Horopaki

Context

3.       Auckland Transport (AT) is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways. We report on a monthly basis to local boards, as set out in our Local Board Engagement Plan. This monthly reporting commitment acknowledges the important engagement role local boards play within the governance of Auckland on behalf of their local communities.

4.       This report updates the Waitematā Local Board on Auckland Transport (AT) projects and operations in the local board area, it updates the local board on their advocacy and consultations and includes information on the status of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund and Community Safety Fund.

5.       The Local Board Transport Capital Fund is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by Auckland Transport. Local boards can use this fund to deliver transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of Auckland Transport’s work programme.

6.       The Community Safety Fund is a capital budget established by Auckland Transport for use by local boards to fund local road safety initiatives. The purpose of this fund is to allow elected members to address long-standing local road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore not being addressed by the Auckland Transport programme.

Analysis and advice

Auckland Transport projects and operations in the local board area

7.       The table below has a general summary of projects and activities of interest to the board with their current status. Please note that all timings are indicative and are subject to change:

Item

Update

Great North Rd (Previously route 4 of Waitematā Safe Routes) - Deliver a high-quality link between Crummer Road and Karangahape Road on Great North Road. That provides a safer route for existing cyclists, encourages more people on bikes while making bus journeys in the peak faster and more reliable.

No update this month. Previous update:

 

The business case and design process will begin soon. These will include the learnings from the previous design process. This process is expected to be completed mid-2020 and will then go through the consultation process.

Parnell cycleway – proposed cycleway through Parnell

No update this month. Previous update:

 

The AT Executive Leadership Team (ELT) are finalising the cycleway programme priority and available budget. This will help determine the future of Parnell cycleway and subsequent funding.  The project team has worked through a multi criteria assessment of concept design options and determined AT’s preferred design option. The design can be presented to the community reference group pending the ELT decision.

Westhaven to CBD Cycleway - The purpose of the project is to deliver a commuter cycling facility linking Westhaven Drive with Quay Street.

The project budget has been approved for delivering the cycleway with some streetscape enhancements. Concept design will start in July 2019.

Public consultation is planned in August 2019. AT will seek feedback on two new design options on Market Place and Customs Street West:

·    base cycleway design with some streetscape enhancement (updated from the scheme design been consulted in 2017)

·    integrated cycleway and streetscape design.

Pt Chevalier to Westmere cycleway - A dedicated cycle route along Pt Chevalier Road and Meola Road ending near the Westmere Shops 

AECOM has been appointed as the consultant for professional services for the detail design phase of the project.

Design and planning is progressing and a public consultation will be carried out later in 2019. Once a design is finalised, the project team will present to the local board.

Wellesley Street Bus Improvement Project (formerly Midtown bus route) – Improving how city centre buses operate

The project team has been asked to do further work on the emerging preferred design for the Wellesley Street bus improvements project.  This will delay the design being brought to the Waitematā Local Board, but this will still occur ahead of public consultation later in the year.

Waitematā Safe Routes project, the two routes open for feedback are Route 1: Surrey Crescent to Garnet Road and Route 2: Richmond Road.

The public feedback report will shortly be made available and published on the project webpage.  The report will provide an overview of the feedback received. 

Regarding remedial works in West Lynn village, AT have met with the Grey Lynn Business Association and business owners to share concept options to address the drainage and pedestrian crossing gradient issues.  They have been given three weeks to provide their feedback.

Regarding general road maintenance work, our contractor finished ahead of the two-week schedule. 

Herne Bay cycling and walking improvements – proposed changes to encourage slower driving speeds and improve routes for people walking and cycling.

The detailed design is progressing well. The team are expecting the results of a Road Safety Audit, following which they will present an update to the local board.

Victoria Street East-West cycleway - dedicated cycle route along Victoria Street West, from the Beaumont Street intersection to the Hobson Street intersection.

The detailed design is progressing. The team presented an update on the design to the local board at workshop on 2 July 2019.

Federal Street Walking and Cycling Improvements

(proposed for Federal Street linking Fanshawe Street to Victoria Street until the full Federal Street Upgrade occurs.)

The report on public feedback into the project has been published on the AT website. As a direct result of feedback, AT will make some enhancements to the Federal Street walking and cycling improvements including:

·    investigating improvements to road space between the Court and Rydges Hotel

·    moving the parking bays down by 1 metre on the eastern side of Federal Street between Victoria Street West – Kingston Street, to improve vehicle accessibility for vehicles exiting the carpark at 65 Federal Street

·    investigating the addition of a disability car parking space

·    improving the ongoing maintenance, repainting the coloured dots, replanting the plants and improving the plant watering regime

·    reflective tape to the planter boxes for improved visibility

Cook Street and Union Street – road safety improvements

The project team is in the process of applying for funding for this project.

Tamaki Drive cycle route (Quay Street to Ngapipi Bridge)

No update this month, previous update:

 

The Tāmaki Drive Cycleway final detailed design was issued and resource consent has been approved by Council.  However, redesign is needed for the Tamaki Drive corridor through reallocating traffic lane widths and the southern side footpath to provide a more balanced and safer cross section, while allowing heavy commercial vehicles to continue to use Tamaki Drive.

The current design lane arrangement on Tamaki Drive provides a 3.2m kerbside lane, 3.3m centre lane and 1.5m southern side footpath, the revised design provides a 2.95m kerbside lane, 3.0m centre lane and a minimum of 1.8m southern side footpath

The cause of this design change has been a result of a recent safety review, departure requests, and direction from the Design Strategy and Standards team.

Grafton Road – clearway

No update this month, previous update:

 

In scheme design phase.

Great North Road Shared Path – shared path, new paired crossings at slip lanes and Western Springs Road, shared path crossing with cycle lights, raised tables and kerb realignments.

