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

File No.: CP2022/02771

 

  

 

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 2023-2026. 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 Waitematā 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 11per 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 plays a key role 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% 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% 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 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 a 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.

Harbour Bridge Park Concept Design

File No.: CP2022/02345

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       Seek endorsement of the Harbour Bridge Park Concept Design for public consultation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The upgrade of the Harbour Bridge Park was identified in the Waterfront Plan 2012 and the Westhaven Plan 2013 (2015). This project proposes a public realm upgrade along Curran Street in Westhaven. 

3.       The concept design proposes a spatial layout that moves the current layout of Curran Street south, away from the water’s edge, to maximise the public space and provide safe walking and cycling connections along the water’s edge towards the Westhaven Promenade.

4.       Eke Panuku sought and received Long-term Plan funding for this project with an outlook to start construction mid-2023. The timeline for the project was originally brought forward to align with the Northern Pathway landing in Westhaven and the Watercare Booster Pump Station. The opportunity was to align outcomes for the area and ensure a dig once approach to minimise disruption.

5.       In October 2021, the Government decided not to proceed with the standalone bridge component of the Northern Pathway and further options are being considered. Although it is not clear if Westhaven will still play a role in this connection the concept design thinking has future proofed for multi-modal transport outcomes. Eke Panuku is continuing to work with Watercare to ensure this regional infrastructure project design, outcomes and programme is integrated in this area.

6.       The draft concept design was presented to the Waitematā Local Board at a workshop on 7 December 2021, and informal feedback was received.  Eke Panuku is seeking formal endorsement of the concept design for public consultation planned over the coming months.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      endorse the Harbour Bridge Park Concept Design (as per attachment) for public consultation.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       Harbour Bridge Park is a council-owned public open space and road (Curran Street) located at the western entrance to Westhaven Marina and beneath the Point Erin area. As a public space, it provides connection to the water and is an active space for fishermen, pedestrians, and cyclists.

8.       The Waterfront Plan 2012 and The Westhaven Plan 2013 (revised 2015) identifies Harbour Bridge Park as an important gateway to the city.


 

9.       The Waterfront Plan 2012 described the upgrade of Harbour Bridge Park as: “A new green public space featuring a waterfront walkway and cycleway, providing increased access to the water for St Mary’s and Herne Bay residents and the wider community. There will be opportunities for native planting, recognition of cultural heritage and picnic and fishing spots to make the most of this area’s superb outlook across the harbour.”

10.     In 2017, a concept design for Harbour Bridge Park was created to align with the then proposed Skypath project. Consultation with interested stakeholders took place and feedback was incorporated into the design. Progress paused when the Skypath project was withdrawn.

11.     In 2020, the Northern Pathway project (previously Skypath) received Government funding from the NZ Upgrade Programme to fast track consenting and construction. The proposed design was a clip-on pathway to support people walking and cycling across the Auckland Harbour Bridge, that landed in Westhaven.

12.     In 2020, Watercare approached Eke Panuku with their plans to install a booster pump station within Harbour Bridge Park. This project includes a water supply line that connects from Westhaven to Sulphur Beach and is integral to future proof the water supply to the North Shore. Watercare Limited is in the preliminary design phase of the booster pump station and the location is proposed to be constructed on adjoining land currently owned by Waka Kotahi.

13.     With the introduction of these two projects in the same area, to ensure a cohesive, dig once approach, Eke Panuku brought planning forward for Harbour Bridge Park, and has received Long-term Plan funding to start construction in April 2023.

14.     On 2 October 2021 the Government announced that it would not proceed with the option of the Northern Pathway project landing in Westhaven and would instead investigate an alternative way for people to cross the Waitematā Harbour. With the change in plans from Waka Kotahi, Watercare is considering further options for the required infrastructure connections and likely design changes required.

15.     The Eke Panuku and Watercare Limited teams are working together to ensure that design and space integration is consistent and that each project enhances the other through design and landscaping. Programming of construction works will need to be considered jointly. 

16.     Eke Panuku has worked with LandLAB (landscape architects) to refresh the 2017 Harbour Bridge Park concept design and has received feedback from the Eke Panuku Mana Whenua group, Governing Body and Working Group, the Eke Panuku Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Waitematā Local Board. This concept design sets out key moves for the future of the park, that we wish to test and engage with key stakeholders and the general public to inform the next stage of design.

 

Harbour Bridge Park concept design detail

17.     The concept design for Harbour Bridge Park weaves together a water’s edge promenade, a linear park space and a street to re-program the site.

