Classification of part of Adams Park, Manurewa as recreation reserve

File No.: CP2023/18337

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.      To classify part of Adams Park, Manurewa as recreation reserve pursuant to section 16(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.      Adams Park is made up of three parcels of land, two of which are currently held as unclassified recreation reserve subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977. The third parcel is held under the Local Government Act 2002 and therefore is outside the scope of this report.

3.      The Reserves Act provides that all unclassified reserves vested in a local authority must be classified according to their principal or primary purpose. Auckland Council is therefore statutorily obliged to classify all unclassified reserves which it holds. This is undertaken under Section 16 of the Reserves Act 1977 and if not undertaken would mean that Auckland Council is not meeting its statutory obligations.

4.      Local boards hold the delegated authority under Section 16 of the Reserves Act 1977 to classify council held reserves, subject to all statutory processes having been satisfied. 

5.      Staff attended a mana whenua forum on 25 October 2023. No concerns were raised at the forum. In addition, staff contacted the relevant mana whenua representatives via email inviting iwi to submit their feedback by 15 November 2023. Staff did not receive any feedback on or objection to the proposed classification.

6.      Public notification is not required as the proposed classification is the same as the purpose for which the reserve has been held for.

7.      This report recommends that the Manurewa Local Board resolves to classify relevant parts of Adams Reserve, Manurewa as recreation reserve.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      resolves to classify, pursuant to Section 16(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977, the following parcels comprising Adams Park as recreation reserve:

·     Lot 1 DP 75167 Record of Title NA30D/981

·      Part Lot 1 DP 38510 Record of Title NA1127/73.

 

Horopaki

Context

8.      Classification is a mandatory process under Section 16(1) or 16(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977 which involves determining the principal or primary purpose of a reserve (e.g. recreation reserve, local purpose reserve, historic reserve, etc). When determining the purpose of the reserve, the present values of the reserve as well as the future “potential” values and the possible future uses and activities on the reserve are considered. 

9.      Auckland Council is required by law to classify all unclassified reserves which it holds. Auckland Council is not meeting its statutory obligations if classification is incomplete. 

10.    Two parcels of land making up Adams Park are currently held as an unclassified recreation reserve.

11.    To comply with the statutory requirement to classify reserves according to their principal or primary purpose, the parcels must be classified for their principal or primary purpose. 

12.    Local boards hold delegated authority under Sections 16(1) and 16(2A) of the Act to approve classifications of council owned reserves, subject to all statutory processes having been satisfied.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

13.    Adams Reserve (outlined red below) is located at 124A & 126 Maich Road, Manurewa.

Aerial view of a neighborhood

Description automatically generated

14.    The reserve is comprised of 3 defined land parcels legally described as:

·    Pt Lot 1 DP 38510 comprising 1727 m² retained in record of title NA1127/73

·    Lot 1 DP 75167 comprising 1918m² retained in record of title NA30D/981

·    Lot 14 DP 50875 comprising 685m² retained in record title NA3D/1272 (this parcel is held under the Local Government Act 2002 and is therefore not subject to classification).

15.    Pt Lot 1 DP 38510 and Lot 1 DP 75167 are currently held by Auckland Council as an unclassified recreation reserve, subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977.

16.    Pt Lot 1 DP 38510 and Lot 1 DP 75167 were transferred to the Manukau City Council (now Auckland Council) for a recreation reserve purpose.

17.    Adams Park is zoned Open Space – Informal Recreation Zone under Auckland Unitary Plan (operative in part).

18.    There are no natural resources, heritage layers or special character areas indicated within the reserve. However, GEOmaps identifies the area as prone to flooding.

Reserves Act 1977

19.    The Reserves Act came into force on 1 April 1978 and requires all reserves to be classified for their principal or primary purposes.  

20.    The Reserves Act 1977 requires the administering bodies to consider necessary or desirable activities on the reserve and to classify the reserve for such specified purpose.

21.    The purpose of recreation reserves is to provide an area of land suitable for sporting and recreational activities and enjoyment of the public with emphasis on the retention of open spaces and outdoor recreational activities.

