Notice of Motion - Chairperson Adele White - Anzac Traffic Management Plans

 

Resolution number HW/2022/79

MOVED by Chairperson A White, seconded by Deputy Chairperson J Spiller:   

That the Howick Local Board:

a)        note the significant cost relative to the ANZAC Day and other community events required by the associated Traffic Management Plan (TMP)

b)        note that other potential community events do not proceed at times because of the financial demands of traffic management and Traffic Management Plans.

d)        note the ANZAC parade takes the same route requiring the same management year on year, merely requiring a change of date.

e)        note the significance of this important event to current and returned service people, and the wider community; and acknowledge with respect the contribution and suffering of all those from Australia and New Zealand, who have served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

f)         request that Auckland Transport provide a detailed cost breakdown of what constitutes a TMP for the ANZAC Parades for Howick RSA

g)        request that Auckland Transport investigate where costs can be reduced in the development of TMPs for ANZAC Day Parades in Howick

h)        request that Auckland Transport investigate the overall cost of traffic management provided to Local Boards and whether Traffic Management Companies could charge the Auckland Council group a lower rate because of the volume of management plans.

i)         recommend that Auckland Transport develop one standardised template for TMPs that may be replicated without additional cost year on year.

j)         thank Auckland Transport for their support for the ANZAC Day Parade in Howick

k)        request that this Notice of Motion be forwarded to all local boards, the Mayor, all Councillors and the Board of Auckland Transport for their information.

Urgent Decision - National Adaptation Plan

 

Resolution number HW/2022/80

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Spiller, seconded by Member B Burns:  

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      endorses the draft council submission on the draft National Adaptation Plan in principle.

 

b)      provides the following feedback to the Governing Body on the draft National Adaptation Plan as follows:

 

i)         Auckland has a massive coastline with large harbours, with estuaries and rivers and streams feeding into them. All of these coastlines are extremely vulnerable to erosion and council don’t have the financial resources to manage and mitigate the associated risk. It is absolutely essential that central government recognise this and provide significant additional funding to assist with erosion prevention and for response to damage caused by events.

 

ii)        central government is compelling Auckland Council to enable massive infill housing with changes to legislation, including changes to the RMA. This has meant a big loss of urban trees, large additional non-permeable surface areas (concrete and asphalt paving instead of grass and garden areas) and has put additional strain on other infrastructure, notable storm water and wastewater systems. Government needs to consider these impacts and provide subsidy funding to assist with remediation. It also needs to consider how the RMA could be changed to give better protection to urban trees on privately owned properties.

 

iii)       the control of organisations that are responsible for providing potable water to citizens should remain at a local level, central government could provide loans or subsidies for bringing water infrastructure up to scratch instead of assuming ownership of assets that are locally owned and managed.

 

iv)       consideration should be given to future coastal development proposals such as canal waterways where the adjoining land-based housing is at risk from sea level changed. Managed retreat is obviously being considered so is it wise to sanction additional coastal waterway developments when they will soon be at risk.

Local board feedback on the council’s preliminary response to the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 and the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other Matters) Amendment Act 2021

 

Resolution number HW/2022/81

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Spiller, seconded by Member B Kendall:  

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      note the council’s preliminary response to the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 and the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other Matters) Amendment Act 2021

b)      note the feedback received from Aucklanders on the council’s preliminary response during the three-week public consultation in April and May 2022

c)      endorse the following feedback as the local board’s response to the council’s preliminary response, to be considered by the Planning Committee in preparation of the proposed intensification plan change for notification in August 2022:

i)     do not support the proposed walkable catchment of 1200 metres from the edge of the city centre, noting the following:

 

A)      a 1200 metre walk is a considerable distance for a great many people to cope with. Taking into account the demographic and topographic elements of a good deal of Auckland, the board considers that a 1000 metre walkable catchment should be the maximum.

 

    ii)       do not support the proposed walkable catchment of 800 metres from the edge of the metropolitan centres, noting the following:

 

A)      for newer modern well designed and sited town centres this distance should be acceptable however for older centres we feel 500 metres may be more appropriate.

 

iii)        do not support the proposed walkable catchment of 800 metres around rapid transit stops, noting the following:

 

A)      this distance may be too far for many considering the demographic make-up of many parts of Auckland coupled with the region’s topography.

