SH16/20 General Restoration Budget expenditure plan

 

File No.: CP2018/16315

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.      To seek approval of the expenditure plan for the remaining SH16/20 General Restoration budget. 

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.      The Whau Local Board has a remaining fund of $580,172 in the SH16/20 General Restoration budget

3.      Park Services has identified an expenditure plan and programme of works suitable for the allocation of this fund and discussed this with the local board at a workshop on 15 August 2018.

4.      Approval is now sought from the local board to progress these projects.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      approve the allocation of the SH16/20 General Restoration Budget of $580,172 to the following projects in order of priority with estimate values:

i)        Whau Coastal Walkway Project - ongoing project commitment of $57,000.

ii)       Lynfield Cove / Manukau coastal walkway signage delivery ($33,500)

iii)      Te Whau heritage interpretation ($11,000)

iv)      Sandy Lane Reserve upgrade ($165,000)

v)       programme management time charges ($4,500)

vi)      Archibald Park Waka Ama storage ($150,000)

vii)     Riversdale Reserve installation of boom gate ($7,000)

viii)    Archibald Park mural ($15,000)

ix)      future improvements to parks in Avondale.

b)      note that estimate values are indicative only and are provided to give insight to the scale of project.

c)      agree to revisit and allocate the remaining funds to ‘Future improvements to parks in Avondale’ in FY19/FY20.

Horopaki / Context

5.      Funding has been provided to the Whau Local Board from New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) for mitigation of the SH16/20 Waterview Connection project.  This is outlined fully in a report presented to the Local Board on 19 August 2015, Item 32. The funding is made up of occupation fees and revenue from the sale of a portion of Rosebank Domain.  The total funding applied to the SH16/20 General Restoration Budget has recently been confirmed as $967,387.

6.      While NZTA’s occupation of Rosebank Domain ceased in August 2016 there was a delay in finalising the land sale of the portion of Rosebank Domain. The local board was advised of this in a workshop in September 2017. As a result the projects funded from this budget were put on hold.  The land sale has now been confirmed with NZTA. 

7.      To date $387,215 of the SH16/20 General Restoration budget has been spent on the Whau Coastal walkway, the Holly St to Heron Park boardwalk, Miranda Reserve connections, Lynfield Cove walkway concept, interpretive signs, Crum Park and Sister Rene Shadbolt Park car park lighting, Copley Reserve bollards, and a minor upgrade to Bellgrove Reserve.

8.      Given the delay in receiving the final funding, the board is being asked to confirm the expenditure plan previously proposed to the board for the remaining budget of $580,172. 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

9.      The expenditure plan takes account of funding carried over from last financial year for projects that were not delivered or completed due to the delay in receiving the revenue.   The project list is ordered to give priority to completing these projects already underway or committed to. 

10.    The expenditure plan includes the following projects with estimated costs:

i)                 Whau Coastal Walkway project – ongoing project commitment ($57,000).

ii)               Lynfield Cove / Manukau coastal walkway - signage delivery ($33,500)

iii)              Te Whau heritage interpretation ($11,000)

iv)              Sandy Lane Reserve upgrade - park development, footpath connections between Sandy Lane and Rizal Reserve, seating and art/play opportunities ($165,000)

v)               Programme management time charges ($4,500)

vi)              Archibald Park - Waka Ama storage, design and installation ($150,000)

vii)            Riversdale Reserve - installation of boom gate at the car park entrance to replace chain gate ($7,000)

viii)           Archibald Park - design and paint mural on changing room block ($15,000)

11.   Should the above projects be delivered with the budget as estimated, a balance of approximately $137,000 will remain in the bucket. The local board has indicated they would like this held as an unallocated fund for future improvements to parks in Avondale. This budget will be reviewed once there is more rigor around the costs of delivering the above projects, and park improvement projects in Avondale have been further scoped based on priorities in the Whau Open Space Network Plan Park Services will workshop proposed projects for allocation with the Local Board in FY19/20.

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

12.    The local board has received a number of reports since 2013 providing updates on the revenue being received from NZTA and confirming the allocation of this funding.  The first programme of work was approved by the local board in August 2015.  A further proposed expenditure plan was reported to the board on 14 December 2016 and then the board was advised of the delay in receiving the funding in September 2017.

13.    At a workshop with the local board on 15 August 2018 the board was advised that agreement had been reached on the land sale and provided support for the expenditure plan included in the recommendations.