Proposed classification – recreation reserve 

 

22.    The proposed classification also aligns with current use of the reserve as well as future intended use of the reserve. 

Engagement and Public Notification

23.    Engagement with iwi has been undertaken as per Section 4 of the Conservation Act 1987.

24.    Staff attended a mana whenua forum on 25 October 2023. No objections were received. On 31 October 2023 an email was circulated to all iwi groups identified as having an interest in land within the Manurewa Local Board area inviting feedback by 15 November 2023. Staff did not receive any feedback nor objections on the proposed classification from the notified iwi groups. 

 

25.    Public notification of the council’s intention to classify the reserve is not required as the proposed classification was undertaken pursuant to section 16(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977.  

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

26.    The proposal outlined in this report does not include any change in the current use of or activity on Adams Park and does not introduce any new source of greenhouse gas emission.

27.    The proposed classification is formalisation of the statutory requirement under the Reserves Act 1977 which is an administrative process and therefore will have no impact on climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

28.    The proposed classification has no identified impact on other parts of the council group. The views of council-controlled organisations were not required for the preparation of advice in this report.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

29.    The Manurewa Local Board holds the delegated authority under Section 16(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977 to approve classification of the reserve subject to completion of all statutory processes.

30.    The views and preferences of the local board in relation to the proposal are sought via this report.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

31.    There is no express requirement to consult mana whenua under the Reserves Act. However, section 4 of the Conservation Act 1987 states: 

 

Act to give effect to the Treaty of Waitangi 

 

This Act shall be so interpreted and administered as to give effect to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. 

 

The proposal to classify part of Adams Park was presented to the mana whenua groups identified as having an interest in land at Mana Whenua Forum on 25 October 2023. On 31 October 2023 an email was circulated to all iwi groups identified as having an interest in land within the Manurewa Local Board area.

 

32.    The deadline for mana whenua feedback on the proposed classification closed on 15 November 2023 and staff did not receive any objections to the proposed classification.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

33.    The proposed classification is an administrative exercise and will not result in any costs to the local board. All costs (if any) relating to the publication of a notice of classification in the New Zealand Gazette will be met by Auckland Council’s Parks & Community Facilities Department.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

34.    It is a statutory requirement that the reserve is classified.

35.    Should the Manurewa Local Board choose not to resolve to classify the reserve, this decision would mean that Auckland Council is in breach of its statutory obligations under the Reserves Act.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

36.    If approved, the resolution will take immediate effect and no further action is required. However, a notice of the classification will be published in New Zealand Gazette to ensure permanent public record of the classification.

The eligibility of each application is identified in the report recommendations.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

12.    The local board grants programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups for projects that support and enable community climate action. Community climate action involves reducing or responding to climate change by local residents in a locally relevant way. Local board grants can contribute to expanding climate action by supporting projects that reduce carbon emissions and increase community resilience to climate impacts. Examples of projects include local food production and food waste reduction; increasing access to single-occupancy transport options, home energy efficiency and community renewable energy generation; local tree planting and streamside revegetation; and educating about sustainable lifestyle choices that reduce carbon footprints.

20.    South Frequent Transport Network Notices of Requirement Overview

 

21.    NoR 1 (within the Manurewa and Papakura local board areas)

·   Comprises eight separate intersection upgrades for the Great South Road FTN route between Manukau and Drury.  Applies to a collective linear extent of approximately 2.5km of a total route length of 15.5 km, reflecting that the existing road reserve along Great South Road is sufficient to accommodate the desired corridor form and function for the majority of the route length (and therefore does not fall within the NoR 1 extent).

·   The eight Notices of Requirement sections provide for bus priority measures, walking and cycling facilities, upgrades to eight key intersections, replacement of the Otūwairoa / Slippery Creek bridge, and localised provision for stormwater treatment raingardens.  Four lane and three lane FTN arterial cross sections are used as a basis for concept design.

·   Approximately 171 affected properties.

·   Proposed lapse period of 15 years.

·   Recommended implementation between 2028 to 2038; highly likely to be in stages.

