Draft proposal to make a new Signs Bylaw

File No.: CP2021/09847

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.          To seek support on the draft proposal to make a new Auckland Council and Auckland Transport Ture ā-Rohe mo nga Tohu 2022 / Signs Bylaw 2022 and associated controls before it is finalised for public consultation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       To enable the local board to decide whether to support a proposal to make a new signs bylaw and associated controls, staff have prepared a draft proposal.

3.       The draft proposal is the culmination of decisions by the Regulatory Committee and Board of Auckland Transport on the review of the current Signage Bylaw 2015. These decisions were made at meetings to consider the review’s findings in June 2020 and options in October 2020 and April 2021 and provided direction on the content of the draft proposal.

4.       The draft proposal would continue to enable council to manage the problems signs can cause in relation to nuisance, safety, misuse of public places[1], the Auckland transport system and environment.

5.       The main draft proposals in comparison to the current bylaws about signs are to:

·   combine the current Signage Bylaw 2015 and Election Signs Bylaw 2013

·   increase the current portable sign prohibited area to cover the entire City Centre Zone

·   increase the maximum area of flat wall-mounted signs in the Heavy Industry Zone to 6m2 (currently 2.88m2 for sale of a property and 5m2 for goods, services or events)

·   retain the intent of the rules in the current bylaws (unless otherwise stated) in a way that is up to date and more certain

·   use a bylaw structure, format and wording more aligned to the Auckland Unitary Plan and current council drafting standards.

6.       Staff recommend that the local board support the draft proposal.

7.       There is a reputational risk that the draft proposal or the local board’s support do not reflect the views of people in their local board area. This risk would be partly mitigated by the opportunity for the local board to provide views on public feedback prior to a final decision.

8.       Local board support on the draft proposal will help develop a proposal for the Regulatory Committee to recommend to the Governing Body and for the Board of Auckland Transport. Public consultation is scheduled for September and October, deliberations for March 2022 and a final Governing Body and Board of Auckland Transport decision for April 2022.


 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board:

a)      support the draft Statement of Proposal in Attachment A of this agenda report to make a new Auckland Council and Auckland Transport Ture  ā-Rohe mo nga Tohu 2022 / Signs Bylaw 2022 and associated controls for public consultation.

Horopaki

Context

The draft proposed Bylaw and controls regulate most signs in Auckland

9.       The draft proposed new Auckland Council and Auckland Transport Ture ā-Rohe mo nga Tohu 2022 / Signs Bylaw 2022 and associated controls seek to manage the problems signs can cause in relation to nuisance, safety, misuse of public places, Auckland transport system and environment.

10.     The draft proposed new bylaw and controls:

·   would continue to provide for signs related to activities on the same property as long as they meet certain conditions for their design, construction and duration of display

·   would continue to limit signs unrelated to the day-to-day activities on the land it is located (for example signs on footpaths)

·   would continue to provide more opportunities to display signs about elections, polls and referendums during an election period that would not normally be allowed

·   would continue to be enforced by the Licencing and Regulatory Compliance unit using a graduated compliance model (information / education / enforcement)

·   would remain part of a wider regulatory framework[2]

·   must be adopted using a public consultative process and commence before 28 May 2022 to avoid a regulatory gap (the Signage Bylaw 2015 expires on 28 May 2022).

The proposal is the outcome of a statutory review of the current signage bylaw

11.     The Regulatory Committee (committee) and Board of Auckland Transport (board) requested staff commence the process to make a new bylaw and controls following a statutory review of the Auckland Council and Auckland Transport Signage Bylaw 2015 (refer diagram below).


 

2015 Signage Bylaw review process

12.     Staff have prepared a draft proposal to implement the decision of the committee and board (Attachment A). The draft proposal includes the reasons and decisions which led to the proposed new bylaw and controls and provides a comparison between the current bylaws and the proposed new bylaw and controls.

The local board has an opportunity to provide its views on the draft proposal

13.     The local board has an opportunity to support the draft proposal in Attachment A by resolution to the Regulatory Committee and the Board of Auckland Transport before it is finalised for public consultation.