 

iv)        support the proposal to apply the Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings Zone to residential areas up to around 400 metres from large town centres with high accessibility, noting the following

 

A)      the board supports the 400 metres around LARGE TOWN CENTRES terrace housing but note that 6 storey apartment blocks may not be desirable.

 

B)       the two housing types covered here are very disparate and the board doesn’t agree the same rules should apply to both as of right.

 

C)      6 storey should be considered as a discretionary activity rather than as ‘as of right’ and should also be of a limited notification for resource consent.

 

v)        support the proposal to apply the Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings zone to residential areas up to around 200 metres from small town centres or large local centres with high accessibility

 

vi)        support the proposal to include special character areas of high quality as a qualifying matter, noting the following:

 

A)       the history of Auckland and its associated architecture, plus areas of environmental significance, are important to the vast majority of Aucklanders so there should be enduring protection for these special character areas.

 

B)      conditionally supports the proposed residential special character areas of high quality that have been identified. The board believes that there may be other areas that have not been considered so feel that this needs further investigation and consultation with Aucklanders, particularly those with wide knowledge of Auckland’s rich history and built heritage.

 

 

vii)       conditionally supports the proposed business special character areas of high quality that have been identified, noting the following.

 

A)      that Howick Town Centre is identified in the Auckland Unitary Plan as a Business Special Character area, but the board would like more information on other proposed areas outside the Howick Local Board area.

 

viii)      support the proposal to include areas in urban Auckland with long-term significant infrastructure constraints as a qualifying matter, noting the following:

 

A)      the board is aware of serious infrastructure deficiencies in the Howick local board area, notably storm and wastewater issues, which are causing hardship to some residents and making it difficult for further development. The board understands that this is symptomatic of many parts of Auckland and these shortcomings need to be addressed before intensification occurs in these places.

 

ix)        with regards to other qualifying matters, notes the following points for input:

 

A)      the reference to the Stockade Hill viewshaft, which is in the local board area, and applaud the earlier decision to establish and gazette this viewshaft. The board consider this to be ‘untouchable’ and trust that this protection is now cemented in place for posterity.

 

B)      the board also believes that the areas of Howick’s northern slopes that previously enjoyed protection under the former RH7 and HH7 zoning should be considered ‘qualifying matters’ and if these zones are not currently protected by an overlay, then this should be put in place, or the same outcome effected by whatever are now considered the appropriate mechanisms.

 

x)      endorse the views that were provided by Howick local board residents.

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

 

Resolution number HW/2022/82

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Spiller, seconded by Member K Bungard:  

That the Howick 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)      supports the collective transport feedback outlined in the report generally, however noting the following:

       i)       the Howick Local Board does not support the blanket approach to reducing speed limits on (as it appears) the majority of urban roads to 30 kph. This will only serve to slow up travel times, increase driver frustration and place additional wear and tear on vehicles that aren’t designed to travel at speeds this slow. Other measures such as physical constraints and additional policing should be used to control speeding vehicle hotspots, which are not evident on every single street in the city.

ii)       the board strongly support the need to provide for Electric Vehicle charging for private vehicles, particularly for new housing builds, as it is easier to install this at the time of construction rather than as a retro-fit.

iii)      there is a need for secure temporary storage for bicycles and e-bikes around main centres to further encourage use of this mode of transport.

c)      support the inclusion of as many notable trees as possible in the schedule of protected trees otherwise more and more of these will be lost to intensification. On the one hand council is saying it needs to reduce its carbon footprint while on the other it is saying by way of provisions in the Unitary Plan that it is okay to fell trees in the interests of providing more housing. There needs to be balance to the equation and to achieve this there is a need to provide protection for trees in general, not just notable trees.

d)      note that significant heritage elements across the Auckland region must be included as qualifying matters so they are protected and maintained to keep the historic thread of Auckland’s development over time ‘alive’ and accessible to all people.

