Outdoor Fitness Provision Service Assessment

File No.: CP2022/01397

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To adopt the Albert-Eden Outdoor Fitness Equipment (and selected amenities provision) Service Assessment (March 2022).

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Albert-Eden Local Board approved activity #1216 to assess the provision of outdoor fitness equipment / trails in the local board area.

3.       The assessment was informally broadened to enable the inclusion of a parks’ amenities provision assessment.

4.       Detailed asset information was used to identify service provision gaps and deficiencies in terms of location, who is provided for, and types of exercise experiences and amenities offered.

5.       Analysis of this information has produced guidance as to how the Albert-Eden parks fitness network and broader parks amenities can be improved over the next ten years and implemented through Community Facilities work programmes.

6.       The final Albert-Eden Outdoor Fitness Equipment (and selected amenities provision) Service Assessment is now recommended for adoption. It has been informed by council plans, policies, local board plan priorities and relevant network planning documents.

7.       Development opportunities include a need to increase the provision of fitness equipment / trails, barbecues and drinking fountains (at strategic sites) in the medium term; and it is recommended that additional bike racks, basketball half courts, learn to ride paths and seating are provided over the next five to ten years.

8.       Covid-19 has highlighted the important role that parks play in providing ‘quality of life’ to the Albert-Eden community and it is acknowledged that continued investment will be required across a range of amenities to maintain the current high levels of community satisfaction with local parks.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      adopt the Outdoor Fitness Provision (and selected amenities provision) Service Assessment (March 2022) in Attachment A.

 

Horopaki

Context

9.       The FY2021/2022 board work programme item #1216 required a service assessment for outdoor fitness / trails equipment provision in parks be undertaken across the Albert-Eden Local Board area.

10.     This assessment was undertaken by gathering detailed asset information to identify gaps and deficiencies in terms of location, who is provided for, and the types of exercise experiences provided.

11.     The assessment findings will help guide improvements to the Albert-Eden parks fitness network and future parks investment through local board approved work programmes.   

12.     To add value, staff also undertook a wider assessment of amenity provision by carrying out a desktop study of the 103 parks and reserves across the Albert-Eden Local Board area to quantify the selected amenities (listed below) across the network.

13.     The wider assessment focused on the following park services / assets and their distribution within the parks network:

·      Public toilets

·      Barbecues

·      Drinking fountains

·      Bike racks

·      Rubbish bins

·      Dog bins and bag dispensers

·      Seats and benches

·      Tables

·      Courts - Basketball ½ courts, volleyball courts and petanque/bocce terrain

·      Power outlets

·      BMX tracks/ Skate parks, learn to ride tracks.

14.     The Auckland Council Parks Annual Customer Experience Report notes an overall satisfaction level of 89 per cent for Albert-Eden local parks (satisfied and very satisfied), slightly higher than the Auckland wide average of 85 per cent. The 15-19 years age group reported a 39 per cent very satisfied rating.

15.     These results are pleasing but with significant population growth predicted 37 per cent across the Auckland region and 35 per cent in the Albert-Eden / Whau catchment, by 2038, and with a lack of open space acquisition opportunities within Albert-Eden - consideration needs to be given to how the quality and capacity of the existing network can be managed.

16.     Parts of the Albert-Eden Local Board area are changing, with the Kāinga Ora intensification of neighbourhoods, particularly in Ōwairaka and Waterview. There is also a need to cater for a diverse community and as such, a range of amenities and experiences should be provided.

17.     The visitor experience is very much dependent on the extent and quality of amenities within these parks and places along the way. This assessment identifies areas of focus for fitness and amenity improvements that will increase the capacity of the open space network and the quality of visitor experience. 

18.     Covid-19 has highlighted the important role that parks play in providing ‘quality of life’ to the Albert-Eden community and it is acknowledged that continued investment will be required across a range of amenities in order to maintain the current high levels of community satisfaction with local parks.

Analysis and advice

19.     Current Provision

Staff analysed the current provision across Albert-Eden for the following amenities and found the following:

20.     Fitness equipment / trails are currently located in four local parks, all within the western half of the board area. The set-up follows the traditional layout that typically locates individual pieces on a circuit around a park. This is generally limited to single users per piece and often isolates pieces from each other. There are often issues around understanding how to use the equipment, either through missing information or single language only instructions.

