Road Name Approval: New Road at 30 & 30A Links Road, New Lynn

 

File No.: CP2018/22826

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval from the Whau Local Board to name a new private road, being a jointly owned access lot, created by way of a subdivision development at 30 & 30A Links Road, New Lynn.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council has Road Naming Guidelines that set out the requirements and criteria of the Council for proposed road names. These requirements and criteria have been applied in this situation to ensure consistency of road naming across the Auckland Region.

3.       The Applicant, Barry Satchell Consultants Limited, has proposed the following names for consideration by the Local Board:

·        Korowha Place (Preferred)

·        Tannery Place (Alternative 1)

·        Brickyard Place (Alternative 2)

4.       The proposed road names have been assessed to ensure that they meet Auckland Council’s Road Naming Guidelines and the National Addressing Standards for road naming. Mana Whenua were also consulted.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      approve a name for the new private road created by way of subdivision at 30 & 30A Links Road, New Lynn, in accordance with section 319(1)(j) of the Local Government Act 1974 (resource consent references LUC-2011-1362 (LUC60014222) & SUB-2016-1166 (SUB60039170)).

Horopaki / Context

5.      Resource consent LUC-2011-1362 (LUC60014222) & SUB-2016-1166 (SUB60039170) was issued 30 June 2016 for the construction of 17 lots and one jointly owned access lot (JOAL).

6.      In accordance with the National Addressing Standards for road naming (the AS/NZS 4819-2011 standard), the JOAL requires a road name because it serves more than 5 lots.

7.      A site and location plan of the development can be found in Attachment A and B respectively.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

8.       The Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines allow that where a new road needs to be named as a result of a subdivision or development, the subdivider/developer shall be given the opportunity of suggesting their preferred new road name/s for the Local Board’s approval.


 

9.       Auckland Council’s road naming criteria typically require that road names reflect one of the following local themes, with the use of Maori names being actively encouraged:

-   a historical or ancestral linkage to an area;

-   a particular landscape, environmental or biodiversity theme or feature; or

-   an existing (or introduced) thematic identity in the area.

10.     Theme: History of New Lynn and Blockhouse Bay due to site location.

11.     The Applicant’s proposed names and meanings are set out in the table below:

Table 1:  30 & 30A Link Road Preferred And Alternative Road Names & Meanings

Applicant’s Proposed Names & Preferences

Meaning (as described by applicant)

Korowha Place

(preferred)

Maori word meaning: (noun) Golf.

Link to the local area as opposite the development site is the Titirangi Golf Club.

Tannery Place

(alternative)

Link to the local area as the earliest industry in Blockhouse Bay was a tannery opened in 1884.

Brickyard Place

(alternative)

The local area of New Lynn is famous for the brickyard and associated pottery which was established in 1852. One of the ceramics companies in the area have been the largest brick producer in NZ throughout the 1900s. The pottery industry has also been very popular at times. As the brickyards located in New Lynn were famous and the largest in NZ, the applicant has noted it is fitting to have a road named Brickyard in the area.

 

12.     Assessment: The names proposed by the Applicant have been assessed to ensure that they meet Auckland Council’s Road Naming Guidelines and the National Addressing Standards for road naming.

13.     Confirmation: Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) has confirmed that all of the proposed names are acceptable and not duplicated elsewhere in the region.

14.     Road type: ‘Place’ is an acceptable road type for the new private road, suiting the form and layout of the road, as per the Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines.

15.     Iwi Consultation: All relevant local iwi were written to (via email) and invited to comment. Most responses from mana whenua were to defer to other groups, who in turn provided no further responses or comments.

16.     No objections or additional comments were raised by Mana Whenua for any of the other proposed names

17.     Community Consultation: The applicant also contacted the New Lynn Rotary Club, the New Lynn Business Association, and the New Lynn Salvation Army for comment on the proposed road names. Only New Lynn Salvation Army responded, commenting that they prefer ‘Brickyard Place’, but were also in support of the applicants other proposed road names.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe /
Local impacts and local board views

18.     The decision sought for this report does not trigger any significant policy and is not considered to have any immediate impact on the community.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

19.     The review sought from the Whau Local Board on this report is linked to the Auckland Plan Outcome “A Maori identity that is Auckland’s point of difference in the world”. The use of Maori names for roads, buildings and other public places is an opportunity to publicly demonstrate Maori identity.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

20.     The applicant has responsibility for ensuring that appropriate signage will be installed accordingly once approval is obtained for the new road names.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

21.     There are no significant risks to council as road naming is a routine part of the subdivision development process, with consultation being a key part of the process.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

22.     Approved road names are notified to Land Information New Zealand who records them on their New Zealand wide land information database which includes street addresses issued by councils.

Annual Budget 2019/2020 consultation

 

File No.: CP2018/23703

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To agree a local engagement event and adopt local content and supporting information for consultation as part of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 process.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council is required to have a local board agreement (as agreed between the Governing Body and the relevant local board) for each local board area for each financial year. The local board agreement will be included in the Council’s Annual Budget 2019/2020.

