Notice of Motion - Chip Seal

 

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Deputy Chairperson D Grant:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)         note that according to the Auckland Transport Reseal Guidelines that were adopted in 2014, the chip seal method “must” be used to reseal all roads unless specific criteria apply (as listed in section 5.1 of the guidelines), meaning that most suburban roads across Auckland will be resealed in chip seal, or be partially resealed in chip seal, under this policy, even where they were previously sealed in asphaltic concrete.

b)         note the considerable concern and anxiety from Kaipātiki residents over the effects that chip sealed roads are currently having on the community and environment, including (but not limited to):

·    vehicles having windscreens cracked, brake discs damaged, brake pad sensors and ABS sensors damaged, and paint scratched by loose chips flicked up when driven over (even at slow speeds)

·    cars, motorbikes and bicycles skidding on loose chips

·    children having difficulty skating, scootering, trike-riding and bike-riding on footpaths covered in loose chips

·    damage caused to carpets, wooden floors and decks after loose stones are tracked into houses

·    loose chips on the berm grass flicked up by lawn mowers at pedestrians, cyclists and passing vehicles

·    loose chips accumulating in the gutter and stormwater network

·    increase in noise to neighbouring residents from vehicles driving over loose chip seal

·    bare patches on roads where chips have shed.

c)         express concern at the numerous safety issues that the Auckland Transport Reseal Guidelines are having on the users of suburban roads that have been resealed with chip seal in the last few years, including pedestrians, school children, cyclists, motorists, skaters, scooters, prams and dogs.

d)         express concern that for many chip-sealed roads, loose chips continue to travel onto footpaths and grass berms, down driveways, into houses, and onto neighbouring asphalt-sealed roads for weeks, months - and in some cases years – after they are laid, and after multiple sweeps of the road.

e)         express concern that the grade of stone used in chip seal surfaces appears to be a smaller chip than used in the past, and that the current method used is resulting in much more loose chip shedding from the road than in the past, acknowledging that some roads have always been chip-sealed but that the extent of shedding (and resulting problems) has never been at the level per road that we are now seeing.

f)          considers that a change from asphaltic concrete to a loose chip seal surface is effectively a downgrade to an inferior quality of road seal and a drop in standard of a core council responsibility, even where it complies with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s "M6 Chip Sealing Standards".

g)         request that Auckland Transport immediately stop resealing suburban roads in chip seal, and update the Auckland Transport Reseal Guidelines with a revision that endorses asphaltic concrete (or equivalent) road surfaces as the default surface, rather than chip seal.

h)         request that Auckland Transport and Auckland Council prioritise spending in the 2021– 2031 Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) to ensure that all of Auckland’s suburban roads are sealed to a safe, useable and quality standard, such as asphaltic concrete (or equivalent), acknowledging that this will require a considerable increase in budget allocation and may not qualify for subsidy from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

i)          note that while Auckland Transport is empowered with governance, management and decision-making of Auckland’s road corridors, it does not own the roads (Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009, Section 46, Clause 4), and it is the duty of elected members to raise concerns about Auckland Transport’s decisions and management on behalf of the people of Auckland who do own the roads via the Auckland Council.

j)          request that this resolution and the associated Notice of Motion report and attachments are circulated to the Auckland Transport Board, the Mayor and Auckland Council Governing Body members, the Independent Māori Statutory Board, and all Local Board members for their information and action.

 

 

Member Andrew Shaw moved an amendment by way of an additional clause between clause i) and clause j).

 

MOVED by Member A Shaw, seconded by Member C Schmidt:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

j)               acknowledge that the costs of asphalt is on average $38 / square metre, as compared with chip seal which costs on average $8 / square metre, and that:

i)               such an increase in budget is unlikely given the current financial constraints of both Auckland Council and Auckland Transport given the impact of COVID and the desire to keep rates at an affordable level for Aucklanders:

ii)              such a move towards the increased use of asphalt will have an impact on Auckland Transport’s ability to attract subsidy from Waka Kotahi NZTA for road maintenance and repairs generally, thereby increasing the cost of road sealing more broadly;

iii)            an increase in reliance on asphaltic concreate as the default surface (rather than chip seal) will most likely necessitate a reduction in other transport budget lines set out in the proposed Regional Land Transport Programme (RLTP), which could have significant implications on the amount of funding made available through local board-specific budgets (such as the Community Safety Fund, or the Local Board Transport Capital Fund); and

iv)            also note that Asphalt has a much larger carbon footprint than chipseals, and that this request is in conflict with our boards support for the Auckland Council’s draft submission on the Climate Change Commission’s draft advice to Government (resolution number KT/2021/2)  and Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland's Climate Plan (resolution number KT/2020/61).

