Ōrākei Local Board Transport Capital Fund Decision

File No.: CP2021/15400

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide an update to the Ōrākei Local Board on its local board transport capital fund (LBTCF) and to recommend allocation of the remaining LBTCF budget.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       This report updates the Ōrākei Local Board that it has $1,974,307 remaining in its LBTCF budget this political term following the June 2021 adoption of the regional land transport plan 2021 – 2031.

3.       It updates members on LBTCF and Community Safety Fund (CSF) projects previously considered by the local board and the current status of those projects.

4.       It outlines a programme of work to allocate $900,000 of the LBTCF.

5.       There are risks that the latest COVID-19 lockdown may mean further budget cuts are necessary in the future, therefore it is expedient that prioritised projects are contracted out as soon as practicable.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Ōrākei Local Board:

a)          allocate the local board transport capital fund in part as follows:

i)           Roberta Reserve Playground Crossing to support Kohimarama School ($260,000)

Horopaki

Context

6.       Auckland Transport (AT) is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways. As set out in the Auckland Transport Local Board Engagement Plan, it reports on a regular basis to local boards. The regular reporting commitment acknowledges the important role that local boards play in the governance of Auckland on behalf of their local communities. 

7.       AT has been reporting in 2021 on projects and operations in the local board areas by way of a monthly central bulletin.  Information on local board consultations and updates on the status of the Community Safety Fund (CSF) and the Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF) have been conveyed by memo or email.

8.       The CSF is a capital budget established by AT for use by local boards to fund local road safety initiatives. The purpose of this fund to allow elected members to address longstanding local road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore not being addressed by the AT work programme.

9.       The LBTCF is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by AT. Local boards can use this fund to deliver minor transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of AT’s work programme. Projects must also be:

·   safe

·   not impede network efficiency

·   be in the road corridor (although projects running through parks can be considered if there is a transport outcome.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Community Safety Fund

10.     In 2019, the Ōrākei Local Board also had access to the Community Safety Fund which enabled local boards to deliver road safety projects for their communities. 

Update on Community Safety Projects

Project

Description

Notes

Waiatarua Reserve/Abbotts Way

Installing a new pedestrian refuge and new footpath to create a link to the Waiatarua Reserve entrance.

To be delivered in FY 2021/2022

Kohimarama School

Upgrade the existing kea crossing on Rawhitiroa Road to a raised zebra crossing

To be delivered in FY 2021/2022

Churchill Park School Safety Improvements

Signage and line markings (red patches) on the rear entrance/exit of the school

Delivered in FY 2020/2021 under the Emergency Budget.

Roberta Reserve Playground Crossing

A crossing to be established near the T intersection of Riddell Road and Roberta Avenue.

Although a worthwhile project it fell outside of the budget in 2019.

Ōrākei  School

A new crossing to be established on Coates Avenue as the school has closed its back gate and the desire line for pedestrians has now altered.

Although a worthwhile project it fell outside of the budget in 2019.

Mt Carmel School

To convert an existing speed hump on Temple Street to a raised crossing.

This was not supported by the new board. This area is now subject to consultation for a 30km speed limit.

Not progressing.

Emergency Budget FY 2020/2021

11.     In FY2020/2021, due to Auckland Council’s Emergency Budget, most of the Community Safety Projects in the region were paused and the Ōrākei Local Board’s LBTCF was reduced to $237,222.

12.     The board resolved to support delivering the improvements for Churchill Park School and to deliver a programme of bus shelters in its area. These projects are now in various stages of delivery.

LBTCF 2021/2022

13.     With new budgets approved in late June 2021, it was confirmed that the Ōrākei Local Board now has $1,974,307 remaining to allocate in this political term.

14.     Previously, the board had reserved funds from the LBTCF for the Meadowbank to Kohimarama connectivity project, safety improvements to The Landing entrance way on Tāmaki Drive and access pathways in Ngahue Reserve and/or Colin Maiden Park.

