Reclassification of reserve land at Three Kings Precinct

File No.: CP2023/18131

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To seek approval from the Puketāpapa Local Board to reclassify part of the recreation reserve land at Three Kings Quarry to Local Purpose (utility) Reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977, to enable 227m² of the land to be used as a wastewater pumpstation.

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       Redevelopment of Three Kings Quarry by Fletcher Residential Ltd. (FRL) required a wastewater pumpstation to be built.

3.       The developer has largely completed the pumpstation.

4.       The location of the pumpstation is on land classified as recreation reserve.

5.       The Reserves Act 1977 requires the land the pump station is on to be classified for its principal purpose. A reclassification of the pumpstation land to Local Purpose (utility) Reserve is appropriate.

6.       There is a contractual obligation with Fletchers Residential Ltd to reclassify the land.

7.       Iwi engagement has taken place regarding this reclassification.

8.       The reclassification has been publicly notified as required by the Act and no submissions have been received.

9.       A resolution is required by the local board to enable reclassification of the reserve, after which the statutory action will be recorded on the title and in the New Zealand Gazette.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)   whakaae / approve the reclassification of Section 23 on SO 577174 (227m2) from Recreation Reserve to Local Purpose (utility) Reserve under Section 16 of the Reserves Act 1977.

 

Horopaki

Context

10.     Private Plan Change 372 for Three Kings Quarry was approved on 2 November 2015 to  rezone a large part of the former Winstones Quarry to enable a master planned residential development including council-owned sports playing fields.

11.     A resolution of the Auckland Development Committee meeting dated 12 November 2015, (AUC/2015/202), empowered the Chief Executive of Auckland Council and the Panuku Development Auckland Board to enter into a Land Exchange Agreement with Fletcher Residential Ltd to facilitate the outcomes of the Three Kings Precinct.

12.     On 30 June 2017 Auckland Council entered into an agreement with Fletcher Residential Ltd for the exchange and development of reserve land at Three Kings Quarry.

13.     Clause 2.5 of the agreement acknowledges that the new reserve land is intended to be recreation reserve, with the exception of the area of the wastewater pump station and subterranean tank which is to be classified as local purpose reserve.

14.     A gazette notice was published on 22 December 2017 authorising the exchange of reserve land which had the effect of converting Lot 2 LT Plan 514701 into recreation reserve.

1.            Figure 1: Plan showing S23 – Wastewater pumpstation

2.            Figure 2: Pumpstation as at 17 October 2023

 

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

15.     Lot 2 LT Plan 514701 forms part of a future sports park. Section 23 of SO 577174 is a subset of the park and has been surveyed to partition the pumpstation land.

16.     The wastewater pumpstation land (section 23) is required to be reclassified because Section 16 of the Reserves Act 1977 requires the following:

3.   Classification of Reserves

4.   To ensure the control, management, development, use, maintenance, and preservation of reserves for their appropriate purposes, the Minister shall, by notice in the Gazette, classify according to their principal or primary purpose, as defined in sections 17 to 23.    

17.     The principal use of Section 23 as wastewater pumpstation is substantially different to that of Section 22, a sports field which is classified as a Recreation Reserve.

18.     The land was not partitioned at the time of the gazette notice in 2017 as the scope and design of the wastewater pumpstation was not sufficiently developed to identify the exact land requirements. This was anticipated in Clause 2.5 of the agreement which states:

5.   Reserve Classification

6.   The parties acknowledge that the classification of the New Reserve Land is intended to be recreation reserve, with the exception of the area of the wastewater pump station and subterranean tank which is to be classified as local purpose (utility) reserve.

19.     As required by the Reserves Act 1977, the reclassification has been publicly notified and no submissions were received.

20.     Reclassification of reserve land follows a process required by section 24 of the Reserves Act 1977 which outlines the following remaining steps:

a)    Resolution by the Local Board approving classification of the reserve.

b)    Report to the Minister of Conservation’s delegate requesting to sign the required gazette notice recording the  classification resolution.

c)    Publication of the gazette notice classifying the reserve in the NZ Gazette.

d)    Request LINZ to register the published gazette notice against the Record of Title of the reserve for a permanent public record of the classification.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     The redevelopment of the Three Kings Precinct involves a large amount of civil works, and the construction of roads, infrastructure and dwellings. These activities support increasing population which increases the carbon footprint of New Zealand.