21.     Barbecues have low provision in suburb parks in the south and east of the board area.

22.     Drinking fountains have mixed provision with only six of 16 parks zoned Sport and Active recreation have a drinking fountain and only 11 of 26 suburb parks with a playground have a drinking fountain.

23.     Bike rack provision is generally low. 

24.     Basketball ½ courts are well provided for but there is a lack of courts in the eastern half of the board area.

25.     Learn to ride provision is low, with most experiences located in the western half of the board area only.

26.     Seats and benches are well provisioned across the parks network but there are examples of benches which are isolated from paths or difficult to access due to gradient.

27.     Rubbish Bins are well provisioned and can be replaced as upgrades and renewals are required.

28.     Dog bins and bag dispensers, while poorly provisioned are not considered critical as standard rubbish bins serve dog walkers just as well.

29.     Toilets are well spread across the board area, particularly in suburb parks; 15 of 26 suburb parks included public toilets, with six additional toilets being located outside of parks. The majority of areas are within a 1.0 km radius of a public toilet. From a catchment perspective, toilets are well provided for.

30.     Picnic tables are well provisioned across the board area and should be maintained and upgraded as part of the ongoing renewals programme. Consideration could be given to locating new tables in all parks with playgrounds that currently do not have tables.

31.     Petanque, Bocce, Volleyball provision generally meets current demand. There are two volleyball courts in the local board area; any future provision should be considered at large parks, particularly coastal locations and parks which attract large groups. The use of pentanque and bocce courts seems to be diminishing, with the existing amenities not widely used.

32.     Power outlets are well provisioned across the parks network.

33.     Skate and BMX tracks are costly, specialised play experiences and the level of provision across the wider network, which includes surrounding board areas, is regarded as adequate. There are several existing skate parks near the Albert-Eden local board area which offer additional provision. There are limited opportunities, currently, to expand the provision of skate parks due to spatial limitations and the requirement for high visibility and separation from residential areas.  On the basis that BMX bears some compatibility with skate the current provision levels are regarded as low, but adequate.

34.     Staff advice after analysing the current provision across Albert-Eden, is as follows:

Medium term (3-5 years)

35.     The assessment has identified a need to increase the provision of fitness equipment / trails, drinking fountains and barbecues at some sites over the medium term to address provision gaps and to generally lift the quality of the parks network and visitor experience.

 

 

 

36.     Fitness equipment / trails

Provide a range of experiences in the same location - delivering a safer more inclusive space for users and shifting towards encouraging / enabling social connection and supporting wellbeing. Suggested locations: (refer to page 26, Attachment A):

·    Ōwairaka Park

·    Centennial Park

·    Heron Park

·    Morvern Reserve - Community Facilities have a work programme item #20586 to deliver three static fitness stations around a new internal path in FY2023/2024.

·    Waterview Reserve

·    Mt Albert War Memorial Park – expand on existing provision in Rocket Park

·    Potters Park

·    Windmill Park – (refer to Windmill Park Service Assessment, Attachment B).

37.     Drinking fountains

Consideration should be given to include drinking fountains in more parks as upgrades and renewals are implemented and shared / local paths are realised. Sports parks, active recreation areas, suburb playgrounds, and existing shared / local paths within the parks listed, would provide improved amenity for users with the provision of drinking fountains.

Suggested locations: (refer to page 18, Attachment A):

·    Alan Wood Reserve – walkway

·    Harbutt Reserve – playground

·    Phyllis Reserve – sports field

·    Te Auaunga/ Oakley Creek Walkway

·    Coyle Park – playground

·    Fowlds Park – sports fields, exercise trail and playground

·    Nicholson Park – sports field and courts

·    Windmill Park – courts

·    Warren Freer Reserve – sports field.

38.     Barbecues

Consider more barbecues in destination/ suburb parks and coastal parks as upgrades and renewals are implemented. Suggested locations:  (refer to page 17, Attachment A).

·    Coyle Park

·    Eric Armishaw Reserve

·    Harbutt Reserve

·    Ōwairaka Park.

39.     Skate and BMX tracks

Consider using innovations and activations such as portable/temporary pump tracks to enable temporary or ‘pop-up’ service experiences around skate and BMX in conjunction with seasonal events/activities.