15.     The Meadowbank to Kohimarama Connectivity project is now fully funded under the Regional Land Transport Plan 2021 – 2031 so no local board funding is necessary to progress this project.

16.     The other projects noted above - safety improvements to The Landing entrance way and access pathways in Ngahue Reserve and/or Colin Maiden Park have been held over until further advice from Community Facilities is received.

17.     At its workshop on 23 September 2021, the Ōrākei Local Board considered a list of new projects.  A number of these projects have now been incorporated into AT’s programme and do not require local board funding while others need further discussion with technical experts. Those that can be more quickly progressed are discussed below.

Proposed Ōrākei Local Board Transport Projects

Project

Description

Notes

Estimated cost

Roberta Reserve Playground Crossing

A crossing to be established near the T intersection of Riddell Road and Roberta Avenue.

Although a worthwhile project it fell outside of the budget in 2019.

$260,000

Ōrākei School

A new crossing to be established on Coates Avenue as the school has closed its back gate and the desire line for pedestrians has now altered.

The school has requested that a drop-off zone on Coates Avenue be considered as part of this project. If feasible, this will be delivered with the main project.

$300,000

Victoria Avenue

Raise the crossing at 274 Victoria Avenue (approximately) to improve safety for school children.

Requested at the Remuera School Cluster meetings.

$260,000

Stonefields Bus Shelter

To be located at stop 1317.

 

A community request

$40,000

St Johns Road Bus Shelter

To be located at approximately 131 St Johns Road, St Johns.

If this is supported, AT will consider the repositioning of stops along St Johns Road to better support the new retirement village.

 

$40,000

TOTAL

$900,000

 

18.     AT’s recommendation is for the local board to support all the above projects so that they can be quickly progressed. 

19.     Funding all the above projects will expend $900,000 of the board’s LBTCF allocation. The remaining amount can be allocated at future LBTCF prioritisation workshops when advice from Community Facilities has been received about improvement projects for The Landing and the area around Ngahue Reserve and Colin Maiden Park. 

20.     AT will also provide technical advice at these LBTCF workshops on safety requirements around crossing facilities for Ōrākei Road, Shore Road and Remuera Road so that the board has quality advice when prioritising projects.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     Auckland Transport engages closely with council on developing strategy, actions and measures to support the outcomes sought by the Auckland Plan 2050, the Auckland Climate Action Plan and council’s priorities.

22.     Auckland Transport’s core role is in providing attractive alternatives to private vehicle travel, reducing the carbon footprint of its own operations and, to the extent feasible, that of the contracted public transport network. These projects all support pedestrian, active modes or support public transport therefore contributing to climate change actions.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     The impact of information in this report is mainly confined to AT.  Where LBTCF projects are being progressed by Auckland Council’s Community Facilities group, engagement on progress has taken place. Any further engagement required with other parts of the Council group will be carried out on an individual project basis.

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

Local impacts and local board views

24.     AT attended a workshop with the Ōrākei Local Board on 23 September 2021.  At this workshop matters discussed included:

  i)             Ōrākei Local Board pilot portal

  ii)            Meadowbank to Kohimarama Connectivity project

  iii)           Allocation of the LBTCF

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

25.     The proposed decision of receiving the report has no impacts or opportunities for Māori. Any engagement with Māori, or consideration of impacts and opportunities, will be carried out on an individual project basis.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

26.     Allocating the local board transport capital fund budget as recommended will use just under half all of the LBTCF outstanding funds in this political term. This will still leave a considerable sum of money for the local board to fund other projects they may wish to support in the future.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

27.     The impact of the latest COVID-19 lockdown has not been factored into these recommendations. There is a risk that budgets might be impacted by budget cuts resulting from the August to October 2021 lockdown.

