Resolution number OP/2021/54

MOVED by Member L Fuli, seconded by Chairperson R Autagavaia:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)         receive the Notice of Motion by member Lotu Fuli to retain the reserve at 11R  Birmingham Road in council ownership for public use

b)         revoke in part resolution OP/2020/80, Emergency Budget 2020/2021 – Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board feedback, response to question 3, paragraph 4 being:

            Maintain capital investment by disposing or granting concessions: The reality for Otara-Papatoetoe area is that we have very little asset left for disposal.  In our view, at best, this lever can be used up to 30 per cent only after a closer analysis to assess opportunities from underutilized facilities (E.g. East Tamaki Hall) or small pockets of land (e.g. car park areas). However, ensure equity in service to the local area from the network of facilities.

            from the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board 16 June 2020

c)         request the Governing Body revoke in part resolution GB/2020/71 c) (Schedule A, line 28) which approved the disposal of 11R Birmingham Road as part of the Emergency Budget 2020/2021

d)         request the Parks Arts Community and Events Committee does not approve the revocation of the reserve status of 11R Birmingham road when the matter comes before it for decision after the public consultation and the consideration of the matter by the independent commissioner

e)         note that the site was approved for sale by the Governing Body and the local board at the time of the Emergency Budget and COVID-19 lock down based on desk top research and the Open Space provision Policy standards without any understanding or advice about the existing use by the community, the need for Auckland Council’s access to the esplanade for maintenance, and future opportunities to connect the reserve to the wider open space network in the area.
