Strategic Updates

7.       The following strategic updates are provided in this report. All of the board’s nine strategic items will be reported on in the quarterly report in April.

8.       Community Development and Facilities:

Birkdale Beach Haven Community Project

9.       At the board’s meeting on 12 February, at which the board were presented with the proposal that the management of the Early Learning Centres at Birkdale and Beach Haven be transferred to council’s pools and leisure unit, members resolved that officers provide the following information (resolution number KT/2014/7):

“requests a detailed operational annual budget from 1 March 2014 through to 28 February 2015 that does not take into consideration early learning centre operations, and a complete report on the Birkdale Beach Haven Community Project, to be reported back to the board as a matter of urgency”

The board also approved the release the funding to BBCP in three stages (resolution number KT/2014/8):

·    upon completion and signing of the 2013 / 2014 funding agreement, $33,706.50 to be released (50%)

·    two quarterly payments to follow of 25% - 31 March 2014 ($16,853.25) and 30 June 2014 ($16,853.25).

10.     Staff from Community Facilities have worked with BBCP and have now completed the funding agreement for 2013/2014, including schedule one (work programme), two (reporting requirements) and three (licence to manage and operate).  This document is now with BBCP for signing.  Once the document is returned signed, the first payment can be released. 

11.     A request has been made to BBCP for the detailed operational budget which has not yet been forthcoming, therefore the ‘complete report’ requested by the board is not available at this time.

12.     The chair of BBCP has confirmed that a copy of the budget and business plan will be sent to council staff as soon as it is out of the working document stage. Once available this will be shared with the board, along with any other supporting information at the first available opportunity.

136 Birkdale Road

13.     As reported in the February monthly report, 136 Birkdale Road has been acquired by council.

14.     The board, whilst resolving a position in November and December on the acquisition of the property, have not yet formed a view on the funding for both the immediate costs associated with the site and the future development of the site.

15.     The capital budget required for acquisition was provided by the Governing Body (legislation dictates that local boards cannot acquire property). It would therefore be anticipated that ordinarily the consequential opex (operational budget) associated with the acquisition of the asset would be met through regional budgets, and not through the local board budget.  This consequential opex would include the following items:

·        Depreciation

·        Interest

·        Security

·        Refuse

·        Cleaning and hygiene

·        Electricity

·        Building compliance

·        Repairs & Maintenance Building

·        Signage

·        Rodent and pest control

·        Water

·        Grounds Maintenance

·        Outsourced works and services expense.

16.     Given the board advocated for the acquisition of the property, it would be anticipated that the board would meet the longer term costs associated with the development of the site including:

·        Operational costs of consultation and engagement with the community on future use

·        Operational costs of masterplanning (if required)

·        Capital costs of any development on site.

17.     The board will need to consider inclusion of these longer term costs at a strategic level in the Local Board Plan 2014-2017, and following that through the Long-Term Plan process for 2015-2025.

18.     This report recommends that the board’s position on funding, both in the short and long term is made clear to the Finance and Performance Committee.

Colonial Road property costs and revenue

19.     At its meeting on 12 February, the board requested further information on the Colonial Road properties managed by ACPL. This request was both for further information on the planned capital works, as well as on the revenue and expenditure associated with the properties.

20.     Information on the capital works is provided in a separate report from ACPL on this agenda.

21.     Information on the revenue and expenditure associated with the properties is provided via this report at Attachment A.

22.     Parks and Sportsfields upgrades

SLIPs project - Shepherd’s Park car park

23.     The SLIPs project to increase the number of car parks at Shepherd’s Park has exceeded the budgeted amount of $35,000 by $20,000. The cost increase was partly due to the existing car park being 5m on one side and only 3.5-4m on the other. The original plan was to shorten the 5m parks up to 4m and create a footpath using the existing paving, which unfortunately was not feasible. In addition, the requirement for a footpath around the car park came as a resource consent condition.

24.     Due to the timing of the project and the need to expedite the works during the construction season, the board was not consulted as to whether it approved this increased expenditure before construction work commenced.

25.     The board has budget available to meet the shortfall (through board’s deferred capital discretionary fund). Whilst the works are underway it is recommended that the board approves allocation of this additional funding to this project retrospectively.

SLIPs project – Shepherd’s Park lighting

26.     This project covers the provision of walkway lighting following the existing path on the upper fields at Shepherds Park, Beach Haven.  Lighting this pathway will improve safety and allow sports ground users to find their way through the park after night time training sessions.

