has increased the total funding available to all 21 local boards to $20.8million per annum.

8.       The allocation for the Papakura Local Board has also increased, with the updated figures for the remainder of this electoral term reflected in Table 1 below:

Table 1: Papakura Local Board Transport Capital Fund Financial Summary

Total Funds Available in current political term

$2,082,843

Amount committed to date on projects approved for design and/or construction

Responses to resolutions

Bus Lane/ T2-3 Great South Road, Takanini

10.     The local board’s resolution from the August Papakura Local Board meeting stated their preference for:

i)       T2/T3 lanes in Great South Road, Takanini

ii)     cycle lane removed from the road carriageway

iii)    for parking restrictions to be during peak hours only.

This information has been noted and referred to the Auckland Transport project team for consideration.  Auckland Transport is currently reviewing options and cost implications.

Bellfield Subdivision signalisation

11.     Auckland Transport notes the Papakura Local Board’s request for Auckland Transport to organise a public meeting to discuss the proposed signalisation of the Bellfield Road / Taonui Street / Great South Road intersection.

12.     Auckland Transport has provided advice on this request. Signalising this intersection was a decision made during Auckland Council’s consent process for the sub-division of the Special Housing Area (SHA) called Opaheke 1 Precinct. 

13.     The legal situation is simple.  Auckland Transport has no legal mandate to change this decision.  Further to this, Auckland Transport was not the legal entity that made this decision so is not able to legitimately comment on the reasoning for the decision.

14.     Full details of the consent including the independently produced ‘Integrated Transportation Assessment’  (like all resource consents) is publically available including the rationale for decisions. The attached information has been provided for your assistance:

·   Attachment A_I454 Opaheke 1 Precinct Plan Rules

·   Attachment B_‘Integrated Transportation Assessment Report’ prepared by TDG, dated June 2016 and referenced 12799-6 160627

·   Attachment C_Precinct Plan.

15.     In summary, the decision to signalise was made by Auckland Council and if the Papakura Local Board wishes to organise a public meeting then this request needs to be addressed to that organisation.

Pararekau Road

16.     AT notes the Papakura Local Board’s concern about the ongoing delays to the reinstatement of Pararekau Road and the inconvenience to local residents.  Currently Auckland Transport’s Strategy Team is developing a response. When this is finalised and signed off by senior management, the information will be circulated to elected members.

Bottletop Bay boat ramp

17.     Representatives from Auckland Council, New Zealand Police and Auckland Transport met with residents of Oakland Road who are concerned about community safety issues related to the boat ramp at Bottletop Bay.

18.     The legal framework regarding maintenance of access to a legal road at all times was discussed with residents at the meeting.  A road cannot legally be blocked or closed with a gate or chains for any significant period of time. 


 

19.     Other potential options to address community safety issues were discussed including establishment of a local Crimewatch group, reinstatement of an alcohol ban, increased site visits by Police and community safety groups and an investigation of formally closing the road and transferring ownership to Auckland Council which would allow gating.

20.     The discussion was well received, and follow up with local residents will take place over the next month to determine what support is required.

21.     A request by the Papakura Local Board to investigate maintenance and renewal opportunities for Bottletop Bay has been referred to Auckland Council.

  Local Board Advocacy

22.     This section provides a regular report about how Auckland Transport is supporting the Papakura Local Board’s advocacy initiatives as recorded in the Papakura Local Board Plan.  The Papakura Local Board’s advocacy initiatives from the 2016-19 term are outlined  in table 3 below.

Other Auckland Transport news

Supporting Growth Programme

23.     The Future Urban Land Supply Strategy confirmed the need to accommodate up to 400,000 residents in future urban areas.

24.     The Auckland Transport Alignment Project (ATAP) identified approximately $10 billion of transport infrastructure to support this growth.

25.     The New Zealand Transport Agency, Auckland Council and Auckland Transport approved the Supporting Growth Programme Business Case in 2016 and future work programme to protect corridors and nodes.

26.     The main growth areas looked at by the programme include Drury, Hingaia and further south the Paerata and Pukekohe areas. This growth will significantly impact Papakura because it is a junction for various modes of transport including rail and new rail stations, roading via Mill Road, State Highway 1 and to the north, the related Airport to Botany Rapid Transit link.

27.     Consultation on the Supporting Growth Programme is open from the 10 September to 10 October 2018.

Takanini Train Station Platform upgrades

28.     An upgrade to the Takanini and Te Mahia train stations commenced 30 March 2018. The works will bring platform amenity at Takanini and Te Mahia stations into line with other stations on the Auckland Transport rail network.

29.     Changes include improving drainage on the platform, new lighting, CCTV and installation of new shelters.

30.     The past month saw the installation of the frames for the shelters and new light masts.  Completion of the upgrade is expected January 2019.

Electronic Gating Project – Papakura train station

31.     Auckland Transport is nearing the completion of the first stage of a region-wide programme to install electronic ticket gates at selected stations on the rail network including the Papakura train station.

32.     Delays in the programme have resulted in the gating at the Papakura train station now expected to be operational by January 2019. See table 4 below:

Papakura Park & Ride & Bus Interchange

33.     This project is delivering a multi-storey park-and-ride alongside an expanded bus interchange adjoining the Papakura train station.

34.     This project is included in the Auckland RLTP (2018-2028), with $12 million allocated for the Park and Ride in years 2018-2020. A further $6 million identified for the bus station interchange development is currently unfunded.


 

35.     Auckland Transport has procured a professional services supplier to complete the business case for the park and ride and bus interchange. A recommendation for a preferred development option that allows AT to seek NZTA funding for final design and construction is expected to in December 2018.

Takanini Park & Ride

36.     Auckland Transport plans to develop Takanini into a formal park and ride, but could not confirm lease terms until the transfer of land between Crown agencies had concluded.

37.     Auckland Transport secured the lease earlier this year, with planning and design now underway to develop the land around the Takanini Station into a park and ride.

38.     Detailed design is now complete and the project is currently under review by KiwiRail, and expected to conclude at the end of September 2018.

39.     Some issues have been identified which will increase the costs and timeline, including disposal of contaminated soil and Auckland’s busy construction market making procurement of contractors difficult. Work is expected to be completed before March 2019.

Safer Communities Project

40.     Papakura is one of three trial locations for the Safer Communities Project, which seeks to improve road safety in communities and promote active modes of transport by improving pedestrian infrastructure.

41.     Initial community consultation was held October 2017 and this feedback was used to develop a priority list of projects to improve the ‘walkability’ in and around Papakura including the town centre.

