Road Corridor Maintenance


65.       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 2013/2014 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 Avenue, Kinross Street, Henderson Valley Road and View Road. 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 Road, Nikau Street, Kervil Avenue, Rimu Street, Blockhouse Bay Road and Titirangi Road .

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 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.  

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.

66.       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.

The 2013/2014 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.

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.

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.

68.       Central

Following months of planning between Auckland Council Stormwater, Watercare and RCM, a major upgrade of Carlton Gore Road, 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.

The pavement rehabilitation of Woodward Rd, between New North Road and Carrington Road, 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, approximately 11000 square metres of Jervois Road, between Ponsonby Road and Clarence Street were resurfaced over Labour Weekend.

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

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 negotiations which were driven by the Central AT Team have opened the way for ATs footpath contractors to upgrade footpaths and install UFB simultaneously.

Rural North

The focus during the December period was on giving the town centres a ‘spring clean’ before the Christmas period.   The work has progressed well with all townships 100% complete.  With many visitors expected to holiday at the spectacular beach locations in Rodney the coastal unsealed roads (e.g. Pakiri Road and Takatu Road) were given a maintenance run to ensure they are in top condition.

In the North Rural the AWPT programme is progressing well with 1.5 kms completed in December.  To date the AWPT programme is 62% complete (by length).  Cost savings have also been delivered to Auckland Transport with the current spend approximately 10% below the target value.  The reseals programme has been slightly delayed with rain in December and is 56% complete, year to date.  The programme has been updated with the reseals now scheduled to be 100% complete by March.

The Opex and Renewals rolling quarter and year to date budgets are on track.   The overall year to date variance against forecast is less than 1%.


Urban North

Despite being a short month December has had some large and technical works completed within.The Fulton Hogan chipseal reseal program commenced in December and is expected to be complete late March.

The Asphalt resurfacing is 85% complete and the target date for completion is late March early April with the aim of targeting additional monies should they become available.

Rehabs in the North are progressing well with .576 km completed to the end of December however Hugh Green Drive is only 85% completed and has not made the completed works figures for December. The outstanding works for Hugh Green is the asphalt resurfacing which is planned to be tied in with roundabout construction at Spencer Rd.

Kaipatiki Road Subsoils are complete and work has started on Bentley Road.

Colonial Road work due to start at the end of January.

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


Road Corridor Operations


71.       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.

Input to bylaw reviews: Signage, Alcohol controls, Air quality


File No.: CP2014/05023





1.       This report allows the Waiheke Local Board to identify its preferred approach to providing input to bylaw reviews covering Signage, Alcohol controls and Air quality.

Executive Summary

2    The council is carrying out a bylaw review programme to determine the suite of bylaws that are needed for Auckland. This programme is reviewing the bylaws inherited from the legacy councils across approximately 30 topics, and determining whether new bylaws are needed for each of these topics. Three topics have reached the stage where local board input is requested.

3    Signage bylaws cover rules about the display of signs in public areas. Alcohol control bylaws allow the council to established alcohol controls (previously called liquor bans). An air quality bylaw could include measures relating to use and installation of some types of domestic fires.

4    The local board’s comments will feed into draft bylaws that are planned to be considered for adoption for public consultation between now and June 2014.



That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      Delegates to appropriate members responsibility for providing input to each of the above bylaw reviews, before the next scheduled meeting of the local board.



5.       The council inherited a range of bylaws from the legacy councils, which continue to operate until October 2015. These bylaws are being reviewed across around 30 topics, and decisions made on whether these issues should still be regulated through a bylaw.

6.       Input from local boards is typically sought through this process, including before a draft bylaw is submitted to the Regulatory and Bylaws committee.


Local Board Views

7.       This report facilitates the Waiheke Local Board in providing their comments into the reviews of the Signage, Alcohol controls and Air quality bylaws. The proposed bylaws are planned to be reported to the May or June meetings of the Regulatory and Bylaws committee.


8.       Input from the local board is sought in relation to four particular items, as set out in attachment A: Portable signs, Horizontal cross street and vertical pole banners, Poster signage and Events signage. Each of these has an impact on street character and the operation of the business, event or other activity they are promoting.

Alcohol controls

9.       There are approximately 1600 existing alcohol controls across Auckland, made under legacy bylaws. Alcohol can not be consumed in these specified areas, at specified times.

