Local board decisions and input into the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028

File No.: CP2019/04731

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To approve local financial matters for the local board agreement 2019/2020, which need to be considered by the Governing Body in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 process.

2.       To seek feedback on regional topics in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       Auckland Council’s Annual Budget contains 21 local board agreements which are the responsibility of local boards. These agreements set out local funding priorities, budgets, levels of service and performance measures. This report seeks decisions on local financial matters for the local board agreement, including:

·   any new/amended business improvement district (BID) targeted rates

·   any new/amended local targeted rate proposals

·   proposed locally driven initiative (LDI) capital projects outside local boards’ decision-making responsibility

·   release of local board specific reserve funds

·   any advocacy initiatives (to be included in the appendix).

4.       Auckland Council consulted with the public from 17 February to 17 March 2019 to seek community views on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10‑year Budget 2018-2028, and local board priorities to be included in the local board agreements. This report seeks local board views on both of these plans:

·   regional annual budget topics: including changes to rates and fees, the draft Tūpuna Maunga o Tamaki Makaurau Authority – Operational Plan 2019/2020 and other budget information

·   the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers.

5.       Auckland Council also consulted on the Our Water Future discussion document. A draft strategy from the Our Water Future discussion document will be developed. Local boards will have the opportunity to provide input into this in early 2020.

6.       Local board views on these regional plans will be considered by the Governing Body (or relevant committee) before making final decisions on the plans.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      receive consultation feedback as set out in Attachment A on the Howick Local Board priorities for 2019/2020.

b)      recommend any new or amended business improvement district targeted rates to the Governing Body.

c)      recommend any new or amended local targeted rate proposals to the Governing Body.

d)      recommend that the Governing Body approves any proposed locally driven initiative capital projects, which are outside local boards’ decision-making responsibility. 

e)      recommend the release of local board specific reserve funds to the Governing Body.

f)       approve its advocacy initiatives for inclusion (as an appendix) to its 2019/2020 Local Board Agreement.

g)      receive consultation feedback set out in Attachment A on regional proposals in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers from people or organisations based in the Howick Local Board area.

h)      provide feedback on the Annual Budget 2019/2020.

i)        provide feedback on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Local board agreements form part of the Auckland Council’s annual budget and set out local funding priorities, budgets, levels of service and performance measures. This report details local board decisions and recommendations that need to be made in April/early-May to allow them to be considered by the Governing Body in the annual budget process.

8.       Local boards also advocate to the Governing Body for funding for projects that cannot be accommodated within their local budgets. These advocacy initiatives are attached as an appendix to the local board agreement.

9.       Local boards are responsible for providing local input into regional strategies, policies and plans. Local board plans reflect community priorities and preferences and are key documents that guide both the development of local board agreements and input into regional plans.

10.     Auckland Council publicly consulted on the following two plans from 17 February to 17 March 2019:

·   annual budget (which includes both regional issues and local board key priorities) 

·   the proposed amendment to the 10-year budget.

11.     Across the region, 2,278 people attended 65 engagement events, including one event in the Howick Local Board area. Feedback was received through written, event and social media channels.

12.     Consultation feedback on the Howick Local Board priorities for 2019/2020 and on regional proposals in the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10‑year budget regarding property transfers from people or organisations based in the Howick Local Board area are set out in Attachment A. The feedback on local board priorities will be considered by the local board before they agree their local board agreement in early June 2019.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Local financial matters for the local board agreement

13.     This report allows the local board to agree its input and recommend other local financial matters to the Governing Body in early May 2019. This is to allow time for the Governing Body to consider these items in the annual budget process (decisions made in June 2019).

Local targeted rate and business improvement district (BID) targeted rate proposals

14.     Local boards are required to endorse any new locally targeted rate proposals or BID targeted rate proposals in their local board area (noting that any new local targeted rates and/or BIDs must have been consulted on before they can be implemented).

