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 MT/2022/69

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson C Makoare, seconded by Member T Woodcock:  

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki 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 on 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)           support the proposed walkable catchment of 1200 metres from the edge of the city centre;

ii)         support the proposed walkable catchment of 800 metres from the edge of the metropolitan centres;

iii)        support the proposed walkable catchment of 800 metres around train or bus stations;

iv)        support prioritising accessible and walkable catchments, noting that walkability is not only a function of distance but is also affected by other aspects of the street environment, such as lighting, safety, shade/shelter and footpath quality;

v)         request a focus on the wider aspects of healthy streets within the walkable catchments as defined by distance;

vi)        support the proposed 400 metre Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings zones around large town centres;

vii)      support the proposed 200 metre Terrace Housing and Apartment Buildings zones around small town centres or large local centres with high accessibility;

viii)     note that proposed plan changes for large parts of Onehunga were not publicly consulted on due to Light Rail Corridor investigations and that communities in Onehunga may now be disengaged from this engagement process, not aware of  potential impacts of this plan change on their neighbourhoods;

ix)        note that Onehunga West and Onehunga East residential Special Character Areas are of high-quality special character value with 77% and 86% of individual properties scoring either 5 or 6 respectively, and anticipate that these special character areas will be included as qualifying matters in the proposed plan change regardless of where future rapid-transit stops will be located;

x)         note that Onehunga business Special Character Area has been identified as a qualifying matter and anticipate this Special Character Area being retained to a full extent in the proposed plan change;

xi)        note that Eke Panuku’s urban regeneration work in Onehunga intends to honour and highlight local heritage alongside regeneration and development of higher-intensity housing;

xii)      request that additional resource be allocated to plan change consultation in Onehunga and areas under the Light Rail Corridor once proposed plan changes are finalised;

xiii)     request that public consultation feedback from the notification period is presented to local boards with an additional opportunity for local board feedback;

xiv)     support the proposal to include areas in urban Auckland with long-term significant infrastructure constraints as a qualifying matter.

 

d)      delegate authority to Chair M Meredith or Deputy Chair C Makoare as an alternate to speak at the 30 June planning committee meeting.