14.     The board could support the draft proposal for public consultation, recommend changes or defer comment until after it has considered public feedback on the proposal.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

The draft proposal improves how council manages signs in Auckland

15.     The draft proposal makes a new bylaw and controls about signs to better manage the problems signs can cause in relation to nuisance, safety, misuse of public places, Auckland transport system and environment.

16.     The table below summarises the main proposals in comparison to the current bylaws:

Main proposals

Reasons for proposals

·  To make a new bylaw and associated controls that combine the current Signage Bylaw 2015 and Election Signs Bylaw 2013.

·  The current bylaws will be revoked.

·  reduce confusion from having two bylaws about signs.

·  clarify intention to provide more opportunities to display election signs during pre-election periods than would otherwise be allowed for a sign that does not relate to activities on the property.

·  To increase the current portable sign prohibited area to cover the entire City Centre Zone.

·  prioritise the area for pedestrians and place-making activities.

·  remove potential safety risks, nuisance and clutter.

·  improve accessibility for mobility and vision-impaired pedestrians.

·  To increase the maximum area of flat wall-mounted signs in the Heavy Industry Zone to 6m2.

·  allow more visible display of information in an area which has a larger built form and a lower priority on amenity values.

(current maximum is 2.88m2 for sale of a property and 5m2 for goods, services or events on a property).

·  To retain the intent of the rules in the current bylaws (unless otherwise stated) in a way that is up to date and more certain.

·  retain the effect of rules considered to still be appropriate.

·  ensure rules are current, clear, and easier to understand and comply with.

·  To use a bylaw structure, format and wording more aligned to the Auckland Unitary Plan and current council drafting standards.

·  ensure rules are easier to understand and comply with.

·  comply with current council bylaw drafting standards.

·  assist future reviews of the Auckland Unitary Plan in relation to the most appropriate distribution of sign rules.

The draft proposal complies with statutory requirements

17.     The draft new bylaw and controls has been prepared in accordance with statutory requirements to:

·   help manage the problems signs can cause in relation to nuisance, safety, misuse of public places, the Auckland transport system and environment

·   use a structure, format and wording that are easier to read, understand and comply with than the current bylaws about signs and meet current council bylaw drafting standards

·   be authorised by statute, not be repugnant to other legislation, or be unreasonable

·   not give rise to any implications and not be consistent with the Bill of Rights Act

·   not be inconsistent with other Acts, regulations and bylaws (refer footnote 2).

Staff recommend the local board support the draft proposal

18.     Staff recommend that the local board consider whether to support the draft proposal by resolution to the Regulatory Committee and Board of Auckland Transport.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

19.     There are no implications for climate change arising from this decision.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

20.     The draft proposal impacts the operations of several council departments and council-controlled organisations. This includes Auckland Council’s Licencing and Regulatory Compliance Unit and Parks, Sports and Recreation Department, Auckland Unlimited, Panuku and Auckland Transport.

21.     Relevant staff are aware of the impacts of the draft proposal and their implementation role, and the proposal is being developed jointly with Auckland Transport.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

22.     The draft proposal impacts local governance, for example it regulates signs about community events and signs on local facilities and parks.

23.     Representative local board views were provided in April 2021 through a joint working group established by the Regulatory Committee and Board of Auckland Transport.[3] Group members unanimously supported a new bylaw and controls that would be more aligned to the Auckland Unitary Plan and provided suggestions on the detailed content of the Bylaw.[4]

24.     The Regulatory Committee and Board of Auckland Transport considered these views on 20 April 2021 (REG/2021/20) (29/04/2021:18). The committee and board directed staff to draft a new bylaw and controls. Group suggestions on detailed content have been considered in preparing the draft proposal.

25.     This report gives the local board an opportunity to provide its support on the draft proposal by resolution to the Regulatory Committee and Board of Auckland Transport.

26.     The local board will have further opportunity to provide its views to a Bylaw Panel on how the Panel should address matters raised in public feedback to the proposal related to its local board area.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.     The proposal contributes to the Independent Māori Statutory Board’s Māori Plan for Tāmaki Makaurau and the Auckland Plan 2050’s Māori Identity and Wellbeing outcome by supporting Māori who want to make their businesses uniquely identifiable and visible.

