That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)           receive the December report from Auckland Transport

·        the number of motor vehicle accidents, deaths and serious injuries at Clendon Roundabout over the last five years

This aligns with the Manurewa-Takanini-Papakura Integrated Area Plan 2018 and with Nga Ara o Manurewa / Manurewa Local Paths Plan 2019, and will strengthen links between Manurewa town centre, Nathan Homestead and the Botanic Gardens.

Auckland Transport - proposed speed limit changes (Tranche 2A)

 

Resolution number MR/2021/214

MOVED by Chairperson J Allan, seconded by Member K Penney:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      provide the following feedback on Tranche 2A of Auckland Transport’s proposed speed limit changes:

i)             the board has consistently championed efforts to calm traffic and reduce rates of death and serious injury due to motor vehicles (DSI) on Manurewa roads. We are in full support of the Vision Zero vision that that there will be no deaths or serious injuries on our transport system by 2050 and support Auckland Transport’s continued investment in road safety, including local board led road safety projects, to achieve this goal

ii)           Outcome Four of the Manurewa Local Board Plan 2020, ‘Our safe and accessible network provides transport options to meet community needs,’ includes the key initiative ‘Continue working with AT to improve road safety and slow traffic throughout Manurewa, in line with Vision Zero principles’

iii)         the board has partnered with Auckland Transport on road safety projects, including speed calming area treatments and raised pedestrian crossings around schools. These projects have had a positive effect and DSI rates in Manurewa have reduced. It is important that we continue working in partnership with Auckland Transport if we are to achieve the Vision Zero goal

iv)         the board notes that roads whose speed limits were reduced as part of Tranche One of Auckland Transport’s Safe Speeds Programme have experienced a 67 per cent reduction in fatalities, 19 per cent reduction in all injury crashes, and a minor reduction in serious injuries

v)           the board supports reducing the speed limit from 50 km/h to 30 km/h on the following proposed roads in the Manurewa Local Board area as set out in Attachment A of the report

vi)         the board supports lowering speed limits around all schools and encourages Auckland Transport to ensure that appropriate signage and road markings are delivered as soon as this is implemented

vii)        the board supports the installation of raised pedestrian crossings around schools to ensure the safety of children travelling to and from school. We also request that Auckland Transport investigates road safety issues created by heavy vehicles such as trucks using on-street parking near schools

viii)      the board requests that Auckland Transport gives priority to delivery of further Residential Speed Management projects in Manurewa, including the Jellicoe and Finlayson Quadrants, in addition to further speed limit reductions planned for this area.

b)          confirm that the name Pukepuke, provided by Te Aakitai Waiohua, covers both Nathan Homestead and David Nathan Park, and therefore is not required to be listed in Tranche 2

c)           endorse the Te Kete Rukuruku programme and process for Māori naming of parks and facilities, noting that it supports the visibility of te reo Māori and seeks to capture and tell the unique stories of Manurewa and Tāmaki Makaurau

d)          acknowledge the intent for Auckland Council to enter a mātauranga agreement that commits to upholding the correct use of Māori names and to use them only for purposes that have a community outreach or educational purpose (non-commercial use)

e)           note that it is expected the Māori names will be adopted by the local board for use as dual names to enrich the stories of our parks and support the Māori language to be visible, heard, spoken and learned.

Resolution number MR/2021/217

MOVED by Chairperson J Allan, seconded by Deputy Chairperson M Moore:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

b)      approve a retrospective amendment to the 2020 – 2023 Community Facilities work programme including budget and timeline changes (resolution number MR/2020/110) as follows:

i)      cancellation of Pitt Avenue Reserve - renew bridge (ID 2733), as the remedial work to preserve the integrity of structure was delivered under urgent minor capex as an operational response project and therefore no longer requires local renewal budget of $77,903.86 in financial year 2020/2021

ii)     reallocation of the Asset Based Services Capex Local Renewal of $77,903.86 within financial year 2020/2021 from cancelled project Pitt Avenue Reserve - renew bridge (ID 2733) to Nathan Homestead - renew building and install wayfinding signage (ID 2536)

It is not anticipated that the deferred asset renewals will have any detrimental impact on the expected outcomes or levels of service in the short term

iv)    reallocation of the Asset Based Services Capex Local Renewal of $19,223.13 within financial year 2020/2021 from deferred project David Nathan Park - renew park assets (Project ID 2514) to Nathan Homestead - renew building and install wayfinding signage (ID 2536)

v)     note that Nathan Homestead - renew building and install wayfinding signage (ID 2536) has been completed as part of Risk Adjusted Programme in financial year 2020/2021 to ensure that the asset remains fit for purpose and to maintain current levels of service

vi)    note that amendments to project budgets and timing have been reflected in the adopted 2021 - 2024 Community Facilities work programme (resolution number MR/2021/93)

Draft Significance and Engagement Policy 2022

 

Resolution number MR/2021/218

MOVED by Member K Penney, seconded by Member D Pizzini:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      provide the following feedback on the draft Significance and Engagement Policy as part of the overall consideration for final adoption in February 2022:

Determining significance

i)             As decision-makers on local matters, activities and services, local boards should have responsibility for determining the degree of significance of proposals or decisions within their local areas. The policy is not clear on the role of local boards in this regard

ii)           Local boards must also have responsibility for decisions or proposals in relation to strategic and non-strategic assets in their area, which they consider essential to the delivery of local community outcomes as identified in their local board plans. This includes assets that are held or managed by a substantive Council Controlled Organisation (CCO)

Engaging Auckland’s Communities

iii)         The board supports a review of the Engagement Guidelines, focusing on how to engage with hard-to-reach communities who don’t provide feedback through our usual methods, and whose voices are therefore often under-represented in local government decision-making

iv)         Region-wide approaches to engagement of Tāmaki Makaurau’s diverse populations can often miss the unique differences within each local board area and fail to capitalise on local knowledge and relationships. The board suggests a much more nuanced approach to local engagement on matters of regional significance and would support directing a greater proportion of resource targeted at hard-to-reach communities

v)           The board supports greater utilisation of community partners to engage with their own communities and seek feedback. Funding should be made available so that community partners are appropriately compensated for this work

vi)         The board requests that engagement materials include visual graphics to point readers to information or explain complex issues

vii)        Local boards need to be appropriately resourced to carry out their engagement responsibilities with their local community on both local and regional consultations, including being provided with engagement materials and tools, such as marketing collateral, to improve participation.

b)      adopt the updated Joint CCO Engagement Plan 2021/2022 as agreed between the local board and Auckland Council’s substantive Council-Controlled Organisations: Auckland Transport, Auckland Unlimited, Eke Panuku Development Auckland, and Watercare

c)           note that the board requested at its workshop with Auckland Transport on Thursday 2 December 2021 that the engagement approach for road corridor renewals (‘reseals’) be changed from ‘inform’ to ‘consult’ to reflect the knowledge that the board can provide on the state of local roads and footpaths, and request this change be reflected in the Quarterly Update for Quarter Two 2021/2022.