27.     The Kaipatiki Local Board allocated $53,000 of SLIPS funding for planning towards this project on the 25 July 2012 that was used to undertake the design and consenting process in 2012-2013. This was followed up by a separate resolution to provide a further $200,000 funding in the 2013/2014 financial year for the physical works.

28.     The current design is estimated to cost approximately $180,000 to complete, but an additional $60,000 would complete the final section of the path lighting using a bollard style lighting design option.

29.     During the planning phase of the project specialist, lighting design consultants developed the design for column lighting around the existing path and this has been approved under the Resource Consent number LQ-213825.

30.     Shepherds Park is located in the Beach Haven area of North Shore City and zoned as Recreation 4 in the North Shore City District Plan. There are logical through-route connections linking Cresta Avenue, Melba Street, John Bracken Way and the right-of-way next to Beach Haven Community House. There is also a looping path network (northern loop) heading north from the top of the stair near the Bowling Green, meandering through dense vegetation beside the inlet, returning to the car park north of the clubrooms.

31.     CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) principles recommend lighting through links that are likely to have night time pedestrian usage but not dead-end routes nor routes that are well screened from passive surveillance (i.e. out of view of neighbouring properties). The proposed lighting plan is consistent with this approach.

32.     The proposed design is for mounting the lanterns on six metre high columns to get a good balance between maximising the pole spacing while getting maximum light throw. Similar lights will be fitted at 8 metres height on each of the four existing sports lighting towers on the northern part of the path loop. Low wattage LED lanterns with cool white lamps have been used in the design giving the most efficient and cost effective means of lighting pathways. Lantern-style head units with the lantern and columns painted black at the proposed height are proposed, as they will generally be seen against a dark vegetation backdrop and therefore be less visually intrusive.

33.     There are two pathways linking to the Beach Haven Community House right-of-way.  The proposal is only lighting the path closest to the Community House as this western path was considered to be a safer route after dark.

34.     There is an option of including lighting along the southern path adjacent to the Housing for the Elderly. Staff have been advised that that lighting poles would not comply with the district plan rules, due to the proximity of the boundary and would likely cause an issue for the residents. This part of the path is considered to have less safety issues as it is best lit at the moment due to existing lighting and barrowed spill for other sources.

35.     This section of the path could be completed using the bollard lighting option attached to this report for a cost of approximately $60,000. This would need the resource consent and building consent approvals updated, which would delay the implementation of the project by approximately six weeks. Alternatively, stage one could be tendered without delay and the additional section completed after the football season.

36.     Layout plans and graphics for lighting specifications for both options are attached to this report at attachments B and C.

Tane Mahuta seedling proposal

37.     The council’s heritage arborist has been gifted a ten year old Tane Mahuta seedling and would like to gift it to Chelsea Estate Heritage Park.  The suggested site is attached at attachment D. The board may consider funding a protection fence and information plaque as part of consideration of the SLIPs programme for 2014/2015.  In addition, the current stand of kauri could be extended by three trees to protect the seedling.  The arborist would be happy to discuss this with iwi.

38.     Economic Development

Wairau Valley business network scoping work

39.     The board commissioned a project in 2013 to look at the Wairau Valley and the current state of business networks within the area. In October 2013, BusinessLAB were contracted to complete the business database, make contact with businesses, establish whether there was an appetite for a business association and identify business champions. After initial work in the area, BusinessLAB made contact with a small number of businesses in Wairau Valley who were already looking at creating a business network. BusinessLAB were able to work with this group, and in February 2014 the Wairau Valley Business Association was formed. The project commissioned by the board resulted in two events which attracted a large number of businesses and a high level of support for the new business association, as well as being able to identify issues for businesses in the area and the Business Association benefited from this support.

40.     BusinessLAB have provided a summary report on this project which is attached to this report (attachment E).

41.     The Wairau Valley Business Association (WVBA) recognise that there is a good level of momentum and they would like to continue working with BusinessLAB for the next three months to help with their AGM and following meetings, where roles and responsibilities will be defined and grow the membership of the WVBA. They would also like BusinessLAB to assist them in putting together a grant funding application to go to the Kaipatiki Local Board for ongoing support to help them grow the business association. Because of tight time frames regarding the budget available, the board (through council’s Economic Development unit) could directly contract BusinessLAB for this ongoing work to provide support for the WVBA.