28.     The proposal also helps protect all people living in Tāmaki Makaurau from the potential harms and nuisances that signs can cause.

29.     People identifying as Māori presented views during the 2015 signage bylaw review. This feedback primarily identified ways to improve inappropriate signage standards. The draft proposal addresses those views by clarifying and updating standards.

30.     Staff will engage with mana whenua and mataawaka during the public consultative process to ensure Māori are able to provide their views on the proposal.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

31.     There are no financial implications to the local board for any decisions to support the draft proposal for public consultation. The Governing Body and the Board of Auckland Transport will consider any financial implications associated with public notification at a later date.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

32.     The following risk has been identified:

If...

Then...

Mitigation

The draft proposal or the local board’s support do not reflect the view of people in the local board area.

There may be negative views about council’s process to develop the proposal.

The local board will have an opportunity to consider any public feedback and provide its formal views to a Bylaw Panel on how the Panel should address the matters raised in the feedback prior to the final decision being made.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

33.     Staff will present a proposal and any local board support to the Regulatory Committee and Board of Auckland Transport in August 2021.

34.     If at any time a joint bylaw is not able to progress, Auckland Council will continue to progress a bylaw for sign-related matters it is responsible for.

35.     If the Governing Body of Auckland Council and the Board of Auckland Transport decide to proceed with a joint bylaw, the subsequent steps include public consultation, local board views on public feedback, Bylaw Panel deliberations and a final decision by the Governing Body of Auckland Council and Board of Auckland Transport (refer to the diagram in Context).

Government Policy Statement on Housing and Urban Development

File No.: CP2021/10562

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To invite the local board to provide formal input into the Auckland Council submission on the Government Policy Statement on Housing and Urban Development discussion document.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       On 14 June 2021, Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga –  Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released for public consultation a discussion document seeking to inform development of the Government Policy Statement on Housing and Urban Development (GPS-HUD).

3.       The GPS-HUD is intended to communicate the long-term vision and change required for housing and urban development in Aotearoa New Zealand. This will shape future government policy, investment, and programmes of work.

4.       It is intended that the GPS-HUD is also a mechanism to align government policy and activity that affects housing and urban development (for example, components of the Urban Growth Agenda).

5.       It will set out how Government and others will work together by:

·   providing direct support for, and reliable investment in, people and communities

·   enabling everyone who plays an important role in housing and urban development to do what they do best, by providing fit for purpose regulatory, institutional, and policy settings

·   partnering with iwi and Māori to bring innovation and leadership with Māori, by Māori for Māori, in line with our existing Te Maihi o te Whare Māori – Māori and Iwi Housing Innovation framework for action (MAIHI)

·   leading by example, including via Kāinga Ora in reducing emissions and building climate resilience in our homes and all our communities.

6.       Kāinga Ora, as the Crown’s urban development agency, must give effect to the long-term vision outlined in the GPS-HUD. Specific expectations for Kāinga Ora will continue to be set by responsible Ministers each year. These will align with and complement the long-term direction of the GPS-HUD.

7.       There are a range of other outcomes the Government is working towards which are affected by housing and urban development, e.g. Government Policy on Land Transport, Te Waihanga – The New Zealand Infrastructure Commission’s 30-year Infrastructure Strategy, and the National Adaptation Plan for climate change. The GPS-HUD is intended to complement and help deliver on these and other strategies.

8.       The GPS will be reviewed at least every three years.

9.       This consultation is open for public submission from 14 June 2021, with a closing date of 30 July 2021.

10.     Local board feedback will need to be received by 19 July 2021 to be considered for inclusion into the Auckland Council submission on the GPS-HUD. Formal local board feedback received by 26 July 2021 will be appended to the submission.

11.     The consultation discussion document can be found here:

Resource management system reform: Natural and Built Environment Bill exposure draft submission

File No.: CP2021/10561

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide information on Auckland Council’s upcoming submission on the Natural and Built Environments Act exposure draft and invite local board input.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Government is undertaking comprehensive reform of the Resource Management Act (RMA).