14.    Delivery of projects from within the programme of work would directly respond to several outcomes identified within the Whau Local Board Plan 2017, including “well planned towns, facilities and housing”, “It’s 20 minutes to all we need by walking, cycling and public transport” and “our heritage is known, protected, and our stories shared”.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

15.    Mana whenua were included in the community liaison groups and have been involved in the Board of Inquiry process around the mitigation funding from the SH16/20 project.

16.    Engagement with mana whenua with an interest in the Whau area has been undertaken through the delivery of specific projects, and has focused so far on the Whau Coastal walkway and the Holly St Heron Park boardwalk projects.  Initial engagement has also occurred for the Sandy Lane Reserve Development and the Archibald Park Waka Ama storage at a hui on 22 November 2016.

17.    Going forward it is anticipated where mana whenua have an identified interest in a project, that appropriate engagement will be undertaken.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

18.    The SH16/20 General Restoration Budget was set up from the revenue received from NZTA relating to the occupation and land sale at Rosebank Domain.  This money was ring-fenced to deliver improvements to parks in the Whau Local Board area.

19.    The initial estimates for the projects in the expenditure plan have been developed by Parks Services in consultation with the Community Facilities quantity surveyor.  While these include contingencies, the full accuracy of these will not be determined until the project moves through the investigation and design, and into the delivery stage.

20.    The funding that remains allocated to ‘Future improvements to parks in Avondale’ may therefore be reduced or increased when firmer cost estimates for other projects on the list are received.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

21.    There have been no identified risks with the local board supporting this expenditure plan.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

22.    The projects in the expenditure plan have been on hold for the past 18 months.  The approval of this funding allocation will now enable Community Facilities to proceed with the investigation, design and delivery of these projects.

Te Auaunga – Oakley Creek lower catchment Vision and Restoration Strategy

 

File No.: CP2018/15893

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.      To seek adoption of the Te Auaunga – Oakley Creek Vision and Restoration Strategy for the lower catchment.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.      Te Auaunga - Oakley Creek is the longest urban awa (stream) in the Auckland isthmus. The awa flows 15 km from the north-eastern slopes of the Hillsborough ridge through parks and reserves in the local board areas of Puketāpapa, Albert-Eden and the Whau, before entering the Waitematā Harbour at Waterview.

3.      The awa was once a vibrant ecosystem encompassing wetlands, swamps and plentiful vegetation. Today, the catchment is urbanised, and in places the awa is extensively modified and channelised. This has degraded the ecology and water quality of the awa, which impacts the health of the Waitematā Harbour.

4.      In 2015 the Puketāpapa Local Board developed a long term strategy to guide future planning, management and operations within the upper catchment. Building on this, the Whau Local Board initiated a process in 2017 to create a vision and restoration strategy specific to the lower catchment of Te Auaunga - Oakley Creek.

5.      The document outlines a long term thirty year vision and strategy for the awa, and actions for the Whau Local Board, Auckland Council departments, Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs), and other stakeholders to undertake to deliver the strategy. Future management of the awa and any projects planned or delivered within the catchment should be aligned with the strategy.

6.      The document covers the awa within the Whau Local Board area. It was developed collaboratively through a series of hui in 2017/2018 with mana whenua, the Friends of Oakley Creek, and in consultation with local residents and stakeholders.

7.      The strategy expands upon a vision to restore the mauri (respect) of Te Auaunga – Oakley Creek so that it becomes an awa that is alive and flowing through a green corridor, and is treasured and respected for generations to come. This will be achieved through implementing key objectives across two themes: reviving the mauri of the awa and empowering people.

8.      Staff are seeking Albert-Eden Local Board adoption of a similar strategy document specific to their area. This will ensure consistent management of the lower catchment.

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      adopt the Te Auaunga – Oakley Creek Vision and Restoration Strategy for the Lower Catchment as presented in Attachment A to this report.

Horopaki / Context

9.      Te Auaunga - Oakley Creek is the longest urban stream in Auckland, running for over fifteen kilometers from its origin in Puketāpapa through the Whau and Albert-Eden local board areas before exiting into the Waitematā Harbour. The stream represents an important open-space link for these areas, providing transportation, recreational, ecological and storm water outcomes.

