Horopaki

Context

5.      This report considers community leasing matters with respect to the Riverhead Bowling Club Incorporated (the club) occupation of part of the land comprising Riverhead War Memorial Park.

6.      The Rodney Local Board is the allocated authority relating to local, recreation, sport and community facilities, including community leasing matters.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Land, club’s improvements, current and proposed new community lease

7.      Riverhead War Memorial Park is located at 1087 Coatesville-Riverhead Highway and comprises 6.17 hectares which is held in fee simple by Auckland Council as a classified recreation reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977. The classification legally supports the club’s activities.

8.      The lease to the club is contemplated and in conformity with the operative Riverhead War Memorial Park Management Plan as adopted by the former Rodney District Council in October 2008.

9.      The club’s improvements are located on the parcel of land legally described Lot 2 Deposited Plan 55325.The improvements comprise its clubrooms, bowling green, shades, associated out-buildings and fencing, which the club maintains.

10.    The current lease entered into with the former Rodney District Council commenced 1 January 1996 and provided for one term of 19 years, which expired on 31 December 2014. The lease agreement is currently holding over on a month-to-month basis on its existing terms and conditions.

11.    The current lease area includes a portion of the formed carparking spaces on the park. The proposed new lease area does not include the carparking spaces (Attachment C to the agenda report).

Riverhead Bowling Club Incorporated

12.    The club has formally applied to council for a new lease term in accordance with the Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines 2012. For groups that own their improvements, council staff recommend an initial term of 10 years with one right of renewal for 10 years.

13.    The club has been domiciled on Riverhead War Memorial Park since 1962 and is affiliated with Bowls New Zealand and Bowls North Harbour.

14.    The club has a strong committee, it generates adequate income to meet its liabilities and its current membership is approximately 68; comprising active and social members. The club actively encourages new members and operates the participation model of ‘pay-for-play’ for casual players.

15.    The Riverhead Bowling Club was duly incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 on 12 July 1976.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

16.    The designated impact level of the recommended decision on greenhouse gas emissions falls within the “no impact” category because the proposal continues an existing activity and does not introduce new sources of emissions.

17.    While a portion of the lease area is located directly within a flood plain of a one-in-100 years rainstorm event by river or surface flooding, the portion comprises the bowling green and adjacent grass. As such, the land should be adequately raised and drained, respectively, to mitigate any flooding (Attachment D to the agenda report).

18.    The site is not subject to other potential climate change impacts and hazards such as coastal inundation.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

19.    Staff sought feedback from relevant council teams about the proposed new community lease to Riverhead Bowling Club Incorporated. Their feedback is detailed in the table below:

Team

Feedback

Service and Asset Planning Specialist, Service Investment and Programming.

The proposed new lease aligns well with the park’s recreation classification. The community feedback we received when notifying the intention to prepare the Rodney Local Parks Management Plan, didn’t flag any issues for this activity in the park. The management plan will include a lease contemplation for the park, reinforcing any decision the local board makes with this lease. Management plans typically support implementation of plans previously adopted by the local board such as masterplans and concept plans, which I see this lease also aligns with. Multi-use opportunities could also be explored with the club in the community outcomes plan.”

Sport and Recreation Lead, Parks, Sports and Recreation

Bowls participation is experiencing a long term downwards trend. In response, Bowls NZ has adopted a strategy of rationalising the number of bowls facilities. However, the Auckland Region Bowls Facilities Plan (2012) identifies a category of clubs – “single community clubs” – which serve a distinct geographical community and provide important local facilities and activities for their communities. These clubs are not recommended for amalgamation with other bowls clubs but are advised to consider partnership or shared services with other local sports clubs.  Riverhead Bowling Club is identified as a single community club.”

As a single community club, Riverhead Bowling Club should be supported to continue with a new community lease. However, I would consider the following:

-      whether a shorter term was justified

-      monitoring participation numbers

-      whether the club can be encouraged to trial new participation models (e.g.: pay-for-play) to increase revenue

 

Footnote - the club now operates the participation model “pay-for-play”.

20.    The proposed new community lease has no identified impacts on other parts of the council group. The views of council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of the advice in this report.

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

Local impacts and local board views

21.    The recommendations in this report support the Rodney Local Board Plan 2020 outcomes:

a)      Our communities are resilient and have access to what they need (outcome four).

b)      Our local parks and recreation facilities meet the needs of our growing community (outcome five).

22.    The proposed community lease to Riverhead Bowling Club Incorporated was listed on the Rodney Local Board approved 2018/2019 Community Leasing Work Programme as item 2643, resolution number RD/2018/86.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

23.    Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi which are outlined in council’s key strategic planning documents; the Auckland Plan, the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 (Long-term Plan), the Unitary Plan, and local board plans.

24.    At the Mana Whenua Forum held via Skype on 4 March 2021, staff presented to mana whenua representatives in attendance about the proposed new lease to the Riverhead Bowling Club. During the presentation, mana whenua representatives did not voice any concerns with the proposal.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

25.    There is no direct cost to council associated with the grant of a new lease. Riverhead Bowling Club Incorporated will continue to take responsibility for all operational and renewal costs involved with its improvements located on Riverhead War Memorial Park.

26.    The rent stated in the existing lease agreement is $10.00 plus GST per annum (if demanded). As this was a statistical amount for the purposes of the element of consideration within a legal contract, the club was not actually charged the rental.

27.    The new rental amount of $1.00 plus GST per annum accords with the Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines 2012. Similarly, this too will be a statistical amount only. As such there is no material change to any local board budget.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

28.    Should the Rodney Local Board resolve not to grant the club a new lease, this would preclude the club from seeking and obtaining funding necessary for asset renewals. As such, this decision may increase Auckland Council’s maintenance and renewal responsibilities in terms of the land and improvements.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

29.    Subject to the grant of a new community lease, council staff will draft the necessary documentation for signing and sealing by the club and subsequent execution by council.

File No.: CP2021/15176

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

Whakarāpopototanga matua

3.      In February 2021, the Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated formally applied to council for retrospective landowner approval for the construction of its netball storage shed adjacent to its netball court but outside of the club’s lease area. On 13 May 2021, in conjunction with feedback from the Rodney Local Board, council granted the Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated retrospective landowner approval for the works.

5.      The general terms and conditions for a lease for additional premises will align with the current community lease agreement, between Auckland Council and The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated, executed on 25 March 2019. 