3.       Cabinet has agreed to the repeal and replacement of the RMA with three pieces of legislation: a Natural and Built Environments Act, a Spatial Planning Act, and a Managed Retreat and Climate Change Adaptation Act.

4.       The first area of focus is the proposed Natural and Built Environments Bill. Key aspects of this have been released in an exposure draft which will form the basis of a select committee inquiry. Submissions on to the inquiry close on 4 August 2021.

5.       The Natural and Built Environments Bill and Spatial Planning Bill are likely to be introduced in early 2022 and are expected to be in place by early 2023.

6.       Auckland Council will make a submission on the Bill and local board input into that submission is sought, closing on 26 July 2021.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board:

a)      provide feedback on the Natural and Built Environments Act exposure draft for inclusion in the Auckland Council submission, noting that feedback is required by the close of business on 26 July 2021.

Horopaki

Context

Resource management system reform

7.       The Government is undertaking comprehensive reform of the resource management system.

8.       The first stage of this reform was a review which started in 2019 by The Resource Management Review Panel (the Panel). The Panel reported back to the Minister for the Environment in June 2020 in its report New Directions for Resource Management in New Zealand. The report set out a proposed future resource management system, including indicative drafting of legislation for key provisions.

9.       Through this the council arrived at various positions through its submission to the Panel which staff will use to guide submission development on the next stages of reform.

10.     After receiving the Panel’s report, Cabinet decided to proceed with Resource Management Act reform largely modelled on the Panel’s recommendations.

11.     Cabinet agreed to the following objectives for reform:

·   protect and where necessary restore the natural environment, including its capacity to provide for the wellbeing of present and future generations

·   better enable development within environmental biophysical limits including a significant improvement in housing supply, affordability and choice, and timely provision of appropriate infrastructure, including social infrastructure

·   give effect to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and provide greater recognition of te ao Māori, including mātauranga Māori

·   better prepare for adapting to climate change and risks from natural hazards, and better mitigate emissions contributing to climate change

·   improve system efficiency and effectiveness, and reduce complexity, while retaining appropriate local democratic input.

12.     Cabinet agreed to the repeal and replacement of the RMA with three pieces of legislation (names may be subject to change):

·   The Natural and Built Environments Act (NBA) to provide for land use and environmental regulation (this would be the primary replacement for the current RMA)

·   The Strategic Planning Act (SPA) to integrate with other legislation relevant to development (such as the Local Government Act and Land Transport Management Act) and require long-term regional spatial strategies

·   The Managed Retreat and Climate Change Adaptation Act (CAA) to enable and address issues associated with managed retreat and funding and financing adaptation.

13.     It is intended that the NBA and SPA be introduced to Parliament in by early 2022, with their passage through the house likely to take around a year.

The NBA exposure draft and Select Committee Inquiry Process

14.     This exposure draft of the NBA has been released to enable early public engagement on some aspects of the proposed legislation and inform the development of the final bill. This will be conducted through a select committee inquiry.

15.     The purpose of the inquiry is to provide feedback on the extent to which the provisions in the exposure draft of the Natural and Built Environments Bill will support the resource management reform objectives stated in paragraph 10.

16.     The scope of the select committee inquiry is limited to:

·   matters covered by the exposure draft or in the support material

·   collating a list of ideas for making the new system more efficient, more proportionate to the scale and/or risks associated with given activities, more affordable for the end user, and less complex, compared to the current system.

17.     There are many aspects of the final NBA which are not in the exposure draft.  The council will have an opportunity to submit on these matters when the final NBA bill is introduced in early 2022. These matters include:

·   process to develop the National Planning Framework

·   consenting

·   existing use rights

·   allocation of resources, and economic instruments

·   compliance, monitoring and enforcement

·   water conservation orders

·   heritage orders

·   designations

·   subdivision

·   transitional provisions

·   provision for urban design, including urban tree cover

·   the function and roles of Ministers and agencies, as well as regional councils and territorial authorities in the system.