Decision-making responsibilities policy

 

Resolution number KT/2021/50

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Member A Tyler:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)         endorse the draft Decision-making Responsibilities of Auckland Council’s Governing Body and Local Boards Policy as presented as Attachment A to the agenda report.

b)        support the recommendation of the Joint Governance Working Party (JGWP) that the Decision-making Responsibilities of Auckland Council’s Governing Body and Local Boards Policy be clarified around the role local boards can play with regard to special liquor licence applications, and request that local boards be sent appropriate and timely notification of such applications where public consultation is required.

c)         support the Joint Governance Working Party (JGWP) recommendation that local boards should hold decision-making responsibility over drainage reserves, provided such decisions are constrained to those that will not negatively affect the drainage functions with the reserve and stormwater network operations.

d)        support the Joint Governance Working Party (JGWP) recommendation that the Decision-making Responsibilities of Auckland Council’s Governing Body and Local Boards Policy be amended to provide for the ability of local boards to tailor locally delivered projects within regional environmental programmes, subject to advice from staff on the types of projects that be tailored.

e)         support the inclusion of health and safety considerations being made explicit within the Decision-making Responsibilities of Auckland Council’s Governing Body and Local Boards Policy, which will help protect the council from liability and minimise risk.

f)          support the expansion of the Waiheke pilot to include a trial of delegated decision-making on key issues relating to Auckland Transport (namely street trading and town centre / urban design), as piloting these delegations will help identify any issues that should be given consideration before a formal delegation to all local boards can be provided.

g)        request that the Waiheke pilot is expanded to include the Kaipātiki Local Board area, and requests advice from relevant staff around the process employed to extend the pilot accordingly.

h)        support the delegation for developing and approving area plans be given to local boards, provided the Governing Body can make its views known on such plans.

i)          request clearer wording in the “Allocation of decision-making for non-regulatory activities” table, in the “Local Parks and Community Services” section that Local Board responsibility for “parks” includes all reserve land held under the Reserves Act, as well as any land held under the Local Government Act that is used as a park (ie. used principally for community, recreational, environmental, cultural, or spiritual purposes).

j)          request that Auckland Transport delegate decision-making over unformed legal roads (also known as ‘paper roads’) to local boards, provided that such delegation is constrained to those decisions that will not negatively affect future functioning of the local roading network.

Local board consultation feedback and input into the 10-year Budget 2021-2031

 

Mark Purdie, Lead Financial Advisor, and Daniel Han, Advisor, were in attendance to address the board in support of this item.

 

 

Resolution number KT/2021/51

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Member A Hartley:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)         receive consultation feedback on the proposed Kaipātiki Local Board priorities and activities for 2021/2022 and key advocacy initiatives for 2021-2031.

b)        receive consultation feedback on regional topics in the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 from people and organisations based in the Kaipātiki Local Board area.

c)         thank the Kaipātiki community for taking the time to submit their feedback on regional and local topics as part of consultation on the10-year Budget 2021-2031.

d)        note that feedback on the local board’s proposal to investigate a targeted rate to fund a local project was split, with slightly more supporting it (47%) than opposing it (42%). Of those who ranked the proposed local projects, 49% ranked commuter and recreational walking and cycling links as the preferred option, followed by 30% who ranked the mitigation of flooding and seawater inundation at Little Shoal Bay Reserve as the preferred option, and 26% who ranked a multi-sport facility at Birkenhead War Memorial Park as the preferred option.

e)         confirm that the local board will not be pursuing the investigation of establishing a targeted rate to fund local projects in Kaipātiki, as the consultation results were not clear-cut enough to justify community support for investigating a targeted rate.

f)          approve the following advocacy initiatives (in no particular order) for inclusion (as an appendix) to its 2021/2022 Local Board Agreement:

i)          Kaipātiki Local Board One Local Initiative (OLI) - Birkenhead War Memorial Park Redevelopment:

A)        request that the funding for the local board’s One Local Initiative be brought forward to year three of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 so that planning of this important project can commence and the impacted community have some certainty around delivery.

B)        request that greater flexibility is given to the approx. $8 million of funding in the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 currently earmarked for the renewal component of Birkenhead War Memorial Masterplan, to include delivery of new or enhanced developments within this current budget allocation, in particular the aquatic play area (including splash pad).

C)        note that by bringing forward the boards One Local Initiative to be delivered in a staged approach, and by enabling flexibility of the current budget, the project is likely to be able to proceed at a reduced scope that will meet the short-medium term needs and will offer significant savings to council.

ii)         Northern Community Recycling Centre: 

A)        support the proposed inclusion of budget towards new and existing community recycling sites in the 10-year Budget 2021-2031.

B)        request that funding is allocated towards the establishment of a northern Resource Recovery Park to provide the “hub” in a community-led hub-and-spoke model of resource recycling in the northern local board areas.

