·        Preparation of an economic development overview presenting a range of indicators on the Henderson-Massey economy, issues and opportunities

·        The Business Improvement District (BID) Partnership programme in Te Atatu and support for the Henderson Central Retailers Association

·        Support for the roll out of ultrafast broadband and the sustainable and targeted provision of public WiFi.

3.          The proposed 2014/2015 work programme builds on existing activities.



That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)   Receives the six-monthly update on local economic development activities from July to December 2013.

b)   Provides feedback on the proposed 2014/2015 local economic development work programme of:

i.        Economic analysis and planning for the local economy in Henderson-Massey.

iii.      Support for the roll out of ultrafast broadband and the sustainable and targeted provision of public WiFi.

c)   Nominates Local Board Member(s) to attend the Business Improvement District Policy (2011) review workshops and represent the view of the Local Board.



4.       Economic Development Department champions Auckland’s Economic Development Strategy (EDS), which aims to develop an economy that delivers opportunity and prosperity for all Aucklanders and New Zealand.  The department works with ATEED, business, Government and community stakeholders to lead local economic development, regional economic strategy and policy advice, economic analysis and advocacy, digital policy and international relations on behalf of Auckland Council.

5.       This report focuses on local economic development activities in the Henderson-Massey  Local Board area.  An overview of the regional economic work programme undertaken by the Economic Development Department and ATEED to implement the EDS is provided to the Economic Development Committee, and is made available for information to Local Boards.  

6.       Under the guidance of global city development expert Greg Clark, and with the assistance of representatives from business, the wider Auckland Council and Government, critical priorities for Auckland’s future economic performance have been identified.  These are to:

·        Establish a new Auckland Leadership Team

·        Raise youth employability.  At the local level this means:

increasing the number of opportunities for young people to gain work experience

·        Build, retain and attract talent. At the local level this means:

encouraging our businesses to invest in skills

thoroughly understanding Auckland’s skills shortages

·        Build the Auckland business proposition for a business-friendly city

·        Boost the investment rate into Auckland’s economy and infrastructure

·        Motivate greater investment in products, services and markets. At the local level this means:

promoting the benefits of innovation and entrepreneurship

creating and connecting spaces for innovation and entrepreneurship

·        Increase Auckland’s visibility internationally

·        Optimise Auckland’s platforms for growth: housing, transport and availability of employment land. At the local level this means:

developing and adopting a new implementation model to achieve growth in key locations – CBD and metropolitan centres

leveraging the fibre network to its full potential

·        Support improved performance of Māori businesses.  At the local level this means:

working to support Māori businesses to grow.

7.       We are planning a workshop with Local Board economic development portfolio holders, ATEED and the Economic Development Committee on making local economic development in Auckland more strategic, focused and united. Further information will be provided through the Local Board Advisors.

Economic Development Overview

8.       An economic development (ED) overview has been prepared for the Henderson-Massey Local Board area.  The overview outlines the current economic picture in Henderson-Massey, recent trends, and identifies particular strengths or points of difference the local board area has in comparison to the region wide picture. It is primarily a data driven view drawing on the statistics available covering a range of indicators including demographics, incomes and housing, education and skills, employment and occupation, sectoral strengths, business growth and development trends.

9.       The overview has been distributed to Local Board members, Council departments and BIDs.     It can be used as a key input to developing a Local ED Action Plan for Henderson-Massey should the Local Board allocate funds to develop a Local ED Action Plan. The information can also inform the Local Board Plan currently under development.

10.     In 2012, GDP in Henderson-Massey was $2.9 billion, which was 3.7 per cent of the Auckland regional GDP. Manufacturing and retail trade are the dominant sectors in the Henderson-Massey economy.

Henderson-Massey’s industrial mix by GDP (2012)

Source: Infometrics


11.     Stand out facts about Henderson-Massey from the ED overview include:

·        In terms of employment, the main sectors are those related to servicing the local population (such as education, health, residential care, local government) which is the second largest of all Local Board areas.

·        Residents are less likely to have a degree level qualification or higher and more likely to have no qualifications than the regional average.  The proportion of young people not in education employment or training is high.

·        Unemployment is higher and average household incomes are lower than the regional average.

·        Manufacturing remains the most important sector in terms of GDP with strengths in fruit, oil, cereal and other food product manufacturing, meat and meat product manufacturing and polymer product and rubber product manufacturing.

·        Henderson-Massey has strengths in a number of sectors in which Auckland competes internationally including construction and engineering, food and beverage, health technologies and niche manufacturing.