18.     The inquiry is open for public submission with a closing date of 4 August 2021. The select committee will report back to the Minister for the Environment by 18 October 2021.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Summary of the Natural and Built Environments Act exposure draft

19.     The exposure draft contains the proposed clauses relating to:

·   key definitions

·   purpose and related provisions (including the concept of Te Oranga o te Taiao)

·   Te Tiriti o Waitangi

·   environmental limits including their purpose and key requirements

·   environmental outcomes which the National Planning Framework and all Natural and Built Environments Plans must promote

·   implementation principles

·   aspects of the Natural and Built Environments Plans (NBEPs) including what they are to contain and the nature of the committees which are proposed to develop them. These plans would take place at a regional level and replace current land use environmental plans e.g. the Auckland Unitary Plan.

·   aspects of the National Planning Framework (NPF) including what outcomes must be covered by it, and the mechanism for its development. This framework would replace the current system of national direction (e.g. National Policy Statements and National Environmental Standards).

20.     A parliamentary paper is also provided that provides rationale for the clauses in the exposure draft.

Purpose and related provisions

21.     The exposure draft proposes the purpose of the act as to enable:

·   Te Oranga o te Taiao to be upheld, including by protecting and enhancing the natural environment

·   people and communities to use the environment in a way that supports the well-being of present generations without compromising the well-being of future generations.

22.     In this context the concept Te Oranga o te Taiao is suggested to incorporate:

·   the health of the natural environment

·   the intrinsic relationship between iwi and hapū and te taiao

·   the interconnectedness of all parts of the natural environment

·   the essential relationship between the health of the natural environment and its capacity to sustain all life.

23.     According to the support material Te Oranga o te Taiao is intended to be connected to, and supported within, other NBA provisions that provide for the better alignment of the relationship management to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori. This includes environmental outcomes and implementation principles.

24.     Wellbeing is defined to encompass the four well-beings, and the environment is defined to include the natural environment as well as people and communities and the built environment they create.

25.     The proposed purpose largely aligns with the council’s submission to the Panel.

Principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi

26.     The exposure draft’s proposed Principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi clause requires that any person exercising functions or powers under that act must give effect to the principles of te Tiriti o Waitangi. This is stronger than the current RMA equivalent which requires the principles to be taken into account. The proposed clause reflects the council’s submission to the Panel.

27.     The supplementary information states that it is intended that the NBA would contain direction and guidance as to how this clause is to be implemented. This could be an area for feedback in the council’s submission.

Environmental limits

28.     Environmental limits prescribe the minimum standards of the system to protect the ecological integrity of the natural environment and/or human health.

29.     Limits (either in terms of a minimum state or the maximum allowable harm of stress permitted) are required for air; biodiversity, habitats, and ecosystems; coastal waters; estuaries; freshwater; and soil. These limits could be different for different locations or circumstances.

30.     Limits can be either qualitative or quantitative and will be either prescribed through the NPF or through NBEPs.

31.     The exposure draft’s clauses relating to environmental limits largely align with council’s submission in the matters it covered and the requirement for a precautionary approach.

Environmental Outcomes

32.     These outcomes must be promoted by the National Planning Framework and all Natural and Built Environments Plans.

33.     Given their importance in the new system the proposed outcomes in the draft exposure draft will be a key focus for council’s submission.

34.     They cover outcomes related to:

·   the quality of air, freshwater, coastal waters, estuaries, and soils

·   ecological integrity

·   outstanding natural features and landscapes

·   areas of significant indigenous vegetation and significant habitats of indigenous fauna

·   access and character of the coast, lakes, rivers, wetlands, and their margins

·   the relationship of iwi and hapū, and their tikanga and traditions, with their ancestral lands, water, sites, wāhi tapu, and other taonga

·   the mana and mauri of the natural environment

·   cultural heritage, including cultural landscapes

·   protected customary rights

·   greenhouse gas emissions

·   urban areas

·   housing supply

·   rural areas

·   infrastructure services

·   natural hazards and climate change.

