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.

Landing Drive (will be an extension of existing road)

Road 1

Sistema Way (extension of existing road)

4.       Following consultation with iwi, Ngaati Whanaunga suggested the following additional options:




Te Kapua Drive

Cloud, cumulus


Te Tiki Road

Carved figure

5.       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.

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 Māori 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.     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.

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

12.     Road type: Drive, Way & Road are acceptable road types for the new & extensions to the existing roads, suiting the form and layout of the road, as per the Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines.

13.     Iwi Consultation: All relevant local iwi were written to (via email) and invited to comment. Only Ngaati Whanaunga, Ngati Tamaoho and Ngai Tai ki Tamaki responded, deferring their interests to the other Ngati Whatua entities, who in turn provided no further responses or comments.


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

Local impacts and local board views

16.     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

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

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

18.     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 me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

19.     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

20.     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.