12.     Employment in Henderson-Massey increased by an average of 1.8 per cent pa in the ten years from 2002-12, similar to the Auckland growth rate of 1.9 per cent.  During this period, Henderson-Massey job numbers increased most in healthcare and social assistance (+1,570 jobs), public administration and safety (+900), education and training (+790), wholesale trade (+330), other services (+300) and construction (+290).

13.     The ED overview includes the following initial assessment of the strengths, challenges and opportunities within the local economy.

BID Partnership Programme

14.     The BID Partnership Programme approach is a public-private partnership between business associations that have a commitment to develop and promote their local business environment and Auckland Council.  In work to date since Auckland Council was established there has been a focus on sharing best practice and developing consistent governance, processes and practices across the region’s 46 BIDs.

15.     Each BID has signed a Partnering Agreement with Auckland Council.  These agreements define the relationship between Auckland Council and individual business associations operating as BIDs.  Several have also signed a discretionary Memorandum of Understanding with their Local Board. The MOU is an opportunity to agree mutual goals and objectives and to support each other’s programme of work where applicable. 

16.     BID Partnership Advisors hold monthly networking meetings for BID managers and interested business associations that focus on professional development and sharing information and best practice. Topics covered from July to December 2013 include:

·        Auckland Transport (importance of good parking in our centres)

·        AGM checklist and meeting procedures

·        ATEED local events

·        WiFi how to make the most of Apps

·        Overseas conferencesreport back and learnings from BID attendees

·        Signs and alcohol bylaws

·        Social enterprises

·        Using Marketview results for business attraction

·        Media awareness

·        Your Website how to review it and improve it

·        Using information from Local ED Overviews and opportunities to engage with Local ED Action Plans  


17.     A refresh of the Auckland Region Business Improvement District Policy (BID Policy 2011) will be undertaken in 2014. The proposed BID Policy will go before the Regional Strategy and Policy Committee for final approval in November 2014.

18.     The process to review the BID Policy will involve consultation with both business associations and Local Board representatives. Separate workshops will initially be held for the two stakeholder groups, followed by a combined workshop with both the business associations and Local Board representatives. Local Board representative(s) are sought for involvement in the review process.

19.     Any suggestions made at these workshops to amend the existing BID Policy (2011) will be brought before the Local Board for its consideration and feedback.

20.     There is much activity happening with the establishment of new BID areas (including State Highway 16 and Devonport, who will be balloting in March 2014). Several other locations are actively working with the BID team on preparatory work towards establishment. Existing BIDs undertaking expansion ballots prior to June 2014 include Otahuhu and Manukau Central.

21.     Twenty-seven existing BIDs have chosen to increase their amount of target rate for the 2014/2015 financial year. Every one of these proposed increases has followed the process of advising all members and receiving approval of the proposed new amount from members at Annual General Meetings.

Te Atatu Peninsula BID

22.     The Te Atatu Peninsula Business Association held their AGM on 11 September 2013 with a good turnout and a presentation from the group organising the 2014 Harbourview Sculptural Trail. The BID Manager provided a review of past activities and presented the Te Atatu Peninsula Strategic Plan. The members ratified and adopted the strategic plan with enthusiasm looking forward to the next year’s progress. The members also ratified and adopted the BID target rate for 2014/2015 which remains at $82,000 per annum.

23.     The Te Atatu Peninsula BID Manager has been working hard since coming permanently onboard and has started to implement actions from the strategic plan. Actions include a review of the Te Atatu Views community newsletter, budget and costings plus refocusing events and promotions to provide benefit to the local businesses, and a business retention and attraction programme.

24.     The Te Atatu Views magazine is now quarterly, full colour, bigger in size and volume and delivered within budget. Feedback has been fantastic from both the businesses advertising and the community.

25.     The BID Manager has developed good relationships with the members and business involvement in promotions and events is increasing.

26.     Work has commenced in the new Te Atatu Peninsula Library and Community Centre, which is certain to be a draw for the town centre and focal point for promotions and events.

Henderson Central Retailers Association Inc

27.     The Henderson-Massey Local Board has provided funding for the BID team, in association with the Henderson Central Retailers Business Association and ATEED West, to undertake a pre-BID fact finding survey. This work will identify the issues, concerns and opportunities facing Henderson business owners. The survey would include businesses located in the Henderson Central/South and Henderson Valley area.

28.     A working party has been formed including representation from Henderson-Massey Local Board, Henderson Central Retailers Business Association, ATEED West, and Henderson property owners and business owners.

