Transport Emissions Reduction Plan

 

Resolution number MR/2022/48

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

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      receive the progress update provided on the Transport Emissions Reduction Plan

b)      note the scale of the challenge to meet Auckland’s transport emissions reduction target and that mode shift is the most powerful lever for reducing transport emissions

c)      provide the following feedback on:

Topic/Question

Comments

Ways to dramatically reduce transport emissions in the local board area, or more broadly, while achieving broader wellbeing outcomes

·         Support for private vehicle users to transition to low-emission vehicles.

·         Increased support for local economic development to attract more high-quality jobs to local town centres and reduce commuting distances.

·         Ensuring that necessary infrastructure (such as reliable high-speed broadband) is available to enable working from home for those able to do so.

·         Equitable provision of public transport and active mode infrastructure throughout Tamaki Makaurau to increase transport options.

·         Affordable public transport fares.

Ways to increase uptake of walking, cycling and public transport for communities in the local board area

·         Improve the frequency and convenience of bus linkages to our three train stations (Te Mahia, Manurewa and Homai).

·          Increase the provision of infrastructure at bus stops to make using them more attractive, such as bus shelters, seats, lighting, timetable information, real time signage, and safe crossing points.

·         Provide safe infrastructure for use of active mode transport, such as separated cycle paths and shared paths.

·         Plant street trees to provide shade for pedestrians and cyclists.

·          Increase availability of ride share services or on-demand shuttles to address gaps in public transport in lower-density areas.

·          Reduce public transport fares. This could be a reduction for all users or for targeted groups who are prioritised for increased public transport uptake.

Barriers that might prevent the implementation of a sustainable, healthy, accessible and equitable transport system for Auckland, and potential solutions

·         Mode shift is a significant challenge. Eighty-seven per cent of Manurewa residents travel to work in a car, truck or van. Only six per cent use public transport for their commute, and around one per cent use active modes of transport.

·         Significant improvements to public transport infrastructure and active mode infrastructure as set out above will provide potential solutions to change this pattern.

·         Transition from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric vehicles is likely to be problematic for our community. Many of our residents are in low-income households and are likely to be dependent on second-hand vehicle sales. The entry costs in switching from an ICE vehicle to an electric vehicle are likely to be prohibitively high for them.

·         In addition to this, changes to planning rules required under the National Policy Statement on Urban Development and Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other Matters) Amendment Act 2021 are likely to result in a reduction in availability of parking spaces at residential developments over time. Residents on lower incomes will be less likely to be able to afford dwellings with spaces to park and charge EVs.

·         Potential solutions for this could include providing targeted support for low-income groups and transport disadvantaged, such as subsidies for low-emissions vehicles and vehicle scrappage schemes to help low-income groups swap from older vehicles to cleaner models. Still, this would not address the issue of parking and charging EVs.

·         Increasing availability of solutions such as ride share services, on-demand shuttles or carsharing services to provide alternatives to individual vehicle usage would be preferable to subsidising replacement of ICE vehicles for EVs. However, we acknowledge that in some case individual vehicle usage may still be the preferred or only options (such as for mobile workers or tradespeople who need to transport tools with them).

Ways to build public support for the initiatives that will be introduced as part of the Transport Emissions Reduction Plan

·         Behaviour change programmes to educate and embed a cultural transition to low carbon transport including campaigns and activations aimed at reducing car use, increasing cycling, walking, e-mobility and public transport should be undertaken.

·         Face-to-face community engagement and empowering local champions to drive behaviour change should be part of any behaviour change programme.

Local board feedback on the draft 2021 Regional Parks Management Plan

 

Resolution number MR/2022/49

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

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      receive the public feedback on the draft 2021 Regional Parks Management Plan

b)      provide the following formal feedback on the draft 2021 Regional Park Management Plan to the hearings panel:

i)       providing and maintaining access to green spaces aligns with Outcome Three of the Manurewa Local Board Plan 2020, ‘Our people enjoy a choice of quality community spaces and use them often’

ii)     regional parks play an important role in providing access to natural and open spaces in the context of continuing population growth and intensification of development in Tāmaki Makaurau. Access to natural, undeveloped spaces such as regional parks is valuable for the health and wellbeing of people across the region

iii)   the board has previously requested that more consideration is given to how barriers to accessing regional parks for residents in low-income areas, such as lack of transportation, can be overcome. We are pleased to note the commitment in the draft plan to improving equity of access to regional park experiences and look forward to seeing how this will be implemented

iv)   the board supports planting more trees in regional parks to provide shade and shelter for park users and enhance park resilience to climate change, in accordance with the Urban Ngahere Strategy. This aligns with Outcome Six of the Manurewa Local Board Plan 2020, ‘Our natural environment is valued, protected and enhanced’

v)     the board supports the focus of the draft plan to support the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in park management. We welcome the incorporation of Te Ao Māori into the plan and support council partnering with mana whenua in managing regional parks. We note that this aligns with the aspirations expressed by mana whenua in their input into the draft plan. This also aligns with Outcome Two of the Manurewa Local Board Plan 2020, ‘We are proud of our strong Māori identity and thriving Māori community.’

Submission on central government’s proposals to transform recycling in Aotearoa

 

Resolution number MR/2022/50

MOVED by Member T Gorrie, seconded by Member G Murphy:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      provide the following feedback on the Ministry for the Environment’s consultation document: Te kapanoni i te hangarua: Transforming recycling discussion document to inform the council’s draft submission:

i)       the board supports the introduction of a container return scheme as outlined in the consultation document, providing that this service is simple and easy to use for consumers, and that there are mechanisms to ensure that retailers and manufacturers cannot create barriers to the uptake of the scheme

ii)     the board supports the proposed broad scope of beverage container material types to be included in the container return scheme, and the proposal that fresh milk in all packaging types is exempt from the scheme. We also support including a process where alternative beverage container packaging types could be considered on a case-by-case basis for inclusion within the scheme

iii)   the board agrees that the container return scheme should use a ‘mixed-return model’ with a high degree of mandated retail participation to ensure consumers have easy access to container return/refund points, as well as the opportunity for voluntary participation in the network by interested parties

iv)   the board supports setting a national standard for materials to be collected for household recycling at kerbside, provided that this is a minimum standard and that there is scope for additional, or targeted, services to be provided in Tamaki Makaurau

v)     the board recommends adding soft plastics to the standard set of materials to be collected for recycling in household kerbside collections as the availability of soft plastic recycling services expands around the country

vi)   the board agrees that, in addition to these kerbside policies, Aotearoa New Zealand should have a network of convenient and easy places where people can recycle items that cannot easily be recycled kerbside

vii)  the board agrees that all councils should offer a weekly kerbside food scraps collection to divert as many food scraps as possible from landfills. This should be accompanied by incentivisation of community gardens and composting services, particularly in multi-unit developments and apartment buildings

viii)    the board supports requiring businesses to separate food scraps from general waste, provided that this does not create a prohibitive financial burden for small businesses. We would support this requirement being phased in depending on access to suitable processing facilities, and consideration being given to providing support to help businesses reduce their food waste.