6.      This report recommends that the Rodney Local Board grant The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated a lease for additional premises for land on which its newly built netball storage shed is located adjacent to its netball court at Bourne Dean Recreation Reserve.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Land, club’s improvements, current lease and proposed lease for additional premises

9.      Bourne Dean Recreation Reserve is located at 903 Kaipara Flats Road and is approximately half of a kilometre east of Kaipara Flats Township. Bourne Dean Recreation Reserve comprises 7.5137 hectares and consists of two separate parcels of land as follows:

Legal description

Status

Part Lot 7 Parish of Kourawhero comprising 6.0703 hectares

Held by the Crown through the Department of Conservation and vested in Auckland Council, in trust, for recreational purposes. Part Lot 7 is classified as recreation reserve and subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977. Part Lot 7 is also subject to the provisions of the Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara Claims Settlement Act 2013.

Lot 153 Parish of Kourawhero comprising 1.4435 hectares

Held by Auckland Council in fee simple. Lot 153 is classified as recreation reserve and subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977.

 

10.    The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated (the club) improvements comprise; clubrooms, tennis courts, netball court, pavilion, gym/storeroom, storage area and water tank (Attachment B to the agendareport). All the club’s improvements are well maintained and managed.

11.    At its business meeting of 20 September 2018, the Rodney Local Board Parks and Recreation Committee resolved to grant a new community lease to The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated for land at Bourne Dean Recreation Reserve (resolution number RODPC/2018/29).

12.    The lease commenced 1 October 2018 for an initial term of 10 years and provides for one right of renewal for 10 years, with a final expiry of 30 September 2038.

13.    The operative reserve management plan for Bourne Dean Recreation Reserve, adopted by the former Rodney District Council on 28 July 2000, contemplates a lease to the club. The following is stated in the management plan under objective (1), objectives and policies:

·    “To recognise the existing leases with The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Inc.”

14.    A lease variation that increases the area of the premises acts as a surrender and re-grant of the original lease. Due to this common law principle, to enable the club to formally occupy the further area, it is recommended that a lease for additional premises be granted. This agreement records that the additional premises lease is subject to the same terms, conditions and covenants as the original, operative lease.

15.    The club has retrospectively applied to council for a lease for additional premises for land outside of its existing lease area on which its newly constructed netball storage shed is located.

16.    The club’s lease is contemplated and in conformity with the management plan and the land classification legally supports the club’s activities. As such, no prior public notification of the proposed grant of lease for additional premises is necessary.

The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated

17.   The Kaipara Flats Rugby-Football Club Incorporated was incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 on 23 July 1973 and changed its name to The Kaipara Flats Sports Club Incorporated on 22 July 1991.

18.    The club has approximately 500 members and caters for a number of sporting codes including:

·    rugby union

·    cricket

·    netball

·    tennis

·    pétanque

·    wood chopping.

19.    The club’s financial accounts indicate that its funds are sufficient to meet its liabilities and are being managed appropriately.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

20.    Any potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from the build cannot be quantified. All materials used in the construction met current building standards and requirements in accordance with the Building Act 2004. The construction materials comprise; concrete (slab), corrugated iron walls, roof and aluminium joinery. The rainwater collected from the roof gutters is channelled to surrounding trees.

21.    The area proposed for the lease for additional premises is located directly within a flood plain of a one-in-100 years rainstorm event (Attachment C to the agenda report). The storage shed has been built on an area above the adjacent courts. As such, the location should mitigate any affects caused by flooding.

22.    The site is not subject to other potential climate change impacts and hazards such as coastal inundation.

Council group impacts and views

23.    Staff from the land use team sought feedback from other relevant council teams when assessing the club’s application for retrospective landowner approval. An excerpt from feedback received is provided in the table below:

Team

Excerpt from feedback

Sport and Recreation Lead, Parks, Sports and Recreation

“Happy to support this application.”

24.    The proposed new lease for additional premises has no identified impacts on other parts of the council group. The views of council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of the advice in this report.

Local impacts and local board views

25.    Council’s land use team dealt with the club’s application for retrospective landowner approval for the netball storage shed. As part of the process required for landowner approvals, the land use team prepared a memorandum on the matter and circulated it to the local board, requesting its feedback. The local board did not raise any specific concerns at that time.

26.    The recommendations in this report support the Rodney Local Board Plan 2020 outcomes:

a)      Our communities are resilient and have access to what they need (outcome four).

b)      Our local parks and recreation facilities meet the needs of our growing community (outcome five).

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.    Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi which are outlined in council’s key strategic planning documents; the Auckland Plan, the 10-yer Budget 2021-2031 (Long-term Plan), the Unitary Plan, and local board plans.

28.    At the Mana Whenua Forum held via Skype on 4 March 2021, staff presented to mana whenua representatives in attendance about the proposed lease for additional premises to the club. During the presentation, mana whenua representatives did not voice any concerns with the proposal.

29.    The representative for Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara (development arm for Ngāti Whatua o Kaipara) was unable to attend the forum. As such, staff engaged directly, after the forum. The representative’s feedback is as follows: “I acknowledge the need to have space for sports equipment close to the facilities. The Sports Club is a vital part of the Kaipara Flats community and enables participation in sport for all ages. On behalf of Environmental Services Team Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara we do not oppose the placement of the small sports shed on site.”

30.    The club occupies a portion of the Crown owned parcel legally described as Part Lot 7 Parish of Kourawhero which is subject to Section 122 of the of the Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara Claims Settlement Act 2013.

31.    In essence, Section 122 of the Act entitles Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara to a right of first refusal (RFR) on this parcel should the Crown take the land for treaty purposes at any time in the future. The existing lease agreement contains a specific condition to record this. The lease for additional premises will include the same terms and conditions in the existing lease agreement in this regard.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

32.    There is no direct cost to council associated with this proposal. The club will be responsible for all costs associated with ongoing maintenance of the netball storage shed.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

33.    Should the Rodney Local Board resolve not to grant a lease for additional premises to the club, this decision will mean that there is no formal documentation to record council’s and the club’s rights and responsibilities relating to the occupancy (including tenure and maintenance, etc).

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

34.    Subject to the local board grant of a lease for additional premises, staff will work with the club to finalise the required lease agreement documentation.

Grant of lease for additional premises to The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated for land at Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park, 207 Matakana Valley Road, Matakana

File No.: CP2021/15236

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To seek approval to grant a lease for additional premises to The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated for land adjacent to its existing lease area at Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park for the purposes of installing lighting.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated has a community lease for its premises comprising tennis courts and associated fencing at Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park. The lease commenced 10 October 2017 for an initial term of 10 years and provides for one right of renewal for 10 years.

3.      In March 2021, the Matakana Tennis Club formally applied to council for landowner approval to install a set of four lights adjacent to and outside of the club’s lease area. On 3 June 2021, in conjunction with feedback from the Rodney Local Board, council granted the Matakana Tennis Club landowner approval for the works to install the lighting. The landowner approval is subject to certain conditions being satisfied.

4.      One condition of the landowner approval is that the Matakana Tennis Club must obtain a lease for additional premises. The agreement is required to record the Matakana Tennis Club’s rights and responsibilities in terms of the installation, services, operation and ongoing maintenance of the lights.