42.     Further refinement of the feedback was undertaken earlier this year and included targeted engagement with the Papakura Local Board, Papakura Commercial Group, the Integrated Area Plan team for Manurewa, Takanini and Papakura, the Park & Ride project team and Auckland Council’s Parks team. 

43.     At the request of elected members, further engagement was undertaken with the stakeholder group from the Papakura Commercial Group to provide initial feedback on the various proposed improvements. This engagement meeting was held on 5 September 2018, with a further meeting to be organised to review the outcome of the traffic modeling.

44.     Once the priorities are finalised, further public consultation will take place. A final review will be undertaken with a list of priority projects confirmed and handed over for delivery to Auckland Transport’s operational teams over the next 2 years.

Investigations into pedestrian safety measures

45.     At the request of the Papakura Local Board, Auckland Transport is investigating the feasibility of installing pedestrian safety measures to allow pedestrians to cross the eastern side of the Settlement Road/Marne Road roundabout.

46.     Auckland Transport undertook investigation and preliminary design for the roundabout and a report to the local board was due this month.

47.     The report has been delayed as this location has now been included in the Safer Communities project which is undertaking traffic modelling of the surrounding areas to confirm opportunities for diverting through traffic from the main town centre.

48.     The project aims to increase pedestrian levels of service along Settlement Road, which requires further investigation including alternative options for the Marne/Settlement intersection.

Residential Speed Management - Rosehill, Papakura

49.     Auckland Transport is undertaking a project to deliver road safety improvements on local streets in Rosehill to make a safer environment for all road users including pedestrians and people on bikes.

50.     The target area is bounded by Chichester Drive, Park Estate Road, Rosehill Drive, and the side streets leading off Great South Road.

51.     These improvements will include speed-calming measures such as speed humps, raised tables (some may have zebra crossings on them), and raised intersections.

52.     Rosehill was prioritised for road safety improvements based on a number of reasons such as safety concerns raised by local residents, local crash data, vehicle speeds on Rosehill streets and the location of community facilities including schools.

53.     Auckland Transport has also prioritised other locations in Papakura for making walking improvements as part of the Safer Communities project.

54.     Over the next few months, AT will be undertaking public consultation.

Pathway through Central Park

55.     The Papakura Local Board requested that AT and Auckland Council’s Community Facilities department obtain a rough order of costs for the development of a pathway with lighting from Railway Street West through Central Park to King Edward Road in Papakura.

56.     Auckland Council Parks, Sports and Recreation Department has confirmed support in principle for the installation of a shared path through Central Park. AT has received a rough order of cost of $300,000 to provide a 3 metre wide shared path with associated lighting as specified by the local board.

57.     A workshop will be held with the Papakura Local Board to consider this option.

Funding for The Corner

 

File No.: CP2018/17168

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To approve funding for The Corner youth-led creative space, from November 2018 until 31 October 2019.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       The Papakura Local Board funded a six-month trial of a youth-led creative space activating an empty shop in the Papakura town centre. The Corner opened at 85 O’Shannessey Street, Papakura in May 2018, led by The Creative Souls Project (Creative Souls) and is staffed by local young people.

3.       The trial cost $75,000, funded through the Locally Driven Initiative budget (LDI) lines of youth initiatives and town centre placemaking.

4.       The trial is due to conclude in November 2018 and its progress and development has been reviewed by staff. In its first three months, the project has achieved well against the prescribed outcomes.

5.       Staff recommend that the local board allocate $72,100 towards the continuation of The Corner for a further 12 months. This will be funded from existing budget allocations - $43,000 from youth initiatives and $29,100 from town centre placemaking.

6.       This funding will allow The Corner to operate for 20 hours per week.

7.       Staff will work with Creative Souls to seek additional external funding to enable additional operations at The Corner.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      approve $72,100 to fund The Corner for a minimum of 20 hours per week from the following existing budget lines:

i)     $43,000 from youth initiatives

ii)    $29,100 from town centre placemaking.

b)      note that staff will work with Creative Souls to seek additional external funding to enable additional operations at The Corner.

 

 

Horopaki / Context

8.       The Papakura Local Board funded a six-month trial of a youth-led creative space activating an empty shop in the Papakura town centre. The Corner opened at 85 O’Shannessey Street, Papakura in May 2018 and is managed by Creative Souls.

9.       The Corner received more than 1,000 visits in the first three months of opening, hosting regular events such as classes, workshops, community group gatherings, meetings and mentoring sessions.

10.     Four local young people are employed to manage The Corner and are mentored in everyday decision-making and creative mediums to develop the programming and the experience at  The Corner.

11.     Creative Souls have met all deliverables for the project and The Corner has received favourable feedback. The Corner is having a positive impact primarily with young people in Papakura and is bringing the wider community together.

12.     Funding for the initial trial totalled $75,000. This included the lease, utilities and fit-out of the shop, wages and mentoring for the young people, programme materials and resources, and coordination and management.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

13.     The total cost of operating The Corner for 12 months is $118,260. This amount would enable a minimum of 40 hours per week but exceeds the budget allocation available. A reduced service model of a minimum of 20 hours per week would cost $72,100.

14.     Staff recommend that the Papakura Local Board approves funding of $72,100 for The Corner to continue for a further 12 months, operating at a minimum of 20 hours per week.

15.     This funding will cover the fixed costs of the project, provide security for longer-term planning and enable Creative Souls to seek additional funding from alternative sources.

16.     The objectives for The Corner in 2018/2019 would be to:

·     encourage youth participation in community action

·     increase employment opportunities for youth

·     connect young people to community action and community development through creative mediums

·     showcase works of young artists and creatives in alternative spaces

·     contribute to town centre placemaking initiatives

·     build a sense of pride in the community among young people

·     seek local community management who could potentially take on operational responsibility for The Corner.

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

17.     The following local board outcomes are addressed by this project:

·           A vibrant and prosperous metropolitan centre

·           A strong local economy.

18.     The Innovation Hub Research commissioned by the Papakura Local Board, and the Manurewa, Papakura and Takanini Integrated Area Plan identified that more opportunities for young people to engage in community action were needed in Papakura.

19.     The Corner provides a place where young people continue to have a place to meet, connect and participate in community action and a physical place with a sense of community in the town centre.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

20.     The Corner will continue to develop relationships with local mana whenua and mataawaka groups and include Māori programming.

21.     The Corner currently runs te reo and waiata sessions for pre-schoolers.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

22.     Staff recommend funding The Corner from the following existing LDI budget allocations within the Arts, Community and Events 2018/2019 work programme:

·    $43,000 from work programme line 783 - youth initiatives budget (total of $43,000 available)

·    $29,100 from work programme line 781 - town centre placemaking (total of $43,000 available).