40.     Volleyball

Consider temporary or ‘pop-up’ service experiences for volleyball (nets), in conjunction with seasonal events/activities.

 

 

 

Medium to long term (5 – 10 years)

41.     Over the medium to long term, and as population density increases without increases in additional open space, it is recommended that additional bike racks, basketball half courts, learn to ride paths and seating are provided.

42.     Bike racks

As the increase in alternative transport options unfolds it is expected more people will use cycles for recreational and commuting purposes, with an increased demand on bike racks at key destinations within the park network. Suggested locations:

Locate near the entrances to parks with sports amenity, destination playgrounds and skate amenities, particularly on walkway/ cycleway routes (refer to page 19, Attachment A):

·        Eric Armishaw Park

·        Fowlds Park

·        Gribblehirst Park

·        Melville Park

·        Murray Halberg Park

·        Nicholson Park

·        Nixon Park

·        Ōwairaka Park

·        Walker Park

·        Windmill Park.

43.     Basketball courts

This activity is increasing in popularity and courts can fill the provision gap for teen and youth engagement in parks. Suggested locations (refer to page 27, Attachment A):

·        Coyle Park

·        Fowlds Park

·        Walker Park – limited space.

44.     Learn to ride

The Albert-Eden Play Network Gap Analysis 2021 identified potential sites for prioritising wheeled play, the bulk of which sits outside the eastern area (Ōwairaka Park, Owairaka, Centennial Park, Mt Eden, Coyle Park, Pt Chevalier).

Staff have looked again within the Albert-Eden area, suggested locations are (refer to page 29, Attachment A):

·      Balmoral Heights Reserve, Mount Eden potential for localised informal wheeled play (learn to ride, scooter trail) experiences integrated within path network

·      Premier Reserve, Pt Chevalier – recommended due to high population growth area

·      Windmill Park, Mt Eden – could be integrated with new footpath connections

·      Morvern Reserve – established residential area with good street visibility.

45.     Seating

Design improvements should be made when renewals are undertaken for seats and benches. The Albert-Eden Local Board Neighbourhood Parks Research 2017 identified 20 parks and reserves through community consultation where benches were requested for sites, where there was no current provision or to increase the provision.

Several requests are for seats in shade. Suggested locations (refer to page 23, Attachment A):

·      Nixon Park at skate park

·      Windmill Park

·      Walmer Reserve North and/or South.

46.     It is recommended that any implementation be considered, through future Community Facilities work programmes, renewals, LDI capex investment and advocacy opportunities.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

47.     No major change is envisaged for any sites referenced and therefore the ability to influence climate change either in a positive or negative way is small. However, the board is focused on providing a range of recreation outcomes that complement the local parks network and that will enable and encourage park visits on foot or by bike. Changing travel behaviours across the park network can have a positive knock-on effect in terms of shaping the transport choices people make.  

48.     Specific recreation experiences offered at parks are also important in this regard. Learn to ride facilities, as an example, are key to giving children the skills, confidence and behaviours that could make cycling the preferred transport option in adulthood.   

49.     Where park development does occur, new assets will be durable and sustainably sourced plus constructed in order to help limit the carbon construction footprint and extend the working life of the asset.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

50.     Parks Sport and Recreation staff have worked closely with Community Facilities (CF) who are responsible for the implementation of changes to the parks network. CF understand site pressures, constraints and the need for public consultation in order to ensure development is appropriate and will meet community need.

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

Local impacts and local board views

51.     Improving amenity provision aligns with outcome five from the Albert-Eden Local Board Plan 2020: Parks and community facilities meet a wide range of needs

“Our parks and community facilities provide the opportunity to be active and healthy, be outside, play, connect with others and learn. We will plan how our parks and buildings can be used to their greatest potential, with space for a range of activities”.

