MOVED by Deputy Chairperson A Fulljames, seconded by Member A Kinzett:  

That the Franklin Local Board:

c)      approve the proposal to use $19,605 unspent Hūnua Trail work programme budget, carry-over budget from the 2021/2022 work programme, on the refinement of the Hūnua Traverse marketing strategy, including the logo, to ensure that this aligns with both Destination Clevedon project brand-work and to ensure that the CCBA is enabled to commence work with Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki, Ngāti Tamaoho, Ngaati Whanaunga and Ngāti Paoa on this refinement without delay.

d)      note the board’s clear intention that the development of the Hūnua Traverse brand, marketing and local leverage programme should be delivered in a manner that actively engages Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki, Ngāti Tamaoho, Ngaati Whanaunga and Ngāti Paoa to ensure that these Iwi have the opportunity to influence the development of the Hūnua Traverse product and local outcomes in a way that reflects Te Ao Māori. The board requests that staff reflect this expectation in the development of the CCBA funding agreement (to be reviewed annually and reconfirmed through the annual work programme process).

e)      request Tātaki Auckland Unlimited (TAU) support the CCBA in the execution of the funding agreement and support Iwi to influence and leverage benefit from the development of the Hūnua Traverse as a tourism product through the Local Economic Broker programme and through support from specialist TAU departments, including those focussed on facilitating Māori outcomes.

Local board feedback on proposed supporting plan changes to accompany the Medium Density Residential Standards and National Policy Statement on Urban Development plan change

 

Craig Cairncross, Team Leader Planning Central/South was in attendance for this item.

 

Resolution number FR/2022/88

MOVED by Chairperson A Baker, seconded by Member A Kinzett:  

That the Franklin Local Board:

a)      note the content outlined in the agenda report relating to the development of draft plan changes and variations to the Auckland Unitary Plan to be considered for notification at the August 2022 Planning Committee meeting, together with the Intensification Planning Instrument on medium density residential standards and implementing Policies 3 and 4 of the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020

b)      provide the following general feedback to inform Planning Committee decision-making so that decisions reflect the needs of rural and isolated Aucklanders as well as those in urban areas:

i)           the National Policy Statement on Urban Development, and Auckland Council’s response approach does not adequately recognise that large parts of Auckland do not have public transport options independent of roads and cars

ii)          rural communities need to travel to public transport nodes by private vehicle so providing roads with sufficient width to enable parking is essential. Resident parking requirements and commuter requirements are likely to overlap in centres like Pukekohe, Beachlands,  Papakura, Takaanini, and in the near future, in Paerata and Drury

iii)        need to retain free public parking in town centres like Pukekohe, Waiuku and Beachlands so that locals outside a walking distance can visit and do business, so that locals are not forced to travel further distances in vehicles to shop and work i.e. large shopping centres that offer free private parking. This is an issue of local economic prosperity

iv)           suggest that development around transport hubs, in the city centre, metropolitan centres and town centres should require development of or improvements to footpath and cycling connections at the cost of the developers to encourage and improve walking and cycling and accessibility (for those in wheelchairs, using prams and other non-vehicle transport). Paths should be a minimum of 3m width and connect to existing pathways even if this is slightly beyond their development boundaries.

v)         the provision of electric vehicle charging is inadequate. The policy and Auckland’s response does not recognise that households outside of central urban centres are likely to need more than one vehicle per household if they are to access work, recreational facilities and social services, including healthcare. The approach relies too heavily on the market to provide adequate and practical charging facilities for an environment unsupported by alternative transport options

vi)        suggest fast charging requirements be included

vii)      concerned that the market will not adequately allow for sufficient, safe and practical alternative transport (bikes, mobility scooters, pushchairs etc) storage options, and this should be a planning requirement  i.e. that storage should be accessible, secure, under cover and out of sight.

c)    provide the following specific feedback on the agenda report to inform Planning Committee decision-making as outlined in the tabled document – Specific Franklin Local Board feedback on proposed supporting plan changes to accompany the Medium Density Residential Standards and National Policy Statement on Urban Development plan change