10.    In 2015, several projects in the upper reaches of catchment highlighted the need for a long term restoration strategy. This inspired the Puketāpapa Local Board to initiate a strategic planning process for the upper catchment, in partnership with mana whenua and other stakeholders, which led to the drafting of the Te Auaunga Awa (Oakley Creek) Vision and Restoration Strategy for the upper catchment 2016.

11.    The lower catchment has a distinct character. Stretches of the awa are in a near-natural or restored and naturalized state, and this character requires a slightly different approach to management and future planning to the largely modified upper catchment. A plan specific to this area of the catchment was required.

12.    The extent of the lower catchment of Te Auaunga as defined in the strategy is the extent of the stream network flowing from Richardson Road to the mouth of the harbor at Waterview. The Whau Local Board has decision making authority for many of the parks and reserves in the lower catchment.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

13.    The attached document is intended to broadcast specific outcomes and objectives for delivery in the next three years to a range of Auckland Council departments, Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs), and other stakeholders. The strategy also describes a long term thirty year vision for the awa, to guide future management decisions.

14.    The development of a holistic strategy for the lower catchment will lead to numerous benefits for the environment, as well as foster increased community connection with Te Auaunga. This will also help to raise community awareness and thus use of the awa, and help provide a sense of place to local residents.

15.    The vision (outlined in Attachment A) is to restore the mauri (respect) of Te Auaunga so that it becomes an awa that is alive and flowing through a green corridor, treasured and respected for generations to come. This will be achieved through implementing key objectives across two themes: reviving the mauri of the awa and empowering our people.

16.    A number of objectives fall out of these themes:

i)                 reduced sedimentation

ii)                reduced contamination

iii)              restoration of nature

iv)              improved knowledge

v)               increased connectedness

17.    Part D of the strategy is the implementation plan, outlining short term actions which will contribute to achieving these five objectives. Actions for the local board include advocacy, partnership and also actions to invest and investigate.

18.    The strategy is intended as a living and evolving document, open to change as more initiatives are implemented in the awa, and throughout the catchment. It is intended that the strategy will be used in conjunction with the upper catchment strategy.

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

19.    The Whau Local Board Plan (2017) supports the restoration of Te Auaunga through Outcome Four which seeks an enhanced natural environment, targeting improved water quality, restored ecology and biodiversity, sustainability, and the development of strong community connection to the natural environment. Support for volunteer groups such as the Friends of Oakley Creek, who help to achieve many of the goals set by the local board is also discussed in the Plan.

20.    Parks Services staff worked closely with the local board to develop actions specific to the lower catchment of Te Auaunga. Workshops were held with the local board to develop the strategy on 8 November 2017, 14 April 2018 and 11 July 2018. The board provided feedback and information which helped to shape the document.

21.    A consultation event was also held on Thursday 24 May to provide local residents and stakeholders with an opportunity to have input on the actions in the strategy.

22.    The restoration of Te Auaunga also delivers on the Auckland Plan’s desires of thriving ecosystems, no native species loss, clean harbours and waterways, sustainable land management and low impact stormwater management.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

23.    Te Auaunga is of cultural significance to Māori. Its waters weave together a cultural landscape of significant cultural sites including mahinga kai, pā taua, papakāinga, wāhi nohoanga and wāhi tapu.

24.    The strategy acknowledges mana whenua as kaitiaki (caretakers) and seeks through a partnership to express the values and aspirations in the context of kaitiakitanga.

25.    Mana Whenua were involved as a partner through the development of this strategy, and provided the cultural history information found in Part B of the plan. The document was discussed at several Park, Sports and Recreation Kaitiaki Forums. The final draft of the strategy was endorsed by all representatives present at a forum meeting in May 2018.

26.    The Te Auaunga – Oakley Creek Vision and Restoration Strategy for the Lower Catchment references the importance of the rich cultural history of this whenua (land), and recognizes the role that mana whenua play as kaitiaki (guardians). This reflects Auckland Council’s desire to deliver the vision of a world class city, including a Māori identity that is Auckland’s point of difference in the world.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

27.    Actions outlined in Part D, the three year implementation plan, include those which will involve advocacy, partnership and funding.

28.    In future years, unfunded priorities from the strategy for funding allocation will be sought in the drafting and approval process for annual work programmes.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

29.    Delivery of the actions within this strategy over the next three years will require strong support from a range of Auckland Council departments, Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs), residential developers and other stakeholders.