52.     The draft service assessment was workshopped with the Albert-Eden Local Board on 8 February 2022. No substantive changes have been made to the draft assessment since the workshop, however all comments and suggestions were worked through, considered, and assessed or were covered off by limitations listed as follows (referenced in Attachment A):

·      The information contained in the assessment was captured at a point in time and may not reflect the current situation

·      Naming of parks and reserves is as they appear in Geomaps and CRAM may differ

·      There is no reference to new projects or renewals in the service assessment

·      Ground truthing has not been completed at all sites (54 out of 103 were visited)

·      The assessment does not include asset condition assessments. It is based on the outcomes and services needed/provided, rather than an asset focus

·      All radial catchment distances are shown from approximate centre of park space

·      Open space not in council ownership is excluded however, it is acknowledged the Cornwall Park Trust Board administered park is owned by all Aucklanders and contributes significantly to the parks network

·      The assets within the parks associated with the three maunga have been included in the assessment tables provided (Attachment A), noting management of these features lies with the Tūpuna Maunga Authority and contributes significantly to the parks network.

53.     A key message was the importance of factoring in growth; staff have included, within the context of this report additional information, relevant to how they have considered growth impacts on the existing network.

54.     Workshop discussions also focused on the opportunity to explore more temporary provision. This includes pump tracks, which get moved around, or is activation/events based such as parkour and volleyball nets.

55.     The merits of adding or encouraging more informal fitness / trail elements, as opposed to a formal or asset creation based were also promoted.

56.     There were also a range of parks and provision of amenities suggested for consideration/inclusion, that were not included in the final service assessment. For example, water features which are out of scope for this assessment. The service assessment provides advice to the local board but does not preclude decisions being made which are inconsistent with the assessment.

57.     Lack of drinking fountains by toilets was also discussed. Staff advice is to prioritise drinking fountains, (in the medium term) with a focus on shared / local paths, sports parks, active recreation areas, and suburb playgrounds, instead. Asset renewals will provide opportunities for additional drinking fountains, where toilets are currently lacking these.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

58.     Parks and reserves are taonga and hold significant importance to mana whenua. Developing a network of neighbourhood parks that provide for all ages and abilities will positively benefit the health and wellbeing of mana whenua and the wider community through increased recreation provision.

59.     Partnering with mana whenua will enable delivery of the following environmental outcome identified in the Schedule of Issues of Significance 2021– 2025 document: ‘Māori cultural values, history and heritage are reflected within the built environment through design, architecture and the inclusion of uniquely Māori design principles in public space’.

60.     Mana whenua consultation will occur as part of the investigation and concept design process that will be undertaken by Community Facilities.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

61.     Implementation of the service assessment will be considered by the local board as part of the annual work programme and budgeting process. This will include considering priorities which have been identified in the assessment and how they can be delivered as part of the renewals programme (of existing assets), allocating capital funding, or advocacy and partnership opportunities. The Community Facilities work programme is developed by the local board on an annual basis which will reflect priorities for implementation, and costs for each project.    

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

62.     There are no risks associated with adopting the Albert-Eden Outdoor Fitness Equipment (and selected amenities provision) Service Assessment.  The assessment identifies opportunity rather than confirming development outcomes.

63.     Park layout changes however, always come with risk and this risk needs to be considered as part of any planning or implementation process particularly with larger amenity elements such as skate and BMX facilities.

64.     The impacts on landscape, neighbours, current recreation outcomes and budgets, as well as general adherence to the intent of reserve management plans, all need to be considered.

65.     Risk in this regard is mitigated by carrying out feasibility studies, undertaking public consultation and having a clear understanding of cost prior to works being approved and undertaken.

Local board input to development of Auckland Transport’s Interim Speed Management Plan

File No.: CP2022/02921

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek early local board input to the development of Auckland Transport’s proposed interim Auckland Speed Management Plan.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Central government is committed to speed reductions and the ‘Vision Zero’ road safety policy and is considering implementing regulations that would require the creation of regional speed management plans.

3.       Introduction of an interim Speed Management Plan meets the council’s direction to Auckland Transport (AT) to reduce road deaths and serious injuries, and to prepare to meet the proposed central government rules.

4.       In December 2021, AT advised all local boards about the development of an interim Auckland Speed Management Plan for the period 2023-26. The plan will create a framework for setting new speed limits and will influence plans for related safety infrastructure across Auckland.  

5.       Prior to developing the interim Speed Management Plan, AT is seeking input from local boards, specifically to identify a list of roads in each local board area that should be reviewed when staff develop the proposed plan.