29.     A business database containing over 800 business entities has been purchased and the survey questions and documents are currently being developed. The survey is scheduled to begin in early March 2014 with a report scheduled for presentation to the Henderson Massey Local Board in May 2014.

30.     The objective of the Henderson pre-BID fact finding survey is to establish if there are some galvanising issues/opportunities that bring together businesses in the area, supportive of being part of a business network or association. The information collected in the survey will provide evidence of support to continue on to establish a Henderson BID Partnership Programme starting July 2015.

Ultrafast Broadband

31.     The third year of the rollout of Ultrafast broadband (UFB) ends on 30 June 2014.  The rollout is a third of the way through the nine year programme. So far over 60,000 premises region wide can connect to UFB with just over 11per cent of these premises connected. This is in line with the rate of uptake predicted at the start of the UFB rollout. 

32.     Chorus intends to provide updates to Local Boards on the progress of the rollout in each area and Council officers will work with Local Board services to arrange times in the appropriate Local Board Workshops as the updates become available.


Public WiFi

33.     Public Wi-Fi is available in all 56 libraries and in 23 public open spaces around Auckland.  In January 2014 the Libraries WiFi service was used 173,000 times by 110,000 people totalling 7.7 million minutes of free Wi-Fi usage.  The public open space service has been experiencing network stability issues and this has limited usage.  These issues are now resolved and we expect to see usage grow in line with Libraries usage.  The public open space service was used 49,631 times by 44,419 people totalling 893,494 minutes of free WiFi usage.


Work programme 2014/2015

34.     The proposed 2014/2015 local economic development work programme in the Henderson-Massey Local Board area is set out below.

Community Transport


School Transport Programme and Road Safety Education

69.     The number of schools signed onto the TravelWise Programme has now reached 375.

70.     Key activities that were undertaken with the schools included, safety at the school gate parking enforcement, speed enforcement campaigns undertaken with the NZ Police, cycle training, scooter training, school leadership programme for intermediate and high school students and school curriculum transport related activities targeted at road safety and school travel options.

71.     Walking School Buses now number 359 in the region with a continued programme of recruitment and recognition for the volunteers who accompany the buses. 

72.     Demand for cycle training is still strong from schools and greater partnerships with the NZ Police, Sports Trusts and Bike NZ have been developed to deliver cycle training and cycle safety.

73.     The following regional road safety education campaigns are being delivered over the for the coming six months: 

Red light running campaign – focused at all road users

Pedestrian safety campaign – focused on youth and at risk sites

Cycle safety- focused on training, maintenance and share the road

Back to school speed campaign  - focused on targeting drivers speed around schools

Road Corridor Maintenance



77.     The new road maintenance contract is “bedding in” and providing good operational and customer services within the Henderson – Massey, Waitakere and Whau local board areas. The inclusion of additional berm and vegetation management items since the issuing of the last report was supplied and exceptional growth conditions regionally, had bogged down the reactive capability of the contractor in the last 2 months of 2013. A change in methodology has been developed between Contractor and RCM management which will make treatment and information supply easier going forward. Unfortunately some additional cost implications as a result of these changes will affect overall budget allocations. Cost and activity reductions will have to be implemented in other areas for the remaining 2013 – 14 programs. Additional funding will be sourced during budget calculations for the next financial year.

78.     Progress in the large pavement reconstruction works and footpath renewal are on target throughout the western area. Pavement rehabilitation works have been or are nearing completion in Margan Ave, Kinross St, Henderson Valley Rd and View Rd. Projects that are continuing into 2014 and a list of forward works for your reference, that will soon be underway in the western network are - Birdwood Rd, Nikau St, Kervil Ave, Rimu St, Blockhouse Bay Rd and Titirangi Rd .

79.     Programming, investigation and design works are well underway for the sites allocated for 2014 – 15 program with future works in the design area targeting network sites beyond 2016 where possible.

80.     The extensive resurfacing program is also underway throughout the central – west region. To date 5.5km of asphalt surfacing has been completed to December. The schedule of activities includes approx. 12.5km of Asphaltic Concrete surfacing and 35km of various Chip Sealing (resealing) sites. This program continues on from the previous 3 years, due to recent bitumen price increases and site pre-sealing repairs costing more than expected, the total quantities have had to be reduced to match the budget allowance. 

81.     The slip repairs have been undertaken in the 5 sites Titirangi Road and Titirangi Beach Roads noted in the last report. Major retaining structures and road strengthening have been completed in Candia Road and Laingholm Drive. Final detailed design and both building & resource consents are in hand for a major slip repair site on Titirangi Road.