18.     The design has been built on the early engagement in 2017 and recently more informed by engagement with the Waitematā Local Board and mana whenua.  The importance of recreational outcomes such as fishing and accessibility was a strong theme through this feedback, including increased connectivity to the water and improved marine habitat environments

19.     The waahi tapu site (site of significance) Te Routu o Ureia will be represented in the space through landscape design, māori mahi toi (māori art) and Te Reo signage.

20.     The vision emerging from the concept design is for a waterfront park informed by the original shoreline, that reconnects the reef and headland landscapes.


 

 

 

21.     The concept design seeks to achieve the following key design moves:

-     Curran St will be realigned to the back edge of the land parcel and redesigned to one way traffic with a separated cycleway which acts as a key connection between the north-western and central city cycle network

-     Realigning the carriageway will enable a wide promenade on the water’s edge for public use and recreation

-     Landscaping and topography to reflect the reef (Te Routu o Ureia) and headland landscapes

-     Open green space to encourage recreational activity, curved topography to provide shelter and elevated views across the harbour

-     Cantilevered piers allow for an extended area for fishing activities, informed through the current high levels of activity

-     Seating provision to accommodate a range of users.

-     Swale and landscape planting within carparking area allows for improved stormwater treatment

-     Ground levels to be elevated from current levels to mitigate climate change (rising sea levels / storm surges and inundation).

-     Carparking provision will be maintained similar to current levels.

22.     These design moves mean that the waterfront edge will be fully utilised and enjoyed with increased pedestrian promenade space and connected green space for informal park usage.  The project will be able to deliver on identified mana whenua outcomes such as place narration through artwork and landscape planting.

23.     After Waitematā Local Board endorsement of the concept design for consultation, Eke Panuku will begin key stakeholder engagement and public consultation.  This engagement will inform the objectives and outcomes as the design progresses.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

·    Key waterfront connection of waterfront communities such as Herne Bay and St Marys Bay

·    Open green space to encourage recreational activity, curved topography to provide shelter and elevated views across the harbour.

 

25.     The Eke Panuku Technical Advisory Group (TAG) members (independent design review panel) have specifically made comment in support of the curving ‘fishing zone’, promenade, cycle path, raingardens, parking, planting, and the radial paths that intercept the bund and cycle path which extend onto cantilevered lookouts. They supported the curved bund as an integrating element that will maximise use of this west facing shoreline to provide a strong backdrop to the promenade.

Climate impact statement

26.     Refer to the above table, which reflects the thinking on climate impacts.  Through our further design work, our procurement approach and delivery we will be specifically addressing the climate impact.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

27.     Watercare Limited is supportive of the Harbour Bridge Park concept design.  We will continue to work with Watercare through the integration of the design outcomes and programming for both projects.

28.     We are aware of Auckland Transports potential plans to extend the Tamaki bus service to Westhaven, we are awaiting further detail on feasibility and operation requirements. Through the next stage of the process we will engage with Auckland Transport further through the design process on connectivity, particularly as it relates to connections to other cycle networks.

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

Local impacts and local board views

29.     Eke Panuku has presented emerging thinking on this project at the Waitematā Local Board workshops on 5 August 2020, 9 February 2021, and 1 June 2021.

30.     Specific to this concept design, at a workshop on the 13 October 2020, Eke Panuku provided an update to the Waitemata Local Board on the proposed Harbour Bridge Park project. At this workshop jointly attended by Watercare, we noted that with the introduction of the Northern Pathway project there was a need to work jointly on ensuring integrated and quality outcomes for this special place.

31.     The draft concept design was presented to the Waitematā Local Board at a workshop on 7 December 2021, and feedback was received. This included requests for seating on the cantilever structures, shade, drinking fountains, māori art, for the park to be dog friendly, and for the aesthetic to match the Westhaven Promenade – all this feedback has been incorporated into the concept design. It was also requested that Eke Panuku look into the feasibility of basketball courts by the pump station.  There was a discussion about the possibility of a pedestrian connection from Point Erin Park into Harbour Bridge Park, this has been investigated but is not possible to action within the current project scope and budget.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

32.     Eke Panuku has an ongoing commitment to support delivery through the Māori Outcomes and Responsiveness framework. Eke Panuku has regularly engaged in workshops with Mana Whenua since 2020 and incorporated their feedback into the Harbour Bridge Park concept design.