6.       The interim Speed Management Plan will be in place between 2023 and 2026. During 2023, consultation will begin on the first ten-year plan which is expected to be in place from 2024 to 2034.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Albert-Eden Local Board:

a)      provide feedback on the introduction of an interim Auckland Speed Management Plan.

b)      provide a list of roads within the local board area that should be reviewed when staff develop the proposed plan.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       AT has made speed limit changes covering 11 per cent of the road network, with changes to a further 27 per cent of the road network proposed. Each local board has received information detailing the roads in their area where changes are proposed under the first three phases of the Safe Speeds Programme.

8.       The Interim Speed Management Plan will continue this process of expanding Auckland’s network of safer roads.

9.       Between March and June 2022, AT will undertake an assessment to consider feedback from elected members, mana whenua, partners and the community against technical considerations related to benefit, cost, and risk. Several checks will then be made, including technical and legal reviews, and funding criteria. This work will inform the options that are presented as part of public consultation, planned to take place in late 2022.

Auckland Council Strategic Alignment

10.     Auckland Council is committed to road safety. The Auckland Plan envisages a transport network free of deaths and serious injuries by 2050. AT deliver the council’s policies in relation to transport. AT developed ‘Vision Zero for Tāmaki Makaurau’ in response to goals within the Auckland Plan and with the council’s Planning Committee’s direction. The interim speed management plan is a key contribution to ‘Vision Zero for Tāmaki Makaurau’.

11.     The interim Speed Management Plan encourages safer speeds that contribute to ‘Te-Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan’ by making roads safer and encouraging greater use of more environmentally friendly transport modes, such as walking and cycling. 

Central Government Alignment: Proposed Land Transport Rule on Setting Speed Limits

12.     ‘Road to Zero’ is New Zealand’s road safety strategy; infrastructure improvements and speed management are its first focus areas. In 2021, Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency consulted on a proposed new ‘Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2021’.

13.     The proposed changes include requirements for local authorities to develop speed management plans and set lower speed limits around schools to improve safety and encourage more children to use active modes of transport.

14.     Central government is considering the proposed rule and a decision is expected in the second quarter of 2022. Waka Kotahi is expected to release a new speed management guide at the same time as the new rule, which will include updated safe and appropriate speed limit ranges for our roads and streets. Under the proposed rule, AT is required to consult on speed limit changes in accordance with the Local Government Act 2002.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

15.     Development of an interim Speed Management Plan is a long process, and this engagement is an early step. AT will engage with the public, other agencies and elected members throughout 2022. 

16.     The current round of local board consultation started in December 2021. In February and March 2022, AT attended workshops with local boards and is now inviting feedback, specifically about roads or areas where there is community demand for safer speeds.

17.     Please note that where roads and schools are already included in conversations taking place within Tranche 2B of the previous speed limits programme, these should not be included in feedback on the interim Speed Management Plan.

18.     Feedback from local boards will contribute to the development of a draft Speed Management Plan that AT will consult on in late 2022. Following public consultation, the AT Board will finalise and approve an interim Auckland Speed Management Plan 2023-2026.

19.     The role of the local board is not to make technical decisions about speed management, but instead to provide the community’s perspective on local concerns and interests related to speed management.


 

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

20.     Auckland Transport engages closely with the council to develop strategies, actions, and measures that support the outcomes sought by the Auckland Plan 2050, Te-Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri the Auckland Climate Action Plan, and other council priorities.

21.     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. The primary climate change benefit of safe and appropriate speed limits is that they support and encourage greater take-up of walking, cycling and micro mobility by reducing the risk to vulnerable road users, making these modes safer and more attractive. This supports emissions reductions.

22.     Recent surveys of town centres in which speed limits were reduced and safety improvements introduced in the first tranche of Auckland Transport’s speed limit changes demonstrated a link between slower speeds and more people walking or cycling. Surveys found that 19 per cent of local people now participate in at least one ‘active mode’ activity (for example, walking or cycling) more often since the projects have been completed. Increasing the number of people choosing to walk or cycle reduces emissions.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     Auckland Transport engages closely with the council on developing strategies, actions, and measures to support the outcomes sought by the Auckland Plan 2050, Te-Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri the Auckland Climate Action Plan and other council priorities.

