Marine asset planning, development of a network strategy, a research paper and review of the concept plan.
The Concept Plan for The Landing Park Reserve (The Landing) at Pokanoa Point, Ōkahu Bay was impacted due to two main factors; a lack of understanding about the marine assets in central Auckland and how its network of facilities exists, and competing views about what type of uses should take priority at the Landing.
The purpose of this project was to review the Concept Plan for The Landing. The document created was intended as a live planning resource which can be updated as planning at The Landing progresses.
TUA worked closely with Council stakeholders, Local Board members and industry representatives during the process to develop a strategy document.
TUA adopted a three-phase methodology that resulted in analysis and recommendations:
1) Document discovery and scoping.
2) International benchmarking: reviewing International benchmarks/ exemplar marine sport and recreation precincts and the literature on the value of blue networks and changing trends for community marine sports and recreation facilities.
3) Asset mapping: analysing the information and making a series of recommendations about how to advance the planning for both the Landing and the wider marine sport and recreation assets of central Auckland.
TUA has an ongoing role supporting the client to advance the recommendations. This work includes presenting the information and developing visual aids to support presentations to the Local Board, governing body and other stakeholders.
The ongoing planning for the Landing is to result from the report and is supported by ongoing advisory work from TUA.
TUA presented the document and its findings to the Client, to Council staff and Local Board members who reviewed the document and implemented the next steps for Council-led planning.
The document was used as a communication tool to better enable coordination among stakeholders and to inform the ongoing planning for and management of The Landing.
Having an in-depth understanding of the assets that exist within a sector, their uses, capacity and restraints has been key to cooridanted long term planning for a network of assets.
Adopting a coordinated approach to the strategic planning of a network ensures fit-for-purpose services and informed decision making regarding funding allocation and prioritisation can occur.
