Notice of Motion - Contractor Performance in Relation to Volunteer Groups in Kaipātiki

 

Resolution number KT/2021/166

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

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          note that contractor relations with ecological restoration volunteers appear to have fallen short of contract specifications, and that this is counterproductive to both the Kaipātiki Local Board’s Pest-Free Kaipātiki strategy, the spending of NETR funds and Auckland Council’s stated intentions to protect our natural environment.

b)         request that a review of SMART procurement outcomes for Kaipātiki be initiated promptly with a particular focus on the possible inclusion of specific KPIs for working with volunteer groups.

c)          request information as to whether any contract variations have been made to enable community empowerment as noted in section 41 and 54 of a report received by the Kaipātiki Local Board March 15th 2017 (refer Attachment B of agenda report).

d)         request information as to how contractor performance against Section 1.16 of Auckland Council Full Facilities Contract Specifications (refer Attachment A of agenda report) detailing the way contractors shall work with volunteer groups has been assessed, especially during the recent contract extension review process.

e)          request advice as to whether Section 1.3 ‘Relationship Management Plan’ of the Full Facilities Contract Specifications was intended to include a requirement on Suppliers to develop communications plans with volunteer groups and, if so, how this has been assessed, especially during the recent contract extension review process.

f)           request that this resolution be circulated to all Auckland councillors and local board members.

Notice of Motion - Unlock Northcote topic lead

 

MOVED by Member A Shaw, seconded by Member A Hartley:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          revoke resolution numbers KT/2020/222 and KT/2022/223 passed at the 9 December 2020 business meeting which established the appointment to and purpose of the Unlock Northcote topic lead role, for the following reasons:

i)           that the project has many stakeholder interest groups locally, across Council and with Central Government;

ii)          that the liaison role is incompatible with the size and complexity of the Unlock Northcote project; and

iii)         that the governance and oversight of the project is better achieved without the liaison role.

b)          request, in light of the revocation of resolution numbers KT/2020/222 and KT/2022/223, that all matters relating to the Unlock Northcote project (in particular those relating to the community hub facility or any other matters that will require a local board decision or input) be brought to workshops and/or briefings that involve all local board members, in order to:

i)           ensure that all members have the opportunity to hear information and advice directly from staff and at the same time;

ii)          enable members (particularly new or first term members) to build their understanding of a complex project through asking questions and getting responses without the ‘influence’ of the views of other more tenured members; and

iii)         make sure that all members are informed sufficiently and can respond effectively if/when they are asked questions about the project by key stakeholders and/or members of the public.

Brief report to approve the location of the new multi-purpose community hub building in Northcote Town Centre

 

Gary Jackson, Portfolio Specialist - Eke Panuku, Kate Cumberpatch, Priority Location Director – Eke Panuku and Kimberly Rees, Service and Asset Planning Specialist, were in attendance via Skype for Business to address the board on this item.

 

 

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

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          approve the location of the new Northcote multi-purpose community hub building to be a refurbishment and extension (to the north-west) of the current Mitchell Building as per Option 1

b)          express an expectation that the building size be a minimum of 2000-2250m2, as this is the indicative size arising from the community needs assessment research adopted by the local board (resolution number KT/2021/149).

c)          express concern that the secured budget of $17.3m for the community hub and fit-out is based on an area of 1,500m2, as a community hub building of that size is unlikely to be sufficient for Northcote in the face of significant population growth, and ask that Eke Panuku and the Governing Body seriously consider an increase in funding to ensure at least a minimum provision of 2000-2250m2 floor space for the community hub (the indicative size arising from the community needs assessment research adopted by the local board KT/2021/149). We note that based on the projected population of 22,546 in the Northcote catchment, the library alone should be approximately 922.5m2 (based on 41m2/1000 people as indicated in the Community Facilities Network Plan), leaving just over 500m2 for various service providers, toilet, reception facilities, etc, which is not adequate.

d)          note that location Option 1 provides an opportunity cost of approximately $4.8 million over location Option 2 (Lake Road); allows for the additional development of c100 homes; and ensures the retention of the Mitchell Building. Also, based on current estimates, the cost per m2 of refurbishing and/or redesigning the Mitchell Building is half the estimated cost per m2 of a new stand-alone building as per Option 2.

e)          note the approximate timeframe for location Option 1 in the below table:

f)           require that the location of the community hub building extension has minimal impact on Cadness Reserve, while creating a viewshaft connection between the town centre and the reserve.

g)          require dedicated parking to service the community hub building, such as a loading zone for library supplies, senior parking, disabled parking, parent parking and bicycle parking.

h)          request that there is a visual connection in the paving treatment between Pearn Place and the community hub building, and that this may require that the Ernie Mays Street bus stops are not located immediately outside the entrance to the community hub building.

i)            note the local board’s resolution KT/2021/149 from 15 September 2021 regarding further requirements for the community hub building.

