6.1

Acknowledgement – Ken Prebble

 

Ken was the second principal appointed to lead Onehunga High School in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. “Ken was a firm believer that learning and the environment were interlinked and much of this work still stands proudly today. Teaching staff were valued, students were celebrated and work was done to allow a community of learning to flourish through the student voice. His legacy as a principal of a strong moral compass is evidenced in the many staff and students who have stayed connected to him since his retirement in 1989.”  This is quoted from Onehunga High School September 2023 as I could not put it better in words myself.

 

Resolution number MT/2023/115

Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2024

 

Resolution number MT/2023/121

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson D Burrows, seconded by Member D Allan:  

That the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board:

a)         support the strategic priorities identified in the draft GPS 2024, ensuring there is alignment to the Auckland Plan 2050.

b)         support in principle initiatives that reduce the movement of freight through the city centre, reduce net carbon emissions from transport activities and support continued and sustainable economic growth.

c)         oppose the use of the existing Avondale to Southdown Rail Corridor designation which was set 80 years ago and is no longer compatible for heavy rail alongside the current and future residential and community usage, noting:

                                 i.Auckland Light Rail determined that SH20 was the preferred route over the residential Onehunga KiwiRail designation due to significant community feedback, ground conditions and the local environment, finding the SH20 providing a shorter, more direct route reducing travel times and has less impact on local roads.

                                ii.the community have clearly voiced their opposition and concerns on noise, vibration, visual and long-term community impacts to use of the residential Onehunga KiwiRail designation, with 2,289 comments received through the 2023 Light Rail consultation

d)         recommend central government remove the residential Onehunga KiwiRail designation for the Avondale Southdown connection to give the Onehunga community certainty that there will not be significant disruption of their community through this designation

e)         recommend the State Highway 20 corridor for the Avondale to Southdown link and request that the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board and Onehunga community are brought to the table for early discussions to ensure the project can be delivered with the least impact on our community.

f)           support in principle level crossing removal to increase safety and frequency of trains, noting:

                                 i.Overarching principle should not be removal of level crossings if it severely impacts the needs of all road users including cyclists, pedestrians and cars

                                ii.future engagement with the community is required, so that affected residents understand the impact proposed changes may have on the roading network and are able to provide feedback for consideration