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

Local impacts and local board views

24.     The new Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022, once introduced, will require road controlling authorities to:

·      reduce 40 per cent of their school speed limits by 2024, with all reductions completed by 2030

·      include their proposed speed limit changes and safety infrastructure treatments (including proposed safety camera placements) for the coming ten years into speed management plans

·      implement a new consultation process that aligns with the three-year Regional Land Transport Planning (RLTP) consultation process.

25.     The new rule will remove the requirement to set speed limits through bylaws, enabling a whole-of-network approach that considers safety-related infrastructure improvements, speed limit changes and safety camera placement together.

26.     Taken together, these changes will have a significant impact on Auckland communities, and on the ways that Aucklanders input into decisions around safer speed limits.

27.     In addition to the feedback local boards are invited to provide in response to this report, local boards will continue to be kept informed and up to date as this process progresses.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

28.     Auckland Transport is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its broader legal obligations in being more responsive to and inclusive of Māori.

29.     AT’s Māori Responsiveness Plan outlines the commitment to 19 mana whenua iwi in Auckland to deliver effective and well-designed transport policy and solutions. AT also recognises mataawaka and their representative bodies and our desire to foster a relationship with them. This plan is available on the Auckland Transport website - https://at.govt.nz/about-us/transport-plans-strategies/maori-responsiveness-plan/#about

30.     Safe speeds make our roads safer for active road users, which encourages more people to walk, cycle and use public transport. Te Ora ō Tāmaki Makaurau is the well-being framework developed by the Mana Whenua Kaitiaki Forum in response to Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri. Safer roads contribute to more people walking or cycling, which in turn supports this framework developed by Mana Whenua.

31.     Waka Kotahi’s 2021 study ‘He Pūrongo Whakahaumaru Huarahi Mō Ngā Iwi Māori – Māori Road Safety Outcomesprovides data demonstrating that Māori are disproportionately more likely to be hurt or killed on New Zealand roads. The interim Speed Management Plan is expected to result in significant positive impacts for Auckland’s Māori communities.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

32.     Providing feedback on the development of the interim Speed Management Plan has no financial implications for local boards.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

33.     Providing feedback on the development of the interim Speed Management Plan does not present any risks for local boards.

34.     There is a risk to Auckland Transport if the interim Speed Management Plan is not finalised in time to meet central government requirements. This risk has been mitigated by ensuring that development and engagement on the interim plan begins ahead of the Minister of Transport announcing their final decision on the proposed rule.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

35.     Local board feedback will be used by AT to inform the development of the interim Speed Management Plan.

36.     Between March and June 2022, Waka Kotahi will confirm that the new Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022 has been approved by the Minister of Transport.

37.     Between June and August 2022, AT will communicate to local boards how their feedback has been taken into account in the development of a draft plan.

38.     In late 2022, AT will undertake public consultation on a draft version of the interim Speed Management Plan. The AT Board will then consider any recommended changes to the draft and approve an interim plan.

39.     The interim Speed Management Plan will be in place between 2023 and 2026. During 2023, consultation will begin on the first ten-year plan which is expected to be in place from 2024 to 2034.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     Updating the Joint CCO Engagement Plan between the local board and Auckland Council’s substantive Council-Controlled Organisations does not have a direct impact on climate, however the projects it refers to will.

22.     Each CCO must work within Te Taruke-a-Tawhiri: Auckland's Climate Action Framework and information on climate impacts will be provided to local boards on a project or programme basis.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     Approving the updated Joint CCO Engagement Plan 2021/2022 is likely to have a positive impact on other parts of the council as well as between the respective CCOs within each local board area.

24.     These plans will be shared with the integration teams that implement local board work programmes and will give council staff greater ongoing visibility of CCO work programmes.

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

Local impacts and local board views

25.     Local board engagement plans enable local boards to signal to CCOs those projects that are of greatest interest to the local board, and to ensure that engagement between the local board and the four CCOs is focussed on those priority areas.

26.     Joint CCO engagement plans also give local boards the opportunity to communicate to CCOs which projects they expect to be of most interest to their communities.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

27.     Updating and adopting the Joint CCO Engagement Plan 2021/2022 may have a positive impact on local engagement with mana whenua and mataawaka.