Construction is underway. Auckland Motorway Alliance/NZTA have not approved raised priority crossings so design now includes unmarked pram ramps at both SH16 on and off ramp slip lanes.

 

Newmarket and Remuera Residential Parking Zone - proposed permit scheme for residents and businesses.

Parking surveys to determine occupancy levels scheduled for July 2019.

Grey Lynn and Arch Hill parking scheme - proposed permit scheme for residents and businesses.

The Residential Parking Zones were implemented in December 2018. Feedback so far has been positive.  In line with a resolution passed by the local board, AT is re-assessing the parking situation in the remaining streets now the parking patterns have normalised. This is expected to take place in July and August 2019.

Parnell East Residential Parking Zone – project to install a residential parking zone and safety improvements on St Stephens Ave, Lichfield and Crescent Roads.

The local board was briefed on the proposal at workshop on the 2 July 2019.

Public consultation is planned to take place in July 2019.

Wellesley Street & Sale Street – new intersection signals

Auckland Design Office’s (ADO) Tactile Urbanism notification (phase I) was decoupled from AT’s consultation of intersection traffic signals.

ADO is leading on the notification and subsequent community engagement. The intersection traffic signals are still planned for 2019/20 delivery.

Grafton Road – midblock pedestrian signal outside of University of Auckland.

No update this month, previous update:

 

In scheme design phase.

St Georges Bay Road - pedestrian crossing facility.

During our contractor works notification an adjacent building owner strongly objected to aspects of the proposal and impacts on their historic building. These concerns were not raised during public consultation.

The construction work was placed on hold while AT engaged with the building owner and looked to address concerns raised.  As a result, delivery of the project has been moved to 2019/20 financial year. We have also identified an opportunity to coordinate with maintenance renewal work.

Princes Street & Eden Crescent Intersection - upgrade including raised zebra crossings

We are expecting to start construction by late August or early September 2019.

 

Karangahape Road Enhancements Project – streetscape upgrade

Construction will begin in July 2019.

 

The team have been talking to businesses about the Stage One works and likely impacts. There has also been information to inform road users about the upcoming changes to traffic lanes and journeys time during construction.

Parnell Station – Installing ticket gates

The project has had a slight delay. All the canopies have been installed but the balustrade and gate lines will not be installed until mid-July 2019.

Downtown Infrastructure Improvement Programme –

·    Quay Street Strengthening 

·    Quay Street Enhancement

·    Britomart East

·    Lower Albert

·    Downtown Ferry

·    Waterfront Park

·    Mooring dolphin

 

From 30 June 2019 we shifted Quay Street’s traffic lanes (between Commerce Street and Lower Hobson Street) towards the northern (harbour) side of the street. This is necessary to establish the construction site on the southern (city) side of Quay Street. We expect this to have minimal impact on traffic flows once the change beds in. AT will continue to monitor and manage traffic on an on-going basis.

Work continues in preparation for the start of the major Downtown Programme projects including strengthening Quay Street’s seawall, enhancing the streetscape, and redeveloping the ferry basin.

Preparatory works including proof drilling and clearing of utility services along the northern side of Quay Street between Queens Wharf and Marsden Wharf are approaching completion. We expect piling rigs to begin drilling on the Queens to Marsden section of the Seawall in mid-July.

The seawall preparatory works continue on the footpath outside 139 -131 Quay Street and we expect these to be complete the week ending Friday 12 July.

With regards to tree relocation, the trees will be replanted at Teal Park where they can enjoy some peace and quiet until their return to Quay Street as part of a wider vegetation programme as the enhancement programme approaches completion.

Repair of the Pier 2 piles is well underway and will continue through to August. All ferry services will operate as normal throughout works.

The enabling works for the Ferry Basin Redevelopment on the western side of Queens Wharf are now underway. In late June, cranes safely removed heritage bollards and almost 90 existing timber fenders.  Current works include installing 240m of grillage (temporary works for the cranes to sit on) in preparation for the arrival of two cranes. These cranes will be used to install 253 new piles as part of the construction of the new breakwater wall and canopies. Piling is expected to start mid-July and continue for approximately six months.

The Lower Albert Street bus interchange will provide a bespoke high-quality bus station facility on Lower Albert Street to cater for North Shore buses on the western side and Western buses on the eastern side. The Local Board was briefed on this at a workshop on the 2 July 2019.

During construction (both CRL and DTP) alternative bus routing will be undertaken so that staging of works allows either west side or east side of interchange to be operational.

The rest of Albert St stops will operate as they become available following CRL works.

Downtown Infrastructure Improvement Programme –

·    Quay Street Strengthening 

·    Quay Street Enhancement

·    Britomart East

·    Lower Albert

·    Downtown Ferry

·    Waterfront Park

·    Mooring dolphin

 

Consent updates:

·    Resource consents for strengthening the Princes Wharf Ferry Basin and Queens to Marsden sections of the Seawall have been granted.

·    The application for the Ferry Building Seawall strengthening has been lodged – there have been a number questions asked by Council and we now expect a notification date late July.

·    Resource consent for the Quay Street Enhancement has been granted

·    Ferry Basin redevelopment consent has been granted

·    The Mooring Dolphin decision has been appealed through the environment court with a hearing date yet to be set.

·    Consent has been lodged to relocate the War Memorial beacon, currently outside of Burger Boy, to sit between the Historic ferry shelters (on the Northern side between lower Queens Street and Lower Albert Street).  A decision is expected early August.

Wynyard Quarter street and park upgrades – central construction package

Work is expected to start on Gaunt Street in mid to late July. Gaunt Street will be reduced to a single lane with one-way traffic movement from east to west. Detours will be in place to guide traffic and signage will be installed. Customers access to the marine business car parks will remain at all times. VMS signage will be installed to provide advance warning to road users. Bus movements will not be impacted.

A memo will be provided to the local board in advance of the work occurring. The memo will include more detailed information about the detours and traffic movement, and an overview of communications activity being undertaken to keep people informed.