30.    Other stakeholders, including residential developers are under no legal obligation to consider the strategy. There is a risk therefore that the strategy may be overlooked in those decisions which do not require local board approval or input.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

31.    Staff will work to produce a media release to celebrate the adoption of the strategy document, and highlight the work already ongoing to restore and celebrate the awa.

32.    The final strategy document will be shared with relevant stakeholders, including council departments such as Healthy Waters, the Development Programme Office, Compliance and Resource Consents, Council Controlled Organisations including Watercare and Auckland Transport, and stakeholders such as the Friends of Oakley Creek.

33.    In future years, unfunded priorities from the strategy for LDI Opex or LDI Capex allocation will be identified by staff.

Panuku Development Auckland Local Board six-monthly update 1 February - 31 July 2018

 

File No.: CP2018/13789

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.      To update the Whau Local Board on Panuku Development Auckland (Panuku) activities within the local board area for the six months from 1 February to 31 July 2018.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.      Panuku was established in September 2015 by the merger of two council controlled organisations, Waterfront Auckland and Auckland Council Property Limited.

3.      Panuku helps to rejuvenate parts of Auckland, from small projects that refresh a site or building, to major transformations of town centres or neighbourhoods.

4.      Panuku manages around $2 billion of council’s property portfolio, which is continuously reviewed to find smart ways to generate income for the region, grow the portfolio, or release land or property that can be better used by others.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      receive the Panuku Development Auckland Local Board update for 1 February to 31 July 2018.

 

Ngā Mahi ā-Hapori / Local Activities

Development

5.      Panuku is contributing commercial input into approximately 50 region-wide council-driven renewal and housing supply initiatives.

6.      Panuku works with partners and stakeholders over the course of a project. It also champions best practice project delivery, to achieve best value outcomes within defined cost, time and quality parameters.

7.      Following is a high-level update on development activities in the Whau Local Board area:

8.      The Panuku Unlock Avondale programme business case was approved in July 2018 and the associated projects within the first tranche of our work programme are underway. We are initiating discussions with delivery partners to create integration and enable progress each project. Here is an overview of the Unlock Avondale programme activities in the Whau Local Board area as below.

9.      The Ockham SET apartment buildings at 24-26 Racecourse Parade are almost completed with the final of the 3 builds due to finish later this year. Of the 72 units 10 per cent are classified as affordable housing.

10.    The New Zealand Housing Foundation have completed the Special Housing Area at 1 Trent Street and the homes provide affordable mixed housing. The issue relating to the gradient of the driveways has been remedied and is compliant with resource and planning requirements.

11.    The Avondale Central site (Bai site) on Great North Road is a development opportunity in the heart of the town centre. This project is working through the details of potential outcomes sought with a view to taking the site to market late 2018.

12.    The Panuku Unlock Programme is supporting the council led Community Services project to upgrade the community centre and library in Avondale by providing specialist development expertise. This project is currently at a very early stage with much work to be clarified and understood by several teams within council and across CCO’s.

13.    10 Ambrico Place, New Lynn is a support site that was cleared for sale in February 2016. The site is well located, approximately 500m from the New Lynn train station, and within reasonable walking distance to a medical Centre, schools, supermarkets, entertainment and public transport links.  Resource Consent has been obtained for a 10 home residential development a mix of four three and two bedroom homes. The sale of the site is on hold until July 2020 whilst Healthy Waters secure the required regulatory consents and complete a major infrastructure project servicing the wider community.

14.    New Lynn Town Centre – Development sites C and D are currently being subdivided from the Library, Certificates of Title are expected to be available before the end of 2018. The OAGs Building located on the corner of Totara Ave continues to be propped whilst we work through the future options.

15.    83B Godley Road - The property was sold to the neighbouring property owner to facilitate a 13 lot residential subdivision. With the required regulatory consents in place earthworks commenced beginning of August 2018 and we are pleased to report they are making good progress. The civil works are expected to be completed by the end of February 2019 with certificates of title expected to be available late 2019.

Portfolio Management

16.    Panuku manages ‘non-service’ properties owned by the council and Auckland Transport (AT). Non-service properties are those that are not currently needed for service or infrastructure purposes. These properties were generally being held for planned future projects that are no longer required, such as road construction, park expansion or development of future town centres.