28.     While both CCOs and local boards have engagement programmes with Māori, the engagement plan will allow a more cohesive and coordinated approach to engagement, with more advance planning of how different parts of the community will be involved.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

29.     The adoption of the Joint CCO Engagement Plan 2021/2022 between the local board and Auckland Council’s substantive Council-Controlled Organisations does not have financial impacts for local boards.

30.     Any financial implications or opportunities will be provided to local boards on a project or programme basis.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

31.     It is likely that there will be changes made to work programme items in the engagement plan during the year, or to the level of engagement that the board or the community will have. This risk is mitigated by ensuring that the document states clearly that it is subject to change, contains a table recording changes made since it was signed, and will be re-published on the local board agenda quarterly, to ensure public transparency.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

32.     The local board will receive the next quarterly update for Quarter Three in June 2022.

33.     A workshop will be held in April to begin development of a new engagement plan for 2022/2023.

Local board feedback on resource management system reform: 'Our future resource management system'

File No.: CP2022/02889

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To note the local board’s formal input into the Ministry for the Environment’s Transforming Aotearoa New Zealand’s resource management system: Our future resource management system discussion document.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Government is undertaking comprehensive reform of the resource management system. This will entail the repeal of the Resource Management Act (RMA) and enactment of three pieces of legislation: a Natural and Built Environments Act, a Spatial Planning Act, and a Managed Retreat and Climate Change Adaptation Act. The scale of reform is likely to be substantial and would have significant impacts on council.

3.       This input will be the third submission council has made on these reforms. Earlier submissions were in response to:

·    Transforming the resource management system: opportunities for change - Issues and options paper as part of the Resource Management Review Panel’s review of the resource management system;

·    An exposure draft of the Natural and Built Environments Bill which was subject to an inquiry by the Environment Select Committee.

4.       In November 2021, the Ministry for the Environment released Transforming Aotearoa New Zealand’s resource management system: Our future resource management system - Materials for Discussion.

5.       Auckland Council was given the opportunity to provide feedback on Transforming Aotearoa New Zealand’s resource management system: Our future resource management system.

6.       Local boards were invited to provide input with a deadline of 14 February 2022 for feedback to be incorporated into the council’s submission. As this deadline fell before the next scheduled business meeting, formal feedback from the Albert-Eden Local Board was provided by the Urgent Decision process, in accordance with Albert-Eden Local Board resolution AE/2019/104.

7.       The local board’s feedback was provided to Auckland Council subject-matter experts prior to the deadline. A copy of the local board’s feedback is attached to this report (Attachment A).

That the Albert-Eden Local Board

a)      exclude the public from the following part(s) of the proceedings of this meeting.

The general subject of each matter to be considered while the public is excluded, the reason for passing this resolution in relation to each matter, and the specific grounds under section 48(1) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 for the passing of this resolution follows.

This resolution is made in reliance on section 48(1)(a) of the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 and the particular interest or interests protected by section 6 or section 7 of that Act which would be prejudiced by the holding of the whole or relevant part of the proceedings of the meeting in public, as follows:

Reason for passing this resolution in relation to each matter

Particular interest(s) protected (where applicable)

Ground(s) under section 48(1) for the passing of this resolution

The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

s7(2)(i) - The withholding of the information is necessary to enable the local authority to carry on, without prejudice or disadvantage, negotiations (including commercial and industrial negotiations).

In particular, the report contains details regarding negotations not yet finalised.

s48(1)(a)

The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

 

C2       Own Your Own Home Scheme

Reason for passing this resolution in relation to each matter

Particular interest(s) protected (where applicable)

Ground(s) under section 48(1) for the passing of this resolution

The public conduct of the part of the meeting would be likely to result in the disclosure of information for which good reason for withholding exists under section 7.

s7(2)(c)(i) - The withholding of the information is necessary to protect information which is subject to an obligation of confidence or which any person has been or could be compelled to provide under the authority of any enactment, where the making available of the information would be likely to prejudice the supply of similar information or information from the same source and it is in the public interest that such information should continue to be supplied.

In particular, the report contains information covered in confidential Finance and Performance workshops and information relating to commercial activities that affect private landowners and negotiations associated with Auckland Council’s Own Your Own Home Scheme portfolio which has not been finalised or released publicly.