Franklin Road upgrade - upgrades to improve the road quality and future-proof existing services.

Project is complete.

Regional Facilities Auckland Third Quarter Performance Report for the quarter ending 31 March 2019.

 

File No.: CP2019/12282

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To present the Regional Facilities Auckland (RFA) report for the quarter ended 31 March 2019.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Regional Facilities Auckland’s (RFA) purpose is to enrich life in Auckland by engaging people in the arts, environment, sports and events. RFA works in partnership with key stakeholders to present exciting, engaging and accessible experiences to those who live in and visit the city.

3.       The RFA Third Quarter Report presents the overall performance of RFA for the quarter and includes highlights and issues relating to RFA business units – Stadia, Zoo, Art Gallery, Auckland Live and New Zealand Maritime Museum.

4.       Key performance indicators on page 8 of the report show that visitor numbers were slightly below target overall, due to targets not being met at the Art Gallery, Auckland Live and Stadia venues.  Targets were exceeded at Auckland Zoo and New Zealand Maritime Museum.

5.       Highlights noted in the report relating to venues within the Waitematā Local Board area include:

·    building renewal work at Western Springs Stadium, completion November 2019

·    Auckland Zoo’s partnership with Mazda Foundation for its Outreach Conservation Education programme

·    $20 million has been spent on the renewal programme at Auckland Zoo from the $40.3 million budget.  The works are impacting on the visitor experience.

·    $24.3 million of the Aotea Centre development budget of $52 million has been spent

·    work on the precinct master plan for Aotea Centre will be discussed with Council in 2020.

6.       The report indicates that the RFA financial performance to 31 March is tracking to budget.  However direct revenue is unfavourable to budget due to postponement of some events, and the lease of the Viaduct Events Centre to Team NZ.

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      receive the Regional Facilities Auckland 2018/2019 Third Quarter Report.

Waitematā Open Space Network Plan

File No.: CP2019/11206

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To adopt the Waitematā Open Space Network Plan.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Adoption of the open space network plan will assist local board decision-making and provide a framework for the development of open space over the next 10 years.

3.       The purpose of the plan is to set out actions to deliver a sustainable, quality open space network that can respond to, and accommodate, anticipated population growth.

4.       The network will provide the community with access to a range of recreational, social, cultural and environmental experiences.

5.       The open space network plan includes:

·    the current state of the network and its challenges

·    four key moves that provide the framework to deliver a sustainable quality open space network

·    prioritised actions that will deliver the key outcomes.

6.       There is no additional funding to implement projects in the open space network plan beyond renewal of existing assets and planned capital expenditure.

7.       The lack of funding to implement all identified actions could create a reputational risk. The local board can use the plan to advocate for increased funding as part of Annual and Long-term Plan processes, or to help inform prioritisation of its locally driven initiative capital (LDI Capex) budgets.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      adopt the Waitematā Open Space Network Plan (Attachment A)

b)      delegate the approval of any minor document amendments to the Chairperson of the Waitematā Local Board.

 

 

Horopaki

Context

8.       An open space network plan has been prepared for the Waitematā Local Board area.

9.       This plan outlines the local board’s aspirations and priorities for the future development of local parks and open spaces.

10.     The plan responds to growth and increasing diversity anticipated in the Waitematā area, including changes in demographics and patterns of usage.

11.     Auckland Council’s Parks and Open Spaces Strategic Action Plan 2013 (POSSAP) sets out how parks and open spaces contribute to the outcomes of the Auckland Plan. It identifies local board open space network plans as one of the key tools to achieve this.

12.     The plan is strategically aligned to three Auckland Plan focus areas:

Belonging and Participation - Focus area 1

Create safe opportunities for people to meet, connect, participate in and enjoy community and civic life.

Belonging and Participation - Focus area 7                                                            Recognise the value of arts, culture, sport and recreation to quality of life.

Homes and Places - Focus area 5                                                                                 Create urban places for the future.

13.     The final document is presented in three key areas:

14.     The plan was prepared in consultation with the local board, partners and key stakeholders and is informed by Waitematā parks research.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

15.     The plan analyses the current state of the Waitematā open space network and sets out four key moves. They provide the framework for actions covering the future development and management of the open space network over the next 10 years.

Waitematā Open Space Network Plan

16.     The main strengths of the existing open space network include:

·     good provision in most areas and high satisfaction by park users

·     a range of parks offering different experiences, including seven destination parks and eight suburb parks

·     prominent environmental, cultural and heritage features throughout the network

·     good coastal access to beaches and the foreshore for recreation.

17.     The main challenges relating to existing open space include:

·     increased use through population growth with limited capacity to expand the network

·     Waitematā’s parks also functioning as tourist destinations

·     some provision gaps when analysed against the Open Space Provision Policy 2016

·     pest and weed growth potentially affecting the quality of parks.

 

18.     Four key moves respond to the issues and opportunities identified through the current state analysis and help formulate actions to develop Waitematā’s open space network:

·     respond to the growth of our increasingly diverse communities

·     activate and enhance our parks and open spaces

·     improve biodiversity and ecological outcomes

·     enhance walking, cycling and green corridors to connect our communities.

19.     These are linked to the key focus areas of Treasure, Enjoy, Connect and Utilise identified in POSSAP and look at how best to prioritise funding through the Long-term and Annual planning processes.

20.     The goal is to provide a sustainable and high-quality parks and open space network.

Prioritisation, decision-making and actions

21.     The plan prioritises actions to improve the open space network.

22.     Several principles provide direction for planning and implementing park development. The following list of principles assist in prioritising the actions:

·     amount and timing of growth

·     proximity of Waitematā Local Board area to growth/spatial priority areas

·     sequencing of proposed actions

·     current provision – quality and quantity

·     alternative options for similar benefits

·     existing capital works programmes and contractual commitments

·     planning and funding cycles

·     project planning timeframes

·     other influences such as land availability, large infrastructure projects, adjacent local board projects, environmental services and storm-water management.