33.     A waahi tapu site (site of significance) for mana whenua is Te Routu o Ureia, Ureia is the renowned taniwha of the Marutuahu tribes of Hauraki. This is a protected area of reef that a renowned taniwha scratched its back on. The Sites and Places of Significance to Mana Whenua Overlay applies to sites and places that have been scheduled and protected for their significance to Mana Whenua

34.     Te Routu o Ureia has been acknowledged in the concept design and will be represented in the space through landscape design, māori mahi toi (māori art) and Te Reo signage.

35.     Eke Panuku will specifically engage with the Eke Panuku Mana Whenua Forum and Working group as this design progresses.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

36.     Eke Panuku has sought and received Long-term Plan funding for this project. Based on current estimates, the indicative anticipated cash flows for the project over its intended life span (preferred option) is set out in the table below.

Project cost ($000 in current year term)

2021/22

2022/23

2023/24

2024/25

Total

Capital expenditure

 

$2.7M

$4M

$1.3

$8M

 

37.     It is anticipated that there will be increased costs for delivery as the scope is agreed and through escalated construction costs. Final costs are yet to be confirmed after developed design is completed and reviewed for budget forecasting by the Quantity Surveyor.  These costs and approach will need to be agreed by the Eke Panuku Executive.

38.     By working with Watercare Limited in the same location we will be looking for efficiencies in design and delivery and ways to share costs.

File No.: CP2022/02336

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide the Waitematā Local Board with an update on Council-controlled Organisation work programme items in its area, along with updates to the Waitematā Local Board Joint CCO Engagement Plan.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The 2021/2022 CCO Local Board Joint Engagement Plans were agreed in 2021.

3.       Updates are made to the engagement plan throughout the year to ensure the plan is up to date and fit for purpose.

4.       An updated version of the engagement plan is provided as Attachment A.

5.       Work programme updates from Auckland Transport, Auckland Unlimited, Eke Panuku Development Auckland and Watercare Attachments are provided as Attachments B-E. 

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      receive the Council-controlled Organisations Quarterly Report for Quarter Two 2021/2022

b)      approve updates to the Joint CCO Engagement Plan 2021/2022. 

Horopaki

Context

6.       Each local board has agreed an engagement approach with the four CCOs for the 2021/2022 local work programme. 

7.       While the local board approves the Joint CCO Engagement Plan each year, it remains a live document and CCOs are encouraged to keep the document up to date.

8.       Updates are also made by Local Board Services, where improvements can be made to all 21 engagement plans, and to keep information up to date.

9.       This report may include the following types of changes:

·    Additional work programme items, and proposed engagement level

·    Proposed changes to the engagement approach with the local board

·    Proposed changes to the extent of community engagement

10.     In addition, the four CCOs provide a quarterly update on projects listed in the engagement plan.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

11.     At the 14 December 2021 business meeting the Waitematā Local Board received the Quarter One Joint CCO Engagement Plan and resolved the following:

a)      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, and recommend the following changes:

i)     in the Eke Panuku Development Auckland work programme, amend the engagement level for Bledisloe House, Pompallier Terrace, and Queen Street properties renewal from “inform” to “consult”

ii)     in the Auckland Unlimited work programme amend the engagement level for the Auckland Stadium Development Strategy from “inform” to “consult”

iii)    in the Auckland Transport work programme amend the engagement level for Safety West Lynn, Safety John Street, and Multiple Modes Victoria Street Cycleway from “inform” to “consult”

iv)    in the Waitematā Local Board topic portfolio leads, make changes to the portfolio responsibilities for Chair R Northey, Member A Avendaño Christie, and Member G Fryer and for landowner consents for filming for Member G Fryer to reflect the decisions made earlier in the meeting under item 17.

12.     Responses received from the Council Controlled Organisations to the resolutions agreed at the December 2021 business meeting are included below.

Updates from Local Board Services

13.     Updates have been made where there have been staff changes within Local Board Services or CCOs and amendment of elected member portfolio allocations to align with the resolved amendments at the 14 December 2021 business meeting.

14.     These changes are reflected in Attachment A – Waitematā Local Board Joint CCO Engagement Plan 2021/2022.

Auckland Transport

15.     The West Lynn Project is designed and ready for delivery and contractors have been procured. At this advanced stage there is no facility for modification to the plan. 

16.     Victoria Street Cycleway is delivered. The intersection of Union and Victoria Streets is referred to in the engagement plan. This intersection had performance issues that needed to be addressed. The outcome of the review was circulated to the Waitematā Local Board and the modifications to the intersection completed. This will be reported in the latest CCO Engagement Plan Report.

