Progress update: Implementing the recommendations from the Community Occupancy Guidelines review

 

Resolution number PAC/2021/65

MOVED by Cr C Casey, seconded by Cr A Filipaina:  

That the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee:

a)      note that progress to implement the changes from the review of the Community Occupancy Guidelines 2012 has been slower than expected due to longer lead time, legal constraints and resourcing issues

b)      agree that staff prioritise implementation of the 2018 review changes over the next 12 to 18 months. Staff will report back on progress in 18 months when it is expected that:

i)           the new templates and processes are fully implemented to all new leases (approximately 200 of them each year)

ii)         the new leases are granted and managed in a way that meets best practice guidelines:  the benefits expected to be delivered from the new leases are clearly stated; they are measured, tracked and reported over time

iii)        the implementation of new templates and processes has been piloted on a small sample of renewals to better understand whether and how they can be rolled out more broadly than to new leases

iv)         a short report will be produced to highlight the lessons learnt from this next phase of work and any further recommendations to improve the leasing cycle.

Indicative Business Case: maintaining aquatic provision in Albert-Eden

 

A PowerPoint presentation was given.  A copy has been placed on the official minutes and is available on the Auckland Council website as a minutes attachment.

 

Resolution number PAC/2021/66

MOVED by Cr A Filipaina, seconded by Deputy Mayor BC Cashmore:  

That the Parks, Arts, Community and Events Committee:

a)      receive the indicative business case for aquatic provision in Albert-Eden, which found that:

i)       there is a need for on-going aquatic services provision in the Albert-Eden Local Board area

ii)      Mt Albert Aquatic Centre can operate long-term as it is in satisfactory condition and operates under a 50-year license to occupy to 2048, plus one right of renewal for 25 years to 2073, and then a further final option to renew for a term to be agreed by the parties

iii)     there is a weak economic case for investment to expand Mt Albert Aquatic Centre or to build a new facility in the Albert-Eden Local Board area

iv)     Mt Albert Aquatic Centre is near, or at capacity

v)      the facility’s ability to meet future demand for aquatic services in the medium-term is highly dependent on the planned aquatic facility in the Whau Local Board area

vi)     capacity is anticipated to become an issue again at Mt Albert Aquatic Centre from 2033 as population growth drives demand.

b)      agree that no further investigation of investment options to maintain aquatic services in the Albert-Eden Local Board area as part of a detailed business case be undertaken

c)      agree maintaining the delivery of aquatic services in the Albert-Eden Local Board area at Mt Albert Aquatic Centre (Option 0: Status quo)

d)      agree that no investment in expanding Mt Albert Aquatic Centre or in building a new aquatic facility is required to maintain aquatic services in the Albert-Eden Local Board area until further work as per resolution e) below

e)      agree adding the following action to the Community Facilities Network Plan (CFNP) Action Plan: “Investigate community needs for aquatic services in the Albert-Eden Local Board area” for delivery in 2029/30 or earlier if the planned aquatic centre in the Whau Local Board area is delayed.

f)       note that staff continue to work with the Pool Trust to address operational matters around shared carparking and access at Mt Albert Aquatic Centre.