j)            request that the Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson work with staff to establish a facilitated working group to determine design brief requirements for the community hub building prior to the design brief being approved by the local board, to be comprised of all Kaipātiki Local Board members, applicable council and Eke Panuku staff, and representatives of identifed community hub building stakeholders.

k)          request a workshop on the design of Cadness Reserve (including a full basketball court and play equipment), noting that the Northcote Redevelopment project has a budget of $1.8million for the renewal and enhancement of Cadness Reserve, and that the local board has final approval on the design.

l)            request detail on any renewal funding identifed/tagged in future years for the Norman King Building, Mitchell Building annex or the playground in front of the Mitchell Building, and whether any such funding is available to re-allocate to other projects.

m)        note that the local board has decision-making responsibility for the design (including spatial requirements and service provision, build, and fit-out) of the new community facility within the budget parameter agreed with the Governing Body.

n)          request that this resolution is circulated to the members of the governing body.

Local board views on private plan change 62 for the land at 119, 121 and 129 Onewa Road and at 1, 3, 5 and 7 Gladstone Road, Northcote

 

Todd Elder, Policy Planner, was in attendance via Skype for Business to address the board on this item.

 

 

Resolution number KT/2021/175

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Member M Kenrick:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          oppose private plan change 62 lodged by Goldstar Corporation Limited to rezone the land at 119, 121 and 129 Onewa Road and at 1, 3, 5 and 7 Gladstone Road, Northcote, and provide the following feedback:

i)           we endorse the majority view of submitters in opposing the plan change, and note that of the 29 public submissions that were received, a total of 7 submissions were in support and 22 submission were in opposition (including from Northcote College and Auckland Transport).

ii)         note that while the actual difference in maximum height between the existing Business Light Industry Zone and the proposed Business Mixed Use Zone is only 1m, the effective potential height of any development is much greater in the Business Mixed Use Zone as the ability to include residential dwellings in developments increases the likelihood of utilising the maximum height.

iii)        the increase in shadowing to neighbouring properties on Gladstone Road, Onewa Road, Seaview Avenue and Fairfax Avenue is much greater under the maximum height of the proposed Business Mixed Use Zone than the shadows cast by the existing buildings.

iv)        we agree with the concern expressed in the submission from Northcote College regarding the comment in the Assessment of Effects and Section 32 RMA Analysis from Lovett Planning, that the “Northcote College School grounds…provide an excellent adjacent stormwater soakage area” as the school sportsfield has received significant investment and cannot cope with any increase in soakage. The proposed plan change and any subsequent development should explicitly provide for sufficient on-site stormwater storage capacity to prevent reliance on neighbouring properties.

v)         note that while there are similar expectations of high-traffic generating activity under the current Business Light Industry Zone and the proposed Business Mixed Use Zone, the effective amount of traffic is likely to be higher under the proposed Business Mixed Use Zone as it includes the ability to include residential dwellings in developments.

vi)        Gladstone Road is a busy side road from Onewa Road, that not only services local residents and businesses, but also acts as a drop-off/pick-up location for Northcote College and Tui’s Nest early learning centre. It is also a narrow road with carparking often at full capacity on both sides, due to people parking and catching public transport, or overflow parking from St Mary’s Catholic Church. The proposed plan change and any subsequent redevelopment is likely to lead to an increase in traffic flow and safety risks on Gladstone Road.

vii)      Onewa Road is a busy thoroughfare road, and any increase in dwellings or businesses at the site will potentially lead to safety risks due to an increase in traffic turning across Onewa Road into Gladstone Rd, and an increase in west-bound traffic turning across Onewa Road to exit Gladstone Rd, noting a potential increase of up to 350% in traffic entering Gladstone Road and potential increase of up to 303.7% in traffic exiting Gladstone Road if the proposed plan change and any subsequent development proceeds.

viii)     if the proposed plan change proceeds, the local board requests that the Gladstone Road/Onewa Road intersection is upgraded to a controlled (traffic light) intersection with controlled pedestrian crossing (as opposed to a right-turning bay), due to safety concerns for pedestrians (including school students), and for vehicles, due to an increase in vehicle movements entering and exiting Gladstone Road. The increase in traffic is likely to occur irrespective of whether or not there is a large utilisation of public transport from new dwellings at the site, as any new businesses at the site will likely lead to an increase in trip generation into and out of Gladstone Road and the site.

b)         appoint the local board Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson to speak to the local board views at a hearing on private plan change 62.

c)          delegate authority to the chairperson of the Kaipātiki Local Board to make a replacement appointment in the event the local board member appointed in resolution b) is unable to attend the private plan change hearing.

Play space concept design for Nell Fisher Reserve, Birkenhead

c)          request that the mound slide includes a gradual slope to make it easily accessible and safer for younger children.

d)         request the following to be considered as part of a future work programme:

ii)         Jean Sampson Reserve: replacing the bucket swing on the large swing set with a you-and-me swing.