28.     After the last lockdown in 2020, projects that were already contracted out once the Emergency Budget was resolved continued to be delivered, therefore the local board is advised to allocate funding to its preferred projects as soon as possible.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

29.     Once the local board’s resolutions are finalised, AT will work to contract out the projects as soon as possible.

Ōrākei Local Board Feedback on Te Kete Rukuruku: Māori Renaming of Regional Parks

File No.: CP2021/15254

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek the local board’s feedback on Te Kete Rukuruku: Māori Renaming of Regional Parks tranche one.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.          Te Kete Rukuruku seeks to bring te reo Māori to the whenua, in partnership with iwi, through the formal adoption of contemporary and ancestral Māori names to parks and places.

3.          In August 2021 the Parks, Arts, Community and Events (PACE) committee provided direction to staff to consider eight sites for Māori naming as part of the Te Kete Rukuruku programme tranche one, indicating a preference for dual naming where the English name is retained.

4.          The identified eight regional parks will be subject to investigation into any obligations around the existing names and key stakeholder consultation.

5.          Local board views on the eight regional parks being considered as part of tranche one can be provided to the project team in for the boards feedback to be added to the report for consideration by the PACE committee on 10 November 2021. 

6.          Local boards have the option of also presenting their views and preferences directly to the PACE Committee at their meeting on 10 November 2021.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Ōrākei Local Board:

a)          provide feedback on Te Kete Rukuruku: Māori Naming of Regional Parks tranche one.

b)          appoint a member to present the board’s views at PACE committee on 10 November.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.          Te Kete Rukuruku (TKR) is a te reo Māori culture and identity programme that was established in 2017. It collects and tells the unique Māori stories of Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland. The programme is a partnership between Auckland Council and all 19 mana whenua groups that have interests across the region.

8.          A key outcome of the programme is for te reo Māori to be seen, heard, learned and spoken. The programme contributes to reclaiming Māori identity and strengthening the council’s relationships with mana whenua.

9.          In September 2018, the Environment and Community Committee resolved (ENV/2018/114) to endorse in principle the inclusion of regional parks and cemeteries in the TKR programme.

10.       In 2020/2021 a total of 242 Māori names were adopted for local parks in Whau, Manurewa, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu, Waitākere Ranges, Henderson-Massey and Ōtara-Papatoetoe local board areas. Work continues with mana whenua on naming in other local board areas currently in the TKR programme.

11.       Naming through TKR is a mana whenua led process in which iwi are deemed to hold the mana and the mātauranga to confirm the names that will subsequently be adopted. No consultation on the Māori names is undertaken. Sites should not go forward for naming if there are concerns with this process.

Strategic alignment

6.       The adoption of dual or sole Māori names supports and delivers on multiple council policies and plans including:

·     the Auckland Plan outlining council’s commitment to support te reo to flourish

·     the council’s Long-term Plan and its strategic priority of the promotion of te reo Māori

·     the Māori Language Policy which includes the action of increasing bilingual signage and dual naming.

7.       Regional Parks Management Plan 2010 identifies the reinstatement of traditional Māori names within the following policies:

·     Policy 9.1.1 d) v) – Reinstating traditional names for a park, part of a park or a park feature in accordance with policy 15.1.8.

·     Policy 13.2.5.2 – Give priority to providing on-site interpretation where it increases awareness and understanding of tangata whenua values and their historic connection to the park in accordance with policy 9.1.1

·     Policy 15.1.8 – Reinstate traditional names, or rename a park, part of a park or a park feature in accordance with policy 15.1.4 where the current name has not been formally adopted or a previous decision has overlooked significant occupation history or events associated with the park

·     Policy 15.1.9 Consider dual names for parks, features and facilities.

8.       Seven regional parks currently have english only names and these were identified in a PACE committee workshop on 18 August 2021 as a starting point for the introduction of Māori names:

·     Scandrett

·     Wenderholm

·     Shakespear

·     Long Bay

·     Glenfern Sanctuary

·     Ambury

·     Duder

9.       Additionally, mana whenua seeks to adopt the Māori name for Ōmana Regional Park and have requested this be included in the first tranche of sites for naming.