3.       Consultation on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 will take place from 17 February – 17 March 2019. Local boards will be consulting on their areas of focus for their 2019/2020 local board agreement.

4.       In December, the Governing Body will consider whether to consult on a proposal to transfer legal ownership of waterfront land and related assets to the council parent.  If the Governing Body decides to consult on that proposal, the consultation would take place at the same time as the consultation on the Annual Budget 2019/2020.  As a result, the consultation on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 would require the use of the special consultative procedure.

5.       There will also be concurrent consultation on the Auckland Water Strategy discussion document. A report will be going to the Environment and Community Committee on 4 December 2018 to approve the discussion document for public consultation.

6.       This report seeks agreement from local boards on the Have Your Say event that will be held in their local board area during the consultation period, to give Aucklanders an opportunity to provide face-to-face feedback. It also seeks approval of their local content and supporting information for consultation.

7.       The Governing Body and local boards will agree regional and local items respectively for consultation by December 13. The regional and local consultation items will then be incorporated into the annual budget consultation document and supporting information, which will be approved by the Governing Body on 13 February 2019.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      agree, subject to approval by the Governing Body, to hold the following Have Your Say event in the local board area during the Annual Budget 2019/2020 consultation period:

i)        Annual Budget 2019/2020 Have your Say at the Public Forum section of the Whau Local Board Business Meeting scheduled for 6pm, 27 February 2019 in the Whau Local Board office, 31 Totara Avenue, New Lynn.

b)      delegate to the following elected members and staff the power and responsibility to hear from the public through “spoken (or New Zealand sign language) interaction” in relation to the local board agreement at the council’s public engagement events during the consultation period for the Annual Budget 2019/2020.

i)        local board members and chairperson.

ii)       General Manager Local Board Services, Local Board Relationship Manager, Local Board Senior Advisor, Local Board Advisor, Local Board Engagement Advisor.

iii)      any additional staff approved by the General Manager Local Board Services or the Chief Financial Officer.

c)      adopt Attachment A: local content for consultation and Attachment B: local supporting information of the agenda report for consultation.

d)      delegate authority to the local board chair to approve any final changes required following review by the council’s legal team of the consultation content of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 prior to publication, including online consultation content.

Horopaki / Context

8.       Auckland Council is required to have a local board agreement (as agreed between the Governing Body and the relevant local board) for each local board area for each financial year. The local board agreement will be included in the Council’s Annual Budget 2019/2020.

9.       Local Board agreements set out (among other things) how the council will, in the year to which the agreement relates, reflect the priorities and preferences in the local board’s plan in respect of the local activities to be provided in the local board area.

10.     For the purposes of consulting on each local board agreement to be included in the council’s Annual Budget, the consultation document for the Annual Budget must include content relating to each agreement.

11.     Public consultation on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 will take place from 17 February – 17 March 2019.

12.     In December, the Governing Body will consider whether to consult on a proposal to transfer legal ownership of waterfront land and related assets to the council parent.  If the Governing Body decides to consult on that proposal, the consultation would take place at the same time as the consultation on the Annual Budget 2019/2020.  As a result, the consultation on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 would require the use of the special consultative procedure, as a decision to proceed with the proposal would require an amendment to the council’s long-term plan.  Where an amendment to the long-term plan is being consulted on at the same time as consultation on the Annual Budget, the Local Government Act 2002 requires the council to use the special consultative procedure in relation to both matters.

13.     There will also be concurrent consultation on the Auckland Water Strategy discussion document. A report will be going to the Environment and Community Committee on 4 December 2018 to approve the discussion document for public consultation.

14.     Aucklanders will be able to provide feedback during the consultation process through a variety of channels which include verbal (or face-to-face), written and social media.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

15.     The special consultative procedure requires the council to provide an opportunity for people to present their views to the council in a manner that enables “spoken (or New Zealand sign language) interaction” between the person and the council’s decision-makers, or their official delegates.   The council provides for this through its ‘Have Your Say’ events where people can have a face-to-face dialogue with elected members or other council representatives with an appropriate delegation. The Have Your Say event recommended to be held in the Whau Local Board area is:

·        Annual Budget 2019/2020 Have your Say at the Public Forum section of the Whau Local Board Business Meeting scheduled for 6pm, 27 February 2019 in the Whau Local Board office, 31 Totara Avenue, New Lynn.

16.     Local boards held workshops during October and November 2018 to determine their key activities for their 2019/2020 local board agreement. Boards are now requested to agree their local content and supporting information for consultation, as attached in Attachment A and B.

17.     Any new local BID targeted rates must be consulted on before they can be implemented. Local boards are therefore also requested to agree any new proposals for consultation.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe /
Local impacts and local board views

18.     Local boards will have further opportunities to provide information and views as the council progresses through the Annual Budget 2019/2020 process.

