Draft Contributions Policy

 

Resolution number PPK/2018/199

MOVED by Member K Winn, seconded by Member W McEntee:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

 

a)            provide the following feedback on the draft Auckland Council Development Contributions Policy 2019:

 

Aspect of Draft Contributions Policy

Papakura 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.

Unit of demand factors

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

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

·      Is concerned that the demand placed on infrastructure by residential development has been undervalued, and does 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.

·      Council needs to account for any shortfall that may be incurred as a consequence of extending the timeframe for payment.

Development type definitions

·      Support the proposed changes to the development type definitions.

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.

·      The board believes 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)    support the draft Development Contribution Policy, contingent on that policy being informed by the evidence of the relative use of new assets as well as existing assets to reflect the apportionment of growth funding, and that this necessitates the completion of the review of existing parks and facililties.

Feedback on proposed topics for inclusion in the Auckland Water Strategy

 

Resolution number PPK/2018/202

MOVED by Member W McEntee, seconded by Member MV Turner:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)            endorse the proposed topics for inclusion in the Auckland Water Strategy as outlined in Attachment A to the report entitled “Feedback on proposed topics for inclusion in the Auckland Water Strategy”, with the following feedback:

Aspect of Auckland Water Strategy

Papakura 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.

There should be a focus on implementing systems and mechanisms that stop the rubbish from getting into the waterways in the first place.

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.

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson F Auva'a, seconded by Member W McEntee:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)         receive the summary of consultation feedback from Papakura residents on the Proposed Auckland Regional Pest Management Plan.

b)        note the recommended changes to the Proposed Regional Pest Management Plan based on consultation feedback with the following feedback:

i)          recommend that the pest species suggested by the board to be added to the plan be looked at again for addition to the plan once it is operative either through a partial plan review under section 100D of the Biosecurity Act, or as additions to site-led programmes.

ii)         endorse the concerns expressed by the community about the inclusion of unchipped cats as a pest under the plan and the need for changes to how cat controls are described in the plan to address those concerns.

iii)       recommend easy to access advice, and if necessary, equipment be made available to make it easy for people to eradicate pests whether plant or animal based.

iv)       recommend Privet on berms and carriageways should be included in the plan.