10.     Recent law changes provide the council and police with enhanced powers, and require a review of existing alcohol controls against an evidence-based threshold. A four stage review process has identified a small number of existing alcohol controls where current information does not support the continuation of these existing controls. This means these controls would not apply after October 2015.

11.     Input is sought from the local board on these existing controls, delegations, and signage matters, as outlined in attachment B.

Air quality

12.     Air pollution levels across parts of Auckland currently exceed national standards. Regulation of indoor home heating fires is needed as part of the council’s obligation to protect and promote public health and to improve air quality in Auckland. Other key sources of air pollution – transport and industry – are already heavily regulated.

13.     Input is sought from the local board on a possible bylaw that could: continue existing general rules on what can be burnt in all indoor fires in the Auckland Council area; continue existing emission and efficiency standards for all new home heating fires except those in rural areas; and introduce measures that would accelerate the removal of older existing fires in the Auckland Urban Airshed. Further information is included in attachment C.

Maori Impact Statement

14.     The review of each topic in the review programme includes considering whether that topic includes any elements of special interest to Māori, and if so the appropriate way to seek a greater level of engagement.


Implementation Issues

15.     Implementation issues will be considered once a final approach is determined for these bylaw reviews.

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


File No.: CP2014/04846




1.       The purpose of this report is to update the Waiheke 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 Waiheke Local Board is outlined in the Discussion section of this report with supporting detail included in Attachments B, C, and D.



That the Waiheke Local Board:

a)      Accepts 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 Waiheke 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 Waiheke 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 Disposals

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 in the Waiheke 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.



4 – 6 Belgium Street (Unit 1) – Waiheke Island

Acquired by the former ACC for use as a Service Centre which was to include a future library. However the library has been located elsewhere. one of the proposed locations identified during Waiheke swimming pool feasibility study. The property will be included in a property assessment of all council owned properties on Waiheke. This work will be undertaken by ACPD in early to mid-2014.

15 Waitai Road, Waiheke Island

Property to be reviewed as part of the service lead property assessment in early 2014. Local Board has noted that the property is the site of Waste Water Beds. This detail has been noted and will be taken into consideration as part of the review.                                                                                                                                                                                                              

7 Waitai Road, Waiheke

This was purchased as in the 1950s and used as a council depot. Potential future uses to be reviewed as part of service lead property assessment in early 2014.


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 Waiheke area is outlined in points below.

17.     10 Ocean View Road, Waiheke: ACPL manages the Council owned land at Matiatia adjacent to the wharf. The land is used mainly for parking. There are three commercial tenants and two subtenants located on the land on term leases with demolition clauses.  The area is of considerable significance to local iwi and ACPL is engaging with them on matters relating to the area.


18.     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.

19.     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).

20.    Recent council acquisitions have included;

-     meeting open space requirements, particularly for subdivisions

-     City Transformation projects

-     Heritage projects

-     Storm water projects.

21.    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.

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

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

Business Interests

24.    ACPL manages eight business interests region wide on council’s behalf. This comprises two forestry enterprises, two landfills and four quarries.

25.    A report on ACPL managed business interests in the Waiheke Local Board area is outlined in points below.

-     Horopata (ex Stoney Ridge) Quarry, Waiheke: The Hoporata Quarry has been in operation on this site since the 1950’s although it would appear that the operation was not consented for its current scale.  In November 2013, a resource consent application was granted so operations can continue for up to 20 years.

-     Origin Quarries are the operator, paying a royalty to AC based on sales on a monthly basis.  The sales from this quarry have been somewhat disappointing in recent months.


Local Board Views

26.       This report is for the Waiheke 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 Waiheke Local Board as appropriate of any specific discussions that arise in the local board’s area.

28.    Discussions currently underway with iwi in the Waiheke area are detailed below:

-       Matiatia Wharf: as outlined in paragraph 17, the area at Matiatia is of considerable significance to Ngati Paoa. ACPL is engaging with Ngati Paoa throughout the planning process to ensure all considerations are taken into appropriate account.

-       Stoney Ridge Quarry: ACPL has also been engaging with Ngati Paoa in relation to the resource consent for Stoney Ridge Quarry. See paragraph 25 above.


29.    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.

30.    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.

31.    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

32.       There are no implementation issues.
