MOVED by Chairperson H Doig, seconded by Deputy Chair J Fairey:  

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

MOVED by Chairperson H Doig, seconded by Member S Kaushal:  

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

16

Future development of Liston Village, Hillsborough

 

William Brydon Principal Policy Analyst Community & Social Policy Parks and Recreation Policy was in attendance to speak to the report.

 

A map of the Future Development of Liston Village was tabled.  A copy has been placed in the official minutes and is available on the Auckland Council website as a minutes attachment.

 

Resolution number PKTPP/2019/159

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Fairey, seconded by Member A-M Coury:  

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      note the purpose of the report, as determined by Governing Body in response to the Local Board’s One Local Initiative proposal, “to assess and report back on whether the whole of Liston Village is still required for open space purposes”, and the limitations of scope that this required, in particular that the report does not consider the value that social housing on the site might add in contrast to open space purposes.

b)      note that despite the limited scope of the report, to focus on open space value and exclude social housing value, it does not categorically recommend Option 1 (the total open space option).

c)       reconfirm its commitment to the long-term provision of seniors social housing on the current Liston Village site, with at least 25 units, as the goal of our One Local Initiative in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan process.

d)      reiterates it is flexible regarding how that goal is achieved, and to that end supports Option 2 and Option 3 as proposed in the report.

e)      confirm it is open to further discussion of options that provide at least 25 units of seniors social housing in the long term, and enhance the Hillsborough Rd entrance to the park.

f)        note that we have not yet received relevant documentation regarding the original decision to acquire the Liston Village site under Auckland City Council, and request that this be provided to the local board as soon as practicable.

g)      note the following further feedback in relation to the report presented to us, which we hope will be addressed in the report presented to the Mayor and Councillors for their decision-making on next steps:

i)     the report should mention Auckland Council’s commitment to being an Age-Friendly City, and the importance of seniors housing measures in that UN-endorsed programme.

ii)    the Puketapapa Open Space Network Plan, adopted by the Local Board in February 2019, did not identify a shortfall of open space in the Hillsborough East area, where Monte Cecilia Park is located, and identified that the open space priority in relation to Monte Cecilia Park was “development of a significant playground”, not additional open space.

iii)   the 2015 Liston Village Housing for the Elderly report identified Hillsborough as “highest demand area for social housing in Auckland.”

iv)   the reputational risk of Auckland Council demolishing seniors social housing to provide open space during a housing crisis and in an area identified as having a social housing shortfall but not an open space shortfall is not reflected in the report, nor is the significant community support for retaining Liston Village.

v)    over the last nine years Monte Cecilia Park has had 36,600m2 of open space added to it already through purchases of Monte Cecilia School, the Moore property on Mt Albert Rd, residential housing areas on Hillsborough Rd and Korma Rd, and a map should be included with the report that shows this clearly.

vi)   in regard to costs, those listed in the report are based on the 2018 LTP process and are likely to change significantly through the business case process.  We hope it would also be point the opportunity to redevelop the site using the Haumaru approach currently being used for a 40 unit development underway in Henderson.

vii) the lack of Council provided seniors social housing on the Auckland isthmus, in contrast with the 62 villages (with one further development) offered throughout the rest of the Auckland region.

viii) past concerns regarding sightlines to Pah Homestead from Hillsborough Rd are addressed by both Option 2 and Option 3.

ix)    option 4 is not well-developed in particular lacking any explanation of the temporary nature of any housing at the Korma Rd site, or the reputational risk to Council from re-building housing on a site that it demolished housing on in 2016.

x)    the need to ascertain a more up to date view from the Catholic Diocese as to how they might view a repurposing of some or all of the Liston Village land, in regard to assessment of the legal risk

xi)   the current Monte Cecilia Park Concept Plan, adopted in 2015 and explicitly superseding all previous plans for the park, is deliberately silent on the future of the Liston Village site and does not include it within the boundaries of the park.  It allows for the development of the park within the current footprint and does not anticipate the need to add further open space to achieve the outcomes identified in the concept plan.

xii) the report should include the current Unitary Plan zoning and controls for the Liston Village site, in regard to the potential for future development opportunities if it were not to be used for open space.

h)      thank William Brydon for his attendance.

Local Board feedback on the Productivity Commission inquiry into local government funding and financing

 

Resolution number PKTPP/2019/171

MOVED by Chairperson H Doig, seconded by Member D Holm:  

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)         welcome the Commission’s report - the topic of which is essential given the funding pressure that Auckland Council is under.

b)        agree that a certain amount of ‘user pays’ is necessary and should for example be applied to determining the need for and extent of business differentials. However the local board considers that the “ability to pay” principle should predominate in situations where assistance from central government or postponement is not available.

c)         note the Commission’s finding that there is “little or no evidence that rates have generally become less affordable”.

d)        agree the need for new funding tools to address the key pressures arising from:

i)          supplying enough infrastructure to support rapid urban growth

ii)         adapting to climate change

iii)       coping with the growth in tourism

iv)       coping with the accumulation of responsibilities placed on local government by central government

e)         agree with pursuing the option of a “value capture” funding tool where property owners (inclusive of commercial property owners) enjoy windfall gains in their property values from such changes as introduction of:

i)          planning changes,

ii)         light rail and the Central Rail Link

iii)       movement in the urban rural boundaries,

iv)       the removal of power pylons, etc.

f)          agree that a new funding stream, from central government to local government, should be developed to support essential new works.

g)        support a tax on vacant land.  Noting that vacant land may not necessarily mean empty land.

h)        agree that the role of NZTA should be extended to critical local roads under threat from climate change.

i)          agree that where local services also benefit national interests, central government should contribute funding.

j)          agree with the recommendation to phase out the current rates rebate scheme and introduce a national rates postponement scheme as a way of making the current funding scheme more equitable and transparent

k)         agree that Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) could help councils nearing their debit limits and at times should be used to support high grown councils approaching their debt limits to continue to invest in development.

l)          agree with the recommendation that the Government create a climate-resilience agency and associated fund to help at‑risk councils design, and possibly relocate and rebuild, wastewater, stormwater and flood‑protection infrastructure threatened by impacts of climate change.

m)       agree that the Government should legislate to enable councils in tourist centres to implement an accommodation levy.

n)        agree that a cause of funding pressures on local government is the continued accumulation of tasks and responsibilities passed from central government, without adequate funding means.

o)        support creating a new three-waters regulatory regime to enforce minimum standards improve the performance of the three-water sector.  Noting that the regime would be permissive and flexible about how councils meet these standards, but with a backstop arrangement applied to minimum health and environmental standards.