82.     Investigation of any opportunities to “future proof” the western network against storm and flooding impacts continues to be high priority, but funding through NZTA is unfortunately difficult to obtain for these works.



83.     Completed the section of Tamaki Drive (Okahu section) with new poles and luminaires in accordance with the Tamaki Drive approved upgrade report. There are only 25 poles and lights to complete the upgrade between Ngapipi Road and The Strand.

84.     St George Street Papatoetoe is currently being upgraded with new poles and lights.  The former decorative type lights will become gas look alike lights for decorative purpose only.

85.     Bowen Street in the CBD has been upgraded to provide increased safety for pedestrians walking into the city especially from the university at night.

86.     Installation of new lights and poles supporting the Vector undergrounding programme removing overhead lines. Areas where undergrounding has taken place are Epsom, and Penrose.



87.     The 2013/14 resurfacing programme ($15.3M) commenced during the period. All Chipseal sites are expected to be completed by early April and the Asphaltic Concrete sites by end of May 2014.

88.     The 2013/14 Pavement Rehabilitation and Reconstruction programmes are well underway. A large number of the sites were either completed or commenced during the period. Some of the completed sites include, Princess St Otahuhu, Te Irirangi Drive - Smales to Accent, Great South Road – Grande View to Corin and Ronwood to Gladding, Mahia Road – Coxhead to Hobart, Hill Road – Hill to Grande Vue, Hunua Gorge, and Pukeoware Road rehabilitation.

89.     The preseal repair, footpath and kerb/channel programmes of work are underway. The Contractors main focus during the period was to complete the works associated with the 2013/14 resurfacing and pavement rehabilitation sites.


90.     Following months of planning between Auckland Council Stormwater, Watercare and RCM, a major upgrade of Carlton Gore Rd, between Davis Crs and George St, has commenced. The objective of this 6 month project is to upgrade the public stormwater system, separate the existing combined sewer system to prevent on-going sewer overflow discharges to the New Market Stream and to reconstruct the deteriorated road pavement. The three members of the Auckland Council Family have engaged Downer to undertake all components of the work to ensure disruption to the local businesses and residents is minimised and to achieve value for money for ratepayers.

91.     The pavement rehabilitation of Woodward Rd, between New North Rd and Carrington Rd, has been completed. This work was completed in collaboration with Kiwi Rail during a weekend shut down for the electrification of the Western rail line to minimise disruption to public transport users.

92.     After a major internal and external stakeholder management consultation period between RCM, RCA, PT and Downer,  approximately 11000 square metres of Jervois Road, between Ponsonby Road and Clarence Street were resurfaced over Labour Weekend.


93.     Spring growth has made berm mowing an area of focus for the Central team.

94.     Following consultations with local Iwi and the New Zealand Historical places trust, The Orakei Road (Shore to Ngapipi roads) road Rehabilitation Project is now underway.Completion is programmed for early March 2014.

95.     Negotiations between ATs maintenance contractors and the UFB Project contractors have now concluded. These negotiations which were driven by the Central AT Team have opened the way for ATs footpath contractors to upgrade footpaths and install UFB simultaneously.

Auckland Transport Update Report – Henderson-Massey Local Board


File No.: CP2014/03232




Executive Summary

The purpose of the report is to respond to Local Board requests on transport-related matters and to provide information to Elected Members about Auckland Transport activities in their Board area.




That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)    Receives the Auckland Transport Report for the Henderson-Massey Local Board be received.

b)    Determines which bus shelters they would like to include in a programme of glass artwork to be forwarded to Auckland Transport.







1.    Auckland Transport is scheduling workshops for Councillors and Local Board Members for the second and third weeks of April 2014.  The workshops aim to gain early feedback and options for Transport as input into Auckland Council’s 2015-25 Long Term Plan (LTP) and the Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP). 


2.    Formal consultation on the Transport component of Auckland Council’s Long Term Plan, and on Auckland Transport’s Regional Land Transport Programme, will take place in January and February 2015.



3.    The Public consultation feedback period  finished on 7 February 2014. 161 submissions were received on the proposal. Auckland Transport is presently reviewing all the feedback. 




4.    Auckland Council Property Limited (ACPL) is undertaking the acquisition phase of the Te Atatu Corridor Improvement Project.