10.     The PACE committee provided direction at the workshop to consider the above eight sites for Māori naming as part of the TKR programme, indicating a preference for dual naming where the English name is retained.

11.     Te Kete Rukuruku, Auckland Council’s Corporate Library, research and archival teams are currently investigating the details and histories of the existing names. Any commitments by the council in relation to the existing names will be confirmed prior to any sites being selected for Māori naming.

12.     Before recommendations are made to the PACE committee, staff will consult families with historical connections with existing names or parks to obtain their views. Staff will seek specific stakeholder input to identify any potential issues.

13.     Staff intend to report to the PACE committee at its November meeting with advice on parks to be included in tranche one for naming, and to seek a formal resolution inviting mana whenua to begin naming through the TKR process.

Upcoming draft Regional Park Management Plan (RPMP)

14.     A new draft RPMP is intended to be presented to the same PACE Committee meeting on 10 November 2021 for approval to be released for consultation.

15.     The new draft RPMP continues the intention of the 2010 Māori naming policy. It is an opportunity to inform the public about any decision made by the PACE Committee to seek the addition of Māori names to regional parks.

16.     The intention to apply traditional Māori names to regional parks will be communicated to the public through the management plan consultation process.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

17.     The Ōrākei Local Board can submit feedback through resolution to be added to the final report that will be presented at the PACE committee. The scope of feedback is on the eight parks listed for renaming but the board is invited to submit views on other regional parks that it may wish to see included in the programme in regard to renaming.

18.     The Ōrākei Local Board can also provide formal feedback on the eight regional parks being considered for Māori naming as part of tranche one by attending the PACE committee meeting on 10 November 2021 where the decision will be made.

19.     The draft Regional Park Management Plan is intended to go out for public consultation from late November, early December 2021.

Purpose of the report

1.       To enable the Ōrākei Local Board to propose a project or projects for the Regional Streets for People programme.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Regional Streets for People programme is a newly established $3 million fund, to be delivered by Auckland Transport as part of the 10-year climate action package, approved as part of Auckland Council’s long-term plan (10-year budget).

3.       This new programme will aim to deliver trials, tactical urbanism interventions and complementary initiatives across the region, outside of the city centre, to reduce transport emissions through encouraging mode shift to active modes.

4.       Expressions of Interest are invited from local boards in October 2021.

5.       The programme objectives and eligibility criteria are set out in the memo dated 8 September 2021 provided to the local boards (Attachment A) and application form (Attachment B).

6.       To be eligible for the fund, projects must:

·     align with a wider regional strategy, plan, system planning tool (e.g. Future Connect) and/or an existing programme/project

·     fall within the Regional Streets for People project budget limits, which are anticipated to be in the order of:

o  Semi-permanent / temporary infrastructure: $250,000 to $700,000 each, including costs to maintain and monitor the intervention over the duration of the fund

o  Non-infrastructure projects: $50,000 to $300,000 each, including costs to operate the intervention over the duration of the three-year fund (if applicable)

·     have the capability and resources to achieve the proposed project and outcomes

Urgent Decision - Ōrākei Local Board feedback on the Three Waters reform proposal

File No.: CP2021/13254

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To report to the Ōrākei Local Board the urgent decision to provide the Board’s feedback on the Three Waters reform proposal to be included in Auckland Council’s submission.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       For the past four years, the Government has been exploring the challenges and opportunities facing the three waters system to address a complex set of issues relating to the regulation, funding, financing, and provision of drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater services (the three waters), and to deliver better outcomes for New Zealand’s people, environment, and economy.

