Auckland Transport – Regional Land Transport Plan 2021

 

Resolution number PPK/2021/48

MOVED by Chairperson B Catchpole, seconded by Member S Smurthwaite:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)            receive the Auckland Transport – Regional Land Transport Plan 2021 report.

 

b)         provide the following feedback on the Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) 2021:

 

1)            The board believe the RLTP 2021 correctly identifies the most important transport challenges facing Auckland.

 

2)            The board believe that allocation of funding to electrify the rail line to Pukekohe, increase the number of electric/hydrogen buses, start decarbonisation of the ferry fleet and funding to support the uptake of electric cars are very important.  Although the board believes incentives for the uptake of electric cars should be a central government matter.

 

3)            The board believe the road safety projects which align with Auckland Transport’s Vision Zero strategy are very important.

 

4)            The board believe the proposed travel choices projects are very important.

 

5)            The board believe the better transport connections and roading projects are very important.

 

6)            The board believe the walking and cycling projects are very important.

 

7)            The board believe the projects proposed for transport infrastructure relating to Auckland’s growth are very important.

 

8)            The board believe managing the transport assets is very important.

 

9)            The board believe funding for community projects, funding to undertake long-term planning for the future and customer experience and technology improvements are very important.

 

10)         The board would like to see the Papakura bus metro included with the Papakura train station park and ride upgrade.

 

Focus on Climate

 

11)         The board supports the electrification of the rail line to Pukekohe and beyond to Hamilton. This is an advocacy point in the Papakura Local Board Plan 2020.

 

12)         The board supports increasing the number of electric/hydrogen buses and replacing the Auckland vehicle fleet with new EV vehicles.

 

13)         The board has an advocacy point in outcome 3 of the local board plan for more local initiatives to contribute to decarbonisation by encouraging more use of public transport.  Examples would be electric on-demand public transport options or better bike storage at transport hubs.  The board is thankful to Auckland Transport for the opportunity to be trialling an on-demand bus service in its local board area.

 

14)         In the Local Board Plan 2020 outcome 4 the board advocates for monitoring and improving our air quality. The board requests Auckland Transport to work with the appropriate authorities to monitor the improvements in air quality resulting from the initiatives proposed:

 

-       Congestion pricing scheme

-       Electric/hydrogen buses

-       Other local initiatives such as on demand bus services and modal transport shifts.

 

15)         Papakura train station will be the hub for the Te Huia service (Hamilton / Papakura train service) and the board advocates for the electrification of the rail line from Pukekohe to Hamilton to reduce carbon emissions.

 

Impact of Covid-19

 

16)         The board is conscious of the importance of public transport use to reduce traffic congestion and reduce the impact on the environment.  The board is aware public transport use has been significantly affected as a result of Covid-19 and supports initiatives to encourage the community to return to public transport use.

 

Development opportunities

 

17)         The board is happy to see $11 million proposed for the Papakura rail station park and ride and would like this to also include consideration for an upgraded bus metro station at this location.

 

18)         The board is aware that with this budget the demand for parking at the station is still likely to be greater than the parking upgrade is proposed to provide.  The board requests funding further alternative options to decrease demand for parking at the station, eg:  on demand bus services similar to the current trial underway at Takaanini, Papakura.  Pending success of this service it could be expanded to Red Hill and Conifer Grove/Waiata Shores.

 

19)         The board supports the Franklin Local Board’s proposal for a south eastern bus link that enables commuters from Ardmore, Clevedon and Kawakawa Bay a public transport link to the Papakura train station, thereby relieving parking demand at the Papakura train station.

 

20)         The board is supportive of Auckland Transport working with Panuku to investigate opportunities for high rise development (parking underneath, retail at grade with residential above) at its transport hub.  The board sees this as an opportunity to access additional funding for selling air rights to assist with funding better park and ride facilities.

 

21)         The board is aware that the proposed designs for the new stations at Drury and Paerata will have limited parking available and advocates for planning for the growth in the area by adding additional parking capacity in the design. 

 

Safety and maintenance

 

22)         The board is supportive of the Auckland Transport proposal for greater investment to make the roading network safer.