5.    At this stage ACPL has been working on this project for over 2 years and can report that:


6% of the owners are still working with ACPL to agree reinstatement or financial compensation


5% of the owners are at the verbal agreement stage, having resolved both reinstatement work and financial compensation, but have yet to sign agreements


89% of the owners have signed acquisition agreements or have already settled


6.    Events since the last update in November 2013: For the owners yet to sign agreements, the serving of Section 23 notices pursuant to the Public Works Act has begun with 3 currently served and a further 6 to be served within the next two weeks.





7.    A request has come through to Auckland Transport to address the issues of antisocial use of cars in Mihini Road, Henderson.



8.    Auckland Transport is investigating a short term solution that will empower the Police to undertake enforcement while Auckland Transport and the Police investigate suitable pilot scheme (surveillance cameras) to address the bigger problem of antisocial use of vehicles in the Henderson/Massey Local Board area, which includes Mihini Road.


9.    Auckland Transport Traffic Bylaw 2012 – Clause 15 Light motor vehicle restrictions, allows Police to deal with anti-social behaviour associated with car users doing this sort of activity.  This clause allows for cars that are not visiting specific addresses on a road, to be prohibited from a road during the hours of 9pm and 4am. 


10.  Auckland Transport understand that the Police will find this to be a useful tool in dealing with problems of this sort.  The Concourse and Mihini Road look like they would be a appropriate roads for this bylaw restriction to be used because there are few venues along this road which would be having customers arriving during the prohibited times.  It is harder to use this power if there are late night venues on a street and car drivers can claim to have been visiting these premises. 


11.  At present our Road Corridor Operations is submitting a report to the Traffic Control Committee for approval to enforce this bylaw for “The Concourse and Mihini Road.




12.  Auckland Transport has been working with the Henderson Retail Business Association and the previous Henderson/Massey Local Board, on ways to improve parking restrictions throughout the Henderson Town Centre. The existing short stay parking restrictions of 30-minutes or less, do not provide sufficient time to accommodate the main retail and commercial activities. In addition, the current range of parking restrictions can be confusing and, result in an excessive number of parking signs in a relatively small area.


13.  In order to address this issue Auckland Transport and the Henderson/Massey Local Board have developed a proposal to install a ninety minute parking zone throughout the main town Centre.


14.  This proposal involves changing many of the existing on-street parking restrictions, which will reduce the number of signs and different restrictions. The type of signage used to describe parking restrictions will also change. The restriction would operate from 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Sunday. The total number of parking spaces will remain the same.


15.  The P90 parking zone will be demarcated by “P90 Zone begins” at the entry points to the zone and “P90 Zone ends” at exit points from the zone. “P90 zone” repeater signs will be installed at 200 metre (or less) intervals. Other varying restrictions within the zone will be indicated by signs and road markings.


16.  The proposal will reduce the total number of parking signs and should improve how the streetscape looks and feels, reduce footpath clutter, help pedestrian flow and provide a safer walking environment.


17.  The proposal involves changes to the existing parking restrictions in the following areas-


a.   Great North Road P5, P15, P30 and P60 restrictions will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


b.   Waitakere Lane - P30 will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


c.   Trading Place P30 and P60 restrictions will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


d.   Ratanui Street P15, P30 and P120 restrictions will change to P90 parking zone restrictions


e.   Alderman Drive - P60 and P120 restrictions will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


f.    Railside Ave - P30 restrictions will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


g.   Edsel Street P30 restrictions will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


h.   Catherine Street P30 restrictions and unrestricted spaces will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


i.    Pioneer Street P30, P120 restrictions and unrestricted spaces will change to P90 parking zone restrictions.


j.    Existing Mobility Parking, Bus Stops, Taxi Stand, Loading Zones, P5 pick up and drop off areas, Police Parking and “No Stopping at All-time restrictions (yellow lines) will be retained.


18.  Before making a decision, Auckland Transport is consulting with affected parties and is seeking comments from the Local Board on what is being proposed.



19.  As a part of a wider Auckland Transport’s Bus stops improvement programme the two bus stops outside 2 Gallony Avenue and 9 Gallony Avenue have been made redundant as they are no longer required.


20.  Auckland Transport is proposing to remove the existing bus stop from outside 2 and 9 Gallony Avenue, Massey and suggests the following changes:

·       Removal of the existing bus stop outside 2 Gallony Ave, Massey and installation of a parking bay for a maximum up to three cars. This parking space will be unrestricted i.e. no time limit and will be marked the same as the other existing markings to match the current situation of the parking on the road.

·      Removal of the existing bus stop outside 9 Gallony, Ave and installation of no parking broken yellow lines there. As there is not enough room for the provision of a dedicated parking space between the driveways of 9 & 11 Gallony, Avenue, the no parking yellow broken lines are required to ensure that there is no parking and no blockage to vehicle entrances there.