17.    As at 30 June 2018, the property portfolio comprises 1437 properties, containing 1119 leases. The current portfolio includes vacant land, industrial buildings, warehouses, retail shops, cafes, offices, medical centres, and a large portfolio of residential rental homes.

18.    The return on the property portfolio for the period ending 30 June 2018 was above budget, with a net surplus to council and AT shareholders of $3.9 million ahead of budget.

19.    The average monthly tenantable occupancy rate for the six-month period is more than 98 per cent, which is above the statement of intent target of 95 per cent.

Properties managed in the Whau Local Board Area

20.    Panuku currently manages 37 commercial and 4 residential interests within the Whau Local Board area.

Business interests

21.    Panuku also manages the commercial return from business interests on the council’s behalf. This includes two forestry enterprises, two landfills and four quarries. 

22.    There are currently no managed business interests in the Whau Local Board area.

Portfolio strategy

Optimisation

23.    The 2018-2028 Long-term Plan (LTP) reflects a desire of council to materially reduce or slow down expenditure and unlock value from assets no longer required, or which are sub-optimal for service purposes. In response to this, ACPL developed a new method of dealing with service property called optimisation, prior to the establishment of Panuku. 

24.    Asset optimisation deals with ‘service property’. It is self-funding, maximises efficiencies from service assets, and maintains levels of service whilst releasing property for sale or development. A key element of optimisation is that the sale proceeds are locally reinvested to advance approved projects and activities on a cost-neutral basis. Panuku continues to advance this programme of work. This includes the development of a cross-council project to coordinate and execute asset sales and optimisation. 

25.    One service property in the Whau Local Board area has been approved for optimization.

Property

Details

37 New Windsor Road, Avondale (Arthur Currey Reserve)

The residential dwelling occupying approximately 1055m2 of the site is included in the optimisation programme.

The remainder of Arthur Currey Reserve will remain as a recreation reserve. The entire site is encumbered by a historic heritage overlay and listed as a category B historic heritage place.

The optimisation process commenced in July 2017 with support from council departments and the board.

Disposal of the residential dwelling portion of the site was approved by the Finance and Performance Committee on 27 February 2018.

Under the optimisation policy the proceeds will be reinvested towards eligible Whau Local Board area projects. The 1055m2 residential portion will be sold “as is” with the heritage listing intact.

Portfolio review and rationalisation

Overview

26.    Panuku is required to undertake ongoing rationalisation of the council’s non-service assets. This includes identifying properties from within the council’s portfolio that may be suitable for potential sale and development if appropriate. Panuku has a focus on achieving housing and urban regeneration outcomes. Identifying potential sale properties contributes to the Auckland Plan focus of accommodating the significant growth projected for the region over the coming decades, by providing the council with an efficient use of capital and prioritisation of funds to achieve its activities and projects.

Performance

27.    Panuku works closely with Auckland Council and AT to identify potential surplus properties to help achieve disposal targets.

28.    Target for July 2017 to June 2018:

Unit

Target

Achieved

Portfolio review

$60 million disposal recommendations

$88 million as at 30 June 2018 (includes $62 million from the Papatoetoe, Avondale and Panmure priority locations)

29.    Target for July 2018 to June 2019:

Unit

Target

Achieved

Portfolio review

To be determined as part of the statement of intent with council

The target will include disposal recommendations and sales for sites that are identified for housing development and urban regeneration projects

Process

30.    Once identified as no longer delivering the council service use for which it was acquired, a property is taken through a multi-stage rationalisation process. The agreed process includes engagement with council departments and CCOs, the local board and mana whenua. This is followed by Panuku board approval, engagement with the local ward councillors and the Independent Māori Statutory Board and finally, a Governing Body decision.

Under review

31.    Properties currently under review in the Whau Local Board area are listed below. The list includes any properties that may have recently been approved for sale or development and sale by the governing body.

Property

Details

13 Crown Lynn Place, New Lynn

Acquired in 2010 by the former Waitakere City Council for open space purposes.

 

The rationalisation process for this site commenced in June 2017.

 

Council’s Healthy Waters department is investigating possible service use requirements for the site for stormwater infrastructure.

 

Further Panuku engagement with the board is planned for late 2018.

 

Acquisitions and disposals

32.    Panuku manages the acquisition and disposal of property on behalf of Auckland Council. Panuku purchases property for development, roads, infrastructure projects and other services. These properties may be sold with or without contractual requirements for development.

