Draft Old School Reserve Concept Plan for public consultation

 

File No.: CP2018/22006

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval from the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board to:

a)           publicly notify the draft Old School Concept Plan for consultation;

b)      notify an intention to grant a licence to occupy to Cook Islands Development Agency New Zealand (CIDANZ) for interim activities on the     land;

c)           notify a small lease extension for the existing Tavaesina Trust.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       A draft concept plan for the future development of the Old School Reserve has been developed for public consultation.  It has been funded and supported by the local board.

3.       The concept plan is a blueprint for future use and development of the reserve and is an integrated approach involving all lessees and stakeholders.

4.       The plan provides certainty for the lessees and council as to how the land will be used, bringing to an end the uncertainty and ad hoc nature of earlier development proposals.

5.       The recommendations are to publicly notify the draft concept plan, licence to occupy, and intention to grant a new community lease.

6.       To accommodate the activities of the Cook Islands Development Agency New Zealand, in anticipation of the concept plan being implemented, a licence to occupy for an area of land to the front of the reserve is proposed. This can be notified with the draft concept plan.

7.       In addition, a small portion of land is required for the Tavaesina Trust, as a new community lease area, to support its consented expansion. This can also be notified with the above.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board:

a)      approve the public notification of the draft Old School Reserve Concept Plan for submissions.

b)      form a hearings panel comprising the members of the local board to hear submissions on the draft Old School Reserve Concept Plan (if any).

c)      approve the public notification of the local board’s intention to grant a Licence to Occupy to the Cook Island Development Agency New Zealand, to accommodate its activities for a period of five (5) years.

d)      form a hearings panel comprising the members of the local board to hear submissions on the intention to grant a Licence to Occupy to the Cook Island Development Agency New Zealand (if any).

e)      approve the public notification of the local board’s intention to grant a community lease to Tavaesina Trust on the same terms and conditions as the current community lease held by the group.

f)       form a hearings panel comprising the members of the local board to hear submissions on the intention to grant a community lease to Tavaesina Trust (if any).

 

 

Horopaki / Context

8.       A draft concept plan for the integrated development of the Old School Reserve on Kirkbride Road, Mangere, has been developed with key stakeholders. It was supported by the local board by way of resolution MO/2018/75 on 16 May 2018, and at a workshop of the local board on 3 October 2018 (refer Attachment A).

9.       The draft concept plan has resulted from extensive work by council staff and the stakeholders on the reserve forming collaborative relationships, defining their aspirations and future land use goals over a number of years.

10.     The Cook Islands Development Agency New Zealand (CIDANZ) and the Auckland Teaching Gardens Trust (ATG), have developed a strong working relationship which blends their community initiatives to be more widely beneficial to the community.

11.     The draft concept plan captures all of the initiatives and plans for the development of the reserve for the community. It includes current consented proposals and future indicative development.

12.     The draft concept plan is now ready for public and iwi consultation. After the consultation period, submissions will be analysed and reported back to the local board for a decision on adoption of the plan.

13.     In the meantime, some existing activities require an interim licence to occupy, while elements of the concept plan are implemented.

14.     The licence to occupy includes an area to the front of the reserve facing Kirkbride Road, to temporarily accommodate the CIDANZ  teaching kitchen, shared market space and a café referred to in the resolution of 16 May 2018. It will also house the already approved relocatable war memorial.

15.     The licence to occupy requires public and iwi consultation and can be undertaken at the same time as notification of the draft concept plan.

16.     The licence is required to allow continuity of the community and social services provided by CIDANZ, until their new facility is constructed. It is recommended that a five year licence to occupy to be offered to the group.

17.     Tavaesina Trust operates an existing early childhood education centre (ECE) on Old School Reserve and has an existing community lease. It holds a consented extension of the service and requires some additional lease area. This is shown as item 18 on the plan in Attachment A.

18.     The intention is to notify a new community lease for the new area of land with the same terms, conditions and expiry date as the existing lease, so that when they both expire, the two can be combined into a single renewed lease.

19.     The land is currently an unused portion of the reserve which, when leased to Tavaesina, will provide a better carpark/lease boundary than exists at present.