Funding for locally driven initiatives (LDI)

15.     Local boards are allocated funding annually to spend on local projects or programmes that are important to their communities. This funding is for ‘locally driven initiatives’ or LDI. Local boards can approve LDI capital projects up to $1 million; projects over that amount need approval from the Governing Body. 

16.     Local boards can recommend to the Governing Body to convert LDI operational funding to capital expenditure for 2019/2020 if there is a specific need to do so, or Governing Body approval may be needed for the release of local board specific reserve funds, which are funds being held by the council for a specific purpose.

17.     Local boards can defer LDI projects where there was an agreed scope and cost, but the project/s have not been delivered.

Local board advocacy

18.     Local boards are requested to approve any advocacy initiatives for consideration by the Governing Body and inclusion (as an appendix) to the 2019/2020 Local Board Agreement, noting that in this triennium, a longer-term approach has been taken to progress initiatives that are unable to be funded by local board budgets. The approach used the annual budget, 10-year budget and local board plan processes to progress and advise on a narrower range of local board initiatives in a more comprehensive way.

19.     As part of the 10-year Budget 2018-2028, additional funding was provided to progress the priority advocacy initiative of each local board (the one local initiative (OLI)). All OLIs are progressing with funding either allocated or earmarked in the 10-year budget. 

Local board input on regional plans

20.     Local boards have a statutory responsibility for identifying and communicating the interests and preferences of the people in its local board area in relation to the context of the strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws of Auckland Council. This report provides an opportunity for the local board to provide input on two plans, the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers. 

Regional issues in the Annual Budget 2019/2020

21.     The annual budget sets out Auckland Council priorities and how it is going to pay for them. The regional consultation on the proposed annual budget focused on two topics:

·   changes to rates and fees

o annual waste management changes

o food scraps targeted rate

o Waitākere rural sewerage targeted rate

o urban boundary rating

o rating of religious use properties

o regulatory fees.

·   draft Tūpuna Maunga o Tamaki Makaurau Authority – Operational Plan 2019/2020.

22.     The consultation on the annual budget also included key priorities for each local board area. Decisions on local board priorities will be made when local board agreements are considered in June 2019.

23.     The feedback form contained one question relating to changes to rates and fees. Consultation feedback received from the Howick Local Board area on key regional issues in the annual budget are summarised in Attachment A, along with an overview of any other areas of feedback on regional proposals with a local impact.

24.     Local boards may wish to provide feedback on these regional issues for consideration by the Governing Body. 

The proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers

25.     The regional consultation on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 focused on a proposal to transfer the legal ownership of $790 million of city centre waterfront properties from Panuku to Auckland Council. Panuku would continue to manage the properties. The resulting ownership structure would reduce governance duplication, increase consistency with other development areas and maximise future flexibility.

26.     The feedback form contained one question relating to this proposed amendment. Consultation feedback received from the Howick Local Board area on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers is summarised in Attachment A.

27.     Local boards may wish to provide feedback on the proposed amendment to the 10-year Budget 2018-2028 regarding property transfers for consideration by the Governing Body.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

28.     The Annual Budget 2019/2020 is an Auckland Council group document and will include budgets at a consolidated group level. Consultation items and updates to budgets to reflect decisions and new information may include items from across the group.

29.     The key impact of the proposed amendment to the 10-year budget regarding property transfers on the group is the potential impact on Panuku. Panuku staff and board have been engaged in the development of these options. Governing Body will make their decision regarding this on 20 June 2019.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

30.     Local board decisions and feedback are being sought in this report. Local boards have a statutory role in providing local board feedback on regional plans.

31.     Local boards play an important role in the development of the annual budget and local board agreements form part of the annual budget. Local board nominees have also attended Finance and Performance Committee workshops on the annual budget, and a special briefing was arranged on the proposed amendment to the 10-year budget regarding property transfers.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the annual budget are important tools that enable and can demonstrate council’s responsiveness to Māori.

33.     Local board plans, which were developed in 2017 through engagement with the community including Māori, form the basis of local priorities. There is a need to continue to build relationships between local boards and iwi, and where relevant the wider Māori community.

