MOVED by Deputy Chairperson S Cattle, seconded by Member DP Pizzini:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)         acknowledge the sudden passing of Edyn Rubena-Misilisi. Edyn was an active and talented member of the musical community in South Auckland. She began learning saxophone at Waimahia Intermediate School in a program that was run by the Manukau Youth Orchestra. Edyn was a member of the Manurewa Youth Symphonic band, the Manukau Youth Jazz Orchestra and the Mit Eldnar (Manurewa High School) Band. Through these bands Edyn played at retirement villages, for veterans on ANZAC and Armistice Day, and won an award at the Smokefree Tangata Beats competition. Edyn was also an active volunteer alongside her parents for the Manurewa Lions Club. Edyn will be remembered for the way that she always looked out for and supported new band members.

Feedback on proposed topics for inclusion in the Auckland Water Strategy

 

Resolution number MR/2018/207

MOVED by Member DP Pizzini, seconded by Member A Cunningham-Marino:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)            endorse the proposed topics for inclusion in the Auckland Water Strategy as outlined in Attachment A, with the following feedback:

Aspect of Auckland Water Strategy

Manurewa Local Board Feedback

Draft vision

Note that this vision fits with the views expressed by mana whenua supporting reviving and protecting the mauri of our water.

Draft values

Support values around water efficiency, acknowledging cultural and spiritual values around water, and ensuring our water systems are resilient to changing conditions.

Draft issues

Support cleaning up the Manukau Harbour, our streams and waterways; making sure that development happens in the right places; and the need for infrastructure to be able to cope with the pressure placed on it by housing intensification.

Draft processes

Support education of the community around water as a limited resource, working with the community, and the application of a Māori world view to water.

Draft principles

Support principles around working together, being future focused, and treating water as a taonga.

Other considerations

Note that the need to maintain or upgrade ageing water infrastructure should also be clearly set out in the strategy.

 

b)            note that local board feedback on proposed topics for inclusion in the Auckland Water Strategy will be included in a report to the Environmental and Community Committee in December 2018, seeking approval of the draft Auckland Water Strategy discussion document for public consultation in early 2019.

Draft Contributions Policy

 

Resolution number MR/2018/208

MOVED by Member DP Pizzini, seconded by Member K Penney:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)         endorse its feedback on the draft Contributions Policy 2019 as follows:

Aspect of Draft Contributions Policy

Manurewa Local Board Feedback

Cost of development contributions

·      Support increasing the cost of development contributions.

·      The level of development contribution paid by developers is not high enough to recover the actual cost of growth infrastructure projects.

·      Feel that more accurate scoping of growth projects would show a higher cost, and that the rate of development contributions should probably be higher in order to recover those costs.

 

Unit of demand factors

·      Support the principle that the cost of growth needs to lie where it is triggered.

·      Support development types that place higher demand on infrastructure paying higher development contributions.

·      Are concerned that the demand placed on infrastructure by residential development has been undervalued, and do not support development contribution prices for these development types decreasing.

 

Extending the timeframe for payment

·      Support extending the timeframe for payment of development contributions, since the developer does not receive profit at time the consent is issued.

·      Development contributions should be able to be paid when the developer capitalises their investment, which is after the Code Compliance Certificate has been issued.

·      Auckland Council needs to account for any shortfall that may be incurred by extending the timeframe for payment.

Development type definitions

·      Support these proposed changes.

Remission of DCs for Māori development and social housing

·      Support further exploration of how Māori developments such as marae and papakāinga housing could have reduced development contribution costs.

·      Believe this would be equitable since these developments do not place significant demands on infrastructure.

·      A new development type definition for these kinds of development could be developed to facilitate this.

·      Such a definition would need to differentiate between these kinds of development and commercial projects undertaken by iwi organisations.

Other considerations

·      The board would like to highlight concerns around developers seeking development agreements instead of paying development contributions.

·      Development agreements should only be considered if the private infrastructure being offered meets or exceeds council standards.

·      If developers seek development agreements, the assets vested with council should be of a high standard. They need to at least meet the same standard for council created infrastructure.

·      Any reserve land vested as part of a development agreement needs to be of an appropriate and useful size and form.

·      Council should develop playgrounds rather than taking vested playgrounds in order to ensure these are of a suitable standard as the cost of upgrading and maintaining the vested playground will fall to council after it is vested.

 

b)        request that a copy of this feedback be forwarded to all local boards for their information.