 

23)         The board requests additional funding for integrated safety measures to address pedestrian safety and connectivity for roads where development happens and there is no chance of upgrade. The issue of rural roads requiring upgrading to urban road standards in response to significant growth in the local board area is a safety concern.  There are examples where rural road ditches need covering and footpaths installed yet the location does not allow the remedial costs to be placed on a developer, eg:  Walters Road.  Children are having to cross busy arterial roads putting themselves at risk because there are no appropriate traffic controls in place, eg:  pedestrian crossings, footpaths and traffic calming devices. 

 

24)         The Hingaia area is also an area experiencing significant growth that requires safety measures, eg:  from the Papakura motorway along Hingaia Road to Karaka bridge and the finishing off of Hingaia Road, as well as signalising the Oakland Road and Hingaia Road intersection and speed reduction measures where appropriate.

 

25)         The board has an advocacy point in its local board plan 2020 to encourage better planning of new roads to ensure appropriate road widths.  This would enable more vehicles to be parked outside housing without obstructing or narrowing the roadway.

 

26)         The board also believes Auckland Transport should be encouraging shared pathways as a standard requirement for new developments as this will encourage a behaviour change and enhance a safe multi-modal experience.

 

27)         The Local Board Plan 2020 outcome 3 advocates for the establishment of safe and clear walking and cycling links between key facilities to encourage a shift away from using motor vehicles.

 

28)         The board advocates to Auckland Transport for budget for safety measures for roads, footpaths and intersections to mitigate intensification and growth impacts on safety and traffic flow.

 

29)         The board advocates for budget to progress the removal of through traffic, including buses, from the Papakura main street (Great South Road), and the modelling for a centre bypass with and without lights.

 

30)         Historically road maintenance has not kept pace with traffic volumes and growth.  The board requests the backlog of work needing completion to be addressed. Papakura has a lot of development and regular truck movements across the urban area.  The board would like provision made in the RLTP for funding to address the backlog of work in the road maintenance area.

 

31)         The board also advocates for improved pathway safety including lighting, accessibility and proactive maintenance to prevent problems.

 

32)         The board requests funding support to create a pedestrian friendly environment on Broadway, Papakura, between Great South Road and O’Shannessey Street.

 

33)         The board requests that Auckland Transport funds the removal of the gobi blocks on Manuroa Road as part of the programme to upgrade the road.

 

Rapid and frequent train and bus services

 

34)         The board is pleased to see the RLTP is funding a third rail line and potentially a fourth line between Wiri and Westfield. 

 

35)         The board advocates for accelerated planning for the third rail line to be extended further south for freight transportation to free up the commuter network for more efficiencies.  This advocacy is reflected in the Papakura Local Board Plan 2020.

 

36)         The board is heartened to see recognition in the RLTP of the requirement for rail separation in Takaanini as this is an advocacy point in the Papakura Local Board Plan 2020 and has been for some time.  The board believes this matter will become more of an issue as the City Rail Link comes online and the frequency of trains increases.

 

Local Board programmes

 

37)         The local board supports the Local Board Capital Transport Fund being reinstated to the pre-Covid levels going forward. 

 

38)         However, the board is disappointed that its Local Board Capital Transport Fund allocation of $2.4 million for the Pescara/Pylon Point to Elliott Street boardwalk and pathway made prior to Covid is currently not being reinstated.

 

39)         The board requests that the Local Board Capital Transport Fund budget allocated to projects from previous financial years be restored.

 

40)         The board supports the restoration of the Community Safety Fund and requests all eligible projects be commenced by the end of the 2019 – 2022 electoral term.

 

41)         The board notes the $423 million is allocated for the State Highway One Papakura to Drury South project and requests $7 million be allocated to the Pescara Point to Elliott Street boardwalk and pathway to connect the State Highway One cycleway to the Papakura town centre.  This pathway aligns with Auckland Transport’s aspiration to encourage modal change in how people move around.

 

42)         The Franklin, Manurewa and Papakura Local Boards all have local path plans.

 

43)         The board requests budget allocation to allow the three local boards to connect multi-modal shared cycleways in the south, for instance, the Hunua trail and Waiata Shores bridge to allow bike riders to use the pathways for connections within the area. 

 

44)         The board also seeks assistance and funding to leverage opportunities to connect the cycleway network to the Mill Road project and beyond.