5.      The general terms and conditions for a lease for additional premises would align with the current community lease agreement between Auckland Council and The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated executed in 2017.

6.      This report recommends that the Rodney Local Board grant The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated a lease for additional premises for land adjacent to its lease area at Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park for the purposes of installing, operating and maintaining lighting.

7.      If the local board resolve to grant a lease for additional premises, staff will work with the Matakana Tennis Club to finalise the required lease agreement documentation.

a)       grant, under Section 54(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977, a lease for additional premises 16 square metres (more or less) to The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated for land adjacent to its lease area at Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park, 207 Matakana Valley Road, legally described as Part of Allotment 3 Parish of Matakana for the purposes of installing, operating and maintaining lighting (Attachment A to the agenda report) subject to the following conditions:

i)         term – five years and 11 months commencing 10 November 2021, with a final expiry of 9 October 2037

ii)         rent – $1.00 plus GST per annum (if demanded)

iii)        all other terms and conditions will accord with the lease agreement between Auckland Council and The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated executed by Auckland Council and dated 10 October 2017.

 

Horopaki

Context

8.      This report considers the leasing issues with respect to The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated’s (the club) occupation of a portion of Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park.

9.      The Rodney Local Board is the allocated authority relating to local, recreation, sport and community facilities, including community leasing matters.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Land, club’s improvements, current and proposed lease for additional premises

10.    Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park is located at 207 Matakana Valley Road, Matakana. The land is legally described as Part Allotment 3 Parish of Matakana, comprising 3.8065 hectares, is held in fee simple by Auckland Council as a classified recreation reserve and is subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977.

11.    At its business meeting of 16 February 2017, the Rodney Local Board resolved to grant a new community lease to the club for land at Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park (resolution number RD/2017/10).

12.    The lease commenced 10 October 2017 for an initial term of 10 years and provides for one right of renewal for 10 years, with a final expiry of 9 October 2037. The club’s improvements within its lease area comprise tennis courts and associated fencing.

13.    The operative reserve management plan for Matakana Diamond Jubilee Park adopted 31 January 1996 contemplates a lease to the club. The following is stated in the Management Plan under objective 1(a), objectives and policies:

·    “To encourage the tennis club to secure a formal lease with council.”

14.    A lease variation that increases the area of the premises acts as a surrender and re-grant of the original lease. Due to this common law principle, to enable the club to formally occupy the further area, it is recommended that a lease for additional premises be granted. This agreement records that the additional premises lease is subject to the same terms, conditions and covenants as the original, operative lease.

15.    The club has formally applied to council for a lease for additional premises for land outside of its existing lease area for the purposes of installing lighting.

16.    The club’s lease is contemplated and in conformity with the management plan and the land classification legally supports the club’s activities. As such, no prior public notification of the proposed grant of lease for additional premises is necessary.

The Matakana Tennis Club Incorporated

17.    Whilst the club has been in existence for over 100 years and historically, enjoyed a presence on the park, prior to 2017 there had never been a formal lease in place. During the two decades prior to 2015, the club was in recess and the courts had fallen into a state of dis‑repair. In 2015, the club rallied and formed a new committee which includes key members from the local Matakana Community Group Incorporated.

18.    The club was incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 on 12 August 2015. Within the club’s constitution, its objects include the following, to:

·    “develop the tennis courts for the benefit of the local community and to promote tennis on a non-exclusive basis to the residents and children of Matakana and its school

·    identify skills, strengths and resources of the Matakana community and help direct these for the maintaining and improvement of the tennis court facilities

·    develop or assist with the development of other facilities at the Tennis Club for the benefit of the Matakana community.”

19.    The tennis courts are used extensively by the local community for tennis, soccer, skating and basketball. Children use their bikes on the courts. The club’s membership is increasing (currently 118 members) and the courts are well used by its members, so much so that at times all courts are fully utilised.

20.    The club’s financial accounts indicate that its funds are sufficient to meet its liabilities and are being managed appropriately.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.    Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Action Plan sets out two core goals:  

·    to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to reach net zero emissions by 2050, and   

·    to prepare the region for the adverse impacts of climate change.   

22.    The area proposed for the lease for additional premises is not located directly within a flood plain of a one-in-100 years rainstorm event (Attachment B to the agenda report).

23.    The site is not subject to other potential climate change impacts and hazards such as coastal inundation.

24.    To improve environmental outcomes and to reduce the impacts of climate change, Leasing Occupancy - Community Outcomes Plans and Proposals advocate that the lease holder:

·    use sustainable waste, energy and water efficiency systems

·    use eco labelled products and services

·    seek opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from lease-related activities.

Council group impacts and views

25.    Staff from Community Facilities - Land Advisory sought feedback from other relevant council teams with regard to the club’s application for landowner approval. An excerpt from the feedback received is provided in the table below:

Team

Excerpts from feedback

Sport and Recreation Lead, Parks, Sports and Recreation

“From a sport and recreation perspective I support the club’s application on the basis that it will increase the capacity of the courts (playing hours) and thereby enable increased participation.”

26.    The proposed new community lease has no identified impacts on other parts of the council group. The views of council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of the advice in this report.

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

Local impacts and local board views

27.    Staff from the Community Facilities – Land Advisory dealt with the club’s application for landowner approval for the installation of the lights. As part of the process required for landowner approvals, the land use team prepared a memorandum on the matter and on 1 June 2021, circulated it to the local board, requesting its feedback. The local board did not raise any specific concerns at that time.

28.    The recommendations in this report support the Rodney Local Board Plan 2020 outcomes:

a)      Our communities are resilient and have access to what they need (outcome four).

b)      Our local parks and recreation facilities meet the needs of our growing community (outcome five).

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

29.    Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi which are outlined in council’s key strategic planning documents; the Auckland Plan, the 10-year Budget 2021-2031 (Long-term Plan), the Unitary Plan, and local board plans.

30.    Staff had planned to present the proposal to and seek feedback from mana whenua representatives at the Mana Whenua Forum (North-West) scheduled for 8 August 2021. The forum was cancelled. Staff subsequently emailed iwi groups directly with relevant information and sought feedback.

31.    The table below contains feedback received:

Feedback

Action taken

Ngāi Tai Ki Tāmaki

 

Ngāi Tai defer to Ngāti Manuhiri for further comment on these community leases.

 

Te Uri o Hau

Thank you for your email but these properties are outside Te Uri o Hau area of interest.

 

Patukirikiri

We will support Ngāti Manuhiri decision to accept or decline this lease.

 

Manuhiri Kaitiaki Charitable Trust

No objections regarding the lease but would there be a way to recommend that those holding the lease actively engage with Mana Whenua with the first step being a cultural induction? We do this for all Department of Conservation permits and concessions and it would be nice for everyone to become more culturally competent/aware.

