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

 

Resolution number MR/2022/88

MOVED by Member K Penney, seconded by Chairperson J Allan:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

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

i)       the board notes the increased importance of having a parking strategy due to the removal of minimum parking requirements for developments under the National Policy Statement on Urban Development

ii)     the board notes that the parking strategy supports other key Auckland Transport and Auckland Council strategies in reducing congestion and emissions

iii)   the board notes there is an inequity to the implementation of these strategies in Manurewa while public transport provision does provide a practical alternative to private car use

Tiered approach to parking management

iv)   the board supports taking a tiered approach to parking management

v)     the board notes that most roads in Manurewa are ‘Tier 1’ roads and, as such, are expected to have little or no changes to management or supply of parking under this strategy

vi)   the board supports using Comprehensive Parking Management Plans to plan any large-scale parking changes for Tier 2 and 3 roads, provided that these plans take into account community feedback and local board input

Strategic Transport Network

vii)  the board supports repurposing of parking on the Strategic Transport Network for projects to improve the safety or movement of people (such as bus lanes and separated off-road cycle lanes), noting that the stretch of the Great South Road between Beaumont’s Bridge and the Takanini Interchange is a priority area for this to be carried out

Parking Policies

viii) the board supports reinvestment of surplus parking revenue in the transport system to deliver strategic objectives

ix)   parking charges should not be used as a purely revenue gathering tool, and should never be set to maximise revenue

x)     the board does not support charging for parking at Park and Ride facilities as this discourages the use of public transport and disadvantages low-income public transport users, increasing the inequity of public transport provision

xi)   if charging is to be introduced at Park and Ride facilities, this should only be considered where provision of feeder services (buses or on-demand ride shares) and cycling infrastructure is sufficient to give customers a practical alternative to using the Park and Ride

Other feedback

xii)  the board requests that Auckland Transport include in its advocacy to Government rule changes that would allow local authorities to restrict parking of trucks on residential streets and outside schools or community facilities with high traffic volumes, where this creates health and safety risks for other road users

xiii) the board requests that Auckland Transport undertake further development of its policy prohibiting parking on berms to account for:

A)      the removal of minimum parking requirements for developments under the National Policy Statement on Urban Development

B)      the need to increase street tree planting under the Urban Ngahere strategy

C)      any effects on road safety for active mode users.

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 MR/2022/89

MOVED by Chairperson J Allan, seconded by Member K Penney:  

That the Manurewa 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)      provide 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)       the board remains opposed to the increased intensification rules imposed by the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 and the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other Matters) Amendment Act 2021. We do not agree with requiring intensive development across the city regardless of infrastructure provision, and without due consideration of the views of local communities. These changes will increase housing intensification in areas that were never planned for such high density, and which lack the infrastructure to cope with it. While we accept that Auckland Council is required to apply these new rules, our feedback below on how council proposes to apply these rules should not be taken as an endorsement of the rules themselves

Requirements for intensification

ii)     the board supports in principle the council’s proposed walkable catchment definitions. Development of areas where zoning is to be increased due to this process should ideally follow a staged approach. This would mean that properties closest to the city / metropolitan / town centre or rapid transit stop are developed first, then as higher density is achieved, development is progressed further out within the walkable catchment

iii)   the board requests that Auckland Council considers rezoning the area of Light Industrial Zoning on Great South Road adjacent to Te Mahia train station to Mixed Use Zoning as part of this plan change. We believe that this would allow for developments that would be more compatible with the residential zoning in that area, particularly as the residential zoning will be becoming more intensive as part of this plan change

