Assessment of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park designation

 

Maclean Grindell, Senior Policy Advisor and Carole Canler, Senior Policy Manager, were in attendance via Microsoft Teams to address the board on this item. 

 

 

Resolution number KT/2022/45

MOVED by Chairperson J Gillon, seconded by Member M Kenrick:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)          receive the assessment of the change of designation of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park and adjacent Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve to a regional park.

b)         reiterate its support for either Chelsea Estate Heritage Park on its own, or Chelsea Estate Heritage Park combined with Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve, to become a new regional park in recognition of the unique heritage, history, ecology and general significance of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park and the wider headland.

c)          note that there is no current framework for assessing whether a local reserve should be designated a regional park, and that while the three factors of Values, Outcomes and Decision-making allocation principles have been applied to evaluating Chelsea Estate Heritage Park, they do not appear to have been applied to a combined Chelsea Estate Heritage Park, Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve.

d)         disagree with some of the conclusions of the staff assessment outlined in the agenda report, including that:

i)           Chelsea Estate Heritage Park is impacted by ongoing operations at the Chelsea Sugar Factory: on the contrary, the heritage nature of the factory adds to the aesthetics, vista and history of the park; Chelsea Sugar allows park visitors to access their land, including the playground and carpark; Chelsea Sugar takes a keen interest on the development and upkeep of the park. When the three parks are viewed as a whole, the factory takes up a small amount of the headland.

ii)         Chelsea Estate Heritage Park has limited recreation opportunities: on the contrary, the three parks have a large network of tracks of varying difficulty, as well as ponds, open grass areas for recreation and picnicing, a large sandy beach in Kendall Bay, scenic lookouts, and a connection to Chelsea Bay. There are also heritage features and an artwork.

iii)        Chelsea Estate Heritage Park is predominantly used by the local board’s residents: the research actually showed that 40% of visitors came from the Kaipātiki Local Board area, which is not a majority, and that 40% came from further afield than the North Shore and Waitakere. Regardless of that, the three parks are currently local parks, and not promoted as a regional park, so it is to be expected than many visitors are local and is a conclusion that is likely to be reached for any prospective regional park (with many not actually attracting any visitors in their former lives as private property). We believe that as a regional park, the reach of the park would indeed be regional, and be highly popular with it being visible from a large part of urban Auckland, and much more accessible to Aucklanders than many current regional parks.

iv)        Visitor infrastructure is insufficient to cater to Auckland-wide catchment: this would be the case for any prospective regional park (especially those that are formally private property). However the Chelsea cottages and Manager house have scope to be repurposed from tenanted homes to visitor infrastructure, heritage attractions, ranger accommodation, or accommodation for over-night park visitors. There is space around the toilet block for expansion if required. There is space to expand or upgrade carparks if required. There is grass space that could be enhanced with BBQs and park furniture, if required.

v)         The reserve is not used to host major events: It is not currently used for events, other than private weddings. However it does have the space to be used for events, and applications for such have been received in the past.

d)         note that in lieu of the creation of a regional park, staff are considering how best to address the issues identified for Chelsea Estate Heritage Park, Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve in the Kaipātiki Local Parks Management Plan, which is due for completion at the end of 2022.

e)          note that within the draft Regional Parks Management Plan the following issues have been identified for which a combined regional park of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park, Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve would satisfy: 

i)           To provide for the growing population and increased development in many areas purchase of more regional parkland will be desirable. Population growth is planned to be concentrated in and around central Auckland, Albany, and North West Auckland.  

ii)         Radical changes are needed including both how we access regional parks and the emissions created from visiting regional parks. 

iii)        Mode shifts is more likely to be possible where people live near a regional park or the park is near an urban area.  Chelsea offers a unique opportunity for Auckland to access a regional park by walking, boating, cycling or via public transport. The remoteness of regional parks may be a barrier in accessing them with EV. 

iv)        Need for Regional parks to provide for increasingly diverse recreational needs, such as paddleboarding, kite surfing, and biking opportunities. There are many sheltered bays surrounding Chelsea that would be suitable for paddleboarding and water recreation. There is also the potential space for both e-bike and mountain biking opportunities to be developed within the park. 

f)           invite the members of the Parks, Arts, Community and Events committee to a site visit prior to making a decision on the regional park proposal.

g)         request the opportunity for the Chairperson and Member Melanie Kenrick to address the Parks, Arts, Community and Events committee on 7 April 2022 in support of changing the designation of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park and adjacent Kauri Point Centennial Park and Chatswood Reserve to a regional park.