Leasing staff have responded to the key representative for Manuhiri Kaitiaki Charitable Trust asking for the opportunity to meet and discuss this option with the view to the potential for making lessee engagement with mana whenua a condition within new lease agreements in the future.

 

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

32.    There is no direct cost to council associated with this proposal. The club will be responsible for all costs associated with the consenting, installation, servicing, ongoing maintenance and renewal.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

33.    Should the Rodney Local Board resolve not to grant a lease for additional premises to the club, this decision will mean that there is no formal documentation to record council’s and the club’s rights and responsibilities relating to the occupancy (including tenure and maintenance, etc) of the lighting.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

34.    Subject to the local board grant of a lease for additional premises, staff will work with the club to finalise the required lease agreement documentation.

Context

4.      Auckland Transport (AT) is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways.

5.      This report summarises the Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF) projects in the Rodney Local Board area to enable the local board to prioritise the projects it wishes to progress.

6.      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 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).

Recommendations

8.      Auckland Transport’s recommendation is for the local board to support all of the above projects with the local board allocation for the remainder of this financial year and next totaling $2,361,062.

9.      Funding all the above projects will expend nearly all the local board transport capital fund allocation with any left-over budget being available to deliver other minor projects at the local board’s discretion.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

10.    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.

11.   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 and/or cyclist safety therefore contributing to climate change actions.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

12.    The impact of information in this report is mainly confined to Auckland Transporty.  Where Local Board Transport Capital Fund 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.

13.   Auckland Transport have workshopped with the local board on their preferred projects they wish to progress. At this workshop matters discussed included:

·    priority of local board projects

·    allocation of the remaining Local Board Transport Capital Fund to projects.

14.    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.

Financial implications

15.    Allocating the local board transport capital fund budget as recommended will expend nearly all of the outstanding funds in this political term.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

16.    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-October 2021 lockdown.

17.    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

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

Analysis and advice

Auckland Transport projects and operations in the local board area

5.      All of Auckland Transport (AT) projects were postponed or put on hold with the announcement by the Government on 17 August 2021 to put the entire country into COVID-19 alert level 4 lockdown, which required staff and contractors to stay at home.

6.      COVID-19 alert level 3 was then implemented in the Auckland region on 21 September 2021, however this level still included severe restrictions in place which has impacted on the ability to deliver projects as only essential and safety work is being carried.

7.      It is unlikely that AT will get back to full delivery on various projects until the region has dropped into COVID-19 alert level 2.

8.      AT is intending to provide all local boards with an update on our forward works program before the end of the year.

9.      The table below has a general summary of projects of interest to the local board with their status as at October 2021. 

Projects

 

 

Name

AT area

Update

Matakana Link Road

Major Projects

Although the project has been faced with relatively bad weather recently, the Matakana Link Road project has continued with the construction of the bridge, wetland and stormwater.

 

The road diversion on Matakana Road is working well, allowing works to proceed on the roundabout without being an inconvenience to road users and the construction team.

 

A good summer season allowed for the bulk of the earthworks. The next works on site will be the continuation of the bridge, roundabout and the installation of service trenches.

 

The project is within time and budget.

Huapai Improvements (Huapai Special Housing Area)

 

Major Projects

SH16/Access Road – detailed design is substantially completed, and most consents are in place.  We have closed out the consultation. We have engaged KiwiRail and Chorus to carry out enabling works at SH16/Access Rd intersection, and the work started in August 2021 but was put on hold due to lockdown L4, and work resumed once Auckland moved to L3.  We plan to engage a roading contractor for construction this calendar year, subject to design approvals and procurement.

 

Station Road - consultation was carried out with Huapai District School, Station Road property owners and the community surrounding the Station Road intersection at the end of July 2021. Since then, we have worked internally to develop the designs, and a number of changes have been made based on feedback received.  The detailed design for SH16/Station Rd intersection is underway.  The resource consent application for Station Rd was lodged in August 2021.  Construction is expected in early 2022.

Hill Street intersection Improvement

Major Projects

The pre-implementation phase commenced this financial year.

 

Work is underway to procure a Professional Services contractor to carry out the detailed design.  The Advance Notice to market was published on 4 August 2021followed by the release of the Request for Proposal (RFP) on 13 August.  The RFP closed on 15 September.  Tender evaluation is underway, and we are looking to award the contract by the end of October 2021.

Matakana Road - Melwood Drive to Green Road

Road Safety

AT Safety is currently investigating this corridor for improvements.  This is likely to include improvements to road markings, skid resistance at bends and provide/upgrade guardrails at high-risk locations.

 

The project is currently programmed for FY21/22 installation, subject to funding availability.

Sandspit Road Safety

Road Safety

This involves shape correction, shoulder widening and improving the surfacing at the bend near Hamilton Road intersection.

 

This project is currently under construction and is due to be completed by the end of October 2021.

Dairy Flat Highway area-wide treatment - Pine Valley Road to Green Road

Road Safety

A wide centreline treatment between Pine Valley Road and Green Road to mitigate the risk associated with head-on type issues for this corridor, as part of the overall Dairy Flat Highway safety improvements.

 

Under construction and to be completed by the end of October 2021.

Coatesville-Riverhead and Old Railway Intersection

Road Safety

To provide a safer right-turning facility for vehicles turning from Coatesville-Riverhead H’way into Old Railway Road .

 

Currently reviewing feedback received from the external consultation.  The project is programmed for FY21/22 construction.

Rural Delineation Project – Improved delineation and signage on rural roads.

Road Safety

Under construction, just two sites remain to be done.  This has been delayed due to COVID restrictions and resources from the contractor to maintain appropriate bubbles.

New bus stop and shelter - 963 Matakana Rd, Matakana

AT Metro

Bus Stop 4578 – now constructed.

New bus stop and shelter - 964 Matakana Rd, Matakana

Auckland Transport update on the Rodney Local Board Transport Targeted Rate October 2021

File No.: CP2021/15279

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To provide an update on the programme being delivered by Auckland Transport using the funding from the Rodney Local Board Transport Targeted Rate.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      This report provides general information about the Rodney Local Board Transport Targeted Rate including:

·       a financial summary of the funds collected and expended

·       a summary of expenditure against planned funding allocation

·       an overview of the expenditure proportionately by subdivision

·       a summary of expenditure by project type including expenditure on bus services, park and ride facilities, footpaths and bus stops

·       an update on investigation and construction for projects.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)      receive the Auckland Transport update on the Rodney Local Board Transport Targeted Rate.

Horopaki

Context

3.      In May 2018, the Rodney Local Board recommended that the Governing Body approves a      targeted rate to accelerate investment in transport in the Rodney Local Board area      (Resolution number RD/2018/61). The recommendation was accepted, and the Rodney     Local Board Transport Targeted Rate (RLBTTR) is currently scheduled to run for             10 years          (2018 – 2028).