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

23.     If additional external funding is not secured, The Corner will be operational for a minimum of 20 hours per week, which is half as many hours as during the trial period.  This could result in a reduced level of service offering and reduced impact in the community.  Staff will actively support Creative Souls to apply for additional funding to enable the additional operations with a target of minimum 40 hours per week.

24.     Allocating the entire 2018/2019 youth initiatives budget leaves no additional funding available for alternative projects.  However, it is recognised that the programmes and activities at The Corner will contribute strongly to the local board’s desired outcomes for youth.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

25.     Following funding approval, staff will support Creative Souls to apply for additional external funding and will update the local board on progress.

1.       To seek approval for a new road name for a private way created by subdivision at 53 Beach Road, Papakura.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council has road naming guidelines that set out the requirements and criteria for road names.  These requirements and criteria have been applied in this situation to ensure consistency of road naming in Auckland.

4.       Resource consent was granted on 26th July 2017 for the development of the subject site at 53 Beach Road, Papakura to establish 19 dwellings and a new private way, contamination works and subsequent 19 lot fee simple subdivision. A concept plan is included below. 

5.       The Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines allow that where a new road needs to be named as a result of a subdivision or development, the developer shall be given the opportunity of suggesting their preferred new road name for the local board’s approval.

6.       In accordance with the relevant national addressing standard, the private way requires a name as it serves more than 5 lots.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

7.       The applicant’s proposed road names have been assessed against the criteria set out in Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines.

8.       Auckland Council’s road naming criteria typically require that road names reflect:

·      a historical or ancestral linkage to an area;

·      a particular landscape, environment or biodiversity theme or feature; or

·     an existing (or introduced) thematic identity in the area.

9.       The applicant has proposed the following names for consideration for the private way created as part of the development at 53 Beach Road, Papakura. 


 

 

Name

Meaning

Preferred Name

Panahi Lane

Maori name of a native creeping plant with roundish to kidney-shaped, glossy, fleshy leaves on long stalks.  Flowers are large, pale pink and bell shaped, with darker pink bands.  Found on coastal sand and shingle and around some lakes.

First Alternative

Slacks Lane

In 1899 the land to the north of Hingaia Road (then known as Beach Road) was purchased by the Slack family.

Second Alternative

Scotsman Lane

Scotsman Adam Chisholm, the first European to lay claim to Hingaia in December 1844.

                  

10.     The proposed road names all meet the criteria as they are relatively easy to pronounce, spell and write, and there are no existing same road names within Auckland Council’s boundary. Land Information New Zealand have confirmed that the proposed and alternative names are acceptable, and no duplicates exist.

11.     As the applicant’s preferred name Panahi Lane meets the relevant criteria, the preferred name is recommended for consideration for approval while noting that the alternative names proposed and listed in the above table are also appropriate as they also comply with the road naming guidelines.

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

12.     The decision sought for this report does not trigger the Significance Policy and is not considered to have any immediate impact on the community.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

13.     The applicant has corresponded with iwi on the 22nd June 2018 with two responses; one from Lucy Steel of Kaitiaki, agreeing with the proposed road names and the second from Josy Peita of Te Ara Rangatu o Te Iwi o Ngaati Te Ata Waiohua, whom object and comment that they are only in support with Te Reo Maori names in public places, consistent with Auckland Council Maori Language Policy.

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      approve the following road names for the new roads and jointly owned access lots in the subdivision at 64-74 Cosgrave Road, Papakura, in accordance with section 319(1)(j) of the Local Government Act 1974:

iv)      ‘Rōku Place’.

b)      approve the name ‘Bellbird Street’ for the extension of the road through 64-74 Cosgrave Road, Papakura.

 

 

Horopaki / Context

5.       A 162-lot residential subdivision at 64-74 Cosgrave Road was granted in October 2017 (reference BUN60078878). The subdivision will be accessed by three new roads to the west of Cosgrave Road and an extension to the existing road named Bellbird Street, to the west of the site.

6.       In accordance with the national addressing standards, the jointly owned access lots require a name because they serve more than 5 lots.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

7.       Auckland Council’s road naming criteria typically require that road names reflect:

·     a historical or ancestral linkage to an area;

·     a particular landscape, environment or biodiversity theme or feature; or

·     an existing (or introduced) thematic identity in the area.

8.       The applicant has proposed the following names for consideration for the new roads and jointly owned access lots at 64-74 Cosgrave Road, Papakura:

 

Preference

Proposed New Road Name (Road 2)

Meaning

Preferred Name

Minhas Road

The largest Sikh temple in New Zealand is located near the subdivision on Takanini School Road which is highly significant in the neighbourhood. Due to the large Sikh community in the Takanini area, the applicant has proposed the name Minhas, which is a family name of the first Sikh king, and considers this will be of value and significance to the local Sikh community.

First Alternative

Virasat Road

Means “heritage” in Punjabi. This name has also been proposed given the large Punjabi and Sikh community in the area.

Second Alternative

Gurdwara Road

The Punjabi word for a Sikh temple.


 

Preference

Proposed New Road Name (Road 3)

Meaning

Preferred Name

Tumu Road

Māori word for tree stump.

First Alternative

Georgeland Road

The name of the company that is developing the subdivision.

Second Alternative

Shields Road

This name is proposed due to the military’s influence in the area and the site’s proximity to the Papakura army fields, Papakura military camp and the New Zealand Defence Force training facilities.

 

 

Preference

Proposed New Road Name (JOAL 1)

Meaning

Preferred Name

Military Lane

As above.

First Alternative

Trunk Lane

Proposed due to the area’s history of swamp Kauri. Kauri trunks were milled in the subdivision.

Second Alternative

Kirikiti Place

Māori word for “cricket.” This name was chosen given the site’s proximity to the Papakura Cricket Club.

 

 

Preference

Proposed New Road Name (JOAL 2)

Meaning

Preferred Name

Rōku Place

Meaning “log.” Again, because of the history of swamp Kauri.

First Alternative

Karikari Place

Meaning “to dig.” This name is proposed with consideration to the Kauri gum digging history of the area.

Second Alternative

Ahuone Place

Meaning “horticulture.” The surrounding land was used for horticultural activities and palm nurseries. 

 

Proposed New Road Name (Extension)

Reason

Bellbird Street

Extension to the existing road, Bellbird Street.

 

9.       The Addressing Team at Land Information New Zealand has confirmed that all of the proposed names are acceptable and not duplicated.