17.     The review of John Street’s operation is currently on-hold. Moving to a ‘Consult’ level of engagement at this time is likely premature. Auckland Transport will continue to keep the Waitematā Local Board informed of any changes and at that time will look to move the project to a ‘Consult’ level of engagement.

18.     Auckland Transport’s work programme updates for Quarter Two are provided as Attachment B.

Updates to the Auckland Transport work programme

19.     No updates have been made.

Auckland Unlimited

20.     Auckland Unlimited’s work programme updates for Quarter Two are provided as Attachment C.

21.     Auckland Unlimited advises that it is not an appropriate stage of the project to amend the engagement level from inform to consult. The project is in a feasibility and discovery phase. This investigative work needs to take place before further steps in the business case happen, determining whether a single operating model for Auckland’s stadia is feasible – as per the Q2 Report to CCO Oversight Committee.

Updates to the Auckland Unlimited work programme

Additional activities

22.     These activities have been added since the last update, and are provided alongside the suggested engagement approach:

·        Government COVID-19 support packages (Activate and Reactivating Tāmaki Makaurau)

·        Sustainability Initiatives

·        Skills and workforce: Pacific Skills Shift

Eke Panuku Development Auckland

23.     Eke Panuku’s work programme updates for Quarter Two are provided as Attachment D.

24.     Eke Panuku has given the below written update on Bledisloe House and Queen St properties renewal:

·        Bledisloe House: Eke Panuku have agreed to provide a timeframe to the local board to provide more regular updates on this project via workshops

·        Queen Street properties renewal: Eke Panuku, via the renewals programme will be undertaking works to make sure these buildings are safe for commercial tenants. The engagement level on this project will be reviewed in the next 12 months

·        Pompallier Terrace: Eke Panuku has agreed to change the engagement level from ‘inform’ to ‘consult’

Updates to the Eke Panuku work programme

25.     No updates have been made. 

Watercare

26.     Watercare’s work programme updates for Quarter Two are provided as Attachment E.

Updates to the Watercare work programme

Additional activities

27.     These activities have been added since the last update, and are provided alongside the suggested engagement approach:

·        Newmarket – targeted asset renewals

·        North Shore 3

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

28.     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.

29.     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

30.     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.

31.     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

32.     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.

33.     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

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

35.     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

36.     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.

37.     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

38.     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

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

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

Amendment to Standing Orders

File No.: CP2022/02503

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval for an amendment to the Standing Orders and the adoption of a new Appendix, Appendix E, to the Waitematā Local Board Standing Orders.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       At its 17 August 2021 local board meeting, the Waitematā Local Board considered a Notice of Motion put forward by the local board chair to seek clarity regarding matters recorded in minutes.  Particularly in relation to the tabling and inclusion in the meeting minutes of documents provided by members of the public.

3.       The local board resolved to: ‘request that staff investigate and report back to the local board’s meeting in September 2021 on options for amendments to the Waitematā Local Board Standing Orders or other options to provide for a clear and transparent process regarding the inclusion of presentations by members of the public in the minutes of local board meetings’.  (Resolution Number WTM/2021/186)

4.       In response to this resolution, a report was brought to the board’s 16 November 2021 local board meeting, to provide advice to the board on options for how to consider information provided by members of the public during deputation and public forum and to clarify what information should not be attached to official published minutes. (Attachment A to this agenda report).

5.       At its 16 November meeting, the Waitematā Local Board resolved (Resolution Number WTM/2021/272) to:

a)      agree that information that has been formally received as tabled information by the local board be attached to the published minutes, noting that staff will review and redact or omit any material breaches of LGOIMA, other legislation or Standing Orders (Option One of the agenda report)

b)      request that staff develop a new appendix outlining the principles, criteria and process for minute attachments to be added to the Standing Orders for the local board consideration and approval

c)      request the time allotted for each public forum item is increased to a maximum of five minutes

d)      request staff advise deputations and public forum participants that it is the local boards preference to receive presentations and any supporting information 24 hours in advance of the business meeting.

6.       A new appendix to the standing orders (Attachment B to this agenda report) has been developed.  The appendix seeks to clarify what constitutes a tabled document and outlines the principles and process for documents provided by deputation and public forum speakers.  The appendix also outlines when tabled information will not be attached to the published minutes. 