4.      Auckland Council receives the rates payments and Auckland Transport administers the fund   on behalf of the local board.

5.      The RLBTTR is ring-fenced for transport projects in the Rodney Local Board area that are   not included in the Regional Land Transport Plan 2018-2028. It was established on the      basis that the fund is to support:

·    new bus stops and bus services

·    new park and ride community hub facilities

·    new footpaths.

6.      The targeted rate must be spent on these items and a material change to spending priorities may require further public consultation.

7.      The rate was also established on the principle that each subdivision within the Rodney Local Board area receive a proportion of the benefits of the targeted rate that equate to the proportion of the revenue collected from that subdivision.

8.      The Rodney Local Board monitors the performance of the projects and as the projects develop and firmer cost estimates are prepared it is expected that ongoing decision making is required to ensure that the projects proposed are delivering the best outcomes for the community and that proportionality is maintained between each subdivision.

Risks and mitigations

34.    Auckland Transport providing regular updates on the RLBTTR, and separate decision reports on specific projects, is a mitigation to ensure the local board is fully informed before making any decisions with regards to the fund.

35.    It should be noted that the planned construction costs for the park and ride in the Warkworth subdivision at $5 million meets one hundred per cent of the planned amount for park and rides for all subdivisions as part of the targeted rate.

36.    To conform with the principle that each subdivision within the Rodney Local Board area receives a proportion of the benefits of the targeted rate that equates to the proportion of the revenue collected from that subdivision, AT and the local board will have to actively monitor the spend to ensure that spend is equitably distributed.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

37.    Auckland Transport will provide a further report to the Rodney Local Board at its December business meeting

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

8.      The Auckland Council Road Naming Guidelines (the guidelines) set out the requirements and criteria of the council for proposed road names. These requirements and criteria have been applied in this situation to ensure consistency of road naming across the Auckland region. The guidelines allow that where a new road needs to be named as a result of a subdivision or development, the subdivider/developer shall be given the opportunity of suggesting their preferred new road name/s for the local board’s approval

9.      The guidelines provide for road names to reflect one of the following local themes with the use of Maori names being actively encouraged:

·      a historical, cultural, or ancestral linkage to an area

·      a particular landscape, environmental or biodiversity theme or feature

·      an existing (or introduced) thematic identity in the area.

10.    Theme: The applicant has chosen names that they consider appropriate for the locality.  In this regard the names and their relevance are detailed as below:

Proposed Name

Meaning

Titoki Close     (preferred)

Titoki is a shiny leafed tree native to New Zealand that is found throughout coastal areas and lowland forest.  Titoki will be planted across the site

Taranui Lane  (alternative)    

Taranui is a large sea bird found in shallow coastal waters, inland lakes and rivers throughout New Zealand, including the nearby Whangateau Harbour

 

11.    Assessment: The proposed name options have been assessed by the council’s Subdivision Specialist team to ensure that they meet both the guidelines and the standards in respect of road naming. The technical standards are considered to have been met and duplicate names are not located in close proximity.  It is therefore for the local board to decide upon the suitability of the names within the local context and in accordance with the delegation.

12.    Confirmation: Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) has confirmed that the proposed names are acceptable for use at this location.

13.    Road Type: The road types ‘Close and Lane’ are acceptable road types for the new private road.

14.    Consultation: Mana whenua were consulted in line with the processes and requirements described in the guidelines. Additional commentary is provided in the Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori section that follows

 

 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

15.    The naming of roads has no effect on climate change. Relevant environmental issues have been considered under the provisions of the Resource Management Act 1991 and the associated approved resource consent for the development.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

16.    The decision sought for this report has no identified impacts on other parts of the council group. The views of council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of the report’s advice.

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

Local impacts and local board views

17.    The decision sought for this report does not trigger any significant policy and is not considered to have any immediate local impact beyond those outlined in this report.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

18.    To aid local board decision making, the guidelines include an objective of recognising cultural and ancestral linkages to areas of land through engagement with mana whenua, particularly through the resource consent approval process, and the allocation of road names where appropriate. The guidelines identify the process that enables mana whenua the opportunity to provide feedback on all road naming applications and in this instance, the process has been adhered to.

19.    On 25 August 2021 mana whenua were contacted by council on behalf of Matakana Villas Limited through the Resource Consent Unit’s central facilitation process as set out in the guidelines. Representatives of the following groups with a general interest in the area were contacted:

 

·        Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua

·        Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara

·        Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei

·        Ngāi Tai Ki Tāmaki

·        Te Kawerau ā Maki

·        Ngāti Te Ata Waiohua

·        Ngāti Paoa

·        Ngāti Maru

·        Ngāti Whanaunga

·        Ngāti Manuhiri

·        Ngāti Wai.

20.    By the close of the consultation period, three responses had been received from Ngai Tai ki Tamaki, Te Kawerau a Maki and Ngati Manuhiri Kaitiaki Charitable Trust. Ngai Tai ki Tamaki supported the names and Te Kawerau a Maki deferred to Ngati Manuhuri. In this regard Ngati Manuhiri Kaitiaki Charitable Trust advised that they have been working with the applicant and fully support the proposed names. 

21.    The level of feedback received from mana whenua is often dependent on the scale of the development and its level of significance.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

22.    The road naming process does not raise any financial implications for the council.

23.    Matakana Villas Limited has responsibility for ensuring that appropriate signage will be installed accordingly once approval is obtained for the new private and public road names.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

24.    There are no significant risks to council as road naming is a routine part of the subdivision development process, with consultation being a key part of the process.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

25.    Approved road names are notified to Land Information New Zealand which records them on its New Zealand wide land information database which includes street addresses issued by councils.

Local board views on private plan change 65 for Kaukapakapa - Alpine Road

File No.: CP2021/14894

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To invite local board views on a private plan change by SH16 Limited for Kaukapakapa, Alpine Road.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      Decision-makers on a private plan change to the Auckland Unitary Plan must consider local boards’ views on the plan change, if the relevant local boards choose to provide their views.

3.      SH16 Limited lodged a private plan change for Kaukapakapa, Alpine Road.  The purpose of the plan change is to rezone approximately 28 hectares of Rural Production zoned land to Countryside Living Zone, enabling approximately 11 rural residential lots.

4.      A local board can present local views and preferences when expressed by the whole local board. This report is the mechanism for the local board to resolve and provide its views on private plan change 65.  Staff do not recommend what view the local board should convey

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)      provide local board views on private plan change 65 by SH16 Limited for Kaukapakapa Alpine Road.  

b)      appoint a local board member to speak to the local board views at a hearing on private plan change 65.

c)      delegate authority to the chairperson of Rodney 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.