23.     Focus areas and actions have been prioritised according to the principles.

24.     The following actions are recommended based on the analysis of the current state, input from mana whenua and the framework of key moves:

Key Move 1 – respond to the growth of our increasingly diverse communities

 


 

Key Move 2 – activate and enhance our open spaces

 

Key Move 3 – improve biodiversity and ecological outcomes

 

Key Move 4 – enhance walking, cycling and green corridors to connect our communities

 

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

25.     The plan has been developed in consultation with relevant council departments. Their views are reflected in this plan.

26.     Customer and community services, Auckland Transport and Infrastructure and Environmental Services will implement the network plan.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

27.     Local communities will benefit from the actions in this plan. These include increased sport and recreation opportunities, leading to improved health and wellbeing.

28.     Staff engaged the local board through a series of workshops. These meetings took place on:

·  4 September 2018

·   6 November 2018

·  20 November 2018

·    26 March 2019.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

29.     Māori identity and well-being is an important outcome in the Auckland Plan. The implementation of this network plan responds to and supports the following focus areas:

Māori identity and well-being - Focus Area 1

Meet the needs and support the aspirations of tamariki and their whanau.

Māori identity and well-being - Focus area 7

Reflect mana whenua mātauranga and Māori design principles throughout Auckland.

30.     Quality parks and open spaces help to facilitate Māori participation in sport and recreation.

31.     Staff engaged with mana whenua on 20 September 2018, 26 September 2018 and two meetings on 27 February 2019 to seek their views in relation to the open space network in Waitematā.

32.     The key issues raised by iwi have informed the development of the key moves and actions outlined in the plan.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

33.     Development of the open space network plan is funded by Community and Social Policy.

34.     No funding has been allocated for public consultation, as the open space network plan informs local board decision-making. There is no statutory requirement to involve the public.

35.     No additional budget is provided for the implementation of the open space network plan.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

36.     The lack of funding to implement the plan could create a reputational risk. However, the local board can use the network plan to advocate for increased funding as part of the Annual Plan and Long-term Plan processes.


 

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

37.     The plan will be implemented over the next 10 years as budgets allow.

38.     It is anticipated that the delivery of specific projects will draw on a wide range of potential partners who can contribute advice, assistance, funding and support.

Context

7.       The 2019/2020 work programme line 324 has a budget of $40,000 for contestable allocation of the Local Events Development Fund.

8.       The applications are assessed on their alignment to the Waitematā Local Board Local Grants Programme (Attachment A).

9.       The fund opened for applications on 29 April 2019 and closed on 7 June 2019. Nine applications were received, requesting a total of $180,044.09 (Attachment B).

10.     The applications were discussed with the local board at a workshop on 11 June 2019.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

11.     The Waitematā Local Board Local Grants Programme identifies the following priorities:

·       Inclusive communities that are vibrant, healthy and connected

·       Attractive and versatile public places that meet our communities’ needs

·       The natural environment is valued, protected and enhanced

·       A high-quality, built environment that embraces our heritage

·       An accessible, connected and safe transport network with well-designed streets

·       An innovative, productive and resilient local economy.

12.     Three applications were assessed as having high alignment to the priorities of the local board grants programme and are recommended for funding.

13.     Table 1 shows the applications that staff recommend for approving for funding:

Total

$73,813.09

$21,813.69

 

14.     The recommended funding amounts include consideration of other funding sources that the applicants also receive from council.

15.     The Franklin Road Lights event receives $7,000 in non-contestable funding from a separate line item in the local board’s work programme (line item 320). Therefore, this recommended contestable funding of $1,813.69 makes up the difference for the total amount required to deliver the event.

16.     The Farmers Santa Parade and Auckland International Buskers Festivals have previously received additional funding from alternative council funding sources. There is potential for additional funding to be received from council for the 2019 events. The local board provides a funding contribution towards the events as they are located within the local board area and are seen to be key events across the summer events calendar to draw people to Waitematā.

17.     Six of the applications received were assessed to have low alignment to the priorities of the local board grants programme and are recommended to be declined for funding.

18.     Table 2 shows the applications that staff recommend for declining for funding due to a better alignment with the local board’s Community Grants programme:

Myers Park stage two - Mayoral Drive underpass

File No.: CP2019/11974

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To endorse the preferred concept design for stage two of the Myers Park project – Mayoral Drive underpass to progress to the developed design phase.

2.       To support in principle the proposal to allocate $1.85 million additional funding from the city centre targeted rate to the Myers Park stage two project.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

3.       The Myers Park project to upgrade the park in line with the Myers Park Development Plan commenced in 2012. Stage one of the project, including a new play area and upgraded lighting and footpaths, was completed in 2015 ahead of the park centennial celebration.

4.       Stage two of the Myers Park project – Mayoral Drive underpass, has experienced significant changes in scope and increases in estimated costs. A project review was carried out in November 2017 and changes in scope and budget were endorsed by the Waitematā Local Board in March 2018 (resolution WTM/2018/27).

5.       In mid to late 2018, investigations into the underground storage tank stormwater detention option flagged significant risk and cost. Staff subsequently carried out an options analysis to assess three stormwater detention options in terms of cost, risk and project objectives. These options, listed below, all retain the latest public art concept as well as the earlier design for the Queen Street/Mayoral Drive stairs:

·        Option A – retain the existing bund wall with the inclusion of new stairs and ramps over the wall

·        Option B – construct a new 1,100 cubic metre stormwater detention tank in the park, replacing the current storage capacity provided by the existing bund wall

·        Option C – demolish the existing bund wall and replace it with a mechanical flood gate, which would be stored below ground and raised in the event of a flood.