35.     These outcomes go further than the current RMA’s equivalent (matters of national importance and other matters) particularly by including the mana and mauri of the natural environment, cultural landscapes, climate change mitigation, urban areas and housing supply, rural areas, and provision of infrastructure services.

Key clauses for the National Planning Framework

36.     The NPF will include and replace existing forms of national direction and combine their existing functions and powers. This approach was supported by council’s submission to the Panel.

37.     Its purpose will be to provide integrated direction on matters of national significance or where consistency nationally or across parts of New Zealand would be desirable.

38.     The NPF will:

·   prescribe environmental limits or enable plans to do so

·   set out provisions directing the following outcomes: the quality of air, freshwater, coastal waters, estuaries, and soils; ecological integrity; outstanding natural features and landscapes; areas of significant indigenous vegetation and significant habitats of indigenous fauna; greenhouse gas emissions; urban areas; housing supply; rural areas; infrastructure services; and natural hazards and climate change

·   contain provisions to help resolve conflicts relating to the environment, including conflicts between or among any of the environmental outcomes.

39.     In doing the above it must include strategic goals such as the vision, direction, and priorities for the integrated management of the environment within the environmental limits; and how the well-being of present and future generations is to be provided for within the relevant environmental limits.

40.     The NPF may also include provisions on any other matter that accords with the purpose of the national planning framework.

41.     The process for the preparation of the NPF is not provided in the exposure draft. The supporting material suggests that this could take several forms such as a board of inquiry or independent panel with a simplified process for less significant matters, or there could be a standing independent body to maintain consistency and integration.

42.     The support material states that the eventual process is intended to provide for:

·   a role for iwi, hapū and Māori that gives effect to the principles of Te Tiriti

·   effective and proportionate public consultation

·   appropriate evidence and technical expertise including mātauranga Māori, and independent advice

·   opportunities for early engagement with decision-makers, including local government

·   robust evaluation and analysis

·   consideration of the precautionary approach, integrated management, cumulative effects, and the purpose of the Act.

43.     The support material acknowledges the need for further work to determine the role for iwi, hapū and Māori in the process and substance of the NPF.

Implementation principles

44.     The exposure draft contains placeholder language on the principles that people who are in involved in the system must follow.

45.     The current principles cover integrated management of the environment; kawa, kaitiakitanga, and mātauranga Māori; public participation; participation by iwi and hapū; authority and responsibility of each iwi and hapū to protect and sustain the health and well-being of te taiao; cumulative effects; and the precautionary approach.

Key clauses for the Natural and Built Environments Plans

46.     Cabinet agreed that regulatory planning be conducted at a regional level through a single plan. This would see around 14 plans created nationally and would be similar in nature to the current Auckland Unitary Plan (AUP) which combines the functions of regional and district plans. Plans would be subject to an independent hearings panel (IHP) process in line with the development of the AUP.

47.     The exposure draft proposes that the purpose of plans would be to further the purpose of the Act by providing a framework for the integrated management of the environment in the region that the plan relates to.

48.     The supplementary information makes it clear that the government is still considering the best approach to plan preparation and decision making. In the absence of a clear policy preference the exposure draft adopts the Panel’s approach of permanent bodies made up of one member from each local authority of the region, a number of mana whenua representatives, and one representative of the Minister of Conservation reflecting their interests in relation to the Coastal Marine Area.

49.     The supplementary material sets out the following matters relating to committees where they are seeking specific feedback:

·   size and scope of the committees (e.g. whether all councils are represented, whether the size of the committee varies by region, proportionality of membership between central and local government and mana whenua, and whether there is an optimal size for efficiency)

·   local authority membership (e.g. whether there are elected members, experts or officials, and the selection method)

·   mana whenua membership (e.g. selection method and the approach to representation)

·   number of local authorities and mana whenua members (e.g. whether the same in all regions for all issues)

·   how the planning committee secretariat will be funded (noting the Panel’s recommended approach was for local authorities to fund the secretariat)

·   legal status of planning committees.