42.     The proposal from BusinessLAB for this work from March – May 2014 is for a total of $9,500 (this proposal is attached at attachment F). The contract would be for this amount, and the board is asked to consider a further $2,500 for contingency and additional expenses, therefore the total for this project is $12,000. There is currently budget available under the following resolution, to be spent on supporting a business association:

Resolution number KT/2013/268

MOVED by Member LJ Waugh, seconded Member NN Kearney:

c)   allocates the remaining ‘Wairau Valley – Glenfield economic development initiatives’ budget of $43,486 to further subsequent work towards a Business Association and investigating infrastructure needs to manage future growth.

43.     Art

Community Arts Programme budget

44.     The board holds a small community arts programme budget (c.$10,500). In previous years, this budget was held sub regionally, with a programme of events being delivered in partnership with other Northern local boards.

45.     The arts and culture advisor and arts programming team have met with the arts and culture portfolio holders to discuss possible allocation of this budget, building on the success of previous programmes delivered locally. Programmes delivered previously have included:

·        Awataha Whanau Day

·        Kaipatiki Pacifica Arts Workshop Day

·        New Kiwi Women Write Their Stories – creative writing workshop.

46.     Finalised information on the recommendations for this year’s budget was not available at the time of writing, so decision making on this budget may need to be delayed until 9 April meeting.

Local Board issues

47.     Anzac Day Services

48.     This year’s Anzac Day Services and support required from board members is outlined below:

·        Birkenhead 10.00am - Master of Ceremonies and a wreath layer

·        Northcote 10.45am - Master of Ceremonies and a wreath layer

·        Glenfield 11.30am - member to read out the Anzac Day Dedication and a wreath layer.

49.     This report recommends that members are allocated to each of the roles are outlined above.

Road Corridor Maintenance

67.     West

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.

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.

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.

The extensive resurfacing program is also underway throughout the central – west region. To date 5.5km of asphalt surfacing has been completed to Dec. 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.

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.

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.

68.     Streetlights

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.

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.

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

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

69.     South

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.

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.

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.

70.     Central

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 3 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.

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.

After a major internal and external stakeholder management consultation period between RCM, RCA, PT and Downer, approx. 11000 m2 of Jervois Road, between Ponsonby Road and Clarence Street was resurfaced over Labour Weekend.

Spring growth combined with the October Local body elections has made berm mowing an area of focus for the Central team. Following high levels of resistance to the change in policy initially, there is now some indications that the levels of resistance, is changing.

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.

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

There were no health and safety issues for the Fulton Hogan team in the month of December.

Road Corridor Operations

74.     One Network

The next step in the integrated road classification system project - ‘collate all feedback and update the ONRC Framework;’ is ongoing this quarter.

AT is currently progressing various Engineering Plan Approvals (EPA) for different packages of work for Waterview and other NZTA SH16 corridor improvements.

AT has also been working with NZTA on SH16 Initiatives to reduce the impact of the on-going works to travel times, particularly for buses.  A package of quick win measures has been implemented to provide improved journey times for buses to mitigate the loss of key bus priority infrastructure.

Measures include the reinstatement of, or new shoulder bus lanes, priority lanes on the motorway ramps and local road network.  NZTA has ensured coordination between the various projects along SH16, with particular regard to traffic management measures and timing of works to minimise the impact on travel times along the SH16 corridor.  Measures for the medium to longer term have been identified and these are currently at various stages of assessment.

Auckland Transport News

Aucklanders are now travelling on more than 200,000 AT HOP cards

4.       AT HOP is a smart-card which can be used for travel on trains and ferries and it is now rolling out to buses across the region.

5.       Auckland Transport (AT) has been progressively introducing the system across different transport modes and a multitude of operators.

6.       Auckland Transport’s chief operations officer says the 200,000 card milestone comes with 95 per cent of the roll-out – due for the end of March – completed.

7.       Under the second phase of the integrated ticketing programme, a new Fares Policy will be developed. This will involve a review of fare structures (e.g. stage-based, zonal, distance-based), investigation of different fare products and passes, and pricing levels.

8.       For more information go to: www.ATHOP.co.nz.

9.       Fat facts:

·        On an average weekday some 236,000 trips are taken on public transport in the region.

