Allocation of the Franklin Local Board's Transport Community Safety Fund

 

Kenneth Tuai, Elected Member Relationship Manager AT, was in attendance to speak to this item.

 

 

Resolution number FR/2019/103

MOVED by Member A Hopkins, seconded by Deputy Chairperson A Baker:  

That the Franklin Local Board:

a)      approve, with support from the Franklin Ward Councillor, the delivery of the Priority 1 projects listed in Attachment A, to be funded from the Franklin Local Board allocation of the Transport Community Safety Fund.

b)      note that the Station Road parking and pedestrian safety improvements project has $181,104 allocated to it from the Franklin Local Board’s Local Transport Capital Fund and therefore allocation from the Transport Community Safety fund for this project is likely to reduce from $500,000 to $320,000; leaving $125,687 Transport Community Funding unallocated.

c)      request that AT reassess Priority 2 projects according to local board feedback and return to the board with advice on which additional projects could be funded from any remaining Transport Community Safety funding and Local Transport Capital funding.

d)      request clarification from AT on the criteria and process for allocating regional funding toward significant rural road safety projects, noting that there are a number of on-going and significant safety projects for rural areas identified that do not meet the Transport Community Safety fund criteria.

e)      request that Transport Community Safety Fund project delivery progress updates and budget allocation balances are reported in the AT monthly report.

f)       note the board requests that, on the Whitford-Maraetai-Henson Road bend, AT consider signage to alert drivers to the dangerous/high risk bend, and to slow down, as an interim measure.

Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery

 

Resolution number FR/2019/106

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson A Baker, seconded by Member M Kay:   

That the Franklin Local Board:

a)       provide the following feedback on the draft Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery:

 

                         i.          endorse a community-centric planning framework

 

                       ii.          suggest that staff developing the resilience and recovery action plan work with community empowerment staff in accessing and understanding local community values and priorities.

 

                      iii.          request that staff report the outcome of engagement in the Franklin Local Board area and how community feedback will be reflected in the recovery work programme

 

                      iv.          suggest that regular and ongoing communication at the local level, with rural, farming, coastal and other isolated communities, using local communication channels and delivery of locally relevant messages, is critical to both preparing for and recovering from a disaster

                       v.          suggest that the ‘response’ to a disaster is not sufficiently community-centric and that response and recovery cannot be managed in isolation.

b)        request that community engagement on community values and priorities actively encourages participation from rural, farming, coastal and other isolated communities, noting that these communities have specific recovery needs that may not otherwise be identified.

c)         request that staff report the outcome of engagement in the Franklin Local Board  area and how community feedback will be reflected in the recovery work programme

d)        request a report on the current status of council plans and effectiveness in the areas of emergency management reduction, readiness and response, with particular focus on what is being done to make and support communities to be ready and to respond.