34.     Attachment A includes analysis of submissions made by mana whenua and mataawaka entities who have interests in the rohe/local board area.

35.     Ongoing conversations will assist local boards and Māori to understand each other’s priorities and issues. This in turn can influence and encourage Māori participation in council’s decision-making processes.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

36.     This report is asking for local board decisions on financial matters in local board agreements that need to then be considered by the Governing Body.

37.     Local boards are also providing input to regional plans. There is information in the consultation material for each plan with the financial implications of different options.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

38.     Local boards need to make recommendations on these local financial matters for the Annual Budget 2019/2020 by 8 May 2019, in order for the Governing Body to be able to make decisions on them when considering the annual budget in May 2019.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

39.     Local boards will approve their local board agreements and corresponding work programmes in June.

40.     Recommendations and feedback from local boards will be provided to the relevant Governing Body committees for consideration during decision-making, as outlined in the table below:

Additions to the 2016-2019 Howick Local Board meeting schedule

File No.: CP2019/04310

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval for one meeting date to be added to the 2016-2019 Howick Local Board meeting schedule in order to accommodate the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 timeframes.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Howick Local Board adopted the 2016-2019 meeting schedule on 12 December 2016.

3.       At that time the specific times and dates for meetings for local board decision making in relation to the local board agreement as part of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 were unknown. 

4.       The board is being asked to approve one meeting date as an addition to the Howick Local Board meeting schedule so that the Annual Budget 2019/2020 timeframes can be met.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      approve one meeting date to be added to the 2016-2019 Howick Local Board meeting schedule to accommodate the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 timeframes as follows:

·   Thursday 6 June 2019, 6pm.

b)      note the venue for this meeting will be the Howick Local Board meeting room, Pakuranga Library Complex, 7 Aylesbury Street, Pakuranga.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

5.       The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) have requirements regarding local board meeting schedules.

6.       In summary, adopting a meeting schedule helps meet the requirements of:

·    Schedule 7, clause 19 of the LGA on general provisions for meetings, which requires the chief executive to give notice in writing to each local board member of the time and place of meetings.  Such notification may be provided by the adoption of a schedule of business meetings.

·    Part 7, sections 46, 46(A) and 47 of the LGOIMA, which requires that meetings are publicly notified, agendas and reports are available at least two working days before a meeting and that local board meetings are open to the public.

7.       The Howick Local Board adopted its business meeting schedule at its 12 December 2016 business meeting.

8.       The timeframes for local board decision making in relation to the local board agreement which is part of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 were unavailable when the meeting schedule was originally adopted.

9.       The board is being asked to make decisions in early June to feed into the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 process. This timeframe is outside the board’s normal meeting cycle. 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

10.     The board has two options:

i)        Add the meeting as an addition to the meeting schedule.

or

ii)       Add the meeting as an extraordinary meeting.

11.     For option one, statutory requirements allow enough time for this meeting to be scheduled as an addition to the meeting schedule and other topics may be considered as per any other ordinary meeting. However there is a risk that if the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 timeframes change or the information is not ready for the meeting there would need to be an additional extraordinary meeting scheduled anyway.

12.     For option two, only the specific topic Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 may be considered for which the meeting is being held. There is a risk that no other policies or plans with similar timeframes or running in relation to the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and proposed amendment to 10-Year Budget 2018-2028 process could be considered at this meeting.

13.     Since there is enough time to meet statutory requirements, staff recommend approving these meetings as additions to the meeting schedule as it allows more flexibility for the board to consider a range of issues.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

14.     There is no specific impact for the council group from this report.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

15.     This report requests the board’s decision to schedule an additional meeting and consider whether to approve this as an extraordinary meeting or an addition to the meeting schedule.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

16.     There is no specific impact for Māori arising from this report. Local boards work with Māori on projects and initiatives of shared interest.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

17.     There are no financial implications in relation to this report apart from the standard costs associated with servicing a business meeting.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

18.     There are no significant risks associated with this report.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

19.     Implement the processes associated with preparing for business meetings.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      receive the Auckland Transport April 2019 update to the Howick Local Board report.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

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

4.       Auckland Transport continues to deliver a number of strategic projects in Howick, discussed below.

Community Safety Fund

5.       Established, in the 2018 Regional Land Transport Plan, the Community Safety Fund provides for $20,000,000 across all local board for local road safety initiatives. The Fund is allocated in two tranches:

·   $5 million in the 19/20 financial year

·   $15 million in the 20/21 financial year.

