Te Kete Rukuruku programme – selection of tranche two sites for Māori naming

 

Resolution number PPK/2022/57

MOVED by Chairperson B Catchpole, seconded by Member F Auva'a:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      invite mana whenua to provide Māori names for 40 parks as detailed in Attachment B as part of Te Kete Rukuruku Tranche Two.

b)      request iwi consider one Māori name when covering contiguous sites should this be appropriate.

c)      endorse the Te Kete Rukuruku programme and process for Māori naming of parks and facilities, noting that it supports the visibility of te reo Māori and seeks to capture and tell the unique stories of Papakura and Tāmaki Makaurau.

d)      acknowledge the intent for Auckland Council to enter a mātauranga agreement that commits to upholding the correct use of Māori names and to use them only for purposes that have a community outreach or educational purpose (non-commercial use).

e)      note that it is expected the Māori names will be adopted by the local board for use as dual names to enrich the stories of our parks and support the Māori language to be visible, heard, spoken, and learned.

Local board feedback on the draft 2021 Regional Parks Management Plan

 

Note:  Changes were made to the original motion, amending clause b) and c) with the agreement of the meeting.

 

Resolution number PPK/2022/58

MOVED by Member F Auva'a, seconded by Member S Smurthwaite:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

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

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

i)       The board is conscious there is a visitor centre in the Waitākere Ranges and believes there should also be a visitor centre in the Hunua Ranges.

ii)      The board believes there is potential for tourism / economic development opportunity linking the Papakura train station to the Hunua trail and ultimately linking through to the Hauraki rail trail.  A Hunua Ranges Visitor Centre could sit nicely within this opportunity.

iii)     Remoteness of some of these parks would mean to cycle there would be problematic as there are no cycleways.  It can be quite dangerous to ride on the rural roads. The board would welcome safety improvements to rural roads to allow for safe cycling connectivity to regional parks and other cycling networks.

iv)     The board is mindful that the ceasing of grazing of stock on regional parks would create maintenance issues to keep the parks in a reasonable state.  Grazing keeps weeds and grass down. 

c)      appoint the Chairperson Brent Catchpole and Deputy Chairperson Jan Robinson to speak to the hearings panel on the boards feedback in b) on 9 May 2022.

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)    support the proposed Activities in the Road Corridor Bylaw 2022.

Transport Emissions Reduction Plan

 

Note:  Changes to the original motion, amending clause c) with the agreement of the meeting.

 

Resolution number PPK/2022/60

MOVED by Chairperson B Catchpole, seconded by Member F Auva'a:  

That the Papakura 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 feedback on:

i)       ways to dramatically reduce transport emissions in its local board area, or more broadly, while achieving broader wellbeing outcomes:

·       more innovative alternatives to bus routes, such as the Auckland Transport AT Local app pilot in Conifer Grove / Takanini / Papakura central area.

·       The board is an advocate for planning for good community outcomes as development occurs:  requiring developers to build the infrastructure for e-bike storage and charging, motorcycle parking, initiatives such as the city-hop car scheme - where residents can book and hire a vehicle for a period of time. 

·       The board understands that road pricing might be an option to change behaviour but it is concerned about the impact that it would have on disadvantaged communities, either socio-economically or disadvantaged with public transport options.

ii)      ways to increase uptake of walking, cycling and public transport for communities in its local board area:

·       Public transport needs to be convenient, regular and reliable.  The board understands the patronage of the Auckland Transport AT Local app pilot grew, despite being in a lockdown and on a red setting in the pandemic.  The board advocates that more of these types of services would be publicly supported.

·       The board is a strong advocate for a connected cycleway network in the south.  Make it easy, safe and desirable to cycle.

·       Separated cycleways, ideally off-road separated cycleways, are an advocacy point for the board.

·       Investment is required in shared cycleway pathways.  The recently opened southern path beside the motorway has been a huge success that should connect into the town centre and other local pathways.

·       The Papakura Local Board has a greenways/local pathway plan.  The board would welcome a discussion on how to include these pathways into the Auckland Transport Future Connect Cycleway and Micromobility Plan. 

·       Significant development is happening and proposed to happen in Papakura, Takanini and Drury.  Investment is required in the south now to build the infrastructure as development occurs, rather than trying to retrofit once development has occurred. 

·       It appears the current focus is on central Auckland.  We ask that an equitable / holistic approach be taken across Auckland and in particular, in the south.  There could potentially be partnership opportunities with local boards in the longer term. 

iii)     barriers that might prevent the implementation of a sustainable, healthy, accessible, and equitable transport system for Auckland, and potential solutions:

·       The board sees the main barrier being lack of budget and lack of public transport uptake.

·       The board would like to see consideration of alternatives that might achieve the same outcome but in a slightly different way.

·       A can-do attitude and innovative thinking from all involved.

iv)     ways to build public support for the initiatives that will be introduced as part of the Transport Emissions Reduction Plan:

·       As with most things the public generally want to understand the “what’s in it for them”.  The current price of petrol is probably fortuitous in that it will cause people to look for different options to travel to reduce costs.

·       One of the main issues raised around public transport is that it is slow, unreliable and doesn’t always go where people want it to go, nor does it serve all sectors of the community.