22.     Reclassification of the reserve is an administrative procedure and has minimal climate impact. The reclassification of part of the reserve outlined in this report does not introduce any new sources of greenhouse gas emissions and will not impact climate change. 

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     There are no other impacts to the wider council group or views of council departments required. The matter is an administrative one which reclassifies the purpose of land. Upon re-classification the land can properly be used for its purpose and the council will have met its obligations as administering body of the land under the Act.

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

Local impacts and local board views

24. The Local Board has been kept informed of the development by various meetings, memos and workshops.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

25. Engagement with mana whenua took place on 25 October 2023 at a regular council facilitated mana whenua forum. Whilst there were no specific comments regarding the reclassification, some iwi members expressed dissatisfaction with the engagement process.

26. In this regard the dissatisfaction was not related to the reclassification to a specific required purpose, but that the members felt they ought to have been included earlier for their input. Members were included in the plan change process since 2015 and in the resource consenting process, which outlined the requirement for the pumpstation and subsequently the specification of the land to be set aside for a pump station. There were no objections to the land being used for a pump station.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

27. The reclassification of the reserve has no financial implication as the development is funded by Fletcher Residential Limited. There are no financial implications to this administrative matter and financial advice has not been required or sought.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

28. Should the local board choose not to reclassify the reserve, then the council will be in breach of its contractual obligations with Fletcher Residential Ltd, and in breach of the Reserves Act 1977 in terms of its obligations as an administrator of the Act. There is a high level of compliance required of the council in administration of this Act, because the Act places a burden of administration on the administering body of land to complete and undertake statutory actions as required.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

29.     That the local board pass the resolution as recommended. Subsequently the administrative work by staff as outlined in paragraph 20 will culminate in the New Zealand Gazette recording the statutory action and titles being updated.

Puketāpapa Local Board Business meeting schedule - correction

File No.: CP2023/19025

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To correct the Puketāpapa Local Board business meeting date for their first business meeting in 2024 from Thursday, 01 February 2024 to Thursday, 15 February 2024 at Puketāpapa Local Board office, 560 Mt Albert Road, Three Kings

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       The Puketāpapa Local Board meeting schedule was adopted on 17 November 2023 resolution no: PKTPP/2022/1.  At the time an incorrect date was entered in the meeting schedule for the first meeting in 2024 it showed the 01 February 2024 when it should have been Thursday, 15 February 2024.

3.       The Puketāpapa Local Board resolved to hold their business meetings in the third week of the month.

4.       This report is correcting the meeting schedule to reflect the local board’s first meeting in 2024 will be Thursday, 15 February 2024 in the third week of the month at the Puketāpapa Local Board, 560 Mt Albert Road, Three Kings.

5.       The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) and the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA) have requirements regarding local board meeting schedules. In particular, clause 19, Schedule 7 of the LGA on general provisions for meetings requires the chief executive to give notice in writing to each local board member of the time and place of meetings. Sections 46, 46A and 47 in Part 7 of LGOIMA require that meetings are publicly notified, agendas and reports are available at least two working days before a meeting, and that local board meetings are open to the public.

6.       Adopting a meeting schedule helps with meeting these requirements. It also allows for a planned approach to workloads and ensures that local board members have clarity about their commitments.

7.       Frequency: One business meeting per month (excluding January) is sufficient for formal business to be considered. There are some instances for which the local board may need to have additional meetings for important decisions such as local board plans, local board agreements or to provide input into regional strategies, policies and plans. Local board meeting schedules will be updated with any additional meetings once those details are confirmed. Outside of its scheduled meetings, local boards can call extraordinary and/or emergency meetings as and when required.

8.       Timing: The standard practice in previous terms is to hold the monthly ordinary meeting in the final half of the month (weeks three or four) which enables local boards to prepare for any workshop items for these meetings in the first half of the month.

9.       Other matters: Commencing the business meeting during business hours will enable meetings to be productive, maximise access to staff and ensures best use of resources. Having the meetings in a set location ensures consistency and ability to use technology that is built into council facilities as required. This can include the use of screens, speakers and Wi-Fi connections that enable remote attendance.

Recommendation/s

That the Puketāpapa Local Board:

a)      whakaae / approve the correction of the first 2024 business meeting date from Thursday, 01 February 2024 to Thursday, 15 February 2024 at 10am, Puketāpapa Local Board office, 560 Mt Albert Road, Three Kings.