19.     Aucklanders will have the opportunity to give feedback on regional and local proposals contained in the Annual Budget 2019/2020. All feedback received from submitters residing in the local board area will be analysed by staff and made available for consideration by the board, prior to finalising their local board agreement.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori / Māori impact statement

20.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the annual budget are important tools that enable and can demonstrate the council’s responsiveness to Māori. Local board plans, which were adopted in September and October of 2017, form the basis for local priorities.

21.     The approach to Māori engagement for the Annual Budget will be finalised once consultation topics are confirmed, including development of bespoke materials subject to interest level of topics and confirmation of budget.

22.     Regionally supported local Māori engagement in the South and West will be provided subject to interest level of topics and confirmation of budget, this will be integrated with Water Strategy engagement.

23.     Mana Whenua engagement on the Water Strategy is already underway, and will run throughout the March consultation period, annual budget discussions will be integrated with this process.             

24.     There is a need to continue to build relationships between local boards and iwi, and where relevant the wider Māori community. Ongoing conversations will assist local boards and Māori to understand each other’s priorities and issues. This in turn can influence and encourage Māori participation in the council’s decision-making processes.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea / Financial implications

25.     Event associated costs include venue hire and catering.

Ngā raru tūpono / Risks

26.     Local boards must agree their local consultation content and supporting information by 13 December 2018, in order for it to be formatted and reviewed in time to be incorporated into the Annual Budget 2019/2020 consultation document and supporting information.

Ngā koringa ā-muri / Next steps

27.     The Governing Body will approve the consultation document, supporting information and consultation process for the Annual Budget 2019/2020 on 13 February 2019.

28.     Following consultation, the Governing Body and local boards will make decisions on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and Local Board Agreements 2019/2020 respectively.

Proposed Regional Public Transport Plan

 

File No.: CP2018/24097

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To provide the Whau Local Board the opportunity to provide formal feedback on the proposed Regional Public Transport Plan.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Auckland Transport is required to review its ten year Regional Public Transport Plan every three years. The plan describes the services that are integral to Auckland’s public transport network for the next 10-year period. This report requests the Whau Local Board give feedback on the plan, with special emphasis on the following four focus areas:

·   Expanding and enhancing rapid and frequent networks

·   Improving customer access to public transport

·   Improving Māori responsiveness

·   Harnessing emerging technologies

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Whau Local Board:

a)      provide the following feedback on the Regional Public Transport Plan focus areas of:

i)        expanding and enhancing rapid and frequent networks.

ii)       improving customer access to public transport.

iii)      improving Māori responsiveness.

iv)      harnessing emerging technologies.

b)      provide additional feedback on local specific interests.

Horopaki / Context

3.       The Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP) is a requirement of the Land Transport Management Act. It sets out the changes to Auckland’s public transport. Transport is a key component of a city’s success. Auckland is growing and as more people live and visit here, the number of trips taken on our transport networks is increasing. The space available for transport networks is finite. This means that we need as many people as possible to travel using efficient forms of transport; such as walking, cycling and public transport. These alternative transport options take less space and are more environmentally sustainable than private motor vehicles. With less pressure on the road network there is more capacity available for critical vehicles that need the road, including road-based public transport, emergency services and freight.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu / Analysis and advice

4.       Attached is the summary document for the Regional Public Transport Plans. This document outlines the main changes proposed over the next ten years by focusing on four key areas:

Focus area one

Expanding and enhancing rapid and frequent networks

5.       Planning an enhanced rapid transit network through four main city-shaping projects to dramatically increase the speed and coverage of the rapid transit network:

·   City Rail Link

·   City to Mangere Light Rail and Northwest Light Rail

·   SH20B upgrade and Puhinui Interchange

·   Eastern Busway.

6.       Implementing improvements on key arterial routes to move more people. This will include bus priority, safety improvements and cycling and walking facilities. Increasing services on the rapid and frequent networks, with the aim to have services every 10 minutes during peak travel times. Using the rapid and frequent networks to help make great public spaces.

Focus area two

Improving customer access to public transport

7.       Continuing to deliver improved wayfinding sign systems across the public transport network to make it easier for people to find their way across the network. Increasing and improving the walking and cycling and other choices for access to public transport services, focussing on improving safety. Changing park and ride facilities to meet public demand.

Focus area three

Improving Māori responsiveness

8.       Partnering with mana whenua to trial services such as on-demand ride share connecting to marae, which are hard to access by conventional public transport. Ensuring te reo Māori audio announcements and signs for rapid transit stations (train and busway) and extending this across all public transport.

9.       Applying Te Aranga Principles when designing major interchanges and stations, with future potential to apply in the planning and design of the Light Rail Transit projects, Puhinui upgrade and stormwater management. Securing opportunities for Māori and local community employment, training and business development when constructing major public transport projects.

Focus area four

Harnessing emerging technologies

10.     Improving customer insights and data, and undertaking more thorough analytics of travel data to directly inform service improvements.