Local impacts and local board views

12.     The decision sought for this report does not trigger the Significance Policy and is not considered to have any immediate impact on the community.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

13.     The applicant has consulted with local iwi, and responses were received from Ngai Tai ki Tamaki and Ngāti Paoa. Ngai Tai ki Tamaki confirmed that they were happy with the Māori names proposed, but did not comment on the other names. Ngāti Paoa deferred interest to other iwi due to their small cultural interest in the area. No other responses were received.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

14.     The applicant has responsibility for ensuring that appropriate signage is installed accordingly once approval is obtained for the new road names.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

15.     There are no significant risks to council as road naming is a routine part of the subdivision development process with consultation being a key part of the process.

This is mentioned in this report as the applicant seeks to apply the approved name from the 64-74 Cosgrave Road subdivision to the extension of the relevant road at 54 Cosgrave Road.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board:

Horopaki / Context

5.       A 64-lot subdivision of 54 Cosgrave Road was granted in July 2017 (referenced BUN60078649). The subdivision will be accessed from the east by a new road off Cosgrave Road and the extension of a new road off Fernaig Street to the south.

6.       In accordance with the relevant addressing standards the new public road requires a name.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

7.       Auckland Council’s road naming criteria typically require that road names reflect:

·           a historical or ancestral linkage to an area;

·           a particular landscape, environment or biodiversity theme or feature; or

·           an existing (or introduced) thematic identity in the area.

 

8.       The Applicant has proposed the following names for consideration for the new roads at 54 Cosgrave Road, Papakura:

Preference

Proposed New Road Name (Road 1)

Meaning

Preferred Name

Farmland Road

The area used to be predominantly farm land.

First Alternative

Wetland Road

The soils in Takanini and the surrounding land are comprised of peat soils and there are a number of wetlands in the area.

Second Alternative

Flat Road

Proposed given the flat topography of the Takanini area.

 

Proposed New Road Name (Extension)

Meaning

Minhas Road

The largest sikh temple in New Zealand is located near the subdivision on Takanini School Road which is highly significant in the neighbourhood. Due to the large sikh community in the Takanini area, the applicant has proposed the name Minhas, which is a family name of the first Sikh king, and considers this will be of value and significance to the local sikh community.

 

9.       The Addressing team at Land Information New Zealand has confirmed that all of the proposed names are acceptable and not duplicated.

10.     The proposed suffix of ‘road’ is deemed acceptable as it accurately describes the characteristics of the new road, being an open ended roadway.

11.     The road names proposed by the applicant in the table above are deemed to meet the road naming guidelines.

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

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

13.     The applicant sent an extensive list of names to local iwi groups for this subdivision and the neighbouring subdivision at 64-74 Cosgrave Road. Responses were received from Ngai Tai ki Tamaki and Ngati Paoa. Ngati Paoa deferred interest to other local iwi.

14.     Ngai Tai ki Tamaki confirmed that the proposed Māori names on the list were acceptable but did not suggest that the other names ‘Farmland Road,’ ‘Wetland Road’ and ‘Flat Road’, were unacceptable. Staff have therefore deferred to the developer’s preferred names.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

15.     The applicant has responsibility for ensuring that appropriate signage will be installed accordingly once approval is obtained for the new road name.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

16.     There are no significant risks to council as road naming is a routine part of the subdivision development process with consultation being a key part of the process.

Road Name Removal in the Golden Harbour Development Limited subdivision at 35 Hayfield Way, Hingaia

 

File No.: CP2018/16026

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval to revoke the approved road name ‘Koiora Street’ for the road created by way of subdivision at 29 and 35 Hayfield Way. The road lies along the shared boundary of 29 and 35 Hayfield Way and has been inadvertently named by both applicants of each subdivision.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council has road naming guidelines that set out the requirements and criteria for road names.  These requirements and criteria have been applied in this situation to ensure consistency of road naming in Auckland.

3.       The name ‘Koiora Street’ was approved at the Papakura Local Board meeting on 2 July 2018 (resolution number: PPK/2018/113) and the name ‘Vespa Street’ was approved for the same road at the Papakura Local Board meeting on 23 May 2018 (resolution number: PPK/2018/79). The agent dealing with 35 Hayfield Way pointed out this error and has confirmed that the applicant is happy to rescind the name ‘Koiora Street’ in order to resolve the issue. The applicant of 29 Hayfield Way was unable to be contacted. 

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board pursuant to section 319(1)(j) of the Local Government Act 1974:

a)      agree to partially rescind resolution number PPK/2018/113 in relation to the road name ‘Koiora Street,’ retaining the street name Vespa Street, which was approved on 23rd May 2018 (resolution number PPK/2018/79).

b)      note the following street names approved in resolution PPK/2018/113 remain unchanged: ‘Toporoa Street,’ ‘Songline Road’ and ‘Gingernut Place’.

 

 

Horopaki / Context

4.       A 79 lot residential subdivision with two super lots and two jointly owned access lots has been approved at 35 Hayfield Way, Hingaia (the council reference is BUN60077934,  SUB60242764 and LUC60127866). The subdivision involved the creation of four new roads, which have been named. The applicant seeks to rescind the name ‘Koiora Street’ approved by the local board on 2nd July 2018 (resolution number PPK/2018/113).

5.       Resource consent was issued in June 2017 for a 50-lot subdivision of the adjoining site, 29 Hayfield Way. The subdivision will be accessed from new roads from Hayfield Way. Road 1 shown in figure 2 below was named ‘Vespa Street’ as approved by the local board on 23rd May 2018 (resolution number PPK/2018/79).


 

6.       Figures one and two illustrate the approved road names at 29 and 35 Hayfield Way.

Figure One: Subdivision scheme plan of 35 Hayfield Way, showing the approved name ‘Koiora Street.’

Figure Two: Subdivision scheme plan of 29 Hayfield Way. Road 1 is the same road shown as Koiora Street in figure one. The name ‘Vespa Street’ was approved for Road 1 at the local board meeting on 23rd May.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

7.       As this proposal does not involve any new road names, an assessment against the criteria set out in the Auckland Council road naming guidelines is not necessary, although it should be noted that the final decision as to which road name is to be retained, ‘Vespa Street’ or ‘Koiora Street’, lies with local board

8.       The applicant has requested that ‘Koiora Street’ is rescinded, which is considered to be the most appropriate resolution, given that the applicant for 29 Hayfield Way was unable to be contacted.

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

9.       The decision sought from the Papakura Local Board for this report does not trigger the  Significance Policy and is not considered to have any immediate impact on the community.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

10.     The decision sought from the Papakura Local Board on this report is linked to the Auckland Plan Outcome, “A Maori identity that is Auckland’s point of difference in the world”. The use of Maori names for roads, buildings and other public places is an opportunity to publicly demonstrate Maori identity.