6.       Funding is apportioned to local board areas by a formula that is based on the number of deaths and serious injuries in that area. The Howick Local Board’s budget over the two financial years is $985,896.

7.       The Community Safety Fund is a capital budget that can be used to deliver projects raised by the local community to prevent, control or mitigate identified local safety hazards that could result in death or serious injury. Individual projects are to be no greater than $1 million. The projects must consist of best practice components, conform to Auckland Transport standards and comply with New Zealand law.

8.       The Community Safety Fund cannot be spent on projects that are already planned and funded or that clash with other planned projects (including renewals). Complex projects that may take longer than two years to deliver will also not be considered. Nor will projects containing unconventional or unproven components such as new trials or pilot projects.

9.       Community Safety Fund projects must be in the road corridor and be able to be cost effectively maintained. The project’s effect on network efficiency will also be reviewed and any that negatively affect the network will not be supported.

10.     Auckland Transport will soon be engaging with all local boards providing some ideas and seeking advice on where this fund could be best used. Part of the discussion will involve discussing potential safety around schools.

11.     The Howick Local Board has a workshop booked on 16 April 2019 to start discussing use of the Community Safety Fund and would ideally provide resolutions identifying projects by 30 June 2019. The Community Safety Fund is not able to be ‘carried over’ into future years. 

 

Road Safety and Speed Management

12.     Since the Government committed to deliver a new road safety strategy in the 2018 Government Policy Statement on Land Transport, Auckland Transport has been focussed on supporting a Vision Zero approach to traffic safety. This work includes:

·   Reviewing speed limits across the city and using the Speed Bylaw to reduce limits in high risk areas

·   Investing approximately $500 million over the next ten years building more traffic-calming infrastructure around the city

·   Adjusting the focus of the Auckland Transport’s work to include more emphasis on safety generally.

13.     This change helps to address an increasing problem in Auckland, road safety in Auckland (including Howick) has got worse over the last five years. The reasons why include population growth, new demands on the road network, and more people walking, cycling and motorcycling. Both central government and Auckland Transport’s leadership wish to address this situation.

14.     The first major step is establishing a new Speed Bylaw that will consolidate the speed limit changes in a set of local speed restrictions designed to slow traffic down in high-risk areas. Overtime the areas covered by the new bylaw will increase but between 28 February and 31 March 2019, consultation about the first set of speed limit changes took place.

15.     The consultation period is now complete.  Auckland Transport worked very hard to engage with the wider community including:

·   Contacting approximately 500 stakeholder groups across Auckland

·   Keeping local elected representatives informed and encouraging them to submit

·   Radio, print and social media advertising

·   Posting 110,000 letters to people directly affected by the changes

·   Putting posters on public transport and in public places such as libraries, community centres and Auckland Transport carparks

·   Running public drop in sessions in the most affected areas

16.     At this stage, Auckland Transport is still collating and considering the information gathered during the consultation period

17.     Howick Local Board made a written submission and next month a more detailed response can be provided. 

Airport to Botany Rapid Transport Network (RTN)

18.     New Zealand Transport Agency, Auckland Airport and Auckland Transport are working together to plan and build a bus or light rail link between Auckland Airport and Botany. This project will help deliver Auckland Transport’s public transport strategy, providing an east-west RTN that links Auckland Airport with Botany via Manukau.  

19.     The project also includes early improvements projects, including the new Puhinui Interchange.

20.     In November and December 2018 Auckland Transport spent time discussing the project with the community. The information received has been reviewed and consolidated into the plan. The project team is planning to brief the board on the results on 16 April 2019.