6.       Option A, maintaining above ground storage of stormwater, has been identified as the preferred option. Of the three stormwater detention options, this concept has been assessed to be the lowest cost option which can meet the project objectives.

7.       All options were presented to Waitematā Local Board at its workshop on 7 May 2019 and to the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board at its workshop on 22 May 2019. Both boards expressed support in principle for the project and the preferred option.

8.       Staff will report on Myers Park stage two to the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board at its business meeting on 24 July 2019 to confirm the preferred option and next steps.

9.       The increased project budget is already included in the draft Auckland City Centre Targeted Rate Portfolio Budget 2019/2020, and was workshopped for the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board’s support on 26 June 2019. The Auckland City Centre Advisory Board will be providing feedback on the portfolio budget and, once finalised, this will be submitted to the Finance and Performance Committee.

10.     This report seeks the local board’s formal endorsement of the preferred option.


 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendations

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      endorse Option A, the preferred concept design for stage two of the Myers Park project – Mayoral Drive underpass, which maintains above ground storage of stormwater, to progress to the developed design phase

b)      support in principle the proposal to allocate $1.85 million additional funding from the city centre targeted rate to the Myers Park stage two project.

 

Horopaki

Context

11.     The Myers Park project to upgrade the park was initiated in late 2012 when the Waitematā Local Board approved the Myers Park Development Plan (resolution WTM/2012/240).

12.     The Myers Park Development Plan is being implemented in stages. Stage one, including a new play area and upgraded lighting and footpaths, was completed in early 2015 in time for the Myers Park centennial celebration.

13.     The draft concept designs for stage two of the Myers Park project – Mayoral Drive underpass were approved by the local board in 2015 (resolution WTM/2015/113).

14.     A project review of Myers Park stage two was completed in November 2017 in response to cost escalation, historic scope changes and technical complexities associated with the project.

15.     The outcome of the project review and recommendations were workshopped with the Waitematā Local Board on 28 November 2017. The review findings indicated that the preferred design at the time posed significant construction and health and safety risks. Therefore, scope and design changes were proposed.

16.     The November 2017 review concluded that the preferred option for stormwater detention was an underground storage tank within Myers Park. At this time a high-level cost estimate was prepared for this option which totalled $7.9 million for the project. In March 2018, the Waitematā Local Board endorsed that additional funding of $2.3 million from the city centre targeted rate be allocated to the Myers Park stage two project (resolution WTM/2018/27).

17.     A revised scope of works was also endorsed by the Waitematā Local Board in March 2018 for stage two and currently comprises:

·        the upgrade of the Mayoral Drive/Queen Street entrance

·        the upgrade of the Mayoral Drive underpass including changes to the current stormwater detention

·        artwork to the underside of the Mayoral Drive bridge and associated lighting and audio effects.

18.     In mid to late 2018, staff engaged consultants to investigate the underground storage tank option further. The findings showed a significant risk and cost due to the extensive excavation required. The required excavation also presented new resource consenting issues including the impact on the park heritage values and trees.

19.     In late 2018, a further stormwater detention option, to retain the existing bund wall and construct new stairs and ramps over the wall, was considered.

20.     An options analysis has been carried out to assess the pros and cons of the underground storage tank option (Option B) against the retained bund wall option (Option A).


 

          For completeness, a mechanical flood gate option which had been considered previously (Option C) was also included in this analysis, as detailed below.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

21.     Recent analysis of the stormwater detention has focused on three options, comprising:

·        Option A – retain the existing bund wall with the inclusion of new stairs and ramps over the wall

·        Option B – construct a new 1,100 cubic metre stormwater detention tank in the park, replacing the current storage capacity provided by the existing bund wall

·        Option C – demolish the existing bund wall and replace it with a mechanical flood gate

22.     Options were assessed in terms of cost, risk and project objectives, and are discussed in further detail below.

Cost estimate

23.     High-level cost estimates, which include allowances for the public art scheme and the earlier designed Queen Street/Mayoral Drive stairs, have been prepared for each option as shown below.

Table 1. Cost estimates for concept design options

 

Option A

Option B

Excluding additional risk allowance

Option B

Including additional risk allowance

Option C

Total estimate including operational expenditure

$8.2 million

$11.7 million

$14.2 million

$9.6 million

24.     The Option B additional risk allowance includes provision for:

·        additional costs for heritage related risks including consideration of new resource consent, consultation and assessment and impact reporting, increased construction monitoring, and the costs of any potential delays to programme

·        tank construction and methodology risks including consideration of extended programme, safety considerations, increased carpark remuneration recovery, and seasonal site issues.

25.     High-level cost estimates show that Option A, retaining the existing bund wall, is the lowest cost option.

Project objectives

26.     The options were assessed against the following project objectives:

Table 2. Myers Park stage two project objectives

Placemaking and safety

Develop and enhance place-making characteristics and amenity value of this significant inner-city park for local communities and visitors. Improve the profile and public perception of the park and help to establish it as a safe place to be, a peaceful, high quality retreat, an external room to frame art and culture, and an accessible place.

Access and connectivity

Improve accessibility and connectivity of the park. Provide an iconic front door for Myers Park that will ultimately link to Aotea Square. Create a covered space that maintains required access and provides part of a safe, intuitive and attractive walkway between Myers Park and Aotea Square.

Public art

Utilise public art to improve activation, perception, reputation and quality of the park. Develop a prominent, vibrant, dynamic and interactive mana whenua public artwork that uniquely expresses cultural narratives, telling the story of the Waihorotiu stream and Horotiu taniwha. Use public art to reveal the Waihorotiu Stream, not literally, but via a narrative in remembrance, creating an engaging, high-quality, permanent and integrated artwork of lasting value for pedestrian commuters, new visitors and regular users of Myers Park.

Stormwater

Maintain existing stormwater retention capacity in any scheme that replaces the existing dam wall. Healthy Waters staff have advised that there is no need to increase the capacity.