50.     The exposure draft is silent on who would chair these planning committees and method of appointment. The panel recommended that these committees would be fully autonomous meaning their decisions would not be subject to further approval from local authorities, with local authorities able to submit on the plans to the IHP.

51.     There may be some matters for which local authorities would also carry out local planning for, although the exposure draft is not clear on these matters or the process for doing this.

System efficiencies

52.     The support material includes a list of examples of how the system could be more efficient and less complex. The select committee is invited to add to this list and council could provide suggestions as part of its submission.

Further material

53.     The exposure draft and support material can be found here: https://environment.govt.nz/publications/natural-and-built-environments-bill-parliamentary-paper-on-the-exposure-draft/

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

55.     The proposed decisions this report seeks are procedural and do not have any direct impacts on climate change.

56.     The Panel’s report paper acknowledges addressing climate change challenges as being a key consideration in future-proofing our resource management system.

57.     A reformed resource management system is expected to significantly impact Auckland Council’s roles and responsibilities as Auckland prepares for and is more adapted to the effects of climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

58.     Relevant council departments and Council Controlled Organisations have been identified and contributions will be sought from them in developing the council group’s response to the NBA exposure draft.

59.     The potential impacts on the council group and activities will become clearer once the NBA, SPA, and CAA are introduced in bill form.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

60.     Local board views are being sought during the development of council’s submission and will be reported back to the Planning Committee. Local board resolutions will be included as part of council’s submission.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

61.     The decisions this report seeks do not directly impact on Māori, however both the resource management system review and specific issues likely to be covered in the NBA exposure draft are likely to be of significant interest to and have a significant impact on Māori. 

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

62.     The submission can be developed within existing budget provision and as part of business-as-usual central government advocacy activity.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

63.     No risks related to the local board input into this process have been identified.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

64.     Local board resolutions on the NBA exposure draft will be included in the Auckland Council submission on this matter.

65.     The NBA exposure draft is likely to be introduced in early July with an expected submission period of four weeks.

66.     The SPA and NBA are likely to be introduced in December 2021 or early in 2022 and their progress through the house is likely to take around a year. This will include the usual opportunity to submit to the select committee.

67.     The CAA will be introduced at some point in the first half of 2022 and will also involve a select committee submission opportunity.

Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board formal feedback on the Ministry of Transport Review of the public transport operating model (PTOM)

File No.: CP2021/10636

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       The purpose of the report is to note the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board’s formal feedback on the Ministry of Transport’s Review of the public transport operating model (PTOM) discussion paper.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board has provided feedback to the Ministry of Transport Review of the public transport operating model (PTOM). Auckland Council did not seek to provide regional feedback to which the local board could append its own views therefore the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board provided its own feedback directly.

3.       The government submission period along with the subsequent establishment that there was not to be an Auckland Council regional report seeking local board views circulated meant that it was not possible to get board for approval of the feedback at a business meeting before the submission due date of 18th of June 2021.

4.       The board’s formal feedback is included with this agenda report as Attachment A.

5.       Where tight deadlines for formal feedback by the board on policy matters prevent approval at a business meeting of the board, the Chair and Deputy Chair are empowered to approve feedback submission via the following resolution (12 May 2020). In this instance given there was no Auckland Council regional report to inform feedback was provided directly to the Ministry of Transport as Auckland Council feedback specific to the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board.

14

Local board feedback for inclusion in Auckland Council submissions

 

Resolution number GBI/2020/1

MOVED by Chairperson I Fordham, seconded by Deputy Chairperson L Coles: 

That the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board:

a)      delegate authority to the chair and deputy chair to approve and submit the local board’s input into Auckland Council submissions on formal consultation from government departments, parliament, select committees and other councils.

b)      note that the local board can continue to use its urgent decision process to approve and submit the local board’s input into Auckland Council submissions on formal consultation from government departments, parliament, select committees and other councils, if the chair and deputy chair choose not to exercise the delegation sought in recommendation (a).

c)      note that this delegation will only be exercised where the timeframes do not allow for local board input to be considered and approved at a local board meeting.

d)      note all local input approved and submitted for inclusion in an Auckland Council submission is to be included on the next local board meeting agenda for the public record.