AMETI - Eastern Busway

21.     AMETI – Eastern Busway is a $1.4 billion project to build New Zealand’s first urban busway providing congestion free ‘bus only’ lanes for commuters from Panmure to Botany.   

22.     The construction contract for the first part of the project, from Panmure to Pakuranga, was signed January 2019 and construction work is set to start in April 2019.

23.     Recently, Auckland Transport finalised plans for managing the flow of commuters through the construction area. Communicating these plans to the public is underway and the ‘Make a Plan’ campaign is now public.

Figure 1 Make a Plan logo and example of webpage personal story

24.     Auckland Transport have been busy with a range of activities to inform the community about the potential for delays and about the need to make a plan including:

·   Providing information to the public in print, radio and social media to explain that the project is happening, and that change are required

·   Making sure the good information is available through the Auckland Transport website – See this link -  https://at.govt.nz/travelplaneast

·   Sending people to work with businesses and schools to help people plan routes that do not use cars or that travel outside of peak times

·   Improving public transport options to make them more attractive to commuters especially providing a park and ride at Lloyd Elsmore Park that is connected by express bus services to Panmure

·   Bus services will have temporary T2 lanes on Pakuranga Road that will improve reliability

·   Working with the Auckland Traffic Operations Centre to develop plans and procedures for active traffic management using variable electronic information signs and close control of traffic signals to help direct traffic flows

·   Making sure that the temporary T2 lane are monitored using the Auckland Traffic Operations Centre and being able to adjust the operation of them of local intersections to ensure that the best possible traffic flow is maintained.

25.     Recently, concern has been raised about the effect of other maintenance and traffic management projects in the AMETI-Eastern Busway area. It is important that the wider community is aware that all road works planned by Auckland Transport are discussed and vetted between the different teams before they are approved. A project that will have a detrimental effect on AMETI – Eastern Busway work will not be approved.

Analysis and advice

Local Board Transport Capital Fund

26.     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 may be considered if they support a transport outcome).

27.     The fund allows local boards to build transport focused local improvements in their areas. Howick Local Board’s total funding in this term is approximately $3,200,000 (including new money allocated during the recent Council budget process and shown in the ‘Financial Summary’ below).

28.     The following table provides an overall summary of the current LBTCF position, including the increased LBTCF approved by Council and applying from 1 March 2018.This summary does not show the $2,000,000 the local board ‘ring-fenced’ or requested is held in reserve. This action is an internal administrative measure and money in this state is shown in formal reporting as ‘available’.

Detailed Project Progress Report

 

Half Moon Bay Ferry Terminal Completed. 

 

Howick Village Centre Plan

Council has appointed a project manager and Auckland Transport representatives had an initial meeting with them in late December 2018. Another meeting is being scheduled.

In March 2019 the Howick Local Board asked Auckland Transport to ‘ring fence’ $1,000,000 of their LBTCF as a reserve for future delivery of the project. 

 

Cascades Walkway

On 20 August 2018, the Howick Local Board approved construction of the project based on a firm cost estimate of $389,698.

Auckland Transport recently reported that this project would be more and last month stated that the fairest and most sensible way to proceed was that:

·    Auckland Transport cover the cost of the tender process and confirm the final cost

·    After the tender is complete Auckland Transport reviews its position and may be able to reduce the costs or cover the additional cost.

The tender process is complete.

Auckland Transport has a final cost and will cover the additional costs over and above the original estimate. The project will start as soon as possible. 

 

Aviemore Drive Pathway

In March 2019, the Howick Local Board decided that this project should be completed as part of the Howick Walking and Cycling Pathways Plan. It is now being led by Auckland Council. 

When Auckland Council staff have a confirmed cost of delivery for sections that match the LBTCF criteria a decision report will be submitted by Auckland Transport for the local board to consider.  

 

Footpath on The Parade

In March 2019, the Howick Local Board decided that this project should be led by Auckland Council. 