C)        request that funding is allocated to provide a Resource Recovery Centre in Kaipātiki Local Board area, in line with local board feedback into the Resource Recovery Network Strategy [resolution number KAI/2020/38].

iii)       Plan Change Request – Review Schedule 10:

A)        request that funding is included in year one of the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 to progress a Plan Change to review Schedule 10 of the Auckland Unitary Plan to increase tree protection across Auckland, process the backlog of notable tree applications, and support the Ngahere Strategy and tree coverage across the Auckland region.

iv)       Wairau Stream Catchment Water Quality:

A)        support the proposed extension and increase of the Water Quality Targeted Rate.

B)        request that Water Quality Targeted Rate funding is prioritised to improve water quality and pollution prevention in the Wairau Stream Catchment that crosses the Kaipātiki and Devonport-Takapuna Local Board areas, including for gross pollutant traps.

C)        request that Water Quality Targeted Rate funding is prioritised for pollution compliance and monitoring of businesses identified through the local board’s Industrial Pollution Prevention Programme (IPPP) in the Wairau Stream catchment area.

D)        note that the Kaipātiki and Devonport-Takapuna Local Boards are currently working together with Healthy Waters to improve water quality in the Wairau Stream Catchment, but that it is difficult to progress within existing local board budgets.

v)         Kauri Dieback Prevention:

A)        support the proposed extension of the Natural Environment Targeted Rate.

B)        request the continuation of investment into upgrading, rerouting and reopening tracks, and installing shoe hygiene stations, in the Kaipātiki area to prevent or mitigate the spread of kauri dieback disease.

vi)       Northcote Development:

A)        advocate for the continuation of investment into the Northcote Development, including the delivery of the Te Ara Awataha greenway and park developments, a new community building, maximum public open space within the town centre, retention of mature trees, inclusion of cultural and heritage aspects and public art, walking and cycling links, and public transport connections, to support current and future residents of the Northcote area.

B)        advocate for the retention of the “Mitchell Building” (site of the current Northcote Library) as part of the Northcote Development.

vii)      Local Board Transport Capital Fund:

A)        support the full reinstatement of the local board’s capital transport funding to the levels in place prior to the emergency budget 2020, to ensure that local boards can reflect local community concerns and requests for changes and enhancements in the road corridor.

viii)     New Regional Park:

A)        advocate for Chelsea Estate Heritage Park - either on its own or together with  Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve - to become a new regional park in recognition of the unique heritage, history, ecology and general significance of Chelsea Estate Heritage park and the wider headland, as per our feedback into the Draft 2021 Regional Parks Management Plan.

B)        request that staff continue to work with the Kaipātiki Local Board to progress the regional park concept for the Governing Body’s consideration.

C)        request that the Governing Body keeps in mind the possibility of a new regional park incorporating Chelsea Estate Heritage Park when considering regional park funding in the 10-year Budget 2021-2031.

ix)       Local Board Funding Policy

A)        request that a new factor is added to the Local Board Funding Policy related to the amount of tree coverage on public land in the local board area. This is because extra investment is required to (1) eradicate plant and animal pests within bush areas; (2) maintain trees, remove non-native trees, and plant new native trees in bush areas (3) build and maintain infrastructure to support public access to and through bush areas (tracks, boardwalks, bridges, drainage, signage, etc).

x)         Local Board Renewals Capex Budget

A)        advocate for an increase in Kaipātiki Local Board capex renewal budget to ensure that all community facility assets that have been assessed as category 4 and 5 can be funded for repair or replacement in a timely manner.

B)        note that we expect to only be able to afford to renew approximately 80% of category 4 and 5 assets in the coming three-year period.

xi)       Coastal Assets, Little Shoal Bay

A)        support continued investment into renewing coastal assets around the Kaipātiki Local Board coastline.

B)        request that staff continue to work with the Kaipātiki Local Board on options to prevent flooding and seawater inundation at Little Shoal Bay Reserve, to achieve the key outcomes for the reserve and surrounds adopted by the local board [resolution number KT/2020/190], including to protect the flat open grass field area and carparking areas, and to protect and enhance the freshwater ecosystem in the western side of the reserve.

g)        provide the following local board feedback on regional topics in the proposed 10-year Budget 2021-2031 to the Governing Body:

i)          Key issue 1: Proposed investment package – The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal, noting that the Kaipātiki community was split, with slightly more opposed (45%) to the proposal than supporting it (42%), and provide the following comments:

A)        note the impact of the consequences to council’s assets and services of not proceeding with the proposal would be detrimental to the community.

B)        do not support a reduction in the total amount allocated to Locally Driven Initiatives (LDI) capex funding for local boards compared to previous years (pre-Emergency Budget levels), as this budget is essential for delivering on local projects required to support an increase in population, as well as for “topping up” renewal capex to cater for an increase in population.

C)        express the view that local boards need to deliver and support their current and future communities, but cannot do so if not adequately funded out of regional budgets.

