That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

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

i)       support the ongoing commitment to sustainable farming practices, where farming remains a use of regional park land, noting:

                    B.   Other regional parkland may be more appropriately used for non-farming purposes, which would reduce carbon emissions

                    C.   Any farming undertaken should be used as an opportunity to support and extend best practice for agricultural sustainability, including mātauranga Māori

ii)     support work on making regional parks more accessible to Aucklanders, in particular by methods other than private car use such as public transport links, noting that a high proportion of carbon emissions for regional parks are related to transport

iii)    support the prohibition of ashes scattering in regional parks, aligning with the wishes of mana whenua, and request education on the inappropriateness and negative impacts of this practice

iv)    support the development of a regional trail network linking regional parks by cycle and pedestrian access

v)     request any planting plans prioritise planting alongside streams and coastlines to reduce run off and sedimentation into harbours

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

 

Resolution number PKTPP/2022/47

MOVED by Member B Shen, seconded by Deputy Chairperson J Turner:  

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)        note that the 2020 Puketāpapa Local Board Plan focuses on climate change and environmental protection as well as the participation of community members in decision making.

             i)      Outcome 2: Our people speak up and help shape our future

            ii)      Outcome 3: Our environment is protected and enhanced for present and future generations

b)     note the actions within the Local Board's "Becoming a low carbon community: An action plan" around reducing food waste.

c)     acknowledge that significant greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to the waste sector, with the vast majority being from solid waste (including landfill waste) as per the Ministry of Environment Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report.

d)     support a zero waste kaupapa as defined by the Zero Waste International Alliance and detailed in Auckland Council's Waste Minimisation and Management Plan 2018.

e)     support the proposals in the Ministry for Environment consultation document "Te panoni i te hangarua: Transforming recycling"

                i)       container return scheme

               ii)       improvements to household kerbside recycling

             iii)       separation of business food waste

f)      support the moves to increase the uptake of recycling and the reduction of food waste to landfill.

g)     note concern the Puketāpapa’s area lack of a community recycling centre within Auckland Council's Resource Recovery Network this creates an equity issue on the access to network-linked waste reduction services.  Therefore extra consideration should be given to the accessibility and community-involvement aspects of these initiatives for the Puketāpapa area.

h)     note that the not-for-profit groups operating locally to be a key part of these proposed initiatives and seek co-benefits that would bolster their activities such as incentives and income from the container return scheme.

i)       strongly suggest that the container return scheme to be as simple to use as possible and easily accessible to all, including the payment methods.

j)       support the definition of the beverage container for its focus on reducing litter and increasing recycling.

k)     encourage local businesses, large and small, to take back containers as a part of a stewardship approach to their products

l)       support the standardisation around the types of containers that can be recycled to:

i)          reduce confusion and provide clearer messaging

ii)         include private waste operators so all Aucklanders know what can be and what cannot be recycled.

m)    request that these nationwide standards be linked to the Aotearoa's capacity to recycle (as opposed to being sent overseas) and this capacity to recycle is monitored regularly.

n)     suggest that more materials to be added to the standard recyclables as capacity is developed in accordance with the proposal's criteria:

i)          sustainable end markets

ii)         end markets solutions are circular and minimise environmental harm

iii)       viable processing technologies

iv)       processing by both automated and manual material recovery facilities

v)         no adverse effects on local authorities, including financial

vi)       supply chains contribute appropriately to recovery and end-of-life solutions for their products

o)     support the inclusion of businesses in reducing waste, particularly organic waste.

p)     note that extra support may be needed to build up the capacity and knowledge of businesses to partake in waste reduction practices and the proposed requirements.

Transport Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP)

 

Resolution number PKTPP/2022/48

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Turner, seconded by Chairperson J Fairey:  

That the Puketāpapa 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)         support the development of the TERP and encourage continued work and resource on this by both AT and Auckland Council

d)        note the board’s support for lower-emissions travel, including the Greenways network, support for cheaper public transport, increased pedestrian safety and support for groups working in the active transport space

e)         support the intention to challenge ‘status quo bias’ and to reduce friction for driving alternatives

f)          notes that the board is working with Auckland Transport and community groups to improve cycling as a mode share to schools. This is a non-infrastructure project, but will require changes in the future to improve access for all.

g)        The Auckland Light Rail (ALR) project needs to be completed much faster, and ideally cheaper. Although this is beyond AT and Auckland Council’s remit, the board believes a priority should be connecting Mt Roskill to the Airport precinct, the second most common destination for the board area. Linking into the rail network is a must-do.

h)        the board supports the use of low-cost trials to test ideas, done by working with the community and other providers. The immediate focus needs to be on providing a safe access to schools.

i)          support cheaper public transport for those on Community Services Cards, students, Under 25’s as an immediate start, with a move toward fully funded public transport

j)          request far more focus on cross-town routes as part of the Connected Communities work. Greenlane and Mt Albert Roads should both also be free-flowing, multi use roads as proposed for those corridors in the current work programme

k)         acknowledge the difficulty Auckland Transport faces in implementing projects that will reduce friction for active transport and public transport, and offers its support for proposed projects in our area. The board suggests working with Central Government to fund behaviour change campaigns, but only once infrastructure is built. Promoting Active Transport will have minimal effect when the roads are dangerous.

l)          request that road resurfacing is seen as an opportunity to implement positive street changes, rather than restoring as a like-for-like. It is bad financial management to rebuild roads without looking at how they can be improved.