11.     Again, because the proposal is not to name a new road, but simply to remove a previously approved road, iwi consultation is not necessary.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

12.     The cost of processing the approval of the proposed new road name and any installation of road name signage is recoverable in accordance with council’s administrative charges.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

13.     The decision sought from the Papakura Local Board for this report is not considered to have any legal or legislative implications.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

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

papakura- pahurehure inlet,Pahurehure Inlet, PapakuraSix-monthly report to 
Papakura Local Board 
1 January – 30 June 2018


 


1.0 Introduction

This report provides the Papakura Local Board with highlights of ATEED’s activities in the Papakura Local Board area for the six months 1 January to 30 June 2018.

 

This report should be read in conjunction with ATEED’s Quarter 3 report to Auckland Council (available at www.aucklandnz.com) and the forthcoming Quarter 4 report to the Auckland Council CCO Finance and Performance Committee (available September 2018). Although these reports focus primarily on the breadth of ATEED’s work at a regional level, much of the work highlighted has significant local impact. 

 

ATEED’s Strategic Framework

 

ATEED’s Strategic Framework (Figure 1 below), clearly articulates ATEED’s role in enabling Auckland to be a world-class city where talent wants to live, by focussing on five key priorities:

1.       Grow the visitor economy

2.       Build a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship

3.       Attract business and investment

4.       Grow and attract skilled talent

5.       Build Auckland’s global identity.

 

Through these objectives, we can connect Auckland-wide strategies (the Auckland Plan and Economic Development Strategy) and ATEED’s ongoing strategic interventions, growth programmes and projects.  The framework below provides the organisation with focus on those areas of our role that will make a difference to Auckland, both regionally and locally. The key strategic objectives are supported by more detailed action plans, investment proposals and delivery partnerships.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Figure 1 – ATEED’s Strategic Framework (2017-20)

ATEED works with local boards, Council and CCOs to support decision-making on local economic growth, and facilitates or co-ordinates the delivery of local economic development activity. ATEED ensures that the regional activities that ATEED leads or delivers are fully leveraged to support local economic growth and employment. This includes ATEED’s support for sub-regional tourism promotion activity and sponsorship, facilitation or delivery of a range of events that, although regional in their reach, have an impact at a local level.

 

In addition, ATEED’s dedicated Local Economic Development (LED) team works with local boards who allocate locally-driven initiatives (LDI) budget to economic development activities. The LED team delivers a range of services[1] such as the development of proposals, including feasibility studies that enable local boards to directly fund or otherwise advocate for the implementation of local initiatives.

 

ATEED delivers its services at the local level through business hubs based in the north, west and south of the region, as well as its central office at 139 Quay Street. ATEED’s hub in south Auckland is located at 31-33 Manukau Station Road, Manukau, Auckland.

 

The primary point of contact for the Papakura Local Board is Paul Robinson, Local Economic Growth Manager (paul.robinson@aucklandnz.com).

 

Additional information about ATEED’s role and activities can be found at www.aucklandnz.com/ateed

2.0    Papakura Local Board priority economic growth initiatives

The Local Economic Development team at ATEED is responsible for managing the delivery of the Local Board’s locally-driven initiatives’ budget allocation. This includes the following projects that are reported via the quarterly Local Board work programme[2].

 

Commercial Project Group implementation

During the 2017/18 financial year, work in the Local Board area has included:

1.   Town centre health check studies (commercial property study and the Buzz Channel visitor survey)

2.   Key messages for Papakura

3.   Consultant support (research and project management) for the commercial property group.


The Commercial property study was completed in February, with the Buzz Channel survey work and key messages being completed in June 2018.

 

Business Improvement District (BID) top-up

The remaining budget of $15,000 was identified to assist the Takanini Business Association in the instance that they were to pursue a BID establishment process in the financial year. However, Auckland Council's BID team advised that the Takanini Business Association was not able to meet the BID establishment criteria, and therefore did not require the grant funding from the Local Board. The remaining $15,000 was therefore remain unspent.

 

2.1    ATEED engagement with Papakura Local Board

During the period, ATEED provided a range of advice and information to local boards covering local economic development and tourism initiatives to support their preparations and planning for the Long Term Plan. Councillors have been working through the Long Term Plan, particularly gaining agreement on key items that will be included in the public consultation. ATEED also introduced the Destination Strategy to Councillors at an Environment and Community Committee.

3.0     Build a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship


1.            3.1 Supporting business growth

2.             

3.            ATEED’s Business and Enterprise team members are based in local business hubs in Henderson, Takapuna, Manukau and the CBD. Their role is to support the growth of Auckland’s key internationally competitive sectors and support the innovation ecosystem, by assisting small-to-medium companies to grow and innovate.

4.             

5.            A key programme in achieving this is central government’s Regional Business Partnership Network (RBPN). This is delivered by ATEED’s nine Business and Innovation Advisors (BIA), whose role is to connect local businesses to resources, experts and services in innovation, R&D, business growth and management. 

6.             

7.            ATEED’s BIAs engage 1:1 with businesses through a discovery meeting to understand their challenges, gather key data, and provide connections / recommendations via an action plan.

8.             

9.            Where businesses qualify (meet the programme criteria and/or align to ATEED’s purpose as defined in the SOI) the advisors facilitate government support to qualifying businesses, in the form of:

1.   Callaghan Innovation R&D grants (including Getting Started, project and student grants (https://www.callaghaninnovation.govt.nz/grants)

2.   Callaghan Innovation subsidised programmes

10.        (https://www.callaghaninnovation.govt.nz/innovation-skills)

3.   RBPN business capability voucher (NZTE), where the business owner may be issued co-funding up to $5,000 per annum for business training via registered service providers. Voucher co-funding is prioritised to businesses accessing this service for the first time.

4.   NZTE services such as Export Essentials (https://workshop.exportessentials.nz/register/)

 

During the reporting period, ATEED Business and Innovation Advisors met with three businesses in the Papakura Local Board area, one for innovation advice and services and two for business growth and capability advice and services. From these engagements:

·    One business received a Callaghan Innovation R&D grant

·    One business was referred to Callaghan Innovation services and programmes

·    One RBPN voucher was issued to assist with business capability training

·    Two connections were made to NZ Business Mentors

·    Eight connections were made to other businesses or programmes.

 

3.2 Other support for new businesses

During the period, ATEED also ran a number of workshops and events aimed at establishing or growing a new business and the capability within it. Four people from the Papakura Local Board area attended an event below:

·    Starting off Right workshop - 2

·    Business clinic - 2.

 

ATEED also supports and runs business and networking events to support and grow businesses. During the period 1 January to 30 June, approximately 675 attendees from across the Auckland region attended networking events.


4.0     Attract business and investment

11.           