·   Possible construction duration: 2- 3 years (but this Notice of Requirement is made up of eight separate areas).

22.    NoR 2 (within the Papakura local board area)

·   Enables upgrades of approximately 520 m of Great South Road in Drury.  Not part of the FTN route but a “Key Connection”.

·   Enables two general traffic lanes per direction, walking and cycling facilities, replacement of the Hingaia Steam Bridge, localised provision of stormwater treatment raingardens, and an extension of one existing culvert.

·   Needs to integrate with three adjacent projects – SH1 Drury interchange, upgrade of Waihoehoe Road, and the Drury Train Station.  These projects are proposed to be implemented in the mid to late 2020s.

·   Recommended lapse period of 10 years.

·   Recommended implementation likely to be at the earlier ends of 2028 to 2038.

·   Possible construction duration: 2-3 years.

23.    NoR 3 (within the Manurewa local board area)

·   Enables upgrades of approximately 1.7 km along Weymouth and Alfriston Roads, and 590 metres along Great South Road.

·   Enables a four lane FTN arterial cross section for the Weymouth and Alfriston Road extent, and for part of its extent as it applies to Great South Road.  Enables bus lanes in both directions, walking and cycling facilities, upgrades and tie-ins to eight key intersections, replacement of the existing Weymouth Road bridge over the NIMT and the Alfriston Road bridge over SH1, and four stormwater treatment wetlands.

·   Approximately 430 affected properties.

·   Recommended lapse period of 15 years.

·   Recommended implementation between 2028 and 2038. Co-ordination with Weymouth bridge and replacement and future four tracking of rail.

·   Possible construction duration: 2-3 years.

24.    NoR 4 (within the Manurewa and Papakura local board areas)

·   Enables upgrades of approximately 3 km along Porchester Road between Alfriston Road and Walters Road, and for 0.5km along Popes Road between Takanini School Road and Porchester Road. Popes road is not part of the FTN route but a “Key Connection”.

·   Enables two vehicular traffic lanes, walking and cycling facilities, upgrades and tie-ins to six key intersections along both routes, and stormwater management devices comprising two treatment wetlands (on Porchester Road) and treatment swales (on Popes Road).

·   Approximately 99 affected properties. 

·   Recommended lapse period of 15 years.

·   Recommended implementation 2028 to 2038, possibly not fully implemented until the later end of this time range.

·   Possible construction duration: 1- 2 years.

25.    Technical report content

38.    Supporting Growth have advised that the upgraded and new transport corridors are not known to contain any Māori Land or documented sites of significance to mana whenua.  Parts of NoR 1 and the whole of NoR 2 fall within the Ngāti Tamaoho Statutory Acknowledgement Area, and Supporting Growth advise that Ngāti Tamaoho have been engaged as partners throughout the development of the project.

39.    Supporting Growth have advised that they engaged with mana whenua throughout the development of this project.  This included a monthly kaitiaki forum over the past five years dating back to the inception of Te Tupu Ngātahi, and at a project-specific level since the inception of the detailed business case process in 2021.  Nine iwi have a direct interest in the project area.

40.    Supporting Growth advised that mana whenua were invited to prepare Cultural Values Assessments or Cultural Impact Assessments in July 2023.  In response, the Supporting Growth team received CVAs in the form of report/documentation from Ngaati Te Ata Waiohua and Ngaati Whanaunga, and an in person oral CVA from Te Ākitai Waiohua.  Ngaati Te Ata Waiohua did not support their CVA being appended or provided to council to avoid information contained being misinterpreted or mistreated.

Financial implications

Risks and mitigations

44.    The power to provide local board views regarding the content of Notices of Requirement cannot be delegated to individual local board member(s).  To avoid the procedural risk of an individual local board member expressing the views of the local board, this report enables the whole local board to decide whether to provide its views and, if so, to determine what matters those views should include.

Next steps

45.    The reporting planner will include, and report on, any resolution of the local board in the hearing report.  The local board member appointed to speak to the local board’s views will be informed of the hearing date and invited to the hearing for that purpose.