D)        do not support any sale of park land or reserve land in the Kaipātiki area in order to make up for regional budget shortfalls, as this land is required to support the current and expected increase in population, particularly where densification is reducing private open space.

E)        note that when borrowing is increased to the highest level in the council’s online “Budget Simulation Trial”, it calculates that all proposals in the 10-year Budget 2021-31 can be fully funded without needing to increase rates, sell assets or find further savings, and that this scenario should be seriously considered in a “recovery budget”.

ii)         Key issue 2: Responding to climate change - The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal, noting that a majority (63%) of the Kaipātiki community support the proposal.

iii)       Key issue 3: Responding to housing and growth – The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal.

iv)       Key issue 4: Investment in our community - The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal, noting that a majority (63%) of the Kaipātiki community support the proposal, however express the following concerns:

A)        an increase in capex renewal funding is needed to adequately ensure that all category 4 and 5 assets can be repaired or replaced in a timely manner

B)        there is not a reduction in the number of libraries, community centres/houses and leisure centres in the area,

C)        there is not a reduction in council service levels or parks/open space/sports fields in the area, especially with the growth in population and housing that we are seeing in Kaipātiki.

D)        note that decisions on local assets are the responsibility of local boards (or remains responsible for delegated decisions) and expects to be included in the earliest discussions on any proposals to reduce services or divest assets in the Kaipātiki area.

v)         Key issue 5: Protecting and enhancing the environment - Water Quality Targeted Rate - The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal, noting that a majority (75%) of the Kaipātiki community either supported both the extension and the increase (46%), or supported only the extension (29%), and request that funding is allocated to improving water quality and preventing pollution in the Wairau stream catchment and estuary.

vi)       Key issue 5: Protecting and enhancing the environment – Natural Environment Targeted Rate - The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal, noting that a majority (64%) of the Kaipātiki community support the proposal and provide the following comments:

A)        kauri dieback is a significant issue in our area and we currently have closed bush reserves due to infection or to prevent infection.

B)        continuing investment into upgrading tracks and installing shoe hygiene stations in the Kaipātiki area to prevent or mitigate the spread of kauri dieback disease is critical.

vii)      Other priorities – Maori Outcomes - The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal for a $150 million Māori Outcomes fund and request that some of this fund is directed towards local Māori outcomes in the Kaipātiki area.

viii)     Other priorities – Social Investment - The Kaipātiki Local Board support the proposal for an annual homelessness operational fund and the proposal to reinstate the constestable funds that were impacted by the Emergency Budget 2020/21.

ix)       Rating Policy, Fee Changes, Strategic Assets – The Kaipātiki Local Board provide the following feedback on the proposals:

A)        do not express an opinion on the proposed changes to the “Urban Rating Area and farm-lifestyle properties”, “City Centre Targeted Rate extension”, “Rodney Drainage Targeted Rate”, “Paremoremo Public Transport Targeted Rate” or proposed extensions to the Manurewa, Glen Innes and Dominion Road Business Improvement District boundaries, as they do not affect the Kaipātiki area.

B)        do not support the proposed “Electricity Network Resilience Targeted Rate” on Vector, noting that more of the Kaipātiki community did not support (40%) than support it (32%), as the local board do not believe that this is the apporiate time to introduce this targeted rate as it will result in approximately $1 increase per month on all powerbills. Ultimately Vector needs to fund and plan for the undergrounding of all powerlines, rather than mitigating the impact of trees on overhead lines.

C)        do not support reintroducing the “Accommodation Provider Targeted Rate” at this time, noting that 42% of the Kaipātiki community did not support the reintroduction, while a total of 25% supported one of the three reinstatement options, as the local board do not believe that this is the appropriate time to reintroduce the targeted rate while many businesses and residents are still recovering from the effects of COVID-19 and the lockdowns.

D)        support the removal of library late return fines (while continuing to charge for lost book replacement fees and fees for rentals), as the local board acknowledge it is a barrier to borrowing books and reading.

E)        support the various new fees and increase in fees (or deposits) as outlined in part four.

x)         Proposals related to strategic assets – The Kaipātiki Local Board provide the following feedback on the proposal:

A)        do not express an opinion on the long-term lease of Bledisloe House or long-term leases of the seven sites in the city centre waterfront precinct.

B)        express concern at the proposed sale of 2 The Strand, Takapuna, and 3 Victoria Road, Devonport, as these are both scheduled heritage buildings in the Unitary Plan. 2 The Strand was endowed to Takapuna City for a library and municipal purposes, and is recognised for its architectural and heritage values; 3 Victoria Road was where the first New Zealand nuclear free declaration was signed, and the site is considered to be the first in New Zealand where women voted in 1893.

C)        support the proposed changes to the CCO Accountability Policy and Auckland Airport Shareholding Policy.