Acquisitions

33.    Panuku does not decide which properties to buy in a local board area. Instead, it is asked to negotiate the terms and conditions of a purchase on behalf of the council.

34.    Panuku purchased 12 properties for open space across Auckland in the 2017-18 financial year at a cost of $27 million, and bought seven properties for storm water use at a value of $4.2 million.

35.    During the reporting period, two properties were purchased for stormwater purposes in the Whau Local Board area at a value of $54,500.

36.    Panuku undertakes acquisitions for Auckland Council’s Parks Department and Healthy Waters, under delegation from the Chief Executive of Auckland Council. Panuku does not unilaterally decide what properties to buy and when, but rather follows a directive to manage the commercial transactions, following committee approval to purchase a particular property. A prerequisite of the committee resolution is reporting to the Whau Local Board.

37.    All land acquisition committee resolutions contain a confidentiality clause, due to the commercially sensitive nature of ongoing transactions, and thus cannot be reported on while in process. 

Disposals

38.    For the last six-month period to the end of June 2018, the Panuku disposals team has sold 11 properties, realising $6.35 million of unconditional net sales proceeds. The team’s 2017/18 disposals target was $8.0 million for the year and the team achieved $15.06 million of unconditional net sale proceeds from 17 sales over the whole year. This target was part of Panuku’s overall disposals target of $100 million, which includes the sale of development opportunities. The disposals target is agreed with the council and is reviewed on an annual basis. 

39.    One of the properties sold is in the Whau Local Board area: 44 Bancroft Crescent, Glendene.

Housing for Older People

40.    The council owns 1412 units located in 62 villages across Auckland, which provide rental housing to low income older people in Auckland.

41.    The Housing for Older People (HfOP) project involved the council partnering with a third-party organisation, The Selwyn Foundation, to deliver social rental housing services for older people across Auckland.

42.    The joint venture business, named Haumaru Housing, took over the tenancy, facilities and asset management of the portfolio, under a long-term lease arrangement from 1 July 2017.

43.    Haumaru Housing was granted community housing provider (CHP) status in April 2017. Having CHP registration enables Haumaru to access the government’s Income Related Rent Subsidy (IRRS) scheme.

44.    Auckland Council has delegated Panuku to lead a new multi-year residential development programme.

45.    The first new development project is a 40-unit apartment building on the former Wilsher Village site on 33 Henderson Valley Road, Henderson. Once completed in mid-2019, this development will increase the council’s portfolio to 1452 units.

46.    The following HfOP villages are located within the Whau Local Board area:

47.    81A Godley Road, Green Bay – Panuku have identified an opportunity to redevelop the vacant land to provide a 40 new homes for older people to increase the supply of quality units in the Housing for Older People portfolio. A local board workshop is scheduled for 19 September to present the concept scheme for the redevelopment.

Ngā Mahi ā-Rohe / Regional Activities

48.    Over the year, Panuku achieved key project milestones and performance results in our priority development locations. Panuku categorises three types of priority locations:

·        Transform locations – Panuku ‘transforms’ locations by creating change through urban regeneration. Panuku leads the transformation of select parts of the Auckland region working alongside others and using the custodianship of land and planning expertise. The catalytic work Waterfront Auckland led at Wynyard Quarter is a great example of the transformation of urban locations

·        Unlock locations – Panuku ‘unlocks’ development potential for others. By acting as a facilitator; using relationships to break down barriers and influence others, including the council family, to create development opportunities

·        Support locations – Panuku plays a ‘support’ role to ensure council is making the most of what it already has. Intensification is a key driver in the Auckland Plan. Panuku will support housing demands by enabling development of council-owned land.

Transform locations

49.    The Wynyard Quarter is undergoing rapid change both commercially and residentially, with thousands of Aucklanders using this space every week.

Panuku has partnered with Willis Bond to deliver a total of 500 homes in Wynyard Quarter over several stages, the first of which – Wynyard Central Pavilions – is now complete. This first stage of the new precinct offers a mix of 113 residencies comprising 25 free-stranding pavilions, 8 townhouses and 80 apartments with retail space on the ground floor. Willis Bond is also leading the delivery of 51 apartments at 132 Halsey, which is expected to be complete in Spring 2018. At the same time it is anticipated that works will begin on the second stage of Willis Bond’s residential development at 30 Madden Street with the construction of 90 apartments and six townhouses as well as ground floor retail. This residential construction is due to be completed by the end of 2020.