21.  These changes are planned to be implemented in early to mid-2014. The Transport Portfolio Leads have been briefed on what is proposed.



22.  Auckland Transport has received a request form Colwill School to improve pedestrian safety on Kintara Drive.


23.  Auckland Transport is proposing to install a Kea Crossing on Kintara Drive as shown on the attached drawing. (Attachment A)


24.  Kintara Drive is a local road, and is predominantly a residential area. Colwill School and Colwill Kindergarten are both located on Kintara Drive.


25.  Auckland Transport’s proposal is to install a Kea Crossing on Kintara Drive. In order to achieve sufficient visibility for pedestrians crossing the road, NSAAT lines are also proposed as per the attached drawing.


26.  The proposal of installing a Kea Crossing on Kintara Drive would help pedestrians especially school children and parents cross Kintara Drive safely during Kea Crossing operational periods. The proposed NSAAT lines indicated on the drawing attached would also help pedestrians cross roads safely outside the Kea Crossing operational periods. Therefore, the installation of a Kea Crossing as per attached drawing would improve pedestrian safety on Kintara Drive.


27.  22 consultation letters were sent to the affected residents, property owners, Colwill School and Colwill Kindergarten on Kintara Drive in January 2014.   Consultation with the affected residents and property owners on Kintara Drive has now been completed.


28.  The following responses were received:

·    4 supported the proposal

·    Colwill School and Colwill Kindergarten supported the proposal

·    1 with no reference

·    1 objected to the proposal. This is because the proposed location of a Kea Crossing is close to the resident’s property, and the resident is not happy for the on-street car parks to be removed outside his property. The current on-street car parks outside his property are time-restricted, with no parking from 8-9am and 2:30-3:30pm. The resident requested to keep current parking restrictions, and not remove the car parks completely. The resident was advised that this crossing facility will also be used outside the Kea Crossing operational periods, NSAAT lines are required to keep sufficient sight distance. The current proposal is according to the minimum requirement to keep sufficient sight distance. The resident has now accepted Auckland Transport’s explanation.


29.  The Transport portfolio Leads have been briefed on what is proposed.



30.  Auckland Transport has received a request from the Local Board to assess a number of streets in the Henderson Massey area for the installation of electronic Driver Feedback signs which display the speed of approaching vehicles.


31.  The Driver Feedback sign is solar powered and does not create any noise during its operation.  It is intended that the driver feedback sign will be rotated regularly in other streets within the Henderson Massey area where speeding issues have been identified or reported.  The proposed site is part of the rotational programme and it is envisaged that the sign will be installed sometime in the next 12-15 months for a minimum period of 6 months.  Plans are attached to this report of the allocated areas where the signs will be installed.


32.  The Transport portfolio Leads have been briefed on what is proposed.





Bus Stop Glass Artwork

33.  The Local Board has recently been provided a list of bus shelters in the Henderson/Massey Local Board area.  The Local Board now needs to determine which of these sites they would like to progress with the installation of artwork for the glass.  When this is determined Auckland Transport PT Operations team will work with the Local Board and engage a local artist to design appropriate artwork with a local flavour.  The approximate order of cost per shelter is $2,000.


34.  Attached to this report is the updated spreadsheet on the financials for the Local Boards information.

Auckland Council Property Limited Local Board Six-Monthly Update
1 July to 31 December 2013


File No.: CP2014/04327





The purpose of this report is to update the Henderson-Massey Local Board of the activities of Auckland Council Property Limited (ACPL) for the six months 1 July to 31 December 2013.

Executive Summary

1.         ACPL’s goal is to be recognised as a “centre of excellence” that brings commercial expertise and provides value for money to Auckland Council across a discrete property portfolio valued at approximately $1 billion.  ACPL provides commercial expertise in property management, the buying, selling of properties and by and strategically developing council assets.   As a substantive CCO with a commercial focus ACPL provides crucial support to a council organisation that efficiently and effectively achieves social, economic, cultural and environmental outcomes for Auckland.

2.         In order to achieve our goal and meet the expectations of the Mayor and the council, ACPL will work towards seven key outcomes over the next three years. These are:

·    Properties managed for the council and Auckland Transport (AT) are fit for purpose and net returns optimised.

·    Place-shaping partnerships are effectively planned and managed to project completion and in accordance with Auckland Plan objectives.