Council-identified qualifying matters

iv)   the board supports the proposal to include special character areas of high quality as a qualifying matter. Special character area rules will need to be written in a way that preserves the current Auckland Unitary Plan zoning rules for these areas. Otherwise, the special character of these areas will be eroded over time, and would also result in the removal of large numbers of non-protected trees from private property due to development

v)     the board supports the proposed residential special character areas of high quality that have been identified. The Hillpark Special Character Area was included in the Auckland Unitary Plan through a process that included consultation with the local community, and we are pleased to see it is proposed to be retained

vi)   the board supports the proposed business special character areas of high quality that have been identified, noting that there are no business special character areas in Manurewa

vii)  reverse sensitivity effects at the interface of special character areas with more intensive zones will require careful management in the zone rules if the preservation of special character is to be meaningful. Proximity to a special character area should be included as a qualify matter to ensure there is a gradual increase in the height of developments as distance from the special character area increases

viii) the board supports the proposal to include areas in urban Auckland with long-term infrastructure constraints as a qualifying matter

ix)   provision of public open space will become increasingly important as intensification takes effect in our suburban areas. The board requests that this is reflected by including ‘lack of public open space provision’ as a qualifying matter

x)     the board requests that Significant Ecological Areas are included as a qualifying matter, as protection of our Urban Ngahere and bush remnants should be prioritised even as intensification increases.

C)          the board supports the proposed changes to access standards, as follows:

1)           including the number of dwellings as an alternative trigger for determining vehicle access width standards

2)           changes to tiered access requirements to ensure that pedestrian access and safety are prioritised, and that the efficiency and convenience of vehicle access for all user groups are improved

3)           changes to residential access standards to prioritise pedestrian safety and access, and cater for people of all ages and abilities as part of a well-functioning urban environment

4)           introducing lighting standards for vehicle access, car parking areas, private pedestrian access and for connecting elements such as stairs or ramps

5)           requirements for applicants to demonstrate how ongoing maintenance and operational costs and responsibilities for landowners will be managed

ii)      Notable trees - Schedule 10

A)          the board supports updating the Auckland Unitary Plan notable tree schedule 10 and adding new notable trees

iii)     Historic heritage - Schedule 14

A)          the board supports updating the historic heritage places listed in Schedule 14 of the Auckland Unitary Plan where the criteria and thresholds for scheduling are satisfied, noting that there are currently no proposed additions within the Manurewa local board area 

iv)     Variations to incomplete plan changes

A)      the board notes the required variations to incomplete plan changes to incorporate the Government’s Medium Density Residential Standards, further noting that none of the listed plan changes are within the Manurewa local board area.

Community Facilities Network Plan revised Action Plan (2022)

 

Resolution number MR/2022/91

MOVED by Chairperson J Allan, seconded by Member K Penney:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      receive the revised Community Facilities Network Plan Action Plan (2022), provided in Attachment A

b)          note that action 158 is the board’s One Local Initiative project, developing a multiuse community space and upgrading sports facilities in Manurewa War Memorial Park, and that this action is ‘Not programmed subject to funding availability’

c)           the board requests that Governing Body considers decoupling the elements of action 158 to allow for components of the redevelopment of Manurewa War Memorial Park to be delivered as funding becomes available

d)          note Key Issue 4 in the Long-term Plan 2021-31 that sets a direction for community services to be delivered differently and with less reliance on delivery through council facilities

e)           in conjunction with action 164 (understanding community services currently provided by council and third parties), request additional actions and information in the Action Plan that outline how Key Issue 4 of the Long-term Plan 2021-31 will be implemented and facility-based services transitioned over the next few years with a focus on providing sufficient notice and support to manage the impact on customers

f)            note the decision of the Governing Body to allocate increased local board decision-making over local community services (GB/2021/137) and the need for high quality information, analysis and advice for local boards to consider appropriate service levels for their communities in the future

g)          notes action 162 in the Action Plan which currently states ‘investigate how to approach local and regional planning for community services taking into account delegated decision making’ is not currently programmed

h)          request wording in action 162 be amended to ‘allocated’ decision making rather than ‘delegated’ decision making, the description further clarified to ensure the focus is on providing information and advice to local boards on community service needs and priorities in local areas, and request this action be prioritised so the information is available in time for Local Board Plan development in 2023

i)            request that each action in the Plan clarify the respective governance role of local boards and the Governing Body so staff and the public understand the shared governance responsibilities in council facilities and community services provision      

j)            request the Community Facilities Network Plan which sets the strategic direction for the Action Plan be reviewed from a first principles basis to incorporate significant strategic shifts in council policy and planning since 2015 in areas such as shared governance, Māori outcomes, climate action, and improving equity of access, and funding of, community services.