12.          Filming activity within the Papakura Local Board area

13.           

ATEED’s Screen Auckland team provides film facilitation services as part of ATEED’s support for the screen and digital sector of Auckland’s economy. Screen Auckland facilitates, processes and issues film permits for filming activity in public open space. This activity supports local businesses and employment, as well as providing a revenue stream to local boards for the use of local parks.

 

Auckland's screen production sector became a billion-dollar industry for the first time in 2017, according to Statistics New Zealand's latest annual industry economic data  which shows it earned more than $1.1 billion in gross revenue. The numbers reflect Auckland's burgeoning international reputation as a feature film destination, with a 37 per cent increase on the already strong gross revenue contribution from feature film production/post-production – to nearly $490 million.

 

Auckland also cemented its status in 2017 as the country's dominant location for television production, with $420m (or 90 per cent) of the national gross revenue from television commercial production/post-production earned in the region. Auckland earned $121m (or 84 per cent) of the country's television series production/post-production gross revenue.

 

Between 1 January and 30 June, a total of 298 film permits[3] were issued in the Auckland region, one of these permits was issued in the Papakura Local Board area. Brokenwood, Fresh Eggs and The Bad seed are three drama projects alone that represent 760 jobs in the television and support sector. During the same period the previous year, 301 film permits were issued in the Auckland region.

 

5.0    Grow and retain skilled talent

5.1 Growing youth entrepreneurship

On 1 January 2018, the Auckland Chamber of Commerce became the new delivery partner for the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES). ATEED maintains a strategic role.

 

ATEED has delivered YES across Auckland on behalf of the Young Enterprise Trust. The scheme encourages year 12 and 13 students to embrace innovation and business by forming a legal company to produce and sell real-life goods and services.

 

There are 56 schools participating in the Auckland YES programme for 2018, representing 1,343 students completing the programme. There are currently no schools in the Papakura Local Board area participating in the YES programme.

 

The iDEAStarter youth entrepreneurship competition closed on 18 June, attracting 145 entries. Two winners were announced at the finalist event held at AUT on 6 July - Ski Sock (15-19-year category) and MapMyCrop (19-24-year category), each receiving up to $10,000 in business start-up support.

 

Youth Connections

JobFest was held at the ASB Showgrounds on 24 May, in association with Careers Expo. About 2,500 youth attended, including more than 600 NEET (not in employment, education or training) youth. About 25 job offers were made on the day, 88 youth were employed as at 30 June, and further employment offers are pending.

 

Employment pathways

As at 30 June, the CBD Jobs and Skills Hub had supported 221 people into employment (12-month target was 200 by March 2018). Of those employed, 38 per cent were Māori – against a target of 40 per cent. More than 795 training outcomes were also facilitated, with 79 per cent of placements remaining in work and not claiming a Work and Income benefit. Since the hub opened in March 2017, only 17 per cent of people assisted have returned to a benefit, compared to about 60 per cent of typical Work and Income clients.

 

ATEED’s role in future Auckland-wide hub activity is being considered as the network of hubs is expected to grow. ATEED leadership at the CBD hub has been retained and the current hub lease is expected to be held until early 2019. The City Rail Link, Pānuku and the Ministry of Education have all signalled an interest in joining the memorandum of understanding governing the CBD hub.

 

Advice was provided to the establishment group for a north hub based in the Kaipātiki Local Board area, with Pānuku and Homes, Land, Community – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Housing New Zealand Corporation. Scoping is also underway of west and Manukau hubs. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has commissioned a hub system review for Auckland, following the Minister’s decisions on programme and budget in July 2018. Government officials are preparing advice to ministers on scaling up and extending jobs and skills hubs nationally.

14.       6.0 Delivering on the Destination AKL 2025 strategy

The Destination AKL 2025 strategy was launched on 11 May 2018. The strategy encourages sustainable growth of one of Auckland’s and New Zealand’s most important industries – the visitor sector. While Auckland has been successfully marketed as a destination for some time, Destination AKL 2025 has a greater emphasis on ‘destination management’ – or ensuring future growth in visitor numbers is sustainably managed and of benefit to Auckland, rather than simply attracting greater numbers of visitors. The strategy will be supported by individual plans for each of the Destination business units, namely, Tourism, Major Events, Study Auckland and the Auckland Convention Bureau.

 

6.1 Tourism

As the Tourism sector grows and develops, there is a need to target higher-value visitor segments, market Auckland as a year-round visitor destination, and facilitate the development of new tourism experiences.  ATEED’s Tourism team carries out activity to market Auckland as one of the world’s most desirable destinations to visit, and to develop world-class visitor experiences using our resources innovatively and sustainably for future visitors and Aucklanders alike.

 

During Q3, the Tourism team met with the Manurewa, Papakura, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu, and Ōtara-Papatoetoe local boards regarding The Southern Initiative in order to understand what each local board is working on and how we can work more collaboratively.

 

6.2 Major Events

ATEED invests in a portfolio of major events on behalf of Auckland Council in order to:

·    Expand Auckland’s economy

·    Increase visitor nights, enhance Auckland’s liveability

·    Increase Auckland’s international profile.

 

ATEED’s role in major events differs for each event, however can include attraction, delivery, facilitation and business leverage activities.

 

Delivered, sponsored and facilitated events

During the period, ATEED delivered three events, the Tāmaki Herenga Waka Festival, Auckland Lantern Festival and Pasifika Festival.

 

The Tāmaki Herenga Waka Festival was held from 27 – 29 January 2018 at the Viaduct Events Centre and Viaduct Harbour. There was a total attendance of 31,135, with a unique attendance of 24,321. Results from the customer survey showed that an overall customer satisfaction of 90 per cent was achieved, and 93 per cent agreed that events like the the Tāmaki Herenga Waka Festival make Auckland a more enjoyable place to live.

 

The Auckland Lantern Festival was held from 1 – 4 March 2018 at the Auckland Domain. There was a total attendance of 189,480, with a unique attendance of 165,176. Results from the customer survey showed that an overall customer satisfaction of 80 per cent was achieved, and 91 per cent agreed that events like the Auckland Lantern Festival make Auckland a more enjoyable place to live.

 

The Pasifika Festival was held from 24 – 25 March 2018 at Western Springs Park. There was a total attendance of 46,380 (down by 20 per cent due to poor weather), with a unique attendance of 41,220. Results from the customer survey showed an overall customer satisfaction of 77 per cent, and 92 per cent agreed that events like the Pasifika Festival make Auckland a more enjoyable place to live.

 

Residents in the Papakura Local Board area were also able to enjoy events sponsored by ATEED, including the ASB Classic, Auckland Pride Parade, Splore Music and Arts Festival, Volvo Ocean Race Auckland Stopover, New Zealand Comedy Festival, Auckland Writers Festival and the Auckland Art Fair.