 

45)         The board advocates to Auckland Transport to ensure local recruitment is undertaken for local projects and that people are paid the living wage as a minimum. This would support the local board outcome 1, a vibrant and prosperous local economy, with the objective “thriving business in the local board area as local people buy from local businesses”; and the initiative:  “continue to advocate to the Governing Body and council-controlled organisations to use their buying power to create or support local employment and economic development”

 

Policy changes

 

46)         The board believe increasing fines for unsafe driving are less important as there is a tipping point where people won’t be able to afford to pay the fines and therefore it won’t be a deterrent and those that can afford to pay don’t care.

 

47)         The board believe the demerit scheme to address persistent unsafe driving is moderately important as it does drive a behavioural change.

 

48)         The board believe congestion charging is moderately important.

 

49)         The board acknowledges the congestion pricing scheme is likely to:

·         be effective in encouraging public transport use

·         encourage driver behaviour to avoid peak times thereby levelling the peak demand

·         encourage the use of other transport modes.

 

50)         The board is concerned about the financial impact on people already struggling in the low and limited income brackets.  The price of housing forces these people to live in the outer suburbs, thereby they are forced to travel to their work which may be within the city centre trial area.

 

51)         The board is also concerned if the congestion pricing scheme area was to be expanded further into the southern region as more low income people would be impacted.

 

52)         The board welcomes investigations into timing and geographic ring fencing to ensure that low income workers who have no alternative are not impacted by the congestion pricing scheme.

 

Environmental and climate change policies

 

53)         The board believe higher standards for fuel emissions is moderately important.  The board agree to it being imposed on council vehicles but to encourage the general public an assistance scheme may be required as often people can’t afford to get their vehicles suitably repaired or upgraded.

 

54)         The board believe incentives to promote electric vehicle ownership is very important but see this as a central government responsibility.

 

55)         The board believe that the removal of the Fringe Benefit Tax for employers who subsidise public transport for their employees is very important.

 

Regional Fuel Tax

 

56)         The board supports the proposal to vary the Regional Fuel Tax       scheme.

 

57)          The board is pleased that the Mill Road project will also be funded by the Regional Fuel Tax. This project is a significant project for the Papakura area.  The board believe there are opportunities to link the Mill Road cycleway to the State Highway One cycleway and advocates for the regional fuel tax component to part fund this work. 

 

58)          The board requests a budget be allocated that will allow Auckland Transport to support local boards to deliver connected pathways in the south that link into State Highway One and the Mill Road projects as well as the Hingaia peninsula and the Takaanini / Drury area. 

 

59)          The board is pleased to see the road safety programme increased with an additional $22million of the Regional Fuel Tax funding.  The board advocates for funding that will respond to growth that impacts rural roads to ensure the timely provision of footpaths, cycleways, pedestrian crossings and speed limits.

 

60)          The board advocates for funding for the shared pathway from Pescara Point (State Highway One shared pathway) to Elliott Street (Greenways/Pathways projects 12 and 13) both as an active transport connection and a tourism opportunity to link to the town centre into the cycleways network.  The board is very supportive of connecting cycleways, however, the costs associated are prohibitive for a local board to deliver.

 

61)          The board requests the establishment of a budget that would respond to the challenge of rural roads becoming urban, ie: Auckland Transport work with Healthy Waters to pipe and cover ditch drains for footpaths where there is no opportunity for developers to contribute, eg:  Walters Road and Airfield Road

 

Connected Communities

             

62)          The board seeks the Drury to Papatoetoe Great South Road corridor issues to be addressed including the on road cycleway in Takaaini that should be separated from Great South Road.

Papakura Senior Citizens Hall - Transfer of assets to Auckland Council

 

Resolution number PPK/2021/52

MOVED by Member S Smurthwaite, seconded by Deputy Chairperson J Robinson:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)         recommend that the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee decline the transfer of Papakura Senior Citizens Hall to Auckland Council, noting that:

i)             the Papakura Senior Citizens Club is no longer in existence

ii)            the Senior Citizens Club Deed of Incorporation would require council to hold the hall in trust to benefit older people in Papakura and surrounding areas.  This creates limitations on the use of the hall.

iii)           there is no identified need for additional hall/venue for hire space as there is capacity for more bookings and activities in other council owned facilities in Papakura

iv)           the hall is in poor condition with weathertightness, internal guttering and fire safety system issues

v)            there are significant financial constraints outlined in the draft Recovery Budget 2021-2031 with no funding available to bring the hall up to standard or for ongoing renewals and operating costs

vi)           there is support for the Papakura Senior Citizens Club to distribute the proceeds of sale to charitable groups to benefit older people in Papakura and surrounding areas.