Local board feedback on Auckland Transport's Draft Parking Strategy (2022)

 

Resolution number HW/2022/83

MOVED by Member B Kendall, seconded by Deputy Chairperson J Spiller:  

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      provide feedback, taking into consideration their community’s feedback, on the Draft Auckland Parking Strategy (2022).

i)       with regards to a tiered approach to parking management, notes the following:

A)          that this approach will only work once viable public transport alternatives are put forward. It is all very well to say people can walk 800 – 1200 metres to access public transport but the reality for many is somewhat different with physical mobility constraints, heavy shopping items to take home, and tight time frames for many people who lead busy lives.

B)          there is increasing risk to people’s safety given the increasing crime rate, drive by shootings, muggings and the like which make people reluctant to be out in public for longer periods than necessary, particularly in the hours of darkness.

C)          a concern for many is being exposed to extreme weather conditions – who wants to have to walk 1200 metres in a howling gale, searing heat or torrential rain, conditions that are becoming more and more commonplace as our climate changes.

                        ii)      with regards to the Strategic Transport Network, notes the following:

A)     there appears to be conflict with this policy and other comments in the draft parking strategy which says priority should be given to delivery vehicles. Where there is no off-street parking provided, and the kerbside space is converted to traffic use, where are vehicles such as delivery trucks, emergency vehicles and social service vehicles supposed to park to carry out their functions? It is obvious that over time there will be significantly less off-street parking provided by developers under the current planning requirements so there is obvious disconnect between council / Auckland Transport’s desired outcomes and the daily realities of life in Auckland.

B)      the board also challenges the statement that converting street side parking into bus lanes will be good for businesses by bringing more customers. This does not stack up for a number of reasons; there won’t be bus stops outside every affected business so the convenience level drops markedly, customers need their own vehicles to transport bulky or heavy items that can’t be taken on buses, and customers do not want to have to cross roads and wait to get a bus for the return trip home once they’ve completed their shopping. It is fairly evident that the authors of the parking strategy have never contemplated their proposals from the perspective of a business owner.

iii)     with regards to policies for parking management throughout Auckland, notes the following:

    A)      given that Central Government continues to provide for the importation of motor vehicles and derives a significant direct and indirect tax take from them it would seem unreasonable that at the same time they appear to want to limit their use by artificial means. Local government in Auckland is happy to gain income from the regional fuel tax, parking fees and tolls so it is essential that adequate parking is provided for private and business vehicles otherwise the city will be the worse off in the long run. Until suitable, convenient and efficient public transport is available to all citizens, there is simply no option other than to commute by private vehicles. Maybe there needs to be consideration given to more multi-level parking buildings in relevant positions around the city so there is greatly increased capacity without taking up a greater footprint.

   B)       new buildings should be required to provide off-street parking access for electric vehicle charging and also provision of some mobility parking.

 

C)        as developers are no longer required to provide off-street parking in general, consideration should be given to making roads wider in any greenfield developments so that there is the capability for on-street parking in such a way that this doesn’t impair the ability of emergency vehicles to transit along roads to where they are required.

 

D)        as housing intensification takes place around major transport hubs planning needs to allow for more park and ride facilities. This will encourage greater use of public transport.

E)        the greatest number of comments we get is about the push to get citizens into electric vehicles while at the same time not making adequate provision for convenient access to charging ports. If developers are not required to provide off-street parking, then electric vehicles must park on the road. This then necessitates the requirement for electric vehicle charging stations nearby to eliminate the need for extension cords running across footpaths and creating a hazard. How is this being managed? The parking problem will be exacerbated further for both internal combustion engine and electric vehicles if there is no roadside parking or off-street parking available in future so there needs to be some balance to this thinking.

 

F)        if citizens are to be encouraged to cycle there needs to be secure, discreetly concealed storage facilities at destinations around town where their bicycles can be locked up, so they are not easily subject to theft.

G)       parking charges where applicable should be reasonable and not at a level that makes parking unaffordable for people to get around to carry out their business. Fees should be set at a level that reflects cost recovery plus a small margin, not set so high that they are ‘revenue gathering’.

 

H)        parking around schools needs to be provided and be safe and accessible. Again, with violent crime on the increase parents will do their utmost to ensure the safety of their children.

 

I)         Council community facilities parking must be maintained to encourage use of libraries, gyms, swimming pools and leisure centres. This is part of ensuring a community’s well-being which is something that is high on the priorities of local boards in general.