27.     Artist impressions have been prepared by designers, Warren and Mahoney. These images have been used to assist with assessing how each option meets the objectives and identifying key challenges and trade-offs (see Attachment A). The above ground finish for Option B (stormwater detention tank in the park) and Option C (mechanical flood gate) is assumed to be similar and these have been assessed together based on the Option B visuals.

28.     The assessment against project objectives is provided in Attachment B. The assessment shows that all options present some challenges and trade-offs. The challenges identified for Option A (retaining existing bund wall) can be worked through further in the developed design phase to improve the project outcomes. Challenges identified for Options B (stormwater detention tank in the park) and Option C (mechanical flood gate) are related to existing levels in the park and would require significant additional physical works in the park to resolve.

Preferred option

29.     It is recommended that Option A, maintaining above ground storage of stormwater, is progressed to the next design phase as this concept has been assessed to be the lowest cost option which can meet the project objectives while also presenting lower risk than the in-ground storage option.

30.     All options were presented to Waitematā Local Board at its workshop on 7 May 2019 and to the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board at its workshop on 22 May 2019. Both boards expressed support in principle for the project and the preferred option.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

31.     A project steering group has been established to provide project oversight and guidance. The group comprises representatives from council’s Development Programme Office, Public Art, Community Facilities, Healthy Waters and Park Services.

32.     The project will impact on the existing Greys Avenue car park that is operated by Auckland Transport. It is estimated that 19 parking spaces will be removed permanently, and an additional 28 parking spaces will be removed temporarily during construction. Auckland Transport previously consented to these works in April 2017.


 

33.     The project team will work with Auckland Transport during design development to communicate timing and minimise the impact to car park users.  Staff are also in discussions with Panuku regarding the scope and timing of the wider redevelopment of Greys Avenue car park, in order to minimise the impact of any further parking changes.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

34.     Myers Park falls within the Waitematā Local Board boundaries and the local board has the delegated authority to approve the use and activities undertaken within local parks in the area.

35.     Staff presented the preferred option to Waitematā Local Board at its workshop on 7 May 2019. The local board expressed support for the project and support in principle for the recommended option, acknowledging that it has the lowest variance from the approved budget. A concern was noted around lines of sight into the park, and this will be considered further during the design development.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

36.     The public art concept developed by Graham Tipene and Barrington Gohns - Whakarongo Environment as an integrated mana whenua design in the Myers Park underpass, is the same for the three options considered. Graham Tipene was previously endorsed by the council’s Infrastructure and Environmental Services mana whenua forum to develop a creative response for this site that celebrated and evoked Horotiu – the protective guardian of the Waihorotiu stream headwaters and valley.

37.     An update will be provided to the Infrastructure and Environmental Services mana whenua forum in July 2019 and mana whenua representatives will be invited to form a project working group. The purpose of the project working group will be to enable further consultation with mana whenua during the next design phase and feedback will be incorporated in the developed design. This will build on consultation previously undertaken for the public art concept.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

38.     The current approved project budget is $6.35 million ($5.7 million from city centre targeted rate and $650,000 from regional public art capital budgets). The Waitematā Local Board previously endorsed that additional funding of $2.3 million from the city centre targeted rate be allocated to the Myers Park Stage Two project (resolution WTM/2018/27).

39.     The high-level cost estimate for the preferred option shows a $1.85 million variance from the approved budget. It is recommended that the Waitematā Local Board support in principle the proposal to allocate $1.85 million additional funding from the city centre targeted rate to the Myers Park stage two project to progress to the next phase of design for the preferred option.

40.     The increased project budget is already included in the draft Auckland City Centre Targeted Rate Portfolio Budget 2019/2020, and was workshopped for the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board’s support on 26 June 2019. The board will be providing feedback on the portfolio budget and, once finalised, this will be submitted to the Finance and Performance Committee.

41.     Staff from the Development Programme Office are in discussion with Community Facilities regarding a financial contribution towards the delivery of the new Mayoral Drive/Queen Street stairs. The stairs are currently listed in the Community Facilities forward work programme for Waitematā Local Board. An Asset Assessment Report (2018) recorded the condition of the existing timber staircase, constructed in 1983, as poor condition and non-compliant to the current building code.

Risks and mitigations

42.     The design risks below have been identified by the project steering group and the project team as requiring further consideration and mitigation during the next design phase.

Table 3. Residual design risks

Risk

Action

The design does not effectively mitigate safety issues such as anti-social behaviour.

It is acknowledged that the underpass space needs to try to discourage anti-social behaviour through considered design. Safety in Design principles will be incorporated in the next design phase.

The design is not perceived to improve accessibility.

Further consultation with accessibility specialists will be undertaken during the next design phase and feedback will be incorporated in the developed design.

The design is not accepted by mana whenua.

Further consultation with mana whenua will be undertaken during the next design phase and feedback will be incorporated in the developed design. This will build on consultation previously undertaken for the public art concept.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

43.     Staff will report on Myers Park stage two to the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board at its business meeting on 24 July 2019 to confirm the preferred option and next steps.

44.     The increased project budget is already included in the draft Auckland City Centre Targeted Rate Portfolio Budget 2019/2020 which was workshopped with the Auckland City Centre Advisory Board on 26 June 2019. Once finalised, the portfolio budget will be reported to the Finance and Performance Committee at its August 2019 business meeting.

45.     Development Programme Office staff will continue to investigate funding opportunities with Community Facilities for the renewal element of the Mayoral Drive/Queen Street stairs.

46.     Further updates will be provided to the Waitematā Local Board during the design phase, which will take place in late 2019.

Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery

File No.: CP2019/12256

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek local board feedback on the draft Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The draft Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery has been developed to ensure Auckland is better prepared to recover from a disaster.

