MOVED by Chairperson R Jackson, seconded by Deputy Chairperson J O'Connor:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

c)      resolves that individual workshop and briefing agenda items may be closed to the public and media where advice has been received from relevant council staff that the issue would most likely be discussed in a confidential part of a business meeting under the principles set out in the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA).

d)      requests that the agendas of upcoming workshops are publicised on the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board webpage and usual social media channels.

e)      requests that the supporting documents and a record of workshops are publicised on the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board webpage and usual social media channels as soon as possible after the workshop, excluding those related to items held in a closed session under clause (c) of this resolution, noting that staff will make best efforts to publicise materials and workshop records within two working days after the workshop was held.

Tony Reidy, Senior Policy Planner, was in attendance via skype to address the board in support of this item.

 

Resolution number DT/2021/66

MOVED by Chairperson R Jackson, seconded by Member T Deans:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

a)        do not support those parts of Plan Change 60 – Open Space and Other Rezoning Matters (PC60), which are for the purposes of selling open space and reserves noting that the vast majority of submissions (85 of 115) opposed the plan change and that a number of local boards also oppose the sale of parks, open spaces, and reserves.

 

b)        note that our parks, reserves and open spaces are a finite resource which must be valued and protected, and which are essential to:

i)       the social, physical, and mental health of our communities, and are essential to support population growth

ii)      support the needs of our expanding and diversifying population – and serving people of all ages and stages, and all abilities

iii)    support Auckland Council’s environmental, climate change, and urban ngahere strategies and aspirations

iv)    the amenity and enjoyment of our neighborhoods

v)      preserving our cultural and natural heritage

 

c)         note that public consultation on the proposed revocation of reserve status for part of 24R Linwood Reserve was undertaken in accordance with the provisions of s24(1) of the Reserves Act 1977, from the period 25 February to 14 April 2021, and that 13 submissions were received regarding the proposal.

 

d)        note that the proposed revocation of reserve status for part of 24R Linwood Reserve will be reported to a future meeting of the Regulatory Committee in due course.

 

e)         oppose the revocation of reserve status of part of Linwood Reserve, Forrest Hill for the following reasons:

i)      the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board has previously resolved at its 20 October 2015 meeting (DT/2015/205) opposition to the revocation of the reserve status, and opposing the sale of, this portion of Linwood Reserve;

ii)     the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board Open Space Network Plan identified a shortfall of parks and open spaces in the area; and

iii)    connectivity from this reserve to surrounding streets would be reduced, particularly the loss of walkway and crucial linkage used by school students and those coming from Forrest Hill Road, and is not aligned with Auckland Council policies encouraging increased safe walking and cycling connections

CARRIED

 

Resolution number DT/2021/67