 

b)        recommend that the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee approve the withdrawal of Caveat 073463.1 subject to Auckland Council staff confirming there are no ongoing requirements arising from the Deed and Bond.

 

c)         request advice and report back from officers on the status of the local board funding granted to Papakura Senior Citizens Club in the 2020/2021 financial year given that the club has been wound up.

a)         approve in principle the integration of the Papakura Service Centre into Sir Edmund Hillary Library, Papakura

b)        note that there will be a comprehensive training programme for libraries staff to ensure they can support customers seeking assistance with service centre transactions.

c)         note that the community will be made aware of the change to the Papakura Service Centre, six to eight weeks prior to the change implementation, and request that the local board be integrated into the communications plan.

d)        request that the Papakura Local Board be engaged in the design of the new library layout for providing an integrated service.

e)         agree that the health, safety and wellbeing of council staff and the public is a high priority and note that officers have assured the local board that all aspects of this change and the impact on health and safety as it applies to Sir Edmund Hillary Library have been considered, and further that security measures to accommodate the new service centre functions including cash-handling facilities will be implemented, and these security measures will continue to be audited and updated as required.

f)          request an update on how customer services will be integrated into Te Paataka Koorero o Takaanini ( the Takaanini Community Hub and Library.

g)        note that the use of local libraries is an allocated local board decision making responsbility, and therefore the local board continues to seek early, proactive engagement and reporting by staff to give effect to the local board’s governance role.

Draft Statement of Expectations for Council-controlled Organisations

 

Resolution number PPK/2021/55

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Robinson, seconded by Member K Mealamu:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)         provide the following feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations, prepared in accordance with s64B of the Local Government Act 2002:

i)             the board supports the preparation of a Statement of Expectations (SOE) for Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs).

ii)            the board notes that the SOE is intended to be part of a wider framework of accountability for CCOs, along with the CCO Accountability Policy, the CCO Governance Manual, and the Statements of Expectations and Intent for each CCO.

iii)           the Independent Panel on the Review of Council Controlled Organisations in 2020 recommended that the SOE should set out:

·         how each CCO should conduct relations with the governing body, local boards, Māori entities and the public

·         the council’s expectations of individual CCOs as well as of CCOs generally

·         the extent to which the council expects CCOs to consult it when developing significant plans or strategies

·         the council’s expectations about CCO chief executives’ salaries and tenure.

iv)           while the draft SOE generally sets out the provision recommended by the Independent Panel, it does not include expectations of individual CCOs. The board support the recommendation of the Independent Panel that these should form part of the SOE.

v)            The board support the draft SOE’s acknowledgement that ‘local boards are not a ‘stakeholder’, but an integral part of the council’s governance system’ and that ‘local boards will be involved as governors (not stakeholders) when the decision impacts on their local governance role or has high community interest in their local community

vi)           more detail is needed in the draft SOE regarding how CCOs should give meaningful effect to the local governance role of local boards beyond the requirements to ‘build and maintain good relationships’ and ‘consult with local boards genuinely and early’

vii)          the draft SOE should include reference to CCOs working to deliver strategies and key activities from local board plans, alongside the existing references to the Auckland Plan and the Long-term Plan.

viii)        the board acknowledges the need to implement the draft SOE alongside the revisions to the CCO Accountability Policy currently being consulted on as part of the Long-term Plan. However, the board believe that the process and timeframe for local boards to provide input into the draft SOE has not been adequate and does not meet the local board’s expectations regarding having the opportunity to provide meaningful and considered views.

ix)           further revisions of the SOE and the CCO Governance Manual to give effect to the recommendations of the Independent Panel should use a process that allows meaningful and considered input from local boards.

Public feedback on proposal to make new navigation rules

 

Resolution number PPK/2021/57

MOVED by Member S Smurthwaite, seconded by Member F Auva'a:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)         receive the public feedback on the proposal to make a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-Rohe Urungi Āhuru 2021 / Auckland Council Navigation Safety Bylaw 2021 and associated controls as attached to this agenda report.

b)        provide the following Papakura Local Board views on how the Bylaw Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal for a new Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Ture ā-Rohe Urungi Āhuru 2021 / Auckland Council Navigation Safety Bylaw 2021:

i)          The board does not support increasing the speed to 18 knots as they believe:

·         it suits the larger powerful vehicles rather than smaller boats and yachts