20.     The concept plan also shows the proposed lease boundary for ATG. A formal report seeking local board approval for their lease will be presented once the consultation period for the concept plan is complete.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

Draft Concept Plan

21.     The draft concept plan shows the proposed future state of the reserve which combines the activities of the existing early childhood education centres, the Auckland Teaching Gardens and the activities of CIDANZ.

22.     The draft concept plan is an integrated development approach with greater recreational, educational and cultural use of the land, by increasing linkages between the key stakeholders. It improves traffic safety and provides age appropriate play spaces. At the same time it integrates the heritage elements of the reserve with the proposed developments.

23.     The draft concept plan, if adopted, will determine the land tenure requirements for the teaching gardens and CIDANZ, who will have leases for their defined areas of activity.

24.     The indicative position and future lease footprint of the CIDANZ new building is shown on the plan. The plan also removes the old gravel track in order to prevent the track from interfering with the future use of the consented CIDANZ ECE.

25.     When the CIDANZ ECE is operational, the gravel track traffic and pedestrian safety will be managed by interim traffic management measures which will slow vehicles. This includes speed limit signs and a raised, marked temporary pedestrian crossing, as well as CIDANZ ECE staff crossing wardens. Staff are currently in discussions the ATG over the use of the track by delivery vehicles to the gardens, so that risks can be further minimised.

Licence to Occupy

26.     The existing CIDANZ activities to the front of the Reserve will eventually cease.  These will include the removal of the existing house and shed.

27.     Current activities include a garden between the two buildings, the packing shed social enterprises, a café/caravan and a small artificial grassed meeting space. These activities are to be defined in the licence to occupy, to allow for the continuation of the land uses, while the concept plan is progressively implemented (Attachment B)

28.     A five year term is envisaged which will allow time for the future CIDANZ building to be funded, designed and constructed, along with the consented ECE.  Improvements will also be made to the current gravel track (which will eventually be closed to vehicular traffic).

29.     The licence to occupy is the best instrument to allow the CIDANZ land use activities as an interim measure. Because the land is held under the Local Government Act 2002, council is required to consult with iwi and the public prior to granting a licence to occupy.

30.     If submissions are received they can be heard by the local board or an appointed commissioner before a decision is made on whether to grant a licence to occupy.

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

31.     Local Board support for the proposed activities, development of the reserve and draft concept plan is indicated by the resolution and workshop as discussed above (MO/2018/75).  Local impacts will be positive by providing a central recreation, health, education and wellness hub that reaches all elements of the community.

32.     The draft concept plan and its land uses align with the zoning and purpose of the land, and further supports the retention of the land as a place for community recreation.

33.     The combination of heritage preservation, early learning, teaching gardens, cultural, community and social enterprise activities on the land makes the reserve a key part of achieving the local board objective of creating facilities for diverse needs. 

34.     The incremental implementation of a concept plan will cement the Old School Reserve as a focus of community use and co-operation.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

35.     Iwi will be engaged with during the public notification of the licence to occupy and consultation relating to the draft concept plan, as required under the Local Government Act 2002 and the Conservation Act 1987.

36.     The licence to occupy and the draft concept plan will both provide local benefits for many communities, including Māori, through the provision of community facilities that provide a wide range of social and community opportunities.

37.     Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its broader legal obligations to Māori. Support for Māori initiatives and outcomes are detailed in Te Toa Takitini, Auckland Council’s Māori Responsiveness Framework.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

38.     There are no financial implications to notifying the draft concept plan or the licence to occupy. Costs will be met by current budgets and existing LDI funding for the development of the draft concept plan.

39.     Implementation of the groups’ aspirations – CIDANZ, Tavaesina Trust and ATG – will be delivered and funded by each of the groups. Park infrastructure shown on the concept plan will be implemented in stages as funding allows (refer to Attachment C showing the recommended stages).

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

40.     There are no significant risks in the proposal. There may be a risk that submissions received from the community could lead to a potential change in the plan prior to a report for adoption.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

41.     If the local board resolves to notify the draft Old School Reserve Concept Plan, licence to occupy and new community lease, officers will undertake the necessary processes required.  Thereafter all submissions will be analysed prior to the findings being reported back to the local board with recommendations.