 

Horopaki

Context

5.      Each local board is responsible for communicating the interests and preferences of people in its area regarding the content of Auckland Council’s strategies, policies, plans, and bylaws. Local boards provide their views on the content of these documents.  Decision-makers must consider local boards’ views when deciding the content of these policy documents (ss15-16 Local Government (Auckland Council) Act 2009).

6.      A private plan change request will be included in the Auckland Unitary Plan if it is approved. Local boards must have the opportunity to provide their views on private plan change requests – when an entity other than council proposes a change to the Auckland Unitary Plan

7.      If the local board chooses to provide its views, the planner includes those views in the hearing report. The hearing report will address issues raised in local board views and submissions by themes. 

8.      If appointed by resolution, local board members may present the local board’s views at the hearing to commissioners, who decide on the private plan change request.

9.      This report provides an overview of the private plan change, and a summary of submissions’ key themes. 

10.    The report does not recommend what the local board should convey, if the local board expresses its views on private plan change 65. The planner must include any local board views verbatim in the evaluation of the private plan change. The planner cannot advise the local board as to what its views should be, and then evaluate those views.

·    to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050 (climate mitigation).

19.    The first of council’s climate goals is relevant because it relates to climate adaptation.  That goal aligns with the legal principle for Recourse Management Act (RMA) decision-makers to have particular regard to the effects of climate change (section 7(i) RMA)

20.    However, the RMA currently precludes the second goal: consideration of climate mitigation.  Consequently, any local board views on climate mitigation will be disregarded by the plan change decision-makers.

21.    RMA amendments coming into force next year will enable climate mitigation to be considered.  These effects cannot be considered now, unless the private plan change proposes rules about particular greenhouse gas discharges.  No rules of that kind are proposed.

Implications for local board views

22.    Table 2 provides guidance as to what the local board may wish to consider in forming any view.

         Table 2 Relevance of climate change to RMA decision-making

In scope for RMA decision-making

Out of scope for RMA decision-making

Climate adaption issues such as:

How should land be allocated to different activities when considering how climate change may affect our environment? How and where should physical resources be constructed?

For example:

·    will sea-level rise cause inundation of land where development is proposed? 

·    is the land in an area susceptible to coastal instability or erosion?

·    will Auckland be less- or better-prepared for flooding, stress on infrastructure, coastal and storm inundation?

·    is ecosystem resilience improved through ecological restoration or reduced by the loss of indigenous habitats?

Climate mitigation issues such as:

·        release of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere

·        increase in tail-pipe emissions from private car use, use of coal fired or natural gas burners

 

Submitters’ views

23.    Submissions outlined the following climate change matters:

-      The lack of consistency with the strategic direction developed by council in the Auckland Plan 2050 for compact urban form, which considered the benefit of a compact urban form on greenhouse gas emissions, amongst other things.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

24.    Healthy Waters and Parks Policy Advisors will review relevant submissions and provide expert input to the hearing report. 

25.    Auckland Transport made submissions.  The key matters raised are:

-      Concern about the lack of consistency with council’s strategic directive in the Auckland Plan 2050 of a compact urban form.

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

Local impacts and local board views

26.    The private plan change request is for Alpine and Maddies Roads, Kaukapakapa, within the Rodney Local Board area. 

27.    This plan change relates to the Rodney Local Board area only.

28.    Factors the local board may wish to consider in formulating its view:

·    interests and preferences of people in local board area

·    well-being of communities within the local board area

·    local board documents, such as local board plan, local board agreement

·    responsibilities and operation of the local board.

29.    This report is the mechanism for obtaining formal local board views. The decision-maker will consider local board views, if provided, when deciding on the private plan change.    

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

30.    If the local board chooses to provide its views on the plan change it includes the opportunity to comment on matters that may be of interest or importance to Māori, well-being of Māori communities or Te Ao Māori (Māori worldview). 7551 residents in the local board area identify as Māori, in 2018 census results.   

31.    SH16 Limited advised council that it consulted with Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara when it prepared the private plan change and provided a Kaitaki Report prepared by Ngā Maunga Whakahii o Kaipara Development Trust as part of their application.

32.    No iwi authorities made a submission on the plan change.

33.    The hearing report will include analysis of Part 2 of the Resource Management Act which requires that all persons exercising RMA functions shall take into account the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi/Te Tiriti o Waitangi.   The hearing report will analyse the impacts of the plan change on freshwater as there is a small permanent stream running through the south of the site as it may be a particular matter of relevance.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

34.    The private plan change could have a financial implication for the local board. Historically there has been significant pressure from the Kaukapakapa community for the Rodney Local Board to provide pedestrian infrastructure from rural residential development to the village centre. This plan change may exacerbate this pressure, as no pedestrian infrastructure is proposed as part of the plan change. 

35.    Costs associated with processing the private plan change request will be recovered from the applicant.  Impacts on infrastructure arising from the private plan change request, including any financing and funding issues will be addressed in the hearing report. 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

36.    There is a risk that the local board will be unable to provide its views and preferences on the plan change, if it doesn’t pass a resolution. This report provides:

·        the mechanism for the Rodney Local Board to express its views and preferences

·        the opportunity for a local board member to speak at a hearing.

37.    If the local board chooses not to pass a resolution at this business meeting, these opportunities are forgone.

38.    The power to provide local board views regarding the content of a private plan change cannot be delegated to individual local board member(s) (Local Government Act 2002, Sch 7, cls 36D)This report enables the whole local board to decide whether to provide its views and, if so, to determine what matters those views should include

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

39.    The planner will include, and report on, any resolution of the local board in the hearing report. The local board member appointed to speak to the local board’s views will be informed of the hearing date and invited to the hearing for that purpose. 

40.    The planner will advise the local board of the decision on the private plan change request by memorandum.

Update on progress on the Pūhoi to Mangawhai trail programme

File No.: CP2021/15322

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To provide an update on progress with the Pūhoi to Mangawhai trail programme.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      The Rodney Local Board has supported the investigation and development of tracks and trails in Rodney East since the completion of the Greenways Plan for Pūhoi to Pakiri.

3.      This report summarises progress on the Pūhoi to Mangawhai trail programme, which is implementing a prioritised series of walking, cycling and bridle trail connections, identified as part of the broader Greenways Plan process.   

4.      The Matakana Coast Trail Trust is leading this project with the support of other key partners including Auckland Council and the NZ Walking Access Commission.

5.      A business case for this walking and cycling trail between Pūhoi and Mangawhai is due to be completed in October 2021, with the support of a grant from Auckland Council’s Sport and Recreation Investment Fund.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Rodney Local Board:

a)      receive this progress update on the Pūhoi to Mangawhai trail programme.

 

Horopaki

Context

6.      In 2017 the Rodney Local Board adopted the Greenways Plan for Pūhoi to Pakiri, (RD/2017/99), for the southeast coast of the Rodney Local Board area.