3.       The planning framework set out in the document:

·        identifies community values and priorities

·        sets a vision for recovery

·        focuses on the consequences to be addressed in recovery

·        focuses on building capacity and capability and addressing barriers

·        identifies actions to build momentum.

4.       It has been developed with local board engagement over 2018 and local board feedback is now sought, particularly on:

·        community values

·        community priorities

·        the vision

·        the way we will work in recovery

·        the work to be done to be better prepared for recovery

 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

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

 

 

Horopaki

Context

5.       Following the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002 was amended, and new guidelines were issued requiring better preparation for, and implementation of, recovery from a disaster.

6.       Auckland Emergency Management began development of the Resilient Recovery Strategy to ensure Auckland is better prepared. This included:

·        workshops on recovery with local boards between 24 May and 12 July 2018

·        reporting back on the workshops in September 2018

·        presentations to Local Board Cluster Meetings in March and November 2018

·        updating local boards on the development of the Resilient Recovery Strategy in November 2018 and advising that a draft would go the Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Committee in February 2019.

7.       At the beginning of this year the Resilient Recovery Strategy was renamed ‘Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework to Recovery’ (refer Attachment A) as it better described the document’s intent and contents.

8.       The Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Committee approved the draft Pathways document for targeted engagement in February 2019.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

9.       The development of Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery followed the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management’s ‘Strategic Planning for Recovery’ guidelines [DGL 20/17].

10.     The Pathways document is structured around this process as illustrated in the components of Figure 1 in the Pathways document (page 3):

i)        Identifying community values and priorities

          The planning framework set out in the Pathways document is described as community centric. Community values and priorities guide us in our preparations enabling recovery to be set up and implemented in a way that helps to meet community needs and aspirations.

          An initial set of community values and priorities was derived from workshops with local boards and advisory panels. They will be refined through community engagement as a part of actions to build a better understanding of recovery.

ii)       Setting the recovery vision

          The Pathways document sets the vision whereby “Auckland’s people, communities, businesses and infrastructure are well-placed to recover from a disaster.”

          Being well placed means being well-prepared.

iii)      Anticipation of consequences and opportunities of Auckland hazards and risks

          Anticipating potential consequences and opportunities from the impacts of Auckland’s hazards and risks provides insight into what might be required of a recovery. Auckland’s hazards and risks are identified in our Group Plan and some are the focus of the Natural Hazards Risk Management Action Plan. Building on previous work is part of the work programme resulting from the planning framework under the Pathways document.

iv)      Building capacity and capability, addressing barriers to recovery

          Another way in which the planning framework is community centric is in the way we will work in a recovery. Taking a collaborative, partnership approach means structuring and implementing recovery in a way that maintains its focus on community outcomes.

          A significant recovery will require ‘big government’ structures and processes to effectively mobilise resources and coordinate large scale effort. Such approaches can seem remote from local communities. Effort is required to ensure good communication and community engagement are effectively maintained.

v)      Identifying actions to build momentum

          Another significant focus is the work we need to do to be better prepared. There are 43 actions identified under 5 focus areas: Recovery is communicated, Recovery is understood, Capacity and Capability is available, Collaboration is supported, and progress is monitored and evaluated.

          The actions will form a work programme to be implemented in the lead up to the review of the Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Plan which is due by October 2021 unless delayed by events.          

11.     Against this background comments and views on the Pathways to Preparation: A Planning Framework for Recovery strategy is particularly required on:

·        community values

·        community priorities

·        the vision

·        the way we will work in recovery

·        the work to be done to be better prepared for recovery.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

12.     Many parts of the Auckland Council group potentially become involved in responding to a disaster and subsequent recovery. The planning framework in the Pathway’s document seeks to provide clarity about what will be required to support effective collaboration across the Council group in recovery.

13.     Views from across the Council group are being sought during targeted engagement through June and July 2019.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

14.     Auckland’s hazards and risks may give rise to events with local, sub-regional or region-wide impacts. Their consequences will be influenced by the circumstances of the time and place in which the event took place.

15.     Local board views on their community’s values and priorities are important in determining the way we will work together collaboratively in recovering from a disaster.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

16.     Recovery addresses the consequences of an emergency and their impacts across the natural, social, built and economic environments. The goals, objectives and execution of recovery holds implications for iwi, environmental guardianship, Māori communities (iwi, hapu and mataawaka), marae, assets and the Māori economy.

17.     Building relationships amongst Auckland’s Māori communities to develop a deeper understanding of our potential collaboration across reduction, readiness, response, resilience and recovery is a goal of Auckland Emergency Management. It is also part of the workplan arising from the planning framework set out in the Pathways document.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

18.     There are no financial implications arising out of this report.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

19.     Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery and the work programme it will establish are intended to address the risk of Auckland being unprepared to recover from a disaster.

20.     Recovering from a disaster is complex, lengthy and costly. An absence or lack of preparation can:

·        delay commencement of recovery efforts and lengthen the time taken to complete recovery

·        inhibit multiagency collaboration

·        lead to increased costs, disruption and distress for affected communities and individuals.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

21.     Local board feedback will be collated and considered for reporting to the Civil Defence Emergency Management Committee and incorporation into the final iteration of the Pathways document.

22.     The Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Committee will receive the final iteration of Pathways to Preparedness: A Planning Framework for Recovery for approval in August 2019.