When Auckland Council staff have a confirmed cost of delivery, a decision report will be submitted by Auckland Transport including that cost estimate for the local board to consider. 

 

Botany Downs Secondary College Crossing

This project is progressing well. Engineers have visited the school and discussed the problems with the staff.

Auckland Transport is almost ready to report back, and a workshop is being scheduled to report, review the options and discuss the project prior to a decision being made at a monthly local board meeting.

 

Te Uho o Te Nikau School

In March 2019, Howick Local Board has asked Auckland Transport to commit $1,000,000 of their LBTCF as a reserve for future delivery of the project. 

The local board’s intent is to investigate use of the Regional Community Safety Fund in June 2019 and hold $1,000,000 in reserve in case this does not produce results.

The details of the Community Safety Fund have now been published and are discussed above. This project will be discussed with local board on 16 April 2016.

 

Pakuranaga Road Safety Fence

No direction regarding this project has been provided by the Howick Local Board and it will cease to be reported on next month.

 

Point View Drive Safety Improvements

No direction regarding this project has been provided by the Howick Local Board and it will cease to be reported on next month.

 

 

Local board advocacy

30.     The following table is summary of Howick Local Boards Advocacy Initiatives and progress on them. 

Table 3: Howick Advocacy Initiative Summary

Advocacy Initiative

Key Initiative

Status

A well-integrated efficient public transportation system

Advocate to Auckland Transport to maintain and upgrade existing transportation systems, including improving safety at congestion hot spots.

 

Since the last report Auckland Transport has supported this ‘Key Initiative’ by:

·      Howick Local Board advocacy led to an express bus service being employed as part of the traffic management plan for the AMETI – Eastern Busway

·      Stage One of the AMETI – Eastern Busway is planned to start later this month.

·      The Airport – Botany project continues to progress the team will report to the Howick Local Board later this month. 

Well designed and quality development in Howick

 

Continue to partner with Auckland Transport to develop the Half Moon Bay area as a transport hub

Auckland Transport is continuing to work on its Ferry Strategy that will deliver improvements in ferry services to Howick.  

Continue to develop integrated planning solutions which co-ordinate the planning, design and management of public spaces

In March 2019 Howick Local Board requested Auckland Transport place $ 1 million from the LBTCF in reserve for delivery of the Howick Village Centre Plan

Parks and open spaces allow for a wide variety of recreational activities.

Continue to extend existing walkways and cycle ways, including informative signage.

The Howick Walking and Cycling Pathway Plan is complete and Auckland Transport is working with Auckland Council to help support delivery.

 

 

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

31.     Auckland Council has taken leadership roles in helping deliver two projects that may be all or partially funded by the LBTCF. This arrangement was made by mutual agreement and was noted but the Howick Local Board at their March 2019 public meeting.

32.     This decision has some resource implications for Auckland Council but is an efficient way to coordinate delivery of projects that cross both parks or reserves and the road corridor.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

Auckland Transport consultations

33.     Over the last reporting period, Auckland Transport invited the local board to provide their feedback on one proposal that is included in Attachment A.

Traffic Control Committee Resolutions

34.     This section records Traffic Control Committee Decisions but in this reporting period are no Traffic Control Committee Resolutions recorded for Howick.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

35.     In this reporting period no projects required iwi liaison.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

36.     The status of the LBTCF is still the most significant financial implication this month because there is a significant amount of money in this fund. Approximately $3,200,000 is not currently committed to projects that will be delivered.

37.     In March 2019 the board decided to ‘ring fence’ $2,000,000 in reserve for projects that the members know will not be delivered this term. The intention being to remove this money from consideration and provide the next Howick Local Board with both additional funds to deliver projects and a clear indication of the Board’s priorities.

38.     The implication of this decision is that the Howick Local Board has $1,200,000 available for allocation to projects.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

39.     The proposed decision to receive the report has no risks. Auckland Transport has risk management strategies in place for all of its projects.