 

CARRIED

6.       The Ministry of Transport are reviewing PTOM to understand how it is working and whether it can be improved. https://www.transport.govt.nz/area-of-interest/public-transport/public-transport-operating-model/

7.       An opportunity was provided for stakeholders and public to give feedback in May/June 2021 do a discussion paper.

8.       The Ministry were seeking feedback from the sector and the public to ensure they had identified the relevant issues and opportunities as part of their review, and to inform how they may design any changes to PTOM.

9.       The discussion paper sought feedback from the sector and wider public on:

·        Proposed new objectives for PTOM

·        How PTOM could better support decarbonisation of the public transport bus fleet

·        Roles and relationships in the public transport sector (e.g. regional councils, bus operators, road controlling authorities and Waka Kotahi)

·        The labour market in the public transport bus sector

·        Services that operate outside of PTOM (exempt services)

·        On-demand public transport services.

10.     The legislation that established PTOM is known as enabling legislation, which means that it sets the overall framework for the planning and procurement of public transport services. Under PTOM regional councils and Auckland Transport (AT) are responsible for providing public transport services and make their own decisions about how those services operate.

11.     Given the comparative large land area and low population of the Aotea / Great Barrier local board area there is currently no provision of public transport services on the island.

12.     The local board have been active advocates for the development and operation of a public transport service appropriate for the island. The aspect of exploring and enabling “On-demand public transport services” to be part of PTOM was the central aspect of the local boards feedback to the Ministry of Transport.

Perimeter fencing

Wild pigs have been causing significant turf damage on the airfield, presenting a hazard to aircraft traffic and movement.

Aotea Contractors are installing 3,500m perimeter fencing around the airfield to prevent animals from entering the operational areas of the aerodrome.

Materials are being sourced from Future Post which manufactures environmentally friendly fence posts from domestic and commercial soft plastic waste.

Works expected to be complete during July.

Carpark water bore protection

Aotea Contractors to install an Armco barrier in the corner of the carpark to provide added protection for the bore head.

Works to be completed in July.

Bollards

New safety bollards installed in the carpark outside the terminal building to protect public and baggage from moving vehicles.

Bollards are removable to allow emergency vehicle access on to the airfield.

Parking Enforcement

Fortnightly visits are still seeing significant occupancy levels around the airfield.

Regular visits were meant to slow down due to winter but will need to be maintained until we see changes in compliance levels.

Wharves

Fire extinguishers have been swapped out at all the wharves.

Okupu Wharf has been painted.

The ramp nosing on the vehicle ferry ramp at Whangaparapara has taken some damage from the ferry ramp, so has been replaced with a more robust version with better recessed bolts.

Project

Update

Resolution number GBI/2021/31 requesting that Auckland Transport use of up to $47,000 from their Local Board Transport Capital Fund for remediation of interim fish passage measures.

Offer of Service from a consultant has been received and accepted. This is currently in the approval process including the procurement of the contractor. One of the requirements for this Offer is to have ACC Healthy Waters Subject Matter Expert, the contractor who will be engaged to fabricate the fish ladder, and the local Contractor attend a site meeting before work commences. It is anticipated that this will occur in early to mid-August 2021.

Resolution number GBI/2018/73 - requesting Auckland Transport to investigate a rough order of cost for traffic calmers at Claris settlement.

Road Safety Audit has been completed by an independent consultant. A departure from the standards will need to be obtained (AT standards now requires street lighting for raised tables) before they can be installed. This will be progressed only if the board decides to continue with this project.

Rough Order Costs are as follows:

·    Claris Café - $120k

·    Outside Service Centre - $120k

·    Burger Shack - $120k

Each of the three sites above consists of three raised speed tables, signage, road marking.

The current board has passed resolution GBI/2019/137 requesting that Auckland Transport create a rough order of cost for the replacement of the two culverts (identified by Environmental Services as numbers 66 & 68) under Aotea Road with oversized box culverts.

The rough order of cost for this has been estimated at $570k.

This project is on hold until a source of funding can be identified.
