Local board feedback on proposals for fees and charges for the financial year 2024/2025

 

Resolution number MR/2023/180

MOVED by Chairperson G Murphy, seconded by Member R McLean:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      whakarite / provide the following feedback on the proposed changes to local fees and charges consultation content which will be consulted as part of the 10-year Budget 2024-2034 for the following:

i)       Phase two of Active Communities fees and charges review

Membership Fees

A)          The alignment of legacy memberships to current rates over 3 years

The board does not support standardisation of fees and charges across Auckland where this will result in higher fees for residents in low-income communities such as Manurewa. We believe that the setting of fees for services should be done with an equity lens, and that fees should be lowered for communities of greatest need.

If fees need to be standardised, this should be done gradually over several years to minimise the impacts on users. We would prefer that higher fees be charged to users of Manurewa facilities who do not reside in the Manurewa local board area and that the fees for Manurewa residents are kept at a lower level.

B)          The introduction of a new Auckland wide membership option that allows access to all Auckland Council Pool & Leisure sites regardless of operator

The board supports this proposal.

Aquatic Entrance Fees

C)          The introduction of baseline aquatic entrance fees for all Auckland Council Pool and Leisure sites

The board does not support standardisation of fees and charges across Auckland where this will result in higher fees for residents in low-income communities such as Manurewa. We believe that the setting of fees for services should be done with an equity lens, and that fees should be lowered for communities of greatest need.

If fees need to be standardised, this should be done gradually over several years to minimise the impacts on users. We would prefer that higher fees be charged to users of Manurewa facilities who do not reside in the Manurewa local board area and that the fees for Manurewa residents are kept at a lower level.

The application of the proposed entrance fee for spectators will need to be clearly defined in policy to make it clear that it does not apply to parents supervising children.

D)          An increase to the concessionary discount from 15 per cent to 40 per cent

The board supports this proposal.

Swim School Fees

E)          An increase to swimming lesson prices closer to market rates whilst maintaining accessible pricing for Aucklanders

The board is concerned about the effect of large increases to swimming lesson prices on low-income communities such as Manurewa, given that water safety and drowning are significant issues for our community.

F)          A new 30 per cent discount for Community Service Card Holders and their dependents

The board supports this proposal.

G)         A new 40 per cent discount for those with special needs that require private lessons

The board supports this proposal.

Recreation Fees

H)          An increase to holiday programme and OSCAR (before and after school care) fees

The board supports this proposal based on advice from staff that the increased fees would not result in increased cost to lower income users because central Government subsidies are also increasing.

I)            To simplify recreation term programme pricing

The board supports this proposal based on advice from staff that the increased fees would not result in increased cost to lower income users because central Government subsidies are also increasing.

ii)      Phase one of Venue Hire and Bookable Spaces review

A)      To adjust fees in line with Hire Fee Framework July 2014.

The board notes that there are no significant increases in fees for venue hire and bookable spaces proposed for the Manurewa Local Board area.

Katoa, Ka Ora - draft Auckland Speed Management Plan 2024-2027

 

Resolution number MR/2023/181

MOVED by Chairperson G Murphy, seconded by Member R McLean:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      note the summary of public consultation feedback received on the proposed Katoa, Ka Ora speed limit changes (Attachment D of the agenda report) 

b)      note AT’s responses to previous local board queries about Katoa, Ka Ora (Attachment A of the agenda report) 

c)      note AT’s legal obligations under the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022 (Rule) and that the Rule requires best efforts to complete safe and appropriate speed limit setting near schools by 2027 

d)      note that since June 2020, when the programme started, road deaths reduced 30 per cent in the areas where speed limits have changed  

e)      provide the following feedback regarding the location and scope of the proposed speed limit changes identified for this local board area (Attachment C and Attachment E of the agenda report) 

i)             the board notes that using variable rather than fixed speed limits was one of the most suggested improvements to the safe speed zone proposals from submitters in Manurewa. We are in support of using variable 30km/h speed limits rather than fixed 30km/h speed limits on roads near schools wherever this is possible, as there is generally no need for roads to be subject to lower speed limits outside of times when children are likely to be travelling to or from school. However, we- also note that implementing Waka Kotahi’s Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022 will mean that fixed 30km/h speed limits will need to be set on the roads near most schools

