Draft Auckland golf investment plan

           

Resolution number MT/2022/58

MOVED by Member P McGlashan, seconded by Member N Henry:  

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)        endorse the 3 key policy objectives:

             i)        continue to increase equity, sport and recreation by opening up publicly-owned golfland to all Aucklanders

            ii)        increased equity and participation by providing a broad range of golf experiences that attract and retain participants and services targeted at low participation groups

           iii)        best practice in ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation of publicly owned golf land

b)     endorse the four key shifts:

             i)        from ad hoc historic decisions of legacy councils to a robust investment framework that is focused on increasing benefits to all Aucklanders

            ii)        from publicly-owned land used exclusively for golfers to sport and recreation for all Aucklanders

           iii)        from asset-based investment in traditional mid-level (development) golf courses to a broad golf service offering across the network that appeal to a wider group of people

           iv)        from variable environmental management of publicly-owned golf land to best practice in ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation that meets clearly defined targets

c)        request that concerns from the golf sector about the draft plan not reflecting the current golf situation be resolved when finalising the Investment Plan

d)        acknowledge both Have Your Say and Peoples Panel engagement processes, totalling 1244 pieces of feedback and note also the consultation held with the sport and recreation sector, golf clubs and leaseholders, as well as the public forum presentation received today from Golf New Zealand

e)        note that there are 25 privately owned golf courses in Tāmaki Makaurau and 13 operating on council-owned or managed land, and that the Plan looks at the overall network offering of all of these courses combined for the Auckland region

f)         note the high number of courses with leases expired or expiring soon which will require additional resourcing to address in the short term once the Plan is adopted

g)        notes with concern that three of the publicly-owned golf courses have got further away from their environmental targets in recent years, and supports this being addressed urgently.

CARRIED

 

Note: Member D Burrows and Member D Alan requested that their dissenting votes be recorded.

Submission on Te mahere urutaunga ā-motu (tuhinga hukihuki): Draft National Adaptation Plan

 

Resolution number MT/2022/59

MOVED by Member N Henry, seconded by Deputy Chairperson C Makoare:  

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)        note that the local board recognise that the growing impacts of climate change will affect everyone, particularly our most vulnerable communities

b)        support Auckland Council’s draft submission on Te mahere urutaunga ā-motu (tuhinga hukihuki): Draft National Adaptation Plan (NAP), noting the following key points:

             i)       support Auckland Council preparing and dealing with climate impacts and risks in relation to the management of land and infrastructure, and other natural resources and physical resources, within the region

            ii)       support an interconnected, system wide approach that empowers local communities to adapt and prepare for the impacts of climate change

           iii)       support partnerships and co-governance arrangements with iwi/Māori to develop their own climate change response

           iv)       support the need for sufficient funding from central government to support local government to deliver the NAP actions/outcomes in Tāmaki Makaurau

            v)       support the need to develop further the focus on equity in the draft NAP, as those most vulnerable will be most impacted by climate change

           vi)       support developing options for home flood insurance properties most affected by climate change hazards, particularly for low-income house owners at high risk

 

Managed Retreat points to consider:

        vii)        support the need to prioritise managed retreat legislation and careful consideration in how it will be applied in practice and what this means for communities, property values, insurance, where and how relocation might occur.

       viii)        Support careful consideration around the relationship of the managed retreat legislation with other national direction, particularly where it may conflict with hazard management such as the National Policy Statement – Urban Development