40.     Previous reports have highlighted the risks associated with the large amount of LBTCF (approximately $3,200,000) still unallocated. Auckland Transport has suggested that the board consider steps to mitigate the risk of money being spent without due consideration, including a ‘freeze’ on use of the fund and the commitment of $2,000,000 to reserve status does reduce the amount of unallocated LBTCF to approximately $1,200,000.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

41.     Auckland Transport will provide another update report to the local board next month.

Disposal recommendations report - 303 Te Irirangi Drive, Clover Park

File No.: CP2019/02099

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       This report seeks the Howick Local Board’s endorsement for Panuku Development Auckland (Panuku) to recommend to the Finance and Performance Committee the disposal of one council owned property in the Howick Local Board area.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       303 Te Irirangi Drive, Clover Park is a vacant 10,083m2 site. Approximately 9,402m2 of the site is required for transport infrastructure purposes. The balance of the site comprises approximately 681m2 and is recommended for disposal for the purposes of a land exchange with the adjoining land owner.

3.       Consultation with council and its CCOs, iwi authorities and the Howick Local Board has now taken place. No current or future public work use has been identified for the balance of the site through the rationalisation process and feedback received has been supportive of a disposal. As such Panuku recommends that it be divested.

 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      endorse Panuku Development Auckland’s recommendation to the Finance and Performance Committee to dispose of part of 303 Te Irirangi Drive, Clover Park, comprising approximately 681m2 (subject to survey).

 

 

Horopaki

Context

4.       Panuku is required to undertake ongoing review of council’s property assets. This includes identifying properties from within council’s portfolio that are no longer required for public work purposes and may be suitable for sale and development if appropriate. Panuku has a particular focus on achieving housing and urban regeneration outcomes. Identifying potential sale properties contributes to the 10-year budget (long term plan) 2018-2028 and the Auckland Plan focus of accommodating the significant growth projected for the region over the coming decades, by providing council with an efficient use of capital and prioritisation of funds to achieve its activities and projects.

5.       Once a property has been identified as potentially no longer required for public work purposes, Panuku engages with council departments and its CCOs through an expression of interest process, to establish whether the property must be retained for a strategic purpose or is required for a future funded public work.  Once a property has been internally cleared of any public work requirements, Panuku then consults with local boards, mana whenua and ward councillors.  All sale recommendations must be approved by the Panuku Board before a final recommendation is made to the Finance and Performance Committee.  The Finance and Performance Committee makes the final decision to approve a property for disposal.

Analysis and advice

Property information

6.       303 Te Irirangi Drive is a vacant site comprising approximately 10,083m2. The site was acquired by the former Manukau City Council (MCC) in 2002 from its former owner by way of a ‘severance’. Records indicate the site was the unwanted residue from land acquired for other public works. 303 Te Irirangi Drive was then held for flood remediation and future transport purposes.  Since 2010 the site been held by Auckland Council for stormwater purposes.

7.       In 2013 land was taken from the adjoining owner of 128 Ormiston Road, Flat Bush in accordance with the Public Works Act 1981 for roading purposes. In part exchange, the adjoining owner indicated an interest in acquiring a triangular area of approximately 681m2 of 303 Te Irirangi Drive in order to square up their property boundaries. The adjoining owner was advised that any land exchange would be subject to council’s property rationalisation process and would require approval by the Finance and Performance Committee.

8.       Following an assessment, council’s Healthy Waters department advised it had no current or future strategic requirement to retain 303 Te Irirangi Drive for stormwater purposes and that both the 681m2 area required for the proposed land exchange and the remaining larger approximately 9,402m2 part could be rationalised.

9.       The Auckland Unitary Plan zoning for 303 Te Irirangi Drive is Open Space - Informal Recreation Zone. The entire site has a council rating valuation of $3.15 million. The approximately 681m2 area for the proposed land exchange has an indicative desktop valuation of $210,000. 

10.     303 Te Irirangi Drive is not subject to offer back obligations to the former owner in accordance with section 40 of the Public Works Act 1981.