·        More than 3 million trips each month are made using the AT HOP card.

·        On an average weekday buses in Auckland travel some 164,000 km – the equivalent of flying from Auckland to London nine times.

10.     You can read the full terms of use of the AT HOP cards, the registered prospectus relating to the AT HOP cards and other information regarding the AT HOP cards on our website or at the Transport Information Centre, Britomart. The obligations of Auckland Transport under the AT HOP cards are unsecured. www.ATHOP.co.nz.

April Local Board workshops – Pre-engagement on Transport LTP

11.     Auckland Transport is scheduling three workshops for local board members, probably in the second and third weeks of April 2014.

12.     The workshops aim to gain early feedback to inform advice and options for Transport as input to Auckland Council’s 2015-2025 Long Term Plan (LTP) and by extension, the Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP).

13.     Auckland Transport hopes that the workshops will also be useful to Local Boards in developing the Transport Advocacy component of their Local Board Plans.

14.     At this early stage, the priority is to understand community preferences and to look for opportunities to improve the alignment of Auckland Transport and Local Board priorities.

15.     The importance of participating in the workshops is that local boards will be able to help shape the options that eventually make it into the draft RLTP, before the draft is written.

16.     The workshops will be designed to be interactive, with a focus on listening. Auckland Transport is particularly interested in elected members’ views on the strategic direction for Transport, the prioritisation process Auckland Transport uses to select projects, and the overall levels of expenditure on Local Roads, Public Transport and Walking and Cycling.

17.     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.       Currently 2/60 and 6/60 Colonial Road – two of the workers cottages are vacant.  The Managers House at 9/60 Colonial Road is also vacant and this presents a perfect opportunity to undertake upgrade works to improve the properties and remedy the issues the properties have with drainage and stability.

4.       This report outlines again for the Board’s reference the vacancy status of these properties and the details of renovation plans.  The report also includes indicative costs for the work as requested by the Kaipatiki Local Board following the business meeting on 12 February 2014.



That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)      receive the Colonial Road Capital Works report.



5.       ACPL manages nine heritage listed Auckland Council owned properties at 60 Colonial Road, Birkenhead.  Details are outlined below.

·        the former Manager’s House at 9/60 Colonial Road, Birkenhead; and

·        two of the cottages at 2/60 and 6/60 Colonial Road, Birkenhead.

The properties are empty due to renovation and maintenance requirements, which include significant drainage work and subsidence issues.  Full details of the maintenance and renovation works for these properties are outlined below.

7.       Renovation Plans: the properties at 60 Colonial Road, Birkenhead require a significant level of work to ensure they comply with safety considerations and are tenantable.  Any works undertaken will need to be done in accordance with the properties’ heritage values.  ACPL has accordingly engaged Antony Matthews, one of Council’s preferred heritage architects, to provide a full scope and options for the renovation of these properties.

8.       The former Manager’s House at 9/60 Colonial Road, Birkenhead requires the following works:

·        interior and exterior painting, including repainting the roof

·        general exterior repairs to the timber work

·        repairs to the cracked brickwork

·        refinishing work to floors and stained timberwork throughout the house

·        replacement of existing vinyl with new vinyl

10.     Provisional costings have been undertaken to establish a budget to undertake the works on the cottages and Manager’s House.

11.     The Manager’s House is a large residence and costs to undertake the works are estimated to be $350,500.  This figure includes the cost for consultants, consent and monitoring fees and a contingency.

12.     The cottage costs to undertake the works are estimated to be $200,500 per cottage.  This figure includes the costs for consultants, consent and monitoring fees and a contingency.

13.     Timeframe for the works is estimated to be May-September 2014.  This timeframe is dependent on a consent process being undertaken and the appointment of a suitable contractor to undertake the works through a procurement process

Maori Impact Statement

15.     This report is an information only report.  No engagement with iwi has been undertaken in gathering of this property management detail.  If the Board elects to propose changes to the uses of these properties, consideration should be given to gathering views of local iwi around those proposed changes.

Implementation Issues

16.     ACPL understands there may be revenue allocation considerations specific to the Reserves Management Act 1977 in relation to these properties.  ACPL provides all revenue gained from leases it manages to Council for allocation and does not have control or decision making power over that allocation.  The Board will be able to allocate revenue as appropriate once the revenue and costs from these properties are streamed to the local board budget in the new financial year.