7.      In October 2017 the NZ Walking Access Commission (NZWAC) and Department of Conservation (DOC) successfully negotiated monetary compensation of around $800,000 from New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) for the severing of the Moir Hill Walkway. This was a result of the motorway realignment north of Pūhoi and the impact on this walkway.

8.      Subsequently, the NZWAC and Auckland Council established a multi-agency partnership model in January 2019 as a pilot for achieving enhanced walking and cycling connectivity in the Rodney East area. The compensation received by NZWAC funded this three-year initiative.

9.      The trail project is a multi-agency, community-led initiative, involving the NZWAC, Rodney Local Board, Matakana Coast Trail Trust (MCTT), mana whenua, Auckland Transport, the Auckland Council Regional Parks Team, NZTA and the Department of Conservation. Implementation of this model is being led by the MCTT and the Programme Manager from Auckland Council’s Regional Service Planning, Investment and Partnerships department

10.    The Programme Manager is supporting the MCTT to take a lead role in the construction, maintenance, marketing and fundraising for the proposed trail network. A current focus is on completing a business plan for the full trail network, preparing to apply for resource consent for Stage 1 of the route, and securing operation and capital funds. The project is a unique, community-led initiative, supported by Auckland Council which recognises the value of local people leading initiatives to improve community wellbeing.

11.    The preferred trail route has a central spine of approximately 100km with branches to townships and key destinations, such as regional parks. The trail will be an ‘easy’ to ‘intermediate’ experience suitable for all abilities and built to Grade 2 and Grade 3 New Zealand Cycle Trail standards. Grade 2 (easy) is off-road and suitable for families. Grade 3 (intermediate) is on-or off-road and may include some hills and routes shared with traffic.

12.    The prioritised staging of construction for the full network (if full funding were to be available, as at November 2021) is summarised as:

Stage

Area

Distance

Cost

Timelines (subject to funding)

1

Warkworth to Matakana to Snells Beach

24km

$12.7M

2021 – June 2023

2

Pūhoi to Warkworth

29km

$6.7M

2022 – 2023

3

Matakana to Mangawhai

66km

$31.8M

2023 +

 

13.    The business case estimates the construction of the full walking and cycling network at $51 million, with 380,000 expected annual users, creating $161 million in social, economic and health benefits per annum, 329 jobs during construction and 235 annual jobs once the full network was established.

14.    The Auckland Council’s Sport and Recreation Investment Fund (SRIF) grant was awarded to the MCTT in October 2020 and has been partly invested in the development of a trail plan, feasibility assessments and business case by consultants WSP Opus, who have experience in completing other successful trail business cases across New Zealand.

15.    In addition to funding the business case, $122,000 of the funding secured from SRIF is being used to progress design and consenting assessments for Stage 1. 

16.    During the previous financial year, Rodney Local Board provided $40,000 to enable MCTT to increase its governance capability in leading the fundraising, design, consenting and construction of this trail. The funding has supported a range of outcomes, including the adoption of risk management policies, capability building for health and safety governance, trail monitoring, and development of a digital strategy and website.

17.    Stage 1 has been prioritised for construction given the availability of legal access and the high cost-benefit-ratio anticipated from connecting townships and businesses in the area. Refer to Attachment A to the agenda report for indicative route.

18.    Critical to the construction of any trail is the establishment of enduring access. Several access initiatives are being managed by council working with the MCTT and other partners. Securing legal access for all stages of the trail involves a mixture of easements over private land, through council-managed parks and esplanade reserves, unformed legal roads, and alongside public roads. Stage 1 access is progressing positively and includes:

·    Private Access Easements: there are five to six easements over private land using the NZ Walking Access easement mechanism. If Auckland Council accepts the Controlling Authority role for access easements over private land, it is likely that the Community Facilities department would fulfil this role and be responsible for managing the walkway.

·    Walking and cycling underpass: Attachment B to the agenda report shows the design and location of the path on Matakana Road

·    Auckland Council Esplanade area: Attachment C to the agenda report shows the path’s location next to the Glen Eden River. 

·    Walking and cycling clip-on bridge: the path would be connected to the existing road bridge along Matakana Road over the Glen Eden River.

19.    To view an online map showing the indicative location of the shared path network:  https://opusnz.maps.arcgis.com/apps/mapviewer/index.html?webmap=2fc7e2feb58e486eaf6bf3d7f43ca1d2   

20.    Since mid-January 2021, the MCTT has made several approaches to both government ministers and local and sitting members of Parliament to outline the opportunities the trail presents and to request investment in the trail. Given the range of social, economic, cultural and environmental benefits this opportunity sits across several central government portfolios.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

21.    There is increasing demand for more walking and cycling infrastructure. This trail has been identified in the Greenways Plan and would connect Puhoi, Warkworth, Matakana and Mangawhai and has a number of benefits.

22.    Providing a regional trail will promote and increase access and public usage of current council assets. Improved walking and cycling facilities will also help make Rodney towns safer. The proposed trail will also help promote tourism in the region, currently affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, by providing significant economic and financial benefits for the region and strengthening social and cultural connections throughout the region.

23.    The development of an extended trail network will connect key destinations in the area, such as Tāwharanui, Wenderholm, Te Muri, Pakiri and Te Arai Regional Parks thereby improving their access using alternative transport modes. The trail will also connect growing townships at Pūhoi, Snells Beach, Warkworth, Matakana, Leigh, and Mangawhai, enabling more daily alternative transport mode trips to be made. 

24.    A key desire is to ensure opportunities to secure access for the trail are not lost as residential and commercial development in this area proceeds.

25.    Once completed, it is anticipated the trail will generate an annual usage of approximately 380,000 people.

26.    The project did not make it into the 2021 Regional Land Transport Plan as Auckland Transport prioritised available funding to support the urban cycleway programme. However, Auckland Transport is considering a request to include the project as part of an “over programming process”, whereby if other projects do not advance or budget is spent as anticipated, Stage 1 of the trail project could receive funding if the Auckland Transport components are investment ready.  

27.    A 2.2km section of trail between Matakana and Point Wells in the Auckland Transport Road corridor is designed and approved and can be constructed subject to construction investment being secured.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

28.    There is increasing demand for more walking and cycling infrastructure to encourage transport options other than private vehicle use. The Climate Change Commission’s advice to the New Zealand Government on its first three emission budgets and direction on its emission reduction plan 2022 – 2025 places more emphasis on shifting the way we travel and supporting the provision of better infrastructure for walking and cycling. 

29.    The designated impact level of the recommended decision on greenhouse gas emissions falls within the “Positive impact on Greenhouse Gas Emissions” as the trail will provide mode switching options from cars to cycling. It will also provide a “Positive Impact on Climate Change Resilience” as the trail provides alternative transport options in the event of a natural disaster. It will also encourage riparian planting along river systems. Construction materials and contractors will primarily be sourced locally within Rodney.   