Precinct are due to commence construction on their next commercial building at 10 Madden Street in Spring 2018, with an anticipated completion date towards the end of 2020. This seven level building will provide approximately 8,500m2 of commercial space including ground floor retail.

The east-west connection between Halsey and Daldy Streets, Tiramarama Way, was completed in June of this year, with the street opening on Friday 29 June 2018 receiving much positive feedback.

Negotiations are underway with Orams regarding the development of Site 18 (on the corner of Beaumont and Jellicoe Streets) for a marine refit facility and residential development.

50.    Transform Manukau covers over 600 hectares and is the largest of the Panuku priority locations. The Auckland Plan sees Manukau as the commercial centre of southern Auckland, but the significant investment in transport and community amenities has not been matched by intensification of the adjacent land to provide more homes and jobs. The area contains over 6 hectares of undeveloped council land in the town centre that is suitable for residential and commercial  development. There is also significant Crown land held by both HNZC and the Counties Manukau DHB that can provide significant additional housing. Panuku is focussing on taking the development sites to market to test the appetite for private sector investment. Currently there is a 300 home development on Barrowcliffe Place already underway. We are also focussing on public realm projects that will enhance the overall environment and liveability of the area. Panuku is working closely with The Southern Initiative and ATEED to develop integrated actions to benefit the local community.

51.    The Framework Plan to guide the Onehunga transformation on a similar scale to Wynyard Quarter and Manukau, was approved in May 2018. The plan was completed involving significant consultation with the community. Panuku is leading the redevelopment of strategic council-owned land, and works in partnership with government and others, to deliver positive outcomes for the local community. The East-West link and proposed light rail, which affects the wharf and southern parts of the area, is currently being reassessed by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).  Panuku is expecting amended plans later this year. Further refinement of the Framework Plan will occur once this can be reviewed. Working with the local board and key stakeholders, Panuku has advanced plans on the town centre and the Onehunga wharf precinct where possible.

Unlock locations

52.    In Takapuna, Auckland Council owns nearly four hectares of land focused around the Anzac Street carpark and the Gasometer site, consultation on redevelopment of these sites has started.


 

53.    At the Airfields, Hobsonville Point, six of the seven super-lots have now settled with AV Jennings with the remaining super-lot due for settlement October 2018. Fortytwo housing units have been completed to the end of June 2018. In stage 2, the development by Avanda will result in 510 dwellings. The tier 1 roads which are Wallace Road, Waka Moana Drive and Commanders Avenue are progressing well and are on target for practical completion December 2018. The first housing development is anticipated to start in December 2018. 

54.    In Northcote, we are continuing to build on the urban regeneration concepts outlined in the November 2016 Framework Plan, and have progressed our engagement and co-design with HLC for the Awataha Greenway project and other key projects. The information kiosk continues to provide a ‘shop front’ for the community to walk in and ask any questions. With the 2018 LTP signed off by Council in late-June, Panuku is now able to commence implementation of the first-year’s projects including the Greenslade Reserve stormwater detention project.

55.    The council’s Planning Committee approved the over-arching plans to redevelop Old Papatoetoe in June. Construction on the Mall has been completed and we are now focussed on leasing the remaining tenancies. The supermarket construction is progressing; however we have been advised that this is unlikely to be completed by Christmas. We are working closely with Foodstuffs on the new plaza space. The Panuku Board has now approved the Programme Business Case which details how new housing in the town centre will be enabled.  The temporary food hub proposal for the old netball clubrooms is progressing well.  

56.    The overall plan for Henderson was approved in May 2017 by Governing Body. The 2018-2021 Unlock Henderson work programme was endorsed by the local board and approved by the Panuku board in June 2018. The vision is for Henderson is for it to grow into an urban eco-centre. This vision will guide planning and development with an outcome towards ‘liveable growth’ by creating a safe, attractive and vibrant mixed-use environment with a uniquely west Auckland identity.

57.    Located within the Tāmaki Transformation area, Panmure town centre is well-located with excellent public transport links to the wider Auckland area. Panmure was chosen as a location for regeneration due to large areas of underused, council-owned land in the town centre that represent significant redevelopment opportunities. The project area covers 43ha and encompasses land owned by council, TRC, the Crown and Auckland Transport (AT), who Panuku will work in partnership with to facilitate the staged transition of sites for development.