7.       The current Waitematā Local Board Standing Orders (7.8.1 Time) requires that each speaker during the public forum section of a meeting speak for three minutes.

8.       To respond to the local boards resolution pt c) it is proposed that SO 7.8.1 is amended from three minutes to five as per below and outlined in Attachment C.

7.8.1 Time

A period of up to 30 minutes, or such other time as the local board or any of its committees may determine, will be set aside for a public forum at the commencement of meetings of the local board which are open to the public.

 

Each speaker during the public forum section of a meeting may speak for five minutes.

 

Standing orders may be suspended on a vote of not less than 75 per cent of those present to extend the period of public participation or the period any speaker is allowed to speak.

 

This Standing Order does not apply to inaugural meetings and, where not appropriate, extraordinary meetings or a special consultative procedure.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Waitematā Local Board:

a)      approve the addition of Appendix E as a new appendix to the Waitematā Local Board Standing Orders

b)      adopt the amended Waitematā Local Board Standing Orders to include the amendment to 7.8.1 to extend the time allotted for each speaker from three minutes to five minutes, and to include Appendix E as per clause a).

Urgent decision to approve Waitematā Local Board feedback on Transforming Aotearoa New Zealand’s resource management system: Our future resource management system – Materials for Discussion

File No.: CP2022/00137

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To receive the local board feedback made under Urgent Decision on Transforming Aotearoa New Zealand’s resource management system: Our future resource management system – Materials for Discussion.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Government is undertaking comprehensive reform of the resource management system, and is seeking feedback on its proposed repeal of the RMA and enactment of three pieces of legislation as replacement: a Natural and Built Environments Act, a Spatial Planning Act, and a Managed Retreat and Climate Change Adaptation Act.

3.       The Ministry for the Environment has released engagement materials on this reform, and requested input on these materials from council, focusing primarily on the proposed Natural and Built Environments Act and Spatial Planning Act.

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

a.   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

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

 

5.       The Government’s adopted objectives for this reform focus on the following: protecting the natural environment, better enabling development, giving effect to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, better preparing for climate change and other natural risks, and improving efficiencies while retaining appropriate local democratic input.

6.       The Government intends for this engagement to provide an update to stakeholders on the progress of the resource management system, while also presenting a fuller view of the main components of the system. This includes responding to and building on feedback received to date and providing a general overview of the reform to audiences with little understanding or exposure to the work, to support preparation for submissions on the full Bill to a select committee in 2022.

7.       The discussion document, Transforming Aotearoa New Zealand’s resource management system: Our future resource management system – Materials for Discussion, can be found as Attachment C to this agenda report.

8.       The deadline for local board feedback to incorporate into the final Auckland Council submission was 14 February 2022. The next local board meeting was not scheduled until 15 February 2022. Accordingly, the urgent decision process was utilised.

Purpose of the report

1.       To provide a copy of the local board feedback that was made under Urgent Decision on the Hākaimangō-Matiatia Marine Reserve application.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       In January 2022, the Department of Conservation released its consultation document on Hākaimangō – Matiatia Marine Reserve (Northwest Waiheke Island) - Report in support of an application for an order in council for a marine reserve.

3.       The consultation seeks feedback primarily on the consideration of the rationale behind any view for the Environment and Climate Change Committee to either support, support with conditions/variations, or object to the application.

4.       A draft evaluation was shared with local boards on Wednesday 16 February 2022 to highlight staff areas of focus.

5.       In evaluating this application, Natural Environment Strategy staff were aware, and brought to  other elected members attention, that Waiheke Local Board passed resolutions in May 2021 (Resolution number WHK/2021/84) which stated that the Waiheke Local Board:

·    will consider marine protection proposals for the board’s endorsement if sought prior to an application being lodged with the relevant Minister.

·    will consider endorsing any marine proposals based upon the following factors:

tangata whenua views

alignment with endorsed local board policies and plans

specialist supporting advice

level of wider community involvement and support.

·    will seek further assurances from the Minister that the Ngāti Pāoa rāhui is being progressed to a timely conclusion.

·    will seek to understand progress on the ministerial proposal on which the local board and community may respond with respect to Sea Change and proposed protections for the waters of the Hauraki Gulf.

6.       Natural Environment Strategy staff are leading the development of the council’s submission which is due to the Department of Conservation by 20 March 2022.

7.       The deadline for local board feedback to incorporate into the final Auckland Council submission was 23 February 2022. The next local board meeting was not scheduled until 15 March 2022. Accordingly, the urgent decision process was utilised.