Local Board feedback on the government's proposed mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags

 

File No.: CP2018/16814

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To formally adopt the Papakura Local Board’s feedback on the Ministry for the Environment’s consultation on the mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       The New Zealand Government is consulting on a mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags. The consultation document is provided in Attachment A (Ministry for the Environment’s mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags consultation document).

3.       The consultation document outlines the available options for managing these issues, which include a mandatory phase out, a charge on bags, a formal agreement between government and industry, and mandatory product stewardship.

4.       Council staff are preparing a draft regional submission on this proposal. The draft submission was provided to the Environment and Community Committee for approval on 11 September 2018.

5.       The draft council submission makes the following key points:

·     that Auckland Council supports option one in the consultation document – a total and mandatory ban.

·     reducing plastic use, litter, and marine pollution are priorities in the Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018.

·     the inappropriate consumption, use and discarding of plastic bags has significant impacts on Auckland’s natural environment and our waste collection systems.

·     the ban should apply to all retailers who distribute single-use plastic bags, rather than just the larger retailers. An incomplete ban will dilute the effectiveness of this behaviour change intervention on consumers.

·     support for the proposed six-month phase-out timeframe.

6.       The draft submission also identifies areas where Auckland Council considers that further work and discussion is needed post-consultation. These include the thickness of bags captured by the ban and how the ban will be effectively enforced.

7.       Submissions closed on 14 September 2018.  The Papakura Local Board submission signed by the Chair and Deputy Chair and circulated to members has been provided to the Environment and Community Committee to meet the deadline for submission. This report seeks formal adoption of the board’s submission. 


 

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      formally adopt the Papakura Local Board’s feedback on the Ministry for the Environment’s consultation on the proposed mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags as provided in Attachment B of the agenda report (Papakura Local Board feedback on the Ministry for the Environment’s consultation on the mandatory phase out of single-use plastic shopping bags).

 

 

Horopaki / Context

8.       The New Zealand Government is seeking feedback on a proposed mandatory phase out of the sale or distribution of single-use plastic shopping bags. The phase out would be enacted through regulation under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008 and introduced over a six-month timeframe. 

9.       The recognition by the Ministry for the Environment that over the longer term, plastic waste needs to be designed out of the system is aligned with council’s aspiration for zero waste. This recognition reinforces that Aotearoa New Zealand can be prosperous while creating an economy that is not reliant on externalising environmental harms, such as plastic waste, in our streams and oceans.

10.     Auckland Council’s Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018 includes three priorities relating to plastic.

I.     The plan recognises plastic waste as a high priority for avoidance and has identified it as one of three priority waste streams to be addressed.

II.    Reducing litter is also a priority included in the plan. Managing plastic bags as littered items has a high resource and financial cost to council as well as the natural environment.

III.   The plan includes a priority relating to reducing marine litter and pollution from plastic waste. This priority was added to the draft plan as a result of significant public concern and feedback on this topic during the consultation period.

11.     A mandatory phase-out of plastic bags will be beneficial for achieving all three priorities.

12.     The contamination caused by the incorrect disposal of plastic bags by consumers in recycling collection systems also has significant consequences. Plastic bags incorrectly disposed of in kerbside recycling can slow or damage a recycling processor’s equipment, affecting the quality of recyclate and increasing the processing cost.

13.     Auckland Council prioritises education and enforcement around recycling contamination to avoid the knock-on effect of incorrect plastic bag disposal in kerbside recycling bins. A mandatory phase-out will reduce these impacts.

14.     As such, Auckland Council’s draft submission strongly supports a mandatory phase out or ban on the sale or distribution of single use plastic bags.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

15.     The Ministry for the Environment’s consultation document outlines a number of options for reducing the use of plastic bags, including a:

·     mandatory phase out,

·     levy, tax or charge,

·     deposit refund system. This puts a new cost onto a product, which is refunded to the consumer when they bring the material back for recycling.

·     formal agreement with government and industry, in which retailers are required to charge for bags.

·     mandatory product stewardship scheme in which producers that put certain goods on the market are required to be responsible for environmentally sound end-of-life management of the product.

17.     The Ministry’s consultation document considers the pros and cons of each option in detail as outlined in Attachment A. It concludes that the most effective option is a mandatory phase out of sale or distribution of single-use plastic bags through regulations under the Waste Minimisation Act 2008.

18.     Auckland Council’s draft submission does not include a detailed options analysis. However, it notes that, as there are alternative, reusable options easily available for use by the general public, the best way to prevent harm from plastic bags is to prevent them from being issued in the first place.

19.     Since a charge on plastic bags, a deposit refund system and a product stewardship scheme would all support the continued distribution of plastic bags, these options are not supported.

20.     The draft submission also does not support a voluntary programme or an agreement between industry and government. This approach would create an inequitable approach to the problem as some businesses or organisations will choose not to participate in a voluntary scheme.

Preferred option

21.     Of the potential options presented by the Ministry for the Environment, Option 1 - mandatory phase out of the sale or distribution of single-use plastic shopping bags is identified in council’s draft submission, as the most effective and wide-reaching mechanism for addressing plastic bag issues.

22.     The submission also provides feedback on some other aspects of the proposal, as outlined below.

Other aspects of proposal

23.     Scope of ban: To be most effective, the ban should apply to all retailers who distribute plastic bags, rather than just the larger retailers. Small retailers should not be exempt as they contribute significant numbers of bags to the waste stream. A ban should also apply to those importing single use bags. An incomplete ban will dilute the effectiveness of this behaviour change intervention for consumers.

24.     Definition of plastic bags: The draft submission supports the current proposed definition that a single use plastic bag is one that includes handles, and is sold or distributed to the public for the purposes of carrying sold goods. It also agrees with the proposal to include degradable, bio-degradable, oxo-degradable and compostable bags in the proposed definition.

25.     However, the submission notes concern that the discussion document currently specifies a particular thickness of plastic bag. This may result in bag producers designing products to be just above this threshold. The submission therefore supports broadening the definition to apply to single-use plastic bags of all thickness.

26.     Timeframe: The draft submission supports the proposal for a six-month phase-out timeframe as this is considered sufficient time to allow retailers and consumers to prepare and adapt, provided the program of behaviour change interventions is comprehensive.


 

27.     Education and enforcement: Council’s draft submission supports the description of offences, and the strength of the penalties for those outlined in the consultation document. The submission also supports the proposed approach that the Environmental Protection Authority manage enforcement of this ban. It notes that the approach may have some implications for council resources and welcomes the opportunity to participate in further discussions with the Ministry around the best approaches to education and enforcement.