 

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

Internal Consultation

11.     The internal consultation for 303 Te Irirangi Drive was undertaken in September 2018.

12.     Council’s Heritage team advised that 303 Te Irirangi Drive has no heritage assets or issues, and council’s Contaminated Land and Closed Landfill team (now known as the Geotechnical and Geological team) did not record any known pollution incidents.

13.     A review undertaken by council’s Parks and Recreation Policy team against council’s open space provision policy and open space acquisition policy assessed that there is adequate open space provision in the area, 303 Te Irirangi Drive does not connect to existing open space, and that due to the narrow configuration of the site and its steep topography running alongside a major arterial road, it is unsuitable for open space purposes.

14.     Auckland Transport (AT) advised that the larger approximately 9,402m2 part of 303 Te Irirangi Drive was required for transport infrastructure requirements for the planned Airport to Botany (A2B) Rapid Transport project. AT advised it has no requirement for the approximately 681m2 area for the proposed land exchange.

15.     The larger approximately 9,402m2 part 303 Te Irirangi Drive will continue to be held by Panuku for AT’s future transport infrastructure requirements.

16.     No alternative planned or funded public work requirement for the approximately 681m2 balance of 303 Te Irirangi Drive was identified through the internal consultation process. Accordingly, this area is now recommended for disposal for the purposes of a land exchange with the adjoining land owner.

 

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

17.     Panuku attended a workshop with the Howick Local Board in February 2019. At the workshop the board provided informal feedback that it was supportive of a disposal of the approximately 681m2 balance of 303 Te Irirangi Drive.

18.     This report provides the board with an opportunity to formalise its views regarding the subject area.

 

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Following confirmation that AT requires approximately 9,402m2 area of 303 Te Irirangi Drive for the A2B Rapid Transport project, Panuku subsequently contacted Ngaati Whanaunga to advise of the public work requirements for that part and the proposed land exchange for the approximately 681m2 balance. 

Panuku also requested information on any preferred cultural and environmental outcomes that Ngaati Whanaunga would like both council and AT to consider, including kaitiaki recommendations around future management of the land, acknowledgements or other outcomes that council needs to consider as part of a decision to approve the smaller part of the site for disposal by way of a land exchange.

Ngaati Whanaunga responded and advised that it would withdraw its commercial interest, that its cultural and environment interests for all of 303 Te Irirangi Drive can be addressed by providing meaningful input into the A2B Rapid Transport project and that it looks forward to working with both council and AT to provide formal feedback at the appropriate time.

Financial implications

20.     Capital receipts from the sale of properties contribute to Auckland Plan outcomes and the 10-year budget (long term plan) by providing the council with an efficient use of capital and prioritisation of funds to achieve its activities and projects. In the 2018/2019 financial year, the 10-year budget (long term plan) has forecast the disposal of non-strategic assets to the value of of $24 million.

21.     In accordance with the Local Government Act 2002, the annual Panuku SOI states the activities and intentions of Panuku, the objectives those activities will contribute to and performance measures and targets as the basis of organisational accountability.  For the 2018/2019 financial year Panuku is required to recommend to the council’s Finance and Performance Committee properties from within council’s portfolio that may be suitable for sale to a combined value of $30 million and to sell $24 million of property by 30 June 2019.

22.     The approximately 681m2 balance of 303 Te Irirangi Drive is not required by council for a current or future public work requirement that is funded or can realistically be funded in the future. To retain a non-service property for an undefined purpose is contrary to council’s Revenue and Funding Policy principles and would require support from the Finance and Performance Committee given the impact of not realising the sale of a non-service property, and to allocate the operational budget required to hold the site.

Next steps

24.     Following receipt of the Howick Local Board’s resolution, the approximately 681m2 balance of 303 Te Irirangi Drive will be presented to the Finance and Performance Committee.

25.     A plan change seeking to change the AUP Zoning of the approximately 681m2 area from Open Space - Informal Recreation Zone to Residential – Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings in line with the adjoining property at 128 Ormiston Road, Flat Bush will be undertaken following an approval to divest.