2.         All Waitematā Local Board members

Subject:

3.         Auckland Council Policy on Dogs and Dog Management Bylaw.

From:

4.         Waitematā Local Board

 

Purpose

1.       To provide Waitematā Local Board’s feedback on Auckland Council Policy on Dogs and Dog Management Bylaw.

Summary

·    The Waitematā Local Board support local boards retaining decision making on local dog access rules

·    The board support the local variations option aimed at allowing local boards to make variations to the regional time and season definition

·    The board note that the proposed time and season definition, Saturday of Labour Weekend to 31 March, from 10 am to 7pm, aligns with the current status quo for the Waitematā Local Board area

·    The board is generally supportive of the changes proposed for multiple dog ownership, menacing dogs, clarification of the enforcement requirement to neuter uncontrolled dogs and extension to protect flora

·    The board support the regional default rule to be dogs under control on leash

·    The board support distinct rural and urban rules if there remains good reason to take a different approach to deal with specific rural issues

·    The board request that signage is clear and comprehensive, a greater focus on enforcement of the Dog Management Bylaw and an improved ability for the council to respond

·    A total of 302 submissions were received through public consultation for the local board area

·    A majority of submissions supported the proposals 1 and 2, aimed at communicating dog access rules better. A majority of submitters also supported proposals 3 (multiple dog ownership), 5 (protection of flora) and 7 (menacing dogs)

·    In relation to the time and season definition, a majority of respondents said they preferred the local variations option (156 responses) versus a standardised regional definition (120 responses)

 

Context/Background

2.       At the 3 July 2018 workshop, staff from council’s policy and bylaws team discussed the Dog Management Bylaw and Policy review with staff, where the following matters were discussed:

·    multiple Dog Ownership Licence: requiring owners to obtain a licence for more than one or more than two dogs.

·    time and season rule: proposing a new time and season definition to: Saturday of Labour Weekend to 31 March, from 10am to 7pm.

·    regional default rule: proposing a regional default rule of under control on leash, in parks and reserves not listed in the schedule of access rules.

3.       At the November 2018 Regulatory Committee meeting it was resolved that while the current Auckland Council Policy 2012 and Dog Management Bylaw 2012 are effective in managing dogs; some improvements can be made to address exisiting and emerging problems.

4.       Auckland Council reviewied its policy on dogs and related bylaw, and the statement of proposal for public consultation was adopted at the Governing Body meeting on 28 February 2019.

5.       Public consultation on these changes took place from 1 April – 10 May 2019, with a hearing scheduled for 21 June 2019.

6.       On the 16 April 2019, the local board resolved to delegate to the chair and Parks Portfolio leads to finalise the local board views once the public submissions have been received on the Auckland Council Policy and Dog Management Bylaw Statement of Proposal and attend the hearing panel on 21 June 2019 (resolution number WTM/2019/61).

 

Public feedback for the Waitematā Local Board area

A total of 302 submissions were received for the Waitematā Local Board area. Of those 302, 185 were dog owners and 73 were not, with 44 not responding to this question. A majority of submissions supported the proposals 1 and 2, aimed at communicating dog access rules better. A majority of submitters also supported proposals 3 (multiple dog ownership), 5 (protection of flora) and 7 (menacing dogs).

In relation to the time and season definition, a majority of respondents said they preferred the local variations option (156 responses) versus a standardised regional definition (120 responses).

 

Waitematā Local Board Feedback

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)   note the local board has decision making on

i.          where a time and season rule applies (location)

ii.          the type of dog access (i.e prohibited, on-leash, off-leash or designated dog exercise area)

iii.         what the winter time access rule will be.

b)   support the local variations option aimed at allowing local boards to make variations to the regional time and season definition

c)   note that the proposed time and season definition, Saturday of Labour Weekend to 31 March, from 10 am to 7pm, aligns with the current status quo for the Waitematā Local Board area

d)   support the regional default rule to be dogs under control on leash.

e)   support establishing a regionally consistent approach for dog owners to obtain a Multiple Dog Ownership License.

f)    support distinct rural and urban rules if there remains good reason to take a different approach to deal with specific rural issues.

g)   support promoting responsible dog ownership amongst owners of dogs classified as ‘menacing’ on the basis of their behaviour and encouraging owners to undertake steps towards responsible dog ownership to be eligible to have the classification of their dog(s) reviewed.

h)   support clarifying the enforcement requirement to neuter uncontrolled dogs.

i)    support extending environmental protection to include flora.

j)    request that signage is clear and comprehensive (e.g. include dog access information on directional signage).

k)   request greater focus on enforcement of Dog Management Bylaw and an improved ability for the council to respond.

Waitematā Local Board formal feedback on Statement of Proposal for changes to the Trade Waste Bylaw 2013

File No.: CP2019/12756

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive the Waitematā Local Board formal feedback on the Statement of Proposal for changes to the Trade Waste Bylaw 2013.

 

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Local Government Act 2002 requires council to review its bylaws to determine whether they are effective, efficient and still needed.

3.       The Trade Waste Bylaw 2013 aims to minimise the risk to people, wastewater assets and the environment from potentially harmful substances discharged from trade premises.

4.       Auckland Council reviewed the Bylaw and reported its findings in June 2018.

5.       Key findings from the Bylaw review included:

·    trade waste discharges continue to pose a risk to the public wastewater system, people and the environment

·    the Bylaw has been efficient and effective in managing risk

·    risks are managed by the classification of trade waste, maximum discharge standards, agreements and management plans

·    stakeholders consider the Bylaw as the most appropriate way to protect the public wastewater system, people and the environment, and identified improvements that could be made.

6.       Following the review of the Bylaw, the Governing Body on 28 March 2019 proposed amendments to the Bylaw for public consultation.

7.       The proposed amendments were open for public feedback from 10 April - 10 June 2019.

8.       A total of three submissions were received for the Waitematā local board area, and were generally supportive of the amendments to the Trade Waste Bylaw 2013 but sought clarification that no new significant requirements will be imposed on businesses covered in the Bylaw. 

9.       At the Waitematā Local Board business meeting held on 21 May 2019, the local board endorsed high-level feedback on the Statement of Proposal and delegated to the Environment and Infrastructure Portfolio lead and Co-portfolio holder to submit any further local board views on the recommended changes to the Trade Waste Bylaw 2013.

10.     A copy of the final formal feedback submitted to the Hearing Panel is set out in Attachment A of the agenda report.