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

30.    Auckland Council Parks, Sport and Recreation, Community Facilities, and Auckland Transport, support the objectives of the trail project. The COVID-19 Emergency Budget has meant there is limited capital expenditure (CAPEX) funding available. 

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

Local impacts and local board views

31.    Local resident and ratepayer associations representing residents of the small rural towns within the project area, as well as local business associations and the management teams of several secondary and intermediate schools, are highly supportive of the project and have provided letters of support. 

32.    Response from the community has been overwhelmingly supportive towards the concept of the trail. A very small number of landowners living along the trail have voiced concerns relating to increased visitors to the area, reducing their privacy and increasing the potential for anti-social behaviour.

33.    On 29 May 2019, the Rodney Local Board provided a letter of support on behalf of MCTT to Auckland Transport, supporting the project to investigate the use of sections of a number of unformed legal roads in the first stage of trail development in order to help achieve a connected network between Pūhoi and Pakiri.

34.    The goals of this trail project support the Rodney Local Board Plan 2020 outcomes of:

·        Safe, improved transport options connect our communities      

·        Infrastructure and development meet the needs of our growing communities

·        Our communities are resilient and have access to what they need

·        Our local parks and recreation facilities meet the needs of our growing community.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

35.    Regular engagement between iwi, the local community and the council started in February 2019. A number of iwi with interests in the project area were invited to join an informal steering group to support the project. One iwi, Ngāti Manuhiri, agreed to join the group. Ngāti Manuhiri Settlement Trust are the post-Treaty iwi entity mandated to represent Ngāti Manuhiri Tribal interests. The steering group has met on a regular basis with the membership including Auckland Council, Department of Conservation, MCTT, Rodney Local Board, NZTA, NZWAC and Ngāti Manuhiri. The proposed Pūhoi to Mangawhai path is primarily within the recognised rohe of Ngāti Manuhiri.

36.    A small section of trail near Mangawhai in the north is within the rohe of Te Uri o Hau. The boundaries between Te Uri o Hau and Ngāti Manuhiri are reasonably defined and to date Te Uri o Hau have deferred to Ngāti Manuhiri on this project. It is anticipated that Te Uri o Hau will join the steering group soon.

37.    Additional Auckland Council investment by way of a grant from the Māori Outcomes Steering Committee is supporting Ngāti Manuhiri to develop several cultural installations along the trail network.  These installations will amplify local cultural values and stories and ensures the trail foundation is in partnership with mana whenua.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

38.    Securing capital funding for the construction of the trail is still required to implement the programme. MCTT is seeking funding from a range of sources, including Auckland Council, central government, foundations, business, and community sources.

39.    There are likely to be direct costs to the council associated with trail maintenance. Auckland Council’s Regional Parks Unit and Auckland Transport have committed to maintaining trails constructed to the required standard within areas under their management. It is expected that the council’s Community Facilities department will manage sections of the trail over private land by way of access agreements. The project team is working with Community Facilities staff on this on a case-by-case basis. 

40.    Construction and maintenance costs for the stages of the trail are summarised in table 1 below:

Risks and mitigations

41.    The main risks for the programme have been identified as:

·        Lack of funding for trail construction. To mitigate this a dedicated fundraiser has been engaged by MCTT and a fundraising strategy and plan developed.

·        Opposition from residents/landowners on or near the trail route. To mitigate this MCTT are engaging with landowners along Stage 1 of the proposed trail to obtain community feedback and support. Due to physical constraints around where the trail can be located there’s often limitations to re-routing the trail or significantly modifying the design.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

42.    Staff will engage with Auckland Transport to enable the project to be part of an over programming process where underspends can be allocated to Stage 1 of the trail project as it’s shovel ready.

43.    MCTT will continue to engage with Auckland Transport to enable the project to be included in the next Regional Land Transport Plan (RLTP) application process in 18 months’ time.

44.    MCTT are also engaging with central government to secure significant trail construction investment for Stages 1 and 2.

45.    Funding will be sought from various sources for the Point Wells to Matakana Farm Park cycleway link which is shovel-ready (i.e. detailed design, community engagement and consents completed) for construction.

46.    The council’s Programme Manager will provide ongoing updates to the local board as the project progresses.

Rodney Local Board input into Auckland Council’s feedback on the Government’s Three Waters reform proposal.

File No.: CP2021/15129

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To inform the Rodney Local Board that a decision was made and approved under delegation to the chairperson to provide feedback to inform Auckland Council’s feedback on the Government’s Three Waters reform proposal.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      At its meeting of 20 May 2020, the Rodney Local Board resolved (resolution number RD/2020/44) to delegate authority to the chairperson 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.

3.      For the past four years, the Government has been exploring the challenges and opportunities facing the three waters system. They are seeking 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.

4.      The reform proposes a comprehensive, system-wide change that aims to improve the safety, quality, and environmental performance of three water services. The Government is proposing to establish four publicly-owned entities to take responsibility for drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure across New Zealand.

5.      In June, the government released its case for change, the key design features of a new water services system (including the number of entities, boundaries, the regulatory environment and governance arrangements) and information and analysis specific to individual councils.

6.      A memo from council staff was circulated to all local board members on 30 August 2021 (Attachment B to the agenda report), which provided more detail on the Government’s Three Waters Reform proposals.

7.      Feedback from local boards was required by Friday 10 September 2021 to inform Auckland Council’s feedback to the Government.

8.      The local board’s Three Water Reform feedback is formal, being signed off under delegation, but is being reported to the 20 October 2021 business meeting of the Rodney Local Board to ensure transparent decision-making.

Purpose of the report

1.      To inform the Rodney Local Board that a decision was made and approved under delegation to the chairperson to provide feedback to inform Auckland Council’s feedback on the Managing Our Wetlands amendment proposal.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      At its meeting of 20 May 2020, the Rodney Local Board resolved (resolution number RD/2020/44) to delegate authority to the chairperson 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.

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

4.      The government is seeking feedback on the following points:

a)       Definition of ‘natural wetland’.

b)       Better provision for restoration, maintenance and biosecurity activities.

c)        Consenting pathway for quarrying.

d)       Consenting pathway for landfills, cleanfills and managed fills.

e)       Consenting pathway for mining (minerals).

f)        Consenting pathway for plan-enabled development.

5.      The discussion document containing these proposals is set out here: https://environment.govt.nz/publications/managing-our-wetlands-discussion-document/, which was sent to all local board members on 27 September  2021.

6.      Feedback from local boards was required by Friday 8 October 2021 to inform Auckland Council’s feedback to the Government.

7.      The local board’s Managing Our Wetlands feedback is formal, being signed off under delegation, but is being reported to the 20 October 2021 business meeting of the Rodney Local Board to ensure transparent decision-making.