·    ACPL identifies housing opportunities and collaborates with partners to deliver exemplar housing developments, particularly in the more affordable spectrum of the market.

·    Council business interests are managed to protect long term value and achieve budgeted net return. 

·    Property acquisitions are undertaken in a commercially robust manner and in accordance with the council and AT agreed requirements and relevant legislation.

·    Council and AT property disposals are undertaken in a commercially robust manner.

·    The council is provided with a commercial perspective on planning and development initiatives to support effective implementation of those initiatives.

3.         A summary of ACPL activities specific to the Henderson-Massey Local Board is outlined in the Discussion section of this report with supporting detail included in Attachments B, C, and D.



That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)      Receives the Auckland Council Property Limited Local Board Six-Monthly Update Report 1 July to 31 December 2013.




Principles for working together

4.         ACPL’s Local Board Engagement Plan (LBEP) states that a successful working relationship between local boards and ACPL is founded on the following high-level principles which will guide our engagement with the local boards:

·   a shared understanding of and mutual respect for the roles, responsibilities and decision-making authority of local boards, the governing body and ACPL; 

·   transparent and timely communication with no surprises;

·   understanding and acknowledgment of shared responsibilities between the parties;

·   a commitment to a timely response to and resolution of issues raised by local board members;

·   a commitment to early inclusion in the planning and decision making process where issues have a specific relevance to a Local Board;

·   a commitment to flexibility in terms of engagement, recognising differing levels of interest and local relevance across the Auckland region.


5.         ACPL’s commitment to the local boards is outlined in detail in our LBEP, which is attached as Attachment A for reference. 

Workshops and Meetings

6.         A schedule of Henderson-Massey Local Board workshops and meetings attended by ACPL representatives from July to December 2013 is attached as Attachment B. The list includes property specific meetings and workshops relating to general property management and the ongoing portfolio Rationalisation Process.

Property Portfolio Management

7.         ACPL manages all non-service properties. These are properties not immediately required for service delivery or infrastructure development that are owned by Auckland Council or Auckland Transport. The current property portfolio includes industrial sites and buildings, retail tenancies, cafés, restaurants, offices and a substantial portfolio of residential properties. ACPL’s improved property knowledge and understanding has enabled it to optimise revenue streams and identify future opportunities. 

8.         The property portfolio has continued to grow during the last six-months and now totals 1095 properties. Rent arrears and vacancies were effectively managed throughout the period. During Q1 the average monthly collectable arrears rate and vacancies rate were respectively 1.35% and 2.93%. ACPL’s return on the property portfolio for the quarter ending 30 September 2013 provides the shareholder a net surplus above YTD budget of $2m.

9.         Property portfolio information detailing current ACPL managed commercial and residential property within the Henderson-Massey Local Board area is attached at Attachment C of this report. The report includes each property’s classification or reason for retention along with additional notes to identify the nature of the property, such as a café within a library, or a residential property with tenancy in place. It has also been updated to show properties for which council directs that the operating budget and lease revenue will be included in local board budgets from July 2014.

10.       A report indicating portfolio movement in the local board area is attached as Attachment D. The report details all new acquisitions including the reason for acquisition, any transfers and the reason for transfer, and any disposals.

Portfolio Review and Rationalisation

11.       ACPL is required to undertake ongoing rationalisation of the council’s non-service assets. This includes identifying properties from within council’s portfolio that may be suitable for potential sale and development if appropriate. ACPL has a particular focus on achieving housing outcomes. Identifying potential sale properties contributes to Auckland Plan outcomes by providing the council with an efficient use of capital and prioritisation of funds to achieve its activities and projects. ACPL and Auckland Council’s Property Department work collaboratively on a comprehensive review process to identify such properties.

12.       Once identified as a potential sale candidate a property is taken through a multi-stage Rationalisation Process. The agreed process includes engagement with; council, CCOs, local board and mana whenua. This is followed by ACPL Board approval, engagement with local ward and the Independent Maori Statutory Board and finally a governing body decision. A detailed process flowchart is provided as Attachment E.

13.       Council is budgeting to receive proceeds from the sale of surplus properties of $80 million in 2012/2013 and $58 million in 2013/2014. The financial implication of not achieving these budgets would be higher debt and therefore higher interest costs compared to budget. 

14.       Properties currently under review for future use opportunities via the Rationalisation Process in the Henderson-Massey 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. Further details are included in Attachment C.

2 – 4 Henderson Valley Road, Henderson : Central One

Part section of land at Central One. A Waitakere Properties Limited legacy development that ACPL is now progressing. The mixed use development incorporates commercial and possible residential end uses.