3.       In July 2020, the Government launched the Three Waters Reform Programme, a three-year programme to reform local government three waters service delivery arrangements in a way that improves health and wellbeing outcomes to benefit all communities in New Zealand. The Government’s objectives from this programme are to:

·   improve the safety, quality, and environmental performance of water services

·   ensure all New Zealanders have access to affordable three waters services

·   move the supply of three waters services to a more financially sustainable footing, and address the affordability and capability challenges that currently exist in the sector

·   improve transparency about, and accountability for, the delivery and costs of three waters services

·   improve the coordination of resources and unlock opportunities to consider New Zealand's water infrastructure needs at a larger scale and alongside wider infrastructure and development needs

·   increase the resilience of three waters service provision to both short and long-term risks and events, particularly climate change and natural hazards

·   provide mechanisms for enabling iwi/Māori rights and interest.

4.       Auckland Council is preparing a response to Three Waters reform proposal to Government and is seeking input from local boards.

5.       The Board was required to submit its feedback no later than 10 September 2021 for consideration to be included in the Auckland Council submission for reporting to the Governing Body at its on 23 September 2021 meeting for approval.

6.       As the closing date of 10 September 2021 was prior to the Board’s 17 September 2021 business meeting and it was not practical to call the full board together and meet requirements of a quorum, it was decided to use the urgent decision-making process to formalise the Board’s feedback as per the attached memo (Attachment A).

7.       A copy of the Board’s feedback on the Three Waters reform proposal is also attached to this report (Attachment B).

a)      note the urgent decision to formally provide the Ōrākei Local Board’s feedback on the Three Waters reform proposal for consideration for inclusion in the draft Auckland Council’s submission approved by the Governing Body at its meeting on 23 September 2021.

Urgent Decision - Ōrākei Local Board Feedback on the Managing our Wetlands Amendment Proposal

File No.: CP2021/15100

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To report to the Ōrākei Local Board the urgent decision to provide the board’s feedback on the Managing our Wetlands amendment proposal to be included in Auckland Council’s submission.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Central government has recently released a discussion document entitled ‘Managing Our Wetlands’ through the Ministry for the Environment.

3.       The proposals seek to amend the definition of a ‘natural wetland’ and associated regulatory consent settings contained in the National Environmental Standards for Freshwater 2020 (NES-Freshwater) and the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020. More specifically:

a)    amend the definition of ‘natural wetland’ to make it clearer and ensure that only the areas intended are captured by the regulations. Government has received feedback that section (c) of the current definition is being applied inconsistently and is capturing areas that were not intended to be captured. They are seeking feedback on:

i.     a proposed revised definition

ii.     whether the change strikes the appropriate balance between wetland protection and land use and development.

b)    better enable restoration activities to be undertaken and enable maintenance and biosecurity activities to be undertaken in, and around natural wetlands. The Government has received feedback that current regulations are restricting the ability of groups to restore and maintain ‘natural wetlands’ and undertake biosecurity activities. This was not the intention of the regulations. They are seeking feedback on:

i.     proposed changes to the regulations that will let groups continue to undertake ‘natural wetland’ restoration and maintenance activities without needing a resource consent

ii.     proposed changes to the regulations that will let biosecurity officers undertake biosecurity activities consistent with a regional or pest management plan.

c)    provide consenting pathways for the activities of quarrying, managed fill, land fill, clean fill, mining (minerals) and urban development operations. Government has received feedback that there are additional activities that require consenting pathways in the regulations.

i.     We are seeking feedback on proposals to provide discretionary consenting pathways for the following operations:

·   quarrying landfill

·   cleanfill and managed fill

·   mining (minerals)

·   urban development.

4.       Auckland Council is preparing a response to the government and input from local boards was sought.

5.       Auckland Council is preparing its feedback to the Government and formal feedback from local boards was required no later than Friday 8 October 2021 to be included in that feedback.

6.       As the closing date of 8 October 2021 was prior to the board’s 21 October 2021 business meeting it was not practical to call the full board together and meet requirements of a quorum. It was decided to use the urgent decision-making process to formalise the board’s feedback as per the attached memo (Attachment B).

Recommendation/s

That the Ōrākei Local Board:

a)      receive the urgent decision to approve the board’s feedback on the Managing Our Wetlands amendment proposal.