28.     Equity and opportunity: The council’s draft submissions recognises that concerns have been raised regarding the need for a just transition for workers relying on plastic bag manufacture. However, it notes that the majority of single-use bags are manufactured off-shore and so local job loss is likely to be minimal.

29.     In fact, the broader move towards a circular economy has the potential to increase job creation (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2015).  For example, there are a number of community groups across Auckland who create and distribute alternative bags to their local communities. The submission advocates that these community groups be taken into consideration by the Ministry as potential providers when engaging with retailers on practical options for alternatives to plastic bags.

30.     The submission also notes that the ban has the potential to reduce council litter clean-up costs and volunteer hours spent on litter clean ups.

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

31.     The council’s draft submission has been informed by the feedback that local boards gave on the draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018 in April and May 2018.

32.     Submissions on the consultation document closed on 14 September 2018. The council’s regional draft submission was provided to the Environment and Community Committee for their approval on 11 September 2018. To be considered by the committee, local boards had to provide their feedback by 10 September 2018.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

33.     The mandatory phase out of single-use plastic bags is consistent with the priorities and values that Maori have identified to Auckland Council through engagement on the Waste Management and Minimisation Plan 2018. These include priorities such as protection of waterways and ecology which receive waste and the protection of Papatūānuku.

34.     The ban also aligns with Te Ao Māori as it recognises the traditional system in which nothing was wasted – everything was able to be returned back to Papatūānuku without detriment to the whenua, awa or moana.  By reducing the prevalence of single-use plastic bags, this ban will support a move towards para kore (zero waste).

35.     The draft submission notes that mātauranga and tikanga Māori should be incorporated into solutions and decision-making by working with mana whenua, enabling Māori participation in decision-making as per Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations. This will ensure that the implementation of a phase-out works well for Māori. 

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

36.     The financial costs of a plastic bag ban to Auckland Council are likely to be minimal.

37.     Possible financial benefits include:

·     a reduction in damage caused by plastic bags on plant and equipment at the Visy Materials Recycling Facility

·     reduction in penalties paid by the council for contamination of kerbside commingled recycling

·     reduction in streetscape litter clean up by street maintenance contractors.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

38.     The risks of local boards providing input on the draft consultation document are minimal.  

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

39.     The Papakura Local Board’s feedback has already been sent to relevant staff.

Papakura Local Board feedback on the Onsite Wastewater Management Bylaw Review

 

File No.: CP2018/16866

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       Seeking formal adoption of the Papakura Local Board feedback on the Onsite Wastewater Management Bylaw Review.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       In May 2018 Auckland Council made a decision that the legacy on-site wastewater bylaws are no longer needed.

3.       The legacy on-site wastewater bylaws were developed by former district councils to ensure that septic tanks and domestic wastewater treatments systems are properly installed and maintained to prevent system failure and pollution.

4.       The bylaws cover the former council areas of:

·    North Shore City

·    Waiheke

·    Rodney District Council

·    Papakura District Council.

5.       The Auckland Unitary Plan is now operative and regulates on-site wastewater systems for the whole Auckland region.

6.       The legacy on-site wastewater bylaws provide no additional regulation and are no longer required. Existing legislation also provides stronger enforcement powers than the legacy bylaws.

7.       The local board feedback was circulated to all members for input and approval and then forwarded to staff. Feedback was required by 31 August 2018.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      endorse the Papakura Local Board feedback on the Onsite Wastewater Management Bylaw Review.

Papakura Local Board Governance Forward Work Calendar for September 2018

 

File No.: CP2018/15714

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To present the three months Governance Forward Work Calendar to the Papakura Local Board.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       This report presents the Governance Forward Work Calendar: a schedule of items that will come before local boards at business meetings and workshops over the next three months. The Governance Forward Work Calendar for the Papakura Local Board is included in Attachment A (Governance Forward Work Calendar as at 13 September 2018).

3.       The calendar aims to support local boards’ governance role by:

i)     ensuring advice on agendas and workshop material is driven by local board priorities

ii)    clarifying what advice is required and when

iii)    clarifying the rationale for reports.

4.       The calendar will be updated every month, be included on the agenda for business meetings and distributed to relevant council staff. It is recognised that at times items will arise that are not programmed. Board members are welcome to discuss changes to the calendar.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      note the Governance Forward Work Calendar as at 13 September 2018.

 

 

Horopaki / Context

5.       The council’s Quality Advice Programme aims to improve the focus, analysis, presentation and timeliness of staff advice to elected representatives. An initiative under this is to develop forward work calendars for Governing Body committees and local boards. These provide elected members with better visibility of the types of governance tasks they are being asked to undertake and when they are scheduled.

6.       The calendar brings together in one schedule reporting on all of the board’s projects and activities that have been previously approved in the local board plan, long-term plan, departmental work programmes and through other board decisions. It includes Governing Body policies and initiatives that call for a local board response.

7.       This initiative is intended to support the boards’ governance role. It will also help staff to support local boards by providing an additional tool to manage workloads and track activities across council departments, and it allows greater transparency for the public.

8.       The calendar is arranged in three columns, “Topic”, “Purpose” and “Governance Role”:

i)        Topic describes the items and may indicate how they fit in with broader processes such as the annual plan.

ii)       Purpose indicates the aim of the item, such as formally approving plans or projects, hearing submissions or receiving progress updates.

iii)      Governance role is a higher-level categorisation of the work local boards do. Examples of the seven governance categories are tabled below:

 

Governance role

Examples

Setting direction / priorities / budget

Capex projects, work programmes, annual plan

Local initiatives / specific decisions

Grants, road names, alcohol bans

Input into regional decision-making

Comments on regional bylaws, policies, plans

Oversight and monitoring

Local board agreement, quarterly performance reports, review projects

Accountability to the public

Annual report

Engagement

Community hui, submissions processes

Keeping informed

Briefings, cluster workshops

 

9.       Board members are welcome to discuss changes to the calendar. The calendar will be updated and reported back every month to business meetings. Updates will also be distributed to relevant council staff.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

10.     This report is an information report providing the governance forward work programme for the next three months.

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

11.     All local boards are being presented with Governance Forward Work Calendars for their consideration.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

12.     The projects and processes referred to in the Governance Forward Work Calendar will have a range of implications for Māori which will be considered when the work is reported.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

13.     There are no financial implications relating to this report.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

14.     This report is a point in time of the governance forward work calendar. It will be updated monthly. It minimises the risk of the board being unaware of planned topics for their consideration.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

15.     Staff will review the calendar each month in consultation with board members and will report an updated calendar to the board.