Place Shaping and Housing Initiatives

15.       ACPL is contributing commercial input into around 40 council-driven place-shaping and housing initiatives region wide. Involvement extends from provision of initial feasibility advice through to implementation, with projects ranging in size from $400k to in excess of $100million.

16.       A high level update on place-shaping and housing initiative activities in the Henderson-Massey area is outlined in points below.

17.       Waitakere Central (Transit Oriented Development):  This is a Waitakere Properties Limited legacy development that ACPL is now progressing. The mixed use development incorporates commercial and possible residential end uses. Confidential minutes from a Waitakere City Council meeting set out approval for this development along with a request to keep relevant stakeholders updated. ACPL has broached the opportunity for developing all vacant land with several developers. Interest has been expressed in multi-level mixed use development for the site. We anticipate undertaking an RFX process around mid-2014. Sensitivities exist relating to car-parking. ACPL is investigating the viability of a car-parking structure on top of current parking land as a means of resolving this consideration.


18.       Wilsher Village Site: This 1.5 hectare site is partially occupied by 34 Housing for the Elderly units. The site is strategically located in Henderson Valley Road and has been identified as suitable for redevelopment. The Request for Proposals closed in October 2013. ACPL is progressing negotiations with developers.



19.       ACPL continues to support Council and Auckland Transport programmes and projects by negotiating required property acquisitions. All such acquisitions are funded through approved Council or Auckland Transport budgets. We also provide advice to assist with budgets, business cases and strategy to support an acquisition.

20.       A total of 54 property purchases to the value of $8.9m were completed during Q1. The number of acquisitions under active negotiations at the end of Q1 was 300 (253 AT and 47 AC).

21.       Recent council acquisitions have included;

-     meeting open space requirements, particularly for subdivisions

-     City Transformation projects

-     Heritage projects

-     Storm water projects.

22.       Current acquisitions programmes for AT include;

-     AMETI (Auckland Manukau Eastern Tamaki Initiative)

-     CRL (City Rail Link)

-     Te Atatu Road, Te Atatu road widening

-     Dominion Road, Mt Eden road widening.

23.       All properties were purchased within the valuation threshold agreed with Auckland Council and Auckland Transport.

24.       Due to commercial sensitivities any Henderson-Massey Local Board specific acquisitions detail will be provided direct to the local board by the Auckland Council or AT project owner.

Business Interests

25.       ACPL manages eight business interests region wide on council’s behalf. This comprises two forestry enterprises, two landfills and four quarries. There are currently no ACPL managed business interests in the Henderson-Massey Local Board area.


Local Board Views

26.       This report is for the Henderson-Massey Local Board’s information and seeks the views of the Local Board.

Maori Impact Statement

27.       During the past six months ACPL has further developed our Maori engagement initiatives. Our enhanced process engages with the 19 key mana whenua groups in the Tamaki region on three fronts: identifying cultural significance concerns regarding disposal properties, flagging commercial interests and development partnering discussions. ACPL also engages with relevant mana whenua in respect of development outcomes for ACPL lead projects. ACPL has additionally undertaken to be part of council’s Maori Responsiveness Plan pilot programme. The project’s key output will be an operational document outlining how ACPL will contribute to council’s strategic and operational commitments to Maori. The Current State Assessment phase of this project has been completed and we are now in the Improvement Planning phase. ACPL will advise the Henderson-Massey Local Board as appropriate of any specific discussions that arise in the local board’s area.


28.       This report is intended to help ACPL meet its statutory obligations under the Local Government Act 2002. The relevant sections of the Local Government Act 2002 are noted below for information.

29.       As provided in section 59(1) of the Local Government Act 2002, the principal objective of a CCO is to:

(a)    achieve the objectives of its shareholders, both commercial and non-commercial, as specified in the statement of intent; and

(b)    be a good employer; and

(c)    exhibit a sense of social and environmental responsibility by having regard to the interests of the community in which it operates and by endeavoring to accommodate or encourage these when able to do so; and

(d)   the CCO is a council-controlled trading organisation, conduct its affairs in accordance with sound business practice.

30.       As provided in clause 1 of Schedule 8 of the Local Government Act 2002, the purpose of the SOI is to:

·    state publicly the activities and intentions of a CCO for the year and the objectives to which  those activities will contribute;

·    provide an opportunity for shareholders to influence the direction of the organisation; and

·    provide a basis for the accountability of the directors to their shareholders for the performance of the organisation.

Implementation Issues

31.      There are no implementation issues.