ii)           notwithstanding the preference expressed in e) i) above, the board supports the proposed speed limit changes identified for this local board area, given the requirements of the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022 to implement such changes

iii)         the board supports the use of variable 30km/h speed limit changes for schools on main/high-traffic roads such as Browns Road, Russell Road, Alfriston Road, Porchester Road, Grande Vue Road, Everglade Drive, and Kerrs Road, as included in this proposal

iv)         the board requests that the fixed 30km/h speed limit on Weymouth Road south of Roscommon Road, which was set as part of phase three of the Safe Speeds programme be reviewed. Using a fixed 30km/h speed limit for this road is inconsistent with the approach taken to other main/high traffic roads such as those listed in e) ii) above. The board believes that the appropriate speed limit for this road would be either a 40 or 50km/h fixed speed limit, with variable 30km/h speed limits as appropriate on sections of the road near to schools

v)           with respect to the options presented in Attachment C of the report, regarding the proposed speed limits in Wattle Downs, the board prefers Option 2, extending the proposed 40 km/h to also cover the full length of Carnoustie Drive, and Muirfield Street. We agree with the feedback from residents that the key feeder roads in this area should have a higher speed limit. We note that both options include variable 30km/h limits at the frontage of Clayton Park School at school times

f)       support speed limit review near schools that do not have current or proposed safe speed limits including Destiny School  

g)      note that central Government policy regarding the setting of speed limits may undergo significant changes following the recent General Election. The board therefore recommends that AT does not progress the adoption and implementation of Katoa, Ka Ora until future Government policy direction is confirmed.

·         changes to the 362 bus route to improve overall coverage in Manurewa.

·         changes to train services related to the opening of the City Rail Link.

·         general improvements to service levels on other routes.

iv)         the board requests that the planned 367 bus route, including Eugenia Rise and Goodwood Drive, also be prioritised for introduction as soon as possible.

v)           the board requests that AT continue to work in partnership with the board on ways to increase the frequency, reliability, and extent of public transport services in Manurewa.

Actions

vi)         the board supports Introducing a weekly fare cap, to reduce the cost of regular use of public transport.

vii)        the board supports extending the transfer window (the time between tagging off of one service and onto the next, in which the same fare is applied to the journey), from 30 minutes.

viii)      the board supports improving the reliability of bus services, including with new bus or transit lanes, and giving late-running buses priority at intersections to get back on schedule.

Alignment with Local Board Plan

ix)         the board requests that the RPTP reference the following elements of the Manurewa Local Board Plan 2023 that relate to public transport:

·             Work with Auckland Transport and other partners to finish redeveloping the areas surrounding Te Mahia station to create a stronger presence and connection to Great South Road and the surrounding neighbourhood

·             Continue to work with Auckland Transport to improve the maintenance levels of our roads, footpaths, bus stops and bus shelters

·             Continue to work with Auckland Transport to ensure our train stations are safe, accessible and connect to public transport and active transport modes

·             Continue to support the free Manurewa Link Te Manurewatanga bus service

·             Increase the frequency and capacity of trains and buses to and from Manurewa and Clendon town centres and investigate piloting provision of on-demand ride share services, linking more of our communities to public transport hubs and increasing the range of transport options available to residents.

Other comments

x)           the board requests that further work be done to reduce to cost of public transport fares for users in low-income communities such as Manurewa where uptake of public transport is poor.

xi)         the board requests that AT look at ways to improve public safety and security at Manurewa, Homai and Te Mahia train stations, particularly in the evening.

xii)        the board requests that AT investigates trailing a version of AT Local, the on-demand ride share service operating in Conifer Grove, Takaanini and Papakura, for public transport users in Manurewa.

xiii)      the board requests that AT prioritise installing new bus shelters at bus stops that do not currently have shelters in areas with low public transport usage such as Manurewa to encourage increased usage. Bus stops that are more frequently utilised by residents travelling to work and school in the morning should be given highest priority for installation of shelters.

xiv)      the board requests that AT places a greater weight on addressing inequities of service provision, and providing communities of greatest need with increased public transport options and more affordable fares, when undertaking planning of public transport services.
